Lilly Looking Happy

Probably my favorite shot from the wedding. Took me a while to edit, though, because there was a light fixture in the background that appeared to stick straight out of Lilly’s head. Three cheers for the digital age.

First Dance

From Yael and Ross’s wedding.

Will spend the rest of the week sorting the photos from Lilly and Mark’s wedding, where I was actually on the clock.

Both ceremonies were beautiful, and a blast to boot.

Stage Kiss

2005
Fort Worth, Tx.
On Flickr

Even if it borders on cliche, seems like I have to have at least one kiss picture this week.

Looking back at why these, among tens of thousands of wedding photos I’ve taken, stood out, I think it’s because they all have characteristics of good documentary photography. At some point, the photo becomes more than a simple record and achieves a certain quality that makes it more than what’s in front of the lens. As I’ve said before, I’m not sure how to express or quantify this quality, but your eye knows it immediately. I think photographers can capture it only instinctively.

To see a much better example than I can offer, check out the NY Timesprofile of Jill Freedman. Don’t dare miss the accompanying slide show.

Something a little more traditional. From the same wedding as the previous shot. That was a good wedding.
