Courtney + Richard at Linden Place

Courtney and Richard were legally married last year in France (where Richard is from) but they wanted to share their nuptials with family and friends in the U.S., so came wedding part two! They celebrated with dinner and dancing at Linden Place, a charming house/venue, on a delightful August evening.

Holly + David on Cape Cod

Holly and David held an intimate ceremony for just their immediate family at their home in Chatham. And although 100% chance of rain was forecasted for most of the time we would spend together, the wedding gods gave us a break for an hour, just before the ceremony was to begin. Truth be told, I actually prefer the beach on a rainy day (being Irish probably has a lot to do with that) but there is just something about dark skies, hooded sweatshirts, and the ocean, that all feels very New England.

Karen + Brian at the Cohasset Harbor Inn

I joined Karen and Brian for both their rehearsal and wedding two weeks ago, on the South Shore of Boston. As water lovers, they knew they wanted to take advantage of a location close to home, but also one that offered indoor/outdoor water views. The Cohasset Harbor Inn, and Atlantica (where they held their rehearsal dinner) offered just that, for a perfect July evening on the Atlantic.

Ashley + Mark at Smith & Wollensky

Ashley and Mark had one of the most unique weddings I’ve had the opportunity to be a part of. First of all, they had a SURPRISE wedding! 30 of their closet family members and friends were invited to a “party” at Smith & Wollensky, nothing more, nothing less, but approximately 45 minutes into cocktail hour, Ashley snuck away to change into a wedding dress. Most, if not all, of the guests saw it coming, but the confirmation still brought a smile to everyone’s face, and I loved being in on the secret!

Their favorite four piece band from New Orleans, Fritzel’s New Orleans Jazz Band, also joined in on the festivities, and kept the crowd on their feet throughout the night. Mark and his kids are no novices in the music department either, music filled the night with original songs dedicated to the couple, covers of current favorites, and a clarinet duo by Mark and his daughter.

Finally, I joined Ashley and Mark at their new home (but more accurately) on their beautiful sailboat Hope, for a portrait session and sunset sail around Wings Cove, near the Cape. Seriously, could my job be any cooler!? Thanks for sharing such a neat experience with me!

Hawaii Wedding Photographer

Although based in Boston, and raised in the Midwest, I grew up around Hawaiian culture, both on the islands and back home in Wisconsin. My dad was one of the whitest Irish men you would have ever met, but he fell in love with Polynesian culture back in the early 80s, even teaching himself much of the Hawaiian language through song (he was a killer singer and performer.) So my parents (a used car salesman and a factory worker) would scrimp and save everyday so we could spend as much time on the islands as possible, and for these experiences, I am forever grateful.

Now as an adult, I have returned with my husband Eric a few times (my heart still belongs to the Pacific) and as much as we love Boston, we’re hoping to slowly begin a transition to the islands, while still maintaining a home base on the East Coast. So here’s where you come in! Are you, or do you know someone getting married on the islands in the next year or two? If so, please send them my way, as I am waiving all travel expenses (a huge savings) for the first few weddings I book.

Mahalo!
