Philadelphia Freedom Band, an LGBT-advocating music organization, performed their ‘Elements’ concert at the Arts Bank on Broad St.
My dear, dear friend Lucian Avadanei married his beautiful bride, Rebecca (previously Strock) Avadanei, both in Romania (where he is from) and the United States (where she is from). That’s right: two weddings in two countries! Unfortunately, due to university, I could only make the ceremony in the United States. I was honored to serve both as his best man and his pre-ceremony photographer! 🙂
Luci and Rebecca are incredibly beautiful people. They are investing their lives in serving orphans in several orphanages in and around Luci’s hometown of Piatra Neamt, Romania. You can follow their compassionate work at: https://adventuresinromania.wordpress.com/
*These photos are from an engagement shoot I did with them in early 2014; I’ll put up my pre-wedding photos later.
Justus Hibshman ranks among the most remarkable individuals I have ever met. He possesses a razor-sharp mind that is guided by both his unwavering commitment to truth and his exuberant sincerity.
I took these photos in 2013, prior to his high school graduation. He is currently studying Computer Science at Carnegie Mellon University.

Special thanks to The Bahney House in Myerstown for letting us use their super cool attic for the indoor shots!
I was filming at Tri-Valley Contractors (a Lebanon, Pennsylvania custom home builder that I am doing a promo video for–through my small business marketing company) when one of their team members (Nate Wenger) asked me to take a new photo for his business cards. I sent them to Nate on a white background as he requested for the sake of his cards–but I really appreciated the natural step gradient created by the window shutters in the background, so I thought I’d share this version of the shot.
Matsunoki Fine Skin Art and his client-and-friend Adam Schlegel. Adam is getting a sweet tribal piece across his upper arm. Although the pictures don’t do justice, I love the range of blues across the tattoo. I don’t have a tattoo, but if I did, I’d want something pretty vibrant too. I just took these photos quickly at the end of a long session–but the main reason I had my camera out was to create a time-lapse video of Adam’s session in the chair. I’ll put that up when I have it–but it’ll take me some time because there are a total of like 2,500 pictures! Even as jpegs, the files take up 13.4 gigs of my hard drive! Crazy! 🙂
