A Week of Inspiration

Last week was unbelievable. I spent the first half traveling from Portland Oregon along Pacific Northwest Coast, through the redwood forest, then over into Lake Tahoe, through Death Valley, and finally landed in Vegas for the 2008 Wedding and Portrait Photographer International (WPPI) convention. Julia Newman and Punam Bean, two amazing photographers, and more importantly good friends of mine took the trip with me. We took our time.. stopping constantly to photograph the amazing landscape. Everyday was spent in a completely different climate.. it was incredible. See below for some images from our journey.

our journey..

Black Sand Beaches in Northern California

They look so serious, don't they?

We found this nook in the Redwoods..

mmm.. yummy light!

massive clovers.. leprechauns were gonna come out at any moment

Punam taking a nap in the clovers

Ok, she's not really taking a nap!

Julia getting in on the fun

Lake Tahoe.. caught these two shots from the car. I can't wait to go back and spend some time there.

Death Valley

Can you believe that sky?! yeah.. we don't have skies like that in NYC :-)

Death Valley Junction, a ghost town.. sorta.

Julia, looking like her hot cowgirl self.


Jen & Mike

What a great way to start out the 2008 season! Jen and Mike were married at The Church of the Blessed Sacrament on the Upper West Side and then continued on to a classic New York reception at Tavern on the Green. Check out some more shots in their slideshow! Also, check out Lindsay's Blog for some her amazing shots from the day!

Shhh.. I snuck inside the Sacristy to catch this one.


Photo Phriday on Unveiled Society

I just got in from Vegas and to my pleasant surprise I see that I was last Fridays spotlight on The Unveiled Society Blog! This blog was created by a fellow photographer, Justine Ungaro who is in the process of planning her own wedding to bring other bridal bloggers together. Check it out!



I'm in Vegas for WPPI.. so excited! I have lots of photos to post from the roadrip out here. Back to the blackjack tables for now! To be continued..


WPJA Contest

Two of my images were chosen in the latest WPJA contest! Be sure to check out the full gallery.. there are some wonderful shots!

This shot was taken at Katie & Seth's Wedding. I love Seth's expression! Stay tuned.. Katie will be making an appearance in a post about contests in April :-)

Daphne & Mike.. some of my favorite images came from this wedding. They all had such a blast.. so much joy!


Google Reader

Google Reader is my new best friend. I used to have all of my favorite blogs bookmarked and would go to each one in the morning while I drank my coffee. This of course resulted in much disappointment when many of the blogs were not updated. I have now changed my ways and subscribe to my favorites using Google Reader. I go to one page, it tells me who has updated, and I only look at those blogs. I've since added many new blogs to my collection since the process is not so overwhelming now :-) So, go to and subscribe to all of your favorite blogs (including mine of course!)


Caroline and Jeff

A few weekends ago I tagged along with Jocelyn Filley to shoot the wedding of Caroline and Jeff at The Union League Club in Manhattan. Weddings never cease to amaze me.. watching families come together to celebrate love.. I'm touched every time.. no matter how many I have been to. Caroline and Jeff's wedding was wonderful.. lots of laughs, tears, and love.
