Welcome to

THE BLOG

In the days leading up to Eric and Katelyn’s Beauport Hotel wedding, the weather forecast was not on our side. It was pretty much a guarantee there would be rain to contend with, but I held onto hope it would hold off long enough for us to take advantage of the beautiful scenery unique to Gloucester, MA. It was touch and go all day; however, as the time approached for Eric and Katelyn’s first look to take place at Stage Fort Park, the rain continued to delay its arrival. It was extraordinary luck that we did not have a single rain drop fall the entire time we were there, allowing us the opportunity to capture the family formal photography, group shots with the bridal party, and plenty of time to create some beautiful, artistic imagery of just Eric and Katelyn. It is no exaggeration to say that this was a stroke of extraordinary luck. Shortly after leaving the park and in the minutes before the ceremony, the clouds began to build and it became very clear to everyone that Eric and Katelyn’s wedding would be quickly moved inside. Just as the bride took her place at the end of the aisle, the skies opened up and there would be torrential downpours for the rest of the night. But the rain could not dampen the spirits of this amazing couple, or the incredible friends and family that came to share in the joyous occasion. And while everyone was able to stay dry for the most part during the exchange of rings and vows, there was hardly a dry eye in the crowd. Even with the uncooperative weather, the entire day went off without a hitch all thanks to the incredible staff at the Beauport Hotel. Were it not for their help and attentiveness, I would not have been able to get the creative night shots of the couple one can only get on rainy evenings like this. Perhaps it is true what they say about good luck and rain on your wedding day.

What inspires a photographer to take a shot? Aside from the technical aspects constantly consuming my mind, the thing that I am looking to capture, that motivates me to lift the camera and release the shutter, is emotion. As a wedding photographer, my subject is people. What separates people from other inanimate subjects is the ability to express emotion. Emotion conveys the subject’s experience and thoughts. Emotion tells a story. Without it, even the most technically sound photograph is just not the same. So when a wedding comes along like Hector and Emily’s where everyone is comfortable expressing their emotions, I am thrilled. From the first moment the groom, Hector, laid eyes on his bride, he was moved. As was every guest who came to witness this beautiful couple exchange vows. There was not a dry eye among them by the time the officiant pronounced them husband and wife. But it wasn’t all joyful tears captured that day. There were plenty of smiles, laughs, and tons of dancing to photograph throughout their Saphire Estate reception. It was the perfect end to a perfect day to capture some truly inspired images for Hector and Emily to enjoy for many years to come.

Predictability can be a wedding photographer’s best friend, but it can also be a worst enemy. When you move at the speed of a wedding, it is nice to know your environment like the back of your hand. You know where to get the best shots at the right time of day. You can rely on a sort of autopilot to make sure you get all the images that a couple has hired you for without skipping a beat. With that being said, as a photographer you want to be creative, to push the limits of your imagination. That can be difficult if you are too familiar in the environment where you shoot. With that being said, photographing Anthony and Erin’s Danversport wedding was like having the best of both worlds. Having worked at the incredible Danversport many time over the years, I don’t have to worry about logistics like where to go to get the best shot. And much to my surprise, after a very busy winter renovating the decor, it was like walking into a brand new space. This really got my creative juices flowing. Adding to that, Anthony and Erin were the ideal couple to photograph on their wedding day. There wasn’t anything these two weren’t willing to try. There are not many brides who would find a good enough reason to lay out on the ground in their pristine, white wedding dress. As far as Erin was concerned, she couldn’t find a good enough reason not to. The results are a collection of inspired images to commemorate Anthony and Erin’s truly special day.

The first challenge a wedding photographer must face with each new wedding is the couple’s attitude about photography. There are many reasons why a person, or a couple, feels self conscious in front of the lens. With Pete and Linda, none of those reasons applied. These two are a wedding photographer’s dream couple: cool, calm, collected, and so much fun to photograph. Every time I approached the couple about a shot, they were ready to go. They were comfortable being photographed, and they took direction like pros, which allowed me to explore new and creative ways to capture images for their wedding. I could not have asked for a better day and nicer location than the Chocksett Inn to have as the backdrop for this incredible couple. With its proximity to the historic Old Stone Church, its quaint gardens, and impeccable staff, Chocksett Inn is a tried and true favorite for capturing beautiful rustic weddings like Pete and Linda’s. With everything coming together so perfectly, it is no surprise they will have a gorgeous collection of images to commemorate their special day.

There is nothing quite like getting to shoot a beautiful wedding at a beautiful venue on a gorgeous spring day in New England. The only thing that makes it even better is when you get to create some amazing photos for an incredible couple like Adam and Kasandra. I cannot tell you how easy it makes my job to be working with a couple like these two. Not only were they open to doing just about anything to get the shot, but they were enthusiastic about it. It makes the day feel less like work and more like spending a good time with friends. And speaking of friends, it was great to be back with the friendly staff of the fantastic Zukas Hilltop Barn in Spencer, MA. There is no better place than this to be photographing a wedding against the backdrop of a gorgeous landscape and dramatic skies. Everything about the day came together in a perfect way to create the images Adam and Kasandra had hoped for to document the story of their wedding day.
