Joy + Scott at Hammond Castle

Joy and Scott had one of the most lovely weddings I’ve had the good fortune of being a part of. When Joy first reached out in February about her elopement I was immediately excited about creating unique wedding imagery for fellow art lovers and costume collectors. Joy is a science fiction writer and a collector of fine art, most recently Kirsty Mitchell’s Wonderland series seen HERE, so we started brainstorming how to pay homage to those things. I referenced an engagement session I shot a few years ago seen HERE, which drew inspiration from René Magritte’s Son of Man, and we knew we had to recreate this with book pages at Hammond Castle (where they had already intended on exchanging vows.) So we spent the morning dismantling a few old books, taking photos around their neighborhood, and eating cupcakes, before heading off to Hammond Castle for their ceremony.

To conclude the celebration Joy and Scott sat down for a private tasting at one of their favorite restaurants in Salem, 62 Restaurant & Wine Bar and departed for Paris a few days later. Thank you so much for including me in your intimate celebration, it was an honor to be a part of.

Jeremy + Josh at the Peabody Essex Museum

Jeremy and Josh kicked off my 2013 season at the Peabody Essex Museum in Salem, and it was awesome! Jeremy’s attention to detail paid off throughout the entire day, but how awesome does their reception look!? I also love a good bow tie and a well fitted suit, looking sharp guys!

Diana + Chris Engaged

If I’ve said it once, I’ve said it one hundred times, I adore engagement sessions in couples homes. Two weeks ago I met up with Diana and Chris in the South End for a little pre-wedding portrait session. We hung out inside, on their roof deck, strolled around the neighborhood, and finally finished up by preparing a favorite dish they picked up in Italy over their engagement last fall.

Also, how adorable is Diana’s mint colored dress with orange accents!? Love.

Marathon Monday

Four years ago I snapped my first photo at the Boston Marathon (seen at the end of this post) and I’ve been captivated ever since. This year however I was not only there to see the incredible endurance of the elite runners, but also to cheer on a good friend, Nancy Gould, who raised over $13,000 for Dana-Farber and cancer research! Her run was unfortunately stopped a few blocks short when tragedy struck, so in light of all of the horrific images we’ve seen, and whatever nonsense is happening in the courthouse right now, here are just a few shots from Monday to remind us all that the Boston Marathon is still one of the greatest sporting events in the world.
