This was the second year that my son ran in the New Canaan Turkey Trot to benefit the Open Door Shelter. The number of entrants doubled from last year's which is great since it's a fundraiser. This year it was held on the cross country trails at Waveny Park. It's an event that I enjoy photographing since it involves everyone from little kids to seasoned pros and mature (extremely fit) adults. He came in 4th overall and won first place for his age group, wow! You can see pictures from this event here.

Mary Joy and Joe wanted traditional details for their second wedding. The theme was a celebration of the joining of two families with a ceremony at the quaint Talmadge Hill Church and reception at Woodway Beach Club. The Weather was perfect and having a tent wedding on the water is one of my favorite wedding styles. All shot on Portra 400 Film, Processed by the Find Lab
This wedding took place at the Greenfield Hill Congregational Church just as the Dogwoods were at their peak. The reception was held at The Burr Homestead which was decorated in a beautiful ivory and gold color palette. I was second shooting with Joanna Fisher who needed help photographing the details while she concentrated on capturing the bridal party. I love details so I was basically in heaven here!
It's a busy season and I've fallen behind on blog posts. Here's a preview from a tent wedding at the Burr Homestead in Fairfield Connecticut.
I met Allison and Brian this winter when they came to discuss their August wedding with me. We made a great connection and during our meeting it started to snow. It was all the inspiration that any of us needed to race outside for a spontaneous portrait session. I love what can happen in fifteen minutes!
Irun proposed to Erika at Fort Tryon Park so it was a natural choice for our engagement session. It's truly a gem just north of the bustle in midtown Manhattan. We didn't go into The Cloisters but the buildings exterior is incredible and the gardens are extensive. I'm really looking forward to their spring wedding at The New Haven Lawn Club!
I shot so much film while in Mexico and I love so many of the images. This last bunch is a variety of family sessions that were shot at the FIND workshop, scenes around Hacienda Las Trancas and personal work shot in San Miguel. This was a great experience! I would highly recommend Jonathan's "Film is not dead" workshop to other photographers that have an interest in shooting film. Hacienda Las Trancas is located about 30 minutes drive from San Miguel. It's a gorgeous and tranquil place with helpful, friendly staff and lovely amenities. This would be destination wedding paradise in my opinion! Viva Mexico!
Hello! Glad that you made it here and welcome to the new site! If you’ve arrived via my old blog then you already know a bit about my FIND Mexico workshop with Jonathan Canlas. It was nothing short of fabulous and I’ve been dying to share some images from San Miguel. So here's Mexico~Part I with more info to follow!
I love the colors of Mexico and I could have stayed here a lot longer then three days. We stayed at Hacienda Las Trancas. It is over the top gorgeous with gourmet home cooked food, a spa and horseback riding. I took so many pictures of the horses! We photographed models (past attendees) on the first two days and went to San Miguel de Allende to shoot personal work on the last day...sigh. I learned so much at this workshop. John talks about "finding your WHY" and in the exploration of that concept I also learned a lot about myself. Finding beauty in the chaos of life and connecting with family and friends has always been my biggest motivator. I would attend the FIND workshop again and since they are everywhere, it's like planning a vacation~easy!
