It’s just about the flowers

I have been wanting to do a post about flowers for a while. When I shoot weddings the main focus is on the couple of course, but I always have one eye on the flowers, and just love the variety and seasonal arrangements that are even better than the next. If I use them as props for ring shots or just backgrounds for albums, it really doesn’t matter, they just look incredible and I just LOVE to photograph them. These are just a few of my favorites from recent weddings and I can’t wait to see what this next season brings!

Derrick Jackson speaking at exhibit

I was privileged to meet Boston Globe Op-Ed columnist Derrick Jackson last night while shooting his photography exhibit at MCLA (http://www.MCLA.edu). Proceeds from the event benefited mulicultural programs and scholarships. He claims photography is a hobby, but I would pit his photography against any professional photographer out there. I was truly inspired to pursue more wildlife photography after viewing his work. His press credentials with the Globe allows access to political and sporting events that give him some enviable angles at events and his natural eye and talent are clear in his work. His Obama Inaugural and campaign photos are extraordinary.
