Their Dream Comes True

My fine art photographer friend Aline Smithson (on the right) asked me to shoot her getting ready to attend the 2008 Academy Awards. For her and her childhood, Donna Bulseco, it was truly a dream come true.

I am such a fan of Aline's work and I was so flattered that she asked me to document her big day. She had a bunch of her girlfriends over the big event too. Aline also has a great photographer's blog. Please check it out.

I created a slideshow of the big day to the Oscar-winning song from the film Once. Aline and I both thought it a very appropriate song for the occasion. Click on the slideshow below or here.

After she received the photos and the slideshow, Aline wrote me the nicest note.

Thank you for the incredible photos...
