We had a little rain but it just added to the beauty of the day. Thanks to: Of course our amazing wedding day […]

    Parker! I just love your work and I feel that I’m learning so much about your photography style through each click of your shutter. I’m more than inspired. I have been in the business 3 years now and was told by my mentor to look at 1000 top images a week. I came across your site and I’ve learned so much about composition and lighting–and this wedding in particular with the Biltmore Estate is just stunning!

    Your clients are so blessed to have someone with such raw intrinsic talent document their most important milestone in life….

    Thanks for sharing!

Letting go of control. Losing it? Perhaps.

hello world, 2 days ago (Wednesday) was the regularly scheduled day to chase and expand the artistic visions that keep flickering in my head. Some weeks it happens on a Monday, others, on a Tuesday, but every week I try to carve out one day that is meant for the sole purpose of feeding my […]

    Keep up the quest :)

      Thanks Sean! I live Wabi-Sabi. It is who I am OK being. Thank you for your kind words.ReplyCancel

    well said.ReplyCancel

  • Christina - February 7, 2013 - 8:20 pm

    I love the depth the camera/lens combo gives in these photos. I have to ask if you used zeiss lenses?ReplyCancel

    • Parker J Pfister - February 8, 2013 - 3:40 pm

      Zeiss ha!!!!!! No this lens is from a security camera. Just a cheap 1.7 CCTV lens. They do render and amazing look though! Thanks!ReplyCancel

  • Christina - February 13, 2013 - 4:46 pm

    Boy did I jump to conclusions, here I thought you had retrofitted some vintage lens. I think this is cooler simply because artistry can be made from any medium. Like Picasso using house paint, still a genius.ReplyCancel

more camera time

hello world, I really just wanted to let you know I am still around. I’ve been spending more time with a camera in my hand than a keyboard in my face. Feels good to just let go of all that stored knowledge and tech stuff and just make images. I just wanted to share what […]

    All great images Parker! So many meanings, and so many levels. Love them and love to see you doing them and sharing. Especially love the one with the white lines around her (still trying to figure out what that is), and the feeling of the first one. I need to find a hat like that too.ReplyCancel

Smitten with Smitten Magazine! An Editorial and a real wedding!!

  Hello world, A few months back a couple of great friends/kindred spirits/colleagues/buddies and trouble makers ( Richard Israel & The Mighty Timm Young) joined forces for a editorial assignment for Smitten Magazine. I am pretty sure that we broke the needle on the fun-o-meter before we arrived for the shoot at Cabin Bluff. With […]
