Ellis

It’s time for another seasonal blog post of Ellis pictures! Although these seem to stretch over the past 6 months somehow. Not quite sure how that happened. But here’s some moments ranging from the end of last summer to a recent trip to see Brooke’s dad and step-mom in Florida. Thank you for indulging me!

Miami

Last July I went to Miami with No Kid Hungry. We worked a lot in the middle of the day with little or no shade. I think it was one of the more difficult photographic situations I’ve found myself in recently. Although this took a back seat to what my New England hypothalamus was going through as it […]

Selfish

I started surfing just over three years ago. Since then almost everything takes a back seat to bumps in the surf forecast. I would say my wife and son are more important than my new surfing interest, but Brooke sometimes looks unconvinced when I try to stress this. My friend, and chief enabler, Ben, is the […]

Amanda and Curtis

I don’t get a chance to do a lot of winter weddings, but Amanda and Curtis’ Harrington Farm celebration reminded me why I love them so much. When it’s cold outside it seems the warmth and intimacy is heightened as everybody gets cozy inside. People warmed up by the fireplace after the ceremony and scorched […]

Best of 2016

My year started off in February with an elopement in Hawaii. Less than a week later I was photographing a wedding in Michigan. The rest of the year I made my way through New England, but I love the beginning contrasts. From warm weather paradise to Grand Rapids. I was excited for both, and I approached […]

Corey and Frank

Corey and Frank got married at the Cyclorama in the South End. This was my last wedding of 2016, and I can’t think of a better way of ending a great year. I didn’t get a chance to meet Corey and Frank before the wedding, but they were both extremely kind and pleasant to be around. […]

Carly and Jeff

Carly and Jeff got married on top of a mountain. Jay Peak in northern Vermont is a very special place to them, so it only made since to start their married life in the clouds. What started off as relatively tame day turned pleasantly bizarre as horse and unicorn heads appeared on the dance floor. My favorite […]

Ally and Mark

Look. It rained. The whole day. And I’m sure leading up to the wedding Ally and Mark were worried about what the forecast would mean for their Truro celebration. They had good reason. But in the end people still danced and laughed just as much as if the ground had been dry. I was definitely laughing most of […]

Orcas Island

Travis died in June. My brother-in-law was diagnosed with cancer in April, and things moved impossibly fast. His last days were so purposeful, and we mourned his immediate absence, but the idea that he was gone felt so abstract. We planned an east coast memorial, and everyone gathered and shared stories. We planned a west coast memorial, […]

Isabella and John

Isabella and John were married at the Willowdale Estate in Topsfield. Isabella got ready at her mom’s salon in Belmont. I loved photographing amongst all the activity in a place that has so much meaning. The whole day had such a strong feeling of excitement and celebration. That was particularly true on that dance floor which was […]
