Presence in Abscence

One of our favorite magical qualities about the art form that we have the privilege of being able to practice is when we're able to create an image that clearly conveys individuality without anyone actually being in the frame.  Here's a few details from a recent wedding that helped prepare us for all the overwhelmingly beautiful and unique things we were soon to witness throughout the day!

 

 

 

Following the light

Back in the early 90's we had the great privilege of attending a summer intensive workshop at the Rocky Mountain School of Photography in Missoula, Montana.  Of all the great advice we were given by world renowned photographers, nothing echoes more than the words, "If you want to create extraordinary images, just follow the light."  Here's an image from a recent engagement session on Plum Island that was taken during the magical golden hour!

Step into our office!

There's really no words to express our profound gratitude for the beauty and inspiration that Plum Island provides for us, so here's some photos that hopefully do the trick!

 

 

"M"

"M" is for Marriage, Maia, Mr.& Mrs., Magnificent, Magic, Marvelous, Mesmerizing, and of course, MASS MoCA !!! Congrats to Maia & Alex and thanks for one of the best weddings we've ever been a part of !

We Gather Together

These words from the old Dutch hymn of gratitude are perfect for describing the spirit of Anna and Brian's wedding weekend.  Family and friends joyfully came together from all over  to be part of what was a most genuine display of love and togetherness.  

Purity & Abundance

Thank you Hannah & Ojas for the privilege of being a part of your Misslewood wedding and for the privilege of witnessing the pure beauty and affection that lives so abundantly within you, your family, and your friends.

Life’s a Beach

Eleni and Aaron are New Yorkers so they know the true meaning of “going with the flow. “  They never flinched at the idea of a November Chatham Bars Inn wedding. Just like a couple of real deal Cape Coddahs, they proved how  at the beach, life is different. Time doesn’t move hour to hour, but mood to moment. You must live by the currents, plan by the tides, and follow the sun. 

WHAT MAKES US DIFFERENT?

Recently, we’ve had some really great prospective client meetings where we’ve been asked the question, “So what makes you different than all the other wedding photographers out there?”  

First and foremost we like to express the notion that it’s easy for wedding photography to feel monotonous. Every wedding is basically made up of the same parts.  However, we greatly look forward to every wedding as we enjoy the challenge of always striving to see something different and conveying the true individuality of our clients. 

We have also had the unique privilege of working with some of the word’s most accomplished finer art photographers.  This means that every time we pick up our camera, we call on the inspiration we continually feel from those who have a very special way of seeing.

Testify V. Verb

To make a statement based on personal knowledge in support of an asserted fact; bear witness.

Well that about sums up the dancing that took place at Katherine & Alex’s wedding.

The highly expressive and often acrobatic dancing was the “witness bearing statement” and the “asserted fact” is that Katherine and Alex are a genuinely  amazing and loving couple !

Much gratitude and applause to the Dexter Lake Club Band !

Listen to the River Sing Sweet Songs

I swore I’d never be one of those guys who goes around quoting the Grateful Dead, but as long as Hannah just got her doctorate in music and she and her fiance Ojas chose the Charles as the backdrop for their engagement session, I couldn’t help using the lyrics of one of my favorite songs about rivers.

So if I had the honor of giving the toast at Hannah and Ojas’s wedding, I’d raise my glass high and go on to say, fare thee well, love each other more than words can tell and listen to the river sing sweet songs to rock your soul.
