Anish and Tia Engagement at the Biltmore Estate

Biltmore Estate, Asheville, NC, October 29, 2016

I had the honor of shooting the engagement of Anish and Tia at the Biltmore Estate this past October. I was contacted by Anish who planned to surprise his financee-to-be with his proposal at the outdoor Diana Venue located about 200 feet from the entrance of the Biltmore House. The plan was to coordinate our time and locations so that I would be at the Diana just before their arrival. I was to pass myself off as a tourist, and Anish would approach me asking if I would take a photo of them with his smartphone. All went to plan. I fiddled with the smart phone, stuck it in my pocket, pulled out my own camera and captured Anish on bended knee as he proposed to Tia. As you can see by the reaction of Tia in the first photo, she obviously never saw it coming!

We then hopped onto a bus that took us to the Biltmore winery where, once again, Tia was taken by surprise by being greeted by Anish’s parents and extended family that he had secretly flown in for the engagement.

Below are several of my favorite images from the shoot.

Enjoy!

No Justice, No Peace

Rally held for man killed by police in Asheville, NC. July 6, 2016.

We want the truth - Patton Avenue.

We want the truth – Patton Avenue.

Friends, supporters and family of 35 years old Jai Williams (known as “Jerry” to family and friends), who was gunned down on Saturday, July 2 at Deaverview Apartments in Asheville, gathered at the downtown Asheville Police Department on Wednesday, July 6. The demonstrators demanded answers as to what actually occurred in the confrontation between Williams and the Asheville police on the night of the shooting. Although little local media coverage was to be found, family and friends were interviewed by Channel 7 News from Spartanburg, SC.

The protest was peaceful but passionate. Chanting “No justice, no peace”, the demonstration made its way though the streets of downtown before stopping in front of the Asheville Police Department. As the rally neared its end, in a display of passive resistance, protest signs that were carried through the streets by the demonstrators were laid out in front of the Asheville Police Department as a reminder that all lives are entitled to equal acknowledgement and respect.

The police officer involved in the altercation is currently on administrative leave. The State Bureau of Investigations has been called in to investigate the case.

A Go Fund Me page has been set up to collect funds that will be exclusively used to cover any legal fees, counseling services, and other ancillary expenses related to seeking justice for Jai Williams.

Further updates regarding the incident have been released by the family that contradicts the official police reports. More information can be found via this link.
