To be clear, we approve. ;)
Why do we keep shooting weddings? They're long, difficult, competitive...the average lifespan of a wedding photographer is about 4 years. Well. not lifespan, but you know what I mean. People burn out, why do we keep doing it?!
The main point is they're really fun for us. For whatever reason, we still get excited, still see them as an interesting challenge, and still get a thrill out of seeing two people in love tying the knot. We love being a part of it.
The other point is that we have great clients. We work with clients we like, and who like us, and who have a huge variety of wedding types. In the last month we've shot the weddings of a pair of slightly avante garde 20 year olds at a mountain retreat, a pair of 50 year olds on their second go at a golf club, 30 year hipsters at a swank downtown venue, and a pair of happy lawyers at the family home. The common denominator? I'm not sure, but we all got along great when we first met, and their weddings were awesome to be a part of. I hope the common denominator is they liked our style, kknew we were excited to take part, and knew we would be a fun and calming presence on their wedding day.
Weddings are awesome.
We're photographing destination weddings again.
After a break of several years, some commercial work involving travel that assuaged my nerves with respect to traveling with gear, and the boy growing up a bit, we're back in on destination weddings.
Oh, photographing this amazing wedding in Mexico got me pumped as well!
We've shot weddings in the Caribbean, Ireland and all over the US, and we'll be posting some of them soon, so stay tuned.
Thorpewood is situated north of Frederick, back in the woods. As you drive in, ignoring the GPS because it doesn't work very well up there, you'll pass a waterfall and a grove of pines, and it feels like you've arrived at summer camp. At least that's how I feel when I get up there, and I REALLY liked summer camp.
Laura and Eric were married under a tree, surrounded by their closest friends and family in a unique and personal ceremony. I was honored and happy to be a part of it.
Congrats guys, that was awesome!
We love shooting weddings at the Fairmont Hotel, and we love to do it with awesome people! This one was so much fun.
Thanks Kira and Jay, and thanks to Elegance and Simplicity wedding planners for doing such a great job!
Jess and Alex were married in a Russian Orthodox church in downtown Washington D.C. and then headed to Meadowlark Gardens for their reception. It rained, but that was ok, weddings aren't about weather, right?
Really, I need to get back to this church.
