I recently had the good fortune to shoot Boston Magazine’s 50 Best Restaurants feature with my good friend Michael Piazza. What follows is my contribution to what was definitely one of the tastiest shoots I’ve done.
On the cover is this tasty Pasta dish from Giulia in Porter Square
Followed by O Ya in Chinatown.
A special thanks goes out to Asta on Mass Ave. After a couple of weeks of shooting I was a bit under the weather when I walked it, but they were so welcoming and warm. They definitely carried me through.
Steel & Rye in Milton was a pleasant surprise to find over in Milton. The rustic decor welcomes you right into such a large space. Thanks to Bridget Tivnan for the extra food styling help!
It was amazing to see the inner workings of the one and only Menton in Fort Point, from the rituals of the candle lighting to the pre service stretches.
Definitely take the time to check out the Salty Pig in Back Bay
This dish at Clio was a work of art that narrowly missed being the cover.
Mei Mei Street Kitchen wowed us with their hospitality, serving up three wonderful dishes.
Last but certainly not least is this artfully arranged apple pie over at Hungry Mother in Cambridge.
Check out my latest work on the Improper Bostonian’s article Setting the Tone and Table featuring the work of local wedding planners and designers.
For the opening shot New England Country Rental utilized their massive warehouse space to build us an entire set, complete with a faux grass wall! It was pretty wild to see these talented folks do what they do best.
Next I caught up with Lauren Wells of Lauren Wells Events at her home in South Boston to photograph this beautiful moody blue table setting.
One of my favorites from the shoot was this tablescape from Lo McShay at Lolo Events in Cambridge.
Finally we headed up to the north shore to shoot this subtly simple table from Tangorra Wedding Planning
Worked with my great friend Catrine Kelty to create the cover image for Edible Boston‘s story on Far From the Tree Cider
One of my favorite assignments this summer was the Lois Lowry story I shot for New York Times Magazine. The author of the cult classic The Giver was vacationing up in Maine, so Matt and I packed up the car and made a road trip out of it. We spent a beautiful summer day cruising through Vacationland, listening to some tunes, and catching up on our travels. When we arrived Lois showed us to her barn, which made for the perfect studio, and got set up. We spent the afternoon chatting about why they took so long to turn the book into a movie, what Jeff Bridges is like in person, and what kinds of things her fans write letters about. All in all just a great day to be a photographer!
It’s been a while since I’ve updated the blog, mostly because we’ve been out having awesome adventures! It’s time to get back to work but first I thought I’d share some outtakes from our summer travels. I spent some time hiking Mount Washington with my good friend Matt Baldelli, fit in a little time at the beach, and a took a trip to Scandinavia with Maria. Enjoy!
