Honored and Nervous to shoot a famous Australian Photographer, Yikes!

June 26, 2012 | By | No Comments

I was honored recently when Natalie Howe, one of the most successful, awarded and famous wedding & portrait photographers in Australia chose FogartyFOTO to do some portraits of her and her beautiful family here in Las Vegas.

Her husband and she had an uber-fun renewal  ceremony @ Graceland Wedding Chapel (why Graceland? ‘cuz Bon Jovi got married there! of course! 🙂 )

Natalie and Chris have been married 81/2 years (very important not to forget the 1/2, right Chris?)

My wife Chris & I met Natalie and her husband Chris and their son Tom and Natalie’s fellow photographer Kate Lindsay at Graceland, and off we went!

Natalie is so use to posing her own clients, she automatically posed herself and her family!  Nice job Natalie!  Even Kate got in on the action by assisting Steve with some gear.  She is so use to being Natalie’s assistant, it was pure instinct.   We had so much fun with these guys.  We did a lot in a short time.

The only thing we didn’t do was ” throw another shrimp on the barbie!”  Maybe next time.  Have a fun rest of your vacation traveling all over the US.

As they had some Vegas things to do – shows to catch, parties to make – we didn’t have that much time. But that didn’t stop us from making some awesome magazine-style portraits.

This shot was taken by Kate from inside the air conditioned car on this 108º Vegas day.

You wouldn’t know it from the photos but one of these folks is suffering from heat stroke or the like – not enough snickers bars & water to fend off the intense Vegas sun. They were all good sports about it and we shot through it.

This was truly one of the most rewarding and fun photo shoots we’ve ever done!

Locations: Graceland Wedding Chapel, Boulder Dry Lake Bed, Nelson / Eldorado Canyon, NV

Wedding Cinema vs Your Cousin Jimmy

June 19, 2012 | By | No Comments

I want all of my clients to understand the enormous difference between professional wedding cinematography and a home video made by a talented relative or friend.

Wedding videography has evolved dramatically in the last 10 years to the point where the better work now more resembles a high-quality Hollywood film – with tight editing and gorgeous lighting and moving storytelling – than the static, blurry, shaky, amateur work of old.

If you’re considering letting your Uncle Bob or good friend make the video for your wedding, I hope you’ll first take a look at the samples below.

The first video – labeled “Uncle Bob” – is borrowed from YouTube, and is representative of what you’ll get from a non-professional.

The film clips below Uncle Bob’s – labeled “Lighten Films” – represent the kind of excellence you can expect from a modern, full-time wedding cinematographer, like Terrence Lighten of Lighten Films here in Las Vegas.
