Sarah and Ken's Wedding



When I was a talent agent Sarah Schroeder was my assistant. She was the best assistant I ever had and I was so honored when she asked me to shoot her wedding.

The ceremony and reception took place at Duke's Restaurant in Malibu and it was such a fun event to attend and to photograph. My old associate Kevin Turner and I are so proud of her and all of her accomplishments. She is currently the Director of Alumni Relations and Development, West Coast for her alma mater Columbia College Chicago. Ken also graduated from Columbia College Chicago but they actually did not meet and start dating until they both moved out to Los Angeles almost six years ago.

The only photos I have back from the lab are the creative ones. These images were shot with infrared film and the last two were shot with a toy camera called the Holga and some quasi-infrared film from Rollei. Thank goodness for Rollei since Ilford has stopped producing their version of this film (Ilford SFX 200, which is rumored to return to the film market).

The light leaks on the last image are part of the fun and creativity you can have with a Holga.

Sarah is being interviewed today by a online radio program called "Your Dream Wedding" on Big Media USA

As a side note, I have been waiting for the Pixtivity program to come out for about a year and it was finally released. The above "Photo Wall" as they call it was created by this program and I absolutely love all of the different things it can do. Click your mouse over any of the images from the wall to get the full image. I will continue to be used by me on this blog when sharing photographs from various events with you.
