The unseen unheard photographer

The unseen unheard photographer

Are you that photographer who only uses natural light, shoots on P and won't talk to his bride and groom or interact with them at the wedding.  You are paid to be awesome, you spend the day with the bride and groom and you're tasked with giving them an awesome experience.

So part of my wedding package is the engagement shoot. This is time when we get to bond, know each other and have fun. I want to be more of a friend than of a photographer for your wedding day. I want you to be completely relaxed and unguarded and enjoy your wedding day. This is a few pictures of Ian & EB's engagement shoot a few weeks ago.

LB Wheaton, Sigma 150-500

So if you're thinking about buying a lens or want to check out some cool equipment then head down to LB Wheaton. I stopped in and had no idea that I would be walking out with a super telephoto lens. Being able to hold it in my hands and experience it was enough to put me over the edge. Great experience at LB Wheaton.

So for this engagement shoot I thought we would shoot somewhere completely different, Green Hill Park in Worcester. I've only recently visited this park, seeing it from afar for my entire life. I was surprised to find it clean, spacious and welcoming. There is a small petting zoo, a Vietnam memorial, ponds, woods and picnic tables. We spent some time walking around and getting used to the process of having ones photo taken. Here's the photos.  #engagement #wedding #greenhillpark #worcester #unitymike

Europe, me, camera, car

Europe, me, camera, car

Mike, camera, car, Europe, 2 weeks. What could go wrong.

Traveling alone everywhere I can via car in Europe. Exploring and taking photos. I'll be documenting as much as I can via Iphone, Canon 5d and regular uploads to my blog. 12 countries in under 2 weeks sounds pretty damn awesome to me for a vacation.

Wachusett Mountain never gets old.

Wachusett Mountain never gets old.

Sure, i've hiked Mt. Wachusett hundreds of times but it still doesn't get old. Trails are maintained and updated as well as the new road to the top which was laid this past year. The summit touts a new updated tower and base station as well as more spring cleaning i'm sure to come. Here's some of my photos from my past trip with Tommy G. Haran

Fire in Worcester, 43 Bowdoin St & 40 Williams

Fire in Worcester, 43 Bowdoin St & 40 Williams

April 24th, 2014. Fire at Bowdoin Street and building behind house on Williams Street. I happened to be in my car with some equipment and headed over to get some photos. When I arrived and made  my way around the area to various angles I could see that the Worcester Fire Department had the fire well under control. Police blocked off the streets and neighbors watched. A few residents from the building were in the area and we're easy to spot. I wish them the best and hope family and friends can help them out like I was helped with my apartment fire a few years ago.

How to own that Maid of Honor speech.

How to own that Maid of Honor speech.

The Maid of Honor has a very important role, to pour out all the nice things they could ever say in a 3-4 minute speech as well as tease the bride a bit. This is a companion blog to my Best Man Speech blog that i've posted previously. I hope you read and enjoy this. These are just a few pointers from the dozen or so weddings that I attend a year.
