Evelyn + John’s Backyard Wedding

I was honored to be included in Evelyn and John’s backyard shindig at the end of May. They have been together for 15 years, and engaged for 8, so this spring they wanted to make it official. Along with a small group of their family and friends, and some Chinese takeout in the yard, they did just that.

This was a true DIY affair. Evelyn thrifted all of the table decor and decorations, and set up that morning with her family. No small feat, even when you’re trying to keep a celebration casual. And in true Chinese takeout fashion, they invited their guests to crack open a fortune cookie to end the meal.

Michelle + Steve at Belle Mer

At every wedding a unique element stands out to me, and in the case of Michelle and Steve’s wedding, they brought the dance party. A floor littered with dollar bills is usually an indicator of a good night, and this was no exception to the rule. Thanks for a fabulous season opener guys, let the games begin!

Katie + Julian Engaged

Sheep, horses and cows, oh my! Julian’s family have been California ranchers for generations, so what better place to photograph their engagement session, than where Julian grew up. Not to mention it’s some of the most beautiful land I’ve seen.

A one week old lamb made an appearance as well ( just in time for Easter) and couldn’t have been a better animal model. Such a content little newborn.

Featured Work as seen in Bliss Celebrations

Once again I had the honor of photographing an editorial for Bliss Celebrations, this time at Elm Bank in Wellesley. Designed by Erica Powell and the Reverie Gallery, this shoot couldn’t have been a better fit for me. I mean just look at those colors!

Sayles Livingston killed it on the flowers, creating a stunning table runner, mantel piece, bridal bouquet, and floral crown. And no garden party (let alone any space) would be complete without furnishings and lighting, both of which were styled by New England Country Rentals and Ryan Designs. Because when a chandelier ends up in the woods, you know some effort went into that!

MAX Ultimate Food, as well as The Artisan Bake Shop brought edible beauty to the party, and The Plumed Serpent Bridal brought the fashion.

Looking Back at 2014

It has been one heck of a year! 17,587 images have been delivered to wedding clients alone, shot all across New England, in an array of locations. I’ve photographed couples on boats, in cities, and on beaches, vineyards and farms, so it’s hard to sum up everything I’ve seen in a year (missing still are the editorials and fashion I worked on, portraits and engagement sessions, and the personal adventures I’ve taken.) But nevertheless, here is a small sampling of what my eyeballs saw in 2014.
