The Marriage of Tony & Debbie

So my 3rd wedding was a blast. My 2nd time working with Chris Hayes Photography & it didn't disappoint. It started at the brides mother's house and then we were off to the Visitation of the Blessed Virgin Mary church. Then for the 2nd time in 3 weeks , the Pinecrest Country Club. The family & friends were great & Debbie looked amazing & really gave us some memorable shots. And of the course, the reception was wild! The slideshow will be up soon but here are my pics of the day. Congratulations Tony & Debbie! And thanks again Chris.

Last minute Gold! The Wedding of Farrell and Serrita.

So Serrita calls me on a Monday, explains her wedding is on Friday and she wanted me to shoot it. Ummm.. Ok . I was available and since I love to shoot, why wouldn't I want to do it? . Thankfully the pastor was late (God works in mysterious ways huh) which gave me the opportunity to shoot some candid moments which added to the slideshow's effectiveness . Serrita, Farrell and the family were a pleasure to work with, very professional and I think we all ended up happy. Actually, Serrita called me and at 1st I thought something was wrong because I couldn't make out what she was it was, she was crying because she enjoyed the slideshow so much . She told me that if we never spoke again, she wanted to know "she loved me for what I did." That was awesome and one of the reasons I enjoy being a photographer so much. Enjoy the pictures and the slideshow and congratulations to Serrita and Farrell. I wish you guys nothing but the best in your life together!

My 1st wedding...With a BROKEN camera!

Let me explain. I upgraded my equipment and purchased a shiny new Canon 5D mark II.  Unfortunately for me  I didnt get to test it out enough before my 1st wedding came up. UH-OH. My best shots were left for dead in my recycle bin never to come back! Luckily I was 2nd shooter and Chris Hayes got what he needed for this wedding and I was left to try and salvage something from my 1st wedding experience. All in all, I learned alot and had fun doing it. These are not indicative of what I can do as you will see in above posts but I felt I should share the experience, so enjoy.
