new website!

well, it is 12:03am on 9.28.07...which means 2 things:

1. my new website is finally live! (it's still a teensy bit under construction, so please bear with me...september is pretty much the most ridiculous month in my universe. i don't think i've cooked anything besides popcorn--the non-microwave kind, i'm old school--since sometime in august.)


i love it soooooo much, and i hope you do, too!

2. it's my birthday! leave me some love, all you blog-stalkers...i know you're out there. i check my stat-counter. :-D

ok. i've gotta get back to work...hopefully by the time you all wake up and read this, the site will be far less under construction, and more 'under tweaking'. (also, past clients: your proofing galleries have been redirected. The old links should still work; if you're having issues, please email me, and I'll sort everything out!)

favourite. EVER.

soo...on 9/1 i headed down to philly-ish-town to photograph the everything-but-the-ceremony-because-they-already-did-it-in-PARIS-i-KNOW!-i-feel-bad-for-
them-too of catherine and dave.

we met at a park to do some couple and family photos before we headed to their family restaurant for a pretty awesome party/reception.

as per usual, bridal hairdos take longer than expected, so our time was cut a wee bit short...making me triply glad i'd done location scouting beforehand.

these two images are probably my favourite bride and groom shots ever. (ok, as i type that, i'm reviewing other favourites and going, "hmmm, is that ACTUALLY true? i don't know..." they're contenders for the all around, and definite gold medalists for the "fun" category.)

i told them to "give me rockstar"...catherine pulled out the big guns, totally trumping dave's token rockstar sign. i told dave, "dude, she totally beat you!" and because dave is a rockstar kind of guy (catherine made him take off his skull ring for photos), he said, "wait, wait...let's do it again. i can do better.)

and this next one...this was ALL her. which is why she is my favourite (of the minute...i kind of have a lot of favourites.)

rachel and ali...engaged

so, basically...the highest honour you can ever receive is to be applauded by your peers, right? because they're the ones who really *GET* what your job entails, and if they think you're good at it...you totally are.


i was extremely flattered and hugely intimidated when Rachel (of decent urban weddings fame), the fabulous one, who gave me my start in wedding photography, asked me to shoot engagement photos for her and her new fiance.

we met in lowell, ma (have you heard the death cab for cutie song by the same name? i believe it is a free download from epitonic.com.) which is chock-a-block with urban decay...colours and textures galore.

here are some of my favourites:

hey mister...
(this is one of my favourite concepts...i didn't make it up, but i'm owning it!)


she is NOT the typical bride. (in FACT...she got her dress off ebay, but she's so unworried about this stuff that...because she doesn't have an ebay username, she asked me to buy the dress on her behalf. i think that's hilarious.)

(i called this their "anthropologie catalogue" photo.)

(this is her favourite.)

this one is my very favourite, and i think they should use it for their save the date cards.

new stuff

my new macbook pro arrived...it is glorious. it also has photobooth, so after i got home from getting my hair cut tonight, i played with it.
