Taking a page from the infamous Boston InterContinental Hotel “White Wedding” that Brian Phillips Photography shot late season 2010, with event planner and designer Michele Mottola… Our couple chose to go a similar, but at the same time, completely opposite look for their extraordinary Boston wedding. Michele meticulously helped transform the Rose Kennedy Ballroom into a dimly lit, dark and truly romantic affair. A recarpeted ballroom and custom dance floor were only side notes compared to the Uplit floor to ceiling strands of crystals that hung spectacularly behind shear black draping around the room, specifically behind the band and the bar. And also of note, the unbelievable and intricate hand made paper flower wall (designed by Lux Event Rentals / Inspired by a Chanel Couture show) that graced the brides entrance into her ceremony. Over 18 vendors were involved with this wedding, and I must not forget to mention specifically Marc Hall for his extravagant floral design and Suzanne B. Lowell and her “spot on” lighting work. Really Amazing. I know, such an overused word, but truly.. it says it all.
Also a big hand goes out to my wife Maria / photo-assistant extraordinaire for this wedding as she is 9 months pregnant and still insisted on helping out! I have taken a lot of heat for this, but really, it was all her. But Michele did save the day with a golf cart on call for her disposal, or so I am told lol. And to my second lead shooter Roxanna Perdue, who I am so excited just recently moved back to Boston. Roxanna’s wonderful imagery (many scattered throughout below), really lent a hand to rounding out this event with exacting coverage by the Brian Phillips Photography Team!!! Shameless plug, but of course! ENJOY!!!

Brian Phillips is a Boston based Wedding and Event Photographer serving all of New England including Cape Cod, Newport, R.I., and Destination Weddings.
We are super excited to announce that we have two Internship opportunities available at Brian Phillips Photography for 2012!! We are looking for a Photography Intern for this summer / fall wedding season, and a Marketing Intern for this summer. If you are upbeat, personable, and have a wild desire to live, breathe, eat photography, then this IS for you. My knowledge passed along to me from some truly world class photographers won’t be held back, and the same goes for my business experience gained over the past 10 years. You will be here to work, but I promise a fun and most rewarding experience for both!!
Our ideal candidates will be able to work out of our Waltham Studio at least 2 half days a week (hours and times are flexible), and of course, be able to provide their own Swingline :-). Photography Intern will also need to have some weekend and evening flexibilty to allow for wedding and event schedules.
Believe it or not a basic studio shoot like this takes only 30 minutes. Of course a little cooperation goes a long way. But in the case of Mateo’s shoot, not cooperating all that much actually allows for a lot of unique shots. Contact me for more information if you are interested in scheduling one for your child or to give as a gift. Or Click Here
