New Opportunities

For those who know me, they know my true passion is photography. I started my own wedding photography business over a decade ago and it was one of the best decisions of my life.
 
I took a chance one day and emailed a local wedding photographer, whose work I admired. I asked if I could shadow, learn and figure out whether or not shooting weddings was for me.  The photographer said yes and through all this time he and I are still good friends.  I learned so much from him about photography, weddings, dealing with people and all the other details involved in this business. Robert McClory has been my mentor and my friend so I can’t think of a better piece of news to announce.
 
Robert McClory and I have decided to join forces. Robert runs an already successful wedding photography business but he has wanted to expand his current model and offer a full time second photographer.  He was also interested in adding an associate photographer for when he was booked and/or overpriced.  For me, the best part of this is that he will handle post-production and I get to just shoot.  This set up applies to weddings he books in his studio as well as weddings I book on my own.    So starting immediately, I am Robert M Photography.
 
As a result, I’ve decided to close the doors to East Orlando Photography… for now. Over the last decade my priorities in life have changed tremendously. I’m the father of two amazing boys and continue to be the best husband I can. However, the amount of time it takes to run a business is taking me away from the one thing I care most about, my family. Wedding photography is not just a job it is a passion.  So I’ve never wanted to give it all up.  That’s what I’m very excited to announce this opportunity.
 
For those of you who are part of my current workload for those of you who are part of my current referral network… Nothing has changed. As I told each of you over the phone, I will work all my contracted weddings under East Orlando Photographer with all the passion and commitment that I always have. For my referrals, please continue to speak my name, show my work and champion my services as I will continue to shoot weddings under:

UCF Graduation Photos – Rosen Campus

I really enjoy shooting weddings and I would say that 95% of my business that I publish is just that.  That reamaining 5% is spent on little things here and there like environmental portraits, engagement shoots and product photography.  Today’s post is graduation photos on campus for Madison.  Madison graduated from the Rosen College of Hospitality Management at UCF, the same place my brother in law graduated from back in 2009.  At any rate, Madison and I had the campus to ourselves and we had a great time.  Take a look…

Cocoa Beach Engagement Shoot

This was one of the hottest engagement shoots I have done.

 

I met Chad and Jackie out at Cocoa Beach to shoot their engagement photos.  It was a beautiful day with a cool breeze and once I started shooting, boy oh boy, it got hot and steamy.  These two relaxed and tuned everyone out but themselves.  It was very refreshing to see what unfolded and once we got down to the surf, well, I couldn’t resist talking them into (it didn’t take much) getting in the water.  This marks the second time I have gotten my couples wet!  It was cold.. because I was basically lying down in it too!!

 

At any rate, these two were a lot of fun and I will post their wedding photos a bit later!!
