From NJ to California to NYC

Three weddings, two coasts and lots of airports and rest stops. It's been a crazy month for weddings. I'm staying put for the fall so I should be posts lots of great footage in the near future. As always, I appreciate all feedback.

Calli + Seth

Appleford estate is chock full of great spots for photos and a beautiful setup for an outdoor wedding. Calli and Seth had a beautiful day and are a fun and gracious couple.

Dollface Studios handled photography brilliantly. You can see some of their pics on their site (link on the bar to the right). Enjoy the video!

Tough Week

Every weekend I have a wedding scheduled I drop off a suit at the cleaners not two blocks from my home. At first he'd see the suit and ask if I was heading to a wedding or a funneral. I'd answer, a wedding, without exception, since I've been to 200 weddings or so in the last three years. After a while he'd just ask where the wedding was.

This week however, when I pick up my suit, I will wear it for my father's funeral. After a yearlong struggle with renal cancer, my father passed last Wednesday in Seattle. I spent the better part of the last week in Alaska and Washington, spending as much time with him as possible. This week is the impossibley daunting task of celebrating his life without him.

I had planned to finish off all my June and July weddings prior to leaving for California on the 17th of this month to for more filming and more weddings. Needless to say is I have fallen a few weeks behind. Bear with me. I'll try to have everyone's highlight video up first so you have some to view and share.
