Congratulations Arielle & Fellipe

This time of year, things are so busy it is difficult for me to keep up with the blog. I have so much material and no time to share it. Well, I am squeezing a post in today. Hopefully, it won’t be too long before the next one.

These images are from an awesome wedding for an awesome couple. I’ll let the pictures tell the story.

Congratulations to Arielle & Fellipe!

Salute to the Bulldogs

As we prepare for our last game of the season and the playoffs to follow, I wanted to share just a few of the thousands of images I captured from this perfect season.

Over the past couple of years, I watched these kids learn a lot about themselves. Last year was a lesson in losing, while keeping your head up and never give up. This year we kept that same attitude which so far has led us to an undefeated season. All the while, exercising great sportsmanship as they all know what it is like to be on the losing side of an important game.

When they would notice the opposing team were bigger in size, they knew they needed to play stronger and faster. They never gave up and this perseverance has helped them grow as a team and as individuals. These victories are a result of every single player learning their responsibilities and doing their job every day.

Thanks to everyone that takes the time to volunteer as a coach. The education does not stop when school is out. Some of life’s important lessons are learned on the field.

I am so proud of this team!

Image of the Week | Spring Fever

We have certainly had our share of snow here in NY. This winter seems to be never ending. With yet another snow storm in the near future, It makes the thought of spring seem even sweeter when it finally gets here. Here comes the sun!

Image of the Week | Portrait Improvisation

Although it was late December, we were actually blessed with some really nice weather and were able to shoot a fair amount of pictures outside. This particular shot was taken just as the sun was going down and was beginning to chill up quite a bit. At this point, we had taken most of the pictures from the day outside, including at the beach.

As the sun was going down, it was getting cold quick. We went down by the golf course for one last portrait, because we had shot everywhere else but there. As we were walking down the cart path, I noticed the groom was holding the brides bouquet and he heard me snap a few shots. As you can see, both the bride and groom had some fun with it and I think I may like this picture even better than the portrait we walked down there to take.

Image of the Week | NYC Engagement (contn’d)

This week’s images are from the same shoot as the silhouette images from last week. As I mentioned, we shot 95% of the images from the rooftop terrace of this apartment building, which had some incredible views. I wanted to incorporate some significant NYC views into the shoot as best I could. I even shot them while we took a break to warm up a bit.

Image of the Week | NYC Silhouette

On one of the coldest days of the year, we decided to head out to the rooftop terrace of an NYC penthouse apartment. We were looking for some nice skyline views and hopefully a nice sunset. For this weeks image, I chose to show some basic concepts I like to use during any sunset shoot and that is to include at least one silhouette. The main challenge is to include some some of the surrounding environment so it does not look like a plain silhouette image with nothing but empty space in the background. Body language is a pretty key factor here as well.

We shot 95% of this engagement shoot on this terrace, starting about an hour and a half before sunset. It was freezing cold and we needed to keep taking breaks to go inside and warm up. It was worth it as both the terrace and view were awesome.

More pictures to come. Happy New Year!
