Wedding: Hilary & Chris – Whitefield, New Hampshire.

Here is some new wedding work from late this summer! Hilary & Chris had their wedding at the beautiful Mountain View Grand Resort in Whitefield, New Hampshire. A perfect day and a fantastic couple to work with from beginning to end. All the best to you both!

Wedding: Ana & Nixon – Brighton, Massachusetts.

Here are photos and video from Ana and Nixon’s wedding earlier this summer! What a beautiful day. I met Ana on a corporate shoot I worked on several years back, so I was  thrilled when she called back to have me shoot her big day! I shot the video above, and Marissa McClain shot the photos. 

Wedding: Chelsea & Matt – Bonita Springs, Florida.

From the World Series to their wedding day, it’s good to be a Barnes!

I’m excited to share this gallery of photos from Chelsea and Matt’s beautiful day at the Hyatt Regency Coconut Hotel in Bonita Springs, Florida. I’ve worked with Chelsea and Matt for a few years now, through their engagement and best moments at Fenway Park, so I was thrilled and honored to shoot their wedding. Drop these two fun-loving people together into a perfect, sunny Florida backdrop and it’s impossible not to get great pictures. This gallery above shows the highlights from the day, shot by myself and Eric Lee of Eric Lee Photography. Also be sure to check out this great video trailer from by Drew Carlisle of Tried & True.

A huge thanks to Chelsea and Matt for having us there!

2018: Year In Review.

 

It’s again time to look back. I do this at the end of every year as an exercise to review the progress I made and work that I did over another twelve months as a photographer. 2018 was wild! It’s impossible to remember all the things that happen every year, and this year I felt that was the case more than usual. I took on a lot and pushed myself as hard as I could, and things were really busy – maybe too busy at times. 

Above is a gallery of my favorite images and favorite memories from 2018. Click on any individual photo to enlarge it. I’ve also included some of my favorite video pieces from the year. 

I completed my ninth year as a photographer working in Major League Baseball, and my seventh as a Boston Red Sox team photographer. This year marked my first year in a new role as Manager of Photography, which proved to be a rewarding and challenging new opportunity. In our marketing department, we continued to grow and produce unbelievable content together. We pushed the boundaries in terms of access, creativity, and style, and I’m so proud of the work we did as a team together in Red Sox Creative Services this year. Oh yeah, and we won the World Series. What an epic year of baseball on the field and team camaraderie off of it. I’m lucky to have experienced a second World Series Championship in my time at the Red Sox.

I tried to maintain my freelance business while navigating a full-time Red Sox schedule. In my freelancing, it was a year of both growth and change. There were some jobs I had done in the past that I wasn’t able to take on this year, and there were other new opportunities that arose that I’m very grateful for and excited about. I’m always looking at ways to grow and evolve my business, and I’m excited to continue to do so in 2019. 

On the video side, I shot, edited, and produced more work. Video is a continual learning process for me, but feel that I’ve made valuable partnerships this year and upped the production value and quality within my video work. 

I also got my feet wet in public speaking this year, delivering a TED Talk in Boston and presenting at the Future M Conference and to the Ad Club of Boston. This has been a difficult and daunting but also rewarding learning process, and I hope to build and improve on my speaking in the coming year as well.

Otherwise, things are great and I have no complaints. Alaina is here with me in Dorchester and I couldn’t be happier. I’m very thankful for the important people in my life – family, friends, colleagues, and mentors – who provide so much support and encouragement every day. You all know who you are.

Thank you as always for following along all year! Happy New Year!

2019 is a fresh start.

Wedding: Casey & Daveson – Boston, Massachusetts.

Here’s photo and video from Casey and Daveson’s downtown Boston wedding! We had a blast covering the day from beginning to end. The photos in this gallery are shot by Marissa McClain and Kathryn Riley, and I shot and edited the video piece. 

A big thanks and congratulations to Casey and Daveson – a couple of stars!

ENGAGEMENT PHOTOS: Chelsea & Matt – Naples, Florida.

Here is a gallery from a recent engagement shoot with Chelsea and Matt in Naples, Florida. We found a great little spot to shoot called Seagate Beach, which gave us both natural and beach looks to work with. 

Thanks guys for having me shoot these!

ENGAGEMENT PHOTOS: Maggie & Evan – Baltimore, Maryland.

Here is a gallery of new engagement work with Evan and Maggie, shot at Fort McHenry in Baltimore, Maryland. Engagement shoots are always fun, but better when shared with friends. I’ve known Evan since we were first graders, and I couldn’t be happier for him and Maggie. There will be no wedding photos from me though. Can’t wait to be a groomsmen for the wedding this summer! 

WEDDING VIDEO: AMANDA & RICKY – QUINCY, MASSACHUSETTS.

New wedding work!  Here’s the sizzle reel for Ricky and Amanda’s wedding in Quincy, Massachusetts last fall. This video was shot by myself, Rob Gooding, and Lauren Foley of 309 Productions, who also edited the piece. 

The footage was shot with a combination of a Canon C300, Canon and Nikon DSLR cameras, and the DJI Mavic drone and DJI Osmo.

A big thanks to Ricky and Amanda for letting us document their day from start to finish!

WEDDING VIDEO: Bryan & Mackenzie – Baltimore, Maryland.

Here’s a highlight trailer video from Bryan & Mackenzie’s wedding at the Elkridge Club in Baltimore, Maryland earlier this summer. Everything about the day was perfect, from the ceremony out on the golf course to the confetti finish on the dance floor.

A big thanks to my old friend and former coworker at Ritz Camera (back in the day) Daniel Regner for the killer slow motion footage on the second shoot. A huge thanks as well to the Burros and Hanley families for having us out to document the day!
