Andrea and Kevin Engagement

Erica and I had a blast walking around the North End of Boston with Andrea and Kevin. Paul Revere's statue, the Old North Church, a locked cemetery, a bunch of cool old doorways and passages...

The wedding's only a few weeks away. We're uber excited ;)

Spruced Up My Site a Bit

I did a major overhaul of my WEBSITE yesterday.

I added an ENGAGEMENT section, put lots of new shots in the WEDDING section and changed much of the text.

I also redid the ABOUT ME part. It used to say stuff like "...discretion is an utmost concern to us..." blah, blah, blah. I figure the pictures show what needs to be said so, instead, I just told a bunch of funny stories from my childhood.

Prospective clients want to know that my brother peed on my head when I was four, right?

Cristin and John Engagement

We went to Cristin and John's first dance lesson to photograph them brushing up for their wedding dance. The room and lighting were challenging but we had fun being out of our element. We used flash for almost every shot and got to do some experimenting. Cool couple, cool tattoos, cool accents (John is Irish), just cool...

We had a great time and look forward to the wedding in just a few weeks.

Engagement Albums

We decided recently to start making albums from our free engagement sessions with wedding clients. The idea is that we make an album chronicling the few hours we spend with you on your engagement. We leave the last few pages blank and you bring the album to the wedding and have your guests sign it. That way, when you get your wedding album, they are two books that match. you'll have your engagement album with all your wedding guest's signatures and your wedding album.

Magali, Lilly, and Lilli


Today we went to Mattapoisette for our staff day. It was a hot day full of whiffle ball, cigars, tiny hermit crabs, home made pie, and a 7 1/2 year old photojournalist to document it. I took the shots of Dash and Magali but Dash took the other three.

Dash has been shooting hundreds of pictures a day for the past few days. The whole ride home he held the camera in is his lap.

Dash Photographer

Dash has decided to take up photography again. He is using the D70 and really trying hard. He took 140 pictures today including this self portrait. What amazes me about this shot is how centered it is. He knows I don't usually like centered unless it breaks all the rules...

Not only is his head in the center, but he just happens to be standing in between the two booth benches behind him... almost perfectly in the center. If it weren't for the asymmetrical pictures on the wall I would never have been able to tear away from the picture. It's like a black hole. I'm intensely interested... and not just cuz it's Dash.

Allison and Matt Engagement

On Sunday we walked around Beacon Hill with Allison and Matt. We had a great time and I got to climb a fire escape and shoot down through the bars of the floor. I love shooting through things... and I love climbing things...

Thanks for a great time Allison and Matt and we can't wait for the wedding in October!

Sara and Dan Wedding

What a beautiful day in an adorable town (Falmouth, MA). Sara and Dan had an amazing wedding and Erica and I, with our friend Mark, had a blast photographing it.

We just finished the rough edit for their album. Click HERE to see it.
