Chargers at Patriots - AFC Championship 01.20.08
As a lifelong Patriots fan, when I found out that my friend, Steven Frischling, had been hired to photograph the game for a major news service, I jokingly offered to come along to carry his lenses and keep him from getting bowled over by a charging linebacker. When he responded by saying I could come along as his “field editor”, I jumped at the chance. When, a few days later, he told me he had secured full field photographer credentials for me, and that I would be able to shoot when I wasn’t needed to help transmit photos to his employer, I just about jumped out of my skin! It was one of the coolest things that I have had a chance to be a part of…and, of course, the historic 18-0 win made it even better. A big thank you to Fish for the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity! Here are a few photos that I was able to take:

It’s (almost) a Boy!!!
I just wanted to share with everyone a photo that I didn’t take. It’s the first portrait of our impending son. For those of you whom we weren’t able to tell personally (and who didn’t hear it through the grapevine), Luke’s little brother will be arriving late in June. If any of my June clients (or potential June clients) are checking this site - not to worry. I’ll be providing a qualified second photographer to accompany me at no extra charge.
Here he is:

Jennifer & John Engagement Portraits
This weekend I had the opportunity to photograph Jennifer and John’s engagement portraits. With the weather being so unpredictable in New England in the winter, we decided to meet up at Worcester’s Union Station, with it’s great natural light indoor locations and beautiful architecture. Mother Nature, however, graced us with a beautiful, unseasonably warm day, an we soon moved outdoors. Check back again in April to see their wedding photos!

Charlene & Daniel (December 29th, 2007)
Part two of my double header weekend had me heading back to Worcester (I really love these weddings that are close to home!) We began the day at Charlene’s family home where she was surrounded by her bridesmaids and family in a whirlwind of activity. After capturing a few photos of the preparations and a few portraits of the family in their cozy, warm, living room, we took the long 5oo yard trek to “Our Lady of the Rosary” church for the ceremony. I’ve honestly never seen a shorter line on my GPS than the one from their home to the church. I think “she” laughed at me when I instructed her to find the way!
The ceremony was beautiful. Afterwards we stuck around for formal photos at the altar, then took a short drive to the Wachusett Country Club in West Boylston. After a couple of photos outside with the wedding party, it was time for some portraits with Charlene and Dan. I noticed a beautiful spot under a row of trees a short distance away. The problem was, there was a few inches of snow covering the path to get there. “No problem,” said Charlene, “I’m only wearing this dress once”. With that she trekked through the snow to the path! As soon as I heard that, I knew we were in for quite a party, and the night didn’t disappoint! Between the food that was prepared perfectly (I think the fact that Charlene’s dad was the head chef for the country club added just a little extra pride to the spread) to the fantastic entertainment provided by Brian from Sonic DJ, the room was hopping all evening!

Heidi & Jason (December 28, 2007)
Heidi and Jason’s wedding was the first part of a double header weekend after a few weeks “off”. Their happy even took place at the Beechwood Hotel in Worcester. Though I’ve lived in and around Worcester for years, this was the first time I have been the the Beechwood, and it was perfect. It was chilly and snow covered outside, but that didn’t matter because the Beechwood had everything: from the suite where Heidi got ready, to a chapel (complete with stained glass windows), to a ballroom where the party really got underway. And what a party it was. Surrounded by an intimate group of family and friends, it was a warm, loving, and fun celebration!

Also, a special thanks to Michael Umansky from Reflections Photography in northern New Jersey for making the trek all the way up to help me out this weekend.
