meghan + jim :: married!

charm city lovefest!


meghan + jim :: married! baltimore, maryland.

i believe that being asked to photograph any wedding is a privilege, but it is undeniably special to capture that day for a fellow photographer. while many of my clients are artists, meghan is a wedding photographer (in addition to a brilliant lawyer) and the fact that she chose me to be part of her celebration filled me with honor + excitement — she traded her camera for a bouquet and trusted me to document her wedding — i was absolutely flattered and, to be honest, a little flustered all at once!

i met meghan + jim in the fall of 2009 for a lifestyle session (the original ‘charm city lovefest’ even before they were engaged) and i instantly loved everything about this couple. they were so happy and relaxed, such a wonderful complement to one another. as we’ve become friends, i realize that that’s what makes them so special — that they are simply + profoundly happy together. and while that might seem like a given for all couples, i have found that is truly a rare and wonderful thing to behold. i love nothing more than being in the presence of people who are happy, people who love freely and openly, people who take nothing for granted. and if i were to describe meghan + jim’s love in just one word, that word would be genuine. sheer joy radiates from this couple, filling the space in between, and spilling out onto everyone that they love and that loves them. when i look at the photo above that’s the first thing i see — the love in the space between them.

meghan + jim :: congrats! all my love to you both!

enjoy!

hey hon!


charlene osborne, bawlmer’s best hon 2009  :: about faces day spa – towson, md.

baltimore’s best hon 2009 is hoping to snag the title of best new author in 2010! i was very excited to see the fabulous charlene last week and photograph her in all her hon glory for her upcoming book, due out in time for this year’s honfest! based on her life and experiences as a hon, the book features her writing along with stunning images from the year’s highlights, taken by her favorite photographers. i’m honored to be among the list – getting to know charlene has been a wonderful delight. she is an amazing & effervescent person and it’s a thrill simply being around her. i can say with conviction that she has truly embraced her hon character and represented baltimore to the fullest this last year and i can’t wait to see & read her book!

congratulations charlene!

the return of the pink flamingo.

giving b’more the bird.


the big pink bird once again adorns the exterior of the beloved cafe hon.

last night i attended the awesome pink flamingo re-release at cafe hon in hampden, one of my favorite baltimore neighborhoods! after much controversy, the iconic pink bird was re-affixed to the cafe’s facade, after a short-lived hiatus, looking more fabulous than ever! cafe hon owner denise whiting welcomed the crowd – a sea of excited faces draped in pink boas and waving plastic pink flamingoes – and led everyone in the pledge of allegiance and the flamingo dance! whiting then introduced mayor sheila dixon who did the honors – tugging on a feathered boa which dropped the large tarp and unveiled the shiny new bird. the ever-amazing charlene osborne – baltimore’s best hon 2009 – was present in all her hon glory, posing for her adoring fans and spreading her fantastic energy.

it was a hontastic celebration and media frenzy and i loved being a part of it! oh yeah, and afterwards john waters gave me a hug outside of rocket to venus. it doesn’t get any more bawlmer than that, hon.

enjoy!


flamingo power. like flower power, but pinker. and more radical.
