Mother Nature was on my side once again for Andrea and Paul’s engagement session in Harrisburg, PA. We spent a couple of hours walking around City Island and enjoying the 70 degree weather.

I am looking forward to photographing their wedding this summer.

Here are a few of my favorites from the session:

Last weekend my wife and I spend 2 days in Washington DC. We had heard that the cherry blossoms were near peak so were excited to get out there and see them.

The day we arrived, a series of thunderstorms moved into the area and knocked many of the blossoms out of the trees before we could see them but we did not let that stop us. We headed out on Sunday morning for a few hours and found a few trees that were still looking beautiful.

Here are a few photos from our recent trip to Washington DC……I can’t wait to go back there this fall!

The luck of the Irish was with me this St. Patricks Day.

My wedding season kicked off with a fantastic wedding, at a gorgeous reception venue, with an awesome couple, and amazing weather.

What more could a wedding photographer ask for on St. Patricks Day (besides a pot of gold)?

I was lucky enough to be working with Stephanie and Zach for the 3rd time last Saturday. I had previously photographed their engagement session and also worked with Steph when she was maid of honor in her sister’s wedding (Cori and Andrew).

Here are a few people who made the day so amazing:

Reception Venue: Lauxmont Farms

DJ: Occasions Disc Jockeys

Cake: House of Clarendon

Flowers: Karen’s on Country Road

Photography: Me……Thomas Beaman

Check out the short slideshow for Stephanie and Zach’s wedding day story:

Here are a few of my favorite images from the day:

Here is part 2 of my Yosemite National Park photos.

All photos were taken with a Pentax 67 medium format film camera.

The first image was take from the parking lot of Bridal Veil Falls. During spring, when the falls are at 100%, you get this gorgeous rainbow at the base of the falls during the late afternoon.

A big spring flood left these pools of water. The next morning when the storm had passed, everything was perfectly still, giving me a great opportunity to take this reflection image.

During a winter storm, the snow and fog made for a very moody image near Bridal Veil Falls.

An October fire left the Yosemite valley filled with smoke. I drove up to tunnel view before the sun came up to grab this photo. This image won first place in the Lake Tahoe Community College art show. The title is “Fire’s Beauty”.

The moon was rising over Bridal Veil Falls just before the sun went down. This was the last photo I took before I left the park.

This one of my favorite photos from the wedding day. Amanda and Matt had no idea I was photographing them. I went up ahead and snapped this shot of Matt carrying Amanda’s shoes while the bridal party walked in front giving them a little alone time.
