Juliana and Dave

Juliana and Dave got married downtown at The Colonnade. You can tell a lot about people by the company they keep. I knew I would like working again with these two after their engagement session, but I wasn’t prepared for how sweet and completely hilarious Juliana and Dave’s wedding party would be. This day was such a treat. Congratulations, Juliana and Dave!

First Summer

This has probably been the best summer of my life. Maybe it just feels that way because we lost most of last summer to nausea and home renovations. Although I think it’s actually because seeing Ellis show the first signs of himself not as a baby but as a little boy has brought so much joy into our home. The days were filled with more chores and less time to relax, but I’m discovering idle time isn’t as valuable as I thought (even if it is still highly coveted).

Liz and Jim

We started Liz and Jim’s engagement session at their South End condo. For city-dwellers they have access to some great outdoor spaces including a cozy deck and a plot in their community garden. I had so much fun seeing the city through their eyes and experiences. And I can’t wait for their wedding in Rhode Island next year. I really enjoy being around these two.

Beverly and Nick

I’m not sure I’ve ever seen a wedding with so many variables run so remarkably smooth. Thanks to Beverly and Nick’s planning (and two extremely helpful sisters committed to keeping everything on track) no one had to worry much about the logistics. Instead, everyone could just enjoy the celebration. The ceremony was at Harvard’s Memorial Church and the reception was at the Mandarin Oriental. This wedding was a lot of fun, and I’m so glad I could be a part of it. Congratulations, Beverly and Nick!

Joanna and Eric

Joanna and Eric got married at the Liberty Hotel. They surrounded themselves with lots of friends and family (including their dog Buster) and celebrated in a spot that showcased the beauty of their city. Joanna and Eric are two of the nicest people I’ve had the pleasure of working with this year, and I couldn’t be happier for them. Congratulations, guys!

Lizzie and Paul

I love when couples get ready together. There’s always really sweet moments, and it’s helpful for practicing your first dance. Lizzie and Paul’s Boston Public Library wedding was beautiful. The perfect weather added to the stunning library setting. Their friends and family were a joy to be around, and I was honored to be present. Congratulations, Lizzie and Paul!

Rachel and Jamil

Rachel and Jamil got married at one of my favorite venues. Before their Mount Hope Farm ceremony we went exploring over the beach rocks. I loved that Rachel didn’t seem to care much about her high heels. The whole day had that care-free feeling. Rachel and Jamil had the people closest to them nearby, and that’s all that seemed to matter.

Katie and Travis

You might remember Katie and Travis from their engagement session last year. That’s where I got to know them better and start to really look forward to their wedding at Sky Meadow Country Club in Nashua. I loved the energy of this wedding and took way too many photos of the dance floor. Congratulations, Katie and Travis! So happy for you guys.

Chelsie and Justin

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!Beverly-ma-wedding-001Beverly-ma-wedding-002Beverly-ma-wedding-003Beverly-ma-wedding-004Beverly-ma-wedding-005Beverly-ma-wedding-006Beverly-ma-wedding-007Beverly-ma-wedding-008Beverly-ma-wedding-009Beverly-ma-wedding-010Beverly-ma-wedding-011Beverly-ma-wedding-012Beverly-ma-wedding-013Beverly-ma-wedding-014Beverly-ma-wedding-015Beverly-ma-wedding-016Beverly-ma-wedding-017Beverly-ma-wedding-018Beverly-ma-wedding-019Beverly-ma-wedding-020Beverly-ma-wedding-021Beverly-ma-wedding-022Beverly-ma-wedding-023Beverly-ma-wedding-024Beverly-ma-wedding-025Beverly-ma-wedding-026Beverly-ma-wedding-027Beverly-ma-wedding-028Beverly-ma-wedding-029Beverly-ma-wedding-030Beverly-ma-wedding-031Beverly-ma-wedding-032Beverly-ma-wedding-033Beverly-ma-wedding-034Beverly-ma-wedding-035Beverly-ma-wedding-036Beverly-ma-wedding-037Beverly-ma-wedding-038Beverly-ma-wedding-039Beverly-ma-wedding-040Beverly-ma-wedding-041Beverly-ma-wedding-042

Caryn and Patrick

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.
