Rebecca & Brendan's Vintage Glam Wedding at Gibbet Hill

Another year and another crazy wedding season is coming to an end…and what a better way to end but on a wedding filled with the most wonderful people. We have been around this family starting first with a proposal in 2013, which turned into an invaluable friendship as well as a flooding of referrals. At the point when Brendan had proposed to Rebecca, it felt so familiar that we forgot we were working and instead were laughing, crying and immersed in the love of this perfect couple along with everyone else!

Becca really got every detail down with this gorgeous wedding, the flowers were insanely beautiful, the vintage inspired beaded gown, the meticulously coordinated suits, the ceremony arbor, table settings, ambiance…you get the idea! It was all magnificent!!!

All of those incredible details couldn’t even distract from the love and laughter from this couple! The ease between them is so effortless and watching them together is all consuming. It’s a rom-com unfolding right in front of your eyes!

With both the bride and groom surrounded with their loving friends and family, they got ready for their first look. The rain wasn’t going to derail their first look plans, they were determined to have their moment! As Brendan waited for his bride, his smile was ear to ear. Becca came toward him looking like she walked right out of a bridal magazine.

Beacon Hill Engagement with Sheevani and Zach

I loved this incredibly beautiful and glamourous shoot with Sheevani and Zach starting at the Liberty Hotel. We then made it over to Beacon Hill and found some fun spots including this fantastic alleyway.

Here are a few sneak peeks as well as a few word about their story from the couple!

Boston Engagement Photography -1.jpg

How did you two meet?

We met in Boston while attending law school. We were both spending our first year in Boston as 1L students (Zach is from Colorado, and I am from New Jersey). We were in all the same classes, but never spoke to each other. we always knew of each other, but never paid any mind to the other. It wasn’t until the end of our first year when all the 1Ls were out celebrating the end of the first year of law school that we finally had a conversation. That was when I walked up to him and made fun of his mustache. And then, the rest was history!

Boston Engagement Photography -2.jpg

Tell us the proposal story~


Zach’s parents were in town that weekend. The day of the proposal, I refused to do my nails. It was the first (and only) time I had ever seen Zach get upset about my nails looking messy. After reluctantly painting them, as well as reluctantly putting on a dress and doing my hair and make-up, we headed to Castle Island in South Boston, because Zach said his parents would like to take a family photo there. It was a cold and windy March day, and I could not understand why this had to be done on today of all days. Zach and I get to Castle Island and we are waiting for his parents to arrive. As I see them walking up to us, Zach got down on one knee and proposed. I instantly started crying tears of love and joy. When I looked back up to see Zach’s parents, I noticed my parents, brother, sister, and my best friends walking towards me. The back-to-back surprises left me in tears – I couldn’t contain the amount of love and joy I felt. I loved the thoughtfulness and care that Zach put into the proposal.

Celebrating with our closest family and friends, and just dancing the night away.

What look were you going for in your engagement session?

We were looking for a classic, city chic/formal vibe that captured the heart of Boston (brick and cobblestone streets)

Do you have any tips or advice for couples getting ready for their session?

Definitely have a drink or two before the shoot. This was suggested by Christian and it was incredibly helpful.

How was your overall session experience?

We loved our experience! Christian is so friendly and warm; he made us feel really comfortable.

Engagement Photography at the Decordova Sculpture Park with Bernadette and Mike

It’s always amazing to discover new and beautiful places in New England. One of my favorite reasons I live in this area and there is never a lack of great spots! I find it even more incredible when a couple shares a spot for us to make some fun and beautiful engagement images.

Bernadette and Mike let me in on this not so secret place in Lincoln, MA., The Decordova Museum and Park. What a fascinating place to make pictures with a couple!

I loved our session and had such a blast with Bernadette and Mike up to and including them popping some champagne!

Here are a few sneak peeks as well as a few words from the couple about their story…

Boston Engagement Photography  M&B-1.jpg

How did you two meet?

We met on a ski trip to St Anton, Austria while we were both second year MBA students in the same program (and somehow hadn't met each other before then!)

We cannot wait to dance the night away with our family and friends and have everyone we love in one place!

Boston Engagement Photography  M&B-1-2.jpg

What look were you going for in your engagement session?


Something a bit more casual, fun, and incorporating how beautiful New England is in the fall!

Boston Engagement Photography  M&B-7.jpg

Do you have any tips or advice for couples getting ready for their session?
Have a drink to loosen up (great tip from Christian!) and plan your outfits in advance to make sure you have the shoes, jacket, etc.!

Boston Engagement Photography  M&B-6.jpg

How was your overall session experience?

