Summer 2013 Press

As you may have noticed by my lengthy absence, things are crazy here in hot, humid, NYC. I’ve spent my summer being quite the busy little bee, and am now about to once again begin prepping for fashion week— just over a month away!

Along with some truly wonderful shoots I’ve been able to take part in, two very very cool things happened this spring/summer:

I photographed 5 bridal market week shows for BRIDES Magazine. Two of which ended up being featured as full-page images in the current Aug/Sept ’13 issue!!

Now that the issue is out, expect more photos from each of the 5 bridal shows to debut here soon. In addition to Oscar de la Renta Bridal, which can be seen here.

In more ODLR news, I was absolutely overjoyed to find out two of my Resort ’13 show images were featured in this inspiring mini-documentary about Oscar himself. Filmed as an introduction to the exhibit currently on display at the Clinton Library, in Little Rock, Arkansas. You can catch my photos near the end of the video, at the 8:12 (runway finale) and 8:14 (oscar clapping with model) marks.

Getting in the Spirit of Fashion Week

Things have been quite around here, while I’ve been doing a lot of planning and preparation for NY Fashion Week. A lot of last minute friend hangouts, schedule wrangling– and a lot of laundry!

As is tradition, I like to start off each new fashion week revisiting some of my favorite photos from the season before. Hopefully, I will have a lot more great coverage from my 6th (!!) season at NYFW. For anyone new here: I shoot such a high volume (at least 30 shows, averaging about 16-20,000 photos overall–all while pulling 12 hour days for about 9 days straight) that I post “teaser” images every night. Full show and backstage coverage will begin the day after NYFW ends.
