Stephanie and Casey were married on a beautiful sunny June day at the Smith Barn, Brooksby Farm in Peabody, MA. Seeking shade from the sun, we first explored a small forest near the ceremony location. Stephanie and Casey were perfectly styled with a classic elegance that suited both of them perfectly. The ceremony was held behind the house, in front of gorgeous flora and fauna. After they said their vows, everyone made their way to the stunning barn where guests enjoyed cocktails and delicious hours d'oeuvres. Next, the newlyweds had their first dance as wives, followed by touching speeches, cake cutting, father-daughter dances, and bouquet tosses. Right before sunset, we headed into the vineyard for golden-hour portraits. When we made our way back into the barn, it was time to dance, and dance they did! We have rarely seen such an enthusiastic, skilled, and fun group of guests! The night was spectacular and dazzling. Congratulations Stephanie and Casey- enjoy this sneak peak of your photos!
Mike and Diane were married on a beautifully overcast summer day in June. While Diane donned her laurel crown, Mike made sure every detail was perfectly set at the 1st Parish Church in Milton Massachusetts. Their service was beautiful, highlighted by music performed and readings done by family. After the ceremony, guests headed to the creative and modern Steel and Rye in Milton for the reception. Throughout the night of excellent food, family and friends offered incredible poetry, some new, some classic, and some original! Congratulations Diane and Mike, thank you for having us take part in your elegant and beautiful wedding!
I met Keara and Tara in the Boston City Hall on a wildly windy Thursday afternoon. Keara and Tara had been together for many years, and decided to make it official due to having to live apart for the next couple months. Sweetly, both of them surprised each other with personalized proposals on Thursday morning, so when I found them, they were sitting on a bench fiddling with their new rings anxiously awaiting the ceremony. When their names were called, we made our way past the desks to the office, where they went over the details then took their places in front of the bookshelf. All at once the reality and weight of the moment hit as they each said their vows smiling; full of joy, excitement, and confidence in their choice to be together. After the ceremony they cheered, grabbed the paperwork, and with a skip in their step exited the offices for a post-ceremony portrait session. While the hurricane-like weather outside may have intimidated us at first, we quickly got creative and made the best of it, ending being thankful for the soft lighting and rain. After finding some surprisingly interesting and unique settings inside city hall, we made our way to the Boston Public Gardens. The gardens, usually swarming with people, were practically empty, which was incredible! Balancing a camera, backpack, and umbrella may have proved challenging, but it was totally worth it. Congratulations Keara and Tara, it was wonderful working with such a loving and inspirational couple- enjoy your photos!
I met up with Akriti and Sandesh near the Swan Boats in the Boston Public Gardens. We ducked under the bridge for a few shots, went inside of tree curtains, and watched the ducks swim throughout the pond. After exploring the Beacon Hill area, we made our way to the Hatch Shell and Esplanade for some sparking images. Akriti and Sandesh were so fun to work with, so kind, and so loving towards each other. We wish you the best in your upcoming 3-day wedding and hope to see you again in the future. Congratulations, and enjoy!
On a perfect, warm, bright spring day, Carissa, Alex, and I explored central Boston for their engagement session. Carissa and Alex had their first kiss in Park Street Station, so naturally, that's where we started! We found a beautiful mural, and had just enough time before the train arrived to try out a few things on opposite sides of the tracks. Next, we made our way down to the Boston Public Garden, stopping in the Commons for a quick and joy-filled Carousel ride along the way. The golden light was perfect, and Carissa and Alex were so comfortable and fun together. We lucked out with incredible flowers in the gardens, and had just enough time before the sun set to explore a few favorite pockets of the Beacon Hill area. I love how this session came out- and I hope you do too! Congratulations again Carissa and Alex, it was such a pleasure working with both of you. Your love is so apparent and inspiring.
Bethany and Kyle were married in May at The Wadsworth Homestead (a historic wedding and event facility) in Geneseo, New York. Over the course of the morning, the house went from quiet, to full of love, laughter, smiles, and so many hugs. Kyle and Bethany got ready hidden from each other among the many rooms of the second floor, calling to each other from time to time. Before the ceremony, we explored the first floor with Bethany, to take some pictures of her in her gorgeous dress in the Rose Living room, the Library, and on the South Porch. A little (lucky) rain called for a beautiful indoor ceremony, where Bethany entered coming down the main stairs, meeting Kyle at the gold trimmed mirror in the front hall. Surrounded closely by friends and family, Kyle and Bethany said their vows and held hands for the first time as husband and wife. The reception was held in the tent outdoors, where guests enjoyed taco and antipasto stations, a 20s themed photo booth, and excellent music to dance to. Bethany and Kyle could not stop smiling and laughing together the whole day- the joy and happiness between them was palpable- and we loved being there to capture their special day. Congratulations Bethany and Kyle- we wish you so much happiness and hope to work with you again!