Really fun - we are not usually that comfortable in front of a camera, but Christian made it really easy by giving us tips and pointers! We also enjoyed walking around to find different spots to take photos in and experimenting with poses.

Rebecca and James North End Engagement Photography

Another fantastic engagement photography session in our North End. It was almost instant, when I put the camera to my eye. Rebecca and James fell into the most comfortable of moments together. I could easily tell that I was a bystandered and they weren’t waiting for a shutter click to show their love. It would be effortlessly expressed. They made our session in the North End incredibly fun and aloud me to be creative, while simply witness to them. I was able to find some amazing light and love these shots…

Here are a few sneak peeks and some words from the couple about their story!

Boston Engagement Photography  R&J-1.jpg
Boston Engagement Photography  R&J-2.jpg

How did you two meet?


James owns a mobile pizza catering business and I run my family’s pizza dough business. James use to come in an buy dough from us. He would always ask me out until one day I agreed to go

Boston Engagement Photography  R&J-4.jpg

Tell us the proposal story~

We took a family trip to Italy over the summer for three weeks. On the second to last day James took me to a bridge that was special to him from a previous trip and he actually got lost. On our trip he found his way back and proposed right on the bridge.

Chelsea Engagement Photography with Emily & Chris

I had an incredible time with Emily and Chris shooting their engagement session over in Chelsea. A little overcast light plus this couple and their dog made for a really fun and beautiful session. Plus so much fun! Here are a few sneak peeks and some words from the couple about their story!

Boston Engagement Photography Emily-3.jpg

How did you two meet?

Emily and I met through the online dating service Match. She and I had jobs that engulfed our lives and we were not meeting any people outside of our respective work circles. I reached out to her and we arranged to meet at a restaurant in South Boston. We had dinner on our first date and spoke with each other and stayed at our table for so long, the waitor was getting annoyed we had not left yet.

Boston Engagement Photography Emily-4.jpg
Boston Engagement Photography Emily-5.jpg

Tell us the proposal story~

Emily and I went for a hike with our Australian Shepherd, Keeley, one Sunday afternoon in late June. We stopped for a moment and looked out at the scenery. Before moving on, I pulled the ring from our hiking backpack and walked up behind Emily. I hugged her from behind and with my arms wrapped around her, I presented her with the ring. Emily was very surprised and was not expecting the proposal at all. Emily was speechless for a few moments and then said yes.

Boston Engagement Photography Emily-6.jpg

Do you have any tips or advice for couples getting ready for their session?

Don't over think it. If you're not comfortable and everything is not natural, you will be stressed and the pictures will suck.

Boston Engagement Photography Emily-7.jpg

How was your overall session experience?

Amazing! Christian cracked jokes and talked with us about anything and everything, so the whole session was very enjoyable. Christian was also great at posing us and making our pictures not suck ;-) Thanks Christian! Maximum effort!

Boston Engagement Photography Emily-9.jpg

The North End with Heather and Paul

I’ve written about this so many times but I just love to shoot in the North End, my neighborhood. This day with Heather and Paul, who are also residents of this great place, was no different. We had a great time telling their story and making some fun images.

Here are a few sneak peeks and some words from the couple about their storyf

Boston Engagement Photography  H&P-1.jpg

How did you two meet?

We had initially crossed paths through mutual friends and years later ended up working together at the same company. We worked together for 2 years and were friends before we eventually started dating, and were able to keep it a secret until after Heather left the company.

Boston Engagement Photography  H&P-2.jpg

Tell us the proposal story~

I went to LA for work and Paul flew out to meet me so we could spend the weekend on Catalina Island. Shortly after arriving, we drove a golf cart up to a scenic overlook with a view of Avalon Bay and Paul set up the GoPro on time lapse so we could take pictures together. After we had taken a few shots, he got down on one knee and proposed! I was completely surprised and we have photo documentation of the proposal and the moments leading up to it.

Boston Engagement Photography  H&P-3.jpg
Boston Engagement Photography  H&P-5.jpg

What details are you most excited about for your wedding? EX. cake, vendors, location, etc.

We are most excited about having a big party with our friends and family at a beautiful location overlooking the ocean. We're also pretty pumped to go to Italy on our honeymoon and eat all the food & drink all the wine.

Where are you getting married? Misselwood in Beverly, MA

Boston Engagement Photography  H&P-4.jpg

Do you have any tips or advice for couples getting ready for their session?

Have a few cocktails beforehand to settle nerves :)

How was your overall session experience?

Our experience was great! Christian was fabulous to work with and made us feel at ease.

