Boston Engagement Photo Shoot at The Boston Public Gardens | New Hampshire Wedding Photographer

Boston Engagement Photo Shoot at The Boston Public Gardens | New Hampshire Wedding Photographer

Boston Engagement Photo Shoot at The Boston Public Gardens

Last week I had an amazing photo shoot in Boston, MA. The couple was great. The weather was great. The shoot was great. We spent most of the time in The Boston Public Garden. The park was busy, but we found small areas of solitude to make some great images. Here area few. I shot more casual and in the moment. It was great and so much more fun then a posed shoot. We took some posed shots also but the couple was great and happy to just be together in the park. If you view my wedding pricing. You will see that most of my packages include a free engagement session. These sessions can take from 1-2 hours. These are a great way for use to get to know each other a little better and go over any question you will have about your wedding day and your photography coverage. Many engaged couples use these photos for their save the date wedding invitations. It is a great reminder to the time just before your life together truly is forever.

Wedding at Mountain View Grand Resort & Spa | Getting Married at a Omni Hotel in New Hampshire

Wedding at Mountain View Grand Resort & Spa | Getting Married at a Omni Hotel in New Hampshire

Wedding at Mountain View Grand Resort & Spa

Venue: Mountain View Grand Resort & Spa
Photographer: Joe Martin Photography

 

The wedding I want to share with you today takes us to one of Mount Washington Valleys most northern resorts. I was at the New Hampshire wedding venue The Mountain View Grand Resort & Spa in Whitefield, New Hampshire. This grand hotel was built in 1865. Can you think of all the work that must have been put in to creating this landmark hotel? Starting out as nothing more then a large home, truly it was a small lodge and over the years transformed into the magnificent building we see today.

The resort is colored in a bright yellow. The sister resort to it’s larger neighbor, the Mount Washington hotel another wedding venue in New Hampshire.  Both spaces are truly grand. With the large lawns and gardens, they can host two weddings at the same time. They also have reception halls for multi-events. I was the second shooter at this wedding. It was a last minute booking and I heard from the man shooter only a few days before this wedding. I do not have getting ready photos of the bride for this reason.

On this day, I met with the groom, Stephen, in one of the great parlor rooms off the lobby, in the main building. They had some great chairs a great table and the best part was the large chess board. As I spent time chatting to the guys, they had help with their boutonnière’s and we took some photos in this great room. I posed them a bit. Asked them to do a selfie. They were truly playing chess for the table shot. They did not have time to finish, but word was that one of them had learned from some real pros or had taken some sort of chess class in school. We had our short shoot then made are way out side to the back garden area.

There is a cool pond, with a small bridge and little river flowing into the pond. The men walked to the front of the crowd of family and friends that were sitting ready for the bride to make her entrance. The bridesmaids made their way down and around the pond to the front side of the garden. The sun was bright and hot and the photos were coming so bright and popping. The ceremony including a solo from a family friend and a wedding sand ceremony. The blending of the Sand is a unique way to symbolize two lives becoming one. The bride and groom shared a kiss. The groom surprised every one with a nice dip. I knew he was going to do this so I was set on the side with a wide lens to make sure I could capture the whole dip. As a photographer if I had shot this from the center of the aisle, like i do with most kisses I would have taken the photo and most likely missed it as the dip is a wide move and the parents in the front row can block the heads of the bride and groom. make sure you know your couples plans.

If you are a couple looking for a photographer, make sure you share your ideas with them. Nothing would be worse then once your photos come back and your kiss is missing. The rest of the night was seamless. We headed out front for some bridal photos and set up for the family photos. The hotel made for a nice backdrop as well the grand view did for the bridal party photos. We returned later in the night for a few twilight photos.

The Crystal Ballroom was a truly grand room. One of the best venue rooms for a wedding I have seen in New Hampshire. The toasts were grand, the food was grand, the dancing was grand. It was truly elegant. At the end of the night, the bride and two of here bridesmaids made their way to the dance floor. They lip-sync/danced to the 90’s hit song “I Want You back” by N Sync. Ending the night with the twilight photos was great. We left the bride and groom to hang with their friends and family when our work was done. I made the trip back over Crawford Notch I was truly grateful to have been a this wedding.

