Nearly four years ago I photographed Sheri’s sister’s wedding in Baltimore. It was beyond fun to reunite with such a fun family to photograph Sheri’s elegant nuptials to Seth in Boston.
A few weeks before meeting Sheri, Seth ate a cookie with this fortune tucked inside which he saved. Soon after, he met Sheri and he waited to reveal its message until their rehearsal dinner, presented in a Tiffany locket.
We’ve been so swamped with work as the busy summer wedding season kicks into full swing. That means our blogging is a little neglected right now. But we’ve got some fun shoots lined up for you all.
Steve and Alice were gracious enough to host us at their place in Boston for their engagement shoot. We got an up and close personal view into their lives. Steve is doing his residency as a doctor while Alice gets to play scientist all day at work. I think they enjoyed their time off from their intense work life to go out and play with us.
When Polaroid announced that it would no longer sell its iconic instant film, you just knew they were coming up with something super cool to complement the new digital lifestyle. With so many guests having digital cameras and cell phone cameras now, why not just let them print a picture from their own camera? But it would be such a hassle to set up a printer and make sure it has enough ink. That’s why you’re going to flip over the new PoGo Printer- inkless, wireless, bluetooth and pictbridge enabled, this is one super tiny hand-held printer! The secret is in the ZINK photo paper and each photo is a 2″x3″ stick and peel so that you can slap those photos instantly into any album. Seriously, this little baby looks like a ton of fun. I feel like going to Target, Best Buy, or Urban Outfitters right now to see if I can play with one in stock! Check it out!!! (only downer is that it’s NOT compatible with iPhone - BOO!)
Psst.. You can get one from Amazon for $94.99
NOTE: Due to the size and type of printing, my guess is that the quality is not going to be stellar on these little prints. However, if you’re just looking for something fun and you like techno-photo novelties, this is right up your alley!
What do you get when you combine an organic creamery and two people in love? Jessica & Ben’s wedding!
I believe that Jessica & Ben are the FIRST couple to be married at Trader’s Point Creamery in Zionsville, IN! With its rolling hills, pastoral views, intimate loft, and DELICIOUS local and organic foods, what’s not to love?!
I’m pretty convinced that if I could do my wedding all over again, I would want it to be just like Lauren & Eric’s!! Everything was absolutely perfect!
Kristin & Tyson, sittin’ in a tree, K-I-S-S-I-N-G….
Sharyn & Matt are amazing people. I tried to come up with some clever analogy to somehow describe why they are so amazing, but everything just seemed to fall short of being an accurate summation of their amazingness. Let me put it this way… these are the kind of people who change the world, for the better. Now that I’ve completely built them up, let me show you just how cool, humble, and down to earth their wedding was and why I have such a crush on them…
Jenn & AJ were the first couple I photographed when I first moved to Terre Haute in 2006! AJ went to Indiana State University and learned how to fly at the local Sky King airport, and even though neither of them live there now, they made a special trip back to Terre Haute to capture these personal locations in their engagement pictures! It was so fun to get a mini-tour of the places that were so fond to him in college.
Yesterday the Wedding Photojournalist Association announced its Q3 Contest Winners and I was excited to see that two of my images placed in the contest!
This image was from Moreen & Tommy’s wedding in Chicago, IL this year. Unfortunately a family member’s car had a flat tire which needed to be repaired in between the ceremony & reception. You just never know what will happen, so it’s always good to have a back up plan!
Last week I received an email from a bride who was feeling a little uneasy about the turn around time on her wedding photos. She had been in contact with her photographer but wanted to gain a little more perspective on the matter and asked me if I could help (she had wanted to hire me originally, but I was already booked.) She said that she loved her enagagement photos and even the preview photos that she had seen from her photographer, yet something was still bothering her to make her feel uneasy about the remaining images she hadn’t seen yet. I don’t feel comfortable sharing her email since it contains sensitive personal information, but she did mention that she had a friend who attended the wedding, took pictures, and put them online the next day- which added to her confusion as to why the remaining images from her professional photographer would take so long. I’m sharing my response here in hopes that it can help other brides understand some of the behind-the-scenes workings of a wedding photographer. (photos from some of my recent weddings, just for fun)
