Sarah & Matthew 9.27.14

Here’s a quick look through Sarah & Matt’s intimate backyard wedding. By keeping it small and hosting it at Matt’s parent’s house they were really able to be present in their day and share a lot of time with their family and guests. Overall the day was a great success. So much love, smiles & tears packed into a few short hours. A big congrats to Sarah & Matt!

Emily & Chris 9.13.14

e&cBlog-39

 

Emily and Chris got married at Camp Joslin in Charlton MA which is a summer camp for boys with diabetes. When camp is not in session they rent it out for weddings and private events and all the money goes right back the camp and the kids.  Pretty awesome huh? That being said, they are not a wedding venue so the couple was responsible for decorating the hall themselves. They certainly rose to the challenge. They purchased tons of string lights on clearance after the holidays in 2013. They hand painted constellations onto table runners, collected bottles and jars for a year to use as vases, and enlisted the help of friends to make a disco ball piñata! The couple created bear-charichatures of each guest for the seating chart (I even got one with cameras and red glasses!) and hand made enough friendship bracelets for everyone.  They brought in Smokestack Urban BBQ to cater the event from their truck so the guests got to feast on pulled pork, BBQ chicken and mac&cheese (yum!) amongst other goodies.  The rain held out long enough for the couple to have an intimate outdoor ceremony and a few family pictures. All in all the day was a great success and I hope you enjoy this small look into their special day. I certainly enjoyed being a part of it.

Vio & John 8.30.14

Here’s an inside look at Vio & John’s gorgeous wedding at The Atkinson Resort & Country Club.   Not only was it a beautiful day, but it was extra special to have so many of Vio’s family members who travelled all the way from Moldova to attend. It was an honor for me to share this day with them and I hope you enjoy this sneak peek of their day.

Upper Valley Portrait Sessions

 

UpperValleyFlyer2014-1

 

Hey Upper valley friends! It’s that time of year again and I’ll be making my annual trip home to see family, enjoy the foliage and shoot some portrait sessions! This tradition started because a friend of mine who I grew up with in Hanover asks me up to photograph her son each year for his birthday and figured I’d make the best of it. Please feel free to send me an email if you’re interested or have questions about the sessions and in the mean time feel free to check out my website and enjoy a few of my favorite images from last year’s shoots! Look forward to seeing you in the Upper Valley!

Amanda & Ryan 8.2.14

A big congrats to Ryan & Amanda for tying the knot! It was a bit rainy and overcast but that didn’t stop us from having an amazing day and getting great pictures.  Special thanks to Briggs Nursery for providing their space to us for portraits and to my 2nd shooter Laura Latimer for being amazing.

 

Sharon & Brett – 7.19.14

I hope you enjoy this little preview of Sharon & Brett’s wedding. My favorite part of the day was seeing all the awesome dance moves they had learned for their first dance as a married couple. The crowd went wild for it! A big congrats to these two! I’m honored to have been there to capture it. 

Lauren & Chris 7.12.14

This was a fun one! Everyone danced, everything was colorful, the ceremony was emotional and the weather was perfect! Enjoy this small look at their special day.

Rachel & Ben 6.28.14

Rachel and Ben got married on June 28, 2014. I knew from the start that I was meant to shoot this wedding. Everyone was relaxed and having a great time. The bride and her maids all wore red lipstick and red tortoise shell sunglasses. Oh… and red shoes! Any of you who’ve met me will know. Instead of hiring a caterer they ordered copious amounts of fried chicken and salad from Popeye’s and Whole Foods. They played their own iPod, baked their own cake and decorated the venue themselves. Lots of personal touches all around.  All in all the day was a great success and a ton of fun to photograph! Congrats to Rachel & Ben and special thanks to my 2nd shooter Brent Marianetti who is always a joy to work with.

Cunning Folk Cabaret – A Sneak Peek

Last night I had the honor of photographing Amy Kucharik‘s CD release party at the Oberon Theater. And what a crazy party it was! Belly dancing, burlesque, bands, aerialists and more! Here is a quick look at some of the amazingness! You can purchase Amy’s new album here (and I highly suggest you do) and “like” My Facebook page to see more images from this show coming soon!

Grilled Cheese for Layla

grilled cheese-7

 

I was recently visiting with my old friend Layla when she said “I’m loving the food photography but I’d like to see more savory foods. I need some grilled cheese or something!”

Later on that very evening I happened to notice that the lock screen image on her iPhone was a grilled cheese. So I knew what I needed to do.

Start with some quality bread and your favorite kind of cheese (cheddar!) Line one piece of bread with the cheese and the other with mustard or whatever condiment you like.

grilled cheese-1

 

Add a few slices of really crispy bacon and sliced fresh tomato. Some people are into chewy bacon. I get that. But when you bite the sandwich you want the bacon to break. You DON’T want the whole piece of bacon to come out with the first bite.

grilled cheese-2

 

lightly butter your bread then place in a frying pan on low heat. Flip it after a few minutes. LOW HEAT!!!! That part is important. You don’t want to burn the bread before the cheese even gets a chance to melt. It takes longer but it will be well worth the wait.

Then…

Eat up!
