Independence Day 2015

EAST CANTON, OHIO — For the 2015 Independence Day holiday, we went to my cousin’s home in East Canton. For the last several years he’s put on a pretty fun display for his family and friends to enjoy.

The Velcats

KENT, OHIO — While at the Stone Tavern waiting to photograph Bosephus, I took some pictures of the bands that went before them. I believe this band is called The Velcats.

Johnny and the Apple Stompers

FALL RIVER, MASSACHUSETTS — Of all the ceremonies that I’ve photographed over the years, I can’t think of a couple that I loved more than Tara and Heather. They were a beautiful couple. Tara was handsomely dressed and her bride was beautiful in her gorgeous wedding dress.
