I was contacted about a month ago about Zayna and Rani’s fabulous wedding images that were already featured in Metro Detroit Bride to be featured in a magazine based out of Beirut called Sayidaty. It is a women’s magazine with heavy readership in that area including fashion and tech savy places such as Dubai. The article turned out to be an interview about wedding photographers and what brides should look for on their photography and more important photographer, which of course I thought was great. I mentioned a few of my friends and and fellow photographers in the article. Jasmine Star, Kenny Kim, Millie Holloman, Ben Harrison, Nicole Ladonne, and Jackie Blair are all awesome people and give me great inspiration as well as add so much to our amazing industry. The interview is a 4-page spread with images and I am quite happy and suprised how everything turned out. Also, the most current issue of my favorite photography magazine Rangefinder has a few images that I took in Las Vegas while helping my awesome buddy, Kenny Kim, covering WPPI. Thanks to everyone who made this possible…I love my job!
I have enjoyed Express’ clothes for some time, but I felt a need to share the shirts I wear and adore from them. They are the 1MX line of dress shirts, but specifically the Fitted version…not the Modern Fit version. See, I have a big neck (although it has gotten smaller as I have lost a little bit of weight) but I’m not a big guy, so usually if I buy a shirt to fit my neck so I can wear a tie and what not, the shirt has about 4.7469 yards of fabric too much in the stomach area…in other words, TOO BIG. The Fitted cut of the 1MX is perfect, it comes in a lot more on the sides and the waist…just how I like it. I really helps to clean up the look and looks WAY better. Also, since my neck is smaller now (16 1/2 in) the shirts I buy fit me all around now….WOO HOO! Sorry if this was a bit random, but I just had to share my love for the Fitted 1MX. Express rocks!
I’m in Chicago right now and just finished photographing a great wedding with a new friend Sainath Kamath. I’ll be blogging the images in a couple weeks, but I wanted to show you all one that doesn’t really show you much, but I still love the image. I am so glad I was able to come along and help out my new friend Sainath and also be part of Kavita and Manas’s day. I’ve had a great trip and am super excited about this wedding season!
It is fitting that since Emily and Jon are my first wedding of the season, that they also be my first engagement session as well. We met up in Kerrytown downtown Ann Arbor and hung out and grabbed some great shots in that area. I hadn’t seen Emily or Jon since Jessica + Chris’ wedding last year, so it was great to see them and hang out a bit and get to know them better. We had lovely weather and after a few ‘warm up’ minutes, Emily and Jon got comfortable and we had a fun time shooting. We made our way into the famous Zingerman’s and tried quite a few yummy cheeses and I think we were all tempted to take some home with us. After shooting, we vetured downtown to one of my fav places to eat, The Blue Tractor and Emily and I got their ever-so-good Mac and Cheese…mmm. What a great way to start out the season and I’m really looking forward to seeing Emily and Jon on their wedding day along with many other familiar faces. Enjoy your pics you two!
Zingerman’s…SO good. Love…even better
I love a good piece of cheese…
Emily is definitely my kind of bride with those heels.
I wish spring lasted longer, I say the same about fall though…silly transitional seasons.
Love the green dress too.
Follow the red brick road.
I heart moments like these
They will make a fine husband and wife…
Stairs can be fun.
“No Dustin’s were harmed in the making of this image.”
I love this color…
Is this their secret hidding place?
