// Kari & Max are married

An Upstate New York Wedding.

So a fun thing that happened at this wedding. Kari, owner of Morris Kitchen, and her partner Max, asked Negro Pitattioni to come make the meal for the day. Negro is former head chef to Francis Mallmann (as seen on Chef’s Table as well as being known worldwide) who now has his own restaurant in Brooklyn, Mettā. So- the wedding, while inviting everyone in to the love, also invited everyone in to the full day experience of the cooking process. Here are some of my favorites of what I saw that day:

Claire & Chris

‘Twas time well spent in southeast Kansas. Claire and Chris had a backyard wedding and invited all those they love, and then I also spent the night, and woke up the next morning and spent some time with the family, and then did a small portrait session in a nearby state park. Here are some of my favorites. Enjoy

// 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.
