“The evening was as lovely as she. As the warm Summer sun dipped below the horizon, a golden glow enveloped the dusk. She was luminous, seductively ethereal in the dying light of day. Costumed in delicate lace, she moved with an untroubled ease that suggested contentment. She wore a soft smile on her lips yet behind her fixed gaze, fleeting moments of truth emerged. Her mind was elsewhere, recalling with fondness a memory of him.”

(Image 2 of 3) This image was in the neighborhood of 6 hours I believe.
I spent about a week in the Rooms Hotel in Kazbegi Georgia last Fall. The hotel is amazing, most rooms have a balcony that face Mt Kazbegi and the Trinity Church.
Every night I set up both of my Hasselblads and made exposures from 1 hour to about 9 hours. The nice thing about the Hasselblad 500 c/m cameras is that they are completely mechanical…a dream for shooting long exposures.
Of the roughly 20 exposures I made while there, only about 6 came out, of those these 3 were the best.
The one and only Monemvasia. If you’re a photographer and dream of shooting in places like this, join us this September for an intensive, retreat style workshop! Head over to @bohemeworkshops for more details, early bird registration is open! #bohemeworkshopsgreece
When it comes to styling elements there's always an amazing structure that follows. Definitely one of the more understated elements of wedding photography. Timeless & Beautiful execution by @jenniferlauradesign
I’ve been thinking about weddings as a whole recently.
About the things that are trendy, things that are old traditions, and all the little details in between.
I’ve been thinking about my wedding that was almost 10 years ago, too. About how UNtraditional it was in many ways, but even then, how when you get down to the nitty-gritty it wasn’t that different at all...(Stephen and I eloped to Hawaii. We woke up together on our wedding day, got ready together, then drove to the beach where we met a barefoot minister who brought my bouquet, our fresh orchid leis, our “photographer”, and our vows🙈.)
Even after all these years, there is very, very little that I would change about that day.
My hope for all the brides planning their weddings in an Instagram world is that they truly focus on making their day about them and their families. While I love a beautiful event as much as anyone, it’s important sometimes to take a step back and try to think about what is really going to matter when you look back on your day in 10, 20, and 50 years from now.
Any married ladies out there willing to speak up about what (if anything) they wish they’d done differently on their wedding day? I’ll go first:
I wish I had a better photographer...bet y’all could’ve guessed I’d say that huh? But it’s so truuuuue!

We are ironing out all the details for the styled shoot at our Lighting Intensive Workshop on April 14th and I’m getting so excited! It’s so fun to dream up pretty little details and pretend I’m getting married all over again. 😉 Our 10th anniversary is this year so my dream of a vow renewal doesn’t seem so far off - does it?! 🤣
We still have a few seats left to the workshop and early bird rates are good through February - so snag yours before they are gone!!! All the details are in the link in my profile!! 🙌🏼♥️ Florals by @thepetalfloraldesign 😍 #ctpworkshops#ctpfilm#richardphotolab#mamiya645#porta
So come with me where dreams are born and time is never planned. Just think of happy things and your heart will fly on wings forever. - Peter Pan

Stepping back, putting some distance between you and your subject, (also a great way to get a little texture in the foreground) can really help someone who is not always in front of the camera forget you are there for a minute, in turn helping them to relax a little bit! Not that Nina had trouble with that however!! Loving the light this day over at @pippinhillfarm with
I’ve been taking an average of one roll of film at all my sessions lately. This newborn session in particular turned out SO dreamy. The light in the nursery falling on this sweet baby girl in her crib was so beautiful. I wish I could share 100 film scans with y’all all at once! 🥰

“One cannot think well, love well, sleep well if one has not dined well...” — Virginia Woolf
Boy, it always comes back to Virginia Woolf with me doesn’t it? Just a quick sales-pitchy post to let you know that time and spaces are running out for FEAST, my cheese and charcuterie photography workshop on March 2. In the past I’ve been able to be fairly freewheeling about holding spaces and taking payment for my workshops, but due to the nature of the day and the materials involved, I will need to process all spots through my website. You can find additional details in the link in my profile, and always, shoot me any questions you may have.
After my weekend of teaching, I’m more excited than ever about FEAST. I mean, cheese board, hello? But watching communities form before my eyes is what really thrills me, and I can’t wait to do it again. Happy Monday, y’all. #foodphotography#photographyteacher
