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!

Isabelle + Michael – Crossing the River and Back

Isabelle works in sustainable development at United Nations and Michael is a talented film maker, composer, you name it! We spent the evening running around the city, making memories in meaningful places and in between. The second part of the session included them getting dressed up in the costumes they met each other in at a party, years ago. You can check out Michael’s work here and the film project they started while traveling through Africa on their honeymoon, here.

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!

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!
