I love old buildings. One of my favorite magazines growing up was This Old House, but not because I liked building or fixing things. In fact, the only page I really looked at was the last one that always featured some crumbling, dilapidated old house that was for sale.
I'm not sure what I exactly love about old buildings, other than the fact that they are unique and full of beauty, with little hidden corners and huge windows, stained glass and winding staircases. If I could, I'd probably explore every old building in my city.
The inspiration for this shoot came about when I saw this building for sale. It used to be an opera house, but now it sits abandoned (but for sale, in case you were wondering!), full of exposed brick walls and sunlit rooms. I had been envisioning a romantic shoot for Valentines Day and wanted to shoot in a historic building. While an abandoned building wasn't exactly what I had in mind, when the opportunity came to shoot here I immediately jumped on it! I am so glad I did. With help from a couple vendors I was able to create one of my favorite shoots to date. I hope you'll enjoy browsing through the photos.
