Kristin and Kevin…Married!

December 22, 2010 1 comment

From the moment we walked in to meet the Kristin and her bridal party, the excitement was palpable. It was clear that family and friends loved Kristin and Kevin dearly, and this was a much-anticipated wedding – Kristin and Kevin were middle school sweethearts and were finally tying the knot! I’m so glad i got to tag along with Katie of Nitchie Photography

Kristin was such a sweet bride – absolutely gorgeous!

While Katie spent some time with Kristin and her bridesmaids, I got to spend time with Kevin and his entourage. They were such a fun group!

The ceremony was closed for photography, but we managed to grab some quick shots at the very end

aaaand a shot from the first dance! I tried to experiment a bit with B&W editing with this set.

and a few detail shots to round out the night.

Kristin and Kevin, you guys are absolutely fabulous – Best Wishes for your new life together! and Katie, thanks for letting me tag along

November 8, 2010 2 comments

In the spirit of catching up, today I’m featuring the wedding of Diana and Greg! I shot this wedding with the amazing Shang of Shang Chen Photography last spring!

Diana and Greg have a special connection to MIT, so they chose to get married at the MIT Faculty Club – a fabulous venue with a great view of the Boston skyline!

Here are some of my favorite shots of the day!

I absolutely L.O.V.E Diana’s headpiece – so classic and elegant!!

Diana’s Wedding Party was so fun –

After the “first look” and the bridal party portraits, we stole Diana and Greg away for a few quick portraits before the ceremony!

Thanks Diana and Greg, and Thanks Shang for letting me tag along!! (check out her post here!)

Hello readers!!

Up next on the blog is a double header – an engagement shoot with the lovely Kimberly and Bill with Shang Chen Photography (check out her blog here!) and my portrait shoot with Debbie Davis Photo (check out her blog here!)

I’m not even going to tell you when I did these sessions – it’s quite embarrassing how long these photos have been sitting in my queue – somehow life has just gotten away from me the last few months with a lot of new changes and new challenges, but things have settled down a bit, so I’m hoping to be more diligent about updating on this blog!

First up is my engagement shoot with Kimberly and Bill on a lovely spring day in Boston’s historical Beacon Hill district – Kimberly had the most adorable dress, and her shoes were To. Die. For (I have to admit, I have a sliiiight obsession with shoes…)

.

We drove over to this lovely park where we caught this GORGEOUS view of the downtown Boston skyline at sunset


Thanks Kimberly and Bill for letting me share this part of your adventure – wishing you all the best! and thanks Shang for letting me tag along- your mentorship has been a tremendous inspiration! Check out the rest of the gallery here!

Up next is the awesome Debbie Davis of Debbie Davis Photo – Debbie contact me off my website back in the spring, expressing her interest in photography – as a new photographer myself, I was so excited to talk to someone else who was learning about the ‘biz and share our ideas! Since then, Debbie’s career has blossomed tremendously, and I’m so excited about all the fabulous things she’s doing!

Here are a couple of quick shots from our session

Jamie and Scott, Married!!!

Hello readers!

First of all, apologies for the LONG hiatus from my blog – I was traveling to India and immediately after my vacation, I moved to my new home in New Haven, CT. I’m so excited about the move and the new journey that life is taking me on! BUUUT, things have been crazy as you can imagine, and this has left little time for photo editing and even less time for blogging🙂  So expect a frenzy of posts in the next few weeks as I catch up on my queue!

So, a few months ago, I mentioned that I auditioned (and was hired!!) for a second-shooter position with Nitchie Photography (check out that blog post HERE) – Up next is the wedding of Jamie and Scott that I shot with the fabulous Katie Nitchie earlier this summer! Thank you, Katie, for this opportunity

Jamie and Scott got married in late May at the Foster Pavillion at the Boston Harbor Hotel in downtown Boston. It was a fabulous day for this fabulous couple to tie the knot!

