After photographing President Obama’s first inauguration four years ago, I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to see how his second would compare. The crowd started out smaller this time and ended up being about two thirds of the size of 2009’s, which still meant that the National Mall was packed and spilling around the grounds […]
Anna & Jym: Dancing!
Anna & Jym: Married!
Buckle up, because this is my longest post to date. And why shouldn’t it be? Anna and Jym had such a wonderful wedding and I had such a great time shooting and preparing these photos that I want to share as much with everyone as I can, while still hoping that you’ll make it all […]
After I had such a great time at last year’s Rappahannock Independent Film Festival, I made sure to get on board early this year so that I could cover it from beginning to end. Despite the severe thunderstorm before the concert on Thursday night and the hurricane during the screenings on Saturday, the festival was […]
Independence Day in Fredericksburg
I had the opportunity this year to experience July 4th in downtown Fredericksburg since we had our usual party (see 2009 and 2010) on Saturday. First up is the annual river raft race from Falmouth Waterfront Park to the City Dock sponsored by the Fredericksburg Jaycees. It was a beautiful day to float down the […]
How I Got to MaxFunCon
Just over a month ago, I was checking up on Twitter and saw that Jesse Thorn needed a photographer. I’ve followed Jesse and his work at MaximumFun.org for about five years and it’s been an important part of how I stay connected with art and culture. This is particularly true for the worlds of hip […]

Jen & Mark
I’m finally getting around to posting the photos from Jen and Mark’s wedding! The amazing setting is Jen’s parents’ house on the river in Warsaw, Virginia. Everyone had a great time, myself included, and I’m grateful to have been a part of their day. And a huge thanks to both Bri Bevan of photography and […]
Wounded EOD Warrior Polar Bear Plunge 2011
It’s tough to call anyone else brave when the Wounded EOD Warrior Foundation is around, but anyone who would go for a swim in the Rappahannock on an early February morning is clearly braver than I. And a shocking number of people did on Saturday at the WEODW’s fourth annual Polar Bear Plunge at the […]
I went to the Rappahannock Independent Film Festival a few Saturdays ago with my with my festival day pass and my camera, just hoping to see some films and some friends, and probably grab a few photos. But when Ian checked me in at the front desk and asked if I could fill a gap […]
