Emily + Juan – A Misty Morning Engagement Session in Rockport

I met Emily, Juan, and their dog, Chico, just before sunrise for their engagement session. We explored the calming seaside together on a misty morning in Rockport. The first thing I noticed about them was their warm dynamic and playfulness. After spending time on the rocky coast, we went to a house that is in Juan’s family. Finally, we went to Bearskin Neck and got to pick up lobster and enjoy having what is normally a bustling tourist location, all to ourselves. It was also on this morning that Emily and Juan introduced me to lemon Luna Bars (yummm). I can’t wait to share their love-filled, Gloucester wedding day with you!

The Most Beautiful Wedding Day Rain Storm at Boston Nature Center

Never before have I seen a couple who were excited about rain on their wedding day! Libby and Ryan were married on a warm and unforgettable summer day in July. It was full of music, laughter, family and community. While the guys were getting ready in the morning, they spent time putting up decor in Libby and Ryan’s new apartment to surprise Libby with when she got home after the wedding. The ceremony was filled with music and high spirits and afterwards, guests cooled off with refreshments and push pops before their grand exit. Casual, summer vibes flowed through the rest of the afternoon and into the evening at the Boston Nature Center as everyone enjoyed playing games, eating delicious food and great company. You can check out their Arnold engagement session at the Arnold Arboretum as well. A huge thanks to the always pleasant Bear, who was the second photographer for the day.

Libby and Ryan… Thank you so much for allowing us to capture such a special part of your lives.

She Can Palm His Face! Vidhya + Jerry – An NYC Engagement Session

With the promise of karaoke, ramen shops and photography megastores, visits to NYC are always satisfying. I usually make a couple of these trips each year to do engagement sessions for my New York clients. When paired with hilarious and fun couples, the trips become even better. I met Vidhya and Jerry for their NYC engagement session at High Line. It’s a unique public park built on an elevated section of a former railroad line. We shared a cordial greeting and it wasn’t long at all before they forgot about me being there. They just enjoyed spending time together, joking, dancing and face-palming. Their dynamic exudes an infectious, magnetic energy.

After spending a bit of time at High Line, we moved down to the street level. We explored the charming residential streets near the Meatpacking District. The laughs continued until the final seconds of our session and I’m pretty sure I still heard them laughing after we said goodbye to each other. Vidhya and Jerry, it was SUCH a pleasure spending time in the city with the two of you and capturing this special time in your lives.

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.
