Scenes from New York City - February 17-20

During the winter months I spend most of my time collaborating with other photographers, honing my craft, and meeting with new clients for consultations. Over the past few days, much of this work has been taking place in New York City. Every time I have a meeting in the city, I try to do some shooting while I’m there. A week ago, there was snow. Then, this weekend the skies cleared and I found myself looking up much of the time and shooting architectural images.

Often, when I’m toting my camera around with a load of other things, I choose just one lens for the entire day. It’s as much of a personal challenge to shoot at only one focal length as it is simply for practicality. Depending on the day, these photos were shot with either of my little Canon 50mm f1.4 or 28mm f1.8 lenses. Both are great small lenses for fun stuff like this!

More wedding albums delivered - in time for Thanksgiving!

Before I head out on a trip to visit my family in Michigan for Thanksgiving, I just thought this album deserved a quick post. I delivered Yaeko and Eric’s album today and I LOVE it. This is such a beautiful example of simple, classic design to highlight the images and truly make a timeless keepsake. I love that they took me up on the suggestion of a silk cover with a suede leather wraparound. Because my albums are completely custom, I’m able to work with my clients to truly make their album one-of-a-kind. I encourage all of my couples to think beyond the black leather cover and create something unique!

Here’s what my custom album packaging looks like. Albums come wrapped in this gorgeous paper with an amazing leaf embellishment:

And before it’s unwrapped, here’s a detail of this 30-page 10×10 album’s pages:

THIS is the amazing cover, folks. Delicate silk design and suede wraparound. I’m in love:

And, of course, a shot of one of my favorite spreads from the ceremony:

Now, I’m off to order another copy of this album as a sample for myself!
