Dustin and Hilary, 7/19/08

This summer our dear friends Dustin and Hilary finally tied the knot! I was so honored to be photographing the event!

Down the road of life (or something equally smooshy)

They chose the beautiful Mill Pond Center for the Arts in Durham, New Hampshire as the site for the wedding and the reception. The weather just barely cooperated with us, but we managed to get some beautiful photos in the brief moments of not-rain we had!

Maggie and Steve’s Wedding

Maggie and Steve's Wedding!

On August 11, I was honored to be the photographer for Maggie and Steve’s wedding reception in South Portland, Maine. Having been officially married exactly one week prior on the island of Samoa, this was the big party for friends and family back home who weren’t there for the real thing. It was a great party!

On October 8, 2005, I was honored to be the photographer for my dear friend Celeste’s wedding to Joe. Together they have a beautiful daughter Sofia. The whole event was just lovely and so very much fun. It was a joy to be there and share the day! Check out my flickr site (under “Celeste and Joe” the “Weddings” collection) to see more pictures from the day.

This was actually the last wedding I shot with film before making the switch to digital. As nerve wracking as it was at first, it is SO MUCH easier to be totally digital. Where as before I had to worry about running out of film and should I use black and white film or color film and what speed should it be and on and on. Now, I just click-click-click knowing I can take as many photos as I want (especially now with my 2 gig card!) and make any of it color or black and white and I can make instant decisions about what to change if there is not enough light. It’s so much easier! And printing capabilities are improving every day. It is so much easier to make really beautiful wedding albums now too! So much fun to be had! Yay for technology!

This photo was taken of my brother Dan and me at our step-cousin Jackie’s wedding, September 9, 2006. Though I wasn’t the official photographer on this particular wedding, I did take a fair number of photos (you can head on over to my flickr site to see more). I have to give props to the women who were officially responsible for the photography that night for one very specific thing. This red couch. It was a small touch of brilliance. They set up this very inviting couch with a camera facing it. On the couch was the remote for the camera. Anyone could just come up, sit down and take their own photo! It was better than a photo booth! Though I must say, they should have made more people aware of it. We just sort of stumbled drunkenly over and started fiddling with things. At which point the photographer’s assistant came over and told us what it was. We got to see some of the images later and they were a total riot. By the end of the evening people were getting REALLY stupid.

Good times, good times.
