Allison & Chris' Engagement

Lots of fun last night with Allison & Chris at Valley Forge National Park. We were just looking for a pretty place and I think it turned out well.



Kelly Durie got me thinking about this and I know I'll live to regret it.

In comments posted to my portrait blog (below) she referred to a picture of me at her wedding:

I'll admit there are times during formals when I go a little overboard. At Teena & Chris' wedding I was trying to show Teena how to sit on Chris' lap:

This kind of interaction doesn't fly with all my grooms.

And finally, most recently, is one of my favorite snaps from Lisa & Tim's wedding:

Lisa + Tim + The Bear

I've written before about my buddy Joe Craig.

Joe is an awesome shooter & helps me out a lot.

So Joe and I have a healthy sense of competition, always trying to out-shoot each other. One of the most important arenas of our pursuit is "the ring shot."

And on the occasion of Tim and Lisa's excellent wedding adventure Joe beat me hands down.

Who has ever shot the rings on the teeth of a bear?

Joe has.

Hats off to Joe.

06.17.07 Jess + Lindsay

I realized part of my delay in posting these weddings has just been my aversion to writing.

Putting words on a page has always been hard for me. Images come more easily.

So I'll skip the words and cut right to the images.

Please meet Jess & Lindsay. They are the kind of people you like immediately and think about long after they've left the room.

Do Unto Others

Today it was my turn in front of the camera.

I need a photo of myself on the website. Seeing a person helps me identify with them and somehow makes me feel like I know something about them. So I want a snap of myself on there.

So my buddy Joe Craig (still the second best wedding photographer on the East Coast) helped me out.

It was a totally wierd feeling seeing Joe point that thing at me. He did a great job considering what he had on my end of the camera.

Kristin + Ralph + Summer

We paid our $12 and rolled into the parking lot just off the beach in Ocean City, New Jersey.

I opened the car door and there it was: the smell of salt water, the sound of an arcade and the sight of surf.

It was the perfect summer trifecta.

It was me & Kristin & Ralph and it was just awesome.

Let me just say this: If you're young & good looking & in love, it's pretty darn easy getting a decent engagement shoot.

Especially if your willing to roll around in the sand.

Sorry about the sand in the car, Ralph. And thanks for the taffy.

I know, I know I know: I am hopelessly behind in updating the blog. This summer has been a wonderful whirlwind and I have had just a batch of awesome weddings. Big shout out to Rich & Heather & Lindsay & Jess & Mark & Susan & Kelly & Alistair & Kristal & Robert & Chris & Leanne.

I'll get more of these online, I promise.
