Jeremy and Brie- Engagement

I love this collection of images from our morning shoot on the UF campus last week. The happy couple were in town for the holidays and we fit this shoot into a very busy day for them. They are both Gators and wanted to have the images reflect some special places on campus. It was a gloomy day but the pictures are full of color and life.

Merry Christmas

......and Happy Holidays! Hope everyone had great celebrations and time with family (and away from work). We had a great Christmas Day and I am loving my new Ipod Touch. We went down to Orlando for a couple days this week and stayed at the amazing Gaylord Palms (5-stars with all the trimmings!). MGM Studios was fun and I brought back this cool image from the light show.

Hope everyone has a great New Year!

Foggy Morning

On my way to work today and thought I better shoot an image of all the fog that had hit the area. I stopped at the boat ramp on the way to Gainesville and found this guy getting ready to go fishing. Wish I could have hopped on the boat and gone fishing with him.

Justin and Jenna- Engagement

These two lovebirds are getting married next year in Michigan and I am sorry to say I am not shooting the wedding. Regardless, Jenna is a stickler for details and found a great photographer for their wedding. How do I know this about her you might say? Jenna came to work at the beginning of the year at the Gainesville Sun as an online producer fresh out of college. Being in the photo department we worked hand in hand. Well she single handedly transformed our online website and approach to the web edition and multimedia to a futuristic level and has been promoted right out of the building and into the NY Times corporate office......and the year is not yet over.

We shot these at the Thomas Center in Gainesville a couple weeks ago.

Good luck Jenna!

Engagement- Jordan and Skyler

Just a November jaunt through the UF campus but I am so happy with the gems we found and the great frames we made. Skyler was a news editor at the Sun with me for a couple years before leaving for law school (never hurts to know a good lawyer) and Jordan is an engineering student and is super cool. The shoot was lots of fun and Marian contributed some great second angles to add to the take. Hope you like it.

Engagement- Eric and Pam

This was our second beach shoot of the day and we employed some new styles and poses. Engagement shoots are tough for me in that my strength is telling the story of the day as it unfolds not the situation of let's meet somewhere and take posed photos. In these cases I have always reverted back to my traditional style which is good for the shoot but produces stiff and boring results. Marian has been researching some innovative ideas that allow us to develop more stylized shots that are more journalastic but still posed. I hope you see the results in the upcoming e-sessions we post.
Anyway, Eric and Pam are such a great couple and they jumped right into the session (literally) and their comfort allowed for us to produce a great series of images. Check them out as they are fun fun fun-

Wedding- Jeff and Lauren

Jeff and Lauren got married last weekend at Queen of Peace church with the reception at Sweetwater Branch Inn, both in Gainesville. I cannot say enough kind words about them. You can just tell that they make each other better and that is the highest compliment one could make. The images are great and this wedding was a ton of fun. I had to repeatedly pinch myself so I remembered I was actually working. The bummer is no more weddings on the books till February.
