Wedding: Dora and Josh

Watch the full slideshow here (or click “continue reading” below) 2009 was without a doubt the craziest year of my life, and I was so glad that I could end the wedding season with a couple as nice and fun and Dora and Josh. The mixture of Eastern and Western heritage started early, with the […]

Putting the “AQ” in “FAQ”

A couple weeks ago, I got hooked up in the “Ask me a question” Formspring meme that was going around, and you can see all my answers (and ask me more) here. While I didn’t get as obsessed with it as some photographers … *cough* Jonas Peterson *cough* … it was a lot of fun […]

Photo of the Day: Weddings in the Matrix

Note to DJs: Please stop using red and geen laser dots. Chicken pox are generally not a good look. In this case, though, I just went with it, shot at f/1.4 with the ambient light, and let the laser lights fill in the scene … including the groom’s mouth. From Phil and Stephanie’s great wedding. […]

How many other wedding photographers choose not to […]

Album: Kindiya and Thomas

Generally, this time of year is devoted to putting together sample albums from the previous year. I may delay that a bit, because I’m mostly working on making sure my February 6 workshop is as great as possible, but I couldn’t resist putting together a sample album for Kindiya and Thomas. You may actually see […]

Wedding: Jenny and Chris (Fox Hollow, Long Island)

Watch the full slideshow here (or click “continue reading” below) I knew I was going to like Jenny and Chris right from the start of the engagement session. We were shooting in the Bronx Botanical Gardens — a very pretty place, but with a pretty serious limitation that your movement is severely restricted to the […]

Photo of the Day: A Kiss from the Sledgehammer

I freely admit that I am not, generally speaking, a subtle photographer. You don’t really have to spend much time looking at most of my photos and pondering “But is it … art?” I like big and brash and fun and crazy and romantic and daring and colorful and … you get the picture. So […]
