Announcement - Blog changes

New York City Hall Elopement

Hello all...I have decided to make some changes.

From here on, I have moved to posting only one or two images per post. My hope is that this will eliminate barriers to blogging, as well as isolate and highlight the individual nature of each image.  I am going to couple this with an insight, poem, quip from the wedding day, etc.  This way, I can post images almost daily and share my most recent work.   Enjoy!

Not your average wedding portrait in Windsor, VT

These two were playful.  Their love was playful.  It was a delight to be surrounded by, and you should absolutely check out their first dance <here>

All smiles after the ceremony in Western, Mass.

I cried. Some laugh. Many are stoic. But Lucy and Charley were grinning from ear to ear after their ceremony concluded.

Outside the Arlington Town Hall

I don't know if this was a guest, a passerby, or an Arlington town employee...but they seemed to be awaiting the bride and groom's arrival in a manner that suited the DMV, or a government position.  For some reason there seemed to be a bit of humor in this image, and I felt it matched the setting of the town hall wedding well.

Baby times at a Charles River Museum wedding

Baby sleeps during reception at Charles River Museum of Industry and Innovation.

I always giggle, and can't help but snap a photo when I see a classic multitasking parent.  Over the years, many iterations of mom or dad holding wine, beer (multiple beers!), while rocking a little one have been been captured.  Coincidentally, these two hail from Alaska (my home state) and made the epic journey to support Justine and Marc's recent wedding along the Charles at the Museum of industry and innovation.

Sperry tented summer wedding reception

Guests enjoy this tented reception at summer wedding in Western Massachusetts.

Recently I found myself standing at this moment, overlooking all of the peaceful moving parts of Lucy and Charley's reception.  It was a perfectly chilly evening, with the cool blue tones outside paring perfectly with the slow jazz, warm candle light, and fresh coffee being enjoyed by all.  You can check out their overview gallery <here>

Cocktail hour at Wolf's Neck Farm in Maine

"As an object, a photograph has its own life in the world.  It can be saved in a shoebox or in an album or in a museum.  It can be reproduced as information or as an advertisement.  It can be bought and sold.  It may be regarded as a utilitarian object or as a work of art.  The context in which a photograph is seen affects the meanings a viewer draws from it. "  Stephen Shore from his book "The Nature of Photographs"  ~ More from Julia and Andrew's <here>

Central Vermont wedding Inn Preparations

Write here

Memories are fleeting.  We never know what will bring us back to a moment, and while this image isn't inherently shocking or complex in anyway, I feel that it sets the scene for room number 9.  The room where Daniela laughed with her friends and cried with her mom while dressing for the wedding day.  Maybe it will take her back to anxiety, nerves, excitement and creaking floors of the Inn near her celebration at the Path of Life Sculpture Garden

dancing at Stockbridge wedding

couples dancing at wedding reception in western massachusetts, stockbridge

Some of my own favorite and distinct memories of my wedding came from friends.  I love documenting how weddings bring other couples together.  Serving to remind each of us how special our partner is, and slowing life down.  I loved how "in the moment", and unaware of the world these two were.

A quick toast

bostonweddingphotographer

As a photographer, you never know what will appear as you round a corner.  I am always hoping for something like this....a quick behind the scenes toast between Laura and Mike.  I only had time for one frame, but I like everything this photograph represents.

Processional

If anyone if familiar with Martin Parr's work...this reminds me of his obsessions/compositions.  The classic pattern of a New England church carpet with the wedding dress passing by during the trip to the alter.

Wedding guests

There is always a buzz of excitement before a wedding ceremony as guests arrive, and often congregate to find friends, ogle the stationary, and figure out where to sit.
