You are correct. Weddings are among the many, many genres I cover in my Art Factory adventures since I’ve been there since 2016. At that time there were no weddings held there. Hard to believe it based on what happens every weekend now.
It’s been a pleasure meeting with wedding couples and working with them to create memorable and artistic images to last a lifetime.
This is some of the work I’ve done there through my blog. There will be more blogging in 2022.
There is also a print version of this available for viewing at The Art Factory during your visit starting in March 2022.
I haven’t blogged a wedding in a looooooong time. It has been the busiest year for weddings that I’ve experienced. I’ll give you one guess why!
My homebase (Art Factory Studios in Paterson, New Jersey) was the setting for Staci and Mickey’s wedding. It couldn’t have been more fun to document. Everything on the timeline was spaced out to allow for maximum creativity and total enjoyment of the day.
I am excited to share this recap blog of the shots we got that day!
Side note: Go see the new “West Side Story” in theaters. Most of the film was shot in Paterson and many scenes at Art Factory Studios itself.
Because of the ongoing (hopefully slowing?) pandemic here in America a lot about life has changed. For Leiah’s 16th birthday the traditional big party wasn’t going to be possible so she received a full-on modeling session from her parents.
Vertical Freedom is a dance studio located in South Plainfield, New Jersey and offers classes in pole fitness, aerial yoga, yoga, kids aerial yoga, adult ballet, vertical barre, pole-ates and cardio & core.
We got some excellent shots of the classes in action using a 24mm tilt-shift and 15mm lenses in combination with MagMod lighting that I hung from the ceiling with blue gels.
Take a look at some of the highlights and remember to visit their web site to get more information and sign-up for classes.
Many things were different about photographing weddings this year. Mainly the lack of people at weddings and/or no wedding at all…just the couple. Luckily all of the couples I work with have been flexible in still making things happen in this alternate universe called 2020.
Jess and Mike joined us for a trip around Edison, NJ to do an extended portrait session. We found an exceptional location in Roosevelt Park (near Menlo Park Mall) and made the most of it.
Special thanks to David Alonso for second shooting this with me. He’s the nicest guy around!
It’s been a long time since I’ve posted a blog entry. I’m happy to say that even though March -early summer 2020 was a bit slow it has been quite busy since then. I’m taking the opportunity now to post some shoots that have been in “draft mode” for quite a while.
I think we got some amazing shots with Montana. The thumbnail image for this shoot was toward the end as it began to snow. It was perfectly clear up until the last 30 minutes of shooting! Amazing.
The Hamilton Cafe is off to a strong start with a tasty menu that I got to photograph for their official launch. It is located in the Mercado on the ground flood of the Art Factory located at 70 Spruce Street, Paterson, NJ 07501.
All Flashpoint/Godox lighting was used with the MagBox w/ focus diffuser and full blue gel, full CTO gels and a Paul C. Buff beauty dish (gridded and diffused).
