Guest Shot

December 7th, 2011  |  by  |  published in Featured, Shoot


If a wedding were a movie, the bride and groom would be starring in the leading roles. They’ll get most of the closeups and the camera will linger on them throughout the day. We’ll also see other supporting members of the cast as they interact the couple or react to the unfolding events. Then there are some people in the movie we’ll barely see at all, but they play important visual role of populating the universe of the film. Without them, the feature film wedding would merely be an short subject elopement. That’s why I often go out of my way to create photos that include wedding guests as part of the composition.

As wedding photographers, we all shoot the guests. We often try to get a shot of as many guests’ faces as possible for the bride and groom. Those shots are important but they’re not quite what I’m getting at now. And to be clear, I’m not also talking about shots like this:

Shoot What Matters, Take Your Time

June 1st, 2011  |  by  |  published in Featured, Style

I knew in hiring my favorite photographer for my own wedding a couple weeks ago, that I would not be disappointed in the outcome. I’m a huge fan of her style. That’s a severe understatement. I knew that I could trust her to do her job, to do it professionally, to not need direction, and to wow us.

She photographed me in angles I’ve never seen of myself, that are so similar to old images of my grandmother. She made special care to capture every detail that we spent so much time and energy on, collecting in antique shops and having custom made. She forever froze moments of my daughter and I that I know she will absolutely cherish and pass down to her own children. She photographed my handsome husband in the way I want to remember him when we’re old and gray.

The most important thing that she did was capture the day the way that I truly remember it, and beautifully. She took her time with us during the portraits and made us feel at ease. We would have held our breath and stood on our heads, had she asked.

Earl & Stacey: Boston Harbor Hotel Wedding

August 20th, 2008  |  by  |  published in Mingle

Stacey and I recently photographed one of the most elegant weddings I’ve ever had the pleasure to witness. I was especially excited to photograph it because although I’ve worked on same-sex weddings, this was the first lesbian wedding I’ve shot. Sarah and Meghan made a wonderful couple together, and it was interesting to see how their personalities were expressed in their different approaches to the day. Below are just a few of my favorite moments from their day.

Sarah had her hair and makeup in the beautiful light of one of the elegant mezzanine rooms that the Boston Harbor Hotel has available.

Meanwhile, Meghan and her friends hung out in her hotel room and prepared for the wedding in their own way.

Having gotten ready with others, they then privately shared a first meeting. Meghan waited downstairs for Sarah to arrive. Sarah walked the length of the wharf, coming up behind Meghan. When Meghan turned they saw each other for the first time they fell into each other’s arms.

I love shooting with my good friends and working with the fabulous Rhode Island Wedding Photographer Stacey Doyle is a special treat. This amazing portrait of the couple is just one of the magnificent images Stacey captured.

Then it was off to the ceremony.

The ceremony was a touching and beautiful affair that took place in the round under a gorgeous cascade of flowers and crystals created by Winston Flowers. Sarah and Meghan read vows they had each written, exchanged rings, and were married.

While the guests left to enjoy cocktails, the room was transformed though the talent of the BHH staff, Suzanne B. Lowell Lighting Design, and Winston Flowers all coordinated through their amazing their event consultant, Michele Mottola.

Earl and Jamie at the Boston Harbor Hotel

March 30th, 2008  |  by  |  published in Mingle


This past Fourth of July Weekend, Earl had the pleasure of shooting the wedding of Cara and Matt, a truly fun, warm Boston couple. The shoot was going to be logistically a little complicated, as the guys were getting ready in the North End, the gals were getting ready at the Boston Harbor Hotel, the ceremony was going to be at the Glavin Chapel at Babson College in Wellesley, and the reception was back at the Boston Harbor again. Wow!

Photography was important to Cara and Matt, who wanted simultaneous coverage in multiple locations so Earl definitely needed a second photographer. As luck would have it, Jamie was available to help him out. Any day shooting with Jamie is guaranteed to be full of surprises, but this day held an extra special surprise. While Jamie was shooting the fellas getting ready, he thought that one of the guys in the wedding party looked familiar; it was Scott, whose Cape Cod wedding Jamie was about to shoot in a couple of weeks!

So Cara and Matt were lucky to have Jamie as a second photographer, and Jamie’s couple, Deanna and Scott, got a preview of the talented Mr. Wexler in action! Here are a few of our favorite photos from the day:
