You can’t fake love.
There, I said it. It’s sappy (I am a wedding photographer, can you blame me?!) and I am sure a statement you’ve heard before … but it is the truth. Through out my career I have been blessed to work with SO. MANY. COUPLES. that are truly in love. Truly and completely. I am even more fortunate to be able to say that it’s my job, to capture my clients’ love for each other. (Hello!! BEST JOB EVER!!!)
True love is evident in a look, a subtle touch, a embrace, and sometimes it just radiates off couples. Kind of like the way the colors do in the Fall, during peak foliage season, and especially during the golden hour … which if you didn’t know, is around an hour before sunset. Enter Kelly and Bill (Bill, I am so sorry for the sappiness that is oozing from this post, but I think you will forgive me!) It’s easy to see here that they love each other, very much so. We started their session at Halibut State Park, where we took advantage of all the beautiful trees and the rocky ocean edge. Before the sun got too low, we made our way to Rockport. There we grabbed some shots next to the ever popular Motif #1 and along the adorable streets of the quintessential New England sea-side town.
Kelly and Bill, it was a blast to get to know the two of you better and I am so excited to capture all the beautiful moments of your wedding day!
Enjoy your feature
I can’t take too much credit for this photograph! This was totally Bill’s idea
Which one is your favorite!? I totally couldn’t decide!!
Thank you Facebook (actually my cousin Jen!) for alerting me to this amazing holiday, National Cat Day! Seriously, call me a cat lady all you want, doesn’t phase me one bit Why? Because if you’ve ever had the privilege of meeting our fluffy, full-of-personality kitty, then you’ll know she is the best. I am not exaggerating. Pill, (yes her name is Pill … short for Pillford, but I assure you … she is also a pill) was originally Jon’s cat. He’s had her since his sophomore year in college and it’s nothing short of a miracle that she is still alive. From walking the edge of a Boston apartment building roof, sleeping on a window ledge with no screen to protect her from a 3-story fall below, to making it known that she is the Queen of the castle to any and all other household pets; Pill is the boss. I say she “was” Jon’s cat because over the last 4 years she and I have become little buddies. She follows me around the apartment, rests near my feet while I am working in my office, “patiently” waits on my side of the bed for me to wake up in the morning to feed her, and is always there when I am in need of a good cuddle. To say I love Pill is an understatement. She is truly one of my best little friends and I love her as much as I can only imagine I will, one day, love my children.
So, Happy National Cat Day Pilly … we love you to the moon and back <3!!
This is a special post folks! Alli, Todd, and I have known each other for the last 4 years. After many Easters, Thanksgivings, and Christmas dinners … lazy Sunday’s lake side with a few adult beverages while cruising on the boat, and watching the Red Sox kick some butt … I am happy to say that not only are we friends, we’re family. You see, Alli is my fiance’s cousin and since the very first day I met his family (and I mean everyone in his family), I have felt welcomed and loved.
Alli and Todd decided they wanted to have their engagement pictures taken while the whole family was in Vermont for the weekend. HOLY PEAK FALL COLORS ALL OVER THE PLACE BATMAN!!! (Yes, all caps were necessary!) You’ll see what I mean as soon as you start looking at the photographs.
Thank you Alli and Todd, this session was so fun and I can’t wait to photograph your special day!!
Is it normal to get emotional when imagining your own wedding? Seriously, I’ll be driving in my car, concentrating on the road of course…, but also daydreaming of what it will be like to see Jon for the first time in my gown, or gathering our families together for family pictures, etc. and I just start to cry! Happy tears, of course, but is this normal??! At any rate, now that I am among you lovelies that are feverishly planning your wedding day, I am so much more sensitive to all the intimate happenings that are apart such an important day.
Rachelle and Martin planned a DREAM wedding at The Commander’s Mansion in Watertown, MA with the help of wedding planner, Jaime, of Eventfully Planned. What I loved about Rachelle and Martin’s wedding was the perfect blend of American and English wedding traditions that were threaded though out the day. From the wonderfully colorful and ornate hats, a heartfelt speech offered to their Mother’s, or the little pre-wedding dance Rachelle had with her Father while she was getting ready … this little wedding photographer may have been brought to happy tears … maybe … okay, okay, … I was crying! What can I say, I am a softy, haha!
Rachelle and Martin, thank you so much for inviting me along to capture your beautiful wedding day! Enjoy
