The Popes whereabouts...and a new wedding!

The blog silence is over! We have been extremely busy editing images and text for our new website (which should be up in a few days!!!), designing albums for the weddings we photographed this summer, and getting ready for the B & E Fall Bridal Expo this Saturday. We're also trying to raise money for our friend Koti (about $600 has come in so far!) and for all those reasons and many more, our blog has been eerily silent. No more!


We have some new photographs to share with you. :) Back in September, we photographed Molly and Justin DuQue's wedding and put our creativity to work (all four of us b/c Molly and Justin are amazing artists too) while wandering around the Arboretum (in the rain) and then getting some classic shots inside the lobby of the Sorrento Hotel.












Here's a shot of Justin's band, the Classic Crime. One of the guys liked this shot so much that he thought Gerald should do their promo photos next time around. Anytime guys, anytime...


Let us know what you think and be sure to visit the band's website. They've got some great music!

How did you do that? Way cool!

Hi Jennifer, Thanks for stopping by! I assume that you are asking about the band photo. I took this shot with the 8mm sigma lens. All I did was stand on a chair and shoot straight down. When you are using this lens, the image comes out as a circle (on a full-frame camera) because the angle of view is so wide. I used the warp tool in photoshop in an effort to straighten out some of the lines in the photo. I love this lens--it's so much fun to play with!