Indian Head Resort Wedding Slide Show| New Hampshire Wedding Venue, Lincoln NH

New Hampshire Wedding Photographers Blog: 211

One of the best parts about being a Wedding Photographer. I love building wedding day slide shows! It takes me back to the energy of each, individual wedding and it is so nice to live it all again. This is my goal when creating a slide show for the couples I work with. It isn’t just about the photos themselves. It is about the feeling, the energy, the uniqueness of each, individual couple and celebration. When you get marred in New Hampshire you have many options for a gorgeous background. This time I traveled to Lincoln, N.H. To Indian Head Resort. I have photographed here before at another wedding. We were able to create some great portraits after the wedding ceremony and then again near sunset we stepped out to the pond for a few more photos. One nice thing about the resort is that the venue is close to the beautiful scenes we used for backdrops. We did not need to jump in a car and drive 10 miles to find the mountains or a lake. They have it all right there. Mary, Justin and I had a great day at there wedding. Like the engagement session we had. It was like 3 friends taking photos. Glad to be there this day. Please enjoy this wedding slide show of some of my favorite story telling images from that day.

What Is Style? | Wedding Photographers Style | Photographic Style Gets Couples To Notice You

What Is Style? | Wedding Photographers Style | Photographic Style Gets Couples To Notice You

What Is Style? | Wedding Photographers Style

One might think that every wedding is the same. In some ways they are. Two people in love are telling their closest friends and family that they love this person like no other. There is a dress and suits, rings, flowers and wedding cake. They share tears of joy. So, if you think all weddings are the same you are half right. The above listed things are what makes weddings the same. The couples taste, style, wants and needs, are what makes each wedding different and unique.

Some weddings are young couples and others are couples that met later in life. There can be a large change in styles from one to the other. This is what can get you hired. Having a style that is up to change. A style that suits your couples. Being a customers service agent is part of being in the photography business. You need to be educated, in not only lighting, gear and poses, but you need to be able to edit in a way that the couples will find to their liking.  Style can make or break a booking. So, be open to change and shoot for your not only your current client but shoot with style create future client bookings.

If you have questions about your wedding, my packages or just want to say hi. Please contact me today.

 

About these photos: Here is a group of wedding images that shot what I would call a different style from one another.

PHOTO OF THE DAY – Family Heirlooms As Wedding Photo Props

In todays post I have used two wedding Photos. I know my Photo of The Day posts are most times just one photo with a bit on how I shot it or what the day was about when I took the photo. I thought that to really make my point I needed these two photos to tell my story.

This wedding was in the City of Berlin , NH. It is a small city more like a large town. A 100 years ago the city of Berlin was a mill town. Over the years the mills have closed down and with it many of the towns income creating jobs have also been washed away with the mills.

I have always loved props in photos. When they are good and they are relevant to the photo of the subject. This is not exception. I was meeting the bride at her moms home before the wedding. I knew this would be a good place to find family history to include in some photos. I was not sure how when I got to the home, but as soon as I saw the spoons I knew it was meant to be.

ABOUT THESE PHOTOS:

So what better way to show off the family connection the history the love this family had for each other then with this great wall display? This display of baby spoons was very detailed. It had small spoons all engraved with the child’s name for all 13 kids, that is right 13. This bride was the youngest of the 13 and was on the way to start her own family. I had first thought I would hang the shoes from this and capture the silver of all the spoons and the shoes together. I think it works very well. It tells a story for all that see. It for sure will create emotion to the family when they see it. So then I thought I would add the rings to the brides spoon in some way. I though I might put the rings into the spoon or on the stem, but nothing looked as nice together as the rings resting on the spoon like in the second photo. I had shot a few photos of the rings then removed the spiders web from the wooden rack. I really like the way it looked with the web. So I edited it and included it in there wedding photos. I edited the first photo with a more vintage look using a bit of a matted look to finish it off. The second photo is a basic black and white with a high clarity to bring out some of the finer details.

