This is one of those images I just saw in my head the second we passed though this hall on our way to the reception. The wedding was in a beautiful hacienda outside Mexico City so as you can imagine there were lots of locations to choose from. This hall was used as the kitchen entrance so there was a lot of movement and a couple tables and chairs just thrown there but the lighting just popped when I saw it. I was lucky to convince the couple to let me work on this last shot which wasn't easy since we where already running late. But 5 minutes later we came up with this image which ended decorating there new living room in a massive 3-4 feet long print.

This couple surprised me with their pre-wedding session. We scheduled to meet at a lake/park in MN and when I arrived, they said we were getting on their boat. They showed me a handful of photos that they wanted to achieve from an iPhone. Normally I would have 5,000 + feet of land to work with to deliver a gallery of engagement photos, and now, I had a 20-foot wakeboarding boat to work from. I had to throw out my playbook for a pre-wedding shoot and stretch myself with something new. The couple even asked me to wakeboard at the end of the shoot. So, I threw on a life vest and jumped in.
This image was shot while doing an engagement session for Deepak and Harshali. We were strolling through the woods around the dusk and I found smoke coming out of somewhere forming an interesting medium of light and giving a feel of fog. I quickly captured this moment with this beautiful couple and I am so grateful that this image found its place in Wedaward! Thank you Wedaward!
I had fallen in love with this waterfall fall feature at a resort here in The Bahamas for quite some time and was waiting for the ideal opportunity to make this photo. When Norrie & Rasheeda were returning to the hotel for their wedding reception, I asked them to trust me and go with the flow. What you don't see are the taxis and cars swerving around us as we stood where the cars arrive at the resort. But an extra unexpected bonus where the shadows of the palms trees framing them as we were shooting in the hot midday sun!
