L & T'erry's Wedding

On Saturday, June 21, 2008 I got the opportunity to shoot the wedding of these two beautiful women. The ceremony took place at The Church of Saint Luke of the Fields in NYC. Unfortunately this church does not allow photos during the ceremony. L serves our country in the US Coastguard, so I will not be able to show photos of her face (being gay is till taboo in the forces), I can however show the beautiful Ms. Terry! Thank you both for allowing me to be part of your special day.

Celebrate ~ Remember ~ Fight Back

Today was the offical Passaic Valley Relay For Life. As a team we were able to raise nearly $1000!! We are all very proud, but know that it would not have been possible if we did not have all of our wonderful friends and family that donated to this great cause. This walk was to go for 17 hours straight, but due to the horrible storm that took over NJ the police department had to shut down the relay for the safety of everyone involved. We were able to walk for about 4 hours, but thats as long as the storm held off. We all can't wait to do it again next year. = )

Heres our team banner:

Our awesome team ( we are missing Steve and Valerie)

This beautiful little girl has been cancer free since April 2007!!!

Is'nt she adorable??

"Ghost Town" in NJ...

Say the words "ghost town," and most people picture tumble weeds rolling across the dusty streets of some long forgotten western boomtown. There is another kind of ghost town though, much closer to home, where sand, not dust sweeps across the splintered boardwalk. The faint echoes that emanate from the hollow buildings here are the swirling strains of a calliope organ, and the din of childrens laughter. Asbury Park, New Jersey is one such ghost town.

At the southern end of the boardwalk is the Casino, built in 1903

Not far from the casino stands the minty aqua-green facade of the Palace Amusements building. The character, which was given the name Tilly, has greeted visitors to Asbury Park with his wide-eyed, maniacal smile since he was first painted on the Palace back in the 1940's.

Asbury Park is not the beach that people growing up in Jersey came to love. Now it seems more like a real "Ghost Town"
