The cutest little chickens in the world just so happen to also be my kids! My wife, Susan, deserves ALL the credit for these chicken costumes! She did an AMAZING job with these two knuckleheads! We had a great time trick-or-treating with Zoe and Emerson’s neighborhood “gang”! Zoe’s costume turned quite a few heads too!

  • Keri Zambelli - Todd your wife did an amazing job on Zoe’s costume! So adorable and clever! I love her feet! Hoped she enjoyed her Halloween!

  • susan kargman siegel - adorable pics-adorable costumes (kudos to Susan) adorable kids!!!! Thanks for the fun distractions while we are awaiting Callie and Nate’s pics to come up.

    Warm regards Susan

  • Georgi Anastasov - hahah, awesome!!!

  • Todd Laffler - Thanks everyone, we had a blast!

    Susan, I am working on Callie’s blog post now, it should be up in a few days, sorry for the wait! :(

  • Ben Stopforth - Great photos Todd and great costumes Susan, hope you are all well.
    Lots of Love Ben, Ann Marie and Eva.

  • Ben Stopforth - ps – I love Emerson’s converse!

  • Aunt Norma & Uncle R - Ha Ha Ha Ha
    I can’t believe how cute they look. The look on Emerson’s face says it all. He doesn’t have to speak. Best costumes since “Tiger Lil”.

  • Maggie McGill - Amazing costumes, I LOVE the Chucks!!! Can’t wait to see you in a few weeks :o)

  • Naqib/Qippy - Hey Todd…Man Zoe & Emerson have really grown up sooooo quickly..always nice to come back here to be inspired…anyway if you have and iPhone4™ we should Facetime™ sometime hahah ;)

  • Todd Laffler - Thanks again everyone!

    Naqib, yeah, I’ve found that the more we feed them, the more they just keep growing! :) No iPhone4 for me, but who knows, I may be due, as my current iPhone has a crack on the back of it, so we’ll see! :)

  • Tumbleweed Photography Studio - What creative ideas for kids costumes! They photographed wonderfully especially with the fall color background.

Ariele and Peter had an AMAZING wedding at one of my favorite venues to work at, The Crossed Keys Inn! The weather couldn’t have been more gorgeous and both Ariele and Peter looked incredible to boot. I knew instantly during their “first looks” that these two were MADLY in love! You can always tell when a couple is truly, truly in love when you don’t have to ever ask the couple to kiss because they just can’t help doing it throughout the day on their own! A lot of wedding photographers will ask the couple to stop as they are walking up the aisle together, and kiss. I’m sure I’ve done it a few times myself, but I hate doing it. Well, Ariele and Peter were just so in love with each other that it wasn’t necessary to ask them to “look” like they were madly love, they just are! I  love when I see this! It was an emotional filled day with lots of tears, laughter, dancing, and even some biting! Congratulations you two, it was my honor to photograph your wedding!

Their 1st looks!Ariele bites….… and Peter bites back!The bridal party waiting for the ceremony to begin.

  • jay - Amazing Todd!

  • Ariele - TODD! AMAZING! Oh my gosh. They are so amazing. Thank YOU for being part of our day and capturing it so beautifully! Amazing!

  • ryan - again i want to comment, but what haven’t i said? your work is so versatile. in this set you have captured the best candid images with so much emotion, but this set also has posed couple images that are transcendent from photography as art to true fine art (do you know what i’m trying to say?) simply, fabulous work.

  • JOEY & PETE - Never have I seen such artwork in photography. Beautiful bride, love stuck groom, such happiness it radiates from the photos. You rock Todd.

  • nadya - Ugh so beautiful! Your an amazing photographer!!

  • Todd Laffler - Aaawww shucks! Thanks everyone! :)

  • Katherine Rodriguez - Todd! As usual you captured the true essence of the couple and their day as well as the beauty of Crossed Keys.

    Its always a pleasure working with you and we look forward to seeing you next season!

    Best,
    Katherine

  • Rodrigo Vargas - Hey Todd… I haven’t left a comment for a while but I still visit your site all the time. Not sure if I said this last time, but it was a shame I couldn’t make it to the States earlier this year. Would still love to meet up! Maybe next time. Oh, and back to the comment… as usual, absolutely amazing! :)

  • Santa Barbara Wedding Photography - Pics are awesome no doubt in saying and you are looking outstanding..

  • Mary Jo - These photos are so lovely. My favorite is the one with the tear on Ariele’s face. How did you manage to capture that? And I love the shoes on my red Chinese chest. Gorgeous!

    Beautiful work. Really brings back the whole wonderful day. Thanks.

  • Tracy - Wow, these images are AMAZING! You clearly bust your butt to get the most creative, wonderful shots. Your enthusiasm is obvious. I can’t wait to see you speak at Mystic!

  • Tammy - WOW! Extraordinary photo! I showed this picture of Antoinette and Jon to my students, and they thought it was the cover of a magazine!

  • Erin - Awww Mr. and Mrs. Ritter – that picture is amazing!!! I cannot wait to see all of them!

  • Stepherz - That picture of Matt and Sammy…it’s just so magical. It makes me feel like I just finished reading a story about an enchanted forest where a prince and princess fell in love, and I’m looking at their happily ever after photo at the end of the book. Very, very well done!
