Seems like just a few months ago that I was celebrating Maddy’s Bat Mitzvah with her family in Newton Center.  So I was totally surprised to find out that nearly 4 years had passed, and Maddy was ready for her Senior portraits.  It was exciting to get the chance to catch up with her as we wandered around Auburndale Park on a rainy Friday afternoon.

We hadn’t planning to shoot a rainy day session…In fact all the way up to 30 minutes before the shoot, the day had been warm and sunny.  But Maddy loves rainy days, and came prepared with a perfect, clear umbrella, and a sunny disposition.  Starting right on the ball field, we quickly wandered over to the historic part of the park, where the cool old rock walls, the beautiful stone bridge, and even the more modern mid century rec building provided a lovely riverside backdrop for the photo session.  Moving across the athletic fields, we next followed the trails into the swamp, discovering a cool old picnic area surrounded by leafy woods and high grass.  The rain was nice enough to have ended by the time we finished the session with the day’s last cloud-filtered sunlight.

A little rain was not enough to dissuade Lisa and Jeff from exploring their North End neighborhood with me…and I was glad to stomp through the puddles with them as we captured their love during their engagement portraits in Boston MA.

We met at the Marriott Long Wharf, but we immediately set off in the direction of the North End, pausing to take some photos in the blossoming foliage of Christopher Columbus park, and walking down the Harborwalk to capture the misty bay behind the happy couple.  Then it was in to the historic north end…taking a moment at their centrally located apartment for a wardrobe change, before venturing out into the rainy alleys of the densely populated neighborhood.  The weather didn’t deter them one bit as we snaked through the streets and parks that make up the North End.  As the rain poured down, they stayed dry under their umbrella, and in the warmth of each other’s arms.

Here’s a story about a blushing bride meeting her dashing groom in a busy park in Boston, on a perfect October afternoon.  Upon seeing him, she burst into tears of joy as she rushed into his arms and embraced him tightly, just like she had done months before in this same Boston park when Matthew had asked Julie to be his wife.  Her answer started the wheels in motion for their amazing wedding at The New England Aquarium in Boston, MA.

My part in the story started when I met Julie and her bridesmaids at their hotel room at the Long Wharf Marriott in Boston MA.  The dresses were hanging up and the hair and makeup assembly line was in full swing, when I started snapping.  Seemed like it was only minutes until Julie was dressed and ready for the tearful meeting in Christopher Columbus Park.  Once she was holding Matt’s hand,  we were off and running, knocking out the family photos before taking a lap of the park with just the soon-to-be-wed couple.  Our lap took us at last to the Aquatium, where we were whisked away to a private room, where the Ketubah was laid out waiting to be signed, and Julie and Matt’s closest family and friends were there to witness.  I sneaked out after the document was signed to check in with the guests gathered on the pier as night crept in over the harbor.  But night brought with it a sudden rain storm, and we all ran quickly into the reception tent.  The staff of the aquarium was on it, though, quickly moving the Chuppa into the tent.  When I found Julie waiting in the wings she was happy as ever…eager with the anticipation of wedding her lifelong love.  And that’s just what she did, in a three handkerchief ceremony.  The happy tears of the ceremony, however, quickly gave way to the smiles and shouts and dances of joy as the celebration continued into the night.

For the past few years I’ve been hired by a major cable sports station to capture still images on media day.  We have a limited time with the team to capture both video and still images, so it is always a fun challenge to see what I’m able to get in less than 5 minutes with each player!  Here are my favorites from 2014.

The best part about my job is being invited to capture the most important events in people’s lives.  So when I was asked to photograph Madeline’s Bat Mitzvah at Hebrew College in Newton Centre, MA, I jumped at the chance!

I’d never met Maddy, but she greeted me like family with a big smile and a hug.  Once I was initiated into the family, we all headed outside to gather everyone together for photos.  After we’d worked through the list, Maddy stayed behind for a few extra minutes and posed with her Tallis.  By this time the crowd of family and friends had filled the chapel and Maddy was ready for her Mitzvah.  And she handled the age old traditions with a poise and grace that belied her age.

