And they danced to the light of the moon…

Super Moon.
Super Moon.

I LOVE this photo and it reminds me of the poem “The Owl and the Pussycat”

A beautiful young couple, the historic architecture of downtown Salem and a Super Moon: what more could we have asked for?
We photographed Tom and Cecily’s wedding ceremony on July 11th at St. John’s Church in Beverly Farms and their reception at Colonial Hall in downtown Salem, MA. We went out to take a photograph with the great architecture of the brick building in the background and timed it perfectly so we could capture the Super Moon in a crevice between the buildings in the upper right section of the photograph! The moon stayed with us only for a few minutes, just long enough to capture this unforgettably romantic image.

Ben’s Bar Mitzvah!

A Bar Mitzvah is a rite of passage filled with ritual and tradition. And I love that part of it!

I was fortunate enough to photograph Ben’s Parents Wedding!  I feel like I’m part of the family!

And this guy was having the time of his life! He danced all night to the rocking tunes of DJ Maverick and quite frankly I don’t know how he could walk by the end of the night.

Beautiful flowers were arranged by Jeri Solomon from Jeri Solomon Floral Design.

Food was fabulous and catered by The Catered Affair  with Toby keeping her watchful eye on everything to making sure it came out on time and perfect. Kelly Delaney from Cakes for Occasions made this unique cake. Ben chose a sports theme. Check out the cool uniforms on the cake.

ImageWe learned how many special people Ben has in his life.

Ben was clever and creative with his poetry and inviting everyone up.

Bokeh Lighting

The effect shown below is called “Bokeh”. Bokeh is the aesthetic quality of the blur in out-of-focus areas of an image. To achieve the Bokeh effect photographers must use a shallow focus technique to create this pleasurable blue located outside the depth of field.

Creating is wonderful! And what a fun subject to use the lights from a carnival! Here, Louise Michaud is using her Canon 5D mark II to highlight the Salem Halloween Festival located in Salem, MA just north of Boston, MA. We are loving the complimentary colors balanced in the composition with the movement of the Ferris Wheel! Check out our other Halloween Video labeled “Salem’s Halloween Carnival”. If you have questions regarding how to use video on your Canon 5D mark II, Louise teaches 1-to-1 sessions that can be booked at any time. Named one of the best photographers in the North Shore, you are in good hands with Louise. For more information, check out her website for pricing and contact information.
