No Rain on Their Parade

Generally when it rains on an outdoor wedding and I say “it didn’t faze them for a minute,” it’s a figure of speech. Even couples with the broadest perspective will have a minute of “Oh man, we were going to have a gorgeous outdoor wedding and now we can’t … oh well, we’ll have fun […]

The Sky Right Now

Not Photoshopped to heck; it actually looks like that. 23 images with a new lens I’m testing for B&H (the Tamron 24-70 VC). You can buy a print of this here. For this I recommend a wide print like the 12×24″. The watermark will not be in the printed image. Well, hello entire world. Nice […]

NYC Yale Club Wedding: Nicole and Dave

It was an absolutely gorgeous day in midtown for Nicole and Dave’s Yale Club wedding — gorgeous enough that a marching band and gang of dancers got in on the action. Nicole’s best friend and maid-of-honor Sharrone runs wedding videography studio Fiore Films, so she had some insider help on creating an absolutely gorgeous, elegant […]

Kelsie.

I’ve already shown some of Kelsie for the Olympus review, so I figured I’d dive right in with the rest, so to speak. One of the most important goals for my professional life is to always keep my passion for shooting. It sounds self-centered to focus on my own joy, I suppose, but really the […]

Olympus Tough TG-1 Review

Specs and purchasing information Pocket digital cameras are in an existential crisis these days. Their main selling point — taking up little space so that you have something you can take pictures with at all times — is being completely dominated by camera phones. No matter how small or light a camera gets, it can […]

Bryant Park Grill wedding: Chika and Andrew

This feels like a long time coming. When I first photographed Chika and Andrew, they knew they were getting married … someday. In some hemisphere. But that was about it. You see, even though their ties to the U.S. and New York run deep, they currently happily live in Japan. Sadly I didn’t travel to […]

The Air Up There

I’m returning from Boise now, where I shot an episode of the FRAMED show, and I can’t wait to see the finished product. So what does one of the busiest wedding photographers around do once he’s in a new town with a weekend off? Why not shoot a wedding? And then spend all the next […]

Coming soon: Chika and Andrew

Gorgeous day at the Bryant Park Grill. As another example of how staggeringly massive and detailed photos are when you combine the D800 with the Brenizer method, here is a 100 percent crop: — Camera: Camera: Nikon D800 Lens: 52-image “Brenizer method” panorama with the Nikon 85mm f/1.4G (equivalent of 28mm f/0.45 according to Brett’s […]

Banyan Tree Mayakoba destination wedding: Spencer and Danielle

I’m not saying that Spencer and Danielle’s Banyan Tree Mayakoba wedding in Playa del Carmen was wild. What I’m saying is that the same people introduced themselves to me on three separate days, because they’d forgotten we’d already met and had several long conversations. Fun. Crazy. Awesome. Sweet. And, oh boy, endurance. This is what […]

Lightning Strikes Twice

After the fireworks, Mother Nature decided to put on her own show. Hand-held. I managed to hold my 85mm at 1/10th of a second, but still not an easy thing to capture. As much as I’d like to say this was all skill, photography is the art of being prepared to be lucky. — Lens: […]

Happy 4th of July!
