In Memory of Casey Clines
Back in December I shot my friends Jed and Michelle's wedding up in Baltimore. The ceremony was performed by Casey Clines. Although he worked as contract staff at my office, I had never met him. And that was my loss because he was an interesting character. Sometimes when you call someone a character, you don't mean it in a good way. Well, I do. He was friendly, charming, irreverent - my kind of guy. I found out yesterday that he died over the weekend. I will miss the unexpected interactions that I had with him since we met back in December. I'm sorry that I did not know him better. I know that he will be missed.
These are a few of my shots of him from the wedding. From what I hear, they seem to capture his spirit.
This shot is my favorite. Casey specifically asked me for a copy of this shot of him with the bartender. It seems to fit.
