Wedding season has started in North Carolina! It’s starting out cold. I don’t know what the groundhog saw on his day in February, but I’m having my doubts now. Despite the cold the wedding continued with warm smiles and warm hearts.
I had great time assisting Jim Colman at Leanna and Matt’s wedding at The Oaks at Salem in Apex, NC. You can see Jim’s blog post from the wedding here. Here are some of my favorite shots from my camera.
I had the honor of photographing and taking video of Operation Inasmuch in Fayetteville, NC this past weekend. The community of Snyder Memorial Baptist Church came together and had a field day of all sorts of activities from providing car check ups, making bags of goodies to pass out, and even repairing a roof. You can see all the action in the photos and videos below.

UPDATED: Be sure to check out Erum Rizvi’s photos from the wedding here.
This was one of the funnest weddings I’ve ever had to be apart of. I had a blast assisting Erum Rizvi on an adventure I’ll remember forever. We hopped into multiple locations in various limos, saw the guests bombard the hotel lobbies and streets with parades and music, and even joined in on the limbo dance at the reception.
Below are some highlights from the day.
Looking forward to this movie coming out! I love street photography and this is a great tribute to a mysterious street photographer who’s work is finally being acknowledged.
Makes me wonder about Vivian Maier – did she do it for the love of art? Is this her way of connecting with the world? Why didn’t she develop all the film she took? I guess we’ll have to see!

Ansel Adams is an inspirational photographer to many. If he were alive today he would be 111 and could probably still knock out awesome photos. I would love to see how he would capture a moonbow at Yosemite Valley.
Here are a couple of my favorite quotes from him:
You don’t take a photograph, you make it.
A good photograph is knowing where to stand.
In wisdom gathered over time I have found that every experience is a form of exploration.
Sometimes I do get to places just when God’s ready to have somebody click the shutter.
Photography, as a powerful medium of expression and communications, offers an infinite variety of perception, interpretation and execution.
A lot of the headshot work I’ve done last year was corporate work. For some it can be a hassle getting up to leave at 3am for a gig to come back at 11pm at night, but I enjoy the travel, the people I work with, and the help I get during the session. It’s a team effort and we get it done with a little bit of fun. Okay, with a lot of fun.
Here’s a short BTS video of what happens during an on-location corporate headshot session. Thanks to Nathan Abplanalp for the video footage.
