Hello loyal blog viewers/readers, let’s talk. I really really really love making photographs at weddings. It’s such a rush and a blessing to photograph for a bride & groom on their special day. All the pressure to pull off the shots, capture the moments and seamlessly blend it all together, in a timely fashion and deliver the end product of a disc, prints or an album. It’s this wild dance of art, communication, and being constantly faced with less-than-ideal photographic conditions that for some reason I love every minute of it. I could go on and on about why I like this stuff so much, but I think you get the drift.

First, a big thank you to Jen (makeup), LJ, DavidBrentJason and the models: Brittany, Anna Lee, Kaitlyn, Maggie, Erin and Kelly. Without you guys I’d just have random photographs of white walls and vintage chairs. That’s fine if you like that sort of thing, but for me, people make the photo.

For quite some time now I’ve had a desire to explore photography on a different branch. What if I photographed outside the constraints of a wedding? It’s an interesting thought which I’ve finally acted on. Jen and I rounded up some of her friends for an all afternoon/evening photoshoot. Allow me to show you what I came up with earlier this week. Over a span of 6 hours we managed to fit in 6 models, two locations, three pizzas and a two liter of coke.

There are loads more to share, but I will make a new entry for the photographs I shot in the studio. If you or someone else you know would like a truly unique portrait session, let’s talk. I’m currently offering a referral incentive to any high-school seniors looking to have their portrait made that expresses their unique personality and style.

Some of my helpers: Jen, LJ & David

Jen did a great job with her makeup and Brittany did a great job clapping, laughing and looking serious.

Fantastic location, fantastic model, fantastic props, fantastic everything.
