Mangmang and Yinqing were recently married at the Castle Hill Inn in Newport. These are just a few of my favorite photographs from their wedding day.
The other day I photographed a wedding at Castle Hill in Newport. While almost the entire wedding was shot digitally, we also did a few rolls of instant Fuji peel apart film on the Mamiya Universal Press camera. I love that this medium format camera from 1974 is still bringing joy.
Yesterday I photographed Mangmang and Yinqing’s wedding at Castle Hill, Newport. It was the perfect May day in New England. These are just a few portraits of Mangmang. Their full wedding day story is coming soon.
Last week I spoke at Photo Nights Boston about developing your photography voice and style through exploring other areas of visual art. I thought it would be nice to share some of my personal, non-wedding photography work.
I’m not someone who picked up a camera when I was 3 or even 15 — photography came later. Long before I ever took a photograph, I was drawing and painting. I had a hard time with color so in college I majored in Printmaking, which generally has limited color and relies more on drawing and line. Now, years later, I love color. Photographing weddings — especially when there are beautiful landscapes and floral arrangements — has helped me to see color in a new way. And so before the wedding season craziness kicks in, I’m enjoying color more freely through painting. Here’s something I painted this past week.
A few friends and I are going to be speaking this Wednesday, April 24 at Photo Nights Boston event “Kickstart Your Wedding Season.” This is an educational event for new and experienced wedding photographers to help you take your 2013 wedding season to the next level. Topics include: fine art photography and wedding work, better relationships with planners and other vendors, family formals, workflow, defining your style, working with challenging light, and photojournalism.
There are some great prizes from Zenfolio, RedTree Albums, Pictage, Fundy, Renaissance Albums, LensProToGo, and more! Plus drinks, appetizers, and a photo booth. It should be fun and all of the proceeds go to Photo Nights Boston. You can learn more about Wednesday’s event and purchase tickets here.
Hope to see you all there!
