On March 7, 2014 The Nephrok! Allstars opened for George Clinton & Parliament Funkadelic at Boston’s House of Blues. I’ve been a devoted fan and friend of this band for a few years now and was lucky enough to go to this show as their photographer and document the set. Backstage passes! Media passes! YES!!! Not only did I get to photograph the Allstars but I got to stay and photograph Pfunk! What a night it was!
So I make ice cream. It’s kind of my thing. If you also make ice cream and you don’t yet own Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams at Home then you NEED TO RIGHT NOW!!! Here’s my version of her Backyard Mind recipe using fresh spearmint leaves and mini chocolate chips. Commence drooling
When Michelle “Mishy” first contacted me about photographing her & DJ’s wedding she introduced herself like this:
“A little about us! We’re both pretty silly and nerdy. We’re Whovians, Trekkies, Star Wars fans, and everything else under the sun. Our loved ones are important to us, as well as our personal beliefs. So our wedding is a combination of all those things. We really want to find a photographer who can capture our moments. We’re both quite quirky and strange, and have managed to find each other. Which is pretty rad.”
And it is pretty rad. When planning an engagement session they decided that they’d like to shoot at Dali which is the funky tapas restaurant where they got engaged. We arrived half hour before they opened so we started with a few pictures at the worn down garages across the street. I hope you all enjoy these images which include Mishy & DJ “not” being art, The Janice Joplin coat, tentacle engagement rings (yes! They both have one) and the interior of a super cool restaurant.

Here’s another wedding I second shot with Dan Gillan Photography back in October. Amy and Steve’s got married at The Stevens Estate and their wedding had real tears, real smiles, a cake to match the dress, and a high school garage band reunion. Oh… and Steve wore what’s called a party shirt which is essentially the mullet equivalent of formal wear. Definitely one of my favorites this year!
Here’s another wedding I second shot for Dan Gillan Photography. I love it when the couple and the guests know how to party it up!
Here’s a wedding I shot recently with Dan Gillan Photography. I was the second shooter so naturally I got to hang with the guys at the beginning of the day which is always fun. Here are some of my favorites!
I met Sax Gordon at Toad, a small music venue in Cambridge, MA (and incidentally, my favorite music venue in the world!) several years ago when he was sitting in with one of the bands. It turns out he’s a total rock star. And lucky for me Gordon saved my business card and hired me when it came time for some new promo-shots and an album cover. We had 2 different shoots. Here are some of my favorites
