Worcester / Boston Wedding Photography… Hamptons Too!!

Valentine’s Day is less than a week away, which for some of you may mean you’re about to go off the market. Congratulations to you!! Your high school crush will be completely devastated, but, your soon to be partner-in-crime-for-life is in victory lap mode. Now you’ve gotta plan that wedding!!! Wedding photographers vary a lot in what they charge and what they provide and their style can range from trying to choreograph every moment to just being a fly on the wall. Depending on what you’re hoping to come away with when all is said and done, I may be a good fit for your big day. Please give a call or drop me a line through the contact page and let’s see if we’re as good a match as you and your BFFL.

 

Corporate Headshots: Worcester, Boston & The Hamptons

In today’s hyper-visual, social-media and image driven economy, your clients (or potential clients) like to know who they’re working with. Whether you’re a sole proprietor in need of a single headshot for marketing purposes, or your entire office needs a refresh of their staff portraits for some branding cohesion, I bring the studio to you! It’s kind of like picture day in grammar school sans the barbicide soaked combs… and no laser backgrounds either. (Sweater vests are up to you, but not recommended.) So, if you or your business needs an updated (and yes, retouched) portrait for social media, website, business cards or Linkedin profiles, please call or drop me a line through the contact page.

 

Worcester / Boston Engagement and Wedding Photography

For those of you who got engaged over the Christmas, Hanukkah and New Years holiday season, please let me be the umpteenth person to congratulate you, Congratulations!! Now the real fun begins… planning, planning, compromise, more planning, seating arrangements, modifying guest lists based on friendship hierarchy… or perhaps you’re contemplating resorting to “Plan B.” Another fun service I’m pleased to offer is for circumstances where you’d prefer to elope, I am available to tag along as your official “we’ll send photos” photographer.

Kidding aside, weddings are a blast, though there are a lot of moving parts. All wedding packages are tailored to your needs and coverage can be as loose or structured as you’d like your wedding photos to look. So please drop me a line through the contact page and let’s talk. Availability ranges from the Worcester / Boston, Massachusetts region, throughout New England New York and The Hamptons. Engagement sessions are also available, so please inquire! However, if after a few weeks planning, eloping sounds like a better idea, “have passport, will travel.”;)

Family Portrait Photography, Autumn in New England (Worcester/Boston)

It’s autumn in New England!! And for a few short weeks, the landscape of the northeast will be transformed into a vibrant kaleidoscope of magnificent color… and then you have to rake it up, ugh. BUT! Before you grab that rake, grab your phone and set up a time for a portrait session. (Or drop me a line via the “contact” tab.) Dates are going quickly as there’s only a very short window before the trees go bare and your holiday card will be the laughing stock of your social circle. Pressure is on! To quote Tom Brady, “Let’s Goooooooo!!!”

Theater Photography, Off Off Off Broadway, New York

Photographing The Summit was like being thrown into the deep end of an avant-garde performance art sensory overload smorgasbord. This production, directed by Tucker Marder, Isla Hansen and Christian Scheider, quite literally redrew the confines of Guild Hall’s John Drew Theater in East Hampton, New York. Complete with puppets, a live band, video projections and an inflatable nebula, it was eye and ear candy for theatergoers.
