Chad and Bess

I first met Chad during our time in the Boy Scouts; while we haven't kept in close contact after we both earned the Rank of Eagle Scout, we have periodically kept up with each other's lives after Troop 146 - my journey into photography, and his time at Virginia Military Institute.  When Chad and Bess became engaged, Chad almost immediately contacted me to be their wedding photographer - I was more than delighted! Chad and Bess were married on July 5th, 2013 in Alexandria, Virginia in the company of family, friends, and classmates.  After a Catholic wedding ceremony, the couple, joined by loved ones, danced the Summer night away, celebrating the day "Chad and Bess love each other the least" - the best is yet to come!  "He's just Chad, and she's just Bess."

Congratulations to both of you - I wish you both the very best life has to offer!

All of Chad and Bess' wedding photos may be viewed and prints purchased here.

Final Notes:  Many of these photos were processed using VSCO's new Film 04: Slide - I think it's the best version they've released to date!  My favorite so far is the Fuji Astia 100F setting for portraits, but I also found that Fuji Velvia 100 works wonderfully on outdoor photos (so long as you boost color temperature) - this isn't shocking in the least, because these were the intended purposes of both these respective films.  And finally, this is the first blog I have posted which is compatible with HiDPI displays, such as the Apple Retina Display.  Please email me if there are any problems.


Shout out to my awesome assistant, Eddie Kyle!  I thought this was an awesome shot of him photographing the Wedding Mass :-D
