  • Sony Service Is the Worst

  • THE BACKGROUND: I have been a Canon user all my life (since age 10). I recently bought my first Sony, the a7s, in 2014, and I've loved having the smaller mirrorless camera with its awesome features like wifi and silent shooting.

Above, one [...]

  • Hilary & Gabe’s Sample Album | Kiss Wedding Albums

  • I just adopted a new product for my clients-- a new type of wedding album. You might remember the original Laguna albums-- and those are still available-- but I have now added KISS albums to the mix.

  • Atlanta in B&W Film | Kodak 400CN | Shooting Film
