I always love seeing what Bella Figura comes out with…for 2009, they enlisted some great new talent like Tara Hogan of Ink+Wit and Ben Whitla to design some totally hip invitations! You get awesome designs, but the same committment to the environmnt…its a win-win! To celebrate, they’ve asked a few bloggers (me included) to pick our fav 5 as sample packs. From now until January 23, you can pick up a sample pack for the reduced price of $10 and feel good knowing that 100% of that will go to charity.
I’m also excited to show you a new design that I helped inspire…called Dewdrop, its a wonderfully modern invitation that I think really embodies what Brooklyn Bride is all about. Its included in my curated sample pack, so feel free to order yourself a sample!

Hey everyone! Welcome to 2009! I’m so excited to be back blogging…hopefully the holidays have been as relaxing to you as they were to me… We started off our Christmas down in Louisiana with Chad’s family, then headed back for a week of quasi-relaxation….I spent most of my days in front of the laptop getting some exciting stuff together for Brooklyn Bride, but worked in some time with friends too.
So, to start this week off, lots of fun things that got started in 2008, but have flourished in 2009… stay tuned.

I love what I do. My goal as a wedding photographer is to bring that enthusiasm, creativity, and vision to every event. My style is best described as a mixture of documentary and editorial style photography, stemming from my early experience documenting blues and jazz musicians in the Mississippi Delta, and my recent experience obtaining my MFA in Photography at Parsons School of Design. The result is a collection of wedding photographs with beautiful, creative formal shots coupled with special moments and spontaneous candids. My desire is to capture the character and spirit of each couple I work with and provide them with images they will cherish always.

I wish I could send all of you a personal card right to your doorstep, but hopefully this will do! Here are some of the amazing cards I received for the Holiday Card Swap…I couldn’t believe how fun they were! Some of you even went above and beyond and sent presents and delicious treats! Next year we might have to up the anty and do a recipe swap or ornament swap….:)
I’ll be taking a little blog break to work on some fun things I have in store for January, so until then….see you in 2009! Have a wonderful holiday!
