I just can’t get over what an incredible year 2008 was! I had 41 awesome couples who let me share their big days with them. A GINORMOUS THANK YOU to each and every one of you! It was my absolute pleasure to capture your day of days, and I feel truly honored you chose me to do so! I put together a slide show using some of my favorite wedding images taken in 2008. It’s a little long though, so grab a nice cup of coffee, sit back in your chair, relax, and enjoy the show. Thanks again to all of my great couples, and a huge congratulations to you! Without further ado, I present to you all, The 2008 Best of Weddings slide show.

I decided to throw a quick slide show together using only detail shots I had taken in 2008. It’s mostly rings, a few dresses, a splash of shoes, and a peppering of flowers. Enjoy!

I just got back from attending Mystic 4 in Connecticut. Mystic 4 is a wedding photographer’s get together (about 250 of us) with some awesome speakers giving us a glimpse into their work and offering little gems of wisdom. Many thanks to Walter Van Dusen for putting this together and running such a great event like this. I’m really looking forward to Mystic 5 with Jerry Ghionis!

Here’s a shot of my good friend, and fellow photographer, Bob LoRusso, finding the light in Mystic during the snow storm!

Today’s forecast: SNOW! Well, it did snow, but that did not stop all the fired up party goers from coming out to help AJ celebrate his Bar Mitzvah! The reception was held at Space Odyssey USA in Englewood NJ. The attention to every detail was amazing! The space was awesome for both kids and adults, and everyone had a blast! AJ’s dad even sang a little tribute to AJ as well, very funny! Congratulations AJ!

I loved how the snow coming down kind of looked like the solar system behind the Space Odyssey sign.

And here’s AJ!

Check out this mini bowling alley!

AJ’s little brother Garrett tearing it up in the arcade.

Here’s AJ while his dad sings to him.

Two words: Bad Boy!

Everyone watching the slide show montage of AJ.

I love this shot taken earlier in the day at the Temple of AJ with his Grandfather.

  • Anonymous - wow!!!! It looks great!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Nice pictures!!!

  • Jamie Kline - These pics from AJ’s party are fabulous!!!!

  • Jennifer Smutek - Such great shots. You really know how to light a room!

  • Claudio - I’m always checking your work…Excellent.
    One question…Do You overexpose some of your pics, or modify them with software to look brigther?

  • Todd - Thanks everyone! Claudio, no I don’t overexpose, I try to expose as best I can on the spot, and if necessary will make adjustments to the RAW file in Adobe Light Room.

  • Derryn - I really enjoy looking at these pictures. What camera do you use? is it digital or film. I think your colours are so wonderful and vibrant. WELL DONE! you’re doing a great job!
