Camp Kiwanee Wedding – Laura + Jim

Laura and Jim invited dear friends and family to spend the weekend with them at Camp Kiwanee in Hanson, MA. The dappled sunlight and fresh woodsy air set the stage for this elegant and love-filled rustic affair. Laura’s dress was stunning and Jim was quite the dapper groom with his eggplant linen bowtie. Their wedding ceremony was held overlooking a pond and they came up the aisle to the enchanting sounds of a live Irish musical trio. Their ceremony included a moving Celtic handfasting and there were no shortage of smiles and applause when they walked back up the aisle as husband and wife. Their reception included gorgeous details and they even made their own home brew as wedding favors for all of their guests. Laura and Jim, thank you so much for allowing us to be part of such a special time in our lives! You can also check out their engagement session that they brought their spirited and adorable puppy to HERE.

Amber + Matt – After Session

Amber and Matt had an intimate wedding ceremony out west earlier in the year and wanted to have portraits done in their wedding attire back at home. We scheduled their “after session” for around sunset in hopes to capture some images with lens flare, which Matt really loves. (He’s an amateur photographer with some great work!) When we arrived, the sky was mostly overcast, but as the session went on we would catches glimpses of the sun through the clouds. Finally at the very end and just before the sun sank below the horizon, it appeared in full glory and you’ll see from the last images that we were able to capture some wonderful lens flare! We had a lot of fun exploring the outdoors and joking around together and I’m so glad I got to capture this special time in their lives. Thank you Amber and Matt!

Crane Estate and Crane Beach Engagement Session – Linda + Mike

Linda and Mike chose the Crane Estate and Crane beach as the backdrop to capture this special time in their lives. The light was gorgeous and their connection, so genuine. Mike is a talented photographer himself so I’m sure it was a unique experience for himself to be on the other side of the lens. =) Thank you for letting us capture such a special time in your lives!

A Chatham Bars Inn Wedding – Amy + Deniz

There are times when you meet two people and you think how amazing it is that they found each other and at the same time you’re not surprised at all. They come from very different backgrounds but their deep hearts, value of family and love of music make them such a perfect pair! It has been so wonderful to get to know Amy and Deniz and their wedding day perfectly reflected the goodness in them, their cultural backgrounds and the close relationships they have with those who have touched their lives. They were married on Cape Cod at the Chatham Bars Inn and what a beautiful setting it provided for such a special day. There were so many thoughtful details, from gifting their guests towels from Turkey (Deniz is Turkish), to a Chinese guest sign banner (Amy is half Chinese), to mixing sand from Cape Cod and Turkey during there ceremony, and finally an emotional honoring of Deniz’s mother who couldn’t be there, but was very present in everyone’s hearts. Warm hugs and laughter was plentiful and the dance floor action was killer! Amy and Deniz.. Thank you so much for letting us document such a special time in your lives!

She Said “YES!” A Surprise Proposal in Boston – Jaecel + Kim

Jaecel wanted to propose to Kim while they were visiting Boston from Texas, so we came up with a plan that allowed him to present his proposal to her on the water with the city in the background. We chatted back and forth over the course of a few weeks and picked the perfect spot in Fan Pier Park/Harborwalk. With excitement (and confidence!) he got down on one knee, proposed to her and she said, “YES!” Take a look at the photo of their kiss below right after it happened. They’re smile kissing! After that we created a few portraits to capture their connection and further immortalize the moment. Even though I’m not the one doing the proposing, I always get butterflies in my stomach leading up to documenting it. Thank you so much for allowing us to capture such a special event in your lives! A special thanks to Will Moik for helping!
