Travel, Films & Movies
My partner, Nick, and I spent 22 days on the road and travelled 3,800 miles across the West of the US earlier this year. Of course, I made lots of photographs along the way, but I also wanted to create a video experience from the journey. I hope you enjoy the (much abbreviated) version of the trip.

"The most beautiful moment for me was the minute we included in our ceremony to just look out and around at the community we had gathered there. We held silence for one full minute, and I tried to make eye contact with each of my friends and family members, as well as Chris's. The love I felt being sent out to us was palpable, as I knew that each of them was blessing our wedding in that moment, in their own ways. I knew that I had all of their support, this day, and all days to come, no matter what." - Christie
Emily & Jonah welcomed newborn Ananya into their happy home earlier this year. I was so touched by the love, tenderness and appreciation with which the older brothers interacted with their baby sister. Stepping into a family's life for a few hours is so special and intimate.
Meghan & Andrew married on Saturday, July 23rd, 2016 at All Souls Interfaith Gathering in scenic Shelburne, Vermont. The day was peppered with rainstorms and sunshine and bridesmaids that looked like pink tulips. Meghan & Andrew both live in Texas, but wanted to return to Vermont to tie the knot. Many friends traveled long distances to make it to the celebration, and when it came time for dancing everyone was doing the Texas two-step.
I love creating photographs in a scenario like this, where the family comes together and everyone has the chance to relax and enjoy being with each other. This is when the real, authentic moments happen. Moments you could never stage, like Jayden becoming fascinated by pine needles and Grandma & Grandpa holding him close.
