San Francisco City Hall Wedding – Briitta & Mathijs

San Francisco City Hall Wedding – Briitaa and Mathijs

Briitta and Mathijs had such a lovely city hall wedding. It was just the three of us, and the justice of the peace. We built time in before and after the ceremony to explore the city and make portraits. They were so very happy, and easy in front of the camera. They took me to a super fun hotel with a great view of the city.

Low-Light Wedding Photography San Francisco – Emma and Max

Emma and Max

Emma and Max had a delightful low key wedding on a lovely May day. They told me they wanted lots of fun candid photographs, so I did just that. Their guests were good dancers, which made everything easy.

The wedding reception was held in a white tent, so bouncing my flash off the ceiling was always a good option, but I like to mix it up. There are five different flash setups here. Let’s start with simple, and proceed from there:

#1 Bounce flash. This is a very simple technique. My flash is set to ettl and pointed up and behind me. The camera is on manual exposure with a high enough iso to let ambient light in.

#2 Shutter Drag. This is also just one flash. Here the flash is pointed directly at my subject, and zoomed in a bit at 1/4 power. The camera is in manual iso 100 f18 1.6 sec shutter.

#3 Backlight. This is two flashes on light stands at 1/128 with a trigger on camera. Almost all of the light is coming from behind. All settings are manual here. Sets the mood, doesn’t it?

#4 key light plus hair light. This is the same setup as the last, but I am standing in position for one of the two flashes to act as a key light.

#5 Two kickers plus fill. Here I have the two flashes on stands, but I have added bounce flash at 1/4 power on camera as a fill for a more balanced look at a delightfully chaotic scene.

Charles River Museum of Industry Wedding – Joanna and Diana

Charles River Museum of Industry Wedding – Joanna and Diana

Joanna and Diana were married in a sweet wee park in Waltham, MA on a sunny September day. A family heirloom served as their chuppah roof. I adored their vows; each wrote their own history of their love, and their dreams for their collective future. Joanna and Diana were particularly attentive to the way that a wedding is a gathering of community. It is not only the couple who make a vow to nurture and protect the partnership, it is also their extended community who make that vow. Family and chosen family eagerly hoisted the two on chairs for the hora, which made for fun photographs. Thank you, Joanna and Diana for your thoughtfulness, exuberance and kindness.

The reception was held at the delightfully antediluvian Charles River Museum of Industry.

Kaaterskill Inn Wedding – NYC – Rachael & Neal

Kaaterskill Inn Wedding – NYC – Rachael & Neal

Rachael and Neal caught a spectacular, toasty June day for their wedding.  They chose the eclectic and lovely Kaaterskill Inn, in Catskill, New York for their wedding venue. The house, the barn, the farm, were all a dream to explore. I thought on it this morning, the two things that defined their wedding for me are a freeness and lightness of spirit, and a pair of extraordinary close-knit families. It’s always an honor to photograph a wedding, but, these two, and all their people were remarkably relaxed around me, and this helped me to create just the type of photographs I like best, natural, unposed, emotional, gestural, and joyous portraits. Thank you, Rachael and Neal for trusting me, inviting me in, and being such easy, fun, and loveful people.

              

State Room Wedding – Boston

It was a great pleasure to photograph Lindsay and Joe’s State Room wedding as a 2nd with the fabulous Denny Kwan. We hopped across Boston from The Ames Hotel, to Boston Common, to the Greek Orthodox Cathedral of Boston, and finally to the spectacular Great Room at the State Room Boston. Wait for the views. They will knock your socks off. I started with Joe at the Ames. He and his groomsmen were infectious with their laughter. We made a pit stop at the bar on our way to meet Lindsay, who was back at the Ames Hotel waiting with her bridesmaids.  The two had a joyous first look in the brick plaza across from The Old State House. Then we headed to the Commons for formals. I had never been to the Greek Orthodox Cathedral. There is so much beauty inside that building from mosaics, to paintings, to stained glass. As I photographed the two during the ceremony, I watched their faces cycle from awe to, humor, to joy, and back again. Eventually we ended up at the State Room, where we had the pleasure of watching as the sun set, the lights of the harbor sparkled on, Wilson Stevens’ Beantown Band played, and Joe and Lindsay danced into the night.

Why You Don’t Need A Wedding Photographer

Why You Don’t Need

A Wedding Photographer

Welcome to my blog post about why you don’t need a wedding photographer. You are probably thinking, “Wait a minute, Paul! You are a wedding photographer. You run a wedding photography business called Hazel Photo. Why would you tell anybody why they don’t need you?” There are a few good reasons for this:

A)

Nobody needs a wedding photographer. We need food, shelter, water, healthcare, human contact. We want weddings, because we like beautiful and meaningful events that honor our love and our families!

