Build a Wedding Portfolio without the Wedding

Build a Wedding Portfolio without the Wedding

Documenting a dream(ed up) wedding

Most people end up following a certain path when they take up photography. Most begin with taking photographs of inanimate objects, trying to gain insight into how best to compose their photos, finding a style that they can call their own. Soon, they delve into taking portraits, and experiment with post-processing the photographs they take in order to bring out the absolute best in them. Pretty soon, would-be photographers begin to look into covering live events, and weddings are often on the top of their list.
But as any wedding photographer will tell you, the market has become quite congested, and booking a client can be quite difficult, especially if you’re new to the business. Most clients look for photographers who have an extensive portfolio, and ironically enough, most photographers struggle to build their portfolios because they can’t snag enough clients.
But if you’re thinking of coming into the wedding industry, you can build a portfolio of your wedding-related work by simply simulating some of the elements of the wedding. It’s important to focus on the things that you would be photographing if you were to be hired, such as the flowers, the gown, and the wedding cake.

Recreating a Wedding, Step 1: The Charming Couple

One of the most important aspects of wedding photography is being able to capture the emotions on the couple’s special day. In this case, instead of recreating a wedding, you could start off by showing examples of a prenuptial shoot. Read More

Las Vegas Photographers Brett & Jizelle PHOTO THIEVES attempt to Silence any who expose their thievery via threat of Defamation lawsuit

April 16, 2014 | By | 2 Comments

I just received a cease & desist letter from an attorney who says that he represents Brett & Jizelle Photography, Brett Baughman, Jizelle Ashley, and The Brett Baughman Companies. I have posted the letter below in full.

The issue at hand is photo theft and copyright infringement. Sadly, it is shockingly common for unscrupulous “fauxtographers” to steal the photos of actual working photographers, and then to try to pass those stolen photos off as their own.

The photography community is very lucky to benefit from the tireless efforts of Corey Doyle Balazowich, an excellent real photographer, who meticulously documents the nefarious work of fauxtographers before they have a chance to take down (and deny) their thievery.

Her website “Stop Stealing Photos” is a “wall of shame [that] is dedicated to photographers that feel that it’s okay to steal others work and post it as their own.” Read More

Kara and Patrick at Springs Preserve – the joys of Second Shooting

April 13, 2014 | By | No Comments

Sometimes my photographer friends invite me to 2nd shoot for them. Not only do I consider it a great privilege (thank you Josh Barut!). But I *love* second shooting, because it’s what I hear grandparenting is like – all the fun with none of the responsibility icon smile Kara and Patrick at Springs Preserve   the joys of Second Shooting  LOL

Because I’m not in charge of the timeline I’m able to have a little more fun. I’m there to capture stolen moments, unusual perspectives, details.

CaterSource Las Vegas 2014

April 10, 2014 | By | One Comment

We really enjoyed photographing CaterSource 2014 at the Las Vegas Convention Center recently, for our friends Michelle Howard, Debra Newson, and Christine Sanchez.

They asked us to capture some of the flavor and feeling of one of the VIP parties, and to photograph the TableScape competition the following day.

Nearly all the flowers you see below were provided by sisters Michelle Howard and Debra Newson of Flora Couture by Floral 2000 and Las Vegas Floral & Plant Wholesale, respectively.