Going to high school in the late 80s meant that I got to rock out to some of the best music ever made.  Saturday night I got to re-live the soundtrack of my teenage years when I was hired to photograph the awesome 80s cover band, Whiskey Church at Central Tavern in Milford MA.

I arrived just as the guys were finishing up their sound check and ready for a break.  We had a few minutes to pull together some photos of the band together, and I’d scoped out a dark alley across the street that was perfect for the job.  After a few photos of the band together it was showtime! That’s when the fun really started…the band raising the roof with a killer first set of 80s standards and an energetic performance that had the dancefloor packed.

This weekend I was back at beautiful Willowdale Estate in Topsfield, MA, of of my absolute favorite venues, with the fantastic Meredith and Aaron, who were determined to take full advantage of all of its charm as they celebrated the happiest day of their lives!

They packed a lot into the day, so when everyone arrived at Willowdale we were off like a shot, heading right up to the bridal suite and immediately dressing for the day.  After packing all of the bridesmaids into the awesome bridal suite bathtub for a “magazine cover” shot, Meredith headed downstairs to see Aaron for the first time on their wedding day.  After an emotional reunion, we took a tour of the property, taking advantage of all of the unique natural and architectural treasures that Willowdale has to offer.  We arrived back just in time to meet the family for all of the family photos, then it was time for a wedding!

As the sun set over the courtyard, Meredith and Aaron performed the beautiful ritual that would forever join them, then headed back down the aisle as husband and wife.  With the photos already done, they headed right into the cocktail hour to join their guests in the festivities. When the cocktail hour ended, the party moved into the tent, beginning with a bunch of dancing, and only taking brief pauses from the dance floor, for eating, drinking, and speech making.  It was a celebration to remember!

As Kristen was sitting in the hairdresser’s chair, one of her bridesmaids came over to tell her about some small detail that was not going strictly according to plan.  Kristen turned to her and said, “People are only allowed to tell me two things today…Kristen, you look beautiful, and Congratulations”.  And you know what, she did, and the congratulations flowed all day, and her love and positivity showed on the smile she wore the entire day as she and TJ became husband and wife at the Hawthorne Country Club in Dartmouth, MA!

I began with Kristen and her bridesmaids at the Residence Inn in Dartmouth, MA.  It was a flurry of fun as the girls made themselves ready for the big event, then headed out to the stretch limousine that was waiting to take them to the Hawthorne Country Club in Dartmouth, MA.  When we arrived, Kristen and TJ’s freinds and family were already gathered on the deck overlooking the green fields of the country club to witness the happy occasion.  In a uniquely personal ceremony, Kristen and TJ made their lifelong vows to one another, then exited onto the property for a few photos.  Everyone was gathered in the reception room as they were introduced in, and the celebration began.  Food and drink and speeches and music and dancing kept everyone in the spirit of the night, and the dance floor was still hopping as I made my exit.

With all of the extra adventures that the NBA went through this year, it was great to see everyone back in uniform and ready to play.  And, more importantly for me, ready to have their photo taken for the Boston sports network that hired me for the shoot!  And just like last year, it was a whirlwind of activity, as I got to spend only five minutes with each player and tasked to get as many different looks as possible (just like a wedding day, right?).  I love a challenge!  Here are a few of my favorites.

I met Shaq, and he is much bigger in person than he looks on TV!  He also holds a special place in my heart, as I lived in Central Florida when Shaq started to make a name for himself with the Orlando Magic.  We were both so young back then…and at least one of us is still in shape (I’ll give you a hint, he’s the taller one).  Anyway, last week I was hired to shoot Celtics Media Day by a large cable sports network, and I jumped at the chance.  I got a few minutes to spend with each player on each of the sets the the network had set up.  It was crazy fast paced shooting, and it was a total blast!  Here are a few of my favorites for the day:
