St Louis Cathedral – Ceremony
Omni Royal Hotel – Reception and Preparation
Bucktown All-Stars – Band

There’s a myth or story or wise tale about it’s good luck when it rains on your wedding day. Maybe it’s just a southern saying, who knows. The rain faded away and this wedding went great from start to finish. Congrats to Camille and Charlie! Thanks to Chris Pike for assisting me with the photography.

I have a weakness for crop dusters. Crazy? Maybe but true. There’s an art to what they do, a dance in the sky, fascinating.

Iron Maiden’s “Ace’s High” may describe a crop duster in flight perfectly, minus the guns of course.

Leaving St Maarten after a ferry boat ride from Anguilla where I was assisting Matt with Grazier Photography . Thanks to Matt and Enna for allowing me to help out. I apologize on behalf of American Airlines for the dirty wing.

Loved this recent bridal session in the French Quarter. One of my favorites is Malia standing in front of St Louis Cathedral with tourists all around going about their day. I was just metering the light on the Leica then was going to recompose and this “happy accident” happened. Photographer Timothy Allen once said “It can be a trap of the photographer to think that his or her best pictures were the ones that were hardest to get” Enjoy. – Chris

While in DC I found these carp’s movements fascinating, I took at least 30 images within a few minutes just trying to record movements with slow shutter speeds. Enjoy. – Chris

Going to Paris as a photographer is mesmerizing and overwhelming at the same time. I had not been to Paris since I was little, and I was way too young to remember. Most of the photos were of me sleeping here and there in front a famous monument.

As a photographer what do you photograph if you have never held your camera up to this city before? I looked through “Yvon’s Paris” before going and realized pretty quickly there is nothing in Paris that has not been captured by some form of glass before. Yvon’s images set the standard and as a photographer we are pretty much intruding on his streets, his canals, his glimpses of Parisian life. Yet I made my attempt to capture Paris. Paris the way I saw it with just one camera (Leica M8) and one lens(35mm Summicron). Enjoy, – Chris

Some fun with large format. First image is a “Fujiroid” – Fuji color instant film – and the second image from the same shoot with Ilford HP5 4×5 sheet film. Both images recorded with my Polaroid 110A converted to 4×5. Thanks to Kelly & Mark for letting me use this format during our session at Baccanal in the Bywater.
