Chateau Cocomar Wedding – Vi and Ken

When I got a message from Paris, France that Vi and Ken would like me to photograph their wedding at Chateau Cocomar I was thrilled. We had several phone conversations and met over the Christmas holidays. They wanted me to create some art pieces for them and so I’ve painted a few images for them to highlight their perfect union and fabulous wedding.

Chateau Cocomar is a grand villa and a stunning location to have a wedding. Vi & Ken’s wedding was filled with many friends and family and it was truly a beautiful celebration. Enjoy this little sneak peek!

Chateau Cocomar painted freestyle.



Agave Road Night Wedding with Keri & Blake

The amazing night wedding at Agave Road in Katy, Texas. We love photographing weddings at night. While it presents a host of challenges as a photographer to not make the images look “flashy” and to capture the ambient light of the scene, it is something we absolutely love to do. When Toni (the bride’s mom) Keri (the bride) and Blake (the groom) and I met for the first time, I was over the moon to capture their New Years Eve Wedding. The wedding would begin well after sunset and all the pre-wedding photographs would be taken after dark. This would create an amazing look with the stunning backdrop of Agave Road.

It was an amazing celebration of love and joy of these two families. We are so honored to be the chosen photographer for this stunning wedding. Enjoy!

Grand Imaging Award TOP 10 & KODAK ELITE NOMINEE

Professional Photographers of America each year has a series of Photographic Print Competitions. These competitions are judged by training judges and determine the images which are worthy of Merit and Loan. To see more about his visit my blog post on Print Competition Here.

Print competition is the single most challenging thing I do in my career and the ONE THING which continues to make me a better photographer for all of my clients.

With just a couple of exceptions, all of the images I enter are client images.

In 2016 I was honored with the Kodak Gallery Award and That image is now up for the Kodak Elite Award which will be judged at Imaging USA In San Antonio next week.

HEAVEN SENT


In addition, when an image receives the prestigious designation of LOAN, it is then judged one more time for the GRAND IMAGING AWARDS (GIA). This is the best of the best and in the photography world. it’s like being nominated for an Academy Award.

For any competitor, the dream of being nominated for a GIA is the creme-da-la-creme. The best of the best of the best.

I am honored that I have been nominated for 2 GIA’s this year in the Wedding Catagory. I cannot explain how excited I am about this! Both of these images were created for clients and I am over the moon that my client work is being recognized at such a high level.
