Wet NYC Wedding Photography

I am more of a hat guy than an umbrella guy and I always laugh when I see people ducking to avoid getting hit on the crowded streets of NYC by the virtual sea of umbrellas on the sidewalk. might need both a hat and an umbrella. It is pouring. Like cats and dogs. Like building an arc type of rain.
Here is a glimpse of my walk to the office, caught with my cameraphone. What does this have to do with Wedding or realestate photography? You want someone who can view the same scene a hundred times and still create new and exciting ways to see it. Someone who can tell the story visually in an dynamic way. I limit myself to only shoot 15 Weddings per year, so I can give full attention to my Bride and Grooms. They are more than clients. They are customer relationships that often turn into friendships. This type of personal can't get that from the "wedding factories" that pump out 3 weddings a weekend all year long. And it shows in the results. Your day is unique and special. Your images should be too.
Use the "contact me" button on my website and let's talk about your upcoming event to see if I am the right fit for you.

Janeda & Michael Married at The Sands

Could not ask for a better day and the beach was just right for some fun photos.

Janeda looked stunning and while Michael and his groomsmen were in classic tuxedos with the reds to match the theme.
There were few dry eyes in the house after two very special readings just before they took their vows.

I was fortunate to be able to work with Amos Chen as my second shooter. You can see Amos' work here:

Amos has a great eye for romantic shots. He is part of a group of pro photographers I train and work with and was part of the group on last Wednesday's NYC PhotoWalk Field Trip. I have not gotten around to editing the images yet from that trip, but you really want to check out these two links to see it!

If you stand around with a camera in NYC, nobody even sees you. But, get 15 photographers setting up lighting in Central Park and shooting some awesome models....EVERYBODY stops and wants to see the celebrities!

No additional All Star Parade Coverage...

Baby is sick.Just a cold, but has a fever, so I am heading home with her to so she can rest and get better. Dr.'s Orders.

So, no more red carpet photos.

NYC All Star Parade...

Daddy! Look! It's Superman!

No sweetie, that's just an All Star.
You don't have to be a baseball fan to love a good parade. But you do have to be awake. Everybody else seems excited!

I'm sure there are folks who take the bus who are less than thrilled.

But, where else can you see the whole street covered with red carpet? The Emmy's? No!

ONLY in New York City!

ROAD TRIP ! VT for the 4th....Q3 MMP

My wife and I are up in VT for the 4th on our Q3 Marriage Maintainance Plan. Four times a year, we make it a point to get out of town and just enjoy each other. Nice just to get out of the everyday grind and celebrate why we love each other. This time, we have the baby with us.

We are up at our favorite place, The Snow Goose Inn, in the Mount Snow Region of Vermont and we are exploring route 7a and route 100. One thing is for sure, the most popular cars in VT are Saabs and Subarus. Almost every vehicle that was not a pickup truck or Harley was a Saab or Subaru. Although you can find classics, like this Dodge Challenger enjoying the curves of Mount Equinox.
UPDATE: 778 miles in 4 days from NY to Boston, through NH, Vermont and Western Mass...our 03 Saab 9-3 got 32 miles per gallon. I am not exactly easy on the throttle either. Gas in VT was $3.99 for regular. $4.49 for regular on 95 in Southern CT.

Moo !
Cows are very friendly. They have no problem coming right up to you and saying hello over the fence. Of course, they don't know about the awesome burger I had at Jerry's Deck in Wilmington!

Baby likes horses. can NOT have a pony!
