Happy Valentine's Day! With winter in (more than) full swing, I've been enjoying looking through the photos from Hanna and Jimm's gorgeous November wedding at The Kaaterskill in the Catskill Mountains. There was a crisp chill in the air that day, and the sumptuously muted autumnal colors of our surroundings were augmented by Sarah Ryhanen of Saipua's gorgeous floral design. The wedding was a pleasure to shoot and the velvety colors in the photographs are a nice reminder of the beauty of each season. Stay tuned for the full photographic story soon... Bride's Dress: Dress: Pnina Tornai Groom's Suit: Micheal... Continue reading

Part 2 Last August, I had the awesome and unique experience of photographing for 3 full days in and around Santa Barbara, California, in organic tomato and corn farms, in dahlia-filled fields, farmers' markets and in a private lemon orchard. Organized by Kelly Oshiro of Santa Barbara Chic, we decided to collaborate on this farm to table shoot from long distance. I was in New York, having never visited SB before. But with phone calls and scout pics, we were able to produce something great from afar. Before I headed out west, I just knew it would be a stunning... Continue reading

It's been a couple of weeks of "down time" after my Food Photography & Styling Workshop to finally gather images together and write a recap of that awesome day. In the interim I have been delivering many weddings to happy brides and grooms who got married in September and October. I photographed my last wedding of the year in the beautiful Catskills and then traveled to Kentucky for Thanksgiving with Chandler's relatives. While I was away I received tons of praise and got sent images from my workshop attendees, thanking me for the fun time they had at my Food... Continue reading

September is one of my favorite months of the year. In New York, New England and Quebec, where I spend a lot of time, the weather cools down perfectly while the foliage stays lush and colorful. Last September, I had the pleasure of photographing Elisabeth and Peter's gorgeous wedding at Stonover Farm in the Berkshires. It was a drizzly day, but the warmth and love really shone through in Elisabeth and Peter's photographs. Elisabeth + Peter's talented vendors: Venue: Stonover Farm | Caterer and Day-of Coordinator: Mezze Catering | Florist: Crocus Hale | Linens: La Tavola Linen | Lighting: Julie... Continue reading

Hope you are continuing to have a great summer! I just returned from a long and lovely week of shooting a wedding in Massachusetts and then driving up to visit family and friends in Canada (my homeland). Spending time in Ontario's "fruit belt" reminded me of a beautiful engagement dinner I photographed last year under the stars decorated with freshly picked dahlias, ripened fruits and local wines. Here are a couple of images from that session, shot on film. Stay tuned for a surprise feature later this afternoon! credits: couple: Samantha and Todd styling + production: Kelly Oshiro dinner: Duo... Continue reading

Ultimate Nachos, a new cookbook by Lee Frank and Rachel Anderson, which I photographed last May, was just released in bookstores! It has over 70 delicious nachos, guac, salsa and cocktail recipes! I'm so in love with the cover they designed with my photograph; two days of cover shooting made it so worthwhile in the end. This St. Martin's Press publication is selling on Amazon, B&N, Nachos NY, as well as at UrbanOutfitters, so check it out! Continue reading

Lately I've been using Skype a bit more to "meet" with prospective clients, some of whom live in London, Montreal or California. I photographed a few albums and album layouts to demonstrate what they would typically see at my meetings. Below is an example of Marina and Sam's Flush Mounted 12x12" Queensberry album in Slate silk. And below is an example of Lindsey and Scott's Flush mounted 11x14" Cypress album in Sage silk. Here are a couple of 12x12 albums in contemporary leather by Queensberry: And here are a few more layouts. My designs have been created by Tamar Avni... Continue reading

Happy fall everyone! I just returned from an awesome 3-week trip to sunny California where I photographed a gorgeous wedding in Malibu, a mid-century modern home in Palm Springs, and a farm-to-table shoot in Santa Barbara. The latter was an inspiring 3-day collaboration with Santa Barbara Chic, Could I have that, and Duo Events. Here is one of my favorite photos from the trip. I love the rich rainbow colors of vegetables contrasting against the deep black of Kelly’s dress. We had just returned from shopping at Santa Barbara’s farmers' market with a ton of fresh local produce. Duo was... Continue reading
