I love working with brilliant artists who perform on the Pillow stages and teach in The School. Pillow artists I was able to collaborate with in creative portraits this summer include: Elisa Clark, James Whiteside and Cassandra Trenary, Catherine Cabeen, and Chloe Davis and Beatrice Capote.
Ashley & Rob were married at The Loading Dock, an exclusive Abigail Kirsch venue. I love working with Abigail Kirsch venues. Their event designers and caterers and staff have great energy and really know how to make everyone feel cared for. That’s important to me in my work with couples, too – working to make sure Ashley & Rob feel taken care of and heard.
Tali & Zachary were married at Stonover Farm in the Berkshires on a beautiful June day. It was such a pleasure capturing so many special moments on film.
Ella and Jason had beautiful summer weather for their Central Park wedding. They really wanted to use all the different aspects of the park for their photographs – the bridges, the greenery, the city views. Cherylynn on my Creative Team photographed this wedding and she captured it all.
I had an incredible time at Jacob’s Pillow making photos with Eiko Otake for her site-specific work, A Body at the Pillow. Her solo performance was a one day only event all around the historic Jacob’s Pillow grounds.
Rebekah & Jeremy were married at Pittsfield Country Club on a gorgeous summer day. Whitney Browne on my Creative Team was lead photographer with second photographer Cherylynn Tsushima. They captured so many beautiful moments of this military wedding and its red rose theme.
Being creative involves imagination and original ideas. Hiring someone who is truly creative for your special day means that photographer or planner or floral designer will treat your wedding like a work of art (because it is!)
Over the last several weeks I’ve been spending a lot of time outdoors with the dancers in the contemporary and ballet programs. The School attracts top students from around the world – the contemporary program alone has dancers representing nine different countries!
Paul Taylor Dance Company returned to Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival 2017 after many, many performances here since their Pillow debut in 1964. This year, four dancers from the company worked with me to make beautiful portraits.
One of my June couples this year had a private home wedding in Old Tappan, New Jersey. The set-up was beautiful. Endless flowers and greenery and lights strung from side to side for the ceremony.
