If you have been reading my blog...

You of course have read about my buddy Luke Walker. This weekend I had the opportunity to help him out with a few fun weddings he was shooting. He has been down to help me a bunch of times so it was great to return the favor. We both have different styles of shooting, so we learn a lot from each other. Plus, combining the images makes for an amazing montage. I am sure Luke has also posted some on his blog by now, be sure to check them out.

The first shots are from the Aurora Inn. The Inn has a great lawn which rolls down from the back deck to the water which is perfect for an outdoor ceremony. Even for such a warm afternoon there was a strong breeze blowing off the water, making it very comfortable. Although - I am not sure how the owners managed to tame the breeze just in time for their ceremony though. :) Here a few from the ceremony of Maggie and Kevin-

That evening I had a moment to chat with Ruth and Adam (bottom photo). Ruth is Maggie's cousin, and I will be shooting her wedding in NYC in March. It was nice seeing you guys - your wedding is just around the corner!

Our eyes still groggy from 4 hours sleep, we took off for the Turning Stone Casino, with a quick stop for a GIANT cup of coffee. Nothing like gas station coffee to get you going...

However - caffeine wasn't necessary, this wedding was non-stop from the moment we got there. Poornima and Farooqs wedding had over 400 guests fill the casinos biggest event hall. From the ceremonies to the elaborate clothing this wedding was a photographer's dream.

Thanks for a great weekend Luke, and for keeping me away from the blackjack tables! :) As always an inspiration to hang and work with you.

Rockin images J man. You two look like you had a great time and really brought the house down.

I know it was a lot of work and travel but you must be thriled with the images you produced.

Keep soaring bud!
