Amanda and Curtis

I don’t get a chance to do a lot of winter weddings, but Amanda and Curtis’ Harrington Farm celebration reminded me why I love them so much. When it’s cold outside it seems the warmth and intimacy is heightened as everybody gets cozy inside. People warmed up by the fireplace after the ceremony and scorched […]

Best of 2016

My year started off in February with an elopement in Hawaii. Less than a week later I was photographing a wedding in Michigan. The rest of the year I made my way through New England, but I love the beginning contrasts. From warm weather paradise to Grand Rapids. I was excited for both, and I approached […]

Corey and Frank

Corey and Frank got married at the Cyclorama in the South End. This was my last wedding of 2016, and I can’t think of a better way of ending a great year. I didn’t get a chance to meet Corey and Frank before the wedding, but they were both extremely kind and pleasant to be around. […]

Carly and Jeff

Carly and Jeff got married on top of a mountain. Jay Peak in northern Vermont is a very special place to them, so it only made since to start their married life in the clouds. What started off as relatively tame day turned pleasantly bizarre as horse and unicorn heads appeared on the dance floor. My favorite […]

Ally and Mark

Look. It rained. The whole day. And I’m sure leading up to the wedding Ally and Mark were worried about what the forecast would mean for their Truro celebration. They had good reason. But in the end people still danced and laughed just as much as if the ground had been dry. I was definitely laughing most of […]

Isabella and John

Isabella and John were married at the Willowdale Estate in Topsfield. Isabella got ready at her mom’s salon in Belmont. I loved photographing amongst all the activity in a place that has so much meaning. The whole day had such a strong feeling of excitement and celebration. That was particularly true on that dance floor which was […]

Jenna and Justin

Jenna and Justin got married at the Marriott Longwharf in Boston. I wasn’t able to meet them in person before the wedding, but I quickly felt very comfortable with Jenna and Justin and all their favorite people. This was a fun one, and I’m so glad I was a part of it. Congratulations, Jenna and Justin!

Kelly and Matt

Kelly and Matt got married at Elm Bank in Wellesley. They didn’t talk about getting ready together, but it naturally ended up that way. They separated when Kelly got in her dress, and when they happened to see each other next Matt was holding a bathroom sign. The lack of orchestration made the real emotions feel more pronounced and […]

Liana and Sujeet

Liana and Sujeet got married at the Stone House in Little Compton. Family, great friends, and good food. That’s what was important to Liana and Sujeet, and that’s exactly what their wedding was all about.  One of my favorite moments was when Liana spotted dogs, and the bridesmaids began to panic. They knew wearing a wedding […]

Kristen and Stephen

Kristen and Stephen got married at St. Margaret’s Church before heading to the Essex County Club for a beautiful reception. There was a lot of storytelling and laughing throughout the day. I’m always looking for moments and real emotion and there was no shortage of that here. Kristen and Stephen seemed so happy and excited just to […]
