DC Letterpress House: Typecase Industries

Monday, April 21, 2014 | Interesting People of DC

I recently hired the talented, DC-based Typecase Industries to help create a special letterpressed brochure for wedding clients. (I also snapped a few photos for them posted here as they get ready for the National Stationary Show!) In addition to doing custom letterpress for weddings, social events, restaurants and just about anything else, they have a line of very sassy cards...

weddings on 35mm

Thursday, April 3, 2014 | Behind the Scenes

One of my favorite cameras is the 35mm. Yep, the little rolls of film we all used when we were kids. I still love the classic/timeless/emotionally driven results! For weddings, I love using black and white. Here's a few of my favorites and if you're inspired, pull one out and give it go. (I get my film developed at Fast Foto and Digital.)

Lislie and Stu

Tuesday, April 1, 2014 | Weddings

Lislie and Stu's destination wedding in Mexico was relaxed, hip and full of love, friends and family. She's a shoe designer at Derek Lam. He's a Grammy nominated sound engineer whose latest project (just a little artist named Beyonce) went straight to number one. The couple planned their wedding their own way and their talented (and fashionable) friends made it oh so personal:

Ceremony & Reception: Garza Blanca Resort
Wedding Dress: Created by a friend of the bride, Lee Ma, who works at an atelier
Evening Dress: Custom made for Lislie by Derek Lam
Shoes: Lislie designed them for Derek Lam's spring 2014 runway show
Bridesmaids Dresses: Designed by Lislie's friend Vee Lapnarongchai, who has his own knitwear based line SVEE
Hair and Make up: bridesmaid Kalam
Music: groom's custom playlist
Calligraphy: bridesmaid Kalo
Piñata favors: painstakingly made by the bride in her NYC apartment
Wedding Band: custom design from friend and guest, Jayce Wong
Floral Design: Cristhian Rios

The Pescetarian Plan

Monday, March 31, 2014 | Published

I recently photographed recipes for an amazing book called The Pescetarian Plan by Janis Jibrin and Sidra Forman. Our goal for the look of the food was for it to be not stylized with props, but instead use the texture, colors and simple, natural ingredients of the food to draw you in. There is a mix of side dishes, fish recipes and yummy desserts--even cupcakes to try out. I personally loved reading it, I learned a lot and I highly recommend it. You can find the book on Amazon or follow it on Facebook.
