Deconstructing a Pig

I recently was lucky enough to watch the excellent chefs at Corner Table restaurant deconstruct a whole pig, which they do a few times each month to make the wonderful pork products that appear on their menu. The photos turned into a photo essay for the Heavy Table. A note of warning: the photos are a bit graphic, so please don’t follow the link unless you are comfortable with meat, bones, and some blood.

Sarah & Will – A colorful Madison wedding

I posted a few quick photos from Sarah and Will’s wedding in Madison a few weeks ago, and now I am ready to post the rest! The day started at Inn on the Park, where they had a beautiful Hindu ceremony overlooking the capital and the farmers market. Because Sarah and Will both changed outfits between the ceremony and reception, we did two portrait sessions – one on the capital steps, and another at the Memorial Union. The reception was at the Edgewater hotel. The hotel still has a lot of vintage Madison charm, and has one of the only restaurants in Madison that overlooks Lake Mendota.

Thanks to Sarah and Will for having such a beautiful and joyous wedding, it was a pleasure to be there!

Making a wedding cake

Well, I found myself with some time on my hands a week ago, and I indulged my desire to make a wedding cake (served at a BBQ instead of a wedding). You can read more about it at Heavy Table, but I wanted to share a few photos that I particularly enjoyed.

Shannon & Steven – a preview

Shannon and Steven were married last weekend in Rochester. Here is a little preview while I process the rest.  Steven is also an artist (wonderful guitar player, as will be revealed in the photos to come later) and I really wanted to make sure I got something special for him and Shannon.

Family Portraits

I recently took a few photos of my brother and his family. My niece, Jackie, is normally very agreeable but put up a little opposition this time. Luckily, we got some great photos with a smile!

Salon Saloon with handmade sausage

My husband, Jim, wsa the guest co-host of Salon Saloon recently and I took a few photos. Besides the guests and interviews, Chef Chris Olson of Paired made sausage on stage for a little cook out afterwards. It was, as you might imagine, quite delicious.
