Photo Restoration Services: Archiving Your Family History

With the advent of multiple websites helping trace your family history (and the movie Coco,), genealogy as a hobby has made a comeback!! Visiting the family plot has new meaning as you look down and can better understand how the heck you got here. In the old-timey days, photographs were a luxury and often one of a kind. Unfortunately, if not properly cared for, many of those photos may be deteriorating leaving your family tree with missing branches. Digitizing (scanning,) restoring (Photoshop,) and even printing them is worthwhile and a proactive way of archiving the family legacy for future generations. If not for your great grandchildren, do it for your great uncle Lyle.

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.”;)
