How I got my digital wedding portfolio:

I got a cryptic phone call from a photographer friend of mine, (Ken Czworka of Ken Czworka Photos) two weeks before this celebration. He tells me, “I have an idea and wondering if you would like to participate?”  Naturally I say, “What the hell are you talking about?” “I have a friend of mine that is getting married and I was wondering if you would like to help with some photography on the wedding?  I have an other photographer Revrend William Smyers on board.” I told him,  “I have not shot a wedding since around 1982 are you sure you want me?” Ken fills me in on his master plan, “The idea is we will be shooting the same things from different point of view and with different gear.” Ken shoots with Pentax, Rev William uses Nikon and I work with Canon. “Sign me up!” is my reply. Thinking to myself, finally I can get some content for a wedding portfolio to put on my web page.

Assignments are finally passed out with Ken as Lead Photographer. The Wedding is on October 6th  2012, I get the pleasure to cross the border and document the Bride Donna, soon to be Donna Graham and her lovely and co-operative brides maids. Her base of operation is the Four Points by Sheraton Niagara Falls Fallsview, in Niagara Falls, Ontario. This room has a fantastic view of the falls. After the shoot in the hotel  room, lobby, and stair case we crossed the border to head to the wedding ceremony in Niagara Falls State Park, Prospect Point in front of the American falls. Where the soon to be Groom Joe awaits. The Three of us photographers meet up and work together. Imagine three large Egos working in unison, I can honestly say I would work with these two guys again anytime! We work on the ceremony and photos after in the visitors center and garden. This is where the store ends for me and my reintroduction back into wedding photography. This time digital.

My thanks to Ken Czworka for asking me to help out, Thanks to Joe and Donna Graham for trusting in me via Ken’s word and allowing me to display selected photos on my web page.  I’m….. Back!

Please note the slide show pictures are the same but different. The first group is the standard style wedding shoot. The second part of the slideshow is the same photos reworked in HDR style. I will be offering wedding packages with a combination of both styles for your special day. Contact me for pricing and packages and thank you for your time in checking this out. Below are examples of a standard shoot and a reworked HDR Photo. To see the quality for your self click on each image.
