More about me:

I spent six years six years umpiring professional baseball before becoming a photographer.

I believe in clean post-production, and that your wedding images are too important to fall victim to the hot Photoshop trends of the moment.

I also believes that your photos should show who you are, not just what you look like.

I also think that if you ever find yourself in Birmingham, you need to eat barbeque at Jim 'n Nicks.

When it comes to your photos, I always feel that more is not necessarily always better. Better is better.

By the way, I think everything tastes better with hot sauce. Except for cereal, that would be weird.

If you look closely during your first dance, there's a good chance I’m singing along to myself. Which would be quite embarrassing if the power ever went out. Read less

My husband and I knew the aesthetic we were looking for from our photos when we began our search for photographers.
We were looking for someone who’s pictures told a story and captured both the emotion of a moment and personality of the subject. Someone who excelled in documenting the in between moments and candid shots as opposed to point and shoot “staged photos”.

After much research on wedding wire, wedding expos and Pinterest we were lucky to find Doug. A former professional baseball umpire, Doug changed careers (to the benefit of brides and grooms). He is an easy going guy who encourages you to be yourself, letting his talent create the opportunity for the perfect shot.

He is an incredible communicator with the fastest turn around projects I have ever seen. Within one week of our engagement photos and two weeks of our wedding the proofs were in our hand. He went above and beyond to create to versions of each photo – one sized for social media and one for large prints. Every photo from our wedding captured the essence of our family and friends – so much so that every candid shot we shared with people immediately became their Facebook profile or cover photo.

Doug is highly regarded in the Boston photography community for his professionalism, technical skill and willingness to teach and support his peers. He is a man with so much integrity and love for the profession. My father was mentoring a business school student building a photography business and Doug spent a significant amount of time on a conference call sharing his expertise to better prepare this student for their project.

That is the kind of guy Doug is. He goes above and beyond – giving 110% exceeding his high standard of excellence every time.
I would recommend him in a heartbeat and wish that cloning were possible so more brides and grooms would get the opportunity to work with him!

Doug was the perfect photographer for our wedding. He listened to what we wanted and the pictures came out beautiful. Going through all of the pictures, he fully captured the love, fun and celebration of the night. All of my friends said that they didn't even notice he was there all night snapping pictures! That is exactly what you want in a photographer. I would definitely recommend him to any of my friends getting married.

Doug was amazing! He was extremely responsive via email before and after the wedding and was very easy to work with on the day of. He seemed to know exactly what he was doing and wasn't afraid to direct people to get the best shots. During the reception, I didn't even notice that he was there, but he captured the energy of the night and the most unbelievable expressions on everyone's faces. He got the digital photos to us incredibly quickly, and I haven't been able to stop looking through them since. We are thrilled with Doug's work and highly recommend him for all special events.

Doug's photos are absolutely gorgeous and he returned them to us within 5 days of the wedding! We had about 80 guests and he shot stunning portraits of almost every person there. He was right in the middle of the action throughout the event and yet we hardly noticed him. The genuine, beaming smiles he captured all day are evidence of his unobtrusive, laid-back demeanor which put everyone at ease. The lighting and the composition of his photos make the images feel as warm and intimate as the day felt for us. He was really organized and efficient with our formal wedding-party/family photos and had several really creative ideas for photo shoots with the two of us throughout the evening.

Looking for a wedding photographer? Well stop spending hours pouring through everyone's sample photos and just hire Doug. Seriously, you won't regret it!

I had a hard time picking a wedding photographer. A lot of photographers have amazing websites but then when you see their full albums you're just not as in to them. And then there is the whole thing about price and budget. My fiance was convinced people could just take pictures on their cell phones and we didn't need to hire a photographer = CRAZY. For some reason Doug did not come up in my original photographer searches, he was recommended to me by another photographer who was already booked up for my date.

