Daily Art Quote

Courage doesn't always roar. Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, 'I will try again tomorrow.' (Theodore Roosevelt)

Happy First Day of Autumn!

The one red leaf, the last of its clan,
That dances as often as dance it can,
Hanging so light, and hanging so high,
On the topmost twig that looks up at the sky.
~Samuel Taylor Coleridge

NH Wedding Photography - A Farm Fresh Wedding

I recently had the pleasure of photographing the wedding of Becky and Jason, one of my most favorite couples! They said their vows in a beautiful farm field at Coggeshall Farm Museum in Bristol, RI.
Thank you Becky & Jason for including us in your gorgeous day!

Daily Art Quote

A man should hear a little music, read a little poetry, and see a fine picture every day of his life, in order that worldly cares may not obliterate the sense of the beautiful which God has implanted in the human soul. (Johann Wolfgang von Goethe)
