This year I had a lot of great opportunities to take pictures of kids. I traveled to Florida, California, Pennsylvania and more, photographing children from 4 years up through college. Here's some of the younger set. More of the older guys later...
Below are some pictures from Emily Simoness and Michael Chernus's wedding. I met these guys a couple of years ago when I photographed their very cool project at Ryder Farms in Brewster, NY for the Wall Street Journal. Ryder Farm has been in Emily's family since 1795 and a few years ago Emily got involved and decided that she wanted to figure out a way to wind her background in acting and performance into the mission of the farm. And so it went from being a CSA growing vegetables to one that also supports artists and writers through a residency program.
Their wedding was lovely. It doesn't hurt to have an incredibly talented playwright (Max Posner) perform your ceremony. I had never heard of Max before the wedding but I will watch out, with anticipation, for his work now. It's not surprising that I hadn't heard of him as I live a little bit under a rock. I am embarrassed to say that I didn't do any research about Michael before the wedding, though I knew he was an actor, and last week while flipping through the limited channels of airplane TV, I was thrilled to see that one of the Bourne movies was on. I really love those movies. And there was Michael (and several other of the wedding guests that I had thought looked suspiciously familiar at the time.) I guess it's good that I didn't know beforehand or I would have been nervous. : )
Oh, and the dress! I almost forgot to mention that the gorgeous dress was designed by http://www.danielvosovicny.com.
