Nikki + Rob | New Orleans Wedding

I am not sure whether Nikki asked me to photograph her wedding or just told me to.

Either way, I was extremely honored to be asked(or told )!!

Nikki + Rob’s wedding was absolutely phenomenal.

The whole day had this electricity about it that’s tough to put into words, so I won’t try to.

I went a bit overboard with this blog post but hey, you only get to blog about your ‘boss’s’ wedding once!

Don’t forget to check out Carla, Jane and Amanda’s view of the wedding day!

Video takes a bit longer than photos, but be sure to check out Jim Alteri from Vintage Cinema too!

The ‘Choos’!

Jane + Amanda!

The First look

Yea, Nikki isn’t exactly in focus.  But it’s an expression like this that I can’t pass up

the entourage

the whole time we were shooting, this guy was watching

a little practice. . . 

The ceremony begins!

The street where it all begins

The parade starts!

Gorgeous images in the street – I love how the strangers are just totally non-plussed by the whole set up. It makes it seem that much more natural!

I am a wedding planner from Orange County, CA and I am helping my dad plan a surprise vow renewal for my mom this November. He is taking her to the French Quarter since it’s her favorite place and it’s their 25th.

I love that in this blog your boss got married on the streets of the French Quarter. My mom would be head over heels if we could make that happen and have it all be a surprise.

I was wondering how you were able to do that and block off the streets?

Could you send me a contact of who to call or the procedure of how you guys got this done? It’s amazing and perfect for my parents renewal :)

The Monday Herd | Elected defiance

“Any fool can make a rule, and any fool will mind it”

-Henry David Thoreau-

When is the last time you stepped back and asked yourself, ‘why am I doing whatever I am doing, this way?’  Is it because someone showed you it that way, or is there some rule you are following, that you’ve always followed without asking yourself, why?

When is the last you broke a rule?  Not just to break it, but break it because you didn’t agree with it.

Sure there could be sound reasoning behind it, but that doesn’t mean you need to follow it.  What happened to pushing the envelope?  Testing the waters.  Jumping without looking.

Some aspects of photography I feel have become more of a science than an art.  The experimentation has fallen to the way side to be replaced by specific formulas, light meters and an expectation that you follow the rules.  The rules of thirds, the golden ratio, balance in your image, highlights aren’t blown out, darks are too dark; a nice balanced histogram.

What happened to the joy of picking up a camera and experimenting?  Jumping a fence to see what’s on the other side, sneaking into an abandoned building with a camera, a flash and an inclination of what might look cool.

Who cares if it doesn’t turn out perfect?  Who cares if what you photograph offends someone?

The goal of appeasing everyone is an illusion of grandeur. How about the goal of appeasing yourself?

Doing what you want to do.

Stu, Tech and I jumped a fence with a camera, a  flash, and the idea of doing what we wanted to do.

These images are not perfect, technically or otherwise, they might offend you, but it’s what I wanted to do.

It’s what I though would be cool.

Go out and do something you want to do this week.  Try something new.  Break a rule.

Have a rad Monday.

I love these!! And I am guilty of the balanced histogram :)

Ty - April 9, 2012 - 10:41 am

Thanks Liz, I really appreciate the comments!! I am not saying that a balanced histogram is bad, just don’t be afraid to push it once in a while!

Terri (Stu's friend) - April 9, 2012 - 12:51 pm

Good stuff. I know nothing about photography, only what looks good to me and makes me think about the subjects, their thoughts in the moment, why they’re there, what they did before, and what they will do next. Personally, I like the lighting. It adds a little mystery ;-).

Krista - April 9, 2012 - 1:20 pm

You and Stu should stop breaking the law :) Just kidding. Great pics T. Hope all is well Love, Krista
