The Bachelorette Weekend

It’s been weighing on my mind that I have not blogged in hmm a year. I have had many amazing experiences in the mean time, including incredible weddings, surviving Mardi Gras, volunteering in Nicaragua and traveling to Cuba, but somehow I could not get myself to log onto WordPress to digitally record and reflect on…

Vermont Spring Wedding

Fall is almost here. I have been delayed in my blogging. Regardless, revisiting this wedding months brought me back to what an awesome day it was. Sarah and Tyler’s wedding was at Hotel Vermont. It was a smaller wedding, that included a a swanky urban, rooftop ceremony, an amazing farm-to-table family style meal, heartfelt, intimate…

4.1.17 A Vermont White Wedding

An April wedding in Vermont can be a tricky one. Many people don’t know this, but Vermont actually has five seasons. The fifth is wedged between winter and spring. Its called mud season. It is caused by the intense thawing of the snow and land and creates obscene amounts of mud. People get stuck in roads,…

3.29.17 Women Refugee Route Part 2: Lesvos

We had our final meal in Athens of 2 euro gyros and boarded a massive ferry at 9 pm on Sunday night, headed into the dark waves of the Mediterranean. We bought one sleeper ticket, banking on there being empty beds to be had once we had key access.  Each dorm room on the ship…

3.20.17 Women Refugee Route/connection makes the world beautiful

Last month, I found myself in Athens with an amazing, empowering group of ladies from all over Europe and beyond, working together to make an impact on one of the most vulnerable groups in the refugee crisis, women. How did I get here? One of my closest friends, Lizzy, took a sabbatical from her job at…

3.5.17 Stockholm, you are lovely

Recently, on a trip to Europe, I got to swoop in for a weekend to Stockholm and visit one of my best friends in the world! Emily and I have known each other since modified soccer tryouts. One of us was cut… Thankfully the emotional wounds of middle school eventually heal, and the rejection made…

1.15.17 Nicaragua: Adventure and Amor

17As we drove through the dystopian industrial wasteland of New York/New Jersey to Newark Airport,  the sun had not yet risen.  At 5:30 am there was already traffic, and the ambient light mixed with the fog/steam/smog gave everything an oppressive, reddish glow.  It was pretty grim. However, we were about to travel to another world! After…

12/29/16 Mike and Denise – Philly Love

Over the holidays, during a morning of extreme rain, wind and waves, I photographed Denise and Mike’s engagement photos in Skaneateles, NY. I know Denise from high school, but hadn’t seen her in years, so it was really great to reconnect, and see what she has been up to and how she has been doing. Official…

12.24.16 Desert Bat Mitzvah

Rona is my fiancé’s  younger cousin. She is bright, passionate and extremely empathetic. She is one of those people who can connect with individuals of all ages, even as a child. I consider her a friend and she is 12. Her family moved to Tucson three years ago, and the move has not been the easiest on the…

12.26.16 It All Started with a Smile

Over the holidays, I had the honor of photographing one of my best friend’s engagement photos in our home town of Skaneateles, NY. We squeezed them in Christmas Eve, and even had time to grab a drink at the pub (shout out to Mr. Gregg for buying me a round!) I love being in my…

12.5 Running for the Wine

To exercise, or to drink wine/party with friends? Why not both, they asked. I am a big advocate in blending workouts into your daily activities, whether its running to pick up groceries, or riding your bike to a concert, it makes it easier to keep active when working out isn’t an isolated activity that automatically…
