Summer fun for The Rensselaer Society of Engineers

7 08 2010
I am proud to be a member of, a past trustee of and the past advisor to the Rensselaer Society of Engineers, a fraternity at RPI. Each summer a reunion is held, offering a chance for the membership to gather and reconnect. This summer we celebrated the renovations completed in our living room and the dedication of a small museum of artifacts. We also renewed our commitments to scholarship having awarded over $10,000 this past year.

Photos from the event are available at this link to my website: RSE Summer Reunion 2010.

Would you like to sit back and enjoy your next event? We can be booked to cover celebrations like this and can deliver a disk of high quality images for y0ur website or other usage. Give us a call at 518-225-6306 to make the arrangements!

More congrats to the Order of Omega at Rensselaer!

At RPI, the Order of Omega chapter has won the 2009 Outstanding Chapter award! More information and the photo I took can be found on the RPI website. Order of Omega is the honorary society for our fraternity and sorority members and I have the pleasure of being one of their advisors.

Congratulations also to their newest members, just inducted this month.

Congratulations to the New Order of Omega Members!

One of the many things that I’m involved with that gives me great pleasure is the Order of Omega at Rensselaer! This is a long standing honorary society specifically for members of the fraternity and sorority system. Along with academic success they acknowledge participation and leadership within the Greek system.

This past week they inducted 18 new members, joining the hundreds of students inducted since the 60’s when the organization first came to campus.

I have posted their photos below. Each is a thumbnail of the full size image. It is my hope that the Greeks will use these for their publicity – in their newsletters and websites, to show off some of their members to their alumni! And of course, please let your parents know!

Enjoy & congratulations!

The RSE Formal

18 10 2009

I attended the Rensselaer Society of Engineers formal party last night to capture portraits of the members and their dates. Everyone was sharply dressed for the occasion and looked fantastic. The event was held at The Meadows which is operated by Birch Hill.

I have posted the photos here for all to see and enjoy. You can order your favorites through the on-line store.

Congrats to the Greeks!

Fraternities and Sororities at Rensselaer were honored over the weekend at the annual Greek Awards ceremony.

Grace & John’s Wedding Proofs… are ready!

25 10 2006

Wow, I finally finished! There are hundreds of fantastic photos from the event – starting with the wedding itself on through the formals afterwards – both at the church, at John’s parent’s house and at Congress Park in Saratoga. Then the party moved on – to the magnificent Canfield Casino!

Please remember that these are the proofs. When you place an order for a specific photo, that image is then color and lighting corrected as necessary. Also, I retouch / fix any “red eye” from the flash. If there is any other specific retouching that you require, please let me know before ordering so that I can be sure to understand what you are looking for.

In addition to the regular prints and enlargements I also create custom made collages, such as I use in my Wedding Books. These can also be commissioned as a single fine art print. Please contact me directly so that we can discuss what you are looking for.

Enjoy the photos! Please get your orders in as soon as possible so that I can get them back to you before the various holidays (when I get even busier!).

Please let me know if you or any of your family or friends are getting married and need a photographer. I am booking into late next year and beyond already – so its definitely time to set up a free wedding consultation meeting!

Grace and John – GOT married today!

13 10 2006

A fantastic day! A bit chilly – but contrary to some predictions, no rain was to be had!

The ceremony was very nice. The church apparently dates back to the early 19th century and was beautiful in its simplicity. After the ceremony, we were able to get some great formals made both inside the church and at John’s parent’s house.

Then it was off to Saratoga to the Canfield Casino! Magnificent! A great time was had by all! The food was wonderful and the live band was excellent! As I was working (well, it IS work even though I love it!) I did not get to sample some of the interesting beverages that were on hand… hmmm!

There were many fellow members of RSE on hand to celebrate – both current student members as well as fellow alumni!

I’ll be sorting through the images this week. Here’s one to set the stage. Grace was absolutely beautiful – though I think perhaps a little nervous at first!

Goodness Grace!

Please be sure to bookmark this page so that you can some back and see the proofs! I managed to shoot some several hundred photos today!

Once the proofs are posted, you may order your copies right here on-line. They’ll only be on-line for a limited time, so be sure to get your orders in right away, once they are posted!

And for anyone getting married, please remember that I do book between 12 & 24 months in advance for weddings – so now really IS the time for us to talk! Give me a call or an email and I’ll get in touch.

Grace and John – get married today!

13 10 2006

Its off to West Galway for the wedding of Grace and John! Then formal portraits, then off to Saratoga for the reception!

Be sure to return late next week when I hope to have their proofs ready! If you want to get an email when they are posted, please leave a comment for this post with your name and email address.

Greek Career Nite at RPI

9 10 2006

Several fraternity and sorority members formed a panel discussion group at RPI to help students understand that value of “going Greek” (joining a fraternity or sorority). The discussion, led by Joe Templin of the “Castle” fraternity, helped the panel members express the many strengths and skills they developed while at RPI and while being members of their various organizations.

Photos from this event are available here.

Congratulations to the Order of Omega Inductees

11 04 2006

Twenty five students were inducted into the Order of Omega today at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. These students are all members of the Greek system at RPI – they all belong to one of the fraternities or sororities. These students have displayed the highest standards for participation and support of both the school and the fraternities and sororities.

Order of Omega Inductees

Congratulations are especially in order to their newest set of officers: Charlotte Williamson – President, Lisa Klaas – Vice President, Scott Friedman – Secretary, and Tom Slaney – Treasurer.
