Emily and Jake met through mutual friends while students at Emory University in Atlanta. Now living in Chicago, they returned to Emily’s hometown in New Hampshire to treat their guests to an elegant celebration at her parent’s home. Tropical storm Danny let up just after the barn ceremony for outdoor formal photos.
I ask my associates to take a photo of the dress when they arrive no matter the location. We’ve had attics and storage rooms, and we can now add basement to the list. Love it.
Emily’s parents built this barn specifically for the wedding. The bright sunflowers and hanging stars added great splashes of color.
Beautiful reception details.
When editing these images, I was so struck by the light of the reception and how beautifully it played a role in the evening.

Congratulations, Emily and Jake!! J enjoyed documenting your big day, and meeting so many of your wonderful relatives and friends (including emilie inc. couple Erin and Brett!)!!

I will be in New York City tonight and tomorrow. If you know of anything tonight photography oriented…let me know.
I will be speaking at B&H Tuesday afternoon on Successful Websites for Photographers:

J has been with liveBooks for 2.5 years this month! He has the pleasure of traveling the country speaking to photography groups of all types. He came to liveBooks as an expert in the wedding industry, and says he continues to learned a ton about the commercial world by sitting on panels with creative directors and art buyers, by speaking to many liveBooks clients on the phone and by swapping secrets with his counterparts who shoot commercially. He truly enjoys consulting photographers on how to grow their businesses. He and his fiancé run a wedding studio in Portland, ME. This past year, they raised their prices by 25% and shot 43 weddings (crazy!). They did this by developing a strong brand and have recently done something quite unique: video testimonials. In today’s market it is important to stand out from the crowd. J loves helping photographers grow their businesses and come up with great ideas to make you remarkable!
Lou Manna is an award winning Olympus Visionary photographer whose work has appeared in national ad campaigns, major magazines, and more than forty books. After shooting for the New York Times from 1975 to 1990, he went on to establish his own Fifth Avenue studio, where he works with corporate, advertising and public relations clients to create photos that can only be described as “exquisite”. He has a sense of style, color and composition with an inherent sense of beauty.
Lou recently authored his first book, Digital Food Photography, the only book on the art of food photography devoted exclusively to digital technology. He is currently writing another book and teaching digital food photography workshops and private hands on classes in his studio. View Lou’s work at

A little over a year ago their stock was at $200, today it sits at $88…which as a long term investment might just be one of the best deals out there in the tech industry.

Photographers: Roots Workshop returns for another week next summer with more staff and less students for more personalized instruction!
dates: 7/19-24, 2009
location: Cape Cod, MA
staff include: Emilie (emilie inc. photography), Greg Gibson (Greg Gibson Photography), Arnold Miller (multi-media editor at Newsday), Jennifer Domenick (Love Life Images), Mark Adams (LaCour), Tyler Wirken (Wirken Photography), Rachel LaCour Niesen (LaCour) and volunteers ME (liveBooks) and Eric Laurits (:e:).
12 students. 9 staff. 3 teams. 6 life-changing days.
Roots Workshop is an introduction to photojournalism for already-established wedding photographers interested in gaining a deeper understanding of the roots of this chosen genre through hands-on instruction and editorial photo assignments.
While living under the same roof on the water in Cape Cod, students will be divided into three teams of four students, each with a leader and a shooting mentor. Monday is designated as a team building day, with shooting and technical exercises geared toward individual need as assessed by a survey students will take before arriving. Tuesday and Wednesday will be reserved for shooting editorial assignments during the day, each unique to Cape Cod, with group editing sessions at night. Students will be visited by their mentor and/or team leader for a minimum of one hour each day during their assignment. Thursday will be an editing day to prepare for an evening slideshow of the students’ work and a celebratory New England clambake. Friday will be open for students to stay and relax!
While Roots is designed to provide an amazing experience on Cape Cod among a group of passionate, creative minds, it is most definitely not a fluff workshop. Students will work hard and be critiqued hard. The opportunity for personal growth is enormous given our unprecedented small student-to-staff ratio (2-1). Participants who maximize these resources and engage in the experience to the fullest can immediately apply their newly learned storytelling skills to their wedding photography.
I am already looking forward to this week next year like you can’t understand…I wish there were more of these throughout the year
If you are planning to attend WPPI next month, I’ll be there and would love the chance to talk to you about the most beneficial shooting workshop…you can’t afford to miss! In the meantime, be sure to check out the picture stories from the ’08 students by visiting www.rootsworkshop.com.
Em attended the last Engage and really enjoyed the atmosphere!
This interview is pretty good…especially towards the end when he talks about showing up. During the down turn in the economy people will be rewarded for showing up. He also talks about why blogging is important.
Hope you have a few moments to listen
“You’ve set out to be boring”
So many jobs in the commercial photography industry! One that many may not have thought of before is food stylist…that’s right someone who specializes in making the food in images look like you want to eat it off the screen!
Andrea Lucich is a professional food stylist located in the San Francisco Bay Area in Northern California. She specializes in preparing food for photography.
Brand your email!
I talk to numerous artists each day from around the country and I am always surprised by how many haven’t taken the easy step of branding their email. When I see a @aol.com, @mac.com, @gmail.com or anything but their domain name, I cringe a little. Anyone taking their business seriously should have at least email@example.com for their email. It only takes a few minutes to set this up and it can be forwarded to your other email system for management.
We all stand on the shoulders of giants and Harry is certainly one of those.

Hey All…if you haven’t flown on Jet Blue you are missing out! I think they have the best airline out there right now and I travel them quite a bit. This card you can get a free flight in no time…with 4 round trip flights cross country, less if you use the card for purchases like I do. Their new terminal at JFK is amazing!
