Editorial – Ann Nyberg

News Anchor, Ann Nyberg, is a force to be reckoned with.

She will at once win over your heart with her mid-Western, self-deprecating charm, and then get up in your face with her no-nonsense Get out there and DO something about it take on life. She’s a warm smile and quick to hug, but make no mistake about it….if you’re not pulling your own weight, she’ll be the first one to tell you about it.

We first met Ann when she moderated a Wedding Row panel we spoke on in 2009….and life has never been the same since. In the most amazing way possible.

*Ann is a long-time fan of screen legend, Katharine Hepburn. And the two women seem to have been cut from the same dazzlingly beautiful, tough-broad stone. So “The Kate” theater in Old Saybrook seemed the obvious choice for our backdrop.

  1. Chelsea McGowan

    I want these for my own. I mean, not of her… though she’s gorgeous. I want these of us. I’ll sell my liver if I have to, but I WANT THESE of us.

  2. Samantha Harkins

    She’s so elegant and fantastic. I want to BE her. The photos are gorgeous as always!

  3. Julianna

    These are amazing , I love your editorial work

  4. Abby Grace

    Yes yes YES! These are stunning! I’m loving that shot that looks like it was taken around the corner of your backdrop. These images are amazing- she looks like she needs to model for Ann Taylor or something. This shoot is enough to make me want to play around with studio lighting.

  5. MM

    @Abby: funny enough, Ann’s daughter does model for Ann Taylor!

  6. Shannon Gray

    Love them all! Love the setting!

  10. Tara Peddicord

    wow. wow, wow, wow. These photos are stunning- and she seriously worked. it. out. I LOVE her quote too, "If you don’t know, ask. …Remember, you’re setting the bar for someone else coming right up behind you." An awesome thing to be reminded of…

  11. Heather

    I seriously *love* these shots!! Especially the one with the quote about setting the bar. She seems so inspirational – this collection makes me want to visit her blog and see what other great advice she has. Great work, Justin and Mary!!
