I'm honored that my friends trusted me to take their save-the-date photos. Here are some from the shoot yesterday. If you know anyone in VT or in New England looking to get married, I'm available to take pics. :) #theWorkshop
Colleague, mentor, and friend, Dr. Jessica Gordon Nembhard has been sued by a former member of the cooperative community.
