I loved photographing Patty & Joe in Montauk. What a fun wedding and rehearsal dinner: casual and elegant, just like the sweet couple.
Patty and Joe’s daytime wedding took place at East by NorthEast. Their ceremony was set up out back overlooking Montauk’s Fort Pond. It was a gloriously sunny summer weekend. Their rehearsal dinner was also super fun, a delicious clam bake at Navy Beach. I enjoyed mixing up the mediums I used to document their wedding. I photographed with a Contax 645 film camera, a Mamiya RZ67 camera, a Holga and a Canon dslr!
From the bride:
After we got engaged, we really had no clear idea of exactly what we wanted for our wedding – other than a fun party that wasn’t too formal – or even where we wanted to get married. Eventually, we settled on Montauk, where we had spent the last two summers, and it couldn’t have worked out better. It became a destination wedding, of sorts, and we were able to enjoy the full weekend with our family and friends. Best of all, Mother Nature cooperated completely, giving us a string of perfect 80 degree days in the middle of one of the hottest, most humid summers on record in the northeast.
Patty and Joe’s wedding was also featured on Style Me Pretty. Please feel free to take a look at it here!

In preparation for the big New York Magazine Wedding event on March 30th in which I will be displaying my work, I have been busy making prints and new albums. I also have hired a new profesional printer to take care of my extra large prints because, as much as I love to print, it has been hard to find the time to do it all myself.
Anthony Accardi of Green Rhino in Greenpoint, Brooklyn has been working away and drum scanning negatives for me. Here is an image of Jade with her bouquet that he drum scanned, at full frame, for me yesterday. I’m loving all of the lovely detail which is captured in the scanning process. I can’t wait to make a print of it!
This month's Image of the Month is a photograph of Gopi's luscious bouquet, photographed during her portrait session, outside the Foundry. I love the shallow depth of field and how the rich colors of the flowers pop from the white backdrop of her dress.

Here are a couple of photographs I took on a recent trip to Palm Springs at New Years.
I had heard about Palm Springs' modern architecture and quirky interior design before going, and I was eager to see it! Driving a few hours to get there from LA, I was excited to see the mountains peeking out over low mid-century modern homes, palm trees and fruit trees illuminated by the warm desert sun.
You may see many more of these photos in these two blog posts:
I had a lovely time over New Years visiting Palm Springs for the first time! It was beautiful, and so much fun. Although it was chilly, it was super-relaxing and photographically inspiring. It was so nice to be there, after having just lived through the "Snowpocalypse" back east.
Chandler and I arrived on New Years Eve and spent time with our friends in their gorgeous new home. It was here that I made a lot of these pictures on film. Their living room was filled with awesome furniture and knick knacks (an Eames rocking chair, an ultra-comfy chaise made of seat belts, and a rock & roll Elvis nutcracker to name a few). Upon entering you see this plus a view of mountains and fruit trees through giant windows.
My other pictures were shot in various locations around the city of Palm Springs, including at the Parker Palm Springs and Ace hotels. Thanks to Jonathan Adler for designing much of the decor at the Parker, gorgeous!
