Try to Say That Three Times Fast

Autumn apple orchard engagement session. Autumn apple orchard engagement session. Autumn apple orchard engagement session. Phew!

Kat and TJ live on the west coast but flew into town the week before their wedding to get settled and ready for the big day. This also allowed us to get together in Kat’s hometown for an engagement session. The reason we include engagement sessions in all of our commissions is because there is an invaluable benefit of getting to know our clients (and them getting to know us) better by hanging out for a couple of hours before their wedding day. This always leads to a more relaxed, comfortable and confident client on the wedding day.

We spent most of the session at a private apple orchard, which is owned by a long time friend of Kat’s family. This orchard was IMMACULATE. I don’t think I saw a single apple or even a single leaf on the ground. Kat and TJ love to have fun and joke around together. We walked around the property searching for interesting environments and nice light while chatting about Kat’s anthropology work and TJ’s environmental work. I also got to hear TJ’s flawless Irish accent as they envisioned themselves on a trip to Ireland.

And of course we had to top off our visit with an apple tasting! We each got to enjoy a juicy apple, which we believe were Macoun. For the last part of the session, we moved to a nearby park to catch the last light of the night. The sun decided to peek through the clouds for about a minute and gave us a beautiful, pink and purple skyscape, which we ended the session with.

Check back in the future to see their wedding images and a special thanks to Fukuya, who is a talented photographer from Japan who tagged along and helped me with the session.

From England to the Cape – A Quissett Harbor House Wedding

Charlotte and Rich had their wedding at ¬†Quissett Harbor House in Falmouth, MA. It’s only steps from Charlotte’s family’s home and right across the harbor from her family’s boatyard. It’s also where we did their engagement session on a rainy evening, which you can see here! There were so many personal elements to the day, including the bridesmaids riding across the harbor in a boat and Charlotte’s father officiating the ceremony. With Rich being from England, there were fancy accents and witty banter galore and the energy that gathered for them on this day was one of overwhelming support and joy. It is always an honor to witness two people who truly and passionately love each other and have an extremely loving community all around them. This was one of those days. You would never know it but on the night that we did their engagement session, which was also about a week before their wedding, a violent storm rolled through the cape and actually snapped the main pole in their reception tent. Fortunately Sperry Tents were quick to respond and erected a new tent in time for the wedding. The day was smoothly coordinated by the wonderful and talented Kate from Kate Davis Events. Charlotte and Rich… Thank you so much for allowing us to capture such a special time in your lives!Charlotte + Rich - Wedding Day - For Print-2Charlotte + Rich - Wedding Day - For Print-594Charlotte + Rich - Wedding Day - For Print-24 Charlotte + Rich - Wedding Day - For Print-11 Charlotte + Rich - Wedding Day - For Print-15 Charlotte + Rich - Wedding Day - For Print-23 Charlotte + Rich - Wedding Day - For Print-29Charlotte + Rich - Wedding Day - For Print-45 Charlotte + Rich - Wedding Day - For Print-42 Charlotte + Rich - Wedding Day - For Print-47 Charlotte + Rich - Wedding Day - For Print-66 Charlotte + Rich - Wedding Day - For Print-70 Charlotte + Rich - Wedding Day - For Print-77 Charlotte + Rich - Wedding Day - For Print-83 Charlotte + Rich - Wedding Day - For Print-112Charlotte + Rich - Wedding Day - For Print-152Charlotte + Rich - Wedding Day - For Print-126 Charlotte + Rich - Wedding Day - For Print-115 Charlotte + Rich - Wedding Day - For Print-121 Charlotte + Rich - Wedding Day - For Print-122 Charlotte + Rich - Wedding Day - For Print-143Dressing Charlotte’s boat up!Charlotte + Rich - Wedding Day - For Print-175Charlotte + Rich - Wedding Day - For Print-189Charlotte + Rich - Wedding Day - For Print-203 Charlotte + Rich - Wedding Day - For Print-204 Charlotte + Rich - Wedding Day - For Print-218 Charlotte + Rich - Wedding Day - For Print-222 Charlotte + Rich - Wedding Day - For Print-228 Charlotte + Rich - Wedding Day - For Print-237 Charlotte + Rich - Wedding Day - For Print-239 Charlotte + Rich - Wedding Day - For Print-240 Charlotte + Rich - Wedding Day - For Print-243 Charlotte + Rich - Wedding Day - For Print-250A sisterly lick.Charlotte + Rich - Wedding Day - For Print-263 Charlotte + Rich - Wedding Day - For Print-277Charlotte wore a diamond brooch that belonged to her mother’s mother.

A Summer Engagement at the Arnold Arboretum – Libby + Ryan

On a warm summer day I met up with Libby and Ryan at the Arnold Arboretum in Jamaica Plain. Libby’s family has been living in JP for generations and Libby and Ryan have also made it their own home. I can’t express enough how warm, friendly and embracing they are to each other and everyone around them. We went to Peter’s hill for sunset and grabbed ice cream at J.P. Lick’s to end off the night. Libby and Ryan… Thank you so much for allowing me to capture such a special time in your lives!

Coastal Maine Sunrise Engagement Session – Krissy and Mike

While it feels quite unnatural to wake up while it’s still dark, the experience of driving toward the ocean as the horizon begins to glow is a special thing. Then getting to experience the moment that the sun peeks over the horizon is a whole other kind of special. Krissy and Michael wanted to capture their love with coastal Maine and their home as a backdrop. We started the engagement session at Marginal Way in Ogunquit, ME before the sun came up. Timing was perfect as the tide was low, which allowed us to navigate over the slippery rocks to a rocky point that is usually surrounded by water. One thing I noticed was how present and ready Krissy and Michael were to have a great time together that morning. Whether it was through playful banter or more quiet and introspective moments, their love was always there. Krissy and Michael… Thank you so much for letting us capture this special time in your lives!
