Pawtuckaway State Park is one of my favorite ‘local’ mountain parks to explore. I’ve been there a handful of times, and have yet to take the same journey twice. I had recently been there with my wife and pup when Brianna asked about doing their engagement shoot there. Couldn’t wait! The day of the shoot brought partly cloudy skies and perfect temps. We did a little jaunt around the lake and then a quick trek up South Peak- I use the term ‘quick’ here loosely! Anyway, this was probably one of my favorite shoots of the summer!
This was, hands down, one of the coolest experiences I’ve had in weddings. Not only did the location blow me away, but the hospitality I was shown did as well. Both Sheena and Bradley’s family’s welcomed me into this 3 day celebration with open arms. As a smaller, 40 person wedding, it was hard not to get to know all the family and guests. I was invited in to be a part of the celebration just as much as anyone else there. They made sure I ate, relaxed, and partied along side of them the whole weekend. Now, to get back to the wedding film- this is a reflection of that time that I spent with them. Beauty, tranquility, and some great times. I hope you enjoy this film as much as I do.
This was one of those weddings that make you smile straight from the start of the day. As soon as I walked into Kelsey’s ‘getting ready’ room, I was greeted with smiles and open arms. The laughs that both the girls and guys shared with each other resonated through me- to this day! Their big day was nothing short of fabulous. From their ‘first touch’ to the last dance, this was another one of those weddings I’ll have the pleasure of reliving every time I look at these photos.
Wow. Talk about an awesome couple and an awesome ‘big day’. Hannah and Mark had a sweet, nautical themed wedding that started at the Winchester Unitarian Society, where they tied the knot - literally - and promised their love to one another. After a few I do’s we headed to Piers Park in East Boston for some FABULOUS portraits on one of the nicest Saturdays of the year. Now, their reception was held at an old Firehouse in Chelsea turned intimate restaurant. While the configuration of the restaurant gave me a good old fashioned challenge on lighting, the place is SO COOL and made for an awesome setting for a wedding party! So, congrats Hannah and Mark, and may your life together be as much fun as your big day was!!
I had the pleasure of talking a bit with Wedding Boston for an interview. Click the link below and take a look into my creative process!
You know when you get one of those days that it really wasn’t supposed to be that nice, then it turns out to be REALLY nice? This was one of those days. We all met up along the banks of the Charles near MIT do do a mini session for some save the date photos, and the forecaster rain had given way to a mostly sunny afternoon- firm riverside breeze and all. Nora and George were naturals in front of the lens, too! I love when couples take a breath and really embrace the moment with each other like these two did. After I got used to looking before crossing the bike path, we stepped across the street and ended up getting what will probably be my favorite engagement shot of the season! Looking forward to the full engagement shoot with these two!
I had the pleasure of starting my 2019 wedding season with Jillian and Sean at the Bedford Village Inn. I had been to a wedding as a guest a few years prior, so needless to say I was excited to shoot a wedding at this quaint little venue.
Jillian and Sean’s big day started with sunny skies and mild temperatures- not bad for a mid March wedding! I quickly realized how loved they both were by their friends, and by the time the ceremony ended, it was obvious the wedding day was going to be one to remember. Quite a few laughs (and beers!) later, and I was walking to my car with a sore jaw from smiling so hard all night. Congrats guys, may your new lives together be as memorable as your big day!
There is something about a seaside town that makes everything that much more peaceful. The same could be said about Anna and Paul’s Manchester, MA backyard wedding. A stones throw to the beach, they held their ceremony under a large oak tree in Anna’s parents yard. These kinds of events are my jam- the tranquility of being surrounded by friends and family, while at home where all your memories are, is something special. That feeling quickly turned to excitement as their party started. Who knew you could have so much fun under a tent in your backyard?!? Congratulations guys!!
Monica and Brian had their wedding the day after thanksgiving, which gave everything that much more of a sense of love if you ask me. From start to finish, all I saw were smiles. Monica and Brian both brought a lot of love to their wedding, and it was a real pleasure to be present. As for the locations, all I can say is WOW! A beautiful church followed up by a barn by the hillside? Yes please! The Barn at Gibbet Hill is a charming little building, rustic in all it’s New England glory- makes me feel right at home. All I can say is congrats guys, your big day was one I’ll always remember.
David and Marissa’s wedding day was what you would picture when dreaming about the ‘perfect’ summer afternoon wedding. Right on the ocean, the Eolia Mansion at Harkness State Park provides one of the most tranquil venue views you can ask for. With their ceremony right by the waters edge, surrounded by friends and family, I don’t think I’ve witnessed a more peaceful wedding. Sharing David and Marissa’s wedding day with them was everything I love about wedding photography.
