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.

Hamptons Event Photography: Martha Edition

So I looked at my thermometer the other day and it indicated it was hot out… that could only mean one of two things; 1. my thermometer is broken, or 2. it’s summer!! Summer on the East End means events, parties, galas, parties and parties. Last year I was fortunate enough to “party” with Martha Stewart. Of course by “party” I mean I was taking pictures while everyone else partied at a charity gala she was hosting… that’s ok because a Martha insider DID find me a seat at the table once my journalistic duties were fulfilled. The cuisine was outstanding! A fair amount of my photos made themarthablog, so (click here) to see what’s it’s like to party “Marthastyle.” If you’d like me to party with you and take photos while doing so, please give me a call or reach out through the contact page!!

 

Palm Beach Florida, Family Portrait Photography

No, your eyes aren’t playing tricks on you, the photo below was taken in Southampton, New York. This time of year, the East End beaches aren’t an optimal location for a family portrait, clambake or vitamin D fix. To this end, I’ve temporarily relocated to West Palm Beach, Florida for the winter and am available for portrait, head shot, commercial, real estate, wedding, event, social media content and nearly any other photography need. If you’re among the fortunate to flee Old Man Winter, please call (508.353.0504) or drop me a line via the “contact” tab.