Why you don't need a wedding photographer

B)

I truly believe there is no one right way to make family with other people. Weddings aren’t for everybody, and when people do decide to get married, there are thousands of ways to do it. I have photographed city hall weddings where I signed official documents as a lone witness. I have photographed 300 person balls at swank rooftop clubs. I have photographed thirty person farm weddings complete with tutu clad sheep. You name it! Some people are happy to have a few snapshots from friends, others hire a team of five photographers.

Why you don't need a wedding photographer

C)

I don’t want to work with anybody who doesn’t really want a wedding photographer. I want to work with people who appreciate my photographic style, and my approach to weddings. I want to work with people who are seriously excited to work with me. That’s the recipe for incredible photographs, and good feelings.

Why you don't need a wedding photographer

…So… Here are some reasons why you don’t need a wedding photographer?

  1. Everybody has a camera on their telephone, and newer smartphones are actually capable of taking some pretty good pictures! Maybe you have seen the billboards advertising the new iphone featuring a gorgeous sunset over the Golden Gate Bridge. My iphone did beautifully while my wife and I traveled in Turkey.
    Why you don't need a wedding photographer reason 3: Smartphone cameras are getting really good.

    Why you don’t need a wedding photographer reason 1: Smartphone cameras are getting really good.

  2. Sometimes the quality of the camera isn’t the most important thing. The joy on my wife’s face when we discovered this litter of puppies shines through any nitpicking issues with camera or technique. As Chase Jarvis says: “The best camera is the one that’s with you.”
    Why you don't need a wedding photographer reason 2: The best camera is the one you have with you.

    Why you don’t need a wedding photographer reason 2: The best camera is the one you have with you.

  3. The proliferation of cameras is not limited to telephones. There are watch cameras, and eyeglass cameras, and video cameras that mount to your bike helmet.

    Why you don’t need a wedding photographer reason 75: DOGGIECAM!Why you don't need a wedding photographer reason 110: Snapchat Spectacles! Why you don’t need a wedding photographer reason 110: Snapchat Spectacles!

  4. You probably also have friends and aunts and cousins who are photography enthusiasts. They will bring their fancy cameras and snap away. They may even be talented photographers!
    Why you don't need a wedding photographer reason 101: Kids love cameras.

    Why you don’t need a wedding photographer reason 101: Kids really really really love cameras.

  5. There are some awesome filters on instagram.
    Why you don't need a wedding photographer reason 33 1/3: There are lovely filters on Instagram

    Why you don’t need a wedding photographer reason 33 1/3: There are lovely filters on Instagram

    Why you don't need a wedding photographer reason 33 1/3: There are lovely? filters on Instagram.

    Why you don’t need a wedding photographer reason 33 1/3: There are lovely? filters on Instagram.

    Why you don't need a wedding photographer reason 33 1/3: You can Instagram the kid with an 80s era film point-and-shoot and score a zillion likes.

    Why you don’t need a wedding photographer reason 33 1/3: You can Instagram the kid with an 80s era film point-and-shoot and score a zillion likes.

  6. Wedding hashtags allow your guests to make photos from your wedding easy to find. There are even apps that makes an online gallery that everybody can post to for viewing and sharing.
So… given all this, are there reasons why you would still want to hire a professional wedding photographer to take pictures at your wedding?
 
Indeed. There are.

 

You might want to hire a professional wedding photographer because…

  1. You want your wedding guests to be fully present at your wedding rather than running around and taking photographs the whole time.
  2. As you walk down the aisle to meet the love of your life at the altar, you want your guests to look at your glowing beautiful face, not at a row of tiny digital screens. Consider a tech-free ceremony if you want to see your guests faces, not their phone cases.
    You might want to hire a professional wedding photographer reason 36: This is not a tech-free ceremony, but she has the most beautiful smile ever.

    You might want to hire a professional wedding photographer reason 36: This is not a tech-free ceremony, but she has the most beautiful smile ever.

  3. You know your uncle has a fancy camera, but you aren’t certain he knows how to use it perfectly, and you have never seen his portfolio, so you don’t know if his style is to your liking.
  4. The idea of seeking out an artist whose work you admire, and commissioning them to make artwork about your love, is appealing to you. Have you ever commissioned an artist to make a work of art? You may never have the chance again. Who knows, maybe you will really like it.
    You might want to hire a professional wedding photographer reason 37: Artiste at work!

    You might want to hire a professional wedding photographer reason 37: Artiste at work!

  5. You want an album, like your parents have, a solid thing that sits on the shelf, or the coffee table, that has weight to it, that always opens to memories from your wedding day, that your children, and their children will be able to look back on.
  6. You spent $$$$ on floral arrangements, and you wouldn’t mind a few artful photos of them before they wilt.
    You might want to hire a professional wedding photographer reason 38: Artful photo of a floral arrangement.

    You might want to hire a professional wedding photographer reason 38: Artful photo of a floral arrangement.

    You might want to hire a professional wedding photographer reason 39: Artful photo of a bouquet resting by Buddha.

    You might want to hire a professional wedding photographer reason 39: Artful photo of a bouquet resting by Buddha.

