Lisa & Paul | The Neighborhood Club of Quincy Wedding

Lisa & Paul are absolute incredible friends before they are clients. We got to know both of them over dinner a couple of times and they instantly reminded us what true love looks like. As a matter of fact, these two remind myself of Jenn and I’s relationship. Both of them are adventurous, loving, kind, and so thankful for everyone in their life. Their wedding was a true showcase of all of that. I am so excited to share a little sneak peek of their big day while we finish up their gallery and they finish their month long Europe honeymoon (anyone else of jealous of that? I know I am!)

Samantha & Michael | Newport Officers Club Wedding

It’s not everyday we get to go into a full on navy base to photograph a wedding but if there was a spot for that to happen, it would obviously be in Newport, RI. Samantha & Mike’s wedding was absolutely stunning last month at The Newport Officers Club. The rain held off for a day and gave us a beautiful backdrop of the Newport Bridge and an incredible reception. We’re so excited to share a couple of sneak peeks while we get to work on the rest of their gallery!

Liz & Phil | The Bohlin Newport, RI Wedding

After our couples book with us, we normally meet up plenty of times before the wedding to not only go over everything and make sure that we’re all prepared for the day ahead but more importantly to get to know our couples, their story and their families. Over the past 8 years there’s only been a couple of exceptions where we’re usually unable to do so but when we arrive on the wedding day, it’s like we’ve been getting together all along. Liz & Phil were one of those exceptions.

Jenn, Oksana and I had an absolute blast documenting their day as it unfolded. It was almost like we were documenting our best friend. The Bohlin in Newport, RI provided the perfect backdrop for their incredible summery, coastal vibe and their wedding party, family and friends were some of the absolute nicest people on the planet.

We’re so excited to share this sneak peek of their day. If you’d like to know when their full wedding gallery is live, sign up here!

2018 in Photographs

If you’ve been following along, every new year’s eve we try and post a blog summarizing our year that we’ve had. 2018 had been absolutely incredible and that’s all thanks to the amazing support and love from you. This year we photographed over 12 weddings, 9 portrait sessions and 8 lovebird sessions for a grand total of 29 this year. Each year I am blown away at how this business keeps growing and growing. From the bottom of my heart, thank you. 2018 has been so much fun and I cannot wait for 2019 and all the incredible stories we’ll get to document.


Here’s a look back on 2018…

A ton of you got engaged this year…

Cassandra & Paul | Bittersweet Farm Westport, MA Wedding

As a wedding photographer you pretty much always look forward to your weddings. You get to know the couple over the course of a year with their family and their relationships. It all comes together beautifully in the end. For Cassandra & Paul I enjoyed everything just a little bit more than usual. Cassandra was a referral bride from another client of mine, Tanna. Anytime a bride comes to me from another client, I am instantly more excited than usual. Not only did Tanna send Cassandra my way but Tanna was actually the MOH which made this day even better! To top it all off, Cassandra & Paul got married at one of my favorite venues: Bittersweet Farm

Bittersweet was one of the first ever venues I got to photograph at professionally on one of my first ever weddings (Alice & Josh for those of you who've been around awhile). I absolutely love the farm feel, mixed with the amazing food and beautiful ceremony location. It couldn't be a better place to tie the knot for these two.

Cassandra & Paul - Thank you for allowing me to document your day and spend time with you, your family and your friends. Jenn and I truly had a blast and we can't wait to show you more.

For now, here's a sneak peek! 
 

A special shoutout to all of those who made Cassandra & Paul's day possible:

Peter & Anna | A backyard wedding

Last month, Jenn and I thought we'd have the month off and free from all the wedding madness. That was until Peter emailed me and told me about his backyard wedding that he was planning just a few weeks away. At first, their thought was to DIY everything they could. They soon realized that their wedding photos are the only thing that they'll have leftover and that's a bit scary to leave in the hands of a friend or family member. Plus - they wanted everyone to enjoy their day, especially their guests. 

Peter is a screen writer, and Anna a teacher. I quickly got to know these two and their story. I was blown away at how much these two were in love. I get to meet a lot of couples and all of them truly are in love but Peter & Anna we're on a whole new level. They were madly in love with one another and it was so infectious and inspirational. I look up to these two and the story they've already created. They're each other's best friend, confidant, and lover. Their day was something I was looking forward to all month. It was so special, intimate and just plain perfect. I'll stop talking and let the photos speak for themselves. 

Thank you both for allowing me to be apart of your special day and capture it in a true document format. You are amazing and I can't wait to show you the rest!

Meet: Peter & Anna

Kaylah & Josh | Engagement Session in Lincoln, RI

Whenever a couple tells me they're adventurous, I jump at the opportunity to do something fun for their photos. One thing I mention to them all the time is that these photos should feel like them. It shouldn't be posed and fake. If you don't go to the beach, why are we going to take your photos on the beach? If you're not city people why would we go downtown and take your engagement session photos there? I encourage couple's to always choose a spot or a location that means something to them, or at least gives them an opportunity to do something they love. 

Josh & Kaylah love to hike and be outdoors. We spoke about doing a session at their favorite hiking spot in New Hampshire but then decided we could probably get that same look and feel someplace closer. I think we hit it right on the nail. Lincoln Woods provided the perfect backdrop to what is now some of my favorite Lovebird Session photos. I hope you enjoy this little sneak peek into their love story.
