Dude, that is not your bouquet.

Silly usher, give the bride back her wedding bouquet!  No, really.  Give it back.The wind provided some dramatics for us last Saturday!

Thanks so much to our bride, Sarah.  She had the best attitude ever.  Wind?  WHAT WIND?

Have a good weekend everyone,


Holga – Sarah and Chris

It is a rare but welcome occasion when a client requests that I shoot some portraits with my Holga.  Sarah and Chris were such clients, even making sure we started earlier enough so we could have the right kind of light.  The outcome, while always unpredictable can often produce at least one image I am pleased with.  There are actually several images that came out from the Holga.  But this one is my favorite.

I hope everyone has a safe and happy Thanksgiving!


English countryside wedding featured on Martha Stewart Weddings!

We were thrilled to have Lucy and Robie’s wedding featured on Martha Stewart’s Weddings!!  This wedding took place in Wiltshire, England and is packed full of goodness.  Although I encourage you to go over to Martha’s website for all the details, I also wanted to share the photographs, in all their glory, on photosmashing too.



Lucy drew a map of the town for the guest to use as a guide while visiting for the wedding.  Lucy and Robie created the save-the-date, rehearsal dinner and wedding invitations…among other things!  The hot air balloon on the invitations and map were inspired by drawings hanging in Guyers House, where the reception was held.

Guyers House….Over one hundred laser-cut birds hung from the ceiling.  The day after the wedding, these birds were cut down and given to the guests.  Julio Reyes, friend and partner with the bride & groom in the design company, BBITT, designed the birds.  Note:  You’ll be hearing more about this company in the future! 😉The seating chart was drawn by the bride’s father:The American friends and the British friends were each given the task of writing a song for the occasion.  The (American) song being sung in this picture was written by Sam Douglas, who got help singing from the British kiddos.  This song was called “Lucy and Robie in Outer Space.”

It was stuck in my head for weeks!

Again, please go over to Martha Stewart Weddings to read more about the details of this wedding.
