Tartan and Tulle

  Here we are at The Winvian in Connecticut, immersing ourselves in a bit of fashion inspiration by Beth Chapman of The White Dress, with event design by Stacie Shea Events. Such a clever combination, Tartan and Tulle! Tradition and girlie-whimsy combined! 
  I may be the only one, but I have just LOVED how much snow we've had this year! It's soooooo beautiful. I even threw my snowy white dog into this shoot as she seemed thematically appropriate.  
  These images were shot with a combination of digital and film cameras. See more on Style Me Pretty today!

Methodist Minister fights the Church for Gay Rights

 I had the great honor last year of photographing the wedding of Nick Haddad and Tom Ogletree. They had a beautiful, classic NY wedding at the Yale Club, filled with white floral arrangements, gourmet cuisine, and a classic black and white color scheme. Tom's Dad, officiated the wedding and gave a lovely sermon in what was an emotion-filled room.
 Soon after, though, Tom's father, a Methodist Minister who spent years as the dean of Yale Divinity School, faced a church trial after for officiating the wedding of his gay son. Read all about the settlement, and the inspiring story of Tom's Dad's fight for gay rights in the NY Times today!
 My favorite quote was this:
“I was inspired,” Dr. Ogletree said. “I actually wasn’t thinking of this as an act of civil disobedience or church disobedience. I was thinking of it as a response to my son.”

Erin & Taylor's Classic New England Wedding on Style Me Pretty

  I love a bride who loves pink! This bride had a blush pink Monique dress, pink invitations, pink floral arrangements, a pink cake, and pink shoes! And it was all beautifully executed with the utmost elegance. See the full post on Style Me Pretty today.
 The majority of these images were taken with my Contax 645, on Portra 400 speed film, except for the image at the bottom which was shot with a toy Holga with flash, black and white film.


 A shout-out to Stacie Shea Events for planning this lovely event!

Portrait of Christina Salway

 A portrait I shot last week of the lovely Christina Salway, interior designer, and contestant on the new NBC show American Dreambuilders.

This shot was taken with my Nikon D3, at 200 ISO, and shot at f1.8. Using a shallow depth of field allows me to get just her eyes into focus, and give a softness to the rest of the image. I just love how the greens and blues work together in this photograph. The blue tonality on what is actually a white wall, is all natural- created by the color temperature of the light at this time of day. All of it creates a gentle backdrop for Christina's killer blue eyes! Good luck on the show, Christina!

Winnie Miller Spring Line

 I had a lot of fun shooting all the kiddos for the Spring line of Winnie Miller! Doesn't it look like they're all having fun?! And there's my own little munchkin- the shy redhead at the bottom.

Bristol, RI Wedding on Style Me Pretty

  It was such a joy to photograph Margaret and Joe's wedding at Mount Hope Farm. The bride, an NYC art director, designed everything to a T .  She combined her refined aesthetic with the groom's sense of fun for an incredible combination- just like them!  See more on Style Me Pretty today.
All shots here taken with my Contax 645, Portra 400 film.
