The Great Dog Rescue of New England (GDRNE) is a non-profit that has adopted out over 10,000 dogs since its inception over a decade ago. Most of their adorable pups are saved from high-kill shelters or shuttled in from other rescues throughout Tennessee and other southern states. Some have experienced physical or psychological traumas from life as a stray to abuses by their previous owners. Other have simply been surrendered by families who could no longer care for their pet. The volunteers at GDRNE vet each potential family to make sure that every dog will fit into their new home.

This video portrays one of many meet and greets held across New England each year by the organization. GDRNE and several other local rescues congregated in the lobby of Tsongas Arena in Lowell to connect these disadvantaged puppies and adult dogs with new loving families. Many of the dogs in the video still need a home and applications can still be filled out.

Brit Perkins Photography - A New Partnership

Hello Internet Peeps,

As of November, I have partnered with Brit Perkins Photography to create a video division run by myself. I have already completed one wedding, and look to do more as well as create unique videos for engagement sessions and other event videography. Brittany and I worked together under my previous employer and she and her husband, Ben, are fun to work with or simply just to hang out with. She takes the time to really get to know her clients before picking up the camera and, as such, her photography is very personal and she often captures some touching candid moments: Real emotions and not just poses. Brittany's work extends past weddings to family portraits and head shots to pregnancy announcements and newborns. You can see examples of her work on her website.

Below is our first collaborative effort: A November wedding between Ashlee & Stephen.
