Less is more.

Nothing is a better reminder of why we love our craft than being able to capture a moment that is less about skill and more about slowing down and being present.


Third one's a charm!

Of all the beautiful blessings that make up the 7 blessings of a Jewish wedding ceremony, we love the third blessing the best! Here's Melissa circling her groom as the blessings are recited. Beautiful words for a beautiful couple!

Blessing #3:

"May your journey together be blessed with generosity and forgiveness. May you enable each other to fulfill your dreams, and may you be committed to the paths of courage and hope. Blessed is the Source of Generosity who created such good, remarkable people…you two!"

Crowd Sourcing

There's the classic definition....

the practice of obtaining information or input into a task or project by enlisting the services of a large number of people, either paid or unpaid, typically via the Internet.

Then there's our version....

Much thanks to Melissa and Julian and the great staff at Glen Magna Farms!

Shadows of Sureness

The strong light coming through the window during these proud and loving parents' toast and the long shadow it cast, is a sure sign that they always have been and always will be right by the side of their son in his journey through life.



Someday this proud dad will pass on his cuff links and help his son figure out a bowtie. 


Picture in a Frame

Calling on a great song to express how much we love it when we see a frame within a frame. 

love you baby and I always will
I love you baby and I always will
I love you baby and I always will
Ever since I put your picture
In a frame

- Tom Waits

Falling into place

Marriage is all about different parts coming together and falling perfectly into place. Hence this great still life that we discovered right before the ceremony in the backroom of the beautiful Unitarian Universalist Church in Newburyport.


Seeking Inspiration

As an artist nothing is more satisfying and exhilarating than being involved in a creative process and feeling like you're the only one in the entire world doing what you're doing at the time you're doing it. Right now, today I'm fairly confident that I'm the only wedding photographer making a connection between the renown photographer, Alfred Stieglitz's timelessly beautiful portraits of Georgia O'Keefe and the images of a bridesmaid from a recent wedding.  It's this way of thinking that enables me to see something unique in every wedding. 

Chicken finger daydream

Though the  only thing on her mind was probably when the chicken fingers were going to be served, we like to think she was actually daydreaming about her daddy walking her down the aisle someday.
