// Steven & Eryn are married

These two bought their first house together just a couple of days prior to the wedding, and so being the small intimate gathering that it was, we gathered there for a bit to do some photos, and play around in the different rooms of their home that had yet to be filled with furniture. Almost like an interactive tour. After that we gathered with those they call family and close friends and had a quiet ceremony at the chapel in town. And while being quiet and intimate- the day was filled with much contagious laughter and excitement for the journey ahead for these two. Here are some of my favorite photos from our time together.

// Anu & Maneesh are married

Well, I flew into San José Airport and Maneesh himself picked me up from the airport. Right then I knew I was being invited into a family. And so, for three days I came alongside these families, and watched, and observed, and photographed what I saw. Here is some of my account that I did to the best of my ability.

// Yo-Yo Ma

So recently Yo-Yo Ma visited Kansas City, and during his visit and performances in town, he asked the Symphony if he could have the opportunity to do some surprise performances for folks in the community. I had the privilege of being invited to follow him around and document what happened that day. We went to Lunch with the Homeless and a local church, the Ronald McDonald House, and the Veterans Affairs Hospital. What I witnessed was a man who is a friend to all, and holds no love back.
