In the land of trees and more trees (also known as the Poconos) at the Inn at Pocono Manor, Beth and Matt exchanged vows and rings to seal the deal. After the ceremony, Steve from Mittman Entertainment got things going on the dance floor with some gettin’ down sounds. And JIHM Booth was there keepin all the laughs loud and fresh. See Beth and Matt’s JIHM Booth photos here. And last but not least, the photography obviously done by me, check it out below.

A real smile cannot be forced by a “1, 2, 3… Cheese!” or just anyone with a camera. Beyond that cheesey smile is as certain smile that we’re all looking to capture. It’s is a smile that shines through when you’re with the that one person who can make your face explode in a huge smile. I remember seeing those smiles about two years ago when I first photographed James and Sarah for their wedding. It’s really great to see that after two years those smiles have only gotten bigger.
The local crew of kids trying not to get hit with paint balls. Oh yeah, did I mention there was a serious game of paint ball going on around us? Well, thats not the only thing. There were guys on dirt bikes and quads too!
Yep, here they are again.
With out further delay I give you Nathan and Yuliya! This was a really fun shoot and I think that comes across in the love they share in these few photos. Take a minute to watch the second photo (an animation that was fun to watch unfold) it’ll warm your heart on these late fall days. I also have to say that I’m seeing a trend away from diamond engagement rings to all sorts of rings that are pretty awesome. I think Nathan and Yuliya have really nice taste with their selection. Ooooh LA LA!
I checked the forecast obsessively the week before Emma and Pauls wedding and you know what it said? RAIN RAIN RAIN THUNDER AND LIGHTNING! It appeared the end of the world was near! And you know what? I felt four drops while Emma was on her way down the aisle / field. Stupid weather people.
So, their amazingly beautiful wedding wasn’t postponed and it was gorgeous. It was like 90 degrees in the shade though. I’ve never sweated through clothing as bad as that day, but it was so worth it. Emma and Paul’s wedding was a blast and I want to thank them for inviting me to come and shoot their wedding. It was so much fun we’re going to do it all again next year! Just kidding. But you can relive the day below.
I want to give a big huge thank you to Adrian Sauers for helping me out. Adrian is a man of many talents and I can’t say enough great things about him. He’s first and foremost an outstanding artist and you should check out his work here. He also captured some amazing images too, like the grumpy little boy who didn’t want his photo taken.

David and Kristen’s wedding was a blast!!! And what make’s parties even more fun than people gettin’ hitched? I don’t know, Let me know think… hmmmm…. PHOTOBOOTHS!!!! Heck yeah, especially when you through a little competition in there. The two categories were Crazy and Lovely. The first is the Lovely winner. They put in some humor and some lovin’ and kept it lovely. The second one (obviously crazy) was a hard decision, but these guys pulled through with the win. So there you go. Winners, your next step is to contact me and we’ll set up your free session. Let’s do this thing! If I don’t hear from you with in a month, I will be forced to hunt you down and shoot pictures of you from a far, and send the photos to you in the mail to fulfill competition requirements. JUST KIDDING! Enjoy!
This next one was absolutely hilarious to watch as it unfolded. That’s Dave at the bottom in the last photo. Priceless. (By the way, the sign says “Raise your hand if you were scared of Dave.”)
It’s hard to feel like you’re working when you get to be in the photos. In addition to that, when have amazing bosses it makes work amazing! Thank you Dave and Kristen! Wedding photos to follow soon! (By the way, the sign says “We should be working. (IT)”.
Sign of the times. Never gets old until it’s old.
They should get a tatoo!
I was walking along and saw this tree covered in spectacular lights so I told Kristin to hop in there. I love this shot. I might add that it was like 0 degrees out with the wind chill when we went to see the lights at Longwood Gardens. We had such a fantastic time that we decided to become members! Yeeeeehaw! Still looking forward to summer. I hand held this shot. Can I just say how much I love the Canon 5D mk2? Well… I love it.
This past weekend, we took a two hour bus ride through the mountains to a beach town called Mollendo. The road to Mollendo has what seemed to be about 70 switch backs and shear drop offs that left you feeling really queasy. If you allowed your mind to wander, you could easily imagine the bus at the bottom of the cliff engulfed in flames… so I read a book.
Once in Mollendo, we checked in to our hotel called “America,” owned and operated by one of the most pleasant people named Americo Chang. It was only 36 US dollars for two nights, and we had the best view with three walls of windows over looking the town. After unpacking, we relaxed on the beach and ate at a restaurant called Maro Antonio, which Brad found in his Peru travel book by the Lonely Planet book company. We ordered an assortment of food and beverages, but the one thing we ordered that stood out was the Ceviche, which consists of raw fish cooked in the acid of lime juice and covered in some pico de gallo. After dinner, we headed out to the beach again to watch the sunset over the Pacific ocean (which never happens on the east coast since the sun rises over the Atlantic.) Even though it was a beautiful sight with the red sky and the rocky cliffs there just just below us, where we watch the sun set, there happens to be a sewer pipe emptying into the ocean. Oh well, it’s a good thing you can’t smell the photos.
The weekend was a blast. We ordered some really good ice cream from another spot listed in the Lonely Planet bookand played some frisbee in an empty square all by ourselves when some shady guy walked up and rustled around in the bushes, and then, after checking a few bushes, he just left. When we were leaving the square, Axshel (our Peruvian friend) checked the bushes and found a wallet. It turns out the guy was ditching a wallet that he pick pocketed. The wallet only had an ID in it, and in Peru it’s difficult to get another ID. So we took the wallet with the ID in it to the police station later in the day.
Quick side note: Peruvian street dogs in Mollendo are way more chill than street dogs in the city. And of course, it’s because they live at the beach. They go swimming when they want to, they chill under anyone’s umbrella when they wish, and just do what ever they pretty much please.
It was a great weekend, and I would definitely spend another weekend in Mollendo.
