Wedding: John Critz/Carolyn Ennis 09Jan2010

While at the Defense Information School on Ft. George G. Meade, MD., I had met a wonderful woman, SGT Carolyn Ennis. Never in my career in the military had I found such a strong and dedicated woman to work with and collaborate with. We worked great as a team together and this day she married a just as wonderful man, SGT John Critz and I was her helper/friend/napkin maker(I sewed :) )/Photographer. It was taken at the Gramercy Mansion in Baltimore MD.

Normally I am hired as a second photographer doing more creative photos, however, Carolyn had me do everything. So this was my first full wedding photoshoot. It ws a smaller wedding so I was not overwhelmed. However, Lighting was incredibly difficult. There was only one bright window in the ceremony area and Christmas lights making flash look very artificial. I didn't like the artificial look so I did bump up my ISO on the Ceremony shots. That is why many are in B&W to get rid of some of the grain.

There are many other shots, but these are kind of like the highlights.
