A trip to Boston for Matt and Liza’s Wedding was a great way to start the new year. I love shooting at venues I have never been to and always look forward to it. We got started at the Waterfront Renaissance Hotel where Liza and Matt got ready. The ceremony was at The Gate of Heaven Perish. The church was absolutely gorgeous. There was plenty of space for me to move around and I even managed to climb on the balcony for a few panoramic images. By the time the ceremony ended it was already dark outside and the weather was frigid. We didn’t let that stop us and made the short trip to Dorchester Heights Park for a few portraits. The party was in The Harpoon Brewery in Boston and we all enjoyed amazing beer. Some guests even took quick tours of the plant. The food was amazing and the beer plenty. Everyone had a great time.

Congratulations Matt and Liza!

Happy Ney Year!

It’s time once again for my favorite blog post of the year: The Year in Images. 2015 was my busiest year ever and it was a lot of fun. I shot 34 Weddings, photography and video. I got to travel all across New England and even shot a Wedding in Chicago (my sisters). Here are my favorite images from every photoshoot I did during 2015.

Bring on 2016!

Top Hat Entertainment, Burlington VT

After a well deserved break it was time to get back to work and it felt great. Meghan and March chose The Ponds at Bolton valley for their Wedding. The venue was beautifully decorated for the Holiday season, including a Christmas tree with ornaments inscribed with well wishes by guests. The weather was unseasonably warm and although we didn’t get much snow we got temperatures in the high 40s that allowed us to get outside and do some shots by the pond. The food was amazing, and the cake was delicious. Mike from Top Hat kept the dance floor full and everyone had a great time.

Congratulations Meghan and Marc

Waterfront Park, Burlington VT

What a great week we had. It seemed like the summer had returned for a few days. There was even plenty of foliage left on the ground and on some of the trees. We took full advantage of it for couple of quick Family Lifestyle sessions with Hannah, Chris, Knightly, Kanon, Molly, Tom and Jackie.

What a gorgeous day to end the 2015 Wedding Season. It was cold and the saw brief flurries of snow but it was all worth it. The foliage was at it’s peak, and the day was clear and sunny. John and Jacqueline got married at Sharp Park in Milton. Despite the cold they decided to stick with the original plan and get married outside. It was a great decision and it paid of in the many gorgeous images. After the ceremony we piled up in a truck and climber the Sharp Hill for the breathtaking view of the valley. Jacqueline and John soldiered on through the cold and we got it all done. Then it was time to warm up in the barn and have some amazing thanksgiving food and cupcakes for desert.

Thanks John and Jacqueline. Congratulations!

William and Lindsey tied the knot Friday night at St. Isidore. Lindsey rolled in an 50’s Chrysler and although it was pouring I still managed to get a great shot of the newlyweds with the car. Afterwards was the welcome event at Jay where we all enjoyed delicious barbecue from Alice’s Table Restaurant and great cocktails.

Fortunately for all of us the weather was much better Saturday. Although it was a little chilly the skies were blue and most importantly the rain was gone. Fall foliage was in full peak at Jay and it was gorgeous. After taking care of all the formal portraits we did a short tour of the grounds in search of the best backgrounds.

The reception was crazy and fun. Undisputed, a great band came all the way from New Jersey and they kept everyone dancing and the dance floor was packed until the end.

Thanks to Lindsey and William for letting me document their amazing weekend. Congratulations!

Catamount Country Club, Burlington VT

It was another gorgeous early fall day and it was time for my second visit to the Catamount Country Club this season, this time for Nick and Jonathan’s Wedding. I love shooting there. The venue is great with plenty of opportunities and the staff is super accommodating and relaxed.

The rings were walked down the aisle by Jackson, the couples doggy. He wore his tux and top hat like a boss. After Nick and Jonathan made it official we jumped in the golf carts for a quick tour of the course. Although it was quite early for the foliage change there were a few spots around the course that had plenty of fall color. It made for great a background for some portraits that were less formal and a lot of fun. It was another wild party with great food, a lot of beer, crazy fun dancing, cake and a candy bar.

Thank you Nick and Jonathan for having me document your gorgeous day.

It was another great Vermont day with clear blue skies, a breeze and plenty of sunshine. After Hannah and Gordon said I do and sealed with a kiss in the Jay Barn all the guests toasted with Champaign at the tram base. We hurried up to the top for some stunning portraits of the couple. By the time we made it down the cocktail hour was in full swing. At sunset Hannah and Gordon’s Rabi performed a traditional Jewish marriage ceremony under a chuppah. It is a beautiful tradition that has been performed for thousands of years and it’s a lot of fun to photograph. With all the formalities done it was time for the party. And it was wild. The horah was my favorite part and made for some great shots. We topped off the night with a great sparkler send-off.

Thanks to Hannah and Gordon for choosing me to be a part of their big day. Congratulations!

Kevin and Molly will say I do almost an year from now so it was the perfect time to get their Engagement Session done. They showed me some amazing overlook spots on Okemo mountain that gave us amazing backdrops. It was a clear early fall day and you could see for miles and miles away. We got to enjoy all the beauty our great state provides us with and got some great photos. We were even joined by their pup Hazel.
