Legendary darkroom printer Robert Cavalli and I were speaking on the phone one day and he kindly asked to use one of my many B.B. King images on his website. Of course I was thrilled. Robert Cavalli has achieved great success as a printer and is one of the top fine art master printers in the industry. His Beverly Hills and Los Angeles photographer clientele bring him film to process that have included the weddings and/or personal events of Steven Spielberg, Jennifer Lopez, Christina Applegate, Jessica Simpson, Nick Lachey, Hilary Swank, etc. I was very honored that he asked to use my work on his site as I am one of the few east coast photographers that have silver halide prints included in his client portfolio.

Amanda elected to photograph her portrait in her parent’s Frank Lloyd Wright inspired home in Chesterfield, Virginia. It was an outstanding session with one of my favorite images coming from above, showcasing the lovely design of their home and Amanda’s contagious smile. This 11×14 print matted to a 16×20 frame was displayed in Keswick Hall throughout the wedding weekend.
I was given a private tour by the folks at Trump Winery and am excited to see how Trump Vineyard weddings unfold in the near future. I was able to photograph the old Kluge carriage house from within and we certainly think this has the potential to become one of the top wedding destinations in the south. This is a view from one of the windows near the east side of the property.
The 158 foot Currituck Beach Lighthouse, built in 1875 on the North Carolina Coast, was a pleasure to photograph. As awe inspiring as a lighthouse can be from the outside, it is the interior that can often lead to wonderful imagery with its geometric patterns and shapes combined with dramatic lighting and a few tourists in motion.
