I’ve been at The Drake the past couple nights, overlooking Lake Shore Drive here in Chicago. What a cool view of a cool city.
I traveled up to North Carolina the other weekend to photograph Lauren and Sam’s wedding. They were a very encouraging couple to work with, both with a strong faith, loving friends and family and servant’s hearts. Really an honor that they chose me to capture they’re day.

We spent a weekend in Maine the other week, and shockingly, Stefani enjoys hiking in the woods way more than she has ever let on. This is one of the best discoveries I’ve made about her.

I visited Nicaragua earlier this month to assemble footage for the announcement video for Palmetto Medical Initiative, which is posted on this blog a few entry’s previous. Here are some other images I shot while there. It is always very humbling to witness the conditions that people are born into in other countries.

This was on of the most difficult things I’ve ever witnessed. Small children and adults rummaging thru a dump for metal (and by metal I mean bottle caps) to sell in the market

Unlike Africa, horses are a common form of travel and power in Nicaragua

I must say, the people were beyond friendly and great to work with. The only hostility was in Managua when I was told to leave immediately or else I might be killed for my camera gear ( a 300mm 2.8 on a 1Dmk4) Okay, I probably shouldn’t have been in that alley way any ways and been so flagrant with my gear, but your in Nicaragua for a reason and I was only striving for that end goal. * Fact: Nicaragua has the lowest crime rate in all of Central America, so just cause I take risks, doesn’t mean it’s unsafe, just that I’m _____.

Looking forward to PMI getting settled into Nicaragua and continuing it’s global force for good.
See you soon,
Here’s a preview of Courtney and Nic’s wedding in Charleston the other week. Congratulation’s!
And thank you to Hannah Alexander for shooting with me a few hours too.

Palmetto Medical Initiative continues to grow and is opening it’s second project in Latin America.
Here’s a great editing job on a video I filmed for Garden & Gun a couple months ago. Always great getting to work with such a high quality magazine and wonderful people. Cocktail Club
