The Words and Photographs of Dan Powell


Pam & Tom

A few weeks ago I got to drive out to Cape Cod to shoot a wedding. I would have liked to get these photos done sooner, but school is going full steam, and I’ve just gotten over an awful case of the flu which lasted well over a week. Never a dull moment!

The wedding was great; everyone was friendly and relaxed, and the location and weather were amazing!

They didn’t want a football team group photo, and there were a lot of them. Jumping seemed like a logical choice.

I got to make a quick trip home last weekend to shoot an awesome wedding. Here are some of the highlights.

Right at 3PM when the ceremony was supposed to begin, it started raining. Hard.

Despite the weather, everyone was still all smiles!

Once the storm passed, everyone headed back up the hill.

Corruption. 😉

Amazing dinner..

Amazing cake..

And an amazing sunset.

Stay tuned, I’ve got another wedding this coming weekend!

I shot a wedding a couple of weeks ago. I really enjoyed it.. it was the first time I had really tried hard to make good photos in a while. These are a few of my favorite moments. I hope you enjoy them.

An August Wedding

Here are some images from a wedding I shot last month. They are a very cute, happy couple!

So I’m done with my first year at RPI (decent grades, it was fun, but I’m definitely happy to be not there anymore) and I’m writing this from a nice air-conditioned hotel in Florida. My cousin got married today and though I was not the official photographer I still brought my camera (how couldn’t I?) plus the trusty little Canonet with a couple rolls of black and white film.

I shot wayyy too many photos of the dancing, as I always do at weddings. There’s only 30 here because I have to upload these to imageshack and then copy-paste each direct link into WordPress with an image tag and it’s a pain! There’s an album with 120 in it here. And if you want to see some more stuff I also have a flickr here.

Just about all of these are straight out of the camera. The black and white ones aren’t, naturally, and I tweaked exposure/colors for one or two others. It’s much easier to shoot weddings with beautiful light and no pressure and people you know. 😉

You should see more photos more frequently from me this summer now that I’m not taking 7 classes.
