“The End” More than you ever bargained for?

Back in the day, mid 90’s or so, this photograph was taken with a Widelux panoramic camera (film days) so its a little grainy, a little soft and imperfect–to say the least, but it became my acid test for future clients. I called it “The End ” for obvious reasons, and it was to promote the unexpected. You see, at that time I was a pretty radical nontraditional wedding photographer in a time of traditional photography. I did sometimes have clients that were not the perfect match and did not really understand what it was that I  was trying to achieve. This shot happened very quickly, the bride and her bridesmaids decided in the middle of getting dressed to go out and have a smoke, the rest is history. With the bride’s permission, of course, I used this shot in full page ads in 4 wedding magazines (yes, this was before The Knot and all the rest). I figured if people called me after seeing this photo we would be a great match indeed! I was right, my wedding photography business boomed!

This particular photo was taken at the Pleasantdale Chateau West Orange NJ
