Featured Blog – Brooklyn Wedding by Kristin Chalmers Photography

The best part about blogging with wonderful photographers around the country is that they become friends. This was the first blog that Kristin and I blogged together, and I actually went to her house to go through the images and really get her take on the day. With 3 shooters and thousands of beautiful images, we decided to break it up into two blog posts. The bride and groom were artists and performers living in Brooklyn, NY and the details were off-the-hook! Visit part 1 and part 2 to see more of the wonderful way Kristin captured this day. I still look back on these two blogs and remember where we started, and how far we both have come – as business people and as artists.  Thank you Kristin for trusting me to blog with you!

“When February came, I was crazy nervous. This was the biggest wedding I had ever done, not in size per se, but in importance to me. They could have chosen anyone to shoot this wedding but they took a chance on me and I didn’t want to let them down.”

Brooklyn’s Finest – Part 2 – The Reception at Grand Prospect Hall

Favorite Excerpt:

“In the middle of the evening Angie decided it was time for a wardrobe change.  Her party dress was designed and created by Garo Sparo and she worked that dress, let me tell you!  Her petticoats had a life of their own! She and Brian danced throughout the night with all of their guests, only stopping to take moments to cuddle with one another. We only had a short time for formal portraits of the couple alone once Angie changed. Luckily the Grand Prospect Hall provided the perfect backdrop, including a room full of amazing artwork waiting to be hung, and a phone booth that turned out to be the perfect prop. We banged those babies out, and they are some of my favorite photographs ever.”
