Julia & Dave // Boston, MA // July 2014

Julia and Dave are getting married next month, but they really wanted the chance to get some photographs of their favourite places in Boston. I love when people choose locations for their engagement photos that carry meaning with them. Don’t get me wrong, destination engagement shoots are beautiful, but when people know and love a space, there is a comfort and joy that exists unlike a new exotic place. Julia was kind enough to share with me why we went to these three different locations:

Boston Public Gardens – This is where we got engaged in May of last year. Dave sat under the willow tree and called me on my way out of a meeting nearby to come meet him in the park (he said he had cheese and crackers waiting…it was an odd statement so I was instantly suspicious). Sweet things were said, a question was asked, and a lovely ring appeared :)

South End/54 Montgomery Street – Dave moved into 54 first and I joined him shortly after. The house is owned by an absolutely wonderful woman named Kathe who helped start Haley House. Living at 54 was like living in one big house with a bunch of friends (and a few strangers since the first 2 floors were part of a bed and breakfast). On the day that we found out that Dave got into residency in orthopedic surgery (his dream!) we celebrated with champagne and friends on our front stoop. It was one of the best days ever!

JP/18 Seaverns – This year has clearly been filled with many blessings and good things – like buying a house! Dave’s prerequisites were that the house be close to Centre Street and close to JP Licks, while mine were that the house be full of light and an old historic building. We both got what we wanted because the house was built in 1845 (and is full of light all day long) and you could literally crawl to JP Licks :)

It was so much fun getting to hang out with these two and I am SO EXCITED for their wedding up in Maine next month.

Priya & Brendan // Boston College // July 2014

Priya is one of my oldest friends on the planet. She’s one of the smartest, spunkiest, driven and thoughtful humans I’ve ever met. We’ve known each other since our glory days of middle school, and through all of life’s twists and turns it’s crazy that we’re both still in the same city. I’ve had the pleasure of getting to know Brendan and watch their love develop and deepen over these past 5 years. He has the greatest wit and biggest heart and I am so incredibly excited for these two. They met each other while at Boston College undergrad and both went on to BC Law, so as you can imagine, the campus carries a lot of meaning and memories for them. We had a great time running around to some of their favourite spots. Enjoy!

Congrats you two :) Cannot wait to celebrate with you in May!

Priscilla & Aaron // Weston, MA // July 5, 2014

Priscilla and Aaron are simply two of the sweetest people on the face of the planet. It has been decided. I had the chance to meet them and take their engagement photos last summer, and I knew right then that these two are the kind of people that you just love to be around. Their deep kindness and generosity is so abundant and you can feel it tangibly when they’re near. It was no surprise then that their wedding over July 4th weekend was one of the most beautiful I have ever had the chance to photograph. Not only did we get to enjoy shooting right in the heart of Copley Square, but their reception at Tower Hill Botanical Gardens was easily one of the most gorgeous I have seen in the six years of shooting weddings. It was a photographer’s heaven. Everyone was so full of joy and excitement and it made for some of the easiest photographs. Enjoy some from the day below:

Priscilla & Aaron — thank you both so so much for having there to document your extraordinary day. Look forward to hopefully seeing you both again soon!

Charlene & Mike // Boston, MA // June 28, 2014

Charlene and Mike did the impossible – they hired me for a maternity session.

I’m being a bit dramatic, but I have turned down people over the years who’ve asked to photograph a maternity shoot before, mostly because a lot of maternity sessions I’ve seen on various news feeds is not my style and as a part-time photographer, I get to be a little more selective with the work I take on. I’ve known Mike for years through our church, and they actually hired me via a fundraiser, so I didn’t quite have the ability to clarify the exact kind of shoot it would be. That said, the session with Charlene and Mike was simply fantastic. It really couldn’t have been a more beautiful day and the two of them are just easy, funny and wonderful people to be with. Plus they were very graceful in allowing me to shoot how I’d like, and not worry about how the photos came out. They didn’t want the more tradition photographs and were happy to just some beautiful photos of them together. Their little daughter is coming quite soon, and I can’t wait to meet her. Congrats Charlene & Mike!

Soccer Nights // Cambridge, MA // June 2014

Last week I once again got to visit Soccer Nights in Cambridge, MA. Always such an incredible week for kids, volunteers and soccer – you should really check it out if you like any of those three things, as there are sites all around Boston and they could probably use you as a volunteer.

The Kaczmorski’s // Winston-Salem, NC // June 2014

My sister had her second little nugget a few weeks ago, and last weekend I went down to meet Ms Emma Paige Kaczmorski. I have the most extraordinary honor of being one of Emma’s Godparents, and it was so incredible to meet the newest addition to our family. My sister’s family is all incredibly gorgeous, so please try not to be too jealous… but here are a few photos I took when I visited. (If you’re curious for some more photos of Bryn over the past year and 1/2, check out my Portraiture stream).

Natalie & Scott // Ipswich, MA // June 15, 2014

Natalie and Scott got married on the absolutely perfect New England June day. It was the kind of day people dream of their whole lives. And not only was the day beautiful, the details beautiful, the venues beautiful, but the moments and love displayed throughout the day were beautiful. I took Natalie and Scott’s engagement photos back in January, and it was wonderful to get to spend more time with these two. Both Natalie and Scott are so great to be with and were incredibly thoughtful and caring to everyone around them. It was a tremendous honor to be there photographing, and I’m excited to share some photos from the day. Enjoy!

Natalie & Scott – thank you both so much for having us, what a wonderful day to be able to take part in :)
