An hour with Enen
Wedding day at the Wythe Hotel in Brooklyn, New York.Read More
My friend Jamie Davis, culinary prodigy, head chef at Birdhouse Friend Chicken, and Cafe Berlin, put together a special event for foodies and farmers alike. His most recent popup, Table2Farm, brought the farm table, the carefully prepared ingredients, and the culinary tools to the source of many ingredients found in the delicious food at Cafe B; Three Creeks Produce in Boone County, Mo.
Decorated with fresh cut flowers from Three Creeks, the wine glasses were filled with each new course presented to the table. The Table2Farm dinner lasted well after the sun went down.
It was so much fun to bring a handful of my passions together while documenting this event, as well as enjoy watching the success of my friends.
Nina and Josh's families were so kind, hospitable and fun on their wedding day. Everyone was at ease and enjoying the day for what it was, a celebration.
It was a special treat to be able to watch Nina's grandmother, aunts and cousins all help put beautiful, traditional sarees on any of Nina's girlfriends that wanted one. These beautiful fabrics were woven with gold and glittered in the sun.
Thank you to Christian Gideon for asking me to work alongside you again. We really know how to knock a wedding out of the park.
Molly had a beautiful backyard wedding in Missouri, complete with lights hanging from the trees and a dance floor in the middle of the yard, under the sky. Before all of the festivities, the bridal shower, the rehearsal dinner and the toasts, Molly asked me to take bridal portraits of her in her mother's wedding dress.
We kept the surprise from her mom and took the photos while she was running errands. I only wish I could see the surprise on her face when she sees her daughter wearing her very own wedding dress in the state they both hold so close to their hearts. This dress is what timeless fashion looks like and Molly makes it look even better with her simple and elegant style.
For all of the jitters Jason and Caitlin may have had starting their session, the more they looked into each others eyes, the more comfortable they became. They met each other by doing the exact same thing.
Jason and Caitlin's relationship began when they found each other on the subway and looked into each others eyes. They are great reminder that speaking is not always the most powerful form of communication -- sometimes a little eye contact is far more powerful.
I took a walk with my friend Ames when the flowers were blooming. Spending time in the sunlight is healing and that's exactly what we did.
A quote that has captured my thoughts:
"We cannot change, we cannot move away from what we are, until we thoroughly accept what we are. Then change seems to come about almost unnoticed."
-- Carl Rogers, On Becoming A Person
Earlier this year, when it was warm and there was ice in our coffee orders, I got to work alongside the extremely talented Christian Gideon once more. This beautiful couple celebrated their marriage in the heart of Madison, Wis. It was a joy.
I love weddings. Everyone reveling in love and happiness, looking their best and smiling is an infectious energy. Being surrounded by this excitement, I like to try and capture the in-between moments. Aimee and Chase made it easy. Congratulations, again!
This summer I drove to California by myself to work and live in Yosemite National Park. Heading out West alone to drive for three days on beautiful and empty highways was one of the most liberating and risky things I've ever done. I would never go back to change a single moment. Some of my work living in Yosemite Valley and traveling to the iconic park was featured on the Tsunami and Avalanche Journal. I can hardly believe my name is featured with the likes of the amazing work on the T&A Journal. It's an honor and incredibly encouraging.
