The Mazzotta Wedding Rehearsal & Dinner

The Mazzotta Wedding Rehearsal & Dinner

I finally got around to processing some images from the wedding rehearsal in July 2015. I captured the images with a Leica M and a 21mm/1.8 lens so that I did not need flash which destroys the atmosphere in my opinion. It was a really hot and humid day which is evident in the photos. It is nice to have images like this so that it brings back the memories of the...

Mr. & Mrs. McKibbin

Doing weddings is not my cup of tea but after months of saying no I finally gave in for this wedding.

This is another example of the importance of having a quality camera with you all of the time even if people think you are silly. There are a lot of sun stars on the vehicles if you examine the picture closely and that is a result of the particular lens I...

Heavy Chevy!

Heavy Chevy!

Look at that amazing grill! It reminds me of those people, that display a wall of chicklets when they smile, less than naturally, in dental advertizements; but this is absolutely gorgeous! Even though I was wearing a suit, I had to get down on one knee to capture this wonderful Chevy truck. It was in a generally photogenic location instead of parked among a crowd of vehicles. The sun stars are created by the gorgeous Zeiss 35mm f/1.4 ZM lens on...
