From the Publisher

The Hamptons possess an unmistakable and indisputable charm. The bounty of the farms and the character of each town in this string of villages have created a remarkable culinary culture among the sand dunes and lighthouses.

Image of the Month: Jade in Bridgehampton

Happy Weekend!
I made this photo of Jade and her bouquet at her wedding at the Bridgehampton Tennis and Surf Club a few summers ago. For the recent New York Magazine Weddings Event, where I had a booth, I enlarged a print of it to 6 ft high, mounted it and placed it on an easel to display behind my table. So much fun.
The event was this week, and was a huge success! It was the first year I attended as a participant. Our table was super-busy, and I was told later that more than 1500 people were in attendance!
To see photos taken at the NY Mag Wedding Event feel free to look at the album on Facebook here.
For more from Jade and Chris’ wedding you may look at my previous Bridgehampton wedding blog post, or you may see more of my Hamptons weddings on my website under Hamptons.
Thank you for your continued interest and have a great weekend!

A Day’s Work: C-Prints on my Wall

KarenWise_CPrintsonmyWall_8969-1
I had the pleasure of getting back in the color darkroom on Friday to print some 11×14's for the upcoming New York Magazine Weddings event on March 30th at the Metropolitan Pavilion.

I was using a new kind of paper, the Fuji Crystal Archive Type II as opposed to my favorite Super C which had been discontinued in 11×14 sheets, to my dismay. I do like the prints I made, even though they appear softer and less contrasty than they would have with the Super Type C.

Here are the 6 prints I made in the darkroom on Friday.

Patty & Joe in Montauk

I loved photographing Patty & Joe in Montauk. What a fun wedding and rehearsal dinner: casual and elegant, just like the sweet couple.

Patty and Joe’s daytime wedding took place at East by NorthEast. Their ceremony was set up out back overlooking Montauk’s Fort Pond. It was a gloriously sunny summer weekend. Their rehearsal dinner was also super fun, a delicious clam bake at Navy Beach. I enjoyed mixing up the mediums I used to document their wedding. I photographed with a Contax 645 film camera, a Mamiya RZ67 camera, a Holga and a Canon dslr!

From the bride:

After we got engaged, we really had no clear idea of exactly what we wanted for our wedding – other than a fun party that wasn’t too formal – or even where we wanted to get married.  Eventually, we settled on Montauk, where we had spent the last two summers, and it couldn’t have worked out better. It became a destination wedding, of sorts, and we were able to enjoy the full weekend with our family and friends.  Best of all, Mother Nature cooperated completely, giving us a string of perfect 80 degree days in the middle of one of the hottest, most humid summers on record in the northeast.

Patty and Joe’s wedding was also featured on Style Me Pretty. Please feel free to take a look at it here!

Drum Scanning Negatives

In preparation for the big New York Magazine Wedding event on March 30th in which I will be displaying my work, I have been busy making prints and new albums…

KarenWise_GreenRhinoScan-JadeIn preparation for  the big New York Magazine Wedding event on March 30th in which I will be displaying my work, I have been busy making prints and new albums. I also have hired a new profesional printer to take care of my extra large prints because, as much as I love to print, it has been hard to find the time to do it all myself.

Anthony Accardi of Green Rhino in Greenpoint, Brooklyn has been working away and drum scanning negatives for me. Here is an image of Jade with her bouquet that he drum scanned, at full frame, for me yesterday. I’m loving all of the lovely detail which is captured in the scanning process. I can’t wait to make a print of it!

Image of the Month: Bouquet at the Foundry

KarenWise_GopisBouquet_Feb2011

This month's Image of the Month is a photograph of Gopi's luscious bouquet, photographed during her portrait session, outside the Foundry. I love the shallow depth of field and how the rich colors of the flowers pop from the white backdrop of her dress.

Image of the Month: New Years in Palm Springs

KarenWise_PalmSpringsDiptych1
Here are a couple of photographs I took on a recent trip to Palm Springs at New Years.
I had heard about Palm Springs' modern architecture and quirky interior design before going, and I was eager to see it! Driving a few hours to get there from LA, I was excited to see the mountains peeking out over low mid-century modern homes, palm trees and fruit trees illuminated by the warm desert sun.
