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):
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.
Disclaimer: While I've been a paying USB Memory customer for years, and will continue to be, they supplied these new test drives at no charge.
Let me get this out of the way up front - great parties with amazing bands lend themselves to long blog posts. Audrey and Derek's recent Seaport Hotel wedding was exactly that - a (insanely warm) gorgeous summer wedding with a ridiculously enjoyable party. I first met Audrey a couple of years ago when I photographed her sister Maria's wedding, and was excited to spend another day with their family celebrating. I was joined for this one by good friend Stephen Grigoriou and many of his photos appear below. A few favorites:
