Northern Virginia - Washington D.C. Wedding Photography - Marcela & Dan

John Cachero Photography had the pleasure of photographing Marcela and Dan, who celebrated their wedding ceremony at the Church of the Nativity in Northern Virginia and their wedding reception at the Fort Myer Officers' Club just outside Washington D.C.

I was referred to Marcela and Dan from a mutual friend, and even though they also checked out several other Northern Virginia / Washington D.C. photographers, they still were willing to pay my travel and lodging costs from Hampton Roads to have me shoot their wedding.  I feel extra honored because Dan is also a photographer, and choosing a photographer while being a photographer is often a personal challenge.

Their wedding and reception were both beautiful and fun, but the best part of our day, in my opinion, wass when we took a limo ride to the Thomas Jefferson Memorial to photograph their formal portraits.  Thank you, Marcela and Dan, for hosting such a lovely wedding and for giving me the opportunity to shoot in our nation's capital.

Here are my favorite shots from that day.

New Twitter Background for John Cachero Photography



The John Cachero Photography Twitter account has an updated background if you visit the actual website.  To be honest, I don't know anyone that still uses the website as opposed to a Twitter client.  However, if you still use the website, you'll be treated to lots of my recent photos.

Depending on the aspect ratio of your monitor (regular or widescreen) and/or the resolution, different photos are viewable in the background.  I even took into account what photos would appear if you clicked a link that sent you to a single tweet page like this for example.

If you'd like to see the full background without any of the Twitter.com interface, click on the image below.

Weddings Everywhere in Hampton Roads (And Why I'm Behind on Blogging)



Although John Cachero Photography took a planned hiatus from wedding photography in Hampton Roads at the peak of the wedding season, I assure you, I have shot weddings in 2010!  The following is a quick sneak peek at some of what I've already shot this year and the Hampton Roads wedding venues at which I shot them:

As an added bonus, at the top of this post, I've included a shot of the little bundle of joy that may or may not be the reason why I'm behind blogging all of my photography endeavors.  (My daughter is ABSOLUTELY worth it.)

Enjoy.

Norfolk, Virginia Engagement Photography - Kat & Brian

John Cachero Photography had the pleasure of photographing Kat & Brian's engagement portraits in the beautiful Norfolk Botanical Gardens in Norfolk, Virginia.  As expected, our shoot was fun and easy-going, and I really feel that the trust they had in me as their photographer really shows through in the portraits that we created.  I am incredibly excited to be shooting their wedding... TODAY... at the Hilton on the Virginia Beach Oceanfront.

** Friends and family of Kat & Brian:  The couples' finished wedding photos will be available at the following link -- www.pictage.com/820641 -- Anyone who pre-registers to view the photos will receive a print credit towards the purchase of prints!  That's my gift to you for your love of Kat & Brian.  Thanks for stopping by. **

I'm Here, Hampton Roads... I've Just Been Busy

Chesapeake Maternity Photography

John Cachero Photography is proud to update you with all the events happening in the life of this Hampton Roads photographer.  Most importantly, I'm going to be a father!  My beautiful wife and I will be welcoming our first child at the beginning of summer.  As such, for the remainder of the year, I'll be taking on only a limited amount of photography jobs, so if you'd like to book me, please send an inquiry sooner than later.  We can't wait to meet our little daughter!

While preparing for this life-changing experience through this past winter, I've been shooting a wide variety of photography gigs, but admittedly have let my updates fall to the wayside.  The following shots are a preview of all the blog posts to come in the next several weeks.  Take care, everyone!

Virginia Beach Wedding Photography - Kelly & Aaron

John Cachero Photography had the pleasure of photographing Kelly and Aaron, who celebrated their wedding ceremony and reception at the Lesner Inn Catering Club in Virginia Beach, Virginia.  I'd been especially looking forward to shooting this wedding since I had previously photographed Aaron and his band, TailGate Down, at a concert at Granby Theater in February of 2009.  Special thanks to Jesse Courtemanche of ISO757 Photography who lent his talent and assisted me on this festive day.

Having gone to additional TailGate Down shows and hanging out with Kelly and her friends in the crowd, I knew this was going to be not only a beautiful wedding but also a really, really fun wedding.  Kelly and Aaron are an amazing couple and it was a privilege to capture their special day.

Congratulations, you two!

Here are some of my favorite shots from the entire wedding.

Norfolk, Virginia Wedding Photography - Jessica & Stephen

John Cachero Photography had the pleasure of photographing Jessica and Stephen, who celebrated their wedding ceremony and reception at the Bay Front Club in Norfolk, Virginia.  This festive wedding took place in the community of East Beach in the newly, beautifully redeveloped East Ocean View peninsula.  In the midst of shooting there, I often forgot that I was in Norfolk because the look and feel of the East Beach community is nothing like I was used to seeing in Ocean View.

At the beginning of our initial consultation, Jessica and Stephen let me know that their choice for wedding photographer was between myself and another very well-established photographer in the area whose work I completely admire.  At the end of said consultation, we were signing my contracts because they felt my laid-back and personable, but professional demeanor would be a better fit for them.  (I tell all potential clients whether they hire me or not, they should make sure of two things:  1) that the photographer is willing to show you an entire wedding set to ensure they are capable of shooting an entire wedding well, not just the few shots in a portfolio, and 2) that your personalities mesh well because your photographer will be with you for pretty much the entire day.)

The decision they made definitely worked out in everyone's favor because Jessica and Stephen were a riot and I seriously had so much fun shooting this wedding, and according to the text messages I got from Jessica the next day, she had nothing but thanks and praise to deliver from herself and her friends and family in attendance.

Thank you for sharing your joy and love with me on this day, and I wish you two all the best.

Here are some of my favorite shots from this wedding.

Charlottesville, Virginia Wedding Photography - Angie & Thomas

John Cachero Photography had the pleasure of photographing Angie and Thomas, who celebrated their wedding ceremony and reception at The Ivy Inn Restaurant in Charlottesville, Virginia, just one mile from the Grounds of the University of Virginia. Driving up from Hampton Roads to spend a weekend in Charlottesville to shoot this wedding was exciting, having attended UVA as an undergrad. I'd been looking forward to this weekend for quite some time since I hadn't been back in the Hook for a few years.

My good friend, Emma, owner of Jordan Bloom, had been getting her hair done by Angie for a while.  So when Angie hired Emma to take care of the floral arrangements for her wedding, Emma recommended that I take care of the wedding photography.  After making a few phone calls and checking out my portfolio online, Angie and Thomas hired me sight unseen.

These two were great to photograph.  Angie and Thomas were fun and easy going, and their intimate wedding, friends, and family reflected this.  I want to thank them for giving me an ample amount of time following the ceremony to take portraits.  I always appreciate being able to explore our surroundings with a newlywed couple.

Congratulations, you two!

Here are some of my favorite shots from this wedding.

Virginia Beach Wedding Photography - April & Jonathan

John Cachero Photography had the pleasure of photographing April and Jonathan, who celebrated their wedding ceremony at Holy Trinity Catholic Church in Norfolk, Virginia and their wedding reception at The Cape Henry Inn And Beach Club in Virginia Beach, Virginia.

April was the second bridesmaid from Deanne and David's wedding to hire me to shoot her wedding after being impressed with the results of my work (the first bridesmaid to hire me, Melissa, booked me to shoot her wedding a few weeks before this one).  In addition, Jonathan happens to be David's youngest brother, so I had to live up to quite a reputation going into this wedding.  I was prepared to shoot the lights out.

That morning, we were blessed with sunny skies, but Hurricane Bill threatened to make landfall at some point during April and Jonathan's day.  Not long after the ceremony, Hurricane Bill decided to sit right off the coast of Virginia Beach, unleashing plenty of rain on our beachfront reception site at Fort Story.  Hoping that they'd be troopers, I grabbed two large umbrellas from my car and asked the newlyweds if they wanted to go shoot portraits in the rain.  With the help of Jonathan's oldest brother, Jeremiah, holding an umbrella over me, the four of us ventured out into the weather and managed to capture some of my favorite portraits I've shot thus far.

Thanks, April and Jonathan... you were awesome.  Congratulations!

Here are some of my favorite shots from the entire wedding.

