Wedding Photography

Wedding Ceremony and Reception: Crabtree’s Kittle House, Chappaqua, NY

Hair and Make-Up: Static, White Plains, NY

Assistant Photographer: AnyaFoto, New Milford, NJ

Being asked to shoot a wedding for anybody is always an honour; being asked to shoot the wedding of another wedding photographer is a nerve-wracking honour! And so it was with a mixture of excitement and trepidation that I accepted my friend Peter Forman‘s request to photograph his wedding for him and his fiancée, Jess.

We’d only really met briefly last year at Cliff Mautner’s Lighting and Skillset Bootcamp in Philly, and so I was very surprised and flattered when Peter called me back in February to ask me about my availability.

I was doubly pleased to be assisted on the big day by another workshop buddy, the extremely talented Anya Roudenko of AnyaFoto. It was great catching up, seeing her in action and experimenting a little bit. She has a very different style to mine, but one I admire very much indeed.

The wedding day itself was very British with its grey and rainy weather, but that didn’t dampen the fantastic mood of the bride and groom and their friends and family. In fact, it was one of the most fun weddings I have had the pleasure of covering. Things definitely got interesting on the dance floor as the night progressed!

Here are just a few of my personal faves from the day:

Rehearsal Dinner: The Queen City Club, Cincinnati, OH Wedding Ceremony: St. Ursula Academy, Cincinnati, OH Reception: The Green Residence, Anderson Township, OH The weekend before we upped sticks to move to North Carolina, I had the honour of documenting Cathy and Jimmy's wedding for them.

Coverage started at the Queen City Club in downtown Cincinnati and continued the next morning as the girls got ready for the day ahead at Valenti salon. From there we headed back to the Green residence in Anderson Township, which was also the venue for the evening reception. Cat ...

This week's image is a bit different to the norm as, instead of at a wedding, it was taken at Cliff Mautner's Lighting and Skillset Bootcamp, which I had the pleasure of attending this week. I have always admired Cliff's use of light and been impressed with his communication skills and down-to-earth approach to teaching. For those of you that don't know him, Cliff was voted one of the top 10 wedding photographers in the world by American Photo magazine and is a Nikon spokesperson and multi-award-winning all-round amazing guy. Bottom line, someone I was really looking forward to meeting and learning from. As you can probably tell, I place a ...

raleigh wedding portrait session – michelle & clay
A couple of weeks back, I headed down to Hope Mills, just outside Fayetteville, to spend a few hours around sunset in the company of Michelle and Clay. Rather than going with traditional wedding photography for their day, they wanted to just take some portraits ahead of time, which sounded like a fun idea to me. So with a couple of cameras, a fab location and a whole lot of juicy golden hour light, we sallied forth and went for a stroll with the sole purpose of having some fun and seeing what we came up with. Here are just a few of my fave frames from their sesh. Cheers, guys! ...
