Last summer I second shot for the incredibly talented Heidi Vail at a Vermont wedding at Hildene, a beautiful estate in Manchester that was home to Abraham Lincoln’s son and family for 70 years. I was lucky enough to shoot with Heidi for several more weddings last season (so much fun!) and this was the perfect start. Couldn’t have asked for more gorgeous weather or a more stunning backdrop of hills, gardens, and of course the estate itself. Thanks for having me, Heidi!
I met up with Penny and Jerry last month for an engagement session around the city. While they’ve made it official at city hall months ago, they’re planning to throw a celebration with friends and family and it was fun to get these portraits in for them before then. We started in Beacon Hill and made our way to the Esplanade. I loved that it was an overcast day because it really made Penny’s red and blue dresses pop! Congrats, you two!
Lily and Marcelo had an intimate city hall ceremony in Boston a few weeks ago, and I was lucky enough to be asked to tag along afterwards to capture some photos of them around our beautiful city. We hit some of the best spots, like Beacon Hill and the Public Garden and Public Library. Every time I get to do one of these sessions I fall more in love with Boston. Lily and Marcelo will be holding a dinner reception later this week, where they’ll have more friends and family along for the celebration, and I can’t wait to document it!
I photographed a Hawthorne Hotel wedding in the spring which I loved and then got to return again in the fall for Kaela and Peter’s wedding. Working at a venue more than once is always fun because it really highlights how different every wedding and every couple is! Kaela and Peter’s wedding felt especially warm with the fall foliage as the backdrop and with seasonally themed centerpieces that really made it feel so festively fall. I loved the shawls that Kaela and her sisters/bridesmaids wore throughout the day – such a pretty accessory! Here are some of my favorites from their day.

Chris and Jackson had a sweet fall wedding that included tea ceremonies at their families’ houses and then a ceremony at the Cathedral Church of St. Paul before heading to Catalyst Restaurant in Cambridge for their dinner reception. We had time to spend at Fellsmere Park for some outdoor portraits and despite the (what felt like) freezing cold, we got some really beautiful shots. I love weddings that feel low-key and intimate, where being invited to be there feels like such an honor, and this was one of those days. Here are some of my favorites!
