Sarah and Griff

Sarah and Griff got married at the Omni Parker Hotel. My favorite part of this wedding was Sarah and Griff. They were both so easy going and charming. They set a tone that kept things from feeling rushed or stressful. My second favorite part of their wedding was the dance floor. Their friends have some pretty amazing dance moves, and that’s always an honor to photograph. Congratulations, Sarah and Griff!

Danielle and Daniel

There aren’t many weddings where I’ve laughed as much as I did at Danielle and Daniel’s State Room wedding. The wit of these two, as well as their friends and family, regularly had me laughing instead of doing my job. Luckily, there were lots of opportunities to capture people laughing and displaying a range of joyful emotions. Congratulations, Danielle and Daniel!state-room-boston-wedding-01state-room-boston-wedding-02state-room-boston-wedding-03state-room-boston-wedding-04state-room-boston-wedding-05state-room-boston-wedding-06state-room-boston-wedding-07state-room-boston-wedding-08state-room-boston-wedding-09state-room-boston-wedding-10state-room-boston-wedding-11state-room-boston-wedding-13state-room-boston-wedding-14state-room-boston-wedding-15state-room-boston-wedding-16state-room-boston-wedding-17state-room-boston-wedding-18state-room-boston-wedding-19state-room-boston-wedding-20state-room-boston-wedding-21state-room-boston-wedding-22state-room-boston-wedding-23state-room-boston-wedding-24state-room-boston-wedding-25state-room-boston-wedding-26state-room-boston-wedding-27state-room-boston-wedding-28state-room-boston-wedding-29state-room-boston-wedding-30state-room-boston-wedding-31state-room-boston-wedding-32state-room-boston-wedding-33state-room-boston-wedding-34

Cole and Nina

Cole and Nina got married in New Hampshire. I had never been to Francestown, but I’ll likely be back. Although I’ll have to accept that next time Cole and Nina won’t be there with all their beautiful friends and family members. I had such a great time photographing this group. Everyone’s emotions brimmed at the surface and made it all a joy to document. I was lucky to be there. Congratulations, Cole and Nina!

Kerry & Bill Folger - What a beautiful and blessed wedding! We wish we could have been there but appreciate these photos!October 19, 2015 – 10:42 am

Matt and Seth

Matt and Seth got married at the Cambridge Multicultural Arts Center. I’ve photographed a handful of their friends’ weddings, and it was a pleasure and honor to finally shoot theirs. The ceremony was among the most touching and personal I can recall, and I loved photographing their dance floor. Congratulations, Matt and Seth! I’m really happy for you guys.

Kelly and Joe

I’ve been looking forward to Kelly and Joe’s wedding ever since I got to know them during their engagement session. I was expecting an abundance of energy and warmth from the two of them, and I was glad to see those characteristics were shared by their friends and family, too. I’d be happy to shoot this wedding every weekend. Congrats, Kelly and Joe!

Caroline and Rob

I didn’t know I liked photographing horses so much until I showed up at Caroline and Rob’s wedding. The ceremony and reception were held at Caroline’s family home and equestrian center in Berlin, MA. The property itself is one of the more beautiful pieces of land I’ve ever been on, and having the horses involved in the festivities added a certain magic to the whole event. Congratulations, Caroline and Rob! Thank you for including me!

Kate and Corey

Kate and Corey got married at Saltwater Farm and Vineyard in Stonington, Conn. We didn’t have the opportunity to meet before the wedding, but I immediately felt comfortable around Kate and Corey and their loved ones. Everything was very relaxed, and I loved trying to capture all the beautiful little moments aided by the laid back atmosphere these two created. Congratulations, Kate and Corey!

Nina and Todd

Nina and Todd got married in the middle of nowhere. I lost cell service 20 minutes before I arrived at Akwissasne in upstate New York. The property is full of history, and the isolation helps make the compound feel even more like a time capsule. Nina and I studied photography together, and I’ve always admired her work. On the wedding day she took tons of (amazing) pictures herself, but I was still feverishly trying to be her eyes for the day. The role was an impossible task, but I loved the process, and I loved the pictures we got. Finally meeting Todd exceeded expectations. I was so familiar with his face it felt a little like meeting a celebrity. These two are perfect for each other. Congratulations, Nina and Todd!

Kelsey and Sahil

I showed up early to Kelsey and Sahil’s backyard wedding in Mansfield, and it was quiet. No one was running around putting finishing touches on anything because everything was done. Kelsey did her own make up and even helped out others with theirs. Everyone was so relaxed (or at least appeared that way). The tone had been set, and the rest of the day was comfortable and playful. I love my job, and I loved this wedding. Congratulations, Kelsey and Sahil!

Anne and Michael

Anne and Michael got married in their Dennis, Mass. backyard. Their relationship has faced long distances and a terminal illness. In spite of this or maybe because of it they have a unique and beautiful relationship. I loved seeing old friends interact and hearing hilarious stories during a touching set of speeches. I loved photographing this wedding. Thank you, Anne and Michael.
