In this political season I think it’s great when two parties can come together to for a common purpose. In this case it was the marriage of Dana and Tom Manatos in Pittsburgh, PA on July 19, 2008. I knew Dana from working for President Bush and she asked me to photograph her marriage to Tom who currently works for Speaker Pelosi. Dana now works at her family business Edward Marc Chocolatier which supplied the reception with every kind of chcolate you could imagine!

At her time at the White House Dana would do advance work for the President and brought the same level of organization to her wedding right down to the “mini” schedule listing everything from the ceremony time to who should be in the family photos. It was a huge help!

    There was a large skylight behind me at the start of the hallway that helped light them plus some overhead light fixtures added a bit of light.

January 20, 2009 President Barack Obama was sworn in as the 44th President of our country and I was so fortunate to be able to document the event for the President Inaugural Committee, the White House and the Official Inaugural Book.

Take a look at this video by John Harrington on the logistics of photographing the inauguration where I’m interviewed about my experience.
