Tom & Hannah: Married – The Barn at Gibbet Hill

I first met Tom in early 2004 at umpire school - he was the giant who seemed to know exactly what he was doing, like he'd been a big leaguer in a past lifetime. I was...none of those things. Fast forward a couple of years and we spent half a season working together in the Florida State League, where he was still a giant who knew exactly what he was doing while I was still skinny and now sorta knew what I was doing (that's us pregame below in Jupiter in 2006). Jump ahead another decade-plus and both of us are long out of baseball, me doing the photo thing, Tom working for jetBlue. Along the way, he met Hannah, which led to my first ever Wednesday wedding at one of my favorite local venues a couple of weeks back. Using our advanced-umpire radar reading skills, we even managed to dodge the rain for a few outside images after their ceremony got moved indoors due to threat of thunder and microburst tornados.

Kristen & Tommy: Married – Sky Meadow Country Club

If I had to describe Kristen and Tommy in one sentence it would be, "Two people who have SO much fun together." I first met these two last summer for their engagement shoot in Westwood and was incredibly excited to hang out with them again for their wedding a couple of weeks back. Kristen's brother Joey and his family are one of our neighbors and close friends, so hopefully we'll have the opportunity to hang out with these guys again soon. A few favorites (with some captured by second shooter Stephen Grigoriou):

New Custom USB Drives

When I started photographing weddings in 2007, I delivered images via CDs, and eventually DVDs when CDs' maximum capacities no longer was enough for the images we were delivering. Then in 2013, I came across the folks at USB Memory Direct and started delivering custom flash drives with all of my weddings. This coincided well with Apple's removing DVD drives from their iMac's, so I was already searching for a new solution. Fast forward to 2018, and many photographers have started delivering weddings via digital download - which seems like an obvious next step right? Wrong. I never want a couple's first experience seeing their images to be dependent upon the speed of their internet connection or the cloud, and in an age when people are printing less and less, I still find value in the tangible deliverable.

Fast forward to a couple of weeks ago when the USB Memory Direct team reached out to see if I might be interested in testing my logo on some new drive types. Check out the below to see what they came up with. For the present I'll be sticking with my previous design as inventory lasts, but I'm also excited to explore some new paths for deliverables in the near future.