Engagement Photography in the White Mountains with Blair and Alex

I had a fantastic time trekking up to the White Mountains with Blair and Alex. We completely lucked out with such beautiful weather by the time we reached Cathedral Ledge. My entire drive from Boston was simply grey sky’s and had me worried. I loved the images we were able to create together.

Here are a few sneak peeks and some words from the couple about their story!

Boston Engagement Photography  B&A-1.jpg

How did you two meet?


It was the summer of 2014. I had just moved to Seattle for an Airport Operations internship after graduating from college in Nashville, TN. Alex was living in Philadelphia, recently relocated from New Hampshire to pursue a career with American Airlines as a Flight Attendant. We had been mutual friends on social media for about a year before he asked to meet for coffee during one of his work trips to Seattle. We clicked immediately. After dating long distance for a few months, we decided to relocate to Charlotte, NC to further pursue our careers and to travel Europe. Two years later, we relocated to Houston, TX so Alex could follow his lifelong dream of becoming an air traffic controller. Fast forward to 2018 and now we’re engaged!

Boston Engagement Photography  B&A-2.jpg

Tell us the proposal story~

A few months prior to our four year anniversary, Alex and I had planned a mini vacation to Puerto Vallarta, Mexico for a few days. Little did I know he was going to propose! We had a moment to ourselves on a balcony overlooking the ocean when he surprised me by asking me to be his wife, and I said: “of course.”

Boston Engagement Photography  B&A-5.jpg
Boston Engagement Photography  B&A-3.jpg

What details are you most excited about for your wedding?

We are foodies, so definitely the food! We are also excited to share the day with our close family and friends.


Where are you getting married?
The Bostonian Hotel.

Boston Engagement Photography  B&A-6.jpg

What look were you going for in your engagement session?

Alex and I wanted something unique that reflects us as a couple, so we chose to have an intimate session in the mountains. We also wanted a vastly distinctive setting from that of our wedding in the North End.

Do you have any tips or advice for couples getting ready for their session?

Choose something that is unique to you as a couple and go with it! If you’re stressed or worried about posing, just relax, have fun, and focus on channeling your affection toward your other half. Your love for each other will be even more prominent in your photos.

How was your overall session experience?

Christian was incredibly accommodating to our requests for the engagement session. We had chosen the White Mountains, which was quite the trek for all of us. We met at a coffee shop beforehand where we shared stories of traveling abroad. For the shoot, Christian walked us through each photo and gave us posing guidelines. He is extremely talented. We are looking forward to having him capture our wedding day!

Incredible Gloucester Wedding with Vanessa and Alex at the Cruiseport

This a wedding of not just clients but friends. We were referred to Vanessa and Alex via family and friends and we feel like part of their family now. The day was amazing and not only because I was able to shoot with my son but just being able to capture the love of this couple.

Alex and Vanessa were a pleasure to work with and I feel privileged to be the person to capture their day!

Here are a few images and the same day edit we created for their day!

Enjoy…

Engagement Photography in the North End with Shauna and David

This was a wonderful shoot with Shauna and David in the North End. You can feel the love these two have for each other just by looking at their smiles. Here are a few sneak peeks from our shoot as well as a few words from the couple about their story.

How did you two meet?

David and I met at a cookout in Boston in August 2015 where both my sorority and his fraternity were represented. I actually put my number in his phone one, because I thought he was cute, and two, because his fraternity brother was having an after party and I wanted the address!

Boston Engagement Photography S&D-2.jpg

Tell us the proposal story~

In early 2018, David told me that we were going to do a photo shoot for our two year anniversary in April 2018. The day came, and I was completely oblivious! David brought all of our friends and family together (caught me completely off guard) to watch a film that he had put together, with a voice over speaking about the act of falling in love. At the end of the video, David gave a speech (and shed a tear or two), walked over to me, and got down on one knee and proposed!

Boston Engagement Photography S&D-1.jpg
Boston Engagement Photography S&D-3.jpg

What details are you most excited about for your wedding?

I'm super excited to celebrate our love with all of our guests! I'm also excited about our venues - a beautiful church in Hyde Park for the ceremony, and a scenic view of the Charles for our reception. And of course, I'm very excited about the food!!

Where are you getting married? Greater Faith in Hyde Park

Where is the reception? Royal Sonesta in Cambridge

Boston Engagement Photography S&D-5.jpg
Boston Engagement Photography S&D-1-2.jpg
Boston Engagement Photography S&D-6.jpg
Boston Engagement Photography S&D-7.jpg

What look were you going for in your engagement session?

David and I wanted to capture our dressy side, as well as capture our more casual side (while getting some cute photos for our save the dates!) We also wanted to capture our sorority and fraternity, as that's what brought us together!

