Hidden away in the Medina of Marrakech lies a place almost too beautiful to be real. You may lose your way trying to find it, but the destination is certainly worth whatever arduous journey is required. For in Marrakech lies a hotel unlike any other in the world – the Royal Mansour. And, commissioned by the owner – King Mohammed VI – the hotel certainly lives up to its regal namesake. As a Royal Mansour wedding photographer, having the opportunity to spend a week staying in one of the hotel’s decadent private riads was an absolute dream come true. Just […]

Rustic and beautiful, a galette is the perfect option for an elegant yet simple French meal. In the summertime, I fill mine with sweet Indiana corn, local green beans, and cherry tomatoes fresh from my garden. Of course, come September when the temperatures drop, a trip to the apple orchard is in order and an apple galette is the perfect way to showcase our bounty. But, on cold winter afternoons when the frost has covered our windows and our fire is roaring, this butternut squash galette is my absolute favorite ode to the season.
