Jessica and Phillip picked a beautiful summer day for their wedding ceremony at St. Thomas Apostle Church and reception at the impressive St. Francis Hall in Washington DC. They got all fancied up, and told the world how crazy they are about each other. Or at least...

Being Human

Being Human

I am resolvedly unresolved. I have decided I will not be resolving to give up, lose, do without. I will not institute martial law on my impulses. I will not be a clock-watcher, calorie-counter, nor a penny-pincher. However I will not do nothing. I am still trying to...

Still Here

Did I fall off the face of the planet? Well, nearly. But I'm still here! And there's still much more wedding season to post! I'll catch up one of these days. And in honor of surviving Hurricane Sandy without a scratch, I encourage you all to get up and have an...

Outer Banks

Outer Banks

Her wedding day turned out to be the last day of summer - blue skies, white sand, and warm sun. The next morning we woke to a biting wind coming across the water. But no matter! She had her perfect day, surrounded by her family and closest friends.

Indian Colors

Indian Colors

I was able to help out a friend recently in photographing an Indian wedding. I'd never even been a guest at an Indian wedding before, so all of it was new to me. So much sparkle and so much color! It still amazes me that Columbus could have mistaken American "Indians"...

Any time on Martha's Vineyard is a good time. But one of my favorite times of year is September. Many of the visitors have left because the school year has begun. But the weather is still mild, and the ocean is warm as bath water. And if you can bring yourself to wake...

Bella Venezia

Friends are currently on a cruise headed for Venice. I admit, I'm just a little jealous! Maybe more than a little. For those interested in knowing, the above photo was taken long ago on black & white film. I used to love the very grainy look, and would often "push" my...

Printing: Crops

Printing: Crops

I was shopping the other day with a friend. Browsing. Wandering the aisles of a home store. We stopped to look at picture frames, and I lamented that most pre-cut mat/frame combos come in 8x10 and therefore chop a lot of my picture off. She looked at me like I had two...

Faux Vettriano

Faux Vettriano

Often times at a wedding I'll take a moment to just "snapshot" a picture with my phone. Usually a behind the scenes moment when no one is looking. Yes, thousands of dollars worth of camera equipment slung over my shoulder, and I'm Instagram-ing. Or Snapseed-ing. I...

Fire Roasted

Fire Roasted

I've come to realize cooking is as much art as it is science. I've got the science part down. Measurement ratios, acids to alkaline, temperature vs. pressure. It's the art that doesn't quite translate for me. I might be able to tell that my recipe has flopped and...
