A Rainy Day In Key West

I was going through some wedding photos from last year to put up on my new website and I came across this one. Colleen and I were waiting for the wedding couple to arrive, and the weather was looking a little threatening. Suddenly, the Key West sun came blasting through the clouds and this beautiful rainbow appeared right in front of us. The couple arrived right then to enjoy the sight…..get married…..and head off into the Key West sunset. I love this little...

Key West in July

Key West in July

One thing I really like about my job is that I get to meet people from all over the world. Key West has an international reputation as a great place to visit. Here’s a shot of Leonie and Marc from the Netherlands, taking a stroll down the beach after their wedding on Smathers Beach. They dressed just right for an intimate outdoor ceremony in hot July. I like to get as far away as possible from my subjects and zoom in ….. everyone’s much more comfortable without a big Nikon in their face. Relaxed people make better photos. 1/500 sec at f/5.6 ISO 250 Nikon D90 with Nikon 18-200 at...

Snow? What’s that?

Snow? What’s that?

OK, usually I’m not one to gloat, but today I’ll make an exception. The entire US is covered in feet of snow…. sub zero temperatures…. ice. Except, of course, sunny Key West. Colleen and I went to the beach this morning for our usual coffee and croissants and they were setting up Sculpture Key West. It’s an annual exhibition of contemporary outdoor sculpture thats held in Key West every year. It was a little chilly though. I had to wear a long sleeve shirt along with my shorts and flip flops. Gloat Gloat Gloat. Then this afternoon I’ll be photographing a wedding aboard a...

Ahoy – flip flop overboard

Ahoy – flip flop overboard

We were sailing aboard the Schooner Appledore last night, photographing the wedding of Neil and Lisa. As we were coming into Key West harbor one of the mates lost his flip flop overboard, so he climbed into the rigging to try to spot it as the light quickly faded away. That’s Jupiter glowing up there in the upper left. Alas, the flip flop was never seen again. Ah, the perils of winter sailing in Ket West. Nikon D90 with 18-200mm lens at 18mm. !/20 sec at f 3.5 . ISO at...
