I photographed Alex’s Bat Mitzvah and it was a blast. I have a lot of history with her parents, I photographed their wedding 18 years ago at The Candlewood Inn in Brookfield. My wife was pregnant with our first child and I actually got the call that night that she was going into labor. For years I would see Neil and Michelle around town and they would mention how someday I would photograph their  Mitzvah’s.  I was very excited to shoot for them. We started Alex’s Mitzvah at Temple Shalom in Norwalk and then had the reception at The Inn at Longshore in Westport. I know both places very well.

Stamford Nature Center was the perfect setting for Anna and Seth’s engagement shoot. I have been to the nature center many times, family portraits, children portraits and a few times with my four  kids. My children love the animals and running around. There are many trails and many photo opportunities. Chickens, geese and we even got a look at the otter, who I have never seen until this day. Inside it is really rustic and cozy. Even though it was very cold outside, winter did not keep us away. Here is a sample of  a wedding I shot at The Stamford Museum and Nature Center.

I had a great time hanging with the next generation and taking their pictures. it was a lively bunch at a private residence in Westport for The County Ball. I got dressed up and set up a plain white background. I brought portable lamps and the evening was lots of good times by all.

A client called me and asked if I could take photographs of horses for her. She said her boyfriend was not interested in buying something online and wanted a local photographer to get the shot. I love these challenges!! I had such a fun time shooting the horses. I first went to a farm close to The Patterson Club in Fairfield and the owner came out and yelled at me. I wasn’t in the pen, I was just shooting from the fence. Then she told me I can shoot but I could not use the pictures. After brainstorming with my wife, she told me of an obvious friend who had horses, goats, chickens and even a big pig. It was a very cold day and I lost feeling in my fingers for 4 hours, but I was happy with the results.
