Ultimate Nachos, a new cookbook by Lee Frank and Rachel Anderson, which I photographed last May, was just released in bookstores! It has over 70 delicious nacho, guacamole, salsa and cocktail recipes!
I’m so in love with the cover image. Two days of cover shooting, and with added help from prop stylist extraordinaire, Kira Corbin, made it so worthwhile in the end. Can you believe the Ultimate Nachos cookbook photography took only 4 days to complete with over 100 images…
This St. Martin’s Press publication is selling on Amazon, B&N, Nachos NY, as well as at Urban Outfitters, so check it out!
One of my portraits is featured in a Kodak film brochure!
This portrait of Abbi and Luke, on a Brooklyn stoop was taken on a chilly winter’s day, was chosen to promote Kodak’s Portra 160 print film. Really proud to be a part it, as most of you know I continue to love and support film photography, using it as often as allowed with every project I do.
Lately I’ve been using Skype a bit more to “meet” with prospective clients, some of whom live in London, Montreal or California. I photographed a few albums and album layouts to show what they would typically see at my meetings.
Here are a few pictures of Beth and Josh’s 12″ x 15″ Duo Queensberry Wedding Album Design which I thought came out exquisitely:
Below is an example of Marina and Sam’s Flush Mounted 12×12″ Queensberry wedding album in Slate silk.
And below is an example of Lindsey and Scott’s Flush mounted 11×14″ Cypress wedding album in Sage silk.
Here are a couple of 12×12 wedding albums in contemporary leather by Queensberry:
And here are a few more layouts. Our wedding album designs have been created by Tamar Avni in Los Angeles, or Queensberry’s designers in New Zealand.
Text can be incorporated in the layout of the wedding album deisgn, as well as on the cover, blind embossed.
At our meeting I can show you a swatchbook of leathers and silks for your album cover:
I’m thrilled to be featured in The Knot magazine with Michele and Daniel’s gorgeous Manhattan wedding! What a pleasure it was to collaborate with the talented Ron Wendt Design on this Angel Orensanz Wedding. The bride and groom got ready and had their first look at Trump Soho Hotel. I love shooting at Angel Orensanz. It’s a vast cavernous old synagogue in the lower east side, on Norfolk Street. It looks old-world and historic, because it is – it dates back to the 1800’s. There is no daylight inside (except for maybe a smidge emanating from the stained glass way up high) but the uplighting used at this venue accentuating the gothic architecture is so beautiful, luminous and photogenic. On this day, Roberto was the lighting designer, he is so talented!
Michele and Daniel chose a light blue and icy white lighting backdrop which contrasted nicely with the season – their wedding took place in the heat of August. Please check out the story in The Knot print magazine and online this month.
You may see more of the photos from Michele and Daniel’s wedding HERE in another of my blog posts.
I was so honored to photograph this beautiful Angel Orensanz Wedding which was also featured in The Knot magazine! Michele and Daniel’s wedding was beautifully decorated by Ron Wendt of Ron Wendt Design. I’m always inspired by beautiful design and decor, and of course a happy and gorgeous couple too!
I just returned from an awesome 3-week
trip to sunny California where I photographed a gorgeous wedding in Malibu, a mid-century
modern home in Palm Springs, and a farm-to-table shoot in Santa Barbara. The
latter was an inspiring 3-day collaboration with Santa Barbara Chic, Could I have that, and Duo Events.
Here is one of my favorite photos
from the trip. I love the rich rainbow colors of vegetables contrasting against
the deep black of Kelly’s dress. We
had just returned from shopping at Santa Barbara’s farmers’ market with a ton
of fresh local produce. Duo was ready to cook, and we were ready to style,
shoot, and eat!
