Mexico Dreams – Michael & Jessica’s Playa Mujeres WeddingMay 16, 2017


I’m long overdue for some blogging and so, today, I bring you back to my first wedding of the year: Michael and Jessica’s February 12th wedding in Playa Mujeres, Mexico.  I have to let you know, it was slightly stressful in the few days leading up to the celebration. I actually thought I wasn’t going to make it at all.  Traveling with my friend and talented videographer, Shane, we originally were slated to leave for Cancun on February 9th.  With a wild winter storm approaching the New York area, our flights were cancelled well before the snow hit and we didn’t end up leaving until that Saturday, the 11th.  The airlines couldn’t even get us on the same flight.  It was totally chaotic but we made it with time to spare before the rehearsal dinner.

After dropping our bags and soaking up a little sun, we met Jess and her girls for a quick photo session.  This is one of the things I love about destination weddings.  I’m not just there to cover the wedding but the entire weekend experience with friends and family.  Think of me as a guest who happens to be a professional photographer. How lucky am I?

As with all destination weddings, this one was intimate and incredibly emotional at times.  During the best man’s speech, Todd, Michael’s older brother, paused while noting a point about their past.  That pause led to tears, not only his but everyone else in attendance; including me.  I was literally hiding behind my camera.  It’s in these moments, that I’m so lucky to do what I do. Connecting with that very energy that sent everyone into water works is what drives and fills my core, and inspires my work.

 

Michael & Jessica, thank you so much for having me be apart of something so magical.  I wish you nothing but the best!

-Tim

Laughter & LoveJanuary 4, 2017

Here’s a quick first post for the New Year.  I’ve got some serious catching up to do on the blog with so many wonderful weddings and moments captured in 2016.  It will be a challenge, as my life is about to change in a huge way the arrival of my 2nd child and first son, any day now.  I’m beyond lucky in life and can’t thank those who have supported me in this adventure enough.  Here’s to new adventures filled with more laughter and love in this new year!

A Catskills WeddingJune 6, 2016

No GPS, no street signs, no problem. I had a map. Remember those? Haha.. Seriously though, I pulled into the first driveway I saw off this road and luckily it was where Gina and her bridesmaids were getting ready. I was preparing myself for a shotgun welcome. Ahh but this view! When my car first scrambled up this gravely hill, firing rocks all over the place, I knew I’d be back for this shot. Weddings can be an adventure but this one was an adventure just to get too.

Destination San FranciscoApril 6, 2016

I’m so excited to be traveling back to San Francisco this summer to capture an intimate wedding! It’s one of my favorite places to just be and enjoy the sites. Not to mention my brother Devlin lives there.  If you’re interested in booking a session or photo meet up, I’ll be in the Bay Area from 7/30 to 8/4.

Luke & Micaela’s Laurel Beach WeddingMarch 24, 2016

Luke & Micaela’s wedding, what can I say?  This was one of my favorites by far, for so many reasons.   First, this was about as hometown as it gets for me.  A Milford wedding? on the beach- Laurel Beach?  I could stop right there and tell you stories all about the good ol’ days spent in that neighborhood.  I could probably get myself and Wes, Micaela’s brother, in trouble if I mentioned some of our childhood adventures.  And, I could tell you, knowing Micaela and Luke for some time now that they are some sweetest and kindest people I know.  I’m so excited to share these images now, as they’re expecting a baby soon!

Every wedding is truly special and I cherish all of the loving moments I get to be apart of, but this one was so close to home, literally.

 

Enjoy a few select images captured on film from this beautiful day.

Mike & Rachel: A New Haven WeddingAugust 23, 2015

I know I’ve said it before and every wedding photographer probably feels the same way, but I have the best job.  I literally press a button on a machine and all it does is captures love and this wedding had no shortage of that to go around.  It was awesome for me because Rachel and I have known each other for some time.  I met her through one of our long time friends, Matt, when he and I were battle DJ’s, turntablists if you will.  So yeah, that’s like 100 years ago.. haha.    It was great, Matt flew in from Canada to spin some beats and another long time friend, Gene, had his band rocking the party.   Quite a reunion of friends and family celebrating with the bride and groom.  I even think there’s a video of me doing the running man with Rachel out there somewhere.. yikes!

 

Mike & Rachel, congrats to you both and thank you for having me be apart of such an amazing day.

-Tim

This is the place: CaliforniaJuly 20, 2015

In April, I had the pleasure of working with my good friend, Neil Landino, in California.  We shot one of his friends weddings at Firestone Vineyard in Los Olivos.  Needless to say, it was an incredible experience and all around great time.  When he first asked if I could help shoot the wedding, I said yes, of course, and started thinking about what else I would do while on the west coast.  My brother and sister live in Venice Beach, so getting into trouble with them was a must.  Coincidentally, another good friend and his family from Connecticut were on vacation in the same neighborhood.  I saw them and took some family portraits on the beach.  It also happened that my sister was graduating from Second City Hollywood the night I arrived.   I got to see her perform live and it was beyond amazing!  Maura and I also had a chance to work with each other.  Along with the help of another good friend, Kelsey; wedding planner extraordinaire, and my Aunt and Uncle; a creative dynamic duo, we put together an editorial shoot in the mountains above Thousand Oaks.  It was a jam packed week of visiting, collaborating, and celebrating with family and friends.  I can’t wait to do it again!  Below is a small sample of images from this memorable trip.  Everything was captured on a Pentax 645n with a variety of different film stocks.

Enjoy,

Tim
