Destination Weddings

The Knot: The Summer Issue Photo Feature

When I photographed Erica Diermerier and Steve Rivera's wedding I knew the photographs would turn out lovely.  Erica was sweet and beautiful, and the arbor that the Ritz Carlton had created for her was beautifully covered in orchids that had a subtle beauty to it that I fell in love with.  When I was taking this image I knew that I was creating the most angelic image that I had ever created. 

So happy that Rebecca Crumley from The Knot loved the image too. 



Destination W

A few months ago Kristi Drago, my friend and previous photo editor at Brides, contacted me about a project she was working on with Sally Kilbridge, another former editor at Brides Magazine.  Although my images were published in Brides for over a decade I had never met Sally.  She was starting a destination wedding blog called Destination W and Kristi was looking for some beautiful destination weddings.  They chose one that I had shot in Portugal, one of my favorite and overlooked countries, designed by ladies at The Wedding Co..

After the launch of the site I got in touch with Sally about writing a blog for the site on a regular basis.  I love photographing weddings, especially destination weddings and want to share some of my experience in order to make it easier for brides to choose a destination wedding photographer.  She loved the idea and that I hope started the beginning of a another long relationship. 

In April Sally posted a couple of the blogs I proposed, after she did a much needed edit on the writing.  If you or someone you know is planning a destination wedding you may want to take a look at the posts for some helpful insights on hiring a wedding photographer.
