On Friday morning August 13th Nathan and Katie packed up their gear and hit the road west bound to photograph a lovely wedding in the Catskill Mountains. Samantha Hay and Josh Krinsky were married at the Krinsky’s house by the quaint town of Margaretville, NY.
Friends and family traveled in from all over to be a part of a truly special weekend. The wedding ceremony took place at a pristine lake next to the mountains on a perfect afternoon. Samantha and Josh stood proudly together with their baby Naomi as lifetime friends of theirs, Megan Auster-Rosen and Ben Lenzner, married them. The wedding was especially personal as each and every person at the wedding shared a memory, a smile and a laugh while dancing the night away. Local wild flowers, home-made jam, and a beautiful baby girl named Naomi made this wedding one we will never forget! As photographers we are thankful to have been a part of a unique and beautiful wedding. Congratulations to Samantha and Josh!

I was asked by a fellow photographer to help shoot a wedding on New Years Eve at the Lenox Hotel in Boston . With no real plans for the evening I thought it would be a fun way to ring in the new year.

I recently had the opportunity to spend nearly two weeks in Mumbai India. I was asked to help out with a photography workshop put on by Visual Reportage Workshops.
I found Mumbai to be an exciting place filled with generous people, as well as a complete test to all of my senses.
Dharavi is known at the largest slum in the continent of Asia. It houses and employs well over half of a million people and exports goods all across the world. Although both living and working conditions are very grim, the people of Dharavi would prefer this over plans the government has to take over the land.

Tin structures along the railroad tracks provide housing for many in Dharavi.
One of the largest issues facing the people of India is the lack of clean water. In many areas running water is not available to the people on a regular basis and water delivery trucks provide clean water once each week. I witnessed people illegally selling small bags of water to those who missed the delivery.

I was very excited and a bit surprised tonight to receive the package I had sent myself from Mumbai, India late last week. To be completely honest, I was surprised to see the contents at all. The postal system I was strung through to get the package sent was on par with most other obstacles I faced while I was visiting Mumbai.
“Three photocopies of this, fill out these forms, you can’t send medicine sir (Tiger Balm), go see the ladies out there on the curb and they will sew up your package and seal it for you.”
” It is not possible sir for you to be the sender and receiver”
After quoting me two different prices to send the same package at the same speed, I went with the lesser amount and crossed my fingers. And just like the rest of the trip, things seemed to work out in the end. I now have three new bicycle bells (that are VERY loud) and a bunch of clothing and trinkets from Mumbai.
Thank you Speed Post.
