Rima and Alpesh // Hindi Wedding

Thursday, May 23, 2013  |  WEDDINGS

One of the great things about being a photographer is the people you meet and the places it seems to take you. Rima and Alpesh's wedding was no exception. I had the pleasure of photographing this event alongside the talented and wonderful Nadia D. Photography, and while the wedding was a bit longer than most events that I cover, it was extremely enjoyable and beautiful at the same time. Here's a quick preview from Rima and Alpesh's wedding...

International Photography Experiences

Thursday, May 2, 2013  |  PERSONAL

From time to time I'm asked where my favorite country and/or experience has been. Hands down, it's Africa. I understand that I'm painting with a broad brush by stating that, yet until you hear the language, partake in the culture, and walk the terrain that the locals take, you haven't lived. Ethiopia is no different.

I laugh at myself as I struggle to learn the word for coffee in Ethiopian (by the way, it's "buna"). The words "thank you" seem to take me an eternity to say in Amharic in hopes that I don't say something offensive! I listen to the local radio station blasting sounds I've never heard as a taxi driver zips by. I breathe in the smells of burning incense and fresh popcorn as our new friends invite us to partake in a traditional coffee ceremony. I walk the streets on my way to lunch and feel the crushed gravel and broken pavement beneath my feet. I see the smile on people's faces as they pass by and do a double take because not many white guys seem to be a normal sight (at least that's what I tell myself).

Goodness gracious, I want so desperately to travel abroad and experience these things again and somehow reawaken my senses.

There's only one regret that I have from my time in country and that is the limited amount of time outside of the walls of our house. Our driver (and by default, also interpreter) was gracious enough to drive us around the city of Addis Ababa as I hung out the window to grab a few snapshots. I could have spent days taking pictures and soaking in all that surrounded me, but unfortunately our time was incredibly short.

My hope is that one of you reading this post will someday experience the sights, smells, tastes, etc. that make a country what it is... a beautiful melding of new experiences. I would absolutely love to hear/read what you experienced and even see photos if you are fortunate enough to capture images from your time.













Again, I had to laugh at myself when I took this photo. Reason being is that there is an unspoken goal of mine to carry in all the groceries from the car when my wife goes shopping. I'll load up to 15+ bags on my arms and even toss something on my shoulders if the load isn't too heavy. All this in the name of saving a few trips back and forth. Am I simply being lazy? NO. I call it efficiency.

So, my man pictured below... well done my friend. Well done. You show the rest of us how it's done!

Charleston Engagement Session

Wednesday, May 1, 2013  |  ENGAGEMENTS

I've been blessed to travel the world with my occupation, yet Charleston, SC, holds a place near and dear to my heart. If you've never had the opportunity to visit, I would highly recommend it! From southern "cookin" to the beach and friendly passers-by, there's so much to take in. It's the perfect location for an engagement session (and even a wedding) as there's a sense of romanticism that floats in the air. I can't quite place my finger as to why Charleston has this unique quality, but I'm not one to ask questions of a good thing.

Jennifer and Rollin were recently married (in Charlotte, NC), yet decided to have their engagement session in the great city of Charleston... I'm so glad they did.

What's your favorite place to visit? I'm anxious to find new destinations!
