jessica + emilio : 2009.5.15

This is a quote from the email I just received from Jessica.
“you are insanely talented. Thank you for a beautiful experience, our day felt effortless but your work shows all your labor…
…Thank You”
It was effortless, we had the best day of the weekend they were so easy to work with.
For this post I will let the pictures speak for themselves.
But, I will say this, The Pleasantdale Chateau is a photographers dream, mix that with a bride and groom like Jessica and Emilio and the photos create themselves!

Enjoy.
edited to add – the music for the slide show was Jessica’s suggestion and its perfect. I cant believe I didn’t think of ever using David Grey!!
…this is always an option for you upcoming brides. If you have music you would like me to use don’t be shy.

Check it out.

I happened to stop by my friend Dave’s [moving pictures] office yesterday and got a sneak peak at a video he was finishing. We shot this wedding together in a torrential downpour. This house was extremely challenging because of the lack of daylight. Dave has this amazing soft box (that you can see in one of the clips) that really brought this gloomy morning back to life.
Oh and the fact that Christina is insanely hot helped!!


He posted it to his website, but I swiped the code so I could have it on mine.
Enjoy this, its a true testament to how well we work together.



Here is the slide show recap I showed at there wedding in August 2008.

Catherine you truly are an amazing parent. Gretchen and Stella are so lucky to have you as a role model.
The love and care you give them goes unmatched. You’re a wonderful mother you should be proud.

Marchese girls for momma’s day (shhh)

I had the pleasure of photographing the Marchese girls yesterday for a mothers day present. You may recognize Maria from a few posts ago, I shot her engagement session in the city.
This was a tricky shoot one of the sisters was in the city and could not get up to Rye before 7, oh boy, the light was fading fast!! Luckily I had my bag of tricks. I was able to light them and still capture the blue dusk sky. If you have ever tried this, its not such an easy thing to do!
Here are a few of my favorites!
