The soon to be groom is stationed out of the country for most of the year so trying to coordinate this engagement session was tough due to the time he was here state side. We planned on originally doing the session in Washington D.C but due to some plans the groom had made in NYC that weekend we could not reschedule so I decided to travel to NYC and make sure they were taken care of no matter what! Plans change all the time in this industry but we ended up with amazing photos and I was blessed to be a part of their NYC engagement!
Melissa and Boo love taking walks in the park, riding bikes together and spending time with friends. They made many new friends on this fun day in the park and the city as they strolled along the Beltline in Atlanta. Seen is this image, they even got the chance to rescue each other from grave danger! We feel certain these two will be able to weather any storm that comes their way!
My first wedding of the year was documenting the wedding of Ushma & Dasal at the gorgeous Woburn Abbey Sculpture Gallery in the UK. As we reached the end of their portraits the sun was starting to dip behind the abbey and I noticed this amazing opportunity to create a flare. No photoshopping was use in creating this image, just a Canon 1Dx and 24-70mm :)
I met this couple at a wedding fair and was thrilled when they booked me for their loveshoot and wedding in september. A stunning couple of which this picture is one of the loveshoot I took recently on a amazing venue.
Their love is so pure, I simply adore this series.
The moment i saw the sun coming over the roof putting a beautiful lensflare just in the middle where the bride and groom where standing closely in this beautiful environment, i knew this would be an amazing shot with this early morning light, the sun at the right place and this beautiful couple.
I just had to play with the right position to catch the best flare. Moments like this make my job as weddingphotographer awesome! The adrenaline and joy i feel in such a situation trying to catch the best shot... Just love it!
The groom wanted the drive a final round before he arrived on the wedding location. My first idea was to come in front of the car to shoot the car, the driver and the groom when they left. When he was leaving the parking place, he waved to one of his friends and that was the moment I have taken this shot.
I had a wishlist about places I wanted to have a photoshoot with a beautiful couple. This was one of them. In the heart of The Netherlands, Radio Kootwijk, stands a massive building. The light is fantastic, the floor is amaing...
My wishlist has shrinked!
While taking a romantic walk through a park in London with this gorgeous bride and groom, I saw an opportunity to capture their love amidst these beautidul tulips. I wanted to photograph them in a way that would present them as part of the flower garden.
The north shores of Lake Superior are dramatic and breathtaking, constantly showing its' power and beauty. So when the opportunity came to capture this wedding I was excited at the challenge.
I saw a rock formation jettisoning out from the shoreline and given the wind that was churning up the waters, knew this was the spot for something amazing. I had the couple carefully place themselves as close to the action as possible without putting themselves in too much danger. They knew they would get wet but were excited to hopefully capture the photo I hoped to take.
I told them that once in place, they needed to hold their pose until I said so as I needed just the right wave sequence to come in. After much patience on their part, the perfect wave hit and this was the result.
This couple was the best. Even though we didn't have a lot of time in between the ceremony and reception, and the rain was starting to come down, we made it work. So I asked the father of the bride to park his car in the middle of the street. I love the texture and the light bouncing off the cobblestone street with a slight view of the rain coming down.
To be honest this wedding was stunning from start to finish, the couple, the family, the friends, the venue and the weather!!
70% of the guests and the bride and groom had all travelled from Germany to celebrate their day in Lancashire UK.
I captured some awesome memories for this couple but the chandelier shot stole the show (in my opinion), when your venue has this kind of beautiful lighting it would have been criminal to not use it.
During the wedding we could not make many photos of a couple, so we decided to stay one more day in the Monasterio de Piedra, place of celebration of the wedding, to make some photos to the couple. It was a very complicated photo because we are inside a waterfall and the conditions were very bad. My assistant had to light me and for that we had to communicate by mobile phone because the cave is so dark that you can not see anything. The results were worth it.
These two were married at Ft. Jefferson in the Dry Tortugas National Park in an intimate ceremony involving only their officiant, their moms and me, their photographer. Immediately following the ceremony, which was held on the second level of the fort looking out at the ocean, the couple walked away for a few minutes to themselves and that is when I saw this beautiful moment unfolding between them.
The day of the shoot started off with all possible errors ... my assistant had forgotten to charge the spare batteries, second shooter's car broke down and wasn't reachable ..suddenly the weather turned cloudy ..and on top of that memory card wasn't getting detected by my camera.
Just blaming my luck,I stepped into the Bride's room and there it was ..most wonderful serene room I have ever been to and with a sigh of relief I started taking pictures excitedly. To add more good vibes ..the bride was one of the most patient persons I had met who was very supportive of my ideas and gave me ample time to try different compositions calmly.
Thus my day of errors ended up as the most perfect day where everything fell in right place and right time. Forever grateful for the family to trust me on recording their memories on their most important day of their lives.
