About the Book
On July 17, 2010, at a little after 5, Brittany Swann and Carter Dillow, with family and friends surrounding them, were married by Jeanne Sommer at Hidden River in Swannanoa, NC. Brittany arrived in a white horse drawn carriage. After the ceremony it rained briefly, but suddenly cleared in time for group photographs. Everyone ate delicious barbecue and after the music, knocked out by lightning, was restored and the cake was cut they danced the night away.
I grew up in India where my parents were Presbyterian agricultural missionaries and have taught at Warren Wilson College most of my life. My photographs are of north India and Sri Lanka where I have traveled many times; of Germany, which is my wife, Kathe's, home; and of the Swannanoa Valley and Asheville, North Carolina and of students and staff at Warren Wilson College, in Swannanoa just outside Asheville. Lately I have also been photographing weddings at Hidden River Events.
