When in the studio, I try to aim for an image that you would actually use on Facebook. That may sound kind of an odd thing to aim for, but it is the perfect gauge of whether or not a photograph reflects how you see yourself.
Some couples have such a natural chemistry that taking photographs of them is almost too easy. Danielle & Michael are one of those couples. Had a great time with them this weekend! Click the images below to see them larger.
What an awesome time I had at Chris & Carly’s wedding in Falmouth, Maine at the the Audubon Society on Gilsland Farm. Wild turkeys and animals roamed the apple orchards and open fields as the sun set over the autumn foliage. It sort of felt like a Disney movie in real life. Their color scheme, flowers, and decorations were beautiful. All the best to Chris & Carly and their new life together as husband and wife!
What an amazingly nice and kind couple. I’m lucky enough to have had all amazing clients so far, but working with Laura & Damon was a real joy. Very laid back and content people make my job that much more enjoyable. Thanks guys and all the best!
The best thing about growing in any profession is the clarity that comes with time, experience, and endless hours of trial and error. And believe me, I’ve had endless mistakes and ideas that just never worked out. But one of the things I’ve learned over time is that simple is usually the best way to go. For this image, we used gold eye glitter, gold earrings, and sprayed on gold glitter to the back of a black foam core board to use as the background.
Flowerfield in Saint James, NY on Long Island is a gorgeous place for a wedding. Not only are the grounds amazing (bridge over a pond, swans, vineyard, apple orchard, etc.) but the interior reception area is surrounded with live trees, a huge koi pond with a bridge over it, and live plants surrounding the area planted directly into the ground. Very cool. Congratulations to Tony and Jess!
Having taken an early retirement as a college dean three years ago, I joined Americorp as a VISTA (Volunteers in Service to America) working with college students involved in community service projects.
Getting a good expression can’t be practiced. I know you all have that bathroom mirror look honed to perfection, but that hardly works in a portrait. You’d be surprised what people think looks “sexy”. In reality, it boils down to being yourself and letting go.
