What happens when an art nerd shoots a wedding...

Nelly & Jim made one of the cutest couples! They're very unique and it showed through all of the choices they made for their wedding... down to the peacock feathers! They were one of those great couples who let me take a ton of great shots - just the two of them. And, as I came up the stairs I said to my assistant Lynn, (also an art nerd) "Do you see that mirror? It looks like..." She jumps in with " that Van Eyck painting?" Same thought. Now there's a great assistant! Lucky for me Nelly & Jim were happy to play along. What do you think of my art-inspired shot?


To make it easy for you here's the painting Lynn & I were thinking about...

The happiest thing for a wedding photographer...

My comment may sound cheesy - but I really mean it! I take my job very seriously and I care deeply that I do a great job for each and every couple. Happy brides & grooms make for a happy me!

Why you should switch to organic milk

Growth hormones and antibiotics in milk don't sound like a good idea. However, most people think - organic milk? I can't afford that!

I am well aware that organic milk is more expensive, however, it's totally worth it! Why? Let's say that all you are looking for is a milk that lasts longer in the fridge. Choose organic! Don't believe me? Check the dates on the grocery store and you'll see... organic milk has later expiration dates than other milks.

I used to pour a lot of milk down the drain because I didn't use it in time. So, organic is more expensive per ounce - but a better deal for me! Oh yeah, and now I'm not drinking hormones & antibiotics... a win-win! It does have a slightly sweeter taste than other milk because it is heated to a higher temperature in the preservation process than regular milk. I do have a sweet tooth, but this extra sweetness is very minor and you'll easily get used to it.

What an expert opinion? Let Scientific America tell you exactly why organic lasts longer.
