Welcome To My Blog

Thank you for visiting my blog! The posts are short, sweet and to the point. Typically current photos I have taken that follow my professional and personal life. No long written paragraphs here for all of you short attention span readers. And I'm not that good of a writer anyways :-) I hope you gain a good idea of who I am thru my photography, my travels, and my humor posted here. Come back soon!


Bridal Couture for Grace Ormonde

I just spent another amazing three days in New York City shooting the Bridal Market for Wedding Style Magazine. Just like this past April, I covered amazing designers such as Reem Acra, Monique Lhuiller, Priscilla of Boston, and many many more. Be sure to check out the Spring Summer Issues of Wedding Style Magazine and Wedding Style New England to see my photos due out early January of 2008!

Reem Acra and her pooch!

Some shows are shot in hotel suites, and I just
loved the chandelier at the Waldorf Astoria,
illuminating the model.

Monique Lhuiller Show

And to top off my evenings in the Big Apple, I had two fantastic dinners in terms of company and food. On Sunday I shared an amazing meal at Serafinas with Grace Ormonde and Yanni, the laid back photo dual of Mike Colon and Ray Santana , and the lovely Tracy and Paula. Then on Sunday, another great meal at Ruth's Chris with the chic Rhode Island photographers Kristen and Jared Spencer. Everyone was a blast to hang out with and I am so fortunate to have the privledge of such great company.


"Don't Be Cruel"

Boston native / Grammy winner, Bobby Brown, suffered a mild heart attack Tuesday PM according to the Associated Press.

"Don't get me wrong - I'm really not zooped - Ego trips is not my thing ... I don't need permission - Make my own decisions - That's my prerogative" / to get my picture with him on the blog that is, lol.

While people have mixed opinons about Bobby, I actually had the chance to meet Bobby at an after party, while on an assignment in the Bahamas shooting the 2006 Miss InterContinental Pagaent (Click here to see pics) He came across as a real pleasant and genuine guy and I wish him all the best.


Fashion Shoot for Grace Ormonde

Today I had the awesome good fortune of photographing a Wedding Style Magazine fashion shoot in Providence, RI. I collaborated with two other wonderful photographers, Cheryl Richards, and M Benedicte Verley. Both of whom were just fantastic to work side by side with! The day was SO much fun, and I can't wait to see the pictures in print. They will be available for all to see when the Spring/Summer issues of Wedding Style and Wedding Style NE hit the stores this coming January. Many thanks to all of those who have afforded me this amazing opportunity!
