On January 12th we were invited to The Commonwealth Vintage Dancer’s Great Gatsby Ball held at the historic Fairmount Copley Plaza Hotel. It was one of the most beautiful events we have ever photographed.
The event hosted 800 guest who were dressed to the nines. The Wolverine Jazz Band played 1920s standards all evening. If you are nervous about not knowing the Charleston and other dance The CVD will take care of you with their group dance instruction through out the night.
About 20 Years ago I worked in a photolab in Boston developing film for professional photographers while I was attending NESOP classes in the evenings and photographing bands.
Someone asked if I would photograph their wedding because they were on a strict budget. My life changed after that day. Within 5 years I was shooting over 30 weddings a year. I had a business, studio, and responsibilities. It was an amazing journey but after having children I realized that this wedding career did not fit my family's needs.
My studio moonlighted as an art gallery and that is where I discovered Vintage Glamour photography. By the end of 2008, I was fully devoted to the art and I realized it was my true passion. I still photograph weddings, but usually only a few personally selected ones a year.
A few years ago I met Miss Sara at a group photo shoot and began following her on social media. I lover her style and her blog really spoke to me. I worked with her time and time again and was so honored that she and Jim had asked me to be their photographer. I said "yes" immediately and couldn't wait for the day.
Congratulations Jim and Sara!!
