Image of the Month: Linguini with Slow Roasted Plum Tomatoes


For November's Image of the Month, I chose a photograph of Silvia Lehrer's linguini with slow roasted plum tomatoes. I chose it because it is the opening image for my newly re-designed food website, which I launched last week.

Please take a look at the new featuring photographs of scrumptious desserts, delicious dishes, unique ingredients, still life, chefs, and travel photos.

Alison & Brian’s Prints on my Table



In October, I had the pleasure of photographing Alison and Brian's small 2-person wedding. After their Waldorf Astoria ceremony, we walked in Central Park and took some photographs. It was a great Fall day.

Here are a few images on my table as well as one of my favorite bouquet images from this series.

Published in Town & Country

Please check out the new Town & Country Weddings magazine and see a couple of my photos of Lisa & Barry’s Canouan, St.Vincent and the Grenadines wedding! I shot the full page beach image and the one with the girl holding the paint brush.

More images from this Canouan wedding here and here.

Inspiration Board II: Brick, Stone, Peaches and Crimson


Today I went through my repertoire of photos looking for wedding inspiration. 

Here is one of my first "inspiration boards". It contains images borrowed from previous projects listed below. Looking forward to creating more fun boards soon!

Image of the Month: Amy & Andy in Oregon


For this "Image of the Month" I made a collage of photos from a recent wedding in Oregon's beautiful wine country. It was here that I photographed Amy and Andy's lovely wedding. 

Andy is a filmmaker and Amy is both creative and a wonderful subject. When we first met, they presented me with a collage of their own, a storyboard of sorts, showing their favorite styles of portraiture. I rarely receive this from clients, and it was a breath of fresh air. I knew they were thinking creatively about their pictures. 

Before going out to Oregon, we did a local Brooklyn Engagement shoot. Amy and Andy brought props with them (a skateboard, an old Yashica camera, etc) and the shoot became easy to choreograph with their enthusiastic ideas.

For more of my wedding images please take a look at my wedding website.
