  • Yayoi Kusama at The Broad

  • 2017 Year in Review | 365 Seconds

  •  Another year has just flown by! When I think back on 2017, it's tempting to just brush past it and conclude that it was just like the previous few years. I didn't make any obvious life changes, and in many ways my life has settled into a pattern of photography, travels, and everyday creati[...]
  • Los Angeles | November & December, 2017

  • Call me crazy or call me lucky; I drove down to Los Angeles twice in two months. The first time was to photograph Allie and David's Redondo Beach wedding and the second was simply to attend "Second Thanksgiving" (our version of Friendsgiving). Of course lots of food and friends were involved, and I [...]
  • Rachel & Zach | Yosemite Wedding Album

  • Liz & Ryan | Gunmetal Grey Leather Wedding Album

  • I am in love with this beautiful suite of albums we created for Liz and Ryan! Not only did they select a large 12x12" album for themselves, they also added two 8x8" albums to gift their parents. Unlike the typical 6" mini size, doing full 8" albums meant that each of the parent albums included the b[...]

I hopped on a bus from Philadelphia, and for less than $20 I was able to get to and from New York, round trip. Here's a little glimpse at my wanderings!First I met up with my friend Charinee for l[...]

  • Shenandoah Road Trip

  • We picked some dates in October to make a little fall getaway to Shenandoah National Park. Little did we know that fall foliage wouldn't be peaking for another two weeks, and when it did it would be the worst color on record for the last several decades. Too little rain means too little color in the[...]
