Petalena Flowers

Julie and Apryl were kind enough to let me stop by their Reading studio last week to witness their creative process. We worked on two weddings together last year, and both events had some of the most beautiful, distinct floral pieces I had seen all season. The two love flowers and clearly enjoy working with each other.

They were kind enough to send me home with some beautiful flowers wrapped in brown paper. It was a big hit with Brooke. Thanks Julie and Apryl!

Indian Dance Workshop

Tara and Mike's wedding was the second I shot after moving to Boston. It was a beautiful, intimate backyard wedding in August of 2007. I had a lot of fun getting to know them, which is why I was excited when Tara asked if I would be interested in taking some photos of her leading an Indian dance workshop last weekend.

Tara is very talented and seeing her dance is a treat. I learned that all the intricate body and hand movements contribute to the beautiful telling of a story. If you're interested in learning more, check out Tara's website:

Hair Trial

Last night I accompanied Brooke to her hair trial with Sally at the Louis Anthony Hair Salon in Quincy. Apparently grooms don't usually tag along to such things, but everyone was very welcoming.

It was just an experimental walk-through, but Brooke seemed very pleased. Sally was delightful and will definitely be a positive energy on the wedding day. And I think even seeing a rough version of her wedding day hair-style got Brooke excited. She couldn't stop checking herself out in the mirror.

Friends of St. Stans

In between wedding business planning I've been fortunate to pick up some good editorial assignments. On Sunday TIME sent me to cover an interesting story in Adams, MA. There's a link to a web-gallery at the end of the story.

Welcome to the Future

Before Christmas I picked up a fun assignment to photograph three fascinating people for FLYP's "Future" issue. I got to listen in on interviews with Juan Enriquez, Ray Kurzweil and Andrew Bacevich.

Here's hoping genius is contagious.
