Chelsie and Justin got married in a Beverly backyard. It rained that morning, but the skies cleared, and instead of thinking about the weather, people focused on Chelsie and Justin and their infectious energy and clear love for one another. I often wish I was a guest at fun weddings I photograph, but there was such a wealth of great moments that I felt especially happy to be chief historian on this one. Congratulations, Chelsie and Justin!
Wedding days go by fast (have you heard that yet?), and the bigger the event the harder it can feel like you’re keeping up with everything going on. For two self-proclaimed introverts I was really impressed with how present Caryn and Patrick seemed to be on their wedding day. You can get pulled in lots of different directions when so much is going on, but I felt like Caryn and Patrick spent a lot of it together . . . and on the dance floor. That can sometimes be easier said than done. Regardless, I certainly had a good time. I’ve shot a few weddings at the Boston Public Library but not quite on this scale. What a beautiful day. Congratulations, Caryn 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.
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.
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 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. Congratulations, guys!
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!
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. Congratulations, Rebecca and Björn!
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. Congratulations, Hannah and Colin!
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. Congratulations, guys!
