if i’m being honest with myself, this wedding had to be one of the most difficult weddings for me to photograph, ever. not because weather or malfunctioning equipment. not because of difficult clients or poor planning. It was difficult because it was my sisters wedding. my one and only sibling. for anyone who’s watched their loved ones get married, they’re well aware of the emotional roller coaster that ensues. excitement, fear, happiness, stress, anxiety, etc. All of these feelings are pretty comparable to what a wedding photographer experiences when they arrive to photograph your wedding. they want to give you the best work. now mix all those together and you have me on my sisters wedding day. top it off with the added stresses of trying to shoot and converse with my family and it’s a rather exhausting day. alas, we did it. it went off beautifully. congratulations kaitlin and eric. I love you both and I’m so happy for you two to start your lives together. your brother,
awesome senior portrait session last week with the lovely micah. whole session up this week!
as some of you know, i do a lot of work with the special needs community, regularly working with a handful of high school students during the school year. my main man shane has shown a real interest in photography since the day i met him. his excitement upon seeing even a single piece of my gear is overwhelming. this summer i’ve been tagging along with him to a wonderful camp called camp far-out, run by the non-profit, far conservatory. far uses various methods of creative therapy in order to help the special needs community. art, music, dance, yoga, you name it, they offer it. this year far teamed up with the organization, compassion though cameras. they travel the world, giving kids less fortunate the opportunity to get behind a camera and create some photographs. shane was a shoe in from the start and i accompanied him on a photo adventure with the organization. i brought along a camera of my own and snapped some shots of the kids working, as well as the following class where they took their printed images and created their own personalized photo-album.
