Engagement Session: David and Felisa

I recently shot David and Felisa at what I believe to be one of the coolest museums in Massachusetts – the deCordova. The museum describes itself as more of a “sculpture park” which is far more accurate. As you walk around the campus, you come face-to-face with some truly unique pieces of art. I loved shooting these guys here – they are just as quirky as the park itself.

I loved how fearless they were, jumping on each other, on sculptures – truly taking advantage of the scenery.palagi 3

But they still took some time to be romantic! The sky was absolutely flawless today – it looked like it belonged in a museum itself.palagi 2

How iconic is this shot?! I’ve always been a fan of this sculpture by Jim Dine aptly titled “Two Big Black Hearts.” The deCordova is rife with unique and quirky pieces of art – a perfect setting for David and Felisa.

Senior Portraits: Samantha

When Sam approached me to do her senior portraits, I asked her what she had in mind.  She showed me some outdoor shots her friend had taken in the summer, and she wanted something similar.  After a lot of indecision, she then suggested taking shots in her Grandfather’s backyard.  As you can see, we came up with some better ideas.

Sam and I made a trip to the Charles River Esplanade in Boston, nailing the classic senior shot in front of one of the park’s beautiful willows.

 

We then started getting more creative, playing with the backdrops. Here’s Samantha in front of Boston’s gorgeous Financial District.

Samantha mentioned she is a dancer and busted out a leg kick that would impress an NFL punter, making for another great shot – look at that perfectly placed sun!

 

 

We hopped back into the car and made our way over to East Boston just in time to get the perfect sunset lighting. In then end, I’d say the Boston skyline turned out to be a little more photogenic than her grandfather’s tool shed. Thanks Samantha!

Boston: Custom House from Harvard Club

Working for the Joe Kearns Goodwin Campaign has been a wonderful experience, but even better is gaining access to some of the gorgeous and historical locations a State Senate candidate gets to visit. Last week I shot a fundraiser at the Harvard Club in Downtown Boston. I was in the perfect location to grab a few shots of Boston’s historical Custom House, which has long watched over Boston Harbor.

Check out some shots for the Joe Kearns Goodwin campaign.
