Featured Photographer at The Lab Event

Happy Sunday! I’m looking forward to being a featured photographer today at The Lab Event in the SF Ferry Building. It is going to be a great afternoon of design inspiration, meeting new folks and sharing smiles with industry friends.

Our team also happens to ROCK and I’m excited to see the vision come together with the talented Shelter Co., Brown Paper Design, Minted & Batter Bakery! I will be shooting our design vignette and will share some photo goods when they’re ready.


Erin & Ted’s wedding featured on Style Me Pretty today!

I love all of the hard work and amazing inspiration that shows through in the wonderfully popular and well-done Style Me Pretty blog.  That is why I am so excited to have Erin & Ted’s wedding in the Hamptons on there as today’s featured wedding!


Erin & Ted’s story along with the creativity, class and unique details of this day were so wonderful to be a part of.  This was such a great wedding for me, full circle in some ways. I’ll tell you why in the next post–if not before, then after a Happy Valentine’s Day!


Huge thanks to Abby from Style Me Pretty!  You are so talented.

And of course, a huge thank you to my beautiful couple, Erin and Ted and their families!

City Club of San Francisco

Thanks to Michelle Kimmins at The City Club of San Francisco for including me in her latest blog entry about their planning services!  I had the great pleasure of working with her for Katie & Mike’s wedding this past season. I can’t wait to shoot there again!  

They also happen to be highlighted in Style Me Pretty’s Little Black Book for a San Francisco venue.

Wine Country Wedding

Allison and David are a wonderful couple that has been together for about 8 or 9 years now!  All of their festivities took place at BR Cohn, a beautiful wedding location in Sonoma. Kudos to Allison who made not only one, but three versions of their wedding invitation:  one in Vietnamese for her family, one in French for David’s Canadian heritage and one in English.  All were handmade and they tied in the color palette of purples and lavenders that were sprinkled throughout the day in the bridesmaid dresses and the floral elements.  As wedding favors, guests were handed individual Italian soaps which were personalized with Allison’s handwriting.  The escort cards, also in Allison’s lovely penmanship, detailed some of the couple’s favorite destinations together.

I recently got together with them and we returned to one of our very first conversations (with David) regarding his involvement as a guide with the Sierra Club Snow Camping trips.  I loved the idea from the start– maybe one of these days I will be in his group on one of those weekend trips– snowshoeing, camping, photographing and, as David attests, eating very well in the process!  I love learning more about the couples I work with.  I feel that it enriches the experience for all of us working together– not only on the big day, but sometimes, long afterward, too.

Enjoy the images from this elegant, warm and fun-filled day!

Wine Country Wedding– coming soon

BR Cohn Winery, in Glen Ellen, California is a beautiful spot to get married and I am always happy to be there shooting…coming soon.

Katie & Mike

Katie and Mike celebrated their wedding day in several fantastic San Francisco locations!

A number of key moments of their story are all centered within this great city. They met at San Francisco’s annual Black and White Ball and later became engaged at Crissy Field. On the day of the wedding, Katie and Mike chose to meet up in a suite at the Fairmont Hotel, atop Nob Hill.  From there, we went to Pacific Heights to enjoy the view and take some couple’s photos.  Following their ceremony in the gorgeous St. Mark’s Lutheran church, trolleys took guests downtown to The City Club of San Francisco located in the Stock Exchange Tower — this is a wonderful, art deco, financial district location.

One of the details I especially liked was that as an alternative to wedding cake, Katie and Mike opted for not only a table of Italian cookies but even better, an old fashioned gelato cart serving up three absolutely delicious, all-organic flavors!  Sean Boyle, the owner of SF Gelato, was recently the “Ice Cream Curator” (now that is an expert title that I can work towards…) for San Francisco’s recent Slow Food Nation event.  

Table names were all meaningful locations to the couple which were later brought downstairs and placed on the guestbook table along with some old family wedding photos.  The day was jubilant, elegant and so fun to be a part of.  Congratulations, Katie and Mike!

Fire on Angel Island


While driving back from a wedding in Sonoma last night, I spotted orange smoke pumping up from a distant hillside.  As we got closer, it became evident that it was a fire tearing through Angel Island!  It looked like molten lava.

Here are a few shots that I took from the Marin Headlands…

Planes, trains and automobiles…boats, too.

I have just returned from an amazing month of traveling up and down the East Coast! The weddings I photographed were filled with wonderful people and great locations and I look forward to sharing some images in future blog entries…

Airplanes flew me between San Francisco, New York City, Boston and Southwest Florida.

I traversed cities and states on a multitude of trains (Amtrak, Metro North, NYC Subways, Boston T lines) bringing me to stops in Boston, NYC and my home state of Connecticut.

Various roads, cars and even a bus, brought me from NYC to the beautiful South Fork of the Hamptons, on a rainy roadtrip up to New Hampshire, as well as back and forth to various other locales. I was hoping to include a bicycle as part of my road travel but I wisely concluded that it would have been difficult to manage with all my gear!

To really round things out, I cruised along the Long Island Sound on a Cross Island Ferry — from the Hamptons up to see the beginnings of leaves changing in New England.  Fall in New England is truly one of my favorite things.

On that note, travel, too, is one of my favorite things. I am so fortunate that my work allows me opportunities to shoot for clients all over the country and abroad!