We chose the North End for photos because of its importance to me (my grandfather grew up there!) and the TD Garden because David loves sports - it's also where we had out first "official" date.

Do you have any tips or advice for couples getting ready for their session?

Relax and be yourselves! You want the photos to capture who you really are as a couple - so when you look back in a few years the photos resonate with you.

Wedding at the Bedford Village Inn New Hampshire with Kristen and Michael

An amazing wedding day with Kristen and Michael at the Bedford Village Inn. We were incredibly lucky with weather, which can always be in question in New England on a wedding day.

The location and couple were beautiful and made the day so fun and easy to shoot. We had the opportunity to head into Manchester for a few creative shots. Here are a few sneak peeks as well as the same day slideshow we created at the wedding.

Engagement Photography in Graffiti Alley with Christy and John

This has been a crazy wedding season and incredibly busy.  I can't complain at all about being busy, but I am so far behind in getting posts out.  This is one I couldn't wait to publish, not just for this beautiful couple that were a blast to work with, but also for the very cool locations in Cambridge Mass.  Graffiti Alley and Brick and Mortar.   A big thank you to the team at Brick and Mortar for not only being incredible, but allowing us to make a few cool images to start our shoot. 

Here are a few sneak peeks from the session as well as a few word from the couple about their story!

Enjoy!

Boston Engagement Photography  C&J-1.jpg
Boston Engagement Photography  C&J-2.jpg

How did you two meet?

We met through mutual friends about 12 years ago. We dated for a few years throughout that time and went our separate ways. I started a new job in 2016 and we reconnected. I truly believe in destiny after so many years as John lived in Virginia and I was from Boston. Now we get to live our Happily Ever After

Boston Engagement Photography  C&J-3.jpg

Tell us the proposal story~

Let’s just say there was not really a “proposal” haha. After dating in the past for years and reconnecting, John made a huge move to Boston. We spoke about our future together and what we both wanted and decided to get married! It’s been such a great blessing for the two of us and our families couldn’t be any happier for us to celebrate our big day next year!

Boston Engagement Photography  C&J-4.jpg

What details are you most excited about for your wedding?

We are mostly excited to have our friends and family from long and far share our special day with us. John and I are both Portuguese and have family traveling from all over Europe to celebrate with us. It will even be more exciting to have many of his family members from Virginia and Maryland see Boston for the first time

Where are you getting married?  St. Catherine of Siena Parish - Norwood, MA

Where is the reception?  Lombardo’s - Randolph, MA

Boston Engagement Photography  C&J-6.jpg
Boston Engagement Photography  C&J-7.jpg

What look were you going for in your engagement session?

Both John and I got really into our engagement photos and planned the location together. We wanted something different than just your typical Boston Public Garden Engagement Photo. We chose the Graffiti Alley in Cambridge because it was artsy and went perfect with the street chic look we were going for

Do you have any tips or advice for couples getting ready for their session?

Let loose with some drinks beforehand! Also, bring a close friend or someone in your Bridal Party that makes you feel comfortable and to enjoy the moment with you

How was your overall session experience?

John and I had such a great time with Christian from beginning to end! We met at the Brick and Mortar right in Central Square for some drinks before our session and even took some photos inside. The bartenders were so kind and gave us champagne to celebrate! Christian made us feel super comfortable and lead us through the whole session. He is truly amazing and it was like he became a part of the family

Darren and Joevrose's Vermont Wedding-Sugarbush Resort

I can't believe how incredible today's wedding was.  Although we have shot weddings in Vermont before, we could not be prepared for the outstanding wedding venue that Sugarbush Resort offered.  The mountains that surrounded Darren and Joevrose as they read their personal vows to each were breathtaking, but the vows weren't the only thing that made this wedding personal.  From the bride's cousin as their officiant, to family prayers, songs and readings... and how could I forget the procession!!!  The bridal party...all 12 of them along with the bride processed in by ski lift!  I have to say that was a first for us to see and so fun!

_CDP7777.jpg
_CDP7780.jpg
_CDP7841.jpg

Having a relationship with our clients and getting to know them through the booking and planning process is so important to us.  It really makes us all connected when we finally get to this magical day.  Not only are we so excited to see and capture the day but the couple is equally as excited to see us when we show up! 

_CDP7886.jpg
_CDP7895.jpg
_CDP7891.jpg

This was no exception, we were actually first introduced to Darren before they were even an engaged couple!  He had reached out to Christian to see if shooting his proposal to Joevrose in Boston was a possibility! 

