Anna and Brian were married at the Lyman Estate in Waltham, MA. We couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful day for their intimate outdoor ceremony on the lawn, followed by cocktails along the veranda, and then a reception inside the ballroom. They kept it simple and had their closest family and friends by their sides to assist throughout their getting ready and also as the officiant and readers during the ceremony. I had such a lovely time documenting their day for them. My favorites are below!

Lily and Andy held their wedding at Cinquecento, an Italian restaurant right in the city. Being self-proclaimed foodies, it only made sense to do something a little less traditional and throw an unforgettable dinner party for their closest family and friends. There were so many things I loved about this wedding, particularly its intimate size, the focus on food, and that we got to spend some time getting beautiful portraits of Lily and Andy at the Boston Public Garden before the ceremony. And of course the details! Their art deco-inspired details and gorgeous florals went beautifully with Cinquecento’s decor. Lily’s dress is also a favorite of mine, and she looked absolutely stunning in it! I could go on and on, so let’s get to the photos…

Kendra and Garrison and I met up last September for their engagement session in Boston. It’s always fun to meet couples for the first time, especially when I’ve only chatted with them on the phone or on Skype prior to booking. Kendra and Garrison are so easy going and love to laugh together and it really felt like I was talking to old friends! For their session we started at the Boston Public Library and made our way towards the esplanade and then Beacon Hill. We really couldn’t have picked a better day for photos! It was beautiful, one of the last summer days before it officially turned fall, and it makes me excited for their wedding at Look Park in western Mass, which will take place exactly one year from the date of this shoot.

Christina and Mike were married at the Waterman Grille in Providence, a restaurant I’ve shot at once before and one that I love for its intimate atmosphere and delicious food. It’s really such a lovely spot for a small wedding. The day was a fun one, with a personalized ceremony that reflected Christina and Mike’s sweet and fun personalities, and an evening filled with lots of laughs and dancing. I loved the deep purples that made their way into the florals and other details of their wedding – so gorgeous for fall!

Alexis and Will traveled up from New York a few months ago and we were finally able to meet and spend some time capturing some shots of the two of them around Rockport. We started at Halibut Point State Park which overlooks a nice little quarry and the ocean and then moved along to downtown which has the harbor and cute shops. It wasn’t winter yet but the weather that day felt so much like today – so chilly you could feel it in your bones! I can’t believe it’s already the first day of spring…and in only a couple of months I’ll be seeing these two again for their wedding in Salem! Time flies! Here are some of my favorites from their session.