2010 Senior Portraits in Norfolk, Virginia - Traci O.

John Cachero Photography had the pleasure of photographing Traci's 2010 senior portraits in Norfolk, Virginia.  Even though Traci is a student in Chesapeake, Virginia, she indulged my suggestion that we explore the Waterside Marina and the newly renovated Town Point Park in downtown Norfolk.  I met Traci through her sister, Linda, whose engagement portraits and wedding I had shot earlier this year.  And just like the time I had spent with her sister, Traci and I started having fun during our shoot once I quickly gained her trust in me behind the camera, which allowed her to relax in front of the camera, which, in turn, led to some fantastic portraits.

Here are some of my favorite shots from her session.

Family Portraits in Norfolk, Virginia - C.J. & Mike

John Cachero Photography had the pleasure of photographing C.J. and Mike's family portraits in Norfolk, Virginia.  C.J. was only a couple weeks from giving birth, so they wanted photos to make a photo book keepsake for their newborn son as well as a family portrait to use in their announcements that their bundle of joy has arrived.

We only had less than an hour between that morning's rain storm and the rain storm that came down on us to end the session, but we were able to boogie through all the set-ups we were hoping to capture.  C.J. and Mike's oldest son was a natural in front of the camera, and even though the little one got a little fussy, we managed to nail some shots with him smiling... but, as always, the fussy shots turn out great as well.

Here are some of my favorite shots.

Norfolk, Virginia Wedding Photography - Melissa & Bryan

John Cachero Photography had the pleasure of photographing Melissa and Bryan, who celebrated their wedding ceremony at Talbot Park Baptist Church in Norfolk, Virginia and their wedding reception at Vista Point Center on the Norfolk Naval Base.

Melissa was a bridesmaid in Deanne and David's wedding, my first event of 2009.  She and Bryan had already booked a photographer for their wedding, but after experiencing how well I interacted with everyone during that wedding and then being impressed with the actual photographs when they were made available, Melissa and Bryan apologized to their photographer, forfeited their deposit, and booked with me instead.  I was happy they did because I had a great time shooting Melissa, Bryan, and their 14 fabulous bridesmaids and groomsmen.  Congratulations, you two.

One more thing... Melissa and Bryan booked Norfolk's own Grant Austin Taylor to play a set with his band during their reception.  This is not hyperbole when I say this; Grant is a virtuoso on the guitar and his set was AMAZING.  If you ever get a chance to hear this 14-year-old prodigy wail on his guitar, do it.  I took several shots of the band during their set and I posted my favorite black & white shot of  Grant in the set below.

Here are some of my favorite shots from the entire wedding.

Norfolk, Virginia Wedding Photography - Laura & Scott

John Cachero Photography had the pleasure of photographing Laura and Scott, who celebrated their wedding ceremony and reception inside and on the terrace of the Garden Cafe overlooking the Japanese Garden in the gorgeous Norfolk Botanical Gardens in Norfolk, Virginia.  Eric Fadden lent his talent and assisted me on this glorious day.

I'd like to thank Laura and Scott for giving me the time and opportunity to briefly pull them away from the reception.  The three of us explored the rest of the gardens and, together, we were able to capture the color, the beauty, and the love surrounding their special day.  Congratulations, you two.

Here are some of my favorites.

Virginia Beach, Virginia Model Photography - Jenni M.

John Cachero Photography had the pleasure of photographing Jenni M., a model looking to expand her portfolio, on the beach at Little Island Park in Sandbridge, Virginia Beach,  Virginia.  A photographer friend of mine, Eric Fadden, had worked with Jenni before and set up this session with her for us.

As such, I let Eric work with Jenni first.  When it was my turn to work with Jenni, I simply asked her what shots she needed for her portfolio and she told me she was interested in general fashion photography shots and headshots.  Once we started, we quickly got comfortable with each other.  By showing her some of the shots we were getting, I gained her trust in my ability behind the lens which allowed her to shine in front of the lens.  Although she had her own repertoire of poses and expressions, she was very accommodating when trying the poses and expressions that I suggested.  Jenni was very easy going and lots of fun, and I very much look forward to working with her again.

Here are my favorite shots from our session:

Atlanta, Georgia Wedding Photography - Jen & John

John Cachero Photography had the pleasure of photographing Jen and John, who celebrated their wedding reception at the Gwinnett Environmental And Heritage Center just outside of Atlanta, Georgia.  Having had an intimate destination wedding in Hawaii, they decided to have a Hawaiian-themed reception for the rest of their family and friends back on the mainland.  I was especially honored to have been asked to shoot their reception because John is a great friend and fraternity brother of mine.  This is my gift to them.

