Carrie Nelson and Jon Spurlock were married at Carrie’s parent’s rice farm in Pleasant Grove, California north of Sacramento. Despite the bugs the outdoor ceremony was beautiful and the recpetion was held in a cleaned up barn with the dance floor out on the back lawn under a full moon. The venue looked fantastic after the hard work of event planner Sasha Souza and Got Light?. Thank you Cheryl for coming up from LA to help me shoot!

    We so enjoyed meeting you this past weekend. I have watched the slideshow at least 20 times and still cry every time I see it. You truly captured the day for us. I also loved the fact that the scenery and light enhanced Kate & Eric instead of stealing the spotlight. You are amazing. Thanks for flying across the country to photograph their special day.

  9. Need Some Advice

    A Couple of days ago I received a phone call from (972) 2840600 & 9722840600 and was convinced the caller was a scam.

    So without thinking, I went nuts - and called the the number and complain.

    I can't believe how retarded I am Gulf Coast Western -an Oil drilling corporation- was trying to make contact was calling to tell me I got the job!

    How do I fix this???

In my travels for the White House took me to over 60 countries around the world and in each place Lauren Pfeifle was there to help me. Either getting me the right credential or access to a unique shooting location she was always fantastic. So when asked to cover her wedding to Scott Willis in Austin, Texas at the Barton Creek Resort and Spa I said I would be honored. Besides seeing good friends it was the chance to eat some great Tex-Mex food at places such as Gueros and enjoy Texas hospitality. Thank you Angela Valek for your help on the shoot!

    Thanks! It was taken with a 24mm f/1.4 right at dusk. The exposure was: ISO: 500, Aperture: 1.4,
    Shutter: 1/50. Because the light was falling the lights in the trees showed up really well and the lamps on the trees lit the couple. It was all hand held.

    Take care,

In this political season I think it’s great when two parties can come together to for a common purpose. In this case it was the marriage of Dana and Tom Manatos in Pittsburgh, PA on July 19, 2008. I knew Dana from working for President Bush and she asked me to photograph her marriage to Tom who currently works for Speaker Pelosi. Dana now works at her family business Edward Marc Chocolatier which supplied the reception with every kind of chcolate you could imagine!

At her time at the White House Dana would do advance work for the President and brought the same level of organization to her wedding right down to the “mini” schedule listing everything from the ceremony time to who should be in the family photos. It was a huge help!

  1. paul, how do not get a silohuette on this! the one with them in the granite hallway? i can't seem to get light on my subjects. did you use a softbox or something?

    There was a large skylight behind me at the start of the hallway that helped light them plus some overhead light fixtures added a bit of light.
