Debra & Bradley - October 20th, 2007

We're coming to the end of our wedding season and we couldn't believe the weather this past Saturday. It didn't feel like October weather, especially not late October.

Brad and Debra got some great skies for backgrounds, and at first she was concerned about a cathedral length veil, but with the light winds, it took a mind of it's own and made some amazing action shots. Deb you were right! It was a perfect choice for pictures.

Her gown was perfect! Deb was stunning all night long and her dresser Samantha, from Priscilla of Boston made sure it remained picture perfect all day long. Laura and I agree that it was a pleasure working with you Sam. We also got the chance to work with Jim from Boburka Video for the first time, another pleasure! Jim set up a projector and showed all the guests a small engagement film he made of Brad and Deb, not only was it funny but I think I caught a few tears in the crowd... well done!!

Jim has even volunteered to give us some video footage of Laura and I in action... I can't wait! I hope I can get it posted on here too.

Here's their reception slideshow we put together --- ENJOY!

A Blog Facelift

My friend Andy and I just wrapped up the blog's new facelift. I'd love to hear opinions, comments, even what you don't like so I can make it better.

Andy's a "wiz" with HTML code and his work is really impressive. He did our friend Joy's blog a few weeks ago and I really like how it came out. We've been so busy with so many awesome weddings, I've had to put it off till now.

I'd especially appreciate feedback on what you see with different browsers and screen sizes. I can only test it on ours and don't know if it all lines up perfectly for everyone else.

Emily & Mike - Oct 6th, 2007

This past Saturday Laura and I experienced another awesome wedding. Mark from Queen of Hearts once again had his personal touch in every detail. From the on-site assistance of Saget's Formal Wear, to actually seeing Mark himself pinning the brides fallen train up mid dance.

Emily and Mike were married in the Historic St. George's United Methodist Church in Philadelphia and had their reception at the very cool Down Town Club overlooking Independence Hall. We even took a quick walk around and got the Liberty Bell in the background. I'm told there's some irony here with my being English and all.

Getting my kitchen back

A lot of photographers have a "routine" the day before a wedding. Ours pretty much takes over our kitchen. Between Laura and I, we use 8 Canon camera batteries, and 36 AA batteries...yes I said 36 AA batteries. So thats a lot of battery chargers, not to mention a lot of counter space being used to keep charged and uncharged batteries separate. We may not use them all.. but I like to be prepared.

So after some looking around I never really found a product out there that fit my need. So I made one. I hope this inspires some of my photographer friends to make their own.. or even think up some new stuff for things we do.

Inside there is room for 4 chargers and and some fluted sections to hold the AA batteries. The best part though is when the lid is closed it just blends in with the other furniture.
