Sixteen months ago Grace was only a few weeks old and I had to leave mom and baby to fly to Baltimore to shoot Jenn and Nick’s wedding. The wedding went great and I returned to the challenges of being a new dad. A few months ago, close to their one-year wedding anniversary, Jenn emailed to tell me that they were ready to make their wedding album.
My personal preference is to custom design the album and have it printed by GraphiStudio. After the initial design their is usually some back and forth regarding image changes but they were happy with the album as I designed it. The following are two-page spreads from the album. They chose to go with a leather bound album printed on metallic paper. When it arrives from the Graphi I’ll post some pics.
If your photographer did you the disservice of just handing you a disc after your wedding feel free to email or call (310.922.5094) to discuss having a wedding album designed for you. What’s the chance you’ll have that disc when you want to show your son or daughter how great your wedding day was?
You never know who’s going to see your work or how it’s going to lead to something else.
I got a call from a friend whose real estate agent saw a photo I had shot of their home and wanted to it use in the marketing of their home. In 2006 the Knight’s commissioned me to shoot several of the most important places in their life. I shot their first home, their current home, the hospital where their boys were born, the location of their first date, and a couple other locations around LA that are dear to their hearts. If I remember correctly this was the location of their first date.
Since then I have shot numerous projects for their landscape and lighting design business. The following image was of a home in Venice. John designed the fire and water features in addition to the landscaping.
Now that they are in the process of selling their home I contacted their listing agent to discuss the details of using the image from 2006. I showed her recent examples of my architectural photography and a few hours later I was shooting the entire house.
