Nick and Michelle’s Wedding at the House of Blues

Nick and Michelle are good friends from my New Orleans days, so I was thrilled to make the trip up to Cleveland to shoot their wedding at the House of Blues.  It was such a fantastic day all around, with good people, great game faces, and some impressive Michael Jackson dance moves.  I’m so happy to have been a part of this and to have these two back in Ohio!

Congrats to Nick and Michelle!

Kate and Shane’s Wedding at St. Agatha

I got to spend the first day of August with Kate and Shane for their beautiful wedding at St. Agatha. The rain clouds cleared out to let us do pictures outside with the ladies before heading off to meet the guys at Hudson 29, where we took over the front of the restaurant for an impromptu but oh-so-classy photo shoot.:) After a lovely first look in St. Agatha’s secret garden, we went inside for the ceremony and following reception.  It was a great night with a great group of people!

A big congrats to Kate and Shane!

Columbus Color Run

I love getting to shoot all sorts of different events, so when a last minute opportunity to run a studio station at a Color Run opened up, I jumped in. Basically I got to photograph group after group of elated runners, all dressed up and covered in colored powders. I’d get them to pose or jump or do otherwise silly things to have fun.  It was a ton of fun to shoot!  Here are just a few of the jumping pictures from the morning.

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!