FROSTED OVER TOWN

FROSTED OVER TOWN

PHOTO OF THE DAY- FROSTED OVER TOWN

 

We have long winters here in New Hampshire. I joke that we have 5 seasons. Spring, summer, fall, winter and wedding session. Not necessarily in that order. When wedding season does start it goes fast unlike some of the last few winters we have had. Again my camera is almost always with me in the car. I happen to drive around the park in down town North Conway and the scene was just asking to be photographed. I jumped out and took about five photos. This being the one I picked to edit and post. We can see a large part of our old fashion ski town.

Sure we have a Starbucks a 99 restaurant and Walmart. They are down at the other end of town in the area of town that contains most of the change type of stores and outlets. This is the older side of town the part that still holds on to some of the original buildings that were part of the foundation of Mount Washington Valley. It is great to park on the street near here and walk in and out of these store fronts. Each store is unique in its own way. From our famous rock and gem shop “Dondero’s Rock Shop” and our local small town coffee shop “The Met” then a bit further down we have Horsefeathers restaurant and right next door in “Zeb’s County Store”. On a small side note. I had worked at Horesfeathers for 16 years before children and have gone back to work there over time the past few years after taken 8 years old to grow my wooden toys business Willow Toys . Zeb’s is the yellow building pictured here just left of the church and Horesfeathers is the lite blue building two buildings over to the left of Zeb’s. If you ever find your self up this way both locations are a must visit type of place. Finally we can see “Cranmore Mountain” our local in town ski resort.

Thanks for viewing my site. Have you ever been to North Conway? Let me know in the comments below.

LITTLE HO– USE ON FROZEN WATER

LITTLE HO– USE ON FROZEN WATER

PHOTO OF THE DAY – LITTLE HO– USE ON FROZEN WATER

Driving last winter on a gray lite day. No sun many clouds. I had my camera ( I always do)  This day I was going to pick up a load of wood for my wooden toy business.  As I came around the corner I saw it there in the distance. It was a little house a ice house to be more descriptive. If you do not know what a ice house is it is not just a beer. It is a small shed really. It is used for ice fishing in the cold part of the world. You can build them to fit your needs. Some have little wood stove some have holes in the floor to fish through. Some are just a place to store your gear and take a break from the cold.  This one looks nice it has vinyl siding on it and a nice weather proof door and a few windows to let the light in.
I pulled into a small turn around spot on the side of the road and climbed a snow bank to get a better view. I was almost to the top and noticed I could shoot into this small area of tress that had lost its leaves in the fall. I thought this would add to the mood of the photo and I snapped away. After just a few shots I was happy and back on my trip to the lumber yard. You never know when that next shot will line up or what you might do to make the next photo. I always have my camera with me. I know we all have cell phones for the most part but I don’t think this would look so cool if I took it on my iPhone4s

PHOTO OF THE DAY – FAR AND AWAY

Amazing landscape scene in this seasonal photo taken in New Hampshire last fall. The color is amazing this time year. From my point of view it was hard to even pick a spot to point the camera they were all amazing and so full of foliage. I took many others and even a pano photo from this place. It will be some time before I make it back in to my archives and edit the rest. The one thing about always shooting landscapes is you always have so many images to pick and chose from. Finding that one form the shoot that is just a bit better then the rest. If you have a moment head over to my on-line gallery and view some of my other works. The images in my gallery are all available for purchase as well. Thanks again for viewing sharing and liking my work. Comments are also always so nice to receive.

