I’m so honored to have a bunch of my work featured in David Pierce’s monthly e-book Wedding Photography, A Guide to Posing. If you are a wedding photographer you might want to check out this new handy e-book which will be coming out every month. Note: I’m not selling this e-book, my work is just being featured in it. If you want to look into it further, just follow the link above. Here are a couple of screen grabs and some more information for you.

I just loved Antoinette and Jon! They were such an AWESOME couple to work with, I swear, their wedding barely felt like work to me! Their family and friends were good people with really great senses of humor!  Big props to Jon too! I love when my grooms get into the photo session and are relaxed and fun, thanks for the laughs Jon! Plus they had their wedding at one of my favorite venues as well, The Stone House, in Warren NJ. I swear, I like it there not because it’s only 15 minutes from my house too! I just dig the vibe of the place, lots of cool little areas to work in! Antoinette, Jon and all their guests came to have a good time and party on, and party on they did! Congratulations you two!

First looks!My new favorite bridal party photo!One guess as to which groomsman was watching his kids when this was taken.There were a lot of speeches given, and each one was just about the funniest I’ve ever heard!This is the risk you take when you wear suspenders guys!

I could not wait to blog Casey and Dejan’s wedding! This one was a stunner, with an awesome couple, time for me to do my thing, good light, and a fantastic location, The Wainwright House in NY! I’m pretty sure this blog post will be the new record for the amount of photos posted in it, a whopping 69! I could have easily posted a lot more, but I have to go get ready to shoot another wedding tomorrow! I’m really proud of this set, and honestly, I don’t think I need to say much more than congratulations to Casey and Dejan! Take your time with this one folks!

I love this ring shot!WHOA!This was right after Casey and Dejan saw each for the first time that day.Casey waiting for the ceremony to begin. I loved the sign. The small print says “Please Remove Your Shoes”, which Casey did, but I think it was only because her feet hurt!Met by her parent’s to escort her down the aisle.I love this shot too of Casey and Dejan walking out to greet their guests at cocktail hour. (another benefit of seeing each other beforehand for photos)Party time!I LOVE Casey’s expression behind grandma!

  • Rachael Earl - Remind me when someone invents the time machine to take you back in time 11 years to Arizona to shoot my wedding. :)

  • Todd Laffler - 11 years ago? Okie Dokie, do you want selective coloring with that?! :) I’ll hop right in my DeLorean next weekend…meet ya there!

  • jay - so much energy.

  • Casey & Dejan - WOWZA!!! Todd – these are absolutely incredible. You, Allie and Walt did an amazing job capturing so many moments from our wedding. (I think with some guidance from us, Allie was finally able to get the light right! Haha!!) You are so good at what you do, and we hope more people are as lucky as we are – to have you you photograph the most incredible day of their lives with such artistry and perfection. We can’t thank you enough…

  • Ricki - LOVED the pictures! Great selection to put out there. I’m ready for some more!

  • Jill K Imbrogno, JKFlashy Makeup Service Co. - Hello!

    These images evoke such an emotion response in me!!
    Everything from ‘wow’ she’s fun to heart-bursting, joy for this couple to where is that dance floor, I’m ready to get my dance on!
    Amazing job capturing this day!
    I love your use of light, exposure and lens flare.

  • alyda - wow! just discovered your blog. AMAZING x AWESOME x RADTASTIC work!!!!!

Keziah and Nick had the most beautiful day for their wedding! When I got to Keziah’s mom’s house, my jaw just about dropped to the ground as it was basically sitting on a beautiful farm and a really old and unique house. In fact, inside was even more interesting, it looked like a really cool antique shop with all kinds of fun stuff around! I also got to catch up with one of my past brides too. I had photographed Nick’s brother, Ian’s wedding almost 2 years go, so it was great to see Kelly and Ian again! As it turns out, the MVD (Most Valuable Dancer) at Kelly and Ian’s wedding was ALSO the MVD at Keziah and Nick’s wedding as well! This guy is a real spark plug. I think you’ll figure out who he is as you look at the reception photos! Keziah and Nick had a wonderful day and it was my pleasure to photograph it. Congratulations you two!

The ceremony coverage was a bit unfortunate, as we found out on the spot that we weren’t allowed any further than the last row of pews!Yep! MVD!Take a long look at this photograph and try to really see everyone in it. This is not done in post-production, it is a single photograph as seen at the time of capture.

  • Cara Carlson - Awesome job! I felt like I was part of the party. LOVE the MVD shot!

  • Megan - Love them all! Been waiting for these to be posted and am definitely not disappointed! Beautiful KC!!

  • Keziah & Nick - OMG OMG! Todd…thank you sooooooo much! These photos are incredible..and agreed on the MVD! Love it!

  • KrisD Mauga - Todd~ You are killig me with talent! Luv it what a fabulous wedding! Happy Thanksgiving!

  • Fer Juaristi - amazing wedding!, see you in Mystic.

  • Hilary Vinas - Congratulations! Keziah you look beautiful and you both look so happy. I love your pictures!

  • Wendy - Thank you for sharing with me Keziah…..those are amazing photos and it was a wonderful day…..xo
    Two of my favs…….the happy couple on the swing and the lovely bride in front of the red barn…Fabulous work!!

  • Kelly & Ian - Todd – You did an AMAZING job as usual! It was a beautiful wedding and you captured it perfectly! It was great to see you too!

  • Todd Laffler - Thanks so much everyone! :)

  • nadya - love them all, the ceremony ones came out great regardless of the restriction! Question, when you shoot the speeches, the light coming from behind is that something you setup or is that flash or ?? thanks!!

  • Harry Who - Love your style, Todd. What an amazing coverage of the Wedding. Felt it in my tummy. Great stuffs.

  • todd hunter mcgaw - dude.. you are off the chart! very slick work & you really know your light.. i’m wearing 11 hats & I’m taking them all off to you! LOVE.IT.
