Image of the Month: Kentucky Thanksgiving


These photographs are from my recent trip to Ashland, Kentucky where I spent Thanksgiving with Chandler and his mother, Rita.

Having spent the last five years gut renovating a pre civil war log cabin (what she calls her “Ole Kentucky Home”) Rita recently retired from Philadelphia to her hometown of Ashland and her cozy new cabin.

We visited for the first time over Thanksgiving and were amazed at how beautifully she restored her new home.

I really enjoyed my week there, and meeting all of their warm and hospitable extended family.

Sneak Peek: Kentucky Thanksgiving


I was so excited to pick up my Kentucky film from the lab today. I LOVE the prints and scans. Here's the first diptych I made, with Rita's log cabin at sunrise on the left.

More to come…

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.