However, the day began at the Radisson Hotel, where Jamie and her ladies were getting ready ….

Then, it was on to the ceremony! the venue was perfect for Jamie and Scott’s intimate wedding. One of my favorite parts was when Jamie and Scott chose to read their own vows – you could definitely feel the love in their words and how they expressed themselves!

LOVE Jamie's expression here!

After the ceremony, Katie and I stole the newlyweds away for a few portraits before the reception

I tried some interesting contrast editing on this last one - what do you think!?🙂

And here are a couple of my favs from reception to round out the evening – this crowd was SO much fun to be around!

CONGRATULATIONS Jamie and Scott, and thank you for letting me be part of your day – you guys are awesome! and THANKS Katie for the opportunity!

Riho and Jason

June 7, 2010 3 comments

Back in the winter, I did a shoot with Riho, a sophomore at Boston University (check out that blog post here!). This was one of my first shoots “on my own” (so to speak), and I was so excited that Riho liked the pictures!!

BUT….I was totally blown away when, after our shoot, Riho contacted me about doing a couples’ shoot with her and her boyfriend Jason! At this early stage in my photography, it’s always great to hear positive feedback on my work – and what’s more positive than a client asking to work with me twice!!!

SO, once the weather got better, we met for an early-morning shoot around the Reservoir – I really love this area!

Here are some of my shots!

This is probably my favorite shot from this set - they're so sweet!!

Riho & Jason, I had SUCH a great time working with you! Thanks SO much!

Susan and Gary…Married!

May 29, 2010 5 comments

Way back last year, when I first began exploring photography, I assisted Alex of Jarige Photography with an engagement shoot for Susan and Gary. It was my first time participating in an official “photoshoot,” and I was so thrilled to be tagging along! And they were such a fabulous couple to work with.

SO, you can imagine how excited I was when Alex called me a few weeks ago and told me that Susan and Gary had agreed to let me shadow/assist her during their wedding!!

The wedding was held at the beautiful Lanam Club out in Andover MA (I’m getting to explore so much more of Boston/MA since I got into photograhy!!), and we had an absolute gorgeous day for the occasion.

Susan had her mother and a friend helping her get dressed! and of course, her dress was absolutely gorgeous

Susan and Gary decided to do a “First Look” – this is where the Bride and Groom choose to see each other before the ceremony, giving them the opportunity to spend a few precious moments together before the events of the day and connect before the wedding. I’ve come to realize how important these few moments can be – often, a wedding day is so filled with people and activities, that these few moments may very well be the only quiet moments that the Bride and Groom get to spend with one another throughout the day! It was beautiful to see how much Susan and Gary cared about one another and what this day meant to them!

The ceremony was held outdoors in the courtyard, and was the perfect location for the small, intimate gathering of close family and friends.

All in all, it was a beautiful day! Be sure to check out the rest of the gallery on my FLICKR page! Congratulations to Susan and Gary and thank you for letting me be part of your special day! and THANKS Alex for the opportunity!

Headshot session with Kyung-Ah!

May 24, 2010 1 comment

A little while ago, I had the opportunity to assist Steph Stevens of StephStevensPhoto with a quick headshot session around Boston Commons/Public Gardens! Steph’s beautiful model was Kyung-Ah, an extremely talented musician who needed headshots for a program brochure for an upcoming performance. Kyung-Ah was so much fun to work with, with a quiet sense of humour and playfulness that I’ve tried to capture. Oh, and I was completely in love with the color of the dress – isn’t that the most gorgeous purple you’ve ever seen?? (Those of you who know me, know that I have a weak spot for purple!)

Couple of things I need to continue improving on

  • Improving on understanding depth of field
  • maintaining consistent skintone while editing

Thanks Steph, for letting me tag along!

Here are some of my shots! Check out the rest of the gallery on my FLICKR page, and please be sure to check out Steph’s post on her blog!
