Let me share two of my photographing experience:
I was recently contacted by a couple who wanted to have some engagement photos taken in a
40's theme. I don't know why, but when I think of the 40's I immediately thought of World War
II and railroad stations. The location that came to mind was Clara's Restaurant in Lansing, since
it is a converted Railroad station that really has a unique ambience.
The couple arrived in vintage clothing and did an excellent job of posing. I took the images,
added some grain, blur, some lens flare, and some crackle texture to make the photos look old. I'd
have to say that the photos turned out very well.
Then another experience came from a wedding. It was a sunday,one of the hottest days this
summer, and very busy for us. Not only did we photograph a beautiful couples wedding day, but
we also did a photo booth for them. We arrived at the time the bridal party arrived, and spent
the whole day documenting their special day. We took pictures of the bridal party preparation,
the wedding ceremony, and after ceremony formal shots, as well as the reception. During the
formal photo session my associate, Mary, set up a photo booth to take pictures of the guests
while they where waiting for the bride, groom and the wedding party to arrive at the reception.
Not only did Mary take the photos, but she also had the photos ready to be presented during
the reception in a slide show. The slide show was a big hit. Here are some samples of the photo
When photographing a wedding, I like to focus on some of the details that are easy to overlook.
At an upcoming wedding that I'm going to be photographing, the bride asked me to be sure to
take some photos of her shoes (she loves the shoes). Rather than taking the photos at the
wedding, I asked the bride to let me use the shoes in advance of the wedding. Taking the photos
in advance allowed me to take the "must have" photo in advance of all the activities of the
wedding day. I used some backgrounds that were really colorful and accentuate her shoes. It's
always important to pay attention to the details. I love the way the photos turned out.
