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.

Amy and Andy were married in the winemaking town of Newberg, Oregon.

They are both from Portland, and met in high school :)


This diptych was shot using the Mamiya RZ67 and the Contax 645, both medium format film cameras.

Sneak Peek: Amy & Andy’s Engagement





Before going out to Oregon to shoot Amy and Andy's wedding, I photographed an Engagement Portrait session in of them in Brooklyn. More images to come…

Image of the Month: Apple Picking Season


September always feels like a new beginning: the start of school, cooler temperatures, the Jewish New Year (Rosh Hashana), apples & honey and lots of bees around! Growing up in Montreal, Canada, apple season was a little earlier, in the month of September.
This image of the month is a compilation of film photos from apple picking two seasons ago with Chandler. You may see more images from that day here and here.

Published in Food Arts




I recently had the opportunity to go back to my hometown (Montreal, Canada) to photograph some dishes prepared by Michele Mercuri, the executive chef at XO Le Restaurant, at the Hotel Le St-James, for Food Arts.

I loved the experience, these chefs treat plating like it's sculpture!
