Central Park Boathouse wedding: Cathy and Glen

Beyond the Dusk

I love shooting in November, at least when it’s unseasonably warm as it has been. It could be noon and the sun still comes as a flattering oblique angle. But it also means that it gets dark early. Really early. So if your ceremony runs a little long, you might show up at the gorgeous […]

Alone together

This is one of those pictures that even my large-size blog format doesn’t really do justice — the original is about 150 megapixels.

Stonehouse at Stirling Ridge Wedding: Jessica and Brian

I’m on my way back from the Foundation conference in New Orleans, which is a fantastic gathering of wedding photojournalists devoted to storytelling, focusing on the moment and the really important things that got me excited about wedding photography in the first place. I am so motivated and buzzing to go out and tell my […]

Yes, I enjoyed Aruba

This is much, much closer to out-of-camera than you might think. So much more to come.
