July 2007 Archives

We're heading off to our Ireland honeymoon tomorrow and, while rushing around to wrap up some recent work before we go (clearing my memory cards for the many thousands of photos I'll make in Ireland), I received a wonderful note from a couple who's wedding I photographed last summer. They had a cool August day (always welcome) at the beautiful Mt. Hope Farm. You're welcome and thanks, Theresa and Jason.

I just wanted to thank you again for being such a pleasure to work with. From the beginning, you have been friendly, patient with all of our millions of questions, and so quick to get back to us, no matter how many times I emailed you in a day. I feel like you really listened to us and captured our wedding day in a way that really reflects our style and personality.

During the wedding and reception, you got all of the important pictures, planned and unplanned, without us ever feeling like you were in our face or in our way. The formals were painless and you were really unobtrusive with the candids. I mostly forgot you were there during the reception, but when the proofs came back, it was clear you got everything!

My absolute favorite thing about our pictures is that you caught all of the important things about our wedding day and removed the things I didn't want to remember (like that awful sunburn on my shoulders). Your ability to digitally edit the photos made a big difference.

All of the prints and albums you made for us turned out gorgeous. We couldn't be more pleased that we chose you as our photographer. We will be recommending you to everyone we know, and we look forward to using you again in the future!

Another gorgeous day in Providence, RI for Michelle and Brandon's wedding. We started at the First Unitarian Church on Benevolent and Benefit Streets.

I'm not as verbose today as I'm heading off in an hour to photograph a wedding.

As if I didn't love photographing Jessie & Jeff's wedding enough (see their blog entry), to top it all off I received a very nice thank you note this week that I thought I'd share. There were also further thank yous written on the envelope along with a great sketch of a camera. You're so welcome!

What a gorgeous day Jennifer and Ken had for their beautiful wedding at OceanCliff. It's a photographer's dream when the sky is so blue and there are lots of white puffy clouds in the sky (it's also a photographer's dream when it's mostly cloudy, but not so much the bride's dream). Jen had a most spectacular veil and Ken surprised her in wearing his dress uniform. It was just a perfect June wedding day.

Look at that sky!

I try to find different things to photograph during the ceremony and the blue that Jen and Ken picked as one of their wedding colors went perfectly with the atmosphere.

I loved that veil.

It's a little hard to tell in this small online image, but this is actually a shot of Jen and Ken dancing in the middle of their crowd. See their smiling faces?

I was out in L.A. last week and as luck would have it I was right near one of the twelve 7-Elevens around North America that have been converted into Kwik-E-Marts as a promotional tie-in for the upcoming Simpsons movie. Even though these things are a bit of an over-the-top sham, this was pretty cool. Inside things weren't all that different, just some Simpsons characters and names slapped over things, but the exterior looked perfect, right down to the paint job and "El Barto" graffitti. The best thing inside was the authentic looking Simpsons donuts. I wouldn't put one in my body, but they sure looked cool.
