I'm not sure what I can say about the Codman Estate that hasn't been said before. It's SUCH a great venue. There is so much to work with there. I shoot there almost exclusively and every time I go I use the time to get another angle that I haven't done before. They recently mowed this grassy area. It was once all filled with weeds. I was lucky enough to be one of the first to photograph from this angle. There is just enough tree cover to get a great photo with the sun peaking through. Carrie-Ann and Brandon were such good sports about getting tons of photos. When I first meet Brandon, all I could think was that he looked like Nomar Garciaparra. I am such a huge Red Sox fan, when I met him, it was the first thing I said. They are such a sweet couple and the wedding at the Codman Estate was really simple yet beautiful.
Being one of the top wedding photographers in Boston is a hard honor to achieve. I know I have been doing this a really long time, and I have seen some great photographers. Being one of the top Photographers means you have to be able to adapt to any situation you are given, and that's something I strive at.
The Codman Estate brings on such a challenge depending on the time of year and the weather. I am happy to say I have shot so many weddings there, in so many situations, I am a pro! I have shot a hurricaine there, I have shot a thunderstorm, I have shot inside and outside, in the gardens and in the carriage house. Since it's primiarily an outdoor venue, the weather plays such a tricky part of how the wedding will unfold. Its good to have a photographer who can adapt to the situation you are given on the day of.
