Lucy and Kyle came fully prepared for a day of shooting with all sorts of props and outfits, but we didn’t need much of that at all. The energy between them was fantastic. Beautiful smiles and big laughs were easy to come by. It certainly didn’t hurt to have what is easily one of the coolest dogs ever, and not just because his name is B. A. Baracus (200 brownie points if you know what that refers to!). Thanks to Lucy and Kyle for looking so good together and thanks to you for taking the time to enjoy their photos! I hope you enjoy them as much as I did creating them.
Lindsey and Justin got hitched this weekend in the gardens of the Lace House at a beautiful ceremony surrounded by friends family and the setting fall sun. I can’t wait to share those photos with you, but I’ve been holding on to these photos of Lindsey from her bridal portrait session for a while now. She was a stunning bride and so much fun to photograph. I hope you enjoy looking at these as much as I did creating them!
This weekend Allison Stoughton married Michael Moore. It was a hot carolina night with a little bit of rain and some of the best dancers in town. And now that it’s official, I can share a few of these gorgeous bridal portraits of Allison with you. Stay tuned for some sneak peaks from the wedding coming this week!
Earlier this year I photographed local artist, DJ, and MC, Preach Jacobs. Since then, Preach has found his way into many of my photographs as he is the organizer of a lot of events around the city these days. One such event is coming up in September and it’s called Cola-Con. Our beloved city is getting it’s very own comic convention! Preach already has some world class comic talent lined up and in keeping with the hip hop focus of this comic convention, Talib Kweli will be performing! Preach will also be the first subject in a new portrait series I’m working on.
Back to portrait photos, these were shot in Preach’s home studio. I’m currently awaiting his next album. Check out his site for links to his music and enjoy the portraits.
This year I’ve been lucky enough to be picked up as the staff photographer for the 701 Center for Contemporary Art and I am absolutely loving it. I’ve covered several events since I started, but the first photos I made for the CCA were of Diana Farfan, the artist in residence, earlier this year. I’ve been holding these photos up until now. The pieces that Diana was working on during her stay at the CCA are about to on display and the opening is this Thursday!
Diana’s work is incredible and truly speaks for itself. She only said a few words about her concept while I was photographing her works in progress and the meaning and the story became immediately clear even when they were unfinished pieces waiting finishing touches and glazes. I am anxiously waiting for Thursday night so I can see all the completed pieces arranged as an installation all created by Diana. Her figure work on these is absolutely stunning.
Photographing Diana was a perfect way to spend a couple of afternoons, and I couldn’t have asked for a better subject. I had so much fun talking with her about her work and her story, which I would love to tell you, but I think Diana can tell you better than I can, so be sure to check her website. I came away with beautiful photos, a better understanding of her work, and a few great artists to check out at her recommendation (Thanks Diana!).
I hope to see you all here on Thursday night. Until then, I hope these photos will tide you over.Read More»
