The first question I asked Scott about why they were getting married at Patriot place (home to the New England Patriots for those not in the know) was if they were huge patriots fans. Surprisingly, Scott answered that they were fans but the real reason they chose Patriot Place as their wedding location was because they took a vacation here some time ago and had such a good time they had been coming back every year since. Scott and Lisa are probably the nicest people you could ever meet. They go the extra mile to let people know they care. I can say that with full confidence as they sent me a thank you package that is sitting under my tree waiting for the holidays. I’ve met a lot of great people while second shooting weddings but Scott and Lisa are the first ones to give me any sort of thank you gift when it was all said and done.
As I was walking around the beaches of Winthrop this afternoon taking random pictures and gathering some drift wood I happened upon an American Flag. The tiny flag was stuck in the ground surrounded by seaweed just beyond the water line. I wonder who placed it there and why? Would it be washed away by the impending high tide…
Rob and Vanessa were married at the beautiful Our Lady Help of Christians Parish in Newton, MA. I met Rob and his family at the Westin Hotel in Waltham where the boys wanted to start the festivities off with a little prayer:
Mike, Jen and I have been friends for an extremely long time. Mike was my room mate for basically 4 years in college and we couldn’t have had more fun. To be perfectly honest, when Jen asked me for some Christmas Baby Photography of Owen I was a little hesitant at first. I had never shot babies before, only weddings and adults. I had also heard some real horror stories about how hard it is working with little kids and babies. I must say though, with Owen, those stories are all FALSE! Owen couldn’t have been any more well behaved for our shoot. He was mesmerized by the camera and anything else that got within his reach.
If he isn’t in a magazine soon something is definitely wrong in this world.
Andy and Lindsey have been long time friends of mine since college so I was super excited when they asked me to take some engagement photos for them. It also helps that they live right down the street from me in East Boston. Their apartment is literally a block away from beautiful Piers park where they often spend time during the hot summer months getting away from their apartments. A clear choice as the location for their engagement photography shoot. The weather was a little uncooperative at first which made it hard to get photo’s but as the sun began to set and those golden rays shined down the wind let up and allowed us to capture some great photos. An overall killer Boston engagement photography session.
Steve and Jessy took a little bit to get comfortable in front of the camera for their portrait session but once they did their true personalities shined through. You can tell by the photos that they are the type of couple that are all smiles all the time. For the session we hit up a few parks in East Boston for some candid and set portraits before heading down to the water on Piers Park to catch a pretty amazing sunset. It got a little cold once the sun started to set but they were both troopers. I think it was worth the wait!! You wouldn’t even be able to tell that Steve had just arrived back from a bachelor party at Foxwoods a few minutes before the session ;-p
Kicking off the 2012 wedding season with my first blog post! The wedding was located at Tupper Manor in Beverly, MA. I was second shooting for the fabulous Molly of Molly Anne Photography. We shot this venue last year together so we were both fairly familiar with it at this point. They do a fantastic job there and can setup the venue in a variety of different layouts depending on what the client desires. As per normal protocol, I was with the guys in the pool room while Molly worked with the ladies as they prepared. We then came together for the first look followed by some set group and individual shots before the ceremony and reception.
A few days ago I was given the opportunity to take some pictures at Move Fitness in Winthrop, MA as they held a fund raiser for the American Cancer Society. The event featured 20 spinning bikes and various community members spinning to raise money over a 3 hour period. Some bikers were able to spin the entire 3 hours straight – yes you read that correctly – while others were switching on and off as part of a team. The group was able to raise a remarkable $9,745!! Snacks and drinks were provided by the Seaside Survivors volunteers.
