My 2 Weddings

The only two weddings I’ve ever photographed were in Europe. When my friend Cat Wall/Aschenberg, a makeup and fashion stylist I had worked with, called and said she had met her prince charming and was going to get married at a castle outside of Paris and would I shoot her wedding, I was like, when!!! The event was magical! Paris was amazing! The food! The wine!

A year later my friend Matt Touchard had finally met his soul mate and asked me to shoot his wedding…this time in Montreux, Switzerland on Lake Geneva…how could I resist. Again a breathtakingly beautiful part of the world. I think I will stop at 2 weddings, unless I’m offered another one in Europe!
