New York Engagement Photography { Rosie and Eric }

It’s been a while since I’ve put an engagement shoot up on the blog.  This one was from a while ago.  This cute couple is rosie and eric, and they were a blast to shoot.  They were just to embark on some major life changes too.  Rosie wanted to be a vet… but here’s the kicker she wanted to go to school out in scottland!  Pretty cool huh?  Yeah so these guys decided to get married in czech republic before they moved all the way out there.

They were a total blast to hang out with, Eric who’s a local barber had some really fun stories to tell about all his interesting clients.  And we just so happened to have perfect light for this day.  And I was able to capture some great images for these guys.  It’s fun when

Engagement Photographer in New Yorkl Portfolio Session with Kristiana

Man it’s been a wild ride lately.  I’ve been shooting nearly every weekend.  Having a blast in my studio.  It’s awesome, I can’t tell you how much fun it is to just be able to work on my photography.  Not to mention I’ve had the opportunity to work with some amazing models lately.  This here is Kristiana, and she was just a blast to work with.  Came with a ton of ideas, great person.  It’s so much easier to shoot fashion when you’re working with people who you actually enjoy being around.  I hate boring people.  I also don’t like feeling like I have to be a dancing bear to keep people entertained.  It’s just too much work to shoot and dance.  Seriously. Too. much. work.

New York Portrait Photographer { Brandi Senior Shots }

I took a nice little hiatus this summer with my wedding, my honeymoon and all sorts of other wild and crazy things that were going on this summer.  I did however get the chance to do some senior portraits for my new cousin in law, who by the way, is a total doll.  I don’t really do a ton of senior portraits, but of course I love portrait work.  I also got a chance to learn a ton about my new cousin in law.  She’s interested in acting, and she really wants to go out to NYU for college.

As it’s not really my style I decided not to do any of the shots where she leaned her head on a fake tree.  I tried to do my best to take her senior shots in a more fashion, and edgy direction.

Engagement Photographer in New York { Kelly and Ben }

Who’s wicked behind on posts and has 2 thumbs…. this guy.  I’m super sorry for anyone who tries to keep up with my blog on a regular basis, it’s just been so busy lately.  I’m getting ready for my own wedding if you didn’t know.  Which is a whole stressful world on it’s own, and I’m trying to stay on top of my photography.  Oh and I guess keep my day job.  Juggling these 3 things has become a bit overwhelming, and if something’s going to suffer it’s going to be my blog.  Because while it might help me bring more clients in, I’m sure my clients would rather me spend time working on their CD’s than write a post about their shoot.  So this post is going to be quick.


New York Photographers { Rosie + Erik }

Well it’s certainly be a while.  I’ve been so busy between all my different shoots.  As all my engagement couples know though…. engagements are by far my favorite.  I just love portraits so much.  The interaction between the two people about to get married are always so interesting to me.  This couple was no different.  Everyone say high to Rosie and Erik.  These guys were great.  Erik is a barber downtown and Rosie is currently a vet tech.  Here pretty soon though they are going on a hell of a trip.  They are going to move over to Scotland.  Rosie got into some killer vet school in Scotland so they are going to move all the way across the Atlantic.  That s

Well it’s been a little bit since I’ve done a writeup for an engagement shoot.  I’ve just been so busy with work, and other stuff.  If you hadn’t noticed I’ve been trying to do a bit of food photography.  I think there is one other couple that I never did a blog writeup for,… I should really get on that.  Everyone say hey to Melanie and Josh.  I’m so happy I got a chance to work with this couple.  Man were they fun.  I had such a blast working

New York Photographer { Urban Decay }

First off if you’re looking for a New York Photographer feel free to check out my main website.

It’s certainly rare that I do a series.  I find when I go out shooting that most of the time I end up with one or two photographs that I really like and everything else is just not up to par.  So I went out recently with a theme in mind, and I wanted to try and put together a whole series of shots.  And look at my film on a whole, and come up with a much larger set of shots.

I had been doing a bit of location scouting and driving around a bunch of really weird locations to try and find something along the lines of urban decay.

New York Photographer { Artsy Stuff }

I took this shot while I was doing my wedding shoot with Dave and Julia.  I was actually just trying to figure out what kind of lighting I wanted to use for the couple walking down this alleyway into their reception.  As you can see this is not the exposure I ended up with because it would have been overly dark.  But just as I was playing with exposure and figuring all this stuff out, and this waitress walked passed me.

I knew I had an opportunity to get a really cool photograph of this girl completely back lit and kind of ethereal.  Problem was I was going to have to time it just right.  This is where practicing street photography reall

Engagement Photographer New York { Candice and Grafton }

Well it certainly has been a while since I’ve posted.  I’ve been really busy with other little projects, and I’ve been in my own little bubble coming up for air here and there for some engagement photography shoots.  Everyone say Hi to Candice and Grafton.  This cute couple is from the wonderful state of Texas.  They are a great pair together.  Plenty of laughs, loving life, and each

New York Photographer { New Photoshop Mixer Brushes }

So I recently bought one of those Wacom pen tablets.  I really wish I would have done it sooner.  It has been so much fun playing with this thing!  I love how I can make really awesome looking brush strokes on a digital canvas.  It’s totally wild.  Now I do have the advantage of using photoshop CS5’s new Mixer brushes, and I have to say I’m totally amazed by how great they look.  Honestly it’s like painting with a real brush in your hand.  It does take a little getting use to with the whole hand eye coordination of making strokes on something below the screen while watching it happen on your monitor.  Sadly I’ve been too busy playing with digital painting to try my hand at some really
