Who will shoot your wedding?








When David and I got engaged, my first instinct was to elope to Vegas, get married by an Elvis impersonator, and shoot the wedding myself with a tripod and a remote.  Alas, David wasn't at all interested in eloping to Vegas.   During our plans for a wedding in New Orleans, the market tanked and we realized that New Orleans might be pretty rough in a year and no one, including us, might be able to afford to travel.  Plan B, eloping in Key West.  I knew the pictures were going to be a group effort...  And David would have to take at least a few.  Here is one of David's pre-wedding shots, I think he's got a future, don't you?

Deborah + Daniel

I usually try to post a set of images to my website within a few days of finishing the shoot. And in the interest of time, I usually focus on one small segment of the day. For Deborah and Daniel, I posted their dance and some of the group dancing. Fun, fun stuff indeed, but wanted to share this image as well:

Weddings!

Lots of gorgeous brides and handsome grooms as usual, including my second shooter, David, and his lovely new wife Cristiana.



It's funny to see someone who you are used to shooting weddings with actually in a wedding. Christiana had one of the longest, most beautiful veils that I've ever seen. However, her attendants, both male, had a little trouble figuring out how to place it behind her once she stopped moving. I think they did a great job, don't you?





One of the smallest guests admiring the Boston Public Gardens.

Shaleea, Chuks and now Boston!


One of the things I look forward to when I finish shooting a couples weddings, is the opportunity to shoot them and their children in the future. Chuks and Shaleea, the couple whose pictures appear at the link if you click on the title, are the proud new parents of an absolutely precious son, Boston.

I loved shooting this cute new family. We had a terrific day, the location was great, and Boston was so sweet! Isn't he adorable?

Work... Recent to Old



Ok, enough play, onto the real work!

During December, I had the opportunity to photograph the Four Generations of Hartfords in South Boston. There are a ton of pictures that I love, but thought these two captured the spirit pretty well!

Winston


Shortly after my last post, way back in spring 2007, Winston, the bulldog formerly known as Huskie, moved back in with me.

He's kind of huskie, super cute, and spoiled rotten. And honestly, I can't see any reason for it to be any other way, can you?

Music Festivals



Music festivals?

Yup, great opportunities to photograph really interesting emerging bands (check out zydepunks pictured above), established musicians, and a collection of other interesting goodies.

The most recent outing was Voodoo Fest. Voodoo fest X was held in a park in New Orleans in late-October. The weather was perfect, the music incredible. And I got to see Wyclef Jean who was incredible (see pix above). All the musicians were excited about the upcoming election and the crowds were equally excited. Lots of support for Obama!
