I was so thrilled to be back at the Morven Museum and Garden in Princeton, NJ for wedding. I adore my Morven Museum weddings. So rich in history, Morven dates back to Revolutionary War times with such notable residents as Richard Stockton, signer of the Declaration of Independence. For many years Morven was the New Jersey governors residence. Ellen could not have chosen a more perfect setting for their late Spring wedding. The beauty of the mature gardens served as a beautiful backdrop for their long awaited day. Ellen said that peonies were her favorite flower and they were in full bloom in the gardens on their wedding day! Best wishes Ellen and Kevin.
I have been so totally absorbed in the most fabulous work this Spring, from commercial editorial shoots to my beloved wedding. My head has been spinning with joy but I have been remiss in sharing some of my work on my blog. Don’t worry, I will be catching up! I wanted to share this extraordinary shoot I did at the iconic Philadelphia Museum of Art. The Museum is e offering the interior of the museum for weddings. I could not be more excited and I have already been commissioned to photograph a wedding there next Spring! I am counting the days! For those of you who are interested in a real fine art wedding this is definitely a Philadelphia venue to explore!

Shelly and Clint will be getting married in South Korea next month but they wanted portraits on the campus of Princeton University, the place where they met. So many wonderful memories. Have a beautiful wedding day Shelly and Clint!
On my recent trip to Spain I certainly could not resist attending a flamenco show.It is a music native to the Spanish regions of Andalusia, Extremadura and Murcia. It includes singing,guitar playing, dance, hand clapping, table banging and finger snapping. I have always adored the haunting and sensual sounds of Flamenco and have been a big fan of the Gypsy Kings. Seeing it performed st the Cardamomo Tablao Flamenco, in a dark intimate room, with the dance, Spanish guitars and hand clapping was just exhilarating! It is a not miss when you next venture to Spain! It was the fell of Spain and it’a people!
As many of you may already know, travel is one of my many passions. I recently returned from a 2 week excursion to northern Spain. My very first to this region. A true highlight of my visit to Barcelona was to finally see the famed Sagrada Familia, designed by Spanish architect Antoni Gaudí . Construction began on the Roman Catholic Basílica in 1882 and continues to this day. It appears that the interior of the Basílica is complete with the instillation of the grandest stained glass windows I have ever seen. They say that the exterior spires might be completed within 10 years. I’ll definitely have to go back. I arrived at the perfect time of day as the setting sun was low in the sky and created the most fabulous light show streaming through all the colored windows!
