queen of the hebrides

A few weeks ago Reid and I took a belated 30th birthday trip for him to the insanely beautiful isle of Islay– home to many delicious whiskies, covered in peat, cows and sheep, and populated by some of the kindest people I have come across while traveling. We were both really looking forward to this trip and it exceeded any expectations we had by leaps and bounds. Of course I brought along a few cameras to document our adventures and when I got the film back I immediately wanted to print everything off. What I ended up doing was create a book through Pinhole Press and that is the reason this post looks a little bit different- instead of creating a new layout for the blog, I simply uploaded the pages I made for our book. Haven’t gotten the final product back yet but will let you know how it turns out when I do! And now please enjoy the beauty of this Queen of the Hebrides.

annie + battle

One of my oldest friends got married this year and it was such an honor to document Annie & Battle’s wedding day¬†. I love how everything about this portrait session- the dress, location, mint julep cups, flowers, tuxes- are so classically southern mixed with the feeling of the English countryside.

Being around such joyous celebrations, for me, makes life a little bit brighter when things don’t go as planned. I just returned home from NYC where I photographed a wedding a few days after hurricane Sandy hit the city. It was pretty devastating to see the damage but also uplifting to witness the kindness of those able to help others. My clients were amazing and didn’t let the craziness get to them and with a lot of patience and hard work their celebration came together beautifully. But in the aftermath of the storm, there are still a lot of people in need of help. Donations are being taken for the victims via the Red Cross. Please, if you can, take a moment to help out those in need and spread the love!
