“But you know why I REALLY do [Wedding photography]?” from Anne Almasy on Huffington Post

November 23, 2013 | By | No Comments

I’m a nobody, so I hope nobody minds that I completely lifted this outstanding essay by Anne Almasy from the Huffington Post (with full attribution). It’s such an important point that I really want every bride-to-be to read it.

It’s directed to brides, who are so strongly influenced by all of the THINGS we see on Pinterest and Bridal Blogs and Bridal Magazines. Those are all very important.

But there is something MUCH MORE IMPORTANT about your wedding, and what your photographer captures. She says it so beautifully. I hope that all of my brides can summon the wisdom to see this long view through the clamor of Wedding Things.

The 8 Advantages of Using Speedlites vs Studio Strobes #Strobist

October 16, 2013 | By | 8 Comments

I am a #Speedlite #Strobist. Some of my heroes are Joe McNally, David Hobby, and Dave Black.

I’ve owned studio strobes for the past 8 years or so. Currently I own four White Lightning x3200s, and an Alien Bee ring flash with the MoonUnit modifier. I also own many softboxes, PocketWizards, sync cords, power cords, shot bags, and everything else one needs to use studio strobes well.

Before & After – The Importance of Custom Hand-Finished Photos

October 10, 2013 | By | No Comments

I just finished two very long days editing a recent full wedding.

I hate to admit it, but I can spend 15 to 20 hours editing a full wedding. I labor over each image, doing everything I can to make sure that the image, and my clients, look their very best. In the case of this wedding I just finished editing, we shot about 2,100 images on three cameras, and I delivered 1,500 fully finished images. (BTW, that’s way more than I should or want to deliver. I always try to get the final count down to under 1,000, but I deliver the images I would want to see from my own wedding, images with feeling, friends, fun.)
