Sarah and Don – A Castle Island Engagement – A Fairy Tale Romance

We met at Castle Island in Boston for Sarah and Don’s engagement session. It’s the site of Fort Independence so there were lots of great places to photograph this incredible couple and their fairy tale romanace.
I often ask the couple how they met. Sarah told me that she and Don were at a dinner with some mutual friends. She had known Don … having seen him at other events.  But that night … when she saw him, it was as if they were the only two people in the room.

 See?  I told you.  A fairy tale romance story.

 Here’s a fusion video from our day together.  Careful, you’re going to be wicked jealous!,

An International Golf Event – Right at Home

When you’re asked by a major insurance company to photograph their annual golf event, but you can’t tell anyone who was there or where it was played or … let see, I guess that’s it … Oh, for God’s sake, show anyone the photos of the players!  
Well you grab the chance to do it of course!
This is an image of one of the player’s golf club covers … (can you guess who’s??) …no animals were harmed … but some golf balls were bruised

 The course was incredible – I had my own cart. and I was driving like a mad man!

 My job,  find the gophers … I mean golfers and take team photos.  I can do that. 

 I just can’t show you any of them.

 And then there was the food … it was so good.  Just look at this – cooked on the “patio” with this view.

One day I too will have a bed room window that looks out over this type of view … yea right!

Travis Roy Foundation / Francisican Hospital for Children – Wiffle Ball Tournament

The First Annual Travis Roy Foundation / Franciscan Hospital for Children Wiffle Ball Tournament was held at Wake Field in Brighton, MA on June 18, 2011. Everyone had a great time supporting this worthy cause. It was as awesome day!

Ok, that’s my official first paragraph.  But to be candid, it was a blast to be there and volunteer to photograph the event. It was also sad and happy and “eye-opening”.

The event was held on the tiny wiffle ball field behind the hospital which is named after Boston Red Sox player Tim Wakfield .

It was sad to see the children and adults in wheelchairs, happy to see all the corporate sponsers and their teams hitting that whiffle ball with a yellow plastic bat. Eye-opening to hear Travis Roy during his opening remarks say “I would like to be on the field with you, maybe one day I will”.

(footnote – Travis was injured during the first 11 seconds of his college ice hockey career) \

OH!  and it was delicious.  The food – hamburgers, hotdogs, etc was … Excellent!

Here’s a video look at the day.,

Beth and Joe’s Family session was destined to be awesome from the very first shot. They love to be together and these incredible images just happened. I didn’t want to stop!

Kelly and Mike – A Fenway Park Engagement – Dan Busler

We met at Fenway Park .. on a game day ( oh yea) for Kelly and Mike’s engagement photo session.  At first I thought that it was going to be chaos … and I was right.

I drove into town, but I still took the subway up from where I parked my car to Kenmore square where we were going to meet.

This huge sign greets you in Kenmore Square as you come out of the subway – it was so colorful that I had to take a shot. 

I think what I like most about photographing couples that recently got engaged is learning about their lives together. 

Mike is a postal carrier, he told me that he walks 10 miles a day. As we walked the streets of Boston, if Mike got too far ahead Kelly would just say “slow down mail man …” and we’d all just laugh.

We walked from Fenway Park down though the Public Gardens and on to the Charles River .
It was great day with this incredible couple.
