Photos: Fenway Park Shamrock Series – Notre Dame vs. Boston College.

What a night! Here is a gallery of images from the Shamrock Series Football at Fenway Game between Boston College and Notre Dame. It was the first time football has been played at Fenway Park since 1968.

I was really excited to cover this. I knew it was going to be colorful and high energy, and the night lived up to expectations. The atmosphere was fantastic, and I genuinely had a wonderful time shooting. In my experiences as a photographer, there have been instances while working where everything else happening in life dissappears. You forget about everything that’s going on, and it’s just you and the camera and what’s in front of you. When that happens, it’s bliss, and it happened for me last night. It’s those times that keep you motivated and fresh as a storyteller. 

The game was the end product of a lot of hard work by a lot of good people at the Red Sox. Congratulations to everyone involved on a killer event!

This was a perfect way to start my 26th birthday weekend. I’m grateful for all the well-wishes on my birthday today! Thank you to all. It was an awesome year. Here’s to another one.

We’ve been really lucky this year. It seems like the late game, dramatic walk-off win has become somewhat of a regular occurrence with this current group of Red Sox players. 

On Tuesday night, at the end of the second game of a day-night double header, we got another one. After the Tampa Bay Rays tied the game up on an eighth inning home run, Red Sox outfielder Daniel Nava drew a walk in the bottom of the ninth. Moments later, outfielder Jonny Gomes came up to bat and crushed a two-run home run over the Green Monster. 

It was a great celebration from Gomes, who punted his helmet as he ran down the third base line. 

Let’s hope the exciting baseball continues!
