Hello! Welcome to my website! My name is Gregory Hitchcock. I am a Wedding and Portrait photographer living in Boston. I am also a self pronounced expert of fine pizza, loving father of two gremlins, and tinkerer.
I am now and always have been a camera guy. I have had a camera in my hand for most of my life. The obsession's with sharing my view of the world started at about five years of age while I accompanied my dad and treks to the railroad tracks to watch the freight trains roar by.
A bit more about myself and my life here in Boston
I am the father of three relentless, action packed kids. I have a daughter, a son, and a hundred and fifty pound German Shepard. Life is never dull for our family. I have found that my completely unpredictable children's are the prefect opportunity for constant sources of inspiration for new portraits! I am never without some sort of camera.
As I got older I realized I could use the strange thing called a camera to create. More specifically and it is within the past 16 years that I have come to realize what really drives me as a photographer: I want to create a meaningful impact in people’s lives through my photography. I do that at weddings, senior portrait sessions, family gatherings, and many other special events and other occasions.
In the seventeen years I have been capturing weddings I have found that each couple has a unique vision for their day (that I enjoy assisting them to realize). My goal is to help couples capture their style through personalized coverage. If you choose to book, we will spend time getting to know that style and vision for your relationship and wedding. I will then tailor my coverage to create long lasting images as unique as your relationship.
Story of Gregory
My process and what it is like to work with me
Coverage tailored to you
When a couple decides to book me, the first task I have is to understand their unique personality and relationship. Every couple is different. Through discussions and a few image collecting exercises I will work to define the style and expectations of the couple. I will use this information to customize ideas, locations and coverage to fit the style of the couple. Therefore, no two weddings are ever captured in the same manner. Using a blend of photojournalism to capture those once in a lifetime moment and artistically directed shots each couple gets a wholly personalized set of images to reflect their event.
Photojournalism is what many people refer to as "candids". Photojournalism is loved because of its fresh and authentic nature. These are images that are truly in the moment. When I am operating in this mode, I am drawing on my years of experience to anticipate the numerous amazing moments of the wedding day. I use photojournalism throughout the entire event as discussed with the couple. My portfolio of photo journalistic style images can be viewed here.
Dramatic Artistic Design
In order create amazing imagery I ask the couple to gather examples of romantic portraits which inspire them, then we discuss ideas, themes, locations, and other details of the wedding day. From there I setup, build, and create personalized images taking into consideration their style, the locations we are going to on the wedding day. This style pf photography includes lighting design, pre-selected locations, camera effects, and advanced planning. More samples of this style of imagery can be viewed here.
“My now-Husband(!) and I found Gregory on Thumbtack.com. We were immediately impressed with how his images seemed to capture the many feelings of the event without seeming like the subjects were merely moving through a prescribed list of shots, whether posed or not. I really appreciate candid, one-in-a-million shots, and I felt like Gregory managed to capture plenty of those. We both recommend Gregory very highly and will hopefully work with him again should the need arise!”
