Wedding Photography for The New York Times

I was recently assigned by The New York Times to photograph a wedding here in Denver for their Style section.  The piece was in the Sunday paper here.  It was an interesting endeavor to photograph a wedding and not be “the wedding photographer”.  It was also a pleasure meeting Harley and Brooke and I appreciate them allowing me to be a part of this day with them.  And BTW, The Clyfford Still Museum is an amazing building. Here are a few of the outtakes from the day.

Black and White Wedding Photography

Congratulations to Linsdey and Josh!  Their wedding was beautiful and I’m honored they selected me to photograph such an important day for them.  They were married this August in the Denver Botanic Gardens and the reception followed at The Magnolia Hotel here in Denver, Colorado.

As you may know, I am accepting 5 weddings a year to photograph.  My background is in photojournalism and I continue to work regularly as a documentary, editorial photographer. So, I approach each wedding as an authentic wedding photojournalist, all the while understanding and appreciating the importance of capturing beautiful portraits of the couple and their family.

Below are my 6 favorite black and white photographs from the day. Yep, I used a camera set to capture in black and white.  I also used traditional high-end digital cameras and even created a few portraits using medium format film.An example of a black and white wedding photograph by Denver, Colorado based wedding photojournalist, Matthew Staver.
