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!

Diana + Chris at Mount Hope Farm

This season I’ve been covering a few rehearsal dinners, in addition to the wedding day, so when Diana told me they would be hosting their dinner in a Chinese tea house, I was pumped! And that was before I knew they would bring some of the most stunning skies, and a rainbow for their wedding weekend. Just a few of those details are shown here.

Come wedding day at Mount Hope Farm (which is amazing) I was fortunate to work with my partner in crime, Keith of Maple Loft Studios (if you’re looking for a videographer, hire him!) We had an abundance of stunning light, fabulously fun people, and really wonderful families to work with. Thanks for sharing your wedding weekend with me!

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!
