Oh this beautiful wedding day!! What a light blue and beach lovers dream! ( I am talking about me… I am the light blue and beach lover)! I met Jenny and Steve just about a year ago as we got together for their engagement session back at their school campus. You can see those photos here. She has a smile that is 100% contagious and one that when you see a photo of her, you will never forget it! She beams with so much joy and love that it is no wonder that everyone just smiles as she enters a room!
Jenny and Steve planned their original wedding for December 5, 2020 but the year brought them other plans. They decided to move their original wedding date to December 4, 2021 and have a small elopement ceremony on September 26, 2020. This minimony was held at Jenny’s Nana’s house located right on the beach. Their ceremony was on the front lawn that over looked the ocean. It was absolutely perfect. They had the most amazing September weather and who does not love being near the ocean water?! I want to go back and visit Nana and enjoy the view again soon! 🙂
Jenny and Steve, THANK YOU so much for trusting me to capture this day! I am so excited to share these photos with you and I am looking forward to all the wintery goodness I get to capture in 2021. Enjoy reliving your first wedding day together as you decorate your new home! What an amazing month for you guys! New home. A Wedding! Congratulations!! I love you guys! xoxo
It’s the wedding we all have been waiting for!! No really, it is! Alyssa and Craig’s original wedding date was April 4, 2020. Just two weeks before their wedding day the country shut down and all events were cancelled. I remember listening to the news and thinking “oh no… I have a wedding!!! I am supposed to talk to the bride and groom about their timeline in a few days!!” Right away I received an email from Alyssa and we chatted on the phone shortly after. Was this really happening? HOW could this be happening right now? There were so many questions and devastation that the event that they had been planning for now needed to be moved.
The new date was June 25, 2020. Praying that things were changing and events in MA were allowed again this is what we were all planning on…. then things did not change… and new rules were being put in place…. so they changed the date.
THIRD TIMES A CHARM! Alyssa and Craig were married on a PERFECT September day! September 19, 2020 is their final date! While the rules were all still different than a year ago, they are married and it was such a happy day! The River Club did a wonderful job making sure everyone there was safe! They all wore masks and shields while working near the guests outside as well as inside preparing meals. Guests were also wearing masks while walking around the venue. It was so nice to see everyone having fun and being mindful of what is going on in the world. Alyssa and Craig provided hand sanitizer and masks made by the mother of the bride as their wedding favors which if you know me, you know I love practical favors and this one is on the list of favors I loved!
Alyssa and Craig, I know this was not the original plans you had in mind when you got engaged, but I have to say, you both were so amazing changing plans left and right and keeping me in the loop about it all. I can not imagine planning for “3” weddings and the stress that you guys had during this time. You are rockstars! Thank you so much for choosing me to be your photographer. I loved getting to know you and Stonewall at your engagement session and I am so thankful for all the communication the last 6 months. Thank you for trusting me to capture your wedding day. Danielle and I had the best time and it was so nice to meet your friends and family! Wishing you HEALTH and Happiness always! Here are some of my favorites from your wedding day! Have fun reliving this day. It really was perfect. xoxo.

Within a few minutes of walking up to a couple I can always tell we are truly a good fit. This is 100% true with Amy and Nick. They were relaxed and excited to start their session. When I say relaxed I mean they were ready to trust me as I educated them through out their session on the main poses they will do on their wedding day. They were up for anything and were really wanting to have many candid moments of the two of them together, which just so happens to be my favorite moments!
These guys traveled to Boston from NOLA during a pandemic to have their engagement photos taken in Boston. I noticed them as they were walking across the street to meet me at the Public Gardens. As I mentioned before, they were both so relaxed and looked so nice as their outfits coordinated so nicely! That first initial meeting its like a blind date- I always look for happy in love couples that are most likely going to get their photos taken and these two were exactly that. Happy and in love.
Amy and Nick are Umass Amherst Alumni and are now planning their wedding at the Saphire Estate in Sharon,MA Summer of 2021. While they were back visiting they got to see family and friends too which if you ask me, getting photos taken and getting to see loved ones sounds like a pretty perfect get away!
Amy and Nick, thank you so much for trusting me and listening to my crazy ideas of how to get to the locations you guys wanted before the sun came down. You were both amazing models and since you guys nailed it during our session, I have no doubt in my mind that you guys will nail it again on the wedding day! I hope you love these photos and can remember this time together visiting your family and friends and meeting me! The way you too look at one another is pure love and I am so happy for you both. Enjoy the next months of being engaged and I can not wait to see you again on your wedding day! xoxo.
