Sam + Rose’s B’nai Mitzvah at the New England Aquarium

Sam + Rose are two sweet, smart, goofy, engaging and all around wonderful people! We met on Thursday for their B’nai Mitzvah rehearsal and spent some quite time shooting with just the family. I thoroughly enjoyed spending time with them and getting to know their unique and truly lovable personalities. Then, on to the celebration Saturday evening at the New England Aquarium. What a perfect spot for a Mitzvah! And the rare (but much welcome) Spring weather made it perfect for an evening in their waterfront tent. Enjoy your slide show Sam...

Leanne + Justin’s Snowy Wedding at the Barn at Gibbet Hill

So I’ll admit it.  I was really hoping for a beautiful spring day for Leanne and Justin!  There are so many gorgeous outdoor spots at the Barn at Gibbet Hill.  I wanted to take advantage of them all!  Well life laughs as we make our plans.  We woke to a chilly, clear day with snow covering the surrounding hills.  I can work with that!  Leanne and Justin (and their fabulous wedding party) were total champs braving the cold to get those beautiful outdoor images.  I feel so lucky to have (what I hope are) some of the last snow...

Spring Wedding Fever!

I’m cold.  No, I’m really cold!  But I know Spring is just around the corner.  And while I dream of the April showers bringing May flowers, I get excited for my 2014 Spring Weddings!  Spring weddings in New England are truly special.  Spring in Boston is colorful, fragrant and romantic.  And Spring weddings in Boston are the same!  As I look forward to Spring in Boston, I think back to some of my favorite Spring wedding...

Rozzie + Ben’s Winter Wedding

Through my many years of wedding experience, I have learned the details that make a wedding truly special and memorable have nothing to do with money.  The details that are special about your wedding day come from your history, your traditions, your relationship with your partner and your loved ones.  Rozzie + Ben’s wedding at the Hilton Boston Logan was certainly elegant and quite lavish.  But the emotion and tradition I captured that day trumped all else.  Rozzie + Ben had a very traditional Jewish wedding complete with a Tisch and...

Donna + Todd’s New Year’s Wedding

New Year’s weddings are almost always the most fun wedding of the year!  There is an added festive feeling in the air.  Guests arrive ready for a party!  This year was no different.  Donna and Todd are such a wonderful couple!  I’ve been looking forward to their wedding since they booked.  We had a fantastic engagement session where I heard all about their goal of achieving their black belt together right around the time of the wedding.  Yes, I had visions of one of them showing up with a black eye.  Well, there were no...

Year in Review, Part Eight

Weddings The Celebration!   The  planning is over.  The formals are taken.  He’s kissed the bride.  It’s time to party!  This is when the bride and groom finally get to give a sigh of relief and celebrate with their closest friends and relatives.  And this is the when I am able to truly disappear.  No, I don’t leave the wedding!  But I take a step back, put my long lens on and capture the beautiful emotion happening all around me.  The story teller in me does a little dance of joy!   This is my last post of...

Year in Review, Part Seven

Weddings The Details   The wedding day details are truly important!  They’re the little mementos and projects couples work on to add meaning and personality to the day.  Since many of these details are not saved (flowers, favors, place cards, etc.) a great photo can be the only way to remember the items and the work put into selecting, and sometimes creating them.  Sometimes, the location or backdrop of a wedding can be the most fabulous detail.  I’ve photographed on beautiful beaches, rustic farms and against amazing city...

Year in Review, Part Six

Weddings The Ceremony   The ceremony is an incredibly special part of the day.  It is, after all, why all your loved ones have come together!  Whether it is in a garden, a ballroom, a temple or a church, I work to be as unobtrusive and invisible as possible.  I want the attention on your moment, not the crazy photographer.  This, of course, is balanced with making sure I am in the perfect spot to catch the unique traditions and moments of your special day.  I’ve been complimented by several couples who were amazed by the fact...

Year In Review, Part Five

Weddings The Formals   This category can be a bit deceiving.  Most often, my formal photos at a wedding are anything but formal!  I want my clients to look and feel natural in their family and wedding party photos.  So we keep the session light, fun…and maybe a bit goofy.  The light atmosphere is even more important these days as many couples are choosing to see each other prior to the ceremony to complete the session and enjoy the rest of the day.  Since the ceremony is still ahead, they’re often still pretty nervous. ...

Year in Review, Part Four

Weddings Getting Ready I’m not afraid to admit, I love shooting weddings!  It’s a good thing too, because they make up the bulk of my work.  I’ve separated my year in review into the distinctly different segments of the day.  The first part of the day can be the most important for a photographer.  When we first arrive, the bride is just getting ready.  The jitters often abound!  Tension can be high and the photographer plays a very special role.  We can either add to the tension of the day or work to lighten the...