_CDP7992.jpg

Fast forward to post proposal and on to their engagement session.  Usually we would have our clients pick a place that was in the Boston area and important to them, well their important place just happened to be in New York!  At the time they were engaged long distance and Joevrose had to schedule several trips to visit Darren in New York so it was a perfect spot to shoot their engagement!  Any time we can shoot in a different city, we jump at the chance of shooting new surroundings, colors, architecture, etc.  We started our New York engagement shoot with brunch and then we were off!  I love their session so much and in the mean time we were able to just hang out a lot of the day too, getting to know them even more!  For a look back at their session, check out the link here

_CDP8038.jpg
_CDP8122.jpg
_CDP8155.jpg

But enough about what lead them here and back to their wedding!  As they are dancing out on the dance floor right now with all of their friends and family I am just reminded of the personal stories of love that were shared on their mountaintop today.  I know that today was everything they ever hoped and dreamed of and we couldn't be happier for them both!  I can't wait for the smores and fireworks to top it all off and send them off in wedded bliss with a bang!  Congrats to you both and your families!  And keep scrolling to see the rest of their day with their same day slideshow we just finished showing!

Heather and Tim's wonderful day at the Blithewold Estate

Outside of being nearly eaten alive by mosquitos as we worked our way through the grounds, it was an absolutely magical day with Heather and Tim.  The Blithewold Estate offers some truly beautiful places for a wedding photographer to work with and I feel we took full advantage. 

Thanks again to Tim and Heather for trusting me with your incredible day.  Here are a few sneak peeks as well as a little video overview of the day!

Enjoy!

Incredible day with Melissa and Jeremy at the Wequassett Resort and Golf Club.  They couldn't have asked for a more amazing day and location.  Well into the night I found myself looking out over the grounds, beach and water and considering I might be on some Caribbean island as the sun set. 

I had the best time capturing the love and fun these two shared on their day and I can't wait for them to see this sneak peek!

Beautiful Wedding at the Roxbury Latin School with Dan and Megan

On a hot summer day in June 2018 a lovley group of friends and family met at The Roxbury Latin school in Boston to share an incredible day with two amazing people...

There is so much more to the story.  Dan and Megan came back to Dan's high school, a place so special that he wanted to share the best day of his life and start the next chapter with Megan.  I had an amazing time with this group and couldn't have asked for a nicer couple to spend the day with. 

Here are a few images from the day as well as a short video!

Tell us how you first met- who, what, when, where, why? Give us the dirty details-

We met on an internet dating website... doesn't everybody? After a short digital courtship, we arranged to have drinks at a now-defunct establishment in Beverly Hills. The next thing we knew we were dating, moving in together, and, well, getting married.

When did you know he/she was the one? Was there something he/she did? etc-

Dan: for me, it was a gradual realization. Over the course of our early relationship, Megan proved time and again how loving, kind, thoughtful, and loyal she was, and I eventually realized she was someone I wanted to build a life with. Megan: there were so many moments when I knew, and they all built upon each other, but one sticks out in my mind. Only about 6 months into our relationship, I let Dan know that I had an offer for a job in Chicago - an opportunity that would be great for my career, but would require me to move to a new city. While I could tell that he was disappointed, he didn't hesitate to encourage me to take the job. He knew it would be the best thing for me, even though it would require us to be apart for a time. This selflessness and confidence in our relationship struck me, and although it was early on, I knew that I had found someone pretty incredible.

Tell us about the proposal. Did you see it coming, how long was it in the planning? how did you feel? nervous, excited, freaking out?

I didn't see it coming! Although I should have known, because Dan made a plan for us to go out to a nice dinner and got super dressed up...:) Right as we were walking out the door, he went to find something in the bedroom and came out with a valet ticket. He asked me if I knew what it was from (I had no idea) and proceeded to explain that it was the valet ticket from our first date. By the time he reached in his pocket to pull out the ring, I was still totally confused. I finally realized what was happening and (with the happiest tears in my eyes) said yes!

Tell us the one thing you love most about each other-

Dan: What I love most about Megan is her integrity; she's so rock-solid in all the best ways, and I can always rely on her for love, support, counsel, and delicious treats. 

Megan: It's so hard to pick one thing! But, if I have to, I love Dan's resilience and positivity so much. He enjoys the small things in life, and helps me to do the same. And, when something doesn't work out as planned, he finds the positive angle and silver lining.

If you feel comfortable, share with us something silly or quirky the other person does-

Dan: Megan always seems to fill up quickly from dinner, but a half-hour or so later, she seems to miraculously have room for dessert. Perhaps it's a metabolic gift.

Megan: You would never know it by looking at him, but Dan will eat an ENTIRE package of Oreos if the opportunity presents itself. Another reason that I knew he was the one :)
