Looking Back at 2015

2015 marked my 9th year as a wedding photographer, which means 2016 makes 10, whaaat! That really snuck up on me. As I enter my 10th year, many new and exciting things are on the horizon; I am continuing to expand into fashion photography (more on that soon) and Hawaii is now my secondary location, for both wedding and fashion work.

But before 2016 really kicks in for the year, here is a look back at what 2015 had in store for me. I traveled throughout New England and beyond. I met passionate and interesting people. And I’ve learned a lot (yet again) along the way. So here’s to an even better 2016, and the couples I will have the opportunity to work with in the coming months.

Erin + Eric at Seven Hills Inn

Erin is a filmmaker for the National Park Service (I tried to convince her they need a still photographer as well, obviously) so I was excited when she got in touch about her and Eric’s wedding in the Berkshires. Western Massachusetts is one of my favorite areas for weddings in New England, and is a place close to Erin’s family as well, with their summer cabin just down the road from Lenox.

Seven Hills Inn had an intimate vibe, the reason they chose it to host their family and friends for the weekend, and Tanglewood is just a few minutes away, so we could take advantage of their grounds for portraits as well.

Emily + Joe at the Museum of Science

The Museum of Science was the perfect venue for two engineers to host their ceremony and reception. And speaking of the ceremony, I go to my fair share of events, but Emily and Joe’s unity volcano was even a first for me. (Which was hilariously fantastic.) Here’s to many more baking soda reactions!

Danae + Jason at Laughing Loon

Danae grew up on Lake Winnipesaukee, so although she and Jason now call NYC home, New Hampshire was still the perfect backdrop for their wedding last month. And no lakeside extravaganza would be complete without a grand water entrance. This time provided by the New Hampshire Boat Museum.

Kristen + Noah at Wequassett Resort and Golf Club

From meeting at a Phish concert out of state, to a decked out event at Wequassett Resort, two fabulously fun people came together for a wedding on Cape Cod last month. Kristen also wins for my favorite dress of the season. A simple art deco pattern, in the right fit and fabric, killed it!
