wedding at aspetuck valley country club

Funny how coincidences work. I photographed Aspetuck’s member guest tournament in July and this past weekend I had the opportunity to shoot a wedding at the very same venue. Renaud is the club’s manager and now we are very familiar with each other.

I call these my Martha Stewart shots.
I really love the cakes at weddings, they are always so good.

The challenges in shooting weddings are working with conditions where you have to move fast and being ready for something interesting to happen. What I like most about it is showing the bride my interpretation of what happened this one day.

composition is very important to me.

Photographing weddings allows me to use my knowledge of photographing portraits, shooting products and being creative.

Night photography downtown westport

I have a camera on me at all times. It is just a habit that I have and I really enjoy taking photographs. I carry a rangefinder type camera for my spontaneous shooting but every once in a while I will switch to my DSLR ( digital single lens reflex) It is a much bigger and heavier camera than my rangefinder, but it has the best sounding shutter I have ever heard. Okay, the Leica M6 is the best sounding shutter…..

For this shoot I used my Canon 5ds. Which is a 50 megapixel camera and said by most people to be a medium format digital camera. The files are huge. But the shutter is creamy and smooth. The perfect camera for architecture and interiors. But in this case, I used it to capture some night shots in downtown Westport. With the huge files I can really manipulate the images if I want to.
