Carolyne and Joseph were married at the Inn at Longshore. I can’t say enough of how nice it is to shoot at The Inn. I always try to get a shot of the whole party. I bring my 8 foot ladder and at the end of cocktail hour climb to the top and take the photograph with that real awesome background. Don’t worry, I have never fallen off.
Laura and Eric were married on a gorgeous Saturday afternoon. Laura was not ready when I arrived so I chatted with the father of the bride about my second favorite subject. Dutch soccer. Photography is my favorite. He has his head quarters in Holland so it was a no brainer to hear his stories of The Netherlands. What a wonderful, interesting man. Once Laura was ready for me, it was a real nice flow of candid and semi formal pictures. Laura had a lot of ideas for shots and I had a great time catching her ideas. I love any input. Eric was a true gentleman and really wanted to grab pictures at Compo Beach. Compo Beach is my second studio, since I live so close to it, I use it a lot for both wedding and family portraits.The reception was at my favorite place, The Inn at Longshore. The staff treats me like I am one of their family and the finger food is the best! Oh, I forgot, the best part is the scenery. there are just so many places on the grounds to get wonderful shots.
My father was the photographer for Pepperidge Farm for over 25 years. He photographed all of their products, cakes, cookies, turnovers and of course the famous goldfish. Our house was never short of Pepperidge Farm goodies. I remember always opening the freezer and seeing it full with turnovers! Godiva chocolate is owned by Pepperidge Farm so I guess you can say I was spoiled in the chocolate department. It was an extreme pleasure to have the President of Pepperidge Farm, Mr Calaghan invite me into his office and talk about my dad, I was so proud of him, and I still am.Pepperidge Farm hired me to photograph one of their chefs for an ad campaign. I am glad they decided to keep it in the family.
I had a call yesterday from my close friend Marielle and she is in a wedding coming up this fall. She is a bridesmaid and is helping her friend ( the bride ) find a facility on the water anywhere North of New Haven. My first suggestion was The Saybrook Point Inn and Spa where my good friend Lori Woll is the banquet manager. I have known Lori for over 20 years and she is fantastic to work with.The facilities are gorgeous, it is truly an amazing place! right on the water and they have great brunches too. Here are samples of a wedding I photographed at The Saybrook Point Inn.
Dao and Gary were married in Weston on a gorgeous April day. Thank god there were no April showers! Gary is in the navy and will be serving on an aircraft carrier in a few months. It was fun to hear him explain nuclear propulsion to ten year old boys before the ceremony. He has nerves of steel. Dao is simply gorgeous and her friends were just as nice. Alison Milwe Grace hosted the wedding and her company AMG Catering did an incredible job of decorating and cooking awesome food. Please enjoy the photographs.
