Shari and Jeff were married at The Dolce in Norwalk. I have been at Dolce before, but back when it was a GE office complex and we would photograph brides on the premises. This day was too rainy and cold, but in the past we would shoot the bride in a bunch of different places on campus. One was a little island in the middle of the pond, another was a barn at the entrance of the property and another was the building itself, which has a nice rustic and sometimes modern effect.For many years, I have known Hazel, the banquet manager . Hazel used to work at The Silvermine Tavern, home of the sticky buns, the best buns in the universe. Now she is is leading the bride and groom through Dolce, a very nice venue. To the delight of all of the guest,  the party continued upstairs  where they were able to socialize, wind down and play some pool. Great night.

I got a call to shoot the FCIAC State Final game at “The Whale” in New Haven. No pressure!  I never photographed a hockey game before so I was like, yes!!! I will do it!! I was so excited to shoot, but the longest lens I had was a 24-105mm. One of my closest friends has a 70-200mm f.2 so I called him up and he said of course I can use it. Thank god for nice friends.For years he had this lens, and I always wanted to try it out. Now  was my opportunity. After getting a sense of where to position myself ( thanks youtube and the photographers from sports illustrated ) and a few pointers, I was ready to fire!  I hope you enjoy these hockey images, I really enjoyed the game and the fast action. It is a beautiful game to photograph and there is always excitement on the ice. Not bad for a first time right?
