Little Stephen is Growing Up!

by on Jan.21, 2012, under Engagement Session, General

 Its pretty obvious that I am not the vocal one in the group, but one can hardly pass up the opportunity to brag about their best friend finally growing up.

In case you are wondering, Mr. Stephen Kaufman is getting married on June 16th to a pretty cool woman named Rebecca Hartwell.

I was pretty enthused when Rebecca and Steve asked me to shoot their engagement photos, and I was even more extatic when they asked if I could shoot them in Old Town, Alexandria, VA (where I live).

I wanted to post this much sooner, but getting the photos I shot from Steve (the hoarder) is like pulling teeth.

Anyways, congratulations are in order for Steve and Rebecca, I can't wait until June!

Got a Buckeye fan in your family?

by on Nov.27, 2010, under General

It's time for the big game! (and it looks like OSU is taking care of business with relative ease) :)

Last year, Chris and I got a chance to shoot inside of the The Horseshoe, home of the Ohio State Buckeyes! We produced some great shots of the stadium and one of our favorites was this photo. We put together an amazing panoramic print and are once again putting it on sale!

This canvas print is 12" x 36", and is 1 1/2" thick. It's ready to hang as soon as you receive it. We are offering this size print for $285. If you're interesting in picking one of these canvas prints for the buckeye fan in your life, shoot us an email via our contact form.

Go Bucks!

Arbor Research Company Portrait

by on Jun.17, 2010, under General, Photo Talk, Portraiture

 A while back, I got a call from a friend asking me if I would be interested in shooting a company portrait for her.  After we worked out the details of the shoot and did some location scouting at their building, I was ready to roll on the day of the shoot.  

The concept was simple and straightforward.  Shoot a portrait of the company (60-70) people outside in their parking lot.  Make sure everyone is visible and try to make them look good. I said to myself "sure, no problem...I do this all the time at weddings".

I got to the location, and then the fun began. Here's how that conversation went:

Client: "Hi Chris, lovely weather we are having today!"
Me: "Ah yes, cloudy and drab.  Change of plans?"
Client: "Yes...and by the way, the company meeting is running late, and the management team has a conference call sooner than expected, so you'll have five minutes, OK?"
Me: "Sounds perfect, I'll start setting up."

I even had time to do a little video describing my setup. I've also included the final product for you to see. Enjoy!

Jessica and Kevin…the speeches

by on Apr.01, 2010, under General

Hello everyone.

I wanted to post up a much-desired video of the speeches from Jessica and Kevin’s wedding a few months back. We don’t typically shoot too much video during wedding day, but we always have a blog cam on us just in case we want to grab a quick vid here or there.

I love listening to speeches… and we’ve heard some really great ones over the years. Jessica and Kevin are very fortunate to have wonderful friends and family and we wanted to post this just so they have an extra-cool memory from their special day. Congratulations once again you two! Enjoy!

February + Michigan + Motivation = Pretty Pictures!

by on Feb.14, 2010, under General, Photo Talk, Travel

During the winter it gets a bit harder to find the motivation to grab your camera and go make pictures.  The thing that I hate the most is when I am out shooting and I can no longer feel my hands.  Or when you have to make a finite adjustment to your camera and you can't quite hit that little button without taking off your glove…at which point you are screwed because you've exposed your skin to the elements. All complaining aside, I think getting out and shooting during the winter is a true test of commitment and motivation.  If you can muster the courage to brave the elements more often than not you will be rewarded for your efforts.

Columbus Bridal Expo

by on Feb.02, 2010, under General, Travel

This past Sunday we participated in the Ohio Bridal Expo at the Aladdin Shrine Center in Columbus, Ohio.  This was our second year exhibiting and we had a great time meeting all of the potential Kaufman Kramer brides for 2010 and 2011.  During the show, I was able to snap some photos of the booth, expo floor and one of the fashion shows that took place during the expo.  I hope the photos give you guys an idea of what the show was like.  Enjoy.