Sessions like these just MELT MY SOUL! This family was so much fun to be around, I did not want our session to end! The kids, Benjamin and Sophie were the sweetest things who were so happy to have their photos taken! Little Benjamin had some great ideas on where to stand and what shots to get. He was a great helper! Sophie had just celebrated her 3rd birthday the day before our session so I was thrilled to capture her 3 year old photos for mom and dad. She was not wanting to be in the photos alone, but she was so happy to have mom and dad with her for most of her birthday photos!
Now. if you know me, you guys all know I love love love details! Hannah asked me to capture something very important to her during our session that made me tear up. You see, she is wearing 3 rings on her finger. Each ring represents her babies. The baby that is due in October is their rainbow baby but she wears these rings because even though one baby is not physically with her, they are with her in spirit and she always wants to have them near. The rings have Benjamin and Sophie’s name on them, a due date from baby #3 and once this little bundle arrives, she will add on another ring. Isn’t this the sweetest thing?! I just love it so much and I am so happy she told me about this so that I could capture these precious memories for her.
So, I bet you wanna know what they are having…. I do too! But! We will have to wait! Hannah and Robert decided that since they found out the gender for their first 2 kiddos, they want to be surprised for this new baby. When they told me this, as much as I want to know, I appreciated this decision as this is what we did for Ethan and Henry! The surprise of finding out the gender the day you meet them is such a gift and THE BEST surprise! I for sure thought that Henry was a girl and when they said he was a boy I was shocked but still so amazing and so happy. Whoever this little one is, I pray that he or she is healthy and safe and that they give mom an easy and “pain free” (if it can be pain free) delivery.
Hannah, Robert, Benjamin and Sophie, thank you so much for spending the night with me, making me laugh and caputre all these amazing moments of your family before your littlest is here. It is so amazing to see the love you all have for one another and when you look at these photos, you will see just that coming from everyone. So. Much. Love! I am so excited to meet your newest baby and I hope that you can treasure these next few weeks together as a family of 4 before you are a family of 5! I can not wait to see you all again! Here are some of my favorites from our session together. I hope you love these as much as I do! xoxo.
I may be biased, but I think Labor Day weekend is THE BEST weekend to have a wedding…. The reason why I think this….?? PJ and I were married on Labor Day Weekend in 2010! While our wedding day was 9/4/10, Elias and Jackie exchanged their vows 9/5/20. (Ethan’s Birthday!) Gah, Labor Day Weekend is one of my favorite weekends ever!
Elias and Jackie celebrated the most beautiful intimate wedding in Plymouth MA on September 5, 2020. Joined with Jackie’s immediate family, a total of 6 people (9 including myself and the bride and groom) They were married by Jackie’s brother who officiated their ceremony and had their first kiss as husband and wife on the deck of the family’s home.
When I arrived to the house in Plymouth on this absolute beautiful summer day, I could not help but love every little thing in their home. Jackie’s mom did a beautiful job decorating their entire home to have similar colors in each room. (My fav. TEAL!) I must have taken so many photos of details from inside this adorable home, if they were ever planning to sell, they could 100% use the images I took for real estate photos. I need her mom to come over and decorate my house! She has such a welcoming way of decorating every room!
After their ceremony, Elias and Jackie chose to go off site for their portraits. We went to Ellisville State Park in Plymouth which was the perfect location for them! They were hoping to have photos taken in a natural setting- not one where things were purposely landscaped, man made and busy. This location is a short hiking trail to the beach but we just stayed on the path as the lighting was amazing and no one wants to hike 10mins to a beach in Badgley Mischka heels! I am so happy with these portraits of them. We did these in the afternoon where it is not quite sunset, but I was able to defuse the light through the trees to give them that sunset glow. Getting to meet the family and then stealing them away for portraits are two of my favorite parts from this day.
Elias and Jackie, Thank you! Thank you for keeping in touch throughout your planning as this year was not what we all expected! Thank you for trusting me to capture your special day! You have planned the most beautiful intimate ceremony and it is so special that you captured it on video to share with your friends and family who were not able to attend. I hope that you are able to continue your plans of having a ceremony in TX and Canada as you were originally planning before Covid started but know that if that is not something that will happen any time soon, you can share these photos with your friends and family and share your story so that they can all feel like they were with you. I hope you enjoy looking back at these photos and love them as much as I do. Here are just a few favorites of mine from your wedding day. xoxo
