Cari and Derrick

by on Sep.30, 2008, under General

We recently got a chance to work with Cari and Derrick who will be getting married in a few weeks. I love Fall weddings! Some of my favorite photos of the day were shot directly into the sun and gave both Cari and Derrick a golden back light. Very angelic in appearance and certainly one that should hang above the fireplace. (At least that’s my opinion- ha)

Alesha and Chris

Ah! Our freelancer’s are growing up so quickly these days…(sniff) Chris was a great freelance photographer that KKP has been working with on a few weddings. Turns out KKP was also lucky enough to be his wedding photographer on the big day. Alesha and Chris provided us with some great opportunities to try out new posing and lighting techniques. We’ll show you more stills on how we created some of the lighting scenarios in a few days.

Chris and Brad were shooting a wedding in Michigan the other weekend and I put together this video using some of their best shots. They also worked with a new shooter, Joe French. Many thanks go out to Joe for helping keep the day run smoothly. I think they did a wonderful job telling the story from the rehearsal dinner to the reception. I’ve heard nothing but great feedback from family and friends who attended. Outstanding job gentlemen.

Amie and Jon

Amie and Jon were a fantastic couple to work with. They spent a great of time focusing on the details that Kaufman Kramer loves to capture! We also got a chance to work with another wonderful photographer named Sangeeta Kumar. She was able to bring a very different perspective to the wedding day. Sometimes all you need is a woman’s touch. (wink)

This was a weekend when the KKP crew was split in Marion, Ohio and Lapeer, Michigan. While having all 3 full time shooters provides a level of comfort for us, we find that some of our most creative photography comes when we are pushed outside the comfort zone. A welcome feeling for sure.

Kaufman Kramer’s Photography Weekend Part 4

by on Sep.09, 2008, under General

The final part of our photography weekend was to produce a “Trash the Dress” engagement session for a couple we’ll be shooting next year. Meet Erica and Danny…who graciously agreed to rolling around in sand. Although…something tells me that they enjoyed it. (wink)






(Love the water in this shot)







(Favorite shot of the day)



(David Ziser technique with off camera umbrella)



(Gorgeous)

Thanks again guys! You were awesome models!

We hope everyone had a great weekend and we’ll have some videos to post up here in addition to the photos once we get them edited.

Kaufman Kramer’s Photography Weekend Part 3

by on Sep.09, 2008, under General

The next shoot we set up was a commercial photography shoot where we could play with how to control light. The idea was to set up a “Joe McNally” style shoot where the subject is lit in the foreground and the background carries on the story. This is a common real-world situation where a client will ask for a promotional piece and you have to work quickly.

(David being…David?)

(Brad…using a lightmeter. I think he’s being over-dramatic here) HA.

(Boring shot…where’s the background?)

(Ah…that’s better)

(“Final shot” for client)

We’ll update this post a bit later when the actual ad is created just so you can see how we’re going to take this full circle.

Kaufman Kramer’s Photography Weekend Part 2

by on Sep.09, 2008, under General

The next type of photography we wanted to do was sports photography. Now, we don’t have any 400mm lenses… yet…(wink) but the idea was to place ourselves in a position to capture emotion and the story of the day.

Here’s some shots from the entire crew:


















(This is my favorite shot from the game. We wound up losing by a blocked kick which was no fun, but at the same time, it yielded this great shot. The emotion on his face says it all) Nice shot Chris!
