2015 in Retrospect

2015 brought several new career challenges besides many beautiful weddings.  I had the pleasure of working with some lovely couples documenting the emotion, sentiment and joy that radiates from their special day.  The following are a few of the images shot during 2015.  I wanted to share some of these moments; some joyful, some tenuous, but most, just simply beautiful.

I was also lucky enough to go on assignment for Scott & Stringfellow in Wilmington, N.C. The shoot involved travelling to an old lighthouse located on Bald Head Island (nicknamed "Old Baldy"). A good friend of mine, Jeff Merten, also took along his drone to get shoot some footage from an arial point of view. The goal was to use the symbolism of the lighthouse as the setting to tie together the feelings of guidance, stability, safety, etc.  I have always been a big fan of shooting old structures and architecture in their present condition using the available light to show off texture and shadow. The following are some of the images taken during the assignment.

On a completely different note, I also enjoyed working with American Family Fitness in Short Pump and Williamsburg.  The assignments consisted of shooting members in action and a state of the art piece of measuring equipment. What an interesting and challenging year!
