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 :)

Biltmore House // June 2014

 

Tia & Manny // Wenham, MA // May 31, 2014

Manny and I got to know each other a bit back during our college days, and I actually had the chance to shoot a speaking event he did way back when I was first starting to explore photography. It was pretty awesome then that he had his wedding ceremony in the stunning Philips Hall at Gordon College, making it come full circle to shoot Manny again back on our old campus. This was my first time meeting Tia, and the energy that these two have together, how they feed off one another, and just pour love into all those around them was just inspiring to witness. It was such a beautiful day from start to finish and I was so blessed to be there to photograph. Enjoy some highlights below.

Thanks Tia & Manny for having me there to document your day!
