Jessie & Humberto’s wedding in Long Island City, New York

Monday, August 17th, 2009

Jessie and Huberto got married on my birthday and I was totally taken by surprise to be asked to blow out a candle on a birthday cupcake (some of the best chocolate I’ve had in a long while!). It tells you what kind of thoughtful people they are. They had some interesting elements to their wedding day including a skeleton bride and groom as a decorative piece. When I asked about that Jessie explained it was the idea of “till death do us part”.

Jennifer & David’s portraits in Tribeca, New York

Wednesday, August 5th, 2009

I photographed Jennifer and David’s wedding celebration back in April and thanks to a whole lot of rainy days in New York City we didn’t get around to their portrait session till July. They wanted to have some fun pictures of the two of them on the cobblestone streets of their neighborhood, Tribeca, as well as on the rooftop of their apartment building.

Health Care for the Uninsured/

Tuesday, August 4th, 2009 just published my multimedia photo story on Remote Area Medical, a non-profit group based in Knoxville, TN that provides much needed health care services in the U.S. and overseas. They treated over 2,700 people in three days in Wise, Virginia. Mark Rykoff and Nick McClelland at Time did a great job putting the story together and it was a pleasure to work with them on my first multimedia story.
