The Ground Zero cross

In the days after 9/11, I remember watching television and seeing images of a group of steel beams in the shape of a cross amidst the debris of the World Trade Center. The steel cross became a symbol of hope and faith to many. In fact, many people began leaving messages on it.

I never saw the cross in person until yesterday. I had just left the Post Office on Church Street next to Ground Zero when I noticed the cross had been placed next to St. Peter's Church. The cross was lit by spotlights which created a very dramatic feel. At night and under these lighting conditions, the cross evoked feelings of inspiration and sadness at the same time.

These photos were all shot with my new Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX3 pocket camera using dynamic black & white film mode.

My photography was on the Today Show!!!

Maria, one of my favorite clients, was interviewed on yesterday's edition of the "Today Show" on NBC. Maria is married and was part of a segment that discussed what is the right age to get married. I am excited to write that during her interview, the "Today Show" displayed one of the images I took of Maria and her husband Louis last year during a photo shoot in Manhattan's Financial District. My blog posts of our photo shoot can be found here and here.

Thanks to Maria and Louis for submitting the photo to be used on the show. The video of Maria's interview can be found on Here is a screen shot of my image that was displayed.

Amanda & Michael's Wedding

Last week, I had the pleasure of covering Amanda and Michael's wedding in Morristown, New Jersey. Their wedding ceremony and reception were at the Madison Hotel.

Amanda and Michael were alot of fun to be around and they threw a great party!

Amanda got her hair done at the Bloom Studio.

One of Amanda's bridesmaids is a professional make-up artist and did a great job.

Amanda's son looked great in his tux!

Before the ceremony, the bride and groom met in front of the hotel to check each other out.

What a beautiful couple. Congratulations Amanda and Michael!!!
