This wedding was stunning from start to finish! I was actually the second shooter at this wedding, but I got such key shots for them that I could not resist sharing some of these.
Their portrait session was one I remember the most from that year. Every photo we took was beautiful and I had a really hard time picking which image I wanted to submit! So glad I chose this one! You could hear the love that these two have for each other, yet alone see it.
This was one of those sessions whereas a photographer from the North East you only dream about photographing. This was sunrise at the Bonneville Salt Flats that was taken in March 2021 when a few friends and I went on a 2 week trip across the western United States.
It was about 29º outside when we shot this. With the clean horizon line and the sun rising above it, I knew I wanted some sort of walking shot along that plane. I told Andrea & Jacob to walk parallel to me and at a slow pace. I popped a 35mm on it and took my shot! This was by far my favorite image from this portion of the session!
This was shot at a barn in a town close to where I live. I saw the way the light was hitting them through the doorway. I stopped everyone and said, hold. Please, I snapped a few, waited for my video team to get that shot, and we moved on. When we were walking to the next location, I scrolled through the images from that spot, and my videographer said to me, "this will win an award one day." This wedding in all was beautiful, and I had so many images it was hard to choose, but I am honored to have been chosen to win this prestigious award!
We traveled out to Pennslyvania to a secluded park where the river is a mile from the parking lot. One of Maddie and Scott's requests was to do a part of their session in the river. There was so many photo opportunities to shoot while we were there, it was hard to decide.
I saw this fallen log and knew immediately how I wanted to position them to create this beautiful perspective shot. After viewing their gallery entirely, this stood out as the money shot from the session and I immediately wanted to submit it!
I am super excited that this photo was chosen for an award and honored to be a part of this amazing community.
Michael and Megan's Wedding was an exceptional one! This shot was something I envisioned but never had the opportunity to capture. This was a wedding I photographed back in the Summer of 2019. I was trying to find that WOW photo and only after re-editing it did I realize how much of a WOW photo this actually was. I'd say this was a money shot for sure.
Joel and Lillie had their engagement session on the beach in New Jersey, and from start to finish, their session was terrific. This photo, in particular, was chosen because I felt like they were up in the clouds, and it gave off a very dream-like feel. It was tough to choose the right photo from this session to submit, and I am so honored to have been selected to win this award!
For Vanessa and Alex's wedding, I saw this window light coming through the ballroom and I knew that I had the right angle of light to create this awesome window effect on their bodies and the lighting was going to hit them correctly.
Their portrait session was beautiful and I am super stoked about this image!!
Nick and Jessica's Wedding had to be one of my favorites from that year. Veil shots always seem to be some of my best work. My second shooter had been waving the veil up and down with opposite hands and on one click, this was the best and most epic veil shot I've ever taken. This wedding was in the early summer of 2019.
I am a sucker for a good silhouette and sick reflections. This was taken at Papago Park in Phoenix Arizona in March 2021. The sun was setting behind the rocks and I could see how the trees were darkened by the light behind them. This was a good 3-minute walk from where we were but I knew that I wanted to get this shot before the sun went down too far.
I wanted to make it look like it was one continuous shot from top to bottom. Getting the trees to line up perfectly in the mirror definitely presented some challenges. I am super stoked that this shot worked out as well as it did! One of my favorite photos of this trip.
