Thanks to +Offbeat Bride! My article about the importance of prints has been published.
As a wedding photographer, I hear these two statements all of the time: “we aren’t worried about prints right now” or “we will order prints after the wedding.” Here's why you should think about going through the pain-in-the-ass process of turning that convenient USB drive into real life wedding prints...

When colorful meets industrial meets urban, you get this charming Brooklyn soirée! Annie & Forrest are as cute as they come, and their wedding creativity has us completely smitten over here. They made the absolute most of their wedding destination by taking advantage of all the nooks & crannies around the city for their photo backdrops while hosting their ceremony & reception at Frankies 457. With flowers in her hair, Annie made a stunning bride,...

I’ve been unhappy with myself for the last couple months because I haven’t taken the time to shoot personal work. The only way for me to progress is to get out and shoot for myself. I was starting to get lazy and make excuses for why I can’t do better. It was starting to become easier to blame others for why I wasn’t pushing myself. I always fear rejection and this fear was prohibiting my development. I finally stopped making excuses and started to reach out to people that I wanted to work with. Even the first step was hard for me because a lot of talented people ignored my emails. the amazing thing is that some actually 
responded.

Following my passion never really gets easier. Once I reach one goal I have already created another. I’m trying to appreciate the little and big accomplishments, which is very hard these days because of all of the talent in the world and the access to view it 24/7. I don’t think I will ever completely feel like I’m on the right path to create the type of images I want, however I think life would be extremely boring if I knew the outcome before starting the journey.

Anyone else struggling with their ambitions or better yet anyone conquered the thing they’ve been struggling with?

And, thanks to Lizzie Gunst for being one of the talented ones that responded.

I really enjoy shooting in Upstate NY. I'm grateful for Meghann and Matt allowing me hang out with them for the weekend and be part of their beautiful wedding at the Full Moon Resort.

Guess who Ariel and I partied with at Lovesick in San Francisco? Our sponsor Dustin Cantrell! We had a blast with this guy who (we decided) is as awesome as he is talented. Which means it's a safe bet that you will have a blast with him at your wedding… no matter where it is. Let's look at some of Dustin's favorite shots from his favorite locations, while we talk about his three favorite things about shooting offbeat couples…

Why do you have a couch surfing profile?

"I have a couchsurfing profile because I want to have faith in people. There is so much good in this world and in its citizens and often times I feel like people have a tendency to get scared and forget that."
