This week has been awesome for any daylight loving photographers like myself. From 6/20 - 6/27 we had the longest days of the whole year! That being the case, Chris, Lissette, and I decided to start our shoot around 6pm. We shot for about 1.5 hours all around the High Line and around Manhattan's Meat Packing district. I brought Kelly along to help me hold gear and keep the people moving past. People are so polite! Foot traffic seems to come to a screeching halt when I'm shooting. Okay okay- not a screeching halt... but you get what I'm saying right? Chris and Lissette are making a website dedicated to the festivities and details surrounding their wedding, so these pics aught to come in handy ;) It was such a good time! I can't wait to shoot their wedding this coming October!
Things are moving so fast! It feels like July is over and it hasn't even begun! In the coming weeks I've got some new fabulous couples to hang out with and shoot, and I even get to go shoot my darling friend Meghan-K get married on the beach in Carmel, Caifornia! That means I'll have plenty of work to post in the coming weeks. For now-- images of Summer in the city!
This past Saturday I had a few hours to enjoy the sun with a Kelly & Meghan. We met up at the Waterfront Park around 2pm and soaked up the sun until the sweat beads began to form rivers down our backs & brows. Then, for me, it was back home to continue work on several albums I've been designing for myself as well as for Photo Pink. (I'll be posting pics as soon as the new albums arrive. I even got new swatches to show off too--- Yay!)
Anyhow, just a few Summer shots around our amazing neighborhood of Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Hopefully Meghan doesn't hate me for putting up this adorable pic I took of her. She just looks so chic in those shades!
Heck yes! I love to travel! For destination weddings outside of New York or California please don’t hesitate
to inquire about travel fees.
WHAT’S INVOLVED IN BOOKING YOU FOR OUR WEDDING?
To book your date and guarantee that I will be photographing your wedding a contract and a deposit of 30% are required. I book weddings based on a first come first served basis upon receipt of deposit and contract. Thanks for understanding.
HOW MUCH OF AN INVESTMENT IS KATIE OSGOOD WEDDINGS?
The most basic package starts as low as $1500 for five hours of coverage and a dvd of jpgs, complete packages start at $3500- worth every penny. Complete packages include a DVD of digital negatives, a credit towards prints, an album, as well as a get-to-know-you engagement photo session.
WHO WILL BE PHOTOGRAPHING OUR WEDDING WITH YOU?
I have several photographers who I shoot with including Konrad Brattke. However, sometimes Konrad is booked in which case I have a couple other photographers I work with. I am always 100% confidant of my second shooters abilities to create images that are beautifully composed and complement my style.
HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE TO GET OUR PICTURES?
It takes me about four to six weeks to edit and upload your images to your gallery. Why you ask... every image that I deliver to you is individually edited. I’m a control freak when it comes to my photographs. I want every image you get to be absolutely perfect. This takes time, but I promise, it’s well worth the wait.
HOW MANY IMAGES WILL YOU DELIVER?
You will receive about 500 images that tell the complete story of your day. You’ll just get the best of the best everything I shoot, I promise.
DO YOU HAVE INSURANCE?
Absolutely! Katie Osgood Weddings is covered by Hartford and has liability coverage for up to $1,000,000. You're in good hands ;)
WHAT KIND OF EQUIPMENT DO YOU USE?
I use Canon digital equipment, my 5D is pretty much an extension of my hand and I kinda love it that way.
HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR PHOTOGRAPHIC STYLE?
I consider myself a portrait journalist. This means, some parts of your wedding will be posed, while other parts will be captured as the action plays out.
WE LOVE WHAT YOU DO, BUT WHAT IF WE HAVE AN IDEA OF OUR OWN?
I love to collaborate with my clients! I am always down to try something creative, crazy, or new! Shoot me your ideas and let’s make some pictures!
Sorry for the delay in adding text to this blog post, there was a lot of emotion surrounding this wedding for me, so it's taken me some time to step back and think about what exactly to say. One month ago I flew to California to attend/ shoot one my dearest friend's wedding. Danielle and I met freshman year in college at San Jose State, yes long before my Art Center days. She lived down the hall in the dorm and was nothing like me. We were a seemingly unlikely fit as friends but once we got to know each other we were inseparable. We used to say, we only ever made plans on the weekend with other people in case one of us was busy--- everyone else was a back-up plan. Danielle is from San Jose and I was about 5 hours away from home, so naturally Danielle's family became my surrogate. I went on family camping trips and dinner at their house three to four times a week. As the end of 2005 came around I began to realize I needed a different education than San Jose State could give me. So I packed my U-Haul and headed to Los Angeles to start college yet again. When I was in LA Danielle met Martin. The intensity of our friendship had most certainly calmed so we talked much less and saw each maybe only once a year.
When Danielle told me she and Martin were finally going to tie the knot I was soo excited. I knew I had make the trip out to California for the big day. Let me just say, I'm so glad I did. From the night before all through the wedding day emotions were running high, as they tend to on wedding days.... As for me, I'm used to being, for the most part, calm and collected, just happy to see people happy. Except for the occasional heart-felt speech, which always gets me! God I love weddings! But this day I'm pretty sure I almost cried a dozen times. Danielle was so happy, so beautiful, and her family- sooo much love. I guess that's the thing about weddings... you realize how important family is. Weddings are the birth of a new family.
As for the photos, I used one camera and my 50mm 1.4 lens. I love to shoot wide open as much as possible and I shot jpg for the latter half. I know, I know, a big no no. But I was creating a stop-action movie for nostalgic purposes. Danielle and I used to make the drive from Nor Cal to So Cal every now and then. On one particular occasion we made the entire trip about making our stop-action. We pulled over everywhere, we ran through orange groves, jumped through fields, and danced for no reason other than to shoot it. When it's done it will be in honor of our past and to her future. I love you Danielle and I wish you are Martin a happy happy life together! :)
Welcome to my blog! Here you will find a potpourri of images from my personal and professional life. It should be said, I rarely turn down an opportunity to shoot whether it be a wedding or just a good idea for a portrait for a friend or colleague. On planned photo adventures I most likely have my 5D at my side rockin' my 50mm lens (my fav!), but at the very least I've always got my trusty iPhone with it's arsenal of apps (who says you need 21 mega-pixels to make great images?!). So please, scroll and click around. I hope you enjoy looking at my images as much I as I enjoy making them!
