Kat and Zak: 10.3.09

Watch the full slideshow here (or click “continue reading” below) Oh, Internet, you tricky beast. Kat told me that when she stumbled across my site from an Internet search, she said “This is exactly what I’m looking for! We found him! Good thing he lives in Washington D.C.!” “… oh, wait.” Luckily, they decided to […]

Sara and John: 9.26.09

Watch the full slideshow here (or click “continue reading” below) Blue. Hill. Stone. Barns. Four syllables, and that’s really all Sarah had to say to get me psyched for this wedding. Great food is one thing, but great food made from a farm about fifty feet away and prepared by exquisitely trained chefs? Bring it […]

On Hometowns

Like most of my ruminations, this will be largely populated by iPhone photos. Like so many other photographers who think in exceedingly technical ways for their jobs, I find something freeing about a camera with no settings at all, and no hope of true technical excellence. That said, even shot through a train window you […]

Stacey and Rick: 9.25.09

Watch the full slideshow here (or click “continue reading” below) Photographing Stacey and Rick’s wedding presented a very welcome challenge — I figured, just for variety’s sake, they might want a few shots where they’re not laughing. Not an easy thing to do with a couple who have as much fun together as these two. […]

On Facebook, nomenclature, and getting bloggy

I think about twenty minutes after declaring on one of my two favorite wedding photography forums that I would never, ever start a Facebook Business Page, I started a Facebook Business Page. You can find it here. Why? Technical issues. When I post preview photos after each wedding (and, for the 2010 season, I will […]

Katie and Lou: 9.19.09

Watch the full slideshow here (or click “continue reading” below) All you need to know about Katie and Lou can be summarized here: I’ve seen personalized bobbleheads before. But only two engineers — who also decided to build their own amazing photobooth with built-in computer — would take the bobbleheads apart and put them together […]

Jaime and James: 9.18.09

Watch the full slideshow here (or click “continue reading” below) I talk to clients a lot about how I try to personalize weddings, and make sure that the story I’m telling is the story of how it felt to be there that day, and what made their wedding different than other weddings, not just “oh […]

Dara and Chris, 9.13.09

Watch the full slideshow here (or click “continue reading” below) If all of my clients, potential clients, and especially Dara and Chris themselves could skip the next paragraph, I’d greatly appreciate it. I really shouldn’t get paid to have as much fun as I did shooting Dara and Chris’s wedding. OK, where were we? Dara […]

Sharon and Rich: 9.12.09

Watch the full slideshow here (or click “continue reading” below) Sharon and Rich had a wonderful wedding at the gorgeous Peabody Essex Museum in Salem, Mass, filled with grand halls, spiral staircases, and beautiful art that is, of course copyrighted and not photographable for commercial purposes, so you’ll just have to go see it yourself.

On Borders

For most of my digital photography career, I was pretty anti-border. They’re so … artificial. But, long story short, I show a lot of my work on Flickr, and Flickr has a terrible user interface for the display of art. I needed something to separate my photos from the other design elements. And the same […]

So You Think You Can Dance?

Jessica and Matthew’s wedding featured in ESSENCE!

I’ve been so busy doing what I can for my wonderful clients that I’ve never submitted my work to a single publication — probably what led to the DWF feature on me last month hailing me as a “hidden treasure.” Given that, it’s always exciting when someone else does it for me! Jessica and Matthew’s […]

The “No-Input Internet” experiment

It’s probably no surprise that a guy with a Web column and almost 10,000 pending Flickr friend requests is kind of into the Internet. (I’ll get around to re-adding you guys someday, I promise!) But I don’t know if it’s simple age, life experience, or brain chemicals that finally made me realize that I don’t […]
