Before I knew it, I was heading towards Hollywood to photograph Christoph Waltz, two-time Oscar winner, for a ceremony where he would receive the 2536th star at the Hollywood Walk of Fame. However, my role photographing this was directly for Christoph Waltz as well as the parent company of his recent film, The Weinstein Company. In the three hours I was shooting the ceremony and luncheon at Musso and Franks, my newspaper and magazine expertise has never come in this handy since migrating over to the event and party industry 14 years ago.
Ending my wedding season at this gorgeous wedding in the Tuscon Saguaro National Park Ritz-Carlton, Dove Mountain was like a dream come true. I love the desert. Obsessed with the desert. But I am not the only one who is obsessed with the dry, arid landscapes. My bride and groom, Amy and JD, are obsessed as well.
We are rolling out another gay wedding at the Blackstone Hotel this week! And while I never play favorites because it devalues my other client’s event, I am going to break those rules this time around. And for good reason. Please, keep reading.
This Naples, Florida wedding at the Ritz Carlton is so special and exciting to share. My client, Katie and Tim, found my work one evening while searching the web for decor from Ritz events. While they loved the decor from that one wedding, I happened to photograph that specific wedding.
Mara and Joshua booked me through their mother, via an email, as a referral from Beth Bernstein of SQN Events. Are you following still? They trusted Beth, loved the work they saw on my web site and booked sight unseen. When I showed up to the wedding, I had never met the client nor the families. That is a little unusual for me, but growing more common.
