Mallory and Jord

On the 17th I had the privilege of photographing Mallory and Jord's wedding and reception. Their story is amazing, and it was easy to see that they are completely in love with each other. Mallory had done a fantastic job of planning everything long distance from California, so it also turned out to be my first time to meet them. They had a lovely, private ceremony at Phipp's Conservatory, with the colors coordinating perfectly with Mallory's theme (black, red, and white). A reception of family and friends joined them later in the evening at the Le Mont on Mount Washington. Here are just a few photos from the day:

Upgrade and Snow

I'd seen the writing on the wall for my old trusty Canon 20D camera for about a year now, but I'd been waiting for the price to drop on the nifty 50D. Well, I finally made the upgrade, and naturally, I had to take some test photos.

Astin and Jay usually get to be the models for my test photos. Since Jay probably doesn't want photos of him studying in his pajamas plastered across the internet, I'll give you a couple of Astin.

He was looking kind of regal in that one.


And unless you haven't stepped outside lately or watched the weather on TV, you've noticed that it's been a bit chilly to say the least. Before the really cold came, though, I was able to snap a few photos of the snow outside our home.

Amy and Ian's engagement photos

Yesterday, I headed back to Phipps for Amy and Ian's engagement photo shoot. This was actually my first time to meet them, as they're currently living out of state and planning their wedding long-distance. They happened to be in town for the holidays, so we were finally able to meet. I enjoyed getting to hear a bit of their story (I love engagement stories), and I'm very excited about photographing their wedding in August. Here are a few of my favorite photos from the afternoon.

A couple of weeks ago I went to the Phipps Conservatory to take some photographs for a photography "project" that I'm working on. They had their winter flower show going on, so of course, there were lots of poinsettias. Here are some photos from the day.

This flower was amazing at it was half red, half white. It looked like a mutation of sorts.

There were some beautiful orchids. I thought these looked a little Aggie maroon.

I will be heading back to Phipps again soon for an engagement portrait shoot. It's one of the best places to go for good "outside" photos during the winter.
