Janice + Rich at Smith & Wollensky

Janice and Rich have one of my favorite how we met stories. A few examples I hear quite often are, we met at work, we met online, we met through a friend, etc. Janice and Rich however met in the meat department at Stop & Shop on a Saturday night, that’s straight out of the 1950s! And what better place to host their wedding reception than at a steak house.

I rarely photograph weddings in Boston, despite working in my Newbury Street studio every weekday (I adore the Berkshires) but I do love a good restaurant wedding. And although I no longer eat meat, Smith & Wollensky’s has a warmth and charm a hotel ballroom just can’t compete with.

Thank you for including me in your wedding day Janice and Rich, I am so honored you worked around my schedule!

Stacy + Pat at East Over Farm

Part two of my Labor Day weekend celebrations, Stacy and Pat at East Over Farm!

The annoyingly talented Ben Schaefer joined me this time, whose images are shown here along with mine, and although the skies threatened rain all day, luckily the downpour slowed, the grasses dried, and everyone frolicked happily through the fields of East Over Farm.

Rebecca + Brian at Belle Mer

Rebecca and Brian kicked off my Labor Day double header weekend with a special guest appearance from my friend, and photographer extraordinaire, Channing Johnson, whose images are shown here along with mine. As a self proclaimed photo ninja, I shoot 99% of my weddings alone, my stealthy ways benefit from flying solo, but when I have the occasional opportunity to work with friend, it shakes up the routine, which is both fun and a good learning experience. This was also my first time working at Belle Mer, a beautifully clean white indoor/outdoor space on the waters of Newport, RI.

Flower Magazine Feature

A fun little feature I forgot all about showed up on my doorstep yesterday afternoon. Erin and Jay’s fabulously fun wedding at Jonathan Edwards Winery (which you can check out HERE in case you missed it last October) was just featured in the Fall issue of Flower Magazine.

Check out all that pretty (in poorly scanned) print.

Katie + Andy at the Darrow School

A few weeks back I spent the weekend in Upstate New York for the wedding of two incredibly fabulous people. I knew immediately when we connected via Skype for our initial consult, as Andy was popping bonbons, we were a match! Fast forward 7 months, and I was on my way to New York. Immediately upon turning onto the final road to the school I came across acres and acres of lavender fields. I thought to myself, amazing, but will they be up for it? These are four foot high fields, no paths whatsoever, potholes, and who knows what else, can I convince a bride in a big white dress to wade through the fields with a smile on her face? Sure enough, Katie said, I’m only going to wear this dress once! Which excited me even more, and made for some stunning portraits.

Thanks so much for having me guys, if you could get married every weekend I would be a happy camper!
