Wedding Spot in Paradise

Today’s image is from the beautiful Sheraton Keauhou Bay Resort on the Big Island of Hawaii.  Jon and I had rented a boat for the day to look for large marine mammals so that Jon could shoot them with his underwater camera rig.  It seemed like a good idea for the first hour of the […]

Lady in Waiting

If I’ve ever seen a bridesmaid that was a natural model – this is her.  I haven’t got a clue what her name is – but she was a junior bridesmaid at a wedding I shot this summer.  It was a terrible rainy day – we were stuck inside the theater where the wedding was […]

Watercolor Wedding

Today’s shot is admittedly a little different.  This was a title screen for a wedding video that I shot at my friend JP’s wedding a few years ago.  I always thought it looked really cool – and when I stumbled across it today, I thought it would be a fun change of pace for my […]

Swept Away

I’m really jealous of the SoCal wedding photographers – anywhere you point the camera is a good background.  Still – the focus of the picture in any wedding is the bride and groom.  Mostly the bride.  It’s pretty hard to take a bad picture of Dano and Jacqie too – and this is another of […]

Reflections on a Happy Engagement

The Minnesota Landscape Arboretum is pretty much Minnesota’s largest photo set.  There are so many fantastic locations here to shoot portraits you almost can’t go wrong.  The landscape shooting isn’t bad either!  This shot worked a lot better in black and white – mostly because the heavy shade with direct sun overhead gave everything a […]

Pretty Maids All In A Row

Photo tip of the day – try to get group shots where people are all on a different level.  Triangle patterns are very dynamic – so are circles.  Whatever the case, try to avoid the ‘lets all stand in a row’ formation. This is Whitney (the bride) and her beautiful bridesmaids at her wedding last […]

At Last

If having it rain on your wedding day brings you luck – Whitney and Jim will be very lucky indeed!  This was a doozy of a shot to try to get – since doing a ‘trash the dress’ shoot prior to the service is bad form.  I also didn’t want to figure out just what […]


I had the privilege of shooting the wedding of Whitney and Jim last weekend in Northfield.  This is Whitney – the beautiful bride.  It was a ton of fun to shoot – Whitney and Jim were great sports and their bridal party were a lot of fun.  This picture was taken in front of some […]

Walking into the Sunset

This shot was taken at a wedding I shot in La Jolla, CA last fall.  I picked this shot today for three reasons: I was back in La Jolla today I went to see David Ziser talk about portrait/wedding photography today I LOVE the shot This shot was taken with a super-wide zoom as I […]

Getting Tuned

This is a shot of a San Diego musician getting ready to play at my sister’s wedding.  It was an outrageously difficult place to shoot – heavy shade with bright sunbeams coming through and a light background.  It took a lot of playing with the flash to get the exposure balanced a little better! Vital […]
