For Kelly and Sean's engagement shoot, we decided to go to one of their favorite spots in Ipswich - Cedar Point. The weather was perfect and the landscape beautiful; it was worth getting bit by greenheads at the end of shoot. And yes, I'd do it all over again a hundred times! That was a lot of fun, thanks guys; can't wait for next July!
I had a fantastic time documenting Jenn and Stephen's wedding! Both their ceremony and reception were held at the Barn at Gibbet Hill. Many of Stephen's relatives and friends crossed the pond from Ireland to be with them on their wedding day. It was such a fun and lively group; there were some rugby plays, a softball game and even cornhole! This just didn’t feel like work at all; lots of laughs, and fun things to document - they even invited me into a couple of photos…basically adopted me! Too much fun! Deirdre at the Barn did a great job as always and Scott Arrington of Murray Hill Talent, kept things lively on the dance floor. Here are a few samples from their day…
It’s such an honor to have this job, meet so many great people and witness so many great weddings. It’s extra sweet when the client happens to be one of my relatives. When the opportunity arose for me to document my cousin, Stephen’s wedding, I was beyond excited. Not only is he blood, but he happens to be one of the most amazing humans I’ve ever met. And he more than met his match in Anna - an equally kind and humble person who has an incredible warmth about her. The ceremony took place at the Church of the Blessed Sacrament, a grand old church in the upper West Side of NYC, and the reception was at the Botanical Gardens, which is stunning. It seems like every time I’m at the Botanical Gardens, I’m there for a cousin’s wedding. Last time around it was for my cousin Jennifer. Going back for another family wedding just felt right.
It’s been such a pleasure getting to know Megan and Kwame over the past year or so. They both have such a dedication to not only their careers, but equally to each other, all while appreciating the little things in life. I say this all the time - because it’s true - but, the best part of this job is the people you meet! I knew Megan and Kwame’s wedding was going to be fun to document and it was beyond that - such a special day. Mother Nature turned off the rain just in time for their first look. We then headed to the First Congregational Church in Stoneham for their ceremony - the same church Megan's parents were married in a few years back. Later on, friends and family brought such amazing energy to the dance floor. As always, the staff at the Seaport was on point; thank you Alanah for all of your help that day! Thanks for the invite guys and congratulations!
I first met Meredith and Craig back in 2014 when they were in the bridal party at Jenna and Steve's wedding. It was great reconnecting with them. I'm so excited to be working with these guys. We had such a nice day for photos at the Arboretum in Jamaica Plain, and I can't wait for their wedding next year!