At the end of this post, I included photos documenting our fraternity's time-honored tradition of delivering a pie to the face of a brother on his wedding day.  We usually TRY to coordinate with the hired photographer roughly when it's going to happen, but in this case, obviously, it wasn't going to be a problem.  In fact, I helped set John up for the hit by insisting that he pose for a photo with his Hampton Roads buddies who were also in on the plan.  First, John's actual brother, Robbie hit him with a pie from behind which, for whatever reason, didn't stay stuck on his face.  That's okay, because Kevin hit him with a second pie to finish off the job.  Good times.

(...and just for fun, I also took two pies to the face on my wedding day.)

John and Jen, congratulations!  I know you two will take care of each other wherever life takes you.

Norfolk, Virginia Wedding Photography - Kelly & Marty

John Cachero Photography had the pleasure of photographing Kelly and Marty, who celebrated their wedding cermony in Renaissance Court and their reception in Baker Hall in the gorgeous Norfolk Botanical Gardens in Norfolk, Virginia.

While I was with Kelly as she and the ladies got ready, and Jesse Courtemanche was with Marty and the fellas, we all remained in high spirits despite the sporadic downfall of rain.  Leaving the hotels on the way to Botanical Gardens, however, the rain started coming down hard and threatened to put a damper on our day.  Fortunately, as soon as Kelly was in her wedding dress, we were blessed by the weather, and the rain stopped just long enough for Kelly and Marty to have the beautiful outdoor wedding they had been waiting for.  As much fun as I had shooting their engagement portraits, I had even more fun capturing their wedding day.  Thanks, you two, and congratulations!

Virginia Beach, Virginia Wedding Photography - Linda & Travis

John Cachero Photography had the pleasure of photographing Linda and Travis, who celebrated their wedding ceremony and reception at a lovely beachfront rental property in the Sandbridge area of Virginia Beach, Virginia.  With Jesse Courtemanche by my side, I shot this intimate and casual wedding on a glorious sunny day despite forecasts of rain.

Just after the ceremony, Linda and Travis realized that someone had forgotten to bring the song they had planned for their first dance.  Always prepared, I informed them that I had my iPod and asked them what song it was.  I didn't have the specific song they wanted, but having been told that it was a country song, I knew exactly what to play for them.  Within seconds of Linda and Travis dancing their first dance to "Amazed" by Lonestar, there was not a dry eye on any of the ladies in the room.

Here are some of my favorites shots from their day.

Virginia Beach, Virginia Engagement Photography - Linda & Travis

John Cachero Photography had the pleasure of photographing Linda and Travis' engagement portraits on and around the Virginia Beach Fishing Pier at the Virginia Beach, Virginia oceanfront.  Shooting on the busy pier proved to be a fun exercise in patience, and I have to hand it to Linda and Travis for staying in the moment for me as we landed certain shots.  After finishing up on top of the pier, we ventured under the pier and onto the beach for more shots.  We finished the session on the oceanfront boardwalk as the setting sun graced us with her golden light.  Here are a few of my favorite shots of Linda and Travis:

(*As of posting this, I've already shot Linda and Travis' wedding in the Sandbridge area of Virginia Beach, Virginia.  Look for that blog post soon...)

Senior Portraits in Chesapeake, Virginia - Shannon K.

John Cachero Photography had the pleasure of photographing Shannon's 2009 senior portraits in Chesapeake, Virginia.  Although we both had ideas about where we could go to shoot this session, we decided to just take advantage of her family's beautiful backyard as well as the rest of her amazing neighborhood.  I had a great time shooting her portraits, and at the end of the session, I really believed her when she exclaimed, "That was really fun!"  I'd like to thank Shannon's mom who, at first, was going to stick around for the entire shoot, but then decided her presence might cause unnecessary pressure, and instead, spent the session inside the house.  I personally don't mind if parents watch when I'm photographing their children, but with no one else around, Shannon was able to really relax, to enjoy her time in front of the lens, and to completely put her trust in me behind the lens, and this really shines through in her senior portraits.