PHOTO OF THE DAY- T-REX NEST

On our trip to Puerto Rico I was able to take many new existing photo of the ocean the jungle and some crazy bugs and animals. Here in this photo at the edge of the jungle might be one of my favorite from the trip. It truly was an amazing sky. It was just after eating dinner I was cleaning up in the kitchen and looked out the window to see the sunset and the purple in it was almost fake looking. I just drop everything then grabbed my gear and ran up the hill to this spot on the conner. There was houses behind me but none on this spot. I stood trying to catch my breath and be fast about setting up my tripod and camera. Once I saw the back of the LCD screen I knew I had something. I moved and composed a few more shots and baam the sun had set.

Welcome, Phoebe Isis! Newborn Sparkle Session ~ Joe Martin New Hampshire Photographer

Welcome, Phoebe Isis! Newborn Sparkle Session ~ Joe Martin New Hampshire Photographer

 

This week we had the pleasure of meeting this little lady, Phoebe Isis. She was a beautiful soul and loved being in her Mama’s arms. We are proponents for attachment parenting and during our Newborn sessions we encourage mothers to nurse and hold their babies as much as possible.  We have learned a lot in the short time that we have introduced our Newborn Photography Sparkle Session. We have learned the importance of having sessions with babies under two weeks old. Although Phoebe was a bit older, we enjoyed our time with her very much!  Her parents took my wife, Dayna’s Natural Childbirth class back when they were pregnant with their first baby. Phoebe is their third child so we had a very special connection with this family, having seen their family begin. It was an honor to connect with them again, and give them the gift of beautiful photographs of their first daughter.
If your pregnant or know someone that is, let them know that they can contact us today! Whether is it childbirth classes, breastfeeding help, Doula service or newborn photography, we would love to connect and support local families on their journey to parenthood and beyond.

                                                                                                                           Please fill out my form to Apply

This spring will kick off the first annual North Conway, New Hampshire, Senior Model Ambassador Program by Joe Martin Photography

This program will run for one month and is open to any Junior (11th grade) student that attend Kennett High School or Fryeburg Academy. To work for print credits toward their class photos that they can use in the yearbook picture.

How the program works: We will hold a free model test shoot after which I will select 3 exclusive  models from each school. These models will be given a free senior portrait photography session, a $99 value. This will include one free 8×10 print of their choosing, a $40.00 value. They will also be given very select marketing products including water-marked wallet sized photos from their senior portrait session. They will then use these items to show their friends the great senior portraits that they had taken at Joe Martin Photography. That way, when a referral books with me, you will receive the proper credit towards your print order. On the marketing handouts will be a custom number linked to each of our ambassadors so we can track their progress and give the proper credit towards their prints.  I will share tips on how to make the handouts work for you in the best way.

I have a makeup artist booked for the day of the model test. She will go over your hair and make up and make sure you’re looking your best. What is the model test? Once you have filled out this online form and submitted a photo, you may be invited to come into the studio and have a few head shots taken. Why I am doing it this way? Plain and simple, I want my senior ambassadors to be comfortable in front of the camera and get to know myself and my studio a bit. I would never  want people that have never worked with me to reference others to use my photography services. This short photo session will be so we can get to know each other and more importantly, you can find out more about me and see if this is something you are truly excited to be involved in.

What happens next? In the days after the shoot I will do some photos edits and have every one come back to view their head shots and select one head shot from the test shoot to receive as a free 8×10 print, a 32.00 value. At the portrait viewing I will have one last chance to meet with you and your parents. This will help me make my final pick for my three senior portrait ambassadors.

When your prints are in I will contact you.  If you ordered additional prints in addition to your free head shot print you will be contacted to come pick up your order.

Then we will set up you up with your senior portrait session and follow the same order of events with print viewing and ordering. As your referrals come in we will credit your account and subtract that amount from your total order.   I feel you should be rewarded for hard work and the model that references the most senior portrait bookings will also receive a extra gift form Joe Martin Photography. That gift will be determined at end of  the program and will be based on the total number of senior portrait photography sessions booked.

                                                                                              Please fill out my form to Apply

Your History; Your Story: The Importance of Your Wedding Photography Album

Your History; Your Story: The Importance of Your Wedding Photography Album

 

Wedding photography at a New Hampshire

“I do” is heard at this wedding.

