Sneak Peeks: Alexa & Clayton at Battle of the Hook

So, when I was at the Battle of the Hook back in October, I had two sets of couples sign up for portrait sessions.  I really love doing these reenactor portraits, as it’s a really unusual take on the typical “engagement” or “couple” photos that you see floating around everywhere these days.  They’re fun because […]

The Germans are coming to New Oxford

A couple weeks ago I attended “The Liberation of New Oxford” in New Oxford, PA.  For this WWII event, the small town dresses itself up as a wartime French village.  Locals and visitors alike gather in the town square as an invading force of Germans eventually arrives and takes over the town.  Almost immediately they […]

New Single-Subject Blog: After Happy Hour

So, earlier this year I started going into DC more often.  I live 15 minutes by metro from one of the most diverse cities in the country, but I rarely go into “the city”.  I’ve been trying to change this, as I want to experience DC a bit more, especially since Marc and I have […]

Sneak Peeks: Amalgamated Classic Clothing & Dry Goods

A week ago today I had the opportunity to be part of something I’ve never done before:  a large scale fashion shoot, complete with stylists, makeup and wardrobe specialists, even a second shooter.  There were almost a dozen models, with multiple looks each, so I have a lot of editing on my plate.  For now […]

Defiance & Independence at Fort Ticonderoga

Early tomorrow morning I am heading up to Fort Ticonderoga for my yearly expedition to shoot their biggest event of the year.  Ticonderoga is one of my favorite sites.  The fort itself has been preserved, maintained, and restored in a wonderful fashion, the setting is to die for, the staff is friendly, helpful, knowledgable, and […]

Playing with the Tokina 11-16mm F2.8

For my shoot this weekend, I decided to test out a “super wide” lens, so I’ve rented a Tokina 11-16mm F2.8 lens.  It’s one I’ve looked at before, but I had never gotten to shoot with it.  Rentals are actually a great way to test out a lens you’re thinking about buying, though the flip […]

Sully Plantation’s WWII Weekend

I originally thought that I wasn’t going to be able to attend the WWII living history event at Sully Plantation this past weekend, but a coworker of mine decided that he wanted more hours and offered to take my shift for me on Sunday, so that I could attend the event.  Marc and I were […]
