Anina & Tom - their wedding story

Anina and Tom are a couple who hired me through Craig's List - the only sort of advertising I do for my wedding services. I was a little gun-shy at first because you really never know who you're going to be dealing with when you are meeting strangers (90% of my photography business is referral business).

Needless to say, I was pleasantly surprised by Anina and Tom. They were a fantastic couple to work with. Their wedding was great. I reported to the bride's family's home in South Deerfield, MA. The ceremony was held on the campus of UMass Amherst, Johnson Chapel. The wedding had an old New England/Italian feel to it - canoli's an all! (grandmother made some killer canoli's. I managed to sneak a couple home for the wife!)

Here are some of my favorites from the day:

Johnson Chapel is on the Amherst College campus. I was married there 7 years ago to the day ;-)

Big Guy,

You did an outstanding job! You got great shots without being obtrusive. And we forgive you for stealing the cannolis!

Anina and I both feel lucky that we chose you to shoot our engagement session & wedding. You were more than professional in every interaction and, WOW!!!, the pictures are amazing.

To anyone considering Don's photographic services: Do it! He starts by listening and getting to know you. He is open to suggesions and answers all your questions. He planned out our wedding pictures ahead of time, so we could take the pictures quickly and get back to enjoying our wedding. Don also has a knack for visualizing pictures and came up with some very creative ideas that worked perfectly for us.

We can't say enough. Great job Don!
