Washington DC Wedding

Say hello to Blaine (I know!) and Michelle. They have both served in the United States military and she is on active duty, as were many of their wedding guests. They made us feel proud of where we come from, and I’m so glad we got to skip across the pond and shoot their incredible wedding. On a personal note, this trip to DC was deeply moving to both Keith and myself, as we had just started to feel the pangs of homesickness in foggy London. The second we stepped off the plane into our homeland, we just knew we needed a burrito. Thanks, Blaine and Michelle, for the opportunity to shoot your wedding, and all the joy that came from your big day.

If you end up on the floor, it’s been a good party.

This collection focused on a few things that other photographers normally wouldn’t focus on, and I think that’s what’s keen and creative about the album in its entirety. The attention given to the couple’s shoes, the bride’s skirt, and the DOF concentrating on the fountain with people faded in the background —Very nice. Cheers!

Beautiful photographs! Nice work!

Autumn in Hyde Park

Question. What do you get when you cross a two-year-old who knows how to pose for the camera with Hyde Park in Autumn? The perfect family shoot, that’s what.

He is too much! 
Slow pokes…

Paris

Oopsies, it’s been a while since we blogged some pictures. Let’s fix that, shall we?

For our 4th anniversary, we took a train to Paris. I actually made a solid effort not to trap myself behind my camera the entire time, so perhaps these photos are a somewhat different view of Paris. We only photographed what we thought was worth it, the rest we’ll save for postcards. Although, I wish I had photographed the food. Because it. was, amazing. and now I really miss it.

I did not name my bike Chanel, she was already named as if she was always meant to be mine.
For our anniversary, we had dinner and watched the sun set from the rooftop at the Pompidou.
On Gargoyles: Do you think there was some kind of architect get-together where someone said, “Hey guys, we should add sort of gutter to our buildings to divert the rainwater.” And then some other guy said, “Yeah! And and lets also make them scary as hell.”
We kept finding ourselves back at the garden in front of the Louvre. It was such a nice place to just sit and read, so we ended up spending a lot of time there.

 

 

Ladies and gentlemen, The Mona Lisa.

 

 

Versailles was OVER THE TOP.

Arc De Triomphe
Is there anything more romantic than Paris in black and white?

There’s a lot of point of view shots from below, drawing attention to the grandeur of Parisian structures. I love what you did with the aperture and shutter speed settings to achieve such kind of detail with the close-up shots.

Love them so much! So even though you limited yourselves…how many did you take? My favorites? The first one on the bike and the one with you Megan, with the Black Rapid strap over your shoulder-not sure where you are. Next time we visit we’ll be twins with our camera straps…but your camera stuff will be much nicer! Love ya!

Love, love, love! I might need a print of the vertacal Sunset with Sacre Coeur in the background. That’s my favorite place in Paris. It looks like you had a wonderful & romantic trip.

Welcome to London!

This is our very first family photo shoot across the pond, in Surrey, UK. These are my (Megan’s) cousins, and we went out for a delightful morning walk to the park for some pictures. The lighting in this country? A photographer’s dream.

Love these pics Megan! So beautiful & natural.

That last one is my favorite! I tells a story. I like that.

Something wicked this way comes…

We’ve been off gallivanting around for a while, and so it’s probably time for a quick blog update, yes? I have some adorable cuteness, some beautiful family shots, and one of the most touching weddings we’ve ever shot in my backlog. But instead, I’m going to post these super weird situation I stumbled upon in downtown LA yesterday on my way home. The guy in the hat was painting the guy in the sequins.

Hmm. You probably don’t hear that sentence every day.
