My Inner Circle

My People are the Best People. Join my Inner Circle and I'll personally send you occasional notes about the incredible humans I photograph, reflections about connection, vulnerability and love, and other things that I'm thinking about.

Bonus: My Inner Circle is my sounding board for new and scary ideas, and the first to hear when I open up something new, or travel to your neck of the woods...

Sunny and Nick

Sunny and Nick love their communities, they love the earth, they love being huge nerds, they love extending kindness to humans and animals, and they love each other. They’re best friends and more. That’s why they decided to have a big, multicultural wedding featuring all their loved ones glamping in the cabins at Cama Beach State Park, on beautiful Camano Island just outside Seattle. Beginning with a morning South Indian Vedic (Hindu) Ceremony, leading to afternoon chai and cake, then off to an evening Vow ceremony, and ending with dancing led by that ever-so-infamous DJ Spotify (and a lovely friend that made sure things ran smoothly on the playlist).

My favorite thing about multicultural, multi-ceremony weddings is the way that communities come together in a genuinely tangible way, the ways that pieces of my couples’ identities are highlighted throughout the day in different ways, and the threads that run through all of it. And I’m of South Indian descent, so when I get to document Indian ceremonies, I also take particular joy in getting to share in the traditions that are so very, very familiar to me. Eliot gets nostalgic, too.

…Now Dogs,
Dogs say I love you constantly
and every day.
They are the best of us, covered in fur.
But today, the day of your wedding,
Socrates doesn’t poop in the aisle
and if that isn’t love, I don’t know what is.
And he spent the day wandering
with a cheery grin and slightly manic eyes,
because dogs may not understand all our goings-ons
but they sure do understand what happiness feels like.

You know,
I don't even care how I look.

Kelly commented, when I said she looked beautiful.
Which, of course, made her ludicrously, effortlessly stunning
in her simple white dress
that she pulled on
by herself
in the bathroom
by herself
after steaming it
herself
while taking a few moments
to herself.

Susan and Janine: A Homegrown Wedding

"Have you ever done a wedding held in someone's house? Is this ever done?" Janine asked me (with a slight tone of worry) as we Skyped a few months before their wedding.

Lindsay and Richard: Doing Joy Their Own Way - an authentic, DIY, doughnut-filled wedding at the Lake Mohawk Country Club

Now, when professional performers get married, things can go one of two ways - they either find it hard to shut down their "performance" side, or they actively work to make sure that their wedding does not feel like another performance in a life of performance-based work. Lindsay and Richard chose that second option.

From celebrating other family members birthdays and anniversaries, to delighting over a handmade paper doughnut topper, these two kept it relaxed and joyful the whole entire time.

Amy and Greg: A Heartfelt Community Wedding in Charlemont, MA

People are really into "adult-only" weddings these days. After all, kids are disruptive to the "perfect day." They destroy any illusions of perfection. They force us to improvise. They blow through the best-laid plans. They have meltdowns and needs. They giggle, they play. They hang on glass doors wearing their best shirts. They are so...utterly...unabashedly human.

Amy and Greg aren't afraid of human. They didn't want a wedding that felt like a sterile escape from the things that make life full - they wanted one that would celebrate all those things. Community, family, friendship and love.
