  • Rehearsal Dinner Party

  • Although I'm asked to photograph quite a few Rehearsal Dinner Party's, images from the "Main Event" often trump photos from the "Day Before". But Jessica & Avery's Rehearsal Dinner Party was something special so I wanted to share a few with you.The Rehearsal itself was a very fun, relaxed affair..[...]
  • Bridal Portrait

  • Since most brides-to-be don't want their fiance to see their wedding gown before the Big Day, I rarely get a chance to showcase any Bridal Portraits for fear that the groom-to-be might go peaking on our website. So today I thought I'd just post a few of my favorite Bridal Portraits from recent sessi[...]
  • Blast from the Past

  • So this past weekend an old buddy of mine from my college days decided to drop in...all the way from Michigan! Jeff "The Knappster" Knapp and I went to college together many years ago and played on the tennis team together. He and I, along with my other good tennis team friend Jeff Wayner, were k[...]
  • Imaging is Everywhere

  • I know it's not Halloween YET. However, everyone seemed to get a kick out of the photo of my optic nerve earlier this month. So I thought I'd share this digital panoramic X-Ray image from my trip to the dentist this morning. Dr. Hilton and his staff have taken EXCELLENT care of my teeth over the yea[...]
  • Brittany & Chas

  • It was a warm, but BEAUTIFUL day when Brittany & Chas got married last weekend. And I could not have asked for two more WONDERFUL people to work with! Chas is a true charmer and the definition of a gentleman. Brittany is a southern lady through and through...sophisticated, elegant, full of life,[...]
  • Foodie

  • I had a really neat "foodie" shoot for Star Foods yesterday. Owner John Mitchell, his wife Gloria, and his assistant April were all FANTASTIC to work with. The two new food products I photographed will be used to feed our military overseas. This tasty pork chop is one of them. And, yes, we ate whil[...]
  • Nikon's Latest

  • I haven't written a journal entry about equipment in a long time. Clients these days are so much more informed than even just a decade ago. (Back then, we didn't have the Internet on which to do research!) That's why we keep a current list of our equipment in the Gear Box on our website. We believe[...]
  • We're FINALLY Moved In!

  • It's been a looooong process, but Cami and I are FINALLY starting to feel settled in to our new home. We still have plenty of nick-knacks to hang on walls and sample portraits to hang in the studio upstairs. But yesterday we finally completed the last of the major modifications. So I went out this [...]
  • Rebecca & Rafael

  • Rafael and I play on the same USTA Tennis Team. So photographing his wedding was kind of like hangin' out with a friend for a day! In fact, I tried to get him to pose in his tux with a tennis racquet over his shoulder, but of ALL the days that neither of us had our gear in our cars, this was one [...]
  • Studio Photography & Design

  • So what do I do in my spare time? I devour a plethora of photography magazines of course! :-) One of my favorites is Studio Photography & Design. Recently they asked a bunch of us "pros" the question "Is a Pro Photographer Wannabe Cutting Into Your Business?". It's an interesting article. And since[...]
  • i-photo

  • Take a GOOD LOOK...this is where it all starts. This is where I visualize the images I create!Cami and I work hard to stay fit, eat right, and live healthy. Of course part of that means visiting our health care providers to make sure everything looks good. So I paid a visit to Dr. Elizabeth Sharpe [...]
  • Carolyn & Bill

  • I frequently have the privilege of traveling to other cities to photograph weddings. I enjoy the change of scenery and the chance to work in NEW venues that I haven't photographed in before. It keeps my photography "fresh" and helps prevent me from getting complacent or stuck in a creative rut. [...]
