Fabiola + Abasi

I’m going to level with you guys. When I first met Fabiola and Abasi, I had some concerns that Abasi might be one of those grooms who’s just “along for the ride” and totally disinterested in the photography. Now, when I meet with prospective clients, the “interview” sort of goes both ways. I want to make sure I am dealing with an enthusiastic couple who is not afraid of a little PDA, and that we are all a good fit. I figured Abasi might have been tired from a long day of work, a long drive over to meet with me, maybe just a bad day, whatever, so I gave him the benefit of the doubt. I’m SO glad I did, Abasi was like a spark of raw energy and emotion on their wedding day, and just SUCH a pleasure to work with. Just as Fabiola was too of course! To be honest with you, after leaving their wedding, I was kind of scratching my head and thinking, “did that really just happen!?” Wonderful people (check) amazing locations (check) great light (check) time given for me to do my thing (check and mark!) Congratulations Fabiola and Abasi! Oh, and props to Sojourner and her team from Erganic Design for their hard work throughout the day and converting the Metropolitan Pavilion into an amazing space!

Izabela + Lee | Teasers

A few shots from Izabela and Lee’s wedding this past Friday. We had some small, but crazy thunderstorms hanging about. The first shot is pretty much straight out of the camera. Yep, the sky was THAT ominous behind them, yet the sun was shining on them!

Naqib/Qippy - Nice real nice..especially the big tree shot…btw if you have the time do cek out my latest blog post :)

Kelly + Dennis

I met up with Kelly and Dennis for their e-session at Liberty State Park, which always a great place to shoot. I had a lot of fun photographing these two. Kelly has a bit of an infectious laugh too, although at first I thought she might be hyper ventilating! I’m really looking forward to photographing their wedding in several weeks! See you guys then!

undefinedundefinedundefinedundefinedundefinedundefinedundefinedundefinedundefinedundefinedundefinedundefined

Kelly - You rock Todd!! These are AMAZING! You made me laugh with your ha ha has and woody woodpecker laughs! We can’t wait to see the rest and are SO excited for you to shoot our wedding!!

Angela Mum Laffler - Very interesting photos, you find the best locations and your couples seem so natural as if they are not even aware they are being photographed! Well done son!!!!!

Naqib/Qippy - Great shoot Todd..Btw I’m trying to understand the second pic with the Statue of Liberty..what is that thing?

Marian Cristea - Beautiful locations, beautiful photos, beautiful lovers! But, above all, I love your mother because she support you and encourage you! Bravo and as many achievements! Please forgive my poor English!

Todd Laffler - Thanks Kelly!!! We’ll do it all over again in a few weeks!
Thanks Mum! Glad to hear your return trip over the pond went without incident!
Naqib, thanks man! That is actually a kite that a kid was flying just over the hill there.
Thanks Marian, very sweet!

Naqib/Qippy - Wow thats some real thick kite line? ahah…anyway it’s nice to see your trademark color style still blossoming :) …Amazing!

Alyssa + Patrick | Teasers

Just two of my favorite shots from Alyssa and Patrick’s wedding! The first one is pretty much straight out of camera. The white dots are rain drops and the flare is from a flash. This was in fact shot in the parking lot, and not on the gamma quadrant of the milky way! The second shot was done inside a silo. Thanks for trusting me guys!

Arnau Dalmases - Wow!!!!! Amazing shot the firs one…. well, both of them! Congrats!

nadya - wow that first shot is crazy , looks like the milkyway lol , awesome second shot!

penny pray - I had the pleasure of being at Alyssa’s wedding and these 2 “teaser” shots are amazing !! You always tell a bride that rain on her wedding day is good luck, but you never think that it makes for magical photos ! Awesome :) :):)

Yorkshire Wedding Photographers - Holden and Jones - I Love this little teaser, the thought of persuading a UK bridal couple to go into a silo for their shoot is almost unimaginable.

Andrea + Peter

I had such a great time photographing Andrea + Peter’s wedding at Tappan Hill Mansion in N.Y.! You may recall that the last wedding I blogged was also shot at Tappan Hill, but the night before, which was also coincidentally my first time there! Unfortunately Andrea and Peter didn’t get quite as nice a day, but honestly though, it doesn’t even matter in the least when you have an awesome couple like Andrea + Peter. And MAN, Andrea sure is photogenic! Everyone was in such great spirits throughout the day, and the rain did eventually subside for some photos outside too! Thanks for letting me join the fun guys! Congratulations Andrea and Peter!

undefinedundefinedundefinedundefinedundefinedundefinedundefinedundefinedundefinedundefinedundefinedundefinedundefinedundefinedundefinedundefinedI lost control of this group!undefinedundefinedundefinedundefinedundefinedundefinedundefinedundefinedundefinedundefinedundefinedundefinedundefinedundefinedundefinedundefinedundefinedundefinedundefinedundefinedA few from my “tall man” series throughout the night!undefinedundefinedundefinedundefinedundefinedundefinedundefinedundefinedundefinedundefinedundefined

Olivia Brown - Yeah! I was right. You ARE an amazing photog. Aces, my friend!

jay - #9 and #12 are my favorites … timeless and masterpieces

Marian Cristea - Just brilliant ideas! Every picture tells a story. This should be the goal of every wedding photographer and not only … I regularly follow you. Congratulations!

Christopher David - Absolutely killer images Todd!

Krissy - Todd… Still left speechless. :)

Natan - Absolutely great post, quality, originality, fresh…
Congrats from Spain!!

Ryan Brenizer - As ever, your creativity and technical precision is out of this world.

nadya - awesome fun images! love the bridal party out of control one hahaha! Question what is your #1 go to lens at weddings? thanks :)

Tall - I laughed. I cried. I wasn’t even there. Slick job nailing the focus on the tall men series! Well done!

Todd Laffler - Thanks so much everyone!!!

Nadya, I’d have to say my 70-200, and my 24mm prime are go to’s. And for the reception I use my 16-35mm a lot.

Andrea - LOVE it Todd!!! You captured some amazing and special moments. How do you manage to be everywhere at once!?

I couldn’t have asked for more. You were so easy to work with, in fact you made it FUN, and I am so happy to have had you there to photograph our day not only with your insane artistry but also with your instinct for putting together a beautiful story with all emotions attached.

Thank you!

Susie - These were the most amazing photos — especially from a wedding– that I hav ever seen. It puts the photo of the happy couple peeking inside the limo to shame!
These photos are clever, intimate, joyful, touching– full of color and life. I came home from the wedding awestruck, and even more now! Fantastic!

Rosemary Spellacy - This was one of the most beautiful weddings I have ever attended. These pictures show how perfect the event was. Thanks for sharing them!!!!

Alex - Some of the best work I’ve seen in a long time. Consider yourself bookmarked. ;0)

Kathleen H - An amazingly beautiful wedding captured by an incredible photographer…the photos are so creative! They completely express the emotion and love surrounding Peter and Andrea on their special day. The photos are a treasure to have for many years to come!

Tracy - These are AMAZING photos. I have been following your work for some time now (even tried to get you for my wedding last year!) and this wedding is my absolute favorite – I got goosebumps looking at them! Absolutely amazing – well done!

Brian Kraft - Insane in the membrane.
