Hey there! So, I’ve been poring over all my wonderful weddings from 2014 in the search for the best candid photos for the annual WPJA – Wedding Photojournalist Association – contest. Each year it just seems harder and harder to narrow them down! I can only submit 60 images for the contest, but I’ve got it narrowed to about 70. I’ll be splitting them into three blogposts over the next few days. The images are in no particular order.

So, without further adieu, photos from weddings from Boston to Amherst, from Portland, Maine to Newport, Rhode Island!

There’s a lot of laughter in these photos, I love it :)

Oh, October! My favorite month for so many reasons… The light that gets all golden through the changing leaves, a crisp feel in the air, and engagement sessions! It’s the perfect time, as wedding season is slowing down. We chose a date that was actually just one year from Emma and John’s wedding, which will be at Harrington Farm in Princeton. I’m so looking forward to it, these two are so cute!

Another beautiful Willowdale Estate wedding! One of my favorite venues, in my favorite season (autumn, although it was still pretty summer like on this gorgeous late September day). And an absolutely stunning couple – Tina and Jacob. I photographed their engagement session almost a year prior, which is always a nice way to get to know my clients and see how they are in front of the camera. How am I so lucky? These two said (as so many do) that they were not too comfortable having their photos taken, yet they are complete naturals! It often turns out that way. I try to make it easy to be yourself, and of course during the wedding day, you don’t need to think about being photographed! Just be in the moment, as Tina and Jacob obviously were, enthralled with each other.

This is a slight departure from my normal blogpost layout – this is their wedding album design! I love the way it turned out, and their red leather cover will be a nice echo to Willowdale’s red front door.

I love that Willowdale has a spacious groom suite as well, so it’s easy to get photos of the whole wedding party while they get ready.

Pumpkins! My favorite – you might not be able to see – their initials carved into a pumpkin, which was on the front entrance table at Willowdale Estate.

I love that they’re doing the cake cutting out in the courtyard now at Willowdale. It’s usually around dusk, which is just so romantic and dreamy with the cafe lights out there.

Another wedding with tons of candid moments that I love! Rachel and Nick’s wedding was at the historic Portland Company (in Portland, Maine)… Ceremony and reception right across a little bridge/walkway, very neat! I can’t wait to blog all the details from this wedding, too – incredible!

With such a large wedding party (nine on each side, I think? I’ll have to go back and count), there were tons of fun moments with their friends and close family throughout the day.
