Mark & Shaney at the Samoset
Posted in: Weddings
If you saw yesterday’s post, you might have caught this treat – we had two weddings on Memorial Day weekend, and they were both at the Samoset! Sunday’s wedding was with Mark and Shaney. We had worked with them both last fall on a Romantic shoot, so we knew how much fun they were, and had a pretty good idea that getting them to laugh and enjoy themselves wouldn’t be a problem. Of course, we didn’t know how much fun their families were going to be…
A great wedding – the Tony Boffa band (they’re always terrific!), cocktails outside and a plated dinner in the ballroom – everything was in place for an incredible night, and Mark and Shaney’s wedding certainly lived up to it.
Here are a few of my favorites. I’ll have the rest of the images up in a week or so, and will add the link to this post. Thanks for looking – Will
Wow, right! This is the Rockland ballroom at the Samoset, fully set up, and waiting for the party to start.
I had to end with this shot. I don't even remember taking it, but when I saw this image of Mark and Shaney in each other's arms, while everyone around them was throwing down, I knew it would be one of my favorite images ever. This is wedding magic right here.
Okay, look at the upside down reflection in these water pitchers. Chet shot this, and I just love that he saw it.
The plane of focus on a macro shot like this is really shallow - sometimes only a sixteenth of an inch will stay in focus, so lining up the points you want sharp is crucial. I'll admit, it took me a dozen tries and gaffer's tape to get these rings lined up and all in focus, but I think this shot is worth the time. Beautiful rings, guys.
Note that Dad doesn't have a camera in his hands - perhaps the only time all day...

I'm probably doing incredible damage to the camera sensor shooting straight at the sun, but I love the effect it creates. It really lets you feel the vibrancy of the day.
This the man himself, Tony Boffa, as he and his band kept the dance floor filled.
