Another great wedding to share today! Or at least, part one of their wedding… Jane and Daniel are one of the sweetest couples! I just loved being a part of their wedding. In Jane’s words, the most important thing for us was to be surrounded by friends and family who we love. We wanted to make sure everyone had a good time. That they did, I’m sure! Many of their family and friends were up visiting from Louisville, Kentucky, so there was a nice “North meets South” theme going on. I’m down with that, as I’m originally from Georgia and my dear husband is a Massachusetts native.

Ceremony: St Joseph’s Church, Lincoln, MA

Reception: Pierce House, Lincoln, MA

I love hearing about how couples met and got engaged! Here is Jane and Daniel’s story:

Daniel & Jane met at music department event at Amherst College in 2005. Daniel was the handsome jazz pianist, and Jane was in the audience. After the performance, Daniel struck up conversation with Jane and dated for ~1 month. They went their separate ways after that month, but remained friends throughout the rest of college. Fast forward to 2008. Daniel graduated in the spring of 2008, but remained on campus as a music TA while Jane started her senior year. Due to Daniel’s role in the music department and Jane’s status as a music major, they both found ourselves in the music library more often than not. Daniel was a gentleman and often offered Jane a ride home after studying in the library. They began dating in November and have been together ever since!

Jane and her bridesmaids got ready at Jane’s parents gorgeous home in Lincoln, Mass. The drive there was spectacular, too, going through farm country and old colonial homes through the heart of a classic New England town. Just my favorite.

And then seeing Jane for the first time… so much emotion! Daniel’s three sisters, with their hands on their hearts.

And now part two of Alaina and Josh’s summer wedding at Plimoth Plantation! After the ceremony, we did a few more photos near the barn and then the couple was able to enjoy their cocktail hour and see all of their guests. The reception was in the tent, right there on the water, such a beautiful location.

We were doing some photos next to the barn, and this little guy (or gal?) decided to come over and say hello.

A bit of an emotional first dance… from Alaina: Dancing with Josh for the first time was so much fun. It was so surreal, we have never felt closer.

The party was awesome, we barely left the dance floor, same with the guests. The food and drink was great, everything was just a dream.
I would agree, a perfect day!

What were your first reactions to the photos? Oh we loved them!!!! They came out so beautiful! We praise you for capturing such amazing moments especially during our ceremony. We didn’t even notice you take them!

What is one suggestion you have for other couples who are planning their weddings? My one suggestion would be not to sweat the small things. Leading up to the wedding I thought I would notice if something went wrong or if something wasn’t set up right, but you really don’t. Just relax and enjoy your day because you only have it once.

What a busy and wonderful wedding season it’s been! It’s been a little while since I’ve blogged a full wedding post, and I couldn’t think of a better way to start than with Alaina and Josh’s picture-perfect, love-filled wedding at Plimoth Plantation.

We started with some getting ready photos (of both the guys and girls) at the Hilton Garden Inn, then went to the Hornblower Gardens at Plimoth Plantation for the first look before the ceremony. Everything was just so perfect!

Reception: Outdoor tent at Plimoth Plantation

How did the day start? Well I had 4 hours of sleep so I was running on pure excitement. My bridesmaids and I had coffee and muffins (later turning into mimosas and lunch) in the bridal suit that morning while beginning hair and makeup. Josh had lunch with his groomsmen and went back to his best mans room to get ready.

How did you feel during the ceremony? I was surprisingly okay during the ceremony. It was before it when I heard Canon in D and watching my bridesmaids walk down the garden steps that I got emotional. My dad was crying too which didn’t help my tears. During the ceremony I was just giddy and so happy.

Our goal of the wedding was to have everyone feel our love and feel loved in return. We wanted everyone to enjoy themselves and just have a great celebration. I made sure our guests knew how much we appreciated them through the program thank you’s and little tokens throughout the wedding. I wanted the wedding to be as personal as possible. The ceremony was the most important part for us because it was there we said our I Dos. Where we became one. It was so perfect.

Thankful for you

November 26, 2015

Happy Thanksgiving! I try to practice gratitude in my daily life for all of the little things (snuggling with my kids, a perfect sunset, that perfect chocolate chip cookie ;))… but I don’t think I could overstate just how grateful I am to be able to do what I do. When I first started out ten years ago, put together a simple website, and a little ad up on craigslist as a photographer starting out, I couldn’t imagine where it would take me. I’m so thankful for my wonderful clients who let me do what I love! Here are my amazing 2015 wedding clients… and I have to say that when I get comments like these, it’s just the icing on the cake!

Thank you, thank you, thank you.

I know its going to take us some time to digest it all, I just wanted to reach out and thank you for our fabulous photographs.

These are absolutely tremendous! I can’t even begin to tell you how happy we were to see such beautiful photos that are so completely true to the experience of the day. We both laughed AND cried looking at the amazing moments you captured over the course of the afternoon and evening. Thank you so much! We’ve sent the link out to our families, and everyone is having a terribly hard time narrowing it down to the favorites they’d like prints of, since everything is just so good!
Thank you again, we couldn’t have asked for a better photographer. These are truly something else.

Wow!!! We are delighted. Start to finish, working with you was a delight and the photos are fabulous. I am thrilled with how well the barn worked as a backdrop for the portraits — that was my vision all along. I am also grateful you arrived in time to take pictures of the reception tent; I completely forgot to task anyone with that specifically, and by the time we got there after the wedding it was already completely disheveled. We would have been happy with just a few nice photos, but you got so many I hardly know how to think about what we’ll choose to print… Plus, it’s lovely to revisit the ceremony through your photos. You have such a great eye.