Doug did an absolutely fantastic job with our wedding photos! He was a pleasure to work with right from our very first interaction all the way back in October, 2014. He is easy going but very attentive (I don't think more than 30 minutes ever passed by before he responded to an email). My husband and I aren't really "photo people" in that we don't really enjoy having our photo taken and don't know much about photography either. We are also very delinquent wedding planners. Doug probably realized all of these things very early on however still made the whole process go very smoothly without ever making us feel rushed. It was even somewhat fun. And of course, the photos really just speak for themselves. They are beautiful but also natural looking and really captured everyone's emotions perfectly. We have gotten so many compliments about all of them and 4 of my friends have already used his headshots as their Facebook profile photos! Thank you so much Doug!

I can't stop saying incredible things about Doug. Every interaction I had with him before the wedding was professional and easy. He answered a ton of questions and graciously tolerated my nit picky lawyer fiancé. Doug's approach to wedding photography was exactly what we were looking for. He is a great story teller who captures what happened on the day, rather than staging what wedding photos should look like. On the day of his calming presence was the perfect compliment to the sometimes frantic energy. Even though I'd only met Doug once before the wedding, he was completely at ease with me, my family and friends and never felt like an outsider. He arrived early to check out the property for photos, traipsed around in muck to find good photo spots, and reassured me with his very precise weather radar that the rain was going to cooperate. Doug did the perfect job of being there for all the moments I'd want captured- I remember seeing him out of the corner of my eye- but he was never intrusive.

I simply couldn't imagine having a better photographer... and I haven't even seen the photos yet (because I asked him to wait until after we got back from our honeymoon). He showed me a couple shots on his camera throughout the day- and I have every confidence in the world that they are amazing!

My husband and I are so glad that we chose Doug as our wedding day photographer. He has a great eye, and took many creative and stunning photographs of our wedding. I really liked the candid photographs that he captured on our wedding day of us and our guests. He was very responsive to e-mails or phone calls, which I really appreciated. He also had an excellent turnaround time of his work. My husband and I returned from our honeymoon 8 days after our wedding and Doug sent us the portfolio 9 days after the wedding!

Doug is a great photographer. He captured our event beautifully. He made sure that every moment of our day was covered, both the guys and girls getting ready, family and friends gathering for the ceremony and of course the ceremony and reception. The final photos were delivered within 2 weeks. He also included an engagement shoot in his wedding package. We could no be happier. He made sure that we got all the family shots that we wanted but also created some beautiful portraits and candid shots that blew us away. From start to finish we were able to communicate with him and he responded right away. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

I cannot say enough great things about Doug, but I will do my best!
From the first conversation with Doug, it was clear that he was the perfect choice. He is the quintessential professional yet somehow friendly and funny at the same time. We immediately felt like we had known him for years and trusted him 1,000% to deliver an amazing product. Whether we communicated by an old-fashioned telephone call, email, or facebook, Doug's response was extremely quick.
On the event day, Doug made sure to fit in photos of the bridal party getting ready, the ring-bearer/retired Army pup getting his tux on, and then staged family photos with both the bride and groom's families. During the ceremony, he managed to move from one floor to another in a difficult to maneuver venue (Fenway Park). During the reception, we had no clue where Doug was, but if we wanted to talk to him we easily discovered his where-a-bouts, usually only a few feet away.
Not only is his portfolio beautiful, but our finished product is incredible. We took our time clicking through each photo and found ourselves saying "I love this one!" over and over again.
In 50 years, our wedding photos will still be beautiful, tasteful, and just remarkable. The value in Doug's work is his ability to capture the "feeling" of each moment with truly timeless photos that are also contemporary and creative. We cannot thank him enough for giving us the perfect photographic story of our wedding day.

Not only is his portfolio beautiful, but our finished product is incredible. We took our time clicking through each photo and found ourselves saying "I love this one!" over and over again.
In 50 years, our wedding photos will still be beautiful, tasteful, and just remarkable. The value in Doug's work is his ability to capture the "feeling" of each moment with truly timeless photos that are also contemporary and creative. We cannot thank him enough for giving us the perfect photographic story of our wedding day. Read less
