Annie Cat

After an extremely busy couple of months, I have finally found a small window to post a new portrait!  Last year, I wanted to give Joe a meaningful Christmas present to thank him for all he has done for me.  Once again, I found myself far too busy to complete the gift that I had in mind.  However, I told myself this year that I was going to make it happen.

At the beginning of last month, I approached Annie Cat (Joe’s wife).. and asked her for permission to take her portrait.  If there’s one thing in the world that Joe cherishes more than anything else, it’s Annie!  She graciously agreed to help me out, and I immediately went to the drawing board.  I knew that I wanted to photograph her in a natural setting, and keep the styling very clean and organic.  Aside from being an extremely wonderful person, Annie can pull off any look you throw at her.  I told her I just wanted her hair down, light to no makeup, and her everyday wardrobe.

Once we got to the location, she threw on her jacket..  the collar flipped up and immediately caught my eye.  I shot only 2 rolls of film on my Rolleiflex, and knew that I had achieved what I wanted for Joe’s Christmas present.

Thank you to both Annie and Joe for all that you have done for me in the past two and half years.. I couldn’t be more grateful for such amazing role models.

NYC with Grippi

I was pretty bummed out last year when my good friend Grippi moved across the country to Portland, but I’m happy that he’s found a spot to call home.  Between myself, Grippi, Drew, and Joe, we had a really fun crew working at the studio.. and I know we all miss that family being together!  I especially miss karaoke night every week..

Here’s a few snaps of Grippi on our most recent NYC trip!  Check out his work here!

Chelsea + Dave

How do you put into words.. the feeling you get when such an amazing friend asks you to shoot his wedding?  I remember exactly where and when it happened, because I had probably the biggest smile I’ve ever worn.

It’s safe to say that Dave and I have become family over the past few years.. all stemming from our time spent at college.  We quickly became inseparable.. always biking, shooting, and cooking together!  After only a few short months, I was introduced to the love of his life.. Chelsea.  The two of us became friends just as quick as Dave and I, and I immediately saw how in love these two were.  When you even mention Chelsea’s name in conversation, you can just see where this amazing guy’s heart really is.

I am so proud of the two of these amazing individuals, and I am even more proud that they thought of me during such a wonderful occasion.  To say that I am honored to know these two would be a dramatic understatement, and I wish both of them all the best during their adventure into love.  Chelsea and Dave.. I love you both so much!

Arielle & Andrew

Even with the extremely busy travel schedule we had this summer, there was time left on the calendar to schedule some weddings!  Arielle and Andrew decided to get married on one of the most beautiful pieces of property I’ve ever been on.  Their wedding took place at an oceanside home in Long Island.. complete with a spectacular view, and the most perfect ocean breeze.

Once again, Joe asked me to bring my film camera’s along to capture the wedding day of these two!  Between the fun wedding party, and a vast array of beautiful backdrops, I couldn’t stop taking pictures!  I’ve decided to ramp up the amount of photos in this post compared to what I usually show, especially since this was one of the most fun weddings I’ve been a part of!
