Sean + Brittney Wedding Day | The Sea Crest Beach Hotel Wedding VENUE

Sean + Brittney Wedding Day | The Sea Crest Beach Hotel Wedding VENUE

This day started with a super big hug, lots of squeals, tears and “oh my goodness I can not believe how fast that year went!” It seems like we were just in Boston for Sean and Brittney’s engagement session at the Boston Seaport. I spent their engagement session getting to know them and hearing about how they met and how crazy it was that they both lived in the same town but never knew each other until meeting on a mission trip through church in 2012. Planning a wedding while deployed is hard work but they did it, and my goodness it was BEAUTIFUL! Brittney shared a guest blog post for me a few months ago, giving tips for how to plan a wedding when deployed and one of you is on the other side of the world. You can see that helpful blog post HERE!

Brittney’s bridesmaids and family were so incredibly sweet. I honestly felt so undeserving of the compliments they gave us throughout the day. They were so kind, inclusive and encouraging….  just like Brittney.  It’s no wonder they are all such great friends and close family members! The reactions her bridesmaids had when they saw her walk out in her dress was just the sweetest thing and one of my favorite moments from the day. During Brittney dancing with her dad, her mom and sisters stood watching all together, crying, smiling, laughing and then they all were on the dance floor together for the end of the song. It was so special, and you can just feel the love in the room all night.

Brittney and Sean’s wedding ended my 2019 season! It was a chilly day with some wind coming off of the ocean but the sun was shining and they decided they wanted as many photos as we could have outside, which I was so excited about! The venue, The Sea Crest is so beautiful and the way the light was hitting the ocean, I was happy they wanted to be outside. You can not tell how cold they were in their portraits, and from when I use to teach color guard, and it was cold, I kept telling them “you’re on the beach, its a sunny day….” and I wasn’t kidding…

This wedding post is the LAST ONE of 2019! I have a few other blogs planned but as for weddings, I couldn’t think of a more perfect couple to end with than these two. Sean and Brittney, I love you both! Your day was a dream and it was such a privilege to be the ones there to capture it!!  Thank you for allowing us to be there!!! I can’t wait to share my favorites! Enjoy this visual story of your amazing fall beach wedding day!! xoxo

 

can we just talk about this reaction! I can not even handle it! So sweet!

Big Moose Inn Wedding Venue | Liz and Raffa

Big Moose Inn Wedding Venue | Liz and Raffa

I knew that I loved Liz and Raffa from their engagement session. You could tell that they are in love and care so deeply for one another. But I have to tell you, their love for one another was NEVER so evident as it was on their wedding day. From their first look, it was hard for them to hold back the tears. They cried and smiled and looked at each other with so much love and happiness throughout our portraits, through the ceremony and even more so on the dance floor. It was the sweetest thing to see them both so overcome with emotion and happiness. I am so honored I was able to document that for them.

Their day was PERFECT! Earlier that day, it rained but when it was time for their first look, the rain subsided and we were able to have all their portraits and their ceremony outside!! I’m so thankful for clients who care about their portraits! We had so much time for their family portraits, wedding party and their bride and groom portraits. They were open to any of the locations that we suggested and for their second half of portraits, they were all for our suggestions and a little bit or sun came out over the mountain giving us enough light to capture beautiful portraits on the lake with the mountain backdrop and I’m SO glad that we did!!! Just wait until you see them!

Liz and Raffa, thank you so much for trusting me to capture your wedding day! It was so nice to get to meet your family and friends! You guys have such beautiful families it was an honor to be the ones capturing these memories of the day!!! I love you both and I can not wait for you to see these photos!

Well, I can barely contain my excitement today! I am sharing a blog from a wedding that was shot over the weekend and I am just absolutely smitten over the couple, their friends and family and these photos! I am not kidding when I say that there are over 6000 photos to go through and over 250 that I chose for this blog! Really, I just want to share them all with you!

Late July weddings are known to be hot, and Samantha and Buddy’s day was no exception. It was a warm summer day for a lake side New Hampshire wedding but it was all just so beautiful. Their location was adorable! I love little Inn styled weddings! The Inn on Newfound Lake had a lot of charm to it and as soon as you walk in you feel right at home. Everything was in one place making it keep to our timeline perfectly.

One of my favorite moments on a wedding day is when I get to bring the bride and groom back out for a few more portraits as the sun is setting. Samantha and Buddy decided they wanted to join me on this and man, was the sun set just beautiful over the lake. A few people who were passing by to get on their boat invited us on to get a better view of it. It was hysterical, 2 photographers, a bride and groom, a bridesmaid and the best man all hopped aboard. We loved every minute of our little sun set boat ride and I know that it is something we all will never forget!

Samantha and Buddy, I hope you are having the best time on your honeymoon! Thank you so much for trusting me to capture your wedding day. I had the best time meeting your sweet friends and family and I just loved making so many memories and being a part of all your new memories from your wedding day. Here are just oh you know… about 200 favorites of mine…. I hope you enjoy reliving your wedding day through your photographers perspective. Congratulations! We couldn’t be more excited for you! xo.

About Us

My photographic style is light, romantic, airy and, above all, authentic. I believe photography is about so much more than just images, and I strive to tell stories, frame by frame. I want everyone who looks at my work to feel fully immersed in the scene – because there is far more to a moment than what we see.

Arnold Arboretum of Harvard University Engagement Session | Stephanie & Daniel

Arnold Arboretum of Harvard University Engagement Session | Stephanie & Daniel

I feel like I am destined to shoot photos sessions on over cast days! I mean, I set up sessions with my couples and families MONTHS in advance. I always set them up for really, whatever time works best for you, but I always suggest 2 hours before sun set. I feel like more often than not, we have clouds during out sessions more so than sun. Guess what…I am 100% fine with that!

I am able to shoot my sessions in the sun, at sun set, sun rise and even those over cast days. I know everyone usually wants that high sun peek glow but you do not need to stress if it happens to be the day of your session and the sun is not out for most of it. I got you.

Stephanie and Daniel’s engagement session started out overcast. At times we had some cloud movement and we did get some of the sunny sun set glow, but for the most part, its was a cloudy overcast perfect session and I loved every minute with them!

Stephanie and Daniel are High School Sweethearts! I have had a few couples who have been together since High School and it is just the sweetest thing! They brought their fur babies with them and I got to meet Stephanie’s MOH, her sister Emily! They were all so nice and I loved getting to know them! Their pups, Griffin and Sadie were so cute and loved getting their photos taken too! I can not wait to see them all again for their winter wedding next year at the Pavillion at Pinehills! xo.
