Earlier this year, Maggy asked if I would be the official photographer for The Big Potluck and over the past few months, I've had the pleasure of attending and shooting their first Big Traveling Potluck in California and, most recently, the fourth annual Big Summer Potluck.  It's a lot of work photographing a multi-day event, but it's also a ton of fun.  We spent the weekend at both the Anderson household, where a fabulous dinner was served Friday night, and the Bucks County Audubon Society for a full day of speakers (which included cookbook author Joe Yonan of The Washington Post, Jeni Britton Bauer of Jeni's Splendid Ice Creams, and Jessamyn W. Rodriguez of Hot Bread Kitchen), delicious food, and cocktails.  Pam, Maggy, and Erika outdid themselves and I was so honored to be there to capture these moments.

I was also asked by KitchenAid to do a recap of the event (and talk a bit about their involvement as sponsors of the event) on their blog.  Head over here to check out that post and to see a few additional pictures from BSP.
