For every summer wedding I always pray for a little relief from the heat. The week leading up to Jill and Joe’s wedding was hot, humid and just uncomfortable to be outside. I was checking the weather for their wedding day every few hours once their day got to be in the 10 day forecast. Thankfully, the heat and humidity broke free and their day could not have been any better! With a light breeze and a gorgeous setting, it was absolutely perfect and no one was melting their make up off!
I remember meeting Jill, Joe, Jill’s mom and her maid of honor a year ago at Starbucks. They told me all about the wedding plans thus far and Jill’s sister(MOH), Jamie couldn’t have been any happier for her big sister! We all clicked right away and I felt honored they chose me to be their wedding photographer! They told me all about their proposal and how they really wanted their engagement photos to be taken in that location with the exact proposal setting in the background. You can see their engagement session here.
With simple gold details and a BEAUTIFUL greenery wall that Jill made with the help of her sister, everything looked amazing. I couldn’t get over the tall centerpieces and the flower choices! It matched the venue’s room perfectly! The smile on Jill’s face when she saw the whole day come together was so heart warming, you couldn’t help but to smile if you were around her.
Jill and Joe had their fist look on a beautiful bridge on the grounds of the Indian Pond Country Club. The sun was shinning and their bridal party was close by. The reaction on Joe’s face when he saw his bride for the first time was so sweet. His smile couldn’t have gotten any bigger! The two of them were beaming with happiness! After they had some time together for their first look, we had bridal party portraits which is always so fun. Their bridal party was a good time and they took my directions like champs!
The dance floor was packed and I had several guests come up to me and thank me for capturing these moments and compliment me! I was so flattered! They made my night!
Jill and Joe, Thank you for having Lisa and I there to document your love story and celebrate with you. It was a beautiful day and we had so much fun! I hope you love your sneak peek and are having the best time on your honeymoon!

I met Meggy and Andrew for their “Fall” Engagement session
at Scusset Beach in Sagamore, MA. It was early November BUT it was FREEZING! I had hand warmers for each of us incase we all needed it and I was bundled up in a jacket! These guys were so amazing for that session, and now I can say that they were also SO amazing for their wedding day!!!
The wedding day was perfect! A cool spring day where hand warmers were not needed! **Insert praising hand emoji here** Their ceremony was held at St. Bonaventure
in Plymouth, MA and it was absolutely beautiful. The light that came in through the windows made my heart skip a beat! It was amazing how bright inside was! I loved watching Andrew’s reaction the first time he saw Meggy walking down the aisle and seeing her face just light up to brightly! It was a beautiful moment and there wasn’t a dry eye in the room!
After their ceremony, we headed over to Whitehorse Beach
for their bridal party and family photos and then from there it was off to Plymouth Country Club for a night of dancing! I am not kidding when I saw the dance floor was PACKED! Their DJ – Meritage Entertainment
was awesome! He knew how to get the party started! I even busted some moves! haha! I love getting to interact with the family and bridal parties at every wedding! This crew was a dream crew and I had so much fun with them! They were up for anything and everyone was just so happy, the laughter was just pouring out of them all! They made my job so easy! I just love them!
Meggy and Andrew, Thank you so much for trusting me to capture your wedding day! I am so honored to have been there to witness such beautiful love you both share for each other as well as those around you on your wedding day! I had so much fun during your freezing engagement session that I knew this day was going to be a blast, and I was so right! Your smiles were contagious and I think most of the day, my cheeks were hurting from smiling so much!! It was so great getting to come back to “home” just shortly after we moved to NH and I am so thrilled that it was your wedding that brought me back to Plymouth this day! Congratulations and Best Wishes ALWAYS! Love you both!
Here are just a few of my favorite images!
Having sessions in the dead of winter can be scary for many photographers and it raises a few red flags like: a.) It could be FREEZING! b.) The weather could not want to work with us that day and it could be extremely windy. c.) not having a lot of color to pop the image and bring your eye in! So, knowing that Jocelyn and Angel were having a spring wedding in May of 2018, we knew they wanted to have a winter engagement session in hopes that there would be snow on the ground. Well, I knew their winter engagement session was going to be so beautiful but what I wasn’t sure of was if I could make that promise that there would be snow on the ground…
Three days before their session we had our 4th Nor-Easter in New England which caused quite a bit of snow! I checked in with Jocelyn and we exchanged our snowy excitement through email a few times as we prepared for their engagement session! It was really going to be her wish come true, with snow on the ground for their engagement session! The location they picked was absolutely beautiful- The Governor Oliver Ames Estate in Easton, MA. We had so many different areas we were able to walk around and explore, the sun was out on the way but was hidden behind a cloud up until the very end, leaving us with a beautiful glow!
Jocelyn and Angel, Thank you so much for braving the cold with me! With snow on the ground, light wind and an amazing setting I hope these photos are everything you wanted and MORE! I am so excited to see you both all dressed up on your wedding day in just about 2 months! Your winter engagement session was simply perfect and it was really hard for me to choose just a few favorites to share!
