The Wisteria tree at the Beach Plum Inn

Location: Beach Plum Inn

Jess and Brain didn’t know when they planned their May 25th wedding at the Beach Plum Inn that the historic purple Wisteria tree would be in full bloom. I just love how the purple blossoms look with the Brown bridesmaid dresses.

Island Weddings Magazine 2010

Just released, the Island Weddings Magazine, hot off the press with Monica & Bernard Baez on the cover. This Manhattan couple had an intimate wedding with a friends and family on May 31, 2009. This shot was taken as we were walking down to the lighthouse. Bernard just swept Monica off her feet and my finger triggered the camera right at the moment before kiss impact. These two were so in-love and I was honored to document their wedding day.

Four Seasons at Island Cohousing

Last year, Nicki Miller, editor of the Martha’s Vineyard Magazine assigned writer Alexandra Bullen and yours truly, to photograph the Community Garden in West Tisbury for one year. It was a fabulous assignment and one that I was eager to take on.
This community garden is not only abundant and productive but its members eat year round from it’s soil. In their winter hoop house I found kale, mache, parsley, lettuce greens, tatsoi, swiss chard and spinach growing when it was 24 degrees and snowy outside. Master gardener Lynn Weber has been growing fruits and vegetables for the last 65 years ( 5 years at coho) and has much wisdom to share. Alexandra interviewed several residents and was able to capture and write a wonderful story about these folks at that intentional place they call Icoho.

Laura and Austin

Laura and Austin had a blast walking down Main Street in Edgartown with the Beetlebung Steel Band leading the way with New Orleans style music. It was my favorite part of their wedding. That evening the Vineyard sky turned violet and rose pink over State Beach during their portrait session.

Wild Edibles, Part Two of Three

This month I worked with Holly Bellebuono, a local herbalist, and Catherine Walthers, a local food author, on a piece for Martha’s Vineyard Magazine on wild edibles.. It is the second of a three part series on foraging for food on the island. This article features yummy edibles such as purslane, lambs quarters, and red clover.
