Emily and Joe get married

When Ginger Lucas contacted me to tell me her youngest daughter was getting married I couldn't wait to see Emily all grown up. I had shot her sister's wedding 9 years ago so I was thrilled to see the family again. Now there were lots of grandchildren to photograph as well. Annette Babich Events helped plan the day. I loved the little details and the starfish theme. To see the slide show go to or click on the link to the right.

New York Times Announces Emily and Joe's Wedding

Emily Ann Lucas, a daughter of Virginia L. Lucas and Jerome D. Lucas of Cold Spring Harbor, N.Y., was married Saturday evening to Joseph Duilio Turilli, a son of Carol Ann Turilli and Dr. Nicholas J. Turilli of North Kingstown, R.I. The Rev. Marcel L. Taillon, a Roman Catholic priest, performed the ceremony, with the assistance of the Rev. Joseph G. Fonti at St. Dominic’s Chapel in Oyster Bay, N.Y.

In September, Mrs. Turilli, 25, is to begin teaching fourth grade at the Brearley School, the private girls school in New York. She graduated from Harvard and is pursuing a master’s degree in childhood education at Fordham.

Her father is a managing director in private wealth management at Barclays, the British bank. He works in New York.

Mr. Turilli, 27, is an associate at Brigade Capital Management, a money management firm in New York. His responsibilities include maintaining relationships with investors and attracting new clients to raise capital for the firm. He also graduated from Harvard.

His father is an internist in private practice in Warwick, R.I. The bridegroom’s mother manages the practice.

The couple met in New York late in 2007, and found that they had crossed paths at Harvard but did not actually meet there. “We took a few of the same classes. We were at a bunch of the same parties. We had the same big group of friends,” Ms. Lucas said.

Their first formal meeting took place shortly before Christmas at the birthday party of a mutual friend.

Oddly, Mr. Turilli said, that was the second of two parties they both attended that night. Ms. Lucas “had left by the time I got there to the first party,” he said, adding that by the time he turned up at the second party, she had been there awhile.

They then ran into each other at two more parties later that week. “We were bound to meet at some point,” Ms. Lucas said. JOHN HARNEY Photo by JULIE SKARRATT

Ilo Ferreira travels the back roads

It has been over 6 months since I have seen Ilo so it was really great catching up with him last weekend in Gulf Shores, Alabama, where he was playing at LuLu 's Restaurant both Friday and Saturday night. I had just met the fabulous LuLu herself on board Jimmy Buffett"s plane as we flew down from the Hamptons to escort Jimmy as part of his entourage. Yes I was tour photographer and you better believe me when I say it was fun! But that is another story and another post.
Ilo has lots to be smiling about. He has been out non stop on the road since last summer, mostly around Florida but also traveling in between his own gigs to meet up with Jimmy and then staying on the do his own shows.
It was exciting to hear all his stories. My favorite one was how he went to Memphis and visited Gracelands and was blown away by Elvis. So I asked him if we could do some more photos a little different from our last photo session and he agreed to wake up 3 hours early to let me catch a few new photos before I had to go off to work. We spent 30 minutes together and it was a great way to start my day.
Ilo's schedule is up on his website so just click on the link and hope to see you there Ilo's Tour Dates
