Micah + Morgan // Proposal

Not that 99% of proposals are aren't surprises, but Micah did it right! Together with The Yes Girls' planner Elie, the proposal went off without a hitch. I was concealed in some bushes waiting for Micah and Morgan to walk by to provide some truly candid moments with the 70-200mm. I was honored to be able to capture this moment for them to have to look back on for the rest of their lives. These shoots are exhilarating. Being responsible for capture a fleeting moment like this with accuracy is a rush. When I went to change lenses before taking a few portraits of the couple after the proposal, my hands were shaking just as much as Micah's!  If you are looking to surprise your future wife/husband with a special proposal whether it be simple & laid back or extravagant, you can contact The Yes Girls at their website www.theyesgirls.com or connect on twitter @yesgirlsevents

5D mk III Wedding Image Example

 This was my first wedding shooting with the Canon 5D mk III, and I have to say, that it really made a difference in image quality. In my year of shooting weddings with the mk II, I never got a docu shot this clear in such low light. This was taken at iso 3200 24mm f/2.8 at 1/50 sec.  The dynamic range, life like color and quickness with which the camera responded allowed this moment to live on in all of its importance.
