CD Cover Shoot

This afternoon and early evening, I photographed my soon-to-be father in-law, Jim Paradis.  I wanted to try out some new lighting techniques and he needed an image for his album cover.  I was so fortunate not only to have beautiful light, and a fun subject, but I also had the best assistant I could ask for... Christy!  She helped a ton except for the time she wasn't needed and decided to peg me with acorns while I photographed her father.

 Christy was holding a large gold reflector (camera left)... this helped to reflect golden light into this shady spot, and having Christy standing there helped to get some natural smiles from Jim.  If I ever needed a smile from him I would just say, "look at Christy"

 Here is a fine art image mixed in.  I'll have to make a print for the nice woman that let us use her incredible barn for some photographs. 

 Christy was throwing acorns at me during this shot.  Anyone want to guess where this is?... I'll give you a hint.... People are dying to get in here.

 having fun on the long walk out to grass island.

 For these last two shots Christy held an off camera flash fired through a shoot through umbrella, triggered using the new Pocket Wizard wireless transmitters.

Any votes for the album cover shot?

Nancy and Mike Sneek Peak

On September 4th, I photographed Nancy and Mike's beautiful Wedding.  The Ceremony was at the North Madison Congregational Church and the Reception was at their lake front house.  Nancy and Mike did it right!  Their day was intimate, filled with love, and most of all fun.  Here are a few preview images to check out while I'm working on the rest.  There will be a wedding website and slide show posted soon.

Mario and Nikki Wedding Sneak Peek

Last weekend I photographed the wedding of my cousin Mario and Nicole!  There was a lot of concern about Hurricane Earl during the week leading up to their big day.  After a few prayers from Italian mothers, Earl decided that these we not the ladies he wanted to mess with.  We were able to take pictures outdoors and the ceremony and reception were amazing!  Congrats Mario and Nikki!  I can't wait to show the rest of the images.  I'll have a website and slideshow up in a few weeks.
