Yearly Archives: 2012

Lovely setting is The Westport Playhouse. The dog park is adjacent to it and the building is truly magnificent. On the other side is a great restaurant called The Dressing Room. Happy New Year! May 2013 be a truly wonderful photographic adventure for all.

 

Happy Holidays from our studio to you! This is our annual Holiday Card shot of our kids. Penn(4) Elle (9) Case (12) Sinjin (7) Coco the puppy 14 weeks. Missing from this picture is me ( behind the lens ) and my gorgeous wife Elizabeth (making funny faces at the kids).

 

Some weddings are unforgettable. Courtney and Phillip’s wedding will forever be in my memory. The weather, the people, the venue, it was all good. Real good. The ceremony and reception took place at The Woodway Beach Club in Stamford. The really cool part of the ceremony was that they installed a mini tent where the limo pulled up and dropped the bride off in it so no one could see her before the ceremony. Then, on que, Courtney stepped out of the tent and walked down the aisle. After the ceremony we flew through pictures because an enormous cloud was on it’s way. Ten seconds after my last shot there was torrential downpour. The rain did not last long and we were fortunate enough to get some really cool shots of the interior. My favorite picture is of Phillip emptying Courtney’s shoe of sand after pictures. The band. Oh my…. what a great band this is… The Downtown Fever Band out of New York, they were totally awesome. Then the groom takes the drums during a break and his band starts jamming like the best tunes I had ever heard. I guess it was the moment, but I am so fortunate to have the opportunity to work some really excellent weddings. The dress? The Plumed Serpent. Simply gorgeous.

 

When I got the call to photograph Megan and Brian’s Wedding, I knew it was going to be a fabulous wedding. I photographed Megan’s sister’s wedding a few years ago, and their family is such a delight to work with. The wedding ceremony was at the Chapel of the Snows in Stratton Vermont. After the ceremony we took the gondola to the sumitt where we enjoyed a champagne toast. The reception was held at The Stratton Mountain Resort which was rustic but very very cozy. I really enjoy new settings such at Stratton Vermont, it gives me a chance to capture images in very unique settings. The Jay Stollman Band drove up from Westport and provided the outstanding music. The gorgeous flowers was created by Tara Pollio Designs her bouquets included really cool partridge feathers.. Chris Kim shot video, he is a lot of fun to work with.

 

Cheeseburger by Station Eats and vodka by Tito’s? I am so there. Near and Far asked me to photograph their Band Together gathering to raise funds for families in Fairfield County affected by Hurricane Sandy. The fundraiser was held at Fairfield Theatre Company and it was my first time at the venue. It is really such a cool spot. The seating is very close to the stage and it is very intimate. The cocktail hour with burgers and vodka was excellent and then the band played. Harman/Kardon  donated prizes and had an on site “man cave” with such really excellent electronics.
