Erin & Tom

I think one of the things that makes a wedding so special is that it’s a milestone, not just for the couple, but for everyone present. On a wedding day, you experience the full spectrum of emotion. You reflect on the past, live in the moment and dream about the future. It’s not something we tend to do every day. Of course, love and happiness fills the air at every wedding, but if you look deeper, there is always much more going on. No story is simple.

Erin and Tom both lost their fathers some years ago. I know first hand, the grief of loosing someone close; it’s something you carry with you, in part, forever. Photographing their wedding, I could feel the gravity of the day. On days like these, it’s like life gets condensed into a single day. Everything is amplified. Some chapters close, others begin. It’s a beautiful thing.

For something different, I brought along my Tachihara 4×5 wooden field camera a.k.a. the Tachy. So no, those are not fancy photoshop filters. That’s the real deal.

A big thanks to my buddy Oli Sansom for coming along to shoot with me.

  11. Marianne Taylor — Loving your storytelling. And her dress! And the unexpected round/triangle/etc frames. Lovely.
  12. Becca Dilley — I am actually really blown away by this set of images. There is such a “still life” quality to so many of them – a little dark and composition-ful, and a quiet-ness to them. I was really surprised to see how they all fit together into this wonderful story of a wedding day – the whole is very emotional and lively, even though the individual images are so still. And I love your inclusion of the different shapes of images – it brings an editorial feel to the curation. Just very thought provoking. Also, obviously, beautiful.
  13. Andrea Javarauckas — Wow, great style…the couple at the end of the tunnel is an EPIC shot! Nice work.

  17. Mike Cassimatis — Fantastic work. Your processing compliments your style really well.
