I was so pleased to be included in the fantastic group photography show, Buy Art Before You’re 60, curated by the indomitable Andrea Potts. This show has been a San Francisco tradition since 1998, and I’ve been honored to participate in it from the beginning.
This year, Andrea put a twist on things by holding the show at Cornerstone Sonoma, one of my favorite spots in the wine country. It’s a crazy cool collection of shops, eateries, wineries, and amazing garden installations from the country’s top landscape architects. (My next-choice career after “wedding photographer” was “landscape architect”, so I’m especially mesmerized by the incredible installations.)
Cornerstone is a beautiful site for weddings, and I have shot there… but on Sunday, I had the rare treat to bring my family along for a lovely, summery afternoon in the sun, admiring art and reconnecting with friends… no work required!
Here are the two pieces that were selected for the show:
Here’s how they looked, framed up nice and pretty:
Thanks again, Ms. Potts, for all your hard work on this show!
There is a new review of my book on Amazon:
“I went to a bookstore to buy a completely different book by a different author, but in the end I bought this one – really judging the book by its cover and a few more photographs that got my attention. I am so happy I did, as it’s pure enjoyment to read and learn from it. Not new to photography, but new to wedding photography, I feel like I know what to expect from my first wedding I am going to shoot. The book provides great layout – chapters are based on what you’d expect from the wedding schedule plus a few extras. I’ve also found the book very inspiring – it just made me want to go out and set up some shoots and practice more and get better. If the author writes another one, I’d be ordering it in advance.”
She hit all the points that were most important to me when writing the book: that it be practical, truly useful, AND inspirational. I LOVE that she says it makes her want to set up some shoots, practice and get better. Right on!
Thank you, Olga Courtnage – I’m thrilled that you have gotten so much from the book!
My book is making its way into the world, and it’s so gratifying to get feedback on it. Today I learned that “Photoshop User” magazine gave it a perfect (and rare) 5-star review… I’m feeling pretty good about that…

I was thrilled when the editors for the UK edition of Brides magazine wanted to run this beautiful Beaulieu Garden wedding…hmmm, perhaps a business trip across the pond for a thank-you tea is in order?
I’m thrilled that the editors of Brides magazine selected me for their Ultimate Guide to Photography in the August issue, along with wonderful photographers like Thayer Gowdy, Liz Banfield, John Dolan, Lisa Lefkowitz, Jose Villa, and Melanie Nashan. I’m truly honored to be featured alongside this amazing group, many of whom have been friends and inspirations for years. Cheers!
