Luciens Manor Wedding – Erica & SteveMay 2nd, 2011

Todays wedding was like that TV show, My Big Friggn’ Wedding.. EVERYTHING about this wedding was big, check out the pictures you’ll see what I mean. The spring weather is really kicking in, awesome perfect weather, I wish it was like this every day! So we started off at the bride (Erica’s) parents house, this was our second time here because last year we shot her sister Tia’s wedding. Erica was really easy to photograph so I couldn’t put my camera down, every move she made gave me more ideas and she loves being in front of the camera so it was perfect. And this wedding is extra ordinary because she has 14 bridesmaids and Steve has 14 groomsmen, so yeah, BIG friggin wedding all the way!!

Easter Day – Post Apocalyptic Couples Shoot!!April 24th, 2011

Most people eat candy and hide eggs on Easter. Not me, I work and have fun taking pictures!!! I met Kandi on ModelMayhem and she was interested in doing a shoot with her fiance and mentioned that they have a dark/gothic style to them, and I noticed it in her pictures a post apocalyptic style picture and bam the light switch came on!!! “Lets do a post apocalyptic couples shoot!!!!!” I have never seen this done before so I’m gonna say score for me, more originality points!!

Anyways we went to a couple locations that I know of that were close to my favorite meeting location IKEA South Philly! I know a bunch of other spots to shoot the post apocalypse theme but it would require more traffic and going to north east philadelphia, kensington, port richmond, but I didn’t want to spend all of our shooting time on the road. So, for the first spot we visited today there are some trains that looked like they have been sitting for a while, so we made ourselves at home while being cautious of all the sharp barbed wire and rusty metal on the ground.. Then we walked to this nearby place that had a whole bunch of wooden crates, and finally we ended up at my all time favorite shooting spot that I have been to MILLIONS of times. What a great day for pictures, 81 degrees and the sky was nice, hottest day of 2011 so far..

** SPECIAL NOTE **
Most photographers, when they mess up on photos they edit them HEAVILY (adjusting brightness/contrast/saturation and more) to cover up their mistakes.. I don’t have to edit my pictures because they come out good from the beginning, but for this shoot I chose to edit them to fit the post apocalyptic theme, below is a sample of what my photos look like before edit. I am providing my couple with edited and non-edited photos just in case they don’t like my editing.

Portuguese Wedding – Vera & JacintoApril 16th, 2011

When I arrived at the wedding it first it sounded like people were speaking Spanish, then other people were talking in what sounded like Russian… I never claimed to be a know it all or a would traveler, but I have met many people that speak many languages, and this Spanish/Russian hybrid language had me Stunned!! It wasn’t long before someone said “Portuguese” then I figured out the whole deal. The day started in south philly at the brides home where we took some pictures of her getting ready. We had a new videographer with us so it was interesting, and I was watching some of the things that he was doing so I can learn some new video shooting techniques and different angles. Then the limo bus from ETA Worldwide came to pick up the bride, and dropped her off at the church. It sucked that it was all rainy outside so we didn’t get to shoot outside but we still got some cool shots at the Incarnation Of Our Lord – Roman Catholic Church.

Philly Wedding – Sarah & MarkApril 9th, 2011

GREAT DAY FOR A WEDDING!! The weather yesterday was cold and rainy all day, today was the complete opposite!! I think it was close to 75 degrees all day and the sun was out and there was a nice cool breeze blowing around, absolutely perfect day for a wedding. And what makes it even better is that everything is all in philly and it’s all really close, so we packed light with out equipment so we didn’t have to carry a bunch of big bags around with us all day. Parked the car in Old City then took a cab to the location where we were to meet the bride, just so we didn’t have to worry about traffic and finding a parking spot when we got there. So when we arrived at the Ritz Carlton Philadelphia when we got inside and went up to the room on the 27th floor I was going nuts taking pictures of City Hall because I have never seen it from so high up before and I never knew when the opportunity would come again… Then started taking pictures of the groom putting his cuff-lings on and his really nice Rolex. After the groom was ready we went over to see the bride in her suite, took pictures of her getting ready and her flowers from Sansone & Co Inc. Florist. She had a really cool veil from Unveiled Brial Designs that really complimented her look and her dress, everything was perfect!

Wedding at Please Touch Museum – Cheryl & DouglasApril 8th, 2011

For today’s wedding I am shooting video and second shooting photos. I really didn’t get to take many photos at all which is unfortunate, but it was still a lot of fun doing video and I got a lot of great stuff. The weather was super cold and it rained ALL DAY!! Wow talk about a bummer!! And the part that makes it even more of a bummer is that todays wedding was at the Please Touch Museum, that place is awesome! For those of you who don’t know what it is, it’s like a big playground for kids, even big kids have fun with the stuff in there!! I heard of it before and I actually shot here once before doing an engagement shoot. We just kind of stumbled on it when we were driving around Fairmont Park and we just shot outside of the building, I never actually went inside before until today! When I heard that today’s wedding was at the Please Touch Museum I was surprised and EXCITED, also they had a big band coming to the wedding, The Sensational Soul Cruisers. Like last week I mostly shot video so I don’t have much to show here, I only really took photos during the reception so here they are…

April Fools Wedding – Kelly & TonyApril 1st, 2011

Happy April Fools!! I knew this day was gonna be full of jokes and pranks, when I was told I was going to be second shooting a wedding on April Fools my first thought was.. “is this a joke?!”. haha
For this day I was shooting video and doing pictures too, so I did not take nearly as many pictures as I usually do, but that is fine.

The wedding ceremony was held at Holy Cross Church, It is a pretty big place with 2 big sanctuaries, one on the first floor and one on the second, I never seen anything like it before!! During the ceremony, one of the things that the priest said really was pretty funny and he kinda had a good point, “at least you won’t have to worry about forgetting your wedding date!!” haha… Here are some pictures of the ceremony.

Liberty VIP 2011 Car CalendarMarch 16th, 2011

So Alex had the opportunity to shoot the 2011 car calendar for Liberty VIP, an exclusive car club for luxury, VIP-style car owners. We traveled up and down the east coast to do photoshoots of select club member vehicles from DC, Jersey, NYC, Philly and even Boston! The calendar print company selected to print the calendars is a major PAIN IN THE BUTT though and production of the calendars has taken way longer than it should. But anyways we got our hands on a couple copies, and they were given to videographer Kenny Cano to shoot a quick teaser preview of the calendar!! He does great work and it really showcases the calendar well!! Watch it in HD for better quality on his Vimeo
