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!
Venue: Groveland Fairways, Goveland MA

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.
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 wedding season is coming to a close here in New Hampshire and it a bitter sweet feeling. I was lucky to spend an amazing Fall day on Lake Winnipesaukee with Lindsey and Nick at Chase House at the Inn at Mill Falls. Just look at this light! It doesn’t get much better than this.
Lindsey and Nick are a sweet couple with a happy road ahead of them. Congratulations guys!!
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!
