Hamtak Family Portraits – Long Island Photographer

Last weekend I hooked up with the Hamtak family for a portrait session. They were a fun group and very easy to work with. I had a ball and really enjoyed the time I got to spend with them. Rainy weather forced us indoors, but we were able to squeeze in a few individual portraits outside. Here is a composite featuring some of the images from that session.

Kings Point 2009 Change of Command – Long Island Photographer

The rain held up just enough to allow the Kings Point Class of 2009 Midshipmen Officers to turn leadership of the Regiment over to the Class of 2010. The ceremony took place in the Oval outside of Wiley Hall. The gloomy overhead sky and impending rain did nothing to contain the enthusiasm of the Regiment or that of the onlookers to this traditional rite of passage. At the conclusion of the ceremony, the Class of 2009 made their customary dash to the outdoor swimming pool, where they dove in and splashed around in celebration.

Kings Point 2009 Graduation Cruise – Long Island Wedding Photographer

This past Friday, we had the opportunity to shoot the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy Class of 2009 Graduation Cruise in NYC. Although we’ve had a ton of rain dumped on us lately, Mother Nature was nice enough to take a break and give us some really nice weather for our evening on the water.

The USMMA is located in Kings Point, New York and is a maritime college, so it only makes sense that the graduating class would take one last cruise together before heading off into the real world.

The cruise was held aboard the Cornucopia Majesty, which happens to be the largest capacity yacht on the East Coast. She departed from Chelsea Piers in Manhattan at 7pm, just in time for us to catch a beautiful sunset. The New York City skyline made a great backdrop to a wonderful evening. The water was calm, the ship was steady, the people were festive, and the dance floor was rocking! These Kings Pointers really know how to throw a party!

And no party would be complete without my trusty (and equally beautiful) assistant.
