What NOT to do on your Wedding Night.

post written on 23 Mar 09 in Family, personal, Videos, Weddings


Although this took place over 6 years ago, I thought it would be relevent today, as advice on what NOT to do on your wedding night.

I have been known, as a photographer, for one of my signature shots which is jumping on the bed at the end of the night, as this example to the left.

So when Alison and I got married in 2003, I figured why not be the subject in the “jumping on the bed” shot.

You will see I forget to check one thing when you watch the video below….

Ever After Bridal Fashion Shoot

post written on 13 Mar 09 in Fashion, Videos, Weddings

This is from a recent shoot we did for Camille Thiry Russler at Ever After Miami. I have shot their advertising for several years, they are so much fun to work with. We were using the dresses from the movie Sex in the City, which in turn Ever After were using for an event that evening in their showroom .Video was shot by our own Jason Jerusalem on the new 5D Mark II. Same with the images I shot that are in the film.
