First Post

Hello, and thanks for checking out my blog! This is just going to be a way for me to share some news and photos from weddings, as well as other stuff that may be interesting or relevant. Feel free to post comments and ask questions.

Right now I am in the middle of my busiest wedding season to date. I really can't help but wish there were more hours in the day! And I have to thank all of my wonderful brides for choosing me to photograph their wedding, and then for spreading the word about me - being this busy is a GOOD thing, and I couldn't have done it without your support!

Even though it's been a little over three years since I started, I still get anxious before every wedding - in a good way. I always anticipate how the day will progress, what kind of flowers will be used, what music is going to be played, and of course what the bridal gown looks like! I have met so many great people in this business, both in the wedding industry and also the families and friends of the couples I photograph - this is truly rewarding work.

Today I am finishing up the wedding of Christine and Matt - and going through my assistant's photos I found this one, of me checking out the image in the back of the camera. I really liked the soft light by the window, and I prefer to photograph brides in natural light if possible.

The resulting image looks like this:

I'll be back to post more from this wedding later :)
