SENIOR PICTURES: LUISA

I was thrilled (still am) to make senior portraits for Luisa. She’s everything I could ask for in a subject, comfortable in front of the camera, eager to make beautiful things, and stunningly pretty herself. A real pleasure to work with.

We shot between two locations in Litchfield, Topsmead and the stable where Luisa’s horse and pony are kept. I have to admit, I love horses. After I make my millions, I’m going to purchase and expansive meadow, string up some bad guy cut outs all over, then ride around slashing them with a large steed, chain mail, and swords. Yeah.

Here are my favorite photos from her shoot. I love love love them. Hope you do as well.

WEDDING VIDEO: JESSICA & JOSHUA

I had the pleasure of documenting the wedding of the young, bubbly, and gracious, Jessica and Joshua. The wedding was fairly traditional with a heartwarming full ceremony at St. Mary’s Church in Bethel, CT and a reception at the Bride’s house. Props go out to the friends and family who made it such a special day–specifically with the decoration of Joshua’s Jeep. It was fun and celebration all around.

Enjoy.

NY POST FREELANCER HARASSED

In the tragic story of Ki Suk Han being struck by a subway train is taking a turn for the (even) worse as a sort of blame falls upon the photographer who got a shot of the event. The focus, anger, and confusion have been taken from the killer and put on photographer Mr. Abbasi, a New York Post photographer. Countless stories are being published with headlines like, “Could the Photographer Have Saved Han?”, “Man is Stranded on Subway Tracks for 90 Seconds While Photographer Takes Pictures”, and my personal favorite, “What Would You Have Done?”

When Abbasi appears on the Today’s show (watch) he is told that 80% of the polled public believes he should have done more. There is an important distinction between the opinions from the general public and the opinions from other photojournalists as it relates to this situation.
