I’ve photographed many weddings at Abraham Lincoln’s cottage in DC, but the rain during Maggie and Aaron’s wedding created a unique opportunity to get creative in spots I had never thought about shooting before!

Photographers… you can find deconstructions of images like these and more over on my patreon feed. I’ve also just announced a new workshop date this August 8th in Asheville NC! Everything edited with my Gainstage preset.

Starting as a political news and celebrity portrait photographer in DC, Sam was instantly drawn to wedding photography as a space to promote more inventive ideas. Sam’s focus is on photographic techniques that are deceptively simple but have the potential to transform difficult or uninspiring shooting environments into one-of-a-kind opportunities for every photo made.

Most reviews, technical write-ups, and other photo nerd content is posted first, and exclusively, over on his patreon.
