As some of you may know, the other side of my business is video production. I have done work for Merrill Lynch, American Express, Clark Media, The Acerra Group, The Media People, and various other production companies as a sub contractor. I have a few really interesting projects that I will be producing in the coming months, so I have been refining my editing skills. Here is a really annoying video that I caught of myself sneezing that is really not representative of my other work. I just think it is funny and annoying. Hope you enjoy it.
I was down in Virginia to shoot Pete and Lenny’s engagement pictures at the Army Navy Country Club in Fairfax. It was overcast and I saw a little snow, but that didn’t stop us from having a good time and getting some great shots. Here are some shots from the day.
Then on Sunday I went with Pete to the NRA gun range and we shot his new DPMS.
Here is a target from the shoot. Pete, I think you need to calibrate your sight, it shoots to the left.
Sarah from Northampton Coin and Jewelry sent me another great couple to get their free engagment pictures taken. We spent some time at Bear Creek Mountain Resort. It was a little chilly, but Becky and Chris were able to cozy up by the fire when we went inside.
Visit Sarah at Northampton Coin & Jewelry for great personal attention and a great selection of jewelry.

I spent the day a few weeks ago shooting video camera, audio and video systems for my good friends at Clark Media. They are using the images for some upcoming advertisement.

Over the holidays, Jen, Zoe, Anna and I were in Virginia visiting my sister, her husband and my new niece. After Christmas we went to my cousin Emily’s new house to visit with more cousins and other relatives. It was fun getting together with everyone and talking and running around with all our kids.
My cousin Emily and her husband, Steve, got married in April of 2008. She and my aunt had asked me separately to shoot her wedding. I politely declined, because I wanted to enjoy myself at the wedding and hang out with my family. I didn’t want to miss having fun by worrying if I got the shots that I needed to get. Of course I brought my camera and took tons of pictures. One of my favorites was from the end of the day. Someone noticed that there was still a bunch of fake rice that wasn’t thrown on the couple at the church. So we all made a circle around them and starting throwing the rice. I immediately grabbed my camera and starting shooting, because I noticed what was going on. Emily and Steve were in the moment. They weren’t posing or feeling shy because all the attention was one them. They were genuinely having a great time with their family and friends all around them.
The photographer that they hired didn’t get the shot. Don’t get me wrong. Their photographer did an adequate job. He got the “must have” pictures throughout the day. But I think he missed a lot of the emotion that was all around throughout the day.
I was reminded of this when Emily’s father pointed out that from the hundreds of pictures that were taken of the bride and groom throughout their wedding day, mine was the only one that they had on display and in a prominent location on their mantle. It was the one that caught the emotion of the day.
Thanks Emily and Steve for the great wedding! We have to visit more often!
