Christine + Dan at the Boston Public Library

I have always adored the Boston Public Library. From the first day Eric and I arrived in Boston 2007, the downtown library became our headquarters for researching our brand new city. We didn’t have internet service, and the iPhone didn’t exist yet (what a world) so as we settled in to our new lives, surrounded by the sites and smells of a ridiculously beautiful building, as we enjoyed some of the comforts of home.

Now 6.5 years later, my studio is just around the corner from where my Boston adventure began, and where Christine and Dan have spent many a night studying in their respective fields. And although Christine and Dan didn’t officially meet in the library (as they’ve put it to me “our spaceships both crashed on the same asteroid (21matchdotcomE6)”) they knew they wanted to incorporate the Library into their wedding day, as they’ve spent much of their adult lives in the courtyard together, as so many Bostonian students have.

Kate + Phil at Stonover Farm

I adore the Berkshires, particularly the Lenox area, so although it’s a bit of a drive from Boston, I made the trek out there one more time last month for Kate and Phil’s wedding extravaganza.

Friday night I met up with everyone for the rehearsal dinner at the Norman Rockwell Museum, just a few highlights are shown here, and on Saturday I had the pleasure of working at Stonover Farm for the first time, an amazing bed and breakfast.

Ashley + Josh at the Apple Tree Inn

Photographing fellow photographers is always an honor, and although one may think it would be more intimidating, especially when both parties are NESOP grads, I actually find it much more relaxed. There is a mutual understanding of the creation process, which in turn allows for more playful imagery. And as an added perk, they make sure you get to eat dinner too, big foam finger fan of that! (That may sound silly, but if you’re a fellow wedding photographer, you know how great that actually is.) So when Ashley and Josh contacted me about their wedding at the Apple Tree Inn, I said sign me up!

They had a short but sweet ceremony overlooking the Berkshires, and a great group of friends from New England, Texas and beyond, to share in their celebration. Thanks for sharing your wedding with me, and for your hospitality!

Rachel + Matt at The Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art

I’ve spent most of June in the Berkshires, which I adore, so I have a lot of amazingness to share, but to kick off my summer in Western Mass, I headed out to The Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art for Rachel and Matt’s fabulous shindig. Rachel and Matt had one of the most creative (and well suited) ceremonies I have ever seen. Storybooks were read from, Willy Wonka’s Pure Imagination was preformed, a ceremonial chocolate bar was shared, and lollypop bouquets decorated the scene.

Rachel and Matt, as well as most of their bridal party, are also avid runners, so we also made a quick stop at Smith College track for some fun portraits.

Thank you for including me in your wedding! I had a blast documenting your uniquely you celebration.

Amanda + Mike at The Barn at Gibbet Hill

I have been quite busy this spring (always a good problem to have) so while ensuring a timely delivery for clients, I have been falling behind on blogging a few fabulous shoots I’ve had recently. So for now, just a few portraits of Amanda and Mike in the ruins at Gibbet Hill.
