Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

You can always count on the Adirondacks for a White Christmas. I’m spending Christmas Day the way I spent my year — travelling and processing photos, since there are some fantastic end-of-season weddings left to show you. 2010 was truly a fantastic year, blessed with a wonderful girlfriend, my fantastic friends and family, and sharing […]

Stars in Her Eyes

Taken with the 24mm f/1.4. From Cai and Johnny’s wedding. I’m still getting files out to clients for the holidays, but I think I’ll hold off on full wedding blogs until I get back from Italy in the New Year. I also have a review of the Nikon 35mm f/1.4 ready to go for ’11! […]

Double Rainbow, all the way

Wendy and I were in Boca Raton for a wedding, and, given how freezing it is in NYC these days, we wanted to take as much advantage of it as possible. So we went for a long, long walk along the beach, watching the sandpipers run along the waves, making up stories about the owners […]

Diandra and Erick at Hudson Terrace

Sometimes you know that a wedding is going to be amazing but then it exceeds your expectations anyway. I’d talked with Erick extensively, going over all the details, but that can’t describe the obvious love he and Diandra have for each other, or even the fantastic style, beginning the day at the luxurious New York […]

Maureen and Jon at Giando on the Water

I’ve known Maureen from way back in the wild days of Internet, when I maintained a Fordham University message board, so I had been looking forward to her wedding from the moment she got engaged. And she didn’t disappoint one bit, from getting ready at the swanky Hotel Giraffe (though there are sadly no real […]

Review: Zeiss 100mm f/2 Makro

Specs and purchasing info. You know that Zeiss is serious about lenses when they retain the German spelling of “Macro.” And pixel-peeping, lens-lusting photographers are very serious about this lens, telling tales of its optical prowess almost mythological in scope. So while I waited (not so) patiently for my Nikon 35mm f/1.4 (which I will […]

Lauren and John: Battery Gardens wedding

I’ve already waxed nostalgic over the amazing sunset that graced Lauren and John’s wedding, but I haven’t yet said how fantastic the day itself was. The day was lively throughout, with streamers and bubbles marking their exit from a ceremony across the street at The Shrine of St. Elizabeth Ann Seton to the march to […]

Ting and Weiji: New York Botanical Gardens Wedding

I’ve put in my time at the Ivy Leagues, so when I say a couple is frighteningly educated I mean it. I think Ting and Weiji have 57 degrees between them, at rough count. Their wedding at the New York Botanical Gardens was perfectly tailored to their personality and the sunny, warm daytime feeling. Instead […]

The New PocketWizard Frontier

A little news for the photographers among you: I was recently honored to be a beta tester for the new Nikon-compatible line of PocketWizards. As someone who loves to use off-camera flash, but also loves high-speed-sync (Nikon calls this Auto FP), I was really excited. While it was fun having secret special status, I’m even […]
