From Bar Harbor in Maine to the Florida Keys, all over Boston and to every New England state I've been lucky enough to be witness to and photograph so many amazing weddings. Hi, I'm Randall Garnick (but go by Randy, Randall or Garnick), and I've been a Boston and New England wedding photographer for the last eight wedding seasons. In wedding terms for me that's 190 New England wedding couples that have trusted me to document their wedding in my signature authentic, creative and romantic photography style. I'm best know for my relaxed personality, unobtrusive manner, and ability to craft light and create a moody, dramatic photo pretty much anywhere. My wedding photography is very light-driven, meaning I know how to 'see the light' and use my decades of photography experience to help my couples get the best possible photos from their wedding day. And that's what it's all about for me, serving my clients, providing an exemplary experience and creating gorgeous wedding photos to tell the story of each and every wedding day. I work hard and love what I do. Please take a look around the site, peruse all the Boston and area wedding photos, engagement photos from all over New England and contact me so I can learn more about the event you're planning.

If you haven't had a chance to look through my blog or portfolio yet, well you should. But if you have you'll see a fair amount of destination wedding photos in there. Living and photographing in the central coast of California, Monterey and San Francisco for three years gave me the travel bug. I'm so grateful to all my destination wedding clients that have trusted me to travel with them to amazing wedding venues here in the US or internationally. A few of the destination weddings I've photographed have been in: Key Largo, FL at a private waterfront residence; Miami Beach, FL at the Newport Beachside Hotel & Resort; Philadelphia, PA at The Downtown Club; Lake Tahoe, CA at Squaw Valley and the Gatekeeper's Museum; St. Martin Island in the Caribbean at a private oceanfront residence; Carmel, CA at Bernardus Lodge & Spa; Lake Tahoe, CA at Edgewood Resort; The Terrace Room at High Camp at The Squaw Valley Resort; The Nicklaus Club in Monterey, CA; The Carmel Mission in Carmel, CA; Reno, NV at the River School Farm; Ocean City, NJ at The Flanders Hotel; multiple trips to Martha's Vineyard; Quail Lodge in Carmel, CA; Playa del Carmen, Mexico; and the list for the destination locations are growing each wedding season as well. So if you're planning a destination wedding please reach out to see if I'm available and for current travel prices.
Engagement sessions are honestly one of my favorite parts of the entire experience I offer for your wedding day milestone. It provides a way for us to get to know each other a little better, you get to see my casual style of working with you, you become more comfortable in front of the camera, get to know some of my prompts and of course we get some amazing photographs. Engagements photos also will contrast nicely with your wedding photos where you'll obviously have your wedding attire on all day. Engagements shoots also help to tell part of your relationship story and that's one of the main reasons why I think they are a great experience. Something I like to do differently is work with each of my clients to find the perfect location for the shoot. From a classic engagement shoot around Boston, at the Boston Public Gardens, Fan Pier, the North End, Beacon Hill or something different around New England I want to help capture your story. I'm worked with couples to plan their engagement sessions in some beautiful locations, such as: the MFA in Boston; a special sunset sailboat cruise in Newport; at a local horse barn; at a dilapidated drive-in movie theater; at Central Park in NYC; on many college campus' around New England including Boston College, Southern New Hampshire University and Harvard; at many local beaches including Crane Beach, Scarborough State Beach, and Sandy Neck Beach; at Piers Park in East Boston; at Walden Pond in Concord; at The Arnold Arboretum; in Brooklyn NY; along the Charles River Esplanade; on rooftop decks overlooking the Boston skyline and the Charles River; at Castle Island; at Roger Williams Park in Providence; at local boatyards and so many gorgeous State parks and Trustees properties all over New England. Please consider adding an engagement session to your photography experience and I'd be happy to talk more with you about your options and the benefits.
