I Made the Book Cover! History Among The Hills – Morehead, Kentucky The 2017 Mountain Workshops

It was just announced that one of my photos was chosen for the 2017 Mountain Workshops book cover! The workshop invited 60 of the best up and coming photojournalists to attend and together we created some great work covering stories about the town of Morehead, Kentucky. There were a lot of amazing photos taken throughout the week and to have mine be chosen for the cover means a lot!

Photo Story: Mother En Pointe – The 2017 Mountain Workshops

I had the pleasure of of participating in one of the best photojournalism workshops out there, The Mountain Workshops put on By Western Kentucky University. Each year they go to a different small town in Kentucky and document life in the area, culminating in a published book, a website, and a gallery exhibition.

 

Each participant picks a name out of a hat on the first day, and that’s your story to follow for the next 4 days. Team captains are assigned, along with supporting editors and writers, to help guide you along the way. It was an incredible experience and I grew a lot as a photojournalist and storyteller.

 

Here is my contribution to the workshop,

Lovesick – The Cove Eleuthera Destination Wedding – Jules and Greg

Sometimes weddings don’t always go as you planned and even paradise contains some unwanted bacteria! The bride at this beach destination wedding in The Bahamas had unfortunately caught some sort of stomach bug and wasn’t feeling 100 per cent on her wedding day. She was a trooper though, and powered through to the reception to make her destination wedding at The Cove a memorable one. Luckily she has some wonderful moments captured that focus on the love and happiness of the day instead of the nausea she was experiencing. Here’s her response after seeing the results,

“Hi Erik,  I’ve been meaning to write to you since you sent this link but have been so busy since returning to the real world!

Thank you so much for the beautiful photos- they came out great!  The unanimous feedback from those who have seen them was not only are your pictures gorgeous, but you did a great job making me not look on my death bed! lol. “

An Outdoor Litchfield Country Wedding

I had the pleasure of shooting Mackenzie and Chris getting married at a private home in the countryside near Litchfield, CT. We had wonderful weather and a fun group of friends and family to celebrate the day. Here are a few of my favorite shots from the day.

The Cove Atlantis Bahamas Wedding

This bride decided I was the photographer for her after she saw my travel photos from Nepal where her family is from. A sense of adventure and authenticity are two things I strive to convey in destination wedding photography. This couple was looking for just that for their beautiful destination wedding at The Cove at Atlantis Paradise resort in The Bahamas. The ceremony and reception were held at the Ocean’s Edge pavilion. Congratulations to the couple!

Nassau Bahamas Wedding Proposal Photo Session.

It was a lot of fun preparing and photographing this destination wedding proposal for a fellow professional photographer in Nassau, The Bahamas. The couple arrived on a cruise and rented a vehicle to explore the island. I went to Jaws Beach ahead of time and planted a “Message in a Bottle” a the end of the pier for her to discover, all the while posing as a sunbather to capture the moment. We went around Clifton Heritage Park afterward to capture a few more shots. Congratulations!
