burning man and back

after meeting with camp mates in fernley and retrieving our tickets, we began the long trek into burning man. it was another few hours before we reached camp, by which time the night had given way to sunrise on the playa. magical, mysterious, we had driven through the darkness and arrived at the dawn of a new world literally.

throughout the week, i'd get the feeling that i really was on another planet. i'd somehow travelled to a bizarro world where burning man existed, if only for a short time. sure, there was lots for the grizzled mind to bah humbug at, but there was also lots to marvel and be amazed by.

late one night, i found myself laughing out loud when i was walking back to camp and an art car shimmied past me with a dusty cowgirl riding on top, manning a flaming turret. i thought to myself, "this is ridiculous, but this is real!" and the laughter escaped. it felt good.

this gallery is a small glimpse into the world of burning man as i came upon it.

montana

i took a flight up to montana to meet up with art. from there, we were prepping and driving down to the black rock desert for the one and only burning man. i don't know how he convinced me to go, but he did. my first burn, i was very excited!

art picked me up from the quaint missoula airport, and then we drove to his mom's place where we stayed for the next two days. she's an adorable lady, who for being such an isolated individual was very gracious in opening her doors to a stranger.

y+j, part 1

aside from the b&w's, y had shared with me her pinterest of wedding photos which she had been collecting over the months. among those photos, i noticed she seemed to have a love for photos with soft focus. so for her wedding, i brought out my lensbaby, which allows for selective focusing. it gives the images a controllable softness/bluriness.

meeting y+j and co.

it's not often that i shoot a wedding without actually meeting the couple beforehand, but with our hectic schedules it was hard to plan a meeting with y+j. so when they told me they were getting together with some family and friends in long island city the night before their wedding, i had to drop by.

y+j in black and white

during one of our conversations, y had asked for black&white shots (it seems to be more of a request nowadays). she has a beautifully structured face that seems to pop in black&white. so here you go, y! i just wish we had more time to shoot formals that day.

more photos to come..

coming across the pond from england to get married in new york, h+j's delightfully intimate wedding was full of bright eyes and big smiles. with open hearts and the core of their family and friends to celebrate with, they got married under the whisper of rain at the ladies pavilion in central park.

rainy days also give you once-in-a-lifetime moments like this, when a beautiful sunny day would have meant this spot would be packed to the hilt with tourists and locals.
