Brittany and Brandon's Wedding slide show

Here is Brittany and Brandon's wedding slide show....such a sweet couple. I always feel like I am repeating myself but I always feel so lucky to photograph so many great couples! I always feel honored that they put their trust in me on their wedding day to capture their special day. They always make me feel so welcome, more like a friend than a "wedding vendor". Brittany, I love my little traveling jewelry case. Thank you!!

As always, if you like the song, go on amazon and buy it. Thank you Jack Johnson for making sweet and loving music!

Brittany and Brandon were married at the UVA Chapel and they had their reception at Boar's Head

Here are some pictures from this past weekend's wedding. Brittany and Brandon were so easy going and wonderful to work with.
Amy Webb from Blue Ridge Floral did a custom bouquet for Brittany with three different orchids...delicate, elegant and fresh, just like her.
Sheila, from The Event Company was there to orchestrate this beautiful event. Brittany got ready at Boar's Head with Lucinda from Face Value doing her make up and hair.

Most of my brides are using those eye lashes, I need to try those one of these days. They look so natural and emphasis the eyes beautifully.

Look who I got to photograph today? Newborn twins

I couldn't wait to post a few pictures from today's session. It has been a long time since I had seen tiny little babies. I think the last time was my own- Those little boys are 8 days old. It was my first time photographing newborn twins I got a double baby fix:)
It took a little while for them to relax and sleep ... a little outdoor did the trick!

Can you feel the love? Those kind of moments don't happen when people are posing, they just happen when they seize the moment and share it with me.

Fabulous New york week end

I had the most wonderful time in New York this past week end. The weather was perfect. I love this town. We went to see Cat Empire on Friday night at Webster Hall then had dinner at a typical French brasserie called "Les Halles". Spent the Saturday walking all over town and went to the Metropolitan Museum and had a fun dinner at a tapas place down the Greenwich Village.

This is my mom's favorites desert "profiterolles au chocolat", vanilla ice cream in a puff pastry and drizzled with lucious dark chocolate sauce.

Wnt to the Met where saw great Picasso exhibit and my favorite sculpteur Rodin. "The Thinker " is probably one of his most famous piece.

We really loved that Tapas restaurant. "Carrera" in Greenwich Village, very inexpensive, good food, you place your own order at the bar and they bring it. Love this kind of places. Pane con tomate with powder olive oil-yum!
