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 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!
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 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.
Earlier the summer I took a couple of trips to Richmond and the D.C. area for No Kid Hungry. You can’t beat working for this organization. The people I get to be around are always inspiring, and their first step to the infinitely complicated problem of inequality is so simple and immediately effective: Breakfast.
Angie and Robert traveled all the way from Puerto Rico to get married at the Chatham Bars Inn. The wedding was pleasantly small and intimate, but the dance floor had as much energy as a wedding twice its size. Such a beautiful day. Congratulations, Angie and Robert!
Ellis loves the summer. I’m a little worried about how he is going to handle winter when his clothes have to go back on. Even though this is my busiest time of year, I’d like to pat myself on the back for working hard and efficiently during business hours while still spending lots of time at the beach with my family. This might be the most pleasantly balanced my life has ever been.
Carolyn and Tom were married at the Popponesset Inn. New Seabury is a special place for Carolyn’s family, and I loved photographing on this little patch of Cape Cod not only because of its beauty but for its significance to Carolyn and Tom. I had so many favorite moments from this wedding day. Congrats, guys!
Did you know that if you bury a bottle of bourbon at your wedding venue it guarantees perfect weather? This southern tradition worked for Elizabeth and Jim at OceanCliff in Newport. Or maybe the universe was just rewarding them for being so darn nice. Regardless, I feel lucky to know these two and wish them the best. Congratulations, guys! And great to run into Meg (Jim’s sister) and Brian. Can’t believe it’s been almost five years since their wedding!
Every wedding is a little different, but the finale of Katie and Ryan’s wedding at the Museum of Science was quite different. I had never seen a couple sign a waiver, apply ear protection and then step inside a large bird cage that would be the only barrier between them and a massive bolt of electricity. I also loved how Katie and Ryan said goodbye to their friends and family and then waited outside for their Uber driver to take them home. Such a great day.
