A few months ago I flew out to California to shoot with my friend Sam Hassas. His blog has some images from the wedding and while they’re not enumerated in the post, there are quite a few of my shots in there. Don’t miss the great bonus shot of yours truly at the end!View Comments

That’d be the pictures, the weather and the feeling of the night.

For an upcoming wedding, The bride and I were discussing when to start with pictures and the best way to time events given other constraints. I figured if I had the liberty to define this brief period in time, I would try to do so with as much detail as I could muster.
INTERIOR. AFTERNOON. Tropical Hotel Suite. 03:00 Brooding, auteur photographer enters the hotel suite. Bridemaids swoon and exchange glances. Then giggle. He appraises the room and its occupants, deems them worthy of photography and prepares himself and his equipment. 03:04 All the occupants of the room have been dressed, mostly stockinged-feet dart about. They are donning final accoutrement and attending to each others hair or makeup, or often, tidying the area. Our stealthy photographer has begun to capture details around the room, an intelligence gathering mission in disguise. 03:10 The wedding dress is captured near or far from where it hang, perhaps adjusted slightly, perhaps not. Other details begin to take shape: rings, flowers, shoes and the activity that accompanies the anticipation of a special event. 03:15 The bride is in the last stage of makeup. She is stunning, as all brides are. The remaining touches highlight the key features that define our unique heroine. 03:20 The bridesmaids have assembled in another room with glorious light to prepare the bride's dress for a delicate installation. 03:22 The bride enters, an attendant closes the door slowly behind her. The photographer is left in the hallway, tapping his foot. politely. 03:28 The photographer finds optimum vantage points and deftly records the last few moments of the bride's transformation. 03:30 Attendants gracefully fall away from the bride in awe, leaving her basking in a shimmering sunlit glow. FADE TO BLACK.View Comments
