26,280 hours; 1,095 days; 3 years.  However you count it, I'm excited to celebrate three years of marriage today with my wife.


I still remember so much about that day.  My most vivid memory is seeing my bride for the first time.  I will never forget the way she looked in that dress she designed, her smile that actually made her glow, the mist turning to rain and then eventually flooding the streets that January day in New Orleans. Many hours have passed since that day, but I find myself loving her more and more than the last. 

I love you D.


Now to catch you guys up on life lately...

We have had the pleasure of photographing some of the most gorgeous weddings this summer and fall.  They will be on my new website and blog soon, but a preview of it all will be shared on this blog first, so check back in the days to come!

After a wonderful trip down south to see our families for the holidays, we spent our first Christmas in manhattan.  The next day we woke up and flew to St. Maarten to shoot a great wedding (and have some R&R time as well).  The beaches in St. Maarten and St. Barths are beautiful and I cannot wait to return one day!

photo 1.JPGphoto.JPGWe got back and spent all day yesterday in our wonderful city and even a walk in the park with hot chocolate and hot apple cider to keep us warm.  We had dinner in Harlem at the Red Rooster to celebrate our anniversary and it was DELICIOUS!


After dinner we headed down to 5th Ave to take in the windows and the holiday cheer one last time before the city starts to take it all down....DOES IT REALLY HAVE TO END????

This morning we woke up for some early ice-skating in Bryant park!

A few weeks ago I was once again blessed to be able to photograph my absolute favorite person.  My beautiful wife is getting ready to launch her new website with an e-commerce store and fancy new blog, and wanted to get a few photos to use on the site.  If you can't tell I'm so incredibly proud of her with all that she has achieved, all of the dreams that will one day become a reality, and her passion for life. 

Photographing Dara is absolutely the easiest assignment I ever have. She is such a natural in front of the camera.  After photographing many people, and models, I'm still amazed at just how effortless she is when I see her through my viewfinder.  Dara was the person that encouraged me to chase my passion of photographing people, and was always my test subject as I practiced and developed my style.  I still don't get tired of getting her in front of my camera.                                            

I remember the first time I met a girl named Dara Kent when we were both 16.  She had this beautiful red lipstick and I knew that she was a special girl (for many reason).  Almost 10 years later that beautiful girl is now my gorgeous wife, Dara has a new (hyphenated) last name, and though the shades have changed through seasons and trends she is still wearing her signature red lips. 

I am a very lucky guy to have her in my life.

Go see her blog for even more from this shoot!.


I absolutely love photographing weddings as well as editorial and advertising work.  A few months back I was asked to photograph the twobirds bridesmaid ad campaign, which was so much fun to work with their wonderful team.  Collaborating along with my great friends Jacqueline Weppner of Merci New York for styling as well as Linsey with Facetime Beauty Concierge for hair and makeup, made for a great day of shooting.

I photographed several looks of these beautiful bridesmaid dresses with my favorite look appearing in the current issue of Martha Stewart Weddings. martha-stewart-300x400.jpgDSC_2852-edit.jpgDSC_2745.jpg
