WPJA contest

Thursday, October 29th, 2009

This was a very funny photo from a Chinese wedding that placed eighth in the 2009 BRIDES Magazine and WPJA (Wedding Photojournalism Association) Photo Contest in the customs/culture category. The groom and his groomsmen had to put on underwear outside their pants and dance and sing for the bride. I’ve always enjoyed the photos that come out of the games that are played when the groom and his entourage make their way to meet the bride and her bridesmaids.

David Griffin on photography

Wednesday, October 21st, 2009

National Geographic has always set the standard for the highest quality photography and storytelling. In an era were the printed image has taken a backseat to the web it’s still a treat to behold those beautifully printed images in a copy of the magazine to truly appreciate great photography.

I discovered this video of a talk by David Griffin, the Director of Photography for National Geographic,  on another photographer’s blog and thought it was worth sharing.

Marcella and Brendan, Photo Shoot Around New York

Monday, October 12th, 2009

Marcella and Brendan are from Hong Kong and will be getting married there next July. Since Brendan is studying at Columbia Business School they thought it would be fun to do their wedding portraits around New York City. I photographed their friends’ wedding last spring and Michelle had put Marcella in touch with me. I’m not sure they had any idea what they were getting in for….I think they now can appreciate the work that models do each day.  It was a long but fun day and we managed to get great shots in a variety of locations including Bow Bridge in Central Park and Fifth Avenue. The highlight of Marcella’s day may have been the burger at at the Central Park Boathouse though!

Ceremony & Reception: Ritz Carlton, Battery Park, New York

Michelle and Vineet didn’t let gray skies and rain get in the way of a fun-filled wedding. While I was photographing another wedding at a vineyard on Long Island my associate photographers spent the day with  them.
