When I was 25 and studying photography, I never intended to become a serial “wedding crasher.” I just wanted to understand what women were supposed to do on their wedding day, just in case I ever got married. I also needed a topic for my master’s thesis and that’s when I began my “Women in Ritual” project. My preferred tool of investigation was, and still is, my camera. I use my camera to comprehend the world around me and to better understand subjects […]

But while they are assembled for celebration, there is also a more subtle reason for the […]
Happy Mother’s Day to all the mothers of my brides and grooms who have temporarily sacrificed their sanity and serenity to help with their children’s weddings. Listing all the tasks they’ve completed would take pages. They’ve done everything from guest lists and rehearsal dinners to place cards and favors and more. Mothers have helped me to understand the relationships between family members and to anticipate the significant moments of their children’s wedding day. My deepest thanks to all of them.

A v-neckline combined with a large, v-shaped, cascading bouquet creates a long vertical line which draws your gaze up and down. If you look at my photo above, you’ll see the bride’s v-neck gown and notice […]