  7. You spent $$$$ on catering, and alcohol, and cake, and we all know where that will end up soon enough, so you want a few photos to remember what all that was about.
    You might want to hire a professional wedding photographer reason 39: Artful photo of glazed lemon trout.

    You might want to hire a professional wedding photographer reason 39: Artful photo of glazed lemon trout.

    You might want to hire a professional wedding photographer reason 39: Artful photo of gratuitous fresh figs resting among laurels.

    You might want to hire a professional wedding photographer reason 39: Artful photo of gratuitous fresh figs resting among laurels.

    You might want to hire a professional wedding photographer reason 40: Artful photo of one of the most beautiful cakes I have ever seen. Can you tell I like fresh figs?

  8. Your fancy-camera-cousin might come down with the flu, and she may not be able to provide another fancy-camera-cousin to take her place.
  9. Your fancy-camera-friend has been to “a lot” of weddings, but does not have the experience that comes with being the official photographer at dozens of weddings.
    You might want to hire a professional wedding photographer reason 47: An experienced photographer knows where to stand to get the best angle.

    You might want to hire a professional wedding photographer reason 47: An experienced photographer knows where to stand to get the best angle.

  10. You think it could be useful to have an experienced wedding photographer to help plan out the timing of photography during your wedding day so that you can be certain to make time for all of the family and bridal portraits that you want.
  11. You want to work with a photographer who is skilled at finding the most flattering angles for your face, and who is able to comfortably coach you into effortlessly beautiful poses/non-poses.
  12. Your fancy-camera-aunt might get a bit too tipsy, and forget to take a single photograph after cocktail hour ends. Your fancy-camera-friend might dance his heart out, and drop his camera. A professional will have backup equipment at the ready.
    Why you don't need a wedding photographer reason 86: You want your friends to do the worm, not spend all night behind a camera.

    You might want to hire a professional wedding photographer reason 86: You want your friends to do the worm, not spend all night behind a camera.

  13. Sure, your cousin’s camera has a pop-up flash, but you don’t want picture A. You want picture B. There are different types of flash photography.

    A.Why you don't need a wedding photographer reason 12: Flash technique matters.

    B.

    You might want to hire a professional wedding photographer reason 13: This is what strong flash technique can look like.

Seacoast Wedding New England

Seacoast Wedding New England

I had the great pleasure of joining Sarah Bastille to document Lindsay and Chris’s wedding day. The wedding ceremony was held on simple wooden benches with the Atlantic Ocean for a dramatic backdrop. A string quartet provided the processionals and recessionals from under a nearby tree. Lindsay wore a modern white gown, and Chris a deep blue suit. They were flanked by four sweet children dressed in blue and white finery. The cocktail hour was held at the stunning Fuller Gardens replete with topiary tunnels, and manicured pathways of rose bushes. The reception was held up the coast at the Seacoast Science Center under a topsail tent, with the Atlantic for a backdrop again, but this time with a majestic sailboat in the distance as well. The tablescapes were meticulously decorated in blue and white. The Veronica Martell band was excellent. Such a classic wedding!

Vogue Magazine ran a story about the wedding here!

Marthas Vineyard Wedding – Aquinnah

Marthas Vineyard Wedding – Xaviera & Dejahn

2nd for Yuri Vaysgant

This was my first venture out to Martha’s  Vineyard, and let’s just say I was impressed. What a place to get married! The details were on point at this wedding all the way through. Most of the day was overcast, but there were a few key moments when that glorious cape light pierced through the clouds. The joy was everywhere on the guests’ faces. It takes work to get a kid into formalwear, but they sure are cute, in suspenders or tulle or what have you. I think my favorite image from the day might be the one from up in the Aquinnah lighthouse during the ceremony. I stitched five verticals together, and removed an unsightly fence. I don’t always spend all that time in post, but the final result was worth it in this case. I love a sailcloth tent, and Martha’s Vineyard is the perfect spot for that elegant solution to a wedding reception. The dance party was clearly lively late into the night, and there was a sparkler send off to cap off the night. Incredible through and through.

Engagement Photos Dogs – Boston Arnold Arboretum

Engagement Photos with Dogs – Boston, Arnold Arboretum

Danny and Diana met me with their two dogs at Arnold Arboretum in Boston for their engagement photos. It was early fall, but we were able to find a few places where the fall foliage had begun to blossom (blossom? do we say that about fall foliage?) They met in San Diego, California while Danny was stationed there with the Navy, but now they have returned to Danny’s childhood home, Boston. Their energy was electric, and it was delightful to find all the hidden gems amongst the forests, and gardens, and hills of Arnold Arboretum. They were smart to bring Danny’s dad along so that there was somebody to watch after the dogs while we made some photos of the two of them alone. Their dogs were remarkably well behaved, and were even willing to sit for a portrait, just the two of them. Doggie treats were, of course, our good friends when we were attempting to get them to sit still for a portrait. The light was incredible, the temperature was temperate, and we all had a lovely little romp through the arboretum.
