I've known Megan for maybe 5 years as a fellow photographer out of Central MA. I think we were in a photography group together on Facebook and just stayed in touch. I reached out to her this past week letting her know I was interested in meeting up to take some photos and she agreed. She's been in business much longer than I have and has amazing work. Check out her website: perspectives-photography.com
So the day was pretty cloudy and on the cooler side, but that didn't matter at all. Getting together with photography friends is always fun as we can geek out over equipment, talk about our businesses and of course take some photos.
Due to the pandemic the streets were particularly barren, but we did find some nice areas with interesting texture and buildings for backgrounds.
Please note that I only had my 50mm lens with me so most of my photos are in that perspective.
Thanks for modeling for me Megan!!
All photos taken with the Fuji X-Pro2 and the 50mm F2.
This is another wedding that I recall very fondly. The venue was a relative's mansion by the water and it was stunning. The weather was really nice and bright that day. Marissa and Max were amazing with great energy and make it super easy to photograph their special day. This is another wedding I worked together with Deirdre Rakus Photography. I look forward to doing more weddings with her in the future.
We started the day with a couple photos of the venue outside before I headed in to meet up with Marissa and Max. They were both getting ready in different parts of the house. It really was amazing being so close to the water!
So I met up with the ladies first. They got the best view for sure.
Then I headed downstairs to check in on Max and the guys.
Then it was time to get that first look photo!
We then headed over to the beautiful venue area on the back side of the house and got ready for the ceremony to begin.
Then we got some photos close by before heading over the reception hall. Just fantastic weather!
Cocktail hour was already going on upstairs so I made my way up there. What a beautiful reception venue!
With cocktail hour over the reception hall was ready for everyone. The party was getting ready to begin!
What a fun day!!
I also wanted to show some senior photos that I've done in the past. These were all taken around the same time so I decided to put them together. Please visit back as I'll be posting more photo sessions and weddings on the blog.
The first three photos were taken at the Old Stone Church in West Boylston. The next photo was taken at Elm Park and the last two in downtown Worcester.
For the next few weeks I'm going to be re-posting some of the weddings I've shot in the past. This one is from 2015, but is still one of my favorites for the location, weather and a fantastic couple. It is also a wedding I shot together with Deirdre Rakus Photography. We've shot several weddings together and she's a joy to work with.
I started the day covering some of the getting ready photos with Jason and his groomsmen in their hotel room. They were all very easy going and just did their thing as I photographed them. I reminded them to pretend I wasn't there and I was able to get some nice photos. After that I headed to the venue to meet up with Leslie and her bridesmaids which were in the bridal suite. Everyone was excited and in anticipation as the hour approached. These are some of the getting ready photos.
This is a photo of the guys once they arrived at the venue a little bit before the ceremony.
Then, the ceremony began which was held outdoors in between the two main buildings with a nice view of the water.
After the ceremony the guests went to cocktail hour while the wedding party stuck around to get some formals. We took most of these at the larger building to the left of the ceremony. What an amazing place!
From there we headed back to the main hall for the reception and dancing!
It was such a fun wedding day. Congratulations again Jason and Leslie. Wishing you the best in your married life!!
Visit the blog again soon as I'll be posting another full wedding day soon.
All photos were taken with the Fuji X-T1.
So I've known Mike now for almost 10 yrs. Met him way back in the day at a photography club near Concord, MA and we've basically stayed in touch here and there to geek out over the photography world. We've taken very different paths, approaches and styles for sure, but the love for photography has always been there. Fast forward a bunch of years I switched from Nikon to Fuji, which gave us a bunch to talk about. I've been shooting with Fuji very happily for over 4 years and continue to do so. Mike has accumulated a ton of gear for his Canon system and a very solid business as well.
Recently I decided to reboot my photography business and of course he came to mind. Its always great to share ideas, discuss topics and chat photography. Its always great to meet up with others who have similar interests. We basically walked and talked, but I did get in some snaps.