After this long cold winter, we long for a hot, sunny day. Let’s hope we get a lot of them, and soon! This might have been the longest coldest winter in the U.S. in a long time.  As this wedding season approaches we are reminded how short that season truly is here in New Hampshire and all of New England.  As a photographer, we look forward to it and wish that wedding season could last forever!

Let me offer  what may be a new point of view on the subject of wedding photography. Long after the guest has returned home and the reception hall has been cleaned and set for the next event, and long after you have returned from your honeymoon and all the cake is gone what will be left? What will be left is the memories of your special day! With high quality wedding photography your memories will come flooding back in a moment when you return to look through your photos. If you every want to return to the feeling of the moment you only need to grab a hot beverage and a comfy chair with your spouse and smile together as you revisit your special day. Your wedding album will provide you with a birds eye view of your wedding day.  Showing the moments that you may have missed, relatives that may have passed since that day, it may bring you even closer to one that you only wished to be closer with.

Myself, I have two weddings on the books so far and a few more that are lining up in short order.  I feel that between weddings and family photo sessions this should be my busiest year yet. I am looking forward to getting to know all of my new friends that I will meet first as clients. There really is nothing like spending the day with a couple on the happiest day of their lives up until this point. If you think about it, what is better then getting married? The only thing that can top that is having children. For a wedding photographer to be there on one of this milestone days is unforgettable.  The couple is happy, the families are happy many of them meeting for the first or maybe just the second time. People come from far and wide to enjoy the day with their family. Many have not seen each other in years. It is our job as photographers to make this a top priority. In my mind it is just as important to make the memories last more then this one Saturday after noon. That is were a printed album comes in.  How many photos do you have of your grandparents? If you do you have any at all I am betting it is just one or two and they are small images that have not been well cared for. Have you ever seen a child going over photos from their own childhood? Many smiles and laughs and many questions and shared stories come from this experience. When you receive your wedding album full of page after page of rich beautiful photography it is sure to spark many conversations in the years to come.

Your wedding is a milestone in your history. It is an important chapter in your story that only a photo album could tell.
Contact me today so we can start the process of preserving and honoring your memories in the way that you deserve.  My prices are set to be affordable yet competitive in a market with a wide range of professional and amateur  photographers. Please see my wedding information page for more about what I can offer you.

Sharing testimonials is an important aspect of any business. Here is what my clients are saying about our experience together after a portrait shoot or wedding. It is always great to hear from them after the shoot to know that they had fun and enjoyed the photos. Here are just a few of the most recent we have received. From a happy family portrait session.

Hannah Quinn: 5 STAR REVIEW via Facebook
 “Joe is simply the best!!! He was super creative with beautiful artistic shots of our wedding day and he was even able to capture the little ones in our wedding party!! (There is a lot to be said for someone who can capture young ones smiling and all!) I would HIGHLY recommend Joe to anyone, and I have to say that anyone that looks at our wedding pictures are amazed by the quality of his work :)”

Baby girl so cute

Heidi Englert 5 STAR REVIEW via Facebook
“Joe and Dayna did a newborn shoot for my little girl. They came into my home and set up right in our bedroom. They were very professional and I trusted them with our daughter. The pictures came out great and they did such a nice job with handling Avery with care, I would have never guessed it was their first newborn shoot! I’d definitely call Joe for my next family photo shoot!”



Sarah Robinson Quinby: 5 STAR REVIEW via Facebook
“Joe is incredible to work with. Creative shots taken in a relaxing but fun way. No ‘typical’ and unnatural poses. During the session he worked with 4 kids ages 3-12, connecting with all of them at their level using unique props and the beauty of the surrounding nature to capture their true personalities.”

