Each time Sara talked about the shoot she wanted to do, it got more elaborate, eventually including makeup and costumes somewhere in the woods. Then one Saturday afternoon in November, when we were both stressed out about other things and in need of a break, we decided to scrap the plans and just go shoot. We didn’t even know where we were going when we started driving.
I was honored to photograph the wedding of my friends Sam O’Keefe and Shelby O’Keefe in October, 2013, and today it is being featured on glamour.com! I had a great weekend with them in St. Louis and I’m glad the people,weather, and location all came together to create the beautiful conditions for this shoot.
I explored Saugerties, NY, with my girlfriend for Thanksgiving and it was beautiful. She and her cousin Eli ended up being my photo subjects on our snowy hike by the Hudson River.

Everyone was on edge yesterday as forecasts predicted up to 6″ of snow. In all, the total came to less than 1″ leaving many people (or at least me) feeling shortchanged. As Calvin once remarked, “Getting an inch of snow is like winnning 10 cents in the lottery.” Even so, I found a few kids outside making the most of it.
