Sarah + Dan

I had the honor to photograph the wedding of two wonderful folks on September 10th. One thing that made this wedding stand out for me was the emphasis the bride and groom put on the photographs. They set aside 3 hours between the ceremony and the reception for the bridal party, myself and Jennifer Garrett (who was on board as a second shooter) to travel to the foothills and then down to the botanical gardens. Sarah trekked a mile in her heels to get the Japanese gardens! There were at least 4 generations on hand to celebrate the day and a 'photo booth' at the reception. A highlight of the evening came when a bridesmaid spiked the bridal bouquet she'd just caught like a wide receiver that had brought in the winning touchdown.

Café Pasqual's in Santa Fe

I recently photographed Pasqual's for an upcoming issue of Edible Santa Fe. This assignment stood out for many reasons, but mainly because this is my favorite restaurant in New Mexico. It's a big statement, I know. The red chile here is unmatched, which is saying something in this neck of the woods, and the coffee at Pasqual's is Europe good. Photo subjects below include chef/owner Katherine Kagel, Smoked Trout Hash (my favorite dish), and the sublime Carta de Musica Salad, which comes with fresh local figs, prosciutto and an amazing buffalo mozzarella.
