Financial Company Branding Photoshoot

I photographed for Felix and Steve in the past. Maybe around 5 years ago they were working just the two of them as financial planners. They needed headshots for their business and I was happy to shoot for them. Felix also needed a photographer for his wedding, and I was more than happy to shoot his wedding. Relationships are important because people remember that you did a good job or you made them feel comfortable in front of the camera. There are many reasons to why they will rehire you for something.

Fast forward a few more years and now Felix and Steve have added 3 more people and they are renting in a gorgeous building in South Norwalk. I am so happy that they hired me to photograph the new team. They are called Guidelight Financial and they are fun to work with.

Guidelight’s office is located at 50 Washington Street

Connecticut Garden Wedding

We beat the storm!! There was a lot of concern whether we would beat the weather. Hurricane Henri was on its way and it missed us by a day. Unfortunately my Sunday event wasn’t so lucky but I am told they will be rescheduling it soon.

Allison and Bobby were married during Covid-19 so they chose this past Saturday to have friends and family celebrate with them. The father and mother of the groom held the event at their beautiful home on the Westport, Fairfield border. The gardens were gorgeous and we chose to take the “posey” shots there. Friends and family wandered the grounds which included a pool and a barn that was converted into a lounge.

After a tiny misting, everyone entered a tent where the party continued. I used a variety of lenses for this shoot. My favorite portrait lens is an 85mm 1.8 fixed lens, I really enjoy how you can blur out the backgrounds with it.

what a great garden
mix of natural light with fill in flash
getting candid

landscape photography in Washington Connecticut

There are many different types of photography and I never like to say that I am just a portrait photographer, or I only shoot products. Because I don’t. I am a multi genre photographer. Which means I do everything from corporate headshots, to architecture photography , to landscape photography. I have a drone so I also do a lot of aerials for clients. Branding photography is very big right now and I enjoy that a lot as well.

One of my favorite genres of photography is shooting landscapes. This usually entails someone from a firm giving me a shoot list or a must have list and then the rest falls on me. That is the best part, because I really enjoy getting down and dirty and getting close to nature. I have many different lenses, but one of my favorites is the 50mm canon macro 2.5. I don’t think they make it anymore, but it is one of my favorites for getting macro images and has terrific bokeh.

This shoot was for Hoffman Landscapes. They are located in Fairfield County.

I love the moss that is in between the slate.
I get ideas from shooting these properties for working on my own property.
Here we started first thing in the morning. Best light morning light.
very satisfying photo shoot, I had such a great time photographing this estate.

Photography in Rochester

A photo shoot in Rochester New York was in the cards for me, but I also had the opportunity to take a bike and my camera and become a tourist for a couple of hours. I don’t always get a chance to do this, but in most cases I will try to make some time to explore. Rochester is gritty and it is fun to photograph.

I rode the rail trail that goes right through the center of Rochester
and I finally got to see the kodak building. I used all of their films in the day.Tri x, plus x, delta porta… such wonderful memories.
just north of the city on the rail trail. That is not smoke, it is mist and you can feel it…
