Boston Wedding Photographer

Work and Life

It’s been a long time, but you, the reader wouldn’t know that since I took the dates off my posts. My last wedding was posted July 2013. And that was the last wedding I photographed, which was in May 2013.  Why a new blog post?  I wanted to let visitors know that I am no longer actively shooting weddings. Will I ever shoot them again?  I don’t know the answer to that right now. But I thought you deserved to know what was going on in my life…

As many of you know I am an attorney by training, and have worked extensively in the area of sales and use tax and value-added tax. As I gain more and more expertise being the sales and use tax geek that I love being, I don’t have the time to photograph weddings. Being a professional wedding photographer takes a lot of time and commitment, and means that you don’t have many weekends to yourself. This means that I was often working on extreme over-drive. It was time to take a step back from photographing weddings.

Instead of photographing professionally, over the past year I have offered my knowledge on a variety of business topics, including sales and use taxes and income taxes, to photographers throughout the country by publishing articles in Behind The Shutter Magazine and speaking at multi-day conferences like Shutterfest.  Thank you to Sal Cincotta for those opportunities, because I really enjoy helping others by sharing what I know as a tax geek and a lawyer.

While my career as a tax professional is really important to me and while that is where my full concentration goes, it doesn’t mean that I won’t photograph anymore.  Photography started as a hobby and a passion of mine, and it continues to be hobby and a passion of mine. You see, there are two new special little girls in our lives that I love photographing.

Last December we welcomed two babies into our lives, and Maarit and I are so grateful to be parents. It’s amazing, being a parent. Prior to being a parent you have absolutely no idea what it will feel like. Then you instantaneously achieve parent status and BOOM, so many things change. But they are amazing changes. I have traded afternoon weekend cocktails on the Boston Waterfront for little laughs, lots of storybooks, pushing a double stroller, getting spit up on, and feeling what it is truly like to love your child with all of your heart. Uhm, I wouldn’t trade my new role of “mother” for anything in this world. And I am so grateful that Maarit and I — both mothers — are getting to experience this wonder and excitement, the good and the bad, together.

If you have come to my site looking for a wedding photographer, get in touch. I know many amazing photographers that may be a good fit for your big day and I would love to tell you who they areicon wink Work and Life

Gay Wedding Photos featured in Rangefinder Magazine

This past October some of my photos were featured in Rangefinder’s State of the Industry issue. Rangefinder is a magazine for professional photographers, and one that I really respect, so it was an honor to be in there. The feature was also super exciting because the article that contained my photos was all about gay weddings…

You can check out the online version of the magazine and my photos here.

Emily & Julie – West Dennis Yacht Club Cape Cod Wedding Photographer

What is going on with the Kristin Korpos Photography blog? Finally a new posting!! Sorry to those that have been patiently waiting. I was working on updating the blog, adding some new features, and well, this past 2012 wedding season was SUPER crazy! Now that things have calmed down, I have a lot of catching up to do! Let me start with Julie and Emily…

Maarit and I LOVED this wedding that took place at the West Dennis Yacht Club on a very windy, but very sunny and rain-free day. The rest of the state had torrential rain that day, so we were lucky to be on the cape!

This wedding had so many sweet and personal touches, and much of the details and decor involved in their wedding were prepared by their friends and family. Emily’s mom handmade the blue paper that backed the ceremony programs, Julie’s mom brought in sand from Florida for the centerpieces and put those together in the mason jars, Emily’s two aunts made the escort cards and the table numbers, another family friend sewed the burlap table runners…

The other little tidbit I personally learned is that their florist, owner of White Flowers, had also been the florist for Emily’s parent’s wedding, and regularly handled flower orders for Emily’s grandparents…and I can see why, the flowers looked awesome and the bouquets were stunning!

Enjoy some of my favorites that tell the story of Julie and Emily’s wedding day…and you will see that not only were their friends and family so loving and supportive on their big day, they also knew how to party the night away!!!
