Martha Stewart Weddings, Part 2

Here is the second feature from the current issue of Martha Stewart Weddings. This is their destination issue and it’s loaded with great stuff! The first feature from St Barts is down below this post. This second wedding took place in Port Clyde Maine and if you’re a movie buff you will recognize the lighthouse from Forrest Gump. In the movie it is the eastern point he runs to when he is traveling across country and the lighthouse is only seconds away from the beautiful property the wedding was held on. Our fantastic clients, Maggie and Jason, were married at Maggie’s family home. The home used to be part of a sardine factory. The factory burned down years ago but the dock and house still remain. You will notice a few sardine logos down below. These images are taken from the old factory's actual sardine tins. Lisa Vorce and Mindy Rice put this amazing event together and very cleverly built my all time favorite seating card installation. It’s made completely out of lobster traps! Another favorite of mine was the ceremony get away. Maggie and Jason exited their ceremony via the family lobster boat (named after the bride and her sister) and returned a bit later to join the party. It was really sweet and personal. I had so much fun photographing this wedding! Many, many thanks to Maggie and Jason (super wonderful people to be around) and to Lisa Vorce and Mindy Rice for always putting together such amazing events. A huge thanks as well to Martha Stewart Weddings. Make sure you pick up a copy of the latest issue!

Martha Stewart Weddings, Part 1

We have two features in the current issue of Martha Stewart Weddings. This is their destination issue. I will post the second feature in a few days but first this fantastic event for Damita and Dylan put together by Lisa Vorce and Mindy Rice in St Barthelemy, French West Indies. St Barts really needs no introduction. It was so much fun to shoot there and despite intermittent rain, everything came together really well. Lisa and Mindy transformed a tiny little beach shack into an amazing ceremony spot on the east end of the island. A very different approach than we normally see with the ocean in that they did not face it. It worked really well. Damita and Dylan only had about 30 guests so the amazing La Banane hotel, close to the center of town, was the perfect venue for the reception. It’s a tiny little spot but such an incredibly perfect canvas to produce an event unlike anything else I have seen down in the Caribbean. Many thanks to Damita and Dylan. They were such fantastic people to be around and really easy to photograph. Thanks as well to Lisa and Mindy for delivering totally unique and inspired events every single time. Lastly I would like to thank Martha Stewart Weddings. They have continued year after year to showcase our work in such a beautiful way. I really can’t thank them enough. They are amazing people and I am so lucky to be featured so often. Make sure and pick up the current issue!

C Weddings, Fall 2012

Super happy to have two stories in C Weddings current issue. It is such a beautiful magazine and my thanks to everyone there for their amazing talent. They are so consistent from issue to issue! The first story is a little piece about the work Lisa Vorce, Mindy Rice, and I do with destination weddings worldwide. The other is continuing coverage of Zacatecas Mexico. Regina and Zaheen’s wedding really seems to resonate with people. It continues to be one of the weddings I am asked about most.
