Big News!

I am very excited to share some new things happening in the Garone world!  This pandemic has given me time to pause, reflect, to think about the future and the role I can play on a larger level. That, coupled with the state of society now, has sparked something in me to want to be part of change. So, I am doing something about it!  I have been accepted for my Masters in Public Health concentrating in Global Health at Southern New Hampshire University and I couldn’t be more excited!   I have always been drawn to the work of social documentary photographers like Lewis Hine, Jacob Riis and Dorothea Lang.   Through photography they were able to raise awareness and effect change in our society.   You could say this new chapter is rooted in an aspiration to incorporate photography with public health and, in doing so, be a part of the change that so desperately needs to happen in our world.  My senior essay in college … 20 years ago 😖 … was called “Photojournalism and Social Reform.”  The importance of photography as a tool for awareness and change has always been a deep belief and passion of mine and I feel a calling that I need to follow. 
A very VERY important takeaway for you in all of this is that Garone Photography isn’t going anywhere! We are still fully open and functioning business as usual …well business as Covid-19 usual.  I am viewing this next step as a way to enhance my passion for photography and to find ways to connect it to a greater cause. Taking real, authentic photos is something that has always driven me in my business and my hope is to learn, on a greater scale, how I can use my photos to help change the world. That might sound like a lofty goal, but I know I can play a part. The ultimate goal, people who see my photos will be moved to the point where they too want to be part of the change. 
 
Thank you for going on this journey with me and I can’t wait to share updates and learnings from my classes with you all!  (and of course, I will still be sharing photos of my beautiful clients😊)

Lauren + Chris | Whitney’s Inn at Jackson Wedding | NH White Mountain Wedding Photography

We could not have asked for a better way to close out wedding season 2019 than by working with Chris and Lauren.  I first met Chris many years ago when I photographed his brother’s wedding.  Then a few years later his sister’s.  (And she happened to marry someone I went to middle school with). It was perfect to finish up the year by photographing the last of the 3 siblings weddings.  Getting to work with the same families through the years is one of my favorite parts of the job and Chris and Lauren’s wedding was no exception.    They were married at Whitney’s Inn in Jackson NH.  Mother Nature had her own plans and we had some rain and fog, but we managed to get down to the Jackson Covered Bridge for a few photos under cover as well as take advantage of the small breaks in rain we had throughout the day.  A huge thank you to the bridesmaids who carefully worked their way around some muddy areas to get some photos in front of the barn!  And an extra huge thank you to Chris’s son, Tyler, for being so great to work with and giving us the best Old Town Road show we saw all season!
Many years of love and happiness to the new Mr and Mrs 🙂

Laura + Conor | Hamilton Hall Wedding, Salem, Ma | Boston Wedding Photographer

This couple! This wedding! This venue! Everything was on-point for Laura and Conor’s wedding in Salem, Ma. The day started at Immaculate Conception Church with a beautiful ceremony followed by a reception at Hamilton Hall. This was our first time at Hamilton Hall, and I fell in LOVE! I just adore the character of historic neighborhoods and could have spent hours walking the streets taking photos … but their guests wanted to see them too, so we stayed close by ?. The character of the building went perfectly with the neighborhood with it’s high ceilings and balcony overlooking the dance floor … and the mirror they have, just wow! Take a look for yourself!

Thank you to the other vendors who played a part in making sure their day was so perfect!

Venue:  Hamilton Hall
DJ:Dan Sky , Sky Music 
Bakery: Uldison , Cassis Bakery
Florist: Amy Parker , Parker Florist
