Shea and Patrick

Shea and Patrick got married at Gibbett Hill in Groton. The rain drowned out everyone else’s Fourth of July plans, but I couldn’t tell if Shea or Patrick actually cared about the weather. They were just anxious to see each other and celebrate with all their friends and family. This wedding supported my theory that inhospitable weather outside makes people settle in and party that much harder inside. Great wedding. Great people. Congratulations, Shea and Patrick.

Beach Baby

Having a winter baby really makes you appreciate the summer. We’ve been visiting grandparents, eating solid foods, chasing cats, and getting in as much beach time as possible. I thought the first time Ellis got a fist full of sand in his mouth would be the last. But he seems to have a taste for it.

Kristina and Ethan

Some of Kristina and Ethan’s wedding pictures look like their engagement pictures. Tufts University played a big role in both, and it’s kind of cool to see two different times in the same place. Kristina and Ethan’s playfulness was particularly present on their wedding day. The Legos, the champaign in a can, post-ceremony Starbucks trips, and updating social media profiles in the limo made the wedding day a lot of fun. Congratulations, guys!

Tracy and Dominick

Tracy and Dominick got married in the future. They used Uber for transportation to the ceremony and toward the end of the reception at Met Back Bay they crossed the street to get scanned in a 3D Photo Booth. Dominick is a talented photographer, and there were a handful of photographer guests, so I tried not to second guess all my movements. I’m really happy for these two, and I’m so glad to have been a part of their wedding.

Nikki - What an amazing collection of photos!June 30, 2014 – 12:10 pm

Allison and Steve

Allison and Steve started the engagement session off with Nagroni’s. It always helps to take the edge off a little before you go out in public with a photographer in tow. We began at the apartment they’ve lived in for more than three years and then ventured out into the neighborhood. Allison and Steve were great photo subjects, but I mainly just enjoyed their company. Can’t wait for the wedding next year!

Rebecca and Björn

You might remember Rebecca and Björn from their engagement session last year. It’s no surprise their great taste showed up in their wedding plans. The five course tasting menu, the thoughtful wine pairings and the art from their home were all very nice touches. Rebecca and Björn were great hosts at their Willowdale Estate wedding and I had a lot of fun documenting the beautiful day.

Hannah and Colin

Hannah and Colin’s wedding was at Mount Hope Farm in Bristol, RI. I didn’t have the chance to meet Hannah and Colin before the wedding, but I felt extremely comfortable with them and their families. The ceremony by the water was simply beautiful, and the reception was a lot of fun. I’m so happy for these two and honored to have been the one to document the beginning of this next chapter.

Marisa and Josh

Marisa and Josh got married in Portsmouth, NH at the Hilton Garden Inn and the One Hundred Club. The wedding was not all that big, but the wedding party was, and they definitely set a festive tone. They were responsible for some of my favorite photos from the day. Marisa and Josh were both incredibly sweet, and I had a great time celebrating with them.

Not Just a Mom

To be in a position to take care of others, you need to take care of yourself first. When not at work, Brooke is either responding to Ellis’ needs or to those of her bearded adult baby who also needs attention. If she’s lucky, she might get an episode or two of The Mindy Project each night where nobody is asking anything of her. So, I was glad to see her find clothes not covered in spit-up and go out with a friend to experience a life where no one demands anything of her. She really benefited without missing anything at home. Ellis and I were there with all our needs when she returned.

Christine and Clayton

Christine and Clayton aren’t most comfortable being the center of attention. They made the wedding day seem familiar by having it at the family home, and after the ceremony Christine changed into a cute blue dress to blend in with their loved ones instead of feeling like she was standing out. I loved the relaxed and understated tone Christine and Clayton set for their wedding. Photographing it was fun, but so was just being there.
