Parkway Bakery – A portrait of the chef

Who here watches “Chopped” on the Food Network? There have been a handful of chefs from New Orleans compete on the show and by assignment or accident, I’ve photographed at least three or four of them. Parkway Bakery and Tavern is a well known place to grab a po-boy, and their chef, Justin Kennedy, was a contestant on Chopped that I went to photograph for an ad. I had totally forgotten that somebody from Parkway had been on the show when I got there, but as soon as I saw him I did one of those “hey, I recognize you!” jumps. He was a super nice guy, and makes a mean po-boy.

Jing and Andy’s Wedding at the Venue at Corazon

Jing and Andy brought Chinese and Vietnamese traditions under a single roof at the Venue at Corazon. With multiple outfit changes, the tea ceremony, and a trip around to all the guests for entertaining table toasts, this is just the sort of thing I love to photograph! You couldn’t ask for a more perfect July day for a wedding. And as a bonus it was my birthday, so I got to have especially fancy cake .:)

Congrats to Jing and Andy!

Talia and Jeremy’s Wedding at the Greek Orthodox Cathedral in Columbus

What can I say about Talia and Jeremy? Even if I weren’t biased because we’re long-time friends, I’d still say that they had one of the most fun weddings I’ve ever been to. Smiles were turning into tears and back into smiles all day. The ceremony and reception all took place at the Greek Orthodox church, which boasts a beautiful banquet hall in addition to the cathedral.  It was my first Greek wedding and I hope to see more.  Even this non-dancing camera guy ended up hand in hand and dancing in a circle by the end of the night.

A big congrats to Talia and Jeremy!

Reed and Sara’s Wedding at Little Brooke Meadows

Part of what I love about my job is catching people at points in their lives when lots of exciting things are going on.  Reed and Sara both graduated from pharmacy school shortly before the wedding, and shortly after, they headed off to Alaska to start their professional lives. I was thrilled to spend a day photographing their wedding at Little Brook Meadows before they headed north.  It was a gorgeous venue filled with a great group of people.

Congrats to Reed and Sara!