Senior Portrait From new Hampshire Photographer Joe Martin



From a proud mother: The DiSilva Family
“My Oldest Daughter became a senior this year. Senior year how exciting with Caps and gowns ,Prom and Senior portraits.Who do you choose to take these memorable pictures and how do you decide with so many great photographers in the area? I found a lot on Facebook. I was able to see each style every photographer had and narrow it down to two I was really interested in. I chose Joe Martin. He had a lot of great ideas and listened to what we wanted. We had never done anything like this before as we were a little apprehensive on how it would all turn out. Joe is a true pro-professional brought props from home which made the photos have that extra touch. We went to three different spots in the Tamworth Ossipee area which made each photo extremely different from the last.His eye for perfection is amazing. A week later we had the disk in hand of all the gorgeous pictures he had taken. We are still trying to decide which pictures are the best for they all are extremely beautiful.If your looking for Family Portraits, Senior Photos, or just Regular school pictures of your children , instead of spending your money at Walmart, Sears, or JcPenny try a true professional Joe Martin and create Memories that will last a lifetime with each photo he takes. I’m in love with his work and he will be taking our pictures again as we have another senior next year! Thank you Joe Martin. I’m glad I found you ,I just only wish I learned of your amazing work years ago! Joemartinphotograhy.com is the way to go!

What is a Photographer to Blog about?

What is a Photographer to Blog about?

Snowing River in New Hampshire

Sure, I could blog about camera gear or my last family photo shoot. I want to offer more then pretty pictures or one family’s story. Plus there will always be that type of blog here and there. I want to be a bit different. I don’t want to give you what ever other photographer gives you. I want to share some of my experiences sure, but I am so much more than that.

Like most people I sit and think about a new blog post. After some time I would find a photo, write a one line back story about the photo and post. Well, that is not a post. In fact, it is almost nothing. It will not get me a better Google ranking. Google looks for new information within a page that contains between 300-2000 words or more. If you’re like me, once you get to a page and see that it has an overwhelming amount of text you do one of two things: You either close the page or you might scroll and scan the page for small lines of text that grab your eye, taking in just a small amount of the carefully crafted post. We all like to share our story to give tips, updates, a news story or better yet, show you what we had for lunch that day.

I want to keep you supplied with a post that is short and sweet, to the point and informational at the same time.  With every post I get a little clearer on what I would like to share and why I want to share it. At the same time, I am trying to become a better writer and better at typing. It is hard to type fast when you spend most of your time backspacing to remove that red line under your words. As I became more comfortable, more blog posts start forming in my head I have to start to write ideas in my phones’ notes and draft emails to myself.

Now what I am blogging about these days? Well, now that is it off season for outdoor photography in my area. At this point this it my only studio space. I am blogging about photography, about my business, and blog about a few product reviews on items I have bought this winter, just to fill in the slow shooting times with some content so Google does not forget about me.

As we close in on portrait and wedding session I will blog about shoots and post photos from them. At the same time, keeping true to my passion to share some knowledge along the way that I have picked up from others or as I try new things by pushing myself in new directions.

One thing to think about and understand is that we live in a ever-changing word. A world that did not have the iPad prior to 2010. A world where most everyone has a Smart Phone, even young children. We live in a world that camera phones are better then the high price digital cameras we lugged around a few years back. What’s next? We barely know what is happening now! One thing that we must adapt to is the fast-changing times and new ways to content with our clients to bring in new business. One thing that is in the now and we have to use to our advantage is the actual Smart Phones. We have to have our sites mobile ready to be view and navigate with ease. What I mean is with the iPhones, Siri and Google’s “search by voice” feature. We need to be ready and able to come up in a search by location and the field of work that we specialize in. Are you ready? Do you even know how to adjust your business to handle this in the best way? I may blog about it in the future once I have a better understanding on how we as photographers can benefit from this new way of internet search algorithms.

In closing, remember that everyone needs to add content to their site. You must blog to be found. Once you have been found in your area of expertise, you do have a bit of an upper hand and do not have to blog as much, but once you stop, the Google Gods will take notice. The guy/gal down the road, that has been working hard to take your place just might take it.
