There’s a lot of really crazy things I’ve done for my clients. I’ve risked my life, limb, and camera, climbing to the top of Loon Mountain on a rainy day to get wedding photos for a bride and groom. I’ve shoved a baby in a ski boot to photograph for his ski obsessed father. I’ve ran in streets in front of moving traffic more times than I’m pretty sure my family would be comfortable with for the sake of the shot. But THIS? Taking pictures at the Home of the PATRIOTS is by far the craziest. As a Bills fan, paying homage to the (blah) Patriots, is a 1000% no no. And having the five Super Bowl trophies those crooks have won in my lens was just plain painful. Luckily for me, I was able to channel my childhood when the Bills actually went to the Super Bowl (even if they lost every. single. time.) and pretend that I was in an alternate universe at New Era Stadium where those glorious trophies belonged to the good guys, the Bills.
(Please don’t hate me for crushing on the Pats. It’s really easy to be bitter when you lose as much as us.)
The only people I’d ever go to Gillett for is my clients. Especially when they’ve got a small obsession with the #2 quarterback of all time (Jim Kelly for liiiiiife), Tom Brady. Tim knew that if he was going to get engagement photos done they were going to be at his favorite place in the world, and as his wedding photographer, I was 10000000% going to get him the shots he wanted. Even if it killed me. Luckily for Andrea and me, there also happened to be a really beautiful cranberry bog out back of the stadium so we were able to get a little bit of nature, too. This couple is the tops. I am thrilled that I get to be with them on their big day, even if they looked up the Bills losing score to rub in my face before we started shooting. For real, there’s something so special about Andrea and Tim. They just bring so much joy to each other and I’m certain their March wedding is going to be the tops.
