i am so thrilled to share the WINTER 2012 COVER of THE KNOT magazine…
it is always an honor to have one of my photographs on the  cover of a magazine, but
this time it is especially sweet…you see the creative concept was entirely my idea…I had
dreamt of a girl floating amidst a sea of flowers…& then it became my mission to try &
make it become a visual reality…i love how the stone is the “water” of my dreams & the
florals float & frame the lovely girl as she looks up at me…thank you so very much to the
incredible creative team who worked tirelessly beside me…DOLCE DESIGNS – your florals
literally brought my vision to life…the VILLA at SUNSTONE VINEYARDS – your stunning
estate is a photographer’s dream come true…i am so honored to have shot the VERY 1ST
wedding THEIR last year….& to have shot the 1st BRIDAL editorial their when i worked
on the very talented CLAIRE PETTIBONE’S ad campaign…& now this…i am sure countless
brides & magazines are going to continue to flock to the VILLA, there is truly no place like
it…& my sweet & beautiful ERIN SKIPLEY – we have been side by side for so many creative
adventures…your calm presence & masterful makeup & hair artistry make my job so much
easier…thank you CATHERINE SHEPPARD your styling is beautiful & seemingly
effortless…a special thanks to CARLEY RONEY of THE KNOT for entrusting me with the
incredible responsibility of rebranding an iconic wedding icon & giving me the creative
freedom to do it…please go pick up your copy of the WINTER 2012 copy of THE KNOT -
the 14 page fashion story if delicious – with gowns from MONIQUE LHUILLIER to the
lovely CLAIRE PETTIBONE to MARCHESA to REEM ACRA & INES DISANTO – the
gown featured on the cover is by london based designer  SAMUELLE COUTURE…xoxo
