Quick Tip: Macro & Micro – looking within the frame
Time is one of your greatest resources at a wedding and when you have the couple to yourself (for those brief moments!) it is imperative to use it wisely. I always try to maximize the variety of my images without dragging my clients all over the venue. The two images above were shot within seconds of each other and yet have a completely different look and feel. The photo on the right (Macro) incorporates the environment of Martis Camp by including the natural surroundings. The photo to the left (micro) is entirely focused on the couple and the emotions that they were feeling in that moment.
How do you go about getting to most out of a shooting space?
Recently, a friend of mine from college passed away from breast cancer. She was in her 30’s, a young, vibrant, intelligent woman and a truly beautiful person. As I perused her Facebook gallery, it was hard to imagine that she has now passed. I couldn’t help but think how this could happen to such a good person, wife, and mother of two beautiful girls.
As I was morning this passing I came across Sue Bryce’s portrayal of another women fighting cancer and found a message of infused with tragedy yet hope. Hard to watch, but so important to see. I am incredibly taken with the story of Jill Brzezinski-Conley. I am moved beyond words of the inspiration behind this beautiful woman’s ability to find the light in even the darkest of situations. The video documentary was created by photographer and friend Sue Bryce and talented film maker Hailey Bartholomew.
I encourage you to share this video and spread her message. #jillinparis

Quick Tip: Clothing Makes a Difference : The two images of Robert Novogratz demonstrate the difference even a quick jacket change can make. In the image to the right (before) Robert’s neutral T-shirt blends into the monochromatic background of the image, making him less of a focal point. Adding the green jacket not only brings an element of texture and structure to the photograph but, also says something about his personality.
