Boston Photographer – The Colonnade Hotel Boston and The Knot Best of Weddings 2014

I woke up to see a post on Facebook from the Colonnade Hotel and their page on The Knot. They were selected two years in a row for The Knot Best of Weddings. Congratulations!! Great job!! In the post I noticed that they featured several of my images on their page on The Knot which, I was completely humbled by. Thank you Colonnade!! The Colonnade is located on Huntington Ave. across the street from the Prudential Mall, the Christian Science Center, right in Back Bay.

The location is perfect for weddings, events, or just enjoying Boston. I have enjoyed a stay at the Colonnade over a New Years. I was thoroughly impressed with the whole experience. Access was super easy being right off the Pike. I parked and was walking to the my room within 15 minutes of getting off the highway. Once we settled in we enjoyed a delicious dinner at the Brasserie JO before heading out for the night’s festivities. We enjoyed a night of fireworks and fun on top of a friends brownstone, which was awesssomeee! The next day we enjoyed a slow morning at the Rooftop pool with a scrumptious brunch and plenty of relaxing sun. Ahhhhhh… Perfect! If you are looking for wedding venue in Back Bay, check out The Colonnade Hotel and you’ll find a definitely luxurious venue. Check out their Knot page here.

Natick Photographer – A Personal Assignment to Capture Elm Bank

One of my favorite photography challenges is to take one lens, this time a macro lens (a lens to shoot small stuff) a 50mm 2.5 to be exact, my camera, and create a personal assignment. This time I took a little bike ride over to my local bastion of horticultural beauty, Elm Bank. Elm bank and the Massachusetts Horticultural Society is a great place to walk, play, take portraits, have a wedding, or just lay on the ground and stare into the sky. I was so happy to find a Lotus flower in my journey and created a few frames that I dig. Here’s what I captured.

Natick Engagement Photographer – An Engagement Shoot at the Minute Man National Historic Park – Concord, MA

Here’s an engagement shoot with Claire and Will at the Minute Man National Historic Park in Concord, MA. I shot this engagement session with a creative eye on intimacy. We started walking through the park and we found several locations that were great for foreground and background ambiance. Claire and Will were great to work with, they really have a love for each other that is rare and genuine. It was a pure pleasure to capture their deep love for each other. Here’s some of my favorite images from the engagement session.

Natick Wedding Photographer – Mechanics Hall – Worcester, Massachusetts

I was looking forward to this wedding day since I met Kim and Jeff. First the wedding and reception took place at Mechanics Hall in Worcester. Second, I had the pleasure to work with cinematographer Jeff Brouillet and thirdly, I knew from Kim and Jeff’s engagement session that their wedding was going to be full of excitement. I started the day off capturing Kim and Jeff getting ready at Mechanics Hall. While they were getting ready Jeff Brouillet and his crew were capturing HD footage for a same day edit to be featured later that night. It was a pleasure working with Jeff and his crew. It’s not often that I work with a well-organized and ninja like crew.

The wedding took place inside the hall on the stage. The hall is really a magnificent space. It is lined with beautiful paintings, ornate architecture, and a beautiful organ occupying center stage. It’s really a special and exquisite place for a wedding day celebration. During the ceremony Kim and Jeff recited a set of vows that I found very touching. The ceremony was finished off with a song that was performed by their JOP.

Once the ceremony completed I captured the group photos indoors then, took the wedding party outside to create some exciting images. The reception followed shortly after and I was pleased to hear that the Felix Brown band was performing. The reception was full of dancing and great music. Jeff surprised Kim and Jeff with his same day edit. It was amazing to see what was captured and how Jeff edited the day together. Kim and Jeff looked surprised yet, in awe of the results. Personally, it was the first time that I’ve seen such exceptional work from a cinematographer, on the same day. Wow! Here’s some of the images from their wedding day at Mechanics Hall that I love. Congratulations Kim and Jeff!!!

Boston Wedding Photographer – A Wedding Reception at the Barn at Gibbet Hill – Groton, Massachusetts

I recently shot an awesome wedding reception at the Barn at Gibbet Hill in Groton, Massachusetts, one of my favorite local wedding venues. Natalia and Ben were married earlier this year and wanted to share their wedding day celebration with their friends and family in New England. We were blessed with a spectacular summer day that was warm and capped off with a sensational sunset. We started the day off with family portraits then we had the introductions, first dance, speeches, cake cutting, and my favorite, dancing!

As the sun was setting (and vendor meals were being served) I headed outside to capture some amazing HDR images of the Barn and the surrounding property. The Barn at Gibbet Hill has a multifunctional use. There’s two wedding venues. One is the Barn and the second is up the hill at the old mansion called Top of the Hill (I’ve never shot a wedding there and I’m willing to make a great discount to the couple who does). There is also a restaurant Gibbet Hill Grill, a real working Black Angus cattle farm, and a vegetable farm as well. It’s really an amazing property where I have produced some of my best wedding images. Yeah, I have a deep love for the Barn and the weddings I’ve had there. Here’s some of my favorite images from Natalia and Ben’s day.
