My photographer, Carl Bower
Thanks to Yelp, we've found our photographer for the wedding. Carl Bower is a documentary photojournalist based in Washington, DC. He was one of two finalists for the Pulitzer Prize for Feature Photography for his series of photographs of a woman's fight against breast cancer. I wish I could pull some of his documentary work to show here but much of his work is in Flash. I've included a shot from one of the weddings he's done that I'm intrigued by. When we met with him he said that he actually had a shot of the bride and her father looking directly at each other in the car, but he felt that there was far more intimacy in this frame than the other.
