Just a quick teaser shot from Saturday’s wedding at Mallard Island, of Magick and Chris…stay tuned!

  • Lee - You’re such a tease. This photo is beyond amazing…I love it. The reflections and the sky look like perfection.

  • quelyn - Ohhhh, awesome picture, I can’t wait to see all of these :D

  • Maureen Cassidy Photography - you are the coolest!!!!!!!!! holy **** what a photo!
    your clients must be so happy!
    so awesome!
    was that really one shot? im guessing no, but i still have not tried to shoot at night….
    awesome photograph!

  • Georgi Anastasov - Daamn, Todd, you are so good:)))

  • ChristopherDavid - So, is it me or does the house look like it is smiling at you? Magick and Chris are going to be psyched to have this picture of them. Killer work bro!

  • Magick - Todd- Greetings from St. Lucia :) Holy Crap! This is amazing!!!! I love the way everything reflects off the water. It was hard to stand here getting eaten by bugs, but it was definitely worth this shot. Thank you for everything you are such an amazing person and photographer. We had a BLAST!!!

  • Todd Laffler - Thanks everyone! :)
    Magick, thank you SO much for braving the gnats for me, it was totally worth it! I’ll have some more photos up very soon! Have fun in St. Lucia!!!!

  • Mariclaire Smith - I was one of the bridesmaids in Magick and Chris’ wedding. The pictures are GORGEOUS!!! So happy for Magick and Chris and so happy to have been a part of their beautiful day! =)

…well sort of! Sometimes it looks like he’s going to start crawling and then he just starts rocking back and forth on his hands and knees. Then, sometimes he looks like he’s just doing push ups! (see photo on the left) He’s almost 7 months now, and I think he’s actually getting close to getting the hang of it. Two things are for certain though, he has oodles of determination, and when he finally learns to crawl, life as we know it will change DRASTICALLY! This guy will be into everything! I grabbed these shots this morning as he was getting in some tummy time before breakfast.

Postscript: Emerson started “big boy” crawling the day after I posted this! Watch out!

  • Lee - he is too cute, these pictures just make me smile. I think he is better at doing push ups than I am.

  • Bernie - OMG
    Too Cute.

  • Cara Carlson - Wow, he has such experience in his eyes. And “old soul” I think. My little one is just learning to stand. Isn’t it amazing how quickly they grow and learn?

So, this behind the scenes installment is slightly different in that it’s not a photo of me actually shooting, but instead setting up a shot. This is one of my favorite e-session photos, and it comes from Kalpana and Jim’s session. These guys were so awesome and up for anything! The first two photos were taken by my friend Naqib, thanks buddy! And the last shot is the final image, shot by me.

  • KrisD Mauga - Hilarious!!!! Love it as always!!! Soon, I shall stalk and find you in NY to shoot along side!

  • Naqib/Qippy - I like this hands on post..we all always yearn to know how a real pro does it..and fortunately enough now we know..thanks Todd for the shoutout! Great stuff!

  • knot - nice shot love it!! especially the guy’s face. love u work

  • justinelement - you did it again!

  • harrison - Hahah, love it!!! How fun.

  • Kay - I heart you Todd!

  • Todd Laffler - Thanks everyone! :)

  • quelyn - OHhhhhh that is frickin cool

  • Jennifer Parlanti - LoVe iT!!

I met up with the dynamic duo of Erin and Rick at their apartment in Philadelphia. It was freakishly hot and humid for May 2nd, let me tell you! But Erin and Rick never complained and were full of good cheer, albeit sweaty cheer, cheer nonetheless! Yes, if you were counting, I used the word “cheer” 3 times in the last sentence! Anyway, we had a blast roaming around their neighborhood. And when I found out that Erin used to be involved with gymnastics, I used that to my full advantage! Rick’s talent was eating “hoagies” which proved to be much less useful!!! Thanks for a fun day out guys, I can’t wait to shoot your wedding in a few months!

Just look at the extension on Erin’s kick!See if you can guess when Erin and Rick’s wedding is? Yep, 7-24!I just couldn’t resist!!!!!!And the last shot of our session was taken right outside Erin and Rick’s favorite deli, which is located across the street from their apartment.

  • Jillian Longpre - Wow, great job with these pix! The creativity used is super impressive! I especially love the last one where you put the flash behind them.

  • Rachael Earl - Holy flexibility, Batman! :)

  • Erin - Hi, Todd! I love the pictures! I didn’t even realize that garage had 724 on it when we took that shot. Thank you for the wonderful pics!

  • Tony - That’s the closet you’ve been to a skateboard in a long time . . .

  • Lisa Longpre - These are fantastic… So innovative. beautiful and meaningful settings… Really caught the “real” Erin and Rick. Absolutely the best engagement pics I’ve ever seen

  • Kay - So great Todd!!! They’re so filled with life and laughter, I just really love them! Did you notice that random travelocity knome is one of the pics?

  • Amanda Jensen - These are so amazing! Erin and Rick are two of my favorite people and you captured them wonderfully. I love that Erin got to show off her gymnastics/judo skills. :) These are definitely the most creative and beautiful set of engagement photos I have seen. Fantastic job!!

  • Naqib/Qippy - Hey Todd! As always it’s a fantastic shoot…Oh yeah! did you get my SMS I sent you recently? Take care!

  • nadya - love this session! the colors are awesome. Wow cant wait to see what type of tumbling yuo can get her to do in her wedding dress LOL. Awesome e-session ^.^

  • Corey Sewell - All of these are beautiful and so fun! Love the kapow/blammo shot!!

  • Todd Laffler - Thanks so much everyone!
    And Kay, yes I did see the travelocity gnome in that shot! Good eye!
