rachael and matt | eshoot | sandy hook

rachael and matt are some of the most genuine, caring, and compassionate people I know.  together as a couple they bring out the perfect blend of personality, quirkiness, laughter, and joy in each other’s lives.  it was apparent the moment I met them.

you’d imagine my surprise when they showed up to our engagement shoot with a few undercover cops trailing right behind them.  as the do-rag donning police officer questioned the alarmed couple, I stood a cars length in front wondering what the hell was going on.  apparently matt’s obnoxiously-dark tinted windows in combination with a brief turn is grounds for suspicion.  since no one got any tickets, we were making jokes about it all day. icon smile rachael and matt | eshoot | sandy hook

enough talking.  it’s time for me to share a few frames.

dillon | family lifestyle | NYC

this past tuesday I had the pleasure of shooting an awesome family in NYC.  we met up at grimaldi’s pizza a few blocks away from the Brooklyn bridge.

here is a small sneak peak…

ps- tom carried an entire bag of extra clothing (easily weighing 40 pounds) all across nyc, over the brooklyn bridge, and even through the labyrinth of new york’s subway system.  hero status.

erin and mark | wedding | the showboat

erin and mark have serious style.  erin is soooo good at making things, she made her own bouquet, centerpieces, and even the boutineers for the guys.  the bouquet was made out of pages from the odyssey, that is quite literally epic! :)  so badass!  they got married in atlantic city at the showboat and i found a ton of cool, unique, and downright awesome photographic opportunities while shooting there!

this was the first time erin’s father saw her on her wedding day and he couldn’t hold back the tears…  he was one hell of a nice guy.

Erin & Mark- What an awesome wedding! I’m disappointed we weren’t able to be part of your special day, but I’m so glad that I was able to point you towards Pat. It looks like it was such a fun day.

Pat- You rocked it man… and you owe me lunch. hahaha Awesome shots!

tim dinofa - f 7, 09 - 5:54 pm

i don’t know what i like more.. the composition, the amazing couple, the details, or the fact that you pulled off some ridiculously awesome images in a room that is as dark as they come. clap clap…

erin - f 11, 09 - 12:47 am

Pat! Speechless…we couldn’t be happier. THANK YOU!!

erin - f 11, 09 - 2:13 am

oh yea.. and I have to give a shout out to natalie v (my bridesmaid and most creative friend) for making all the centerpiece vases in the pottery studio and to mark for being a huge help making all the flowers. and again pat – you guys were super awesome!!

magan - f 11, 09 - 9:57 pm

I love this photographer, I am jealous that I didn’t hire this guy for our wedding! I’m glad we could be a part of yall’s special day =) What was not superb about 8/01/09? NOthing, I have to say: yall killed it, on point, like hot butter on your breakfast toast… It was fan-tab-u-lous-oo… We love yall and glad to claim Erin and her family one in the same.

vince - f 22, 09 - 1:47 am

Amazing shots… what lens(es) were you using for the whole shoot? Also, for the last few shots at the dance floor, was there an off camera flash behind everyone? Or was that just a spotlight? Love the effect!
