It took almost 30 days and 606 logged miles in order to complete this month’s Philly Mag feature. Oh, and it’s (probably) my last assignment for them - ever. Thanks for some good years, Philly Mag.
I don’t often shoot weddings, but I made an exception last weekend for an old friend and her new husband. Zoey Sless-Kitain is the former Photo Director at Philadelphia Magazine and we’d worked together for almost 8 years—before I left Philadelphia and she moved on to a different job.
From that first lunch meeting 8 years ago to her wedding last weekend, she’s had her hand in assigning, collaborating and now posing in literally 10s of thousands of my photographs. When I look back at where I’ve come from as a photographer, I can count the number of people on less than one hand who I can say have furthered my career—and Zoey is one of them. Thanks Zoey.
I can also say that’s she’s found no better life partner-in-crime than Patrick.
I wish you guys the absolute best in the future and thank you for including me in what will surely go down as on of the great days in your lives.
(Just don’t ever make me get in those Horah chairs when your friends are dancing—scary!)
