Groveland Fairways and Newburyport MA: Shannon & Jamie

Groveland Fairways and Newburyport MA: Shannon & Jamie

I continue to be amazed by the beauty of the couples and their families that I get to photograph. It is truly a gift to me to get to know couples like Shannon and Jamie. Shannon and Jamie are kind, easy-going, fun and caring. In addition to all these wonderful characteristics, they had a wedding that celebrated and honored family.

To me, weddings are about family. The family we are born to and the friends we adopt as family along the way. Weddings are a celebration of life, where we’ve come from and where we hope to go. This wedding was all of those things.

Both John (my fav. second photographer) and I found ourselves fighting back tears throughout the day and night: When Shannon gave Jamie a piece of his late mother’s jewelry; When Jamie signed his toast to his deaf in-laws. We were in the presence of true beauty, and true beauty, is so rare and so special. I hope Shannon and Jamie stay beautiful forever!

The Year in Review

The Year in Review

The end of the year is always a little bitter sweet for me. I welcome the break from weddings every weekend and yet I miss weddings every weekend. Photographing weddings is a lot of work…but it also offers a lot of joy. I’m extremely grateful to have such a wonderful job and I already look forward to next season.

Below is a quick collection of some of this year’s favorite moments for me.  I owe my clients a huge thank you for having me as your wedding photographer.  Obviously, I couldn’t do this without you, so thanks!

I hope everyone cherishes the time with their families this holiday season. Family is so precious.

Happy Holidays!

The Year in Review!

 

The Boston University Castle | Sarah & Alicia

The Boston University Castle | Sarah & Alicia

I welcome the excuse to spend a day in Boston and a wedding is a great excuse. I grew up in Brookline so I know the area pretty well, but I had no idea Boston University had a castle on their campus.

Sarah and Alicia had an amazing ceremony, officiated by a young and vibrant Unitarian Universalist minister. Sarah and Alicia are an adventurous couple who are looking at marriage as their next adventure.

I truly wish these two the best!!

The Inn on Newfound Lake | Britney & John

There is nothing like a Fall wedding in New England. Britney and John had a wonderful October wedding at The Family Worship Center in Plymouth with their reception at The Inn on Newfound Lake. To call this a perfect day, would be selling it short. And this was a couple who deserved beautiful weather. It is a pleasure to photograph a couple as kind and giving as this one. During their ceremony after exchanging their vows, they each visited the others parents and offered a vow to them as well.  Very unique and extremely touching.

Congratulations Britney & John!
