Christ Church Vienna

My old high school friend Johnny Kurcina is now a pastor, leading a new church called Christ Church Vienna. He contacted me in February and asked if I might be able to come photograph one of their church services for use on their website.
So last Sunday, St. Patrick’s Day, instead of donning green I put on my photographer’s requisite black and headed to our alma mater, James Madison High School, whose auditorium is currently the church’s home every Sunday.


The pics will soon be gracing the Christ Church Vienna website, but here’s a sneak preview:

photographing Councilmember Cheh

I just finished photographing D.C. Councilmember Mary Cheh at the Wilson Building in Washington, D.C. She and her staff were a ton of fun to work with, particularly creating mock hearings for some action shots!


Look for new pictures to grace Mary Cheh’s website soon…in the meantime, here’s a sneak preview:

Ashley Judd Comes to Washington

I got to photograph Ashley Judd on Friday at GWU in Washington, D.C. for Politico. She was invited by the School of Public Health and Health Services to give a talk about women’s global health issues. I have to say I was pretty impressed by how well-spoken and intelligent she is, and it’s a topic she’s certainly passionate about! As an added bonus her mom Naomi Judd was in the audience.


You can check out Politico’s coverage (and see more photos) here.

On Sunday I got to photograph the Code of Support Foundation’s VETStravaganza concert at GW Lisner Auditorium in Washington, D.C. The show promoted hiring vets and military spouses and included performances by the West Point Cadet Glee Club, the West Point Alumni Glee Club, 4Troops, Homefire, and country music rising star David Kroll and established star Mark Wills.


Here are a few pictures from the event:

sen. lautenberg announces retirement

I’m really excited that I had the opportunity today to shoot a freelance assignment for the Star-Ledger, based in Newark, N.J. They hired me (the first time they’ve hired a D.C. photographer in YEARS! YAAY!) to get pictures of Sen. Frank Lautenberg, who today announced his retirement.


After some scrambling around, I managed to catch up with the senator on his way to the subway that connects the Senate Office Buildings with the U.S. Capitol. I introduced myself and he agreed to let me ride with him on the subway, where I made this shot:
