Hero Worship: Joe Strummer {1952–2002}

Hero Worship: Joe Strummer {1952–2002}

It's crazy to think that Joe Strummer has been gone for almost a decade. The man was such a force of nature. He created primal, earthy music that never sounded gimmicky or lame. When people ask me who I look up to? Who I am inspired by? Who is my hero? Joe Strummer is...

The Art of Designing Wedding Albums

The Art of Designing Wedding Albums

Here's a recent wedding album design I created for Chris and Krista's wedding that I'm going to use as one of my 2012 sample albums. Please scroll below the slideshow to read about how the album design process works at GLK Creative. I think it might be my roots as a...

Breaking the Ice

Breaking the Ice

The biggest challenge I face as a wedding photographer is breaking the ice with subjects when I first get to a wedding location. Most couples want "getting ready" shots, but few know how to be at ease with a camera hovering about. The day is already hectic without a...

Kimberly & Andrew {Jersey City Engagement Photos}

Kimberly & Andrew {Jersey City Engagement Photos}

My favorite portrait sessions are usually the ones where the couple surprise me. Case in point: Kimberly and Andrew. The two reached out to me a few months ago after having been inspired by Lucy & Wally's portraits on my portfolio page. The two wanted engagement...

A Fun Little Game Called Toss the Groom

A Fun Little Game Called Toss the Groom

I've seen a ton of frightening stunts at weddings, most involving the hora, but a few weeks ago I saw one of the craziest feats at Xena and Firas' wedding at The Sterling in Long Island. Pretty soon after the first dance, I heard the groomsmen yelling something in...

My Favorite Model (and Chuck)

My Favorite Model (and Chuck)

A few years back, Allison and I photographed our amazing friends Chuck and Tara at an airstrip during a brutal heatwave. It was like 120 degrees on the tarmac and I just couldn't drag the bride-to-be out of the air conditioned car to do test shots for 10 minutes (she...

What’s in My Bag?: The Cameras

What’s in My Bag?: The Cameras

Having spent the years between 1995 and 2005 photographing hundreds of rock and roll bands with a point and shoot film camera, I completely understand that it's the photographer that makes the photo and not the gear. When it comes to weddings, however, having a solid...

Larissa & Anthony {Montclair Engagement Photos}

Larissa & Anthony {Montclair Engagement Photos}

I'm sometimes asked why I include engagement sessions in all my packages. The answer is twofold: First, I love spending an afternoon with a couple, capturing the emotion and love between the two in a setting that doesn't include a church or wedding hall. But,...

Brahma Bulls and a Few Moments of Relaxation

Brahma Bulls and a Few Moments of Relaxation

I probably should have posted this before leaving the country, but I didn't have a fun photo to go with it. Allison and I are in Costa Rica for a little bit of business and a couple of days of relaxation. I really thought this country was going to be a giant hippie...

The Benefits of a First Look on Your Wedding Day

The Benefits of a First Look on Your Wedding Day

Do you want to see each other before the wedding? I ask a ton of questions during the initial client consultation, but few  generate such mixed emotions as the decision to see each other before it's time to walk down the aisle. According to a tradition, the bride is...
