Top Ten important things to remember as a bride when hiring a wedding photographer.

1. The night before your wedding drink a lot of water.

2. Make sure to hire a professional makeup artist, and less is more.

3. Wear a beautiful bridal gown that you love and do not give into the pressures of others on what to wear.

4. Make sure to have a beautiful flower bouquet as it adds A wonderful accent.

5. On the day of your wedding try to forget all of the various crazy things going on and simply enjoy the moment after all this is a once in a lifetime event.

6. Never hire the cheapest wedding photographer, this is the one day where paying the right price for quality is the right thing to do.

7. Decades later after the dancing, the flowers, and in the food, all you will have two remember this wonderful day is your wedding photos and albums.

8. My aunt who was married for 67 years still cherishes after 70 years the wedding photo albums from that amazing day.

9. Make sure you order the very highest Quality wedding albums and Prints as they are the most important way you will remember this special day.

10. And most importantly, hire the very best wedding photographer you can afford, this is no time to be cheap.

Shooting NYC Weddings with.....FILM!

Hi All. I wanted to mention, as a New York City Wedding Photographer.I occasionally get asked or decide to shoot some of my NYC Weddings with a film Camera. I own several, a 35mm Nikon F4S that is amazing. I also shoot with an incredible Bronica S2A with a Nikkor 75mm F/2.8 lens and an amazing 50mm Wide Nikkor F/4. The reason is simple, with certain light a 6x6cm image shot on film will have a quality un matched in digital. Weddings are all about feel, and NYC Brides want to feel special, and I can capture a special moment or feeling with these film cameras that Digital sometimes lacks. The ethereal feeling of the light and structure of film grain and colors lends itself to a romantic and sensual feeling that is very difficult to capture with a digital camera.

Shooting with my Bronica 6x6cm camera with these incredible Nikon lenses is a real blessing. The Nikon lenses are tack sharp, and render color superbly. Shooting film whether it is black or white or color depends on the mood and the light and the feeling you're trying to go for. A shoot brides in Brooklyn and throughout New York, and sometimes it is the exact right thing to capture the mood.

Black-and-white film especially can be wonderful when you were shooting with a medium format camera, the Tonal range is unmatched.

New York City wedding photography is very competitive so I try to shoot film to create and advantage and create a look that brides in New York will love.

Apple Aperture 3.0 and why I miss Steve Jobs

I am a wedding Photographer as well as a Fine Art Photographer based in NYC. I use state of the art Mac's and Apple Aperture 3.0 software. I am using latest Fuji Raw file that came out 3-4 months ago. YET,still Apple does not support files. Its also a very long time,(3 plus year) since Apple came out with new Version, number 4.

In Technology you must be adaptive, innovative and responsive.Be ahead of the curve, cutting edge, way out front.

When Steve Jobs was alive he had a way of being able to deliver cutting edge mind-blowing technology and always surprising you.

Now Apple seems to sorta coast. Good stuff they make but not responsive to Professional photographers needs.

Not Steve Job'sian!

Reflecting Upon 2013

As I find 2013 winding down its last gasps of wind and snow I reflect upon a year that certainly has proven interesting. I am surprised to find myself doing something I truly love,Photography.I am shooting weddings in the New York City area. Its slow going to build up the business but its growing and I get a great satisfaction from doing something I love and thats my lives passion. If you can work at what is your passion you really are not working, your growing.

I am growing and I am also transitioning into a new complicated phase of my life. My father is slowly passing.He is 87 and losing altitude from his old vibrant self. The loss is very hard to experience but inevitable. I hope I can travel with him to the other side and give both of us some long sought peace. We shall see.

I also find much to my amazement that i have fallen deep in love with a wonderful, kind, loving and sexy woman named Heidi. Its so un expected and yet fills my heart and soul in truly unimaginable ways that I cannot describe.

Love is the best way to realize whats truly important in life. It helps you define what really matters.

2014 will be a challenge but with love in my heart and passion in my eye I hope to have an extraordinary year.

Cherrelle and Rob Engagement Photos 2013

I recently had the pleasure of shooting some wonderful engagement photo's of Cherrelle Evans and Rob Hall in Central Park and then around the 14th street Meatpacking District. The light was late day afternoon fleeting golden sun light.This is my favorite type of light to photograph Brides and soon to be brides as its so amazing and glows!

We went into Central Park up towards 87 street then we were near the Central Park Reservoir. I was shooting with a Nikon D3 and a 24-70mm Nikkor but my go to lens was the 85mm F/1.4. This is a killer lens with sublime Bokeh at wide open.

After shooting for 30 minutes we headed to the Meat Packing District where with the after glow of the sun setting we got some fabulous images! It was a real pleasure photographing Rob and Cherrelle and really look forward to photographing their Wedding in September.

Shooting Hasselblad 500CM with B/W film

I went out into NYC and went photographing with a Hasselblad 500CM with a Zeiss 80mm F/2.8.
I was walking along the east river near the Brooklyn Bridge. I also was using a Minolta Spot meter and Ilford FP4 Film. It was very liberating to take a slower methodical approach to each shot. You need to contemplate each image, each shot is a frame and the film back only takes 12 shots. Then you must reload the film back which takes about 2 minutes. So, the process is methodical and takes time, but I am certain the film will reward with great images.

I shoot weddings in NYC and there are occasion when i shoot film for my wedding clients, but mostly I shoot Digital. I expect to eventually get a digital back for the Hasselblad and get great mind-blowing images! Its why I love the Hasselblad 500CM. Its future proof, it allows me continue the legacy that I started in 1975.

Rest In Peace Curt Ward

I was informed this evening of the sudden passing of a dear friend whom i met while I was starting up an amphibious sightseeing company here in Red Hook in 2007-2008. I partnered with Liberty Helicopter and worked closely with a man named Curt Ward. Curt grew to be a dear and close friend thou brief. He was a Former Sandy hook Pilot, the captains that help guide in tankers into NY Harbor. His skill in maritime matters was only surpassed by his kind and generous soul and willingness to befriend me as the Founder, and my insatiable desire to get my small company off the ground and into business. Curt had immense maritime knowledge as well as mechanical knowledge and also other areas. He was such a sweet man, it pains me so deeply to have lost such a friend. May you rest in Peace on the great ocean and sea that you loved and may you always find love in your soul my dear friend.You will be missed.

I work as a wedding photographer in NYC. I encounter a lot of vendors in my work and sometimes some of them stick out for the amazing way they do business and who they are.

I happened to be chatting with Deanna at Saipua a few days ago. She and Sarah the owner do lots of hand made flower arrangements for weddings and each one is amazing. the dedication to all natural flowers and craft is a pleasure to watch.

Being a great wedding photographer in NYC requires working with great people and so I highly recommend you take a look at them.
