three such days with you I could fill with more delight

While there are few things in life as wonderful as celebrating the wedding of your first grade best friend I now have proof that documenting the big may actually be more wonderful.

I recently had the distinct honor of photographing Sarah & Mike’s wedding in our Michigan hometown.  It was gorgeous in every way and one of the happiest weddings in memory – I really ‘felt all the feels.’

And without further ‘ado, Sarah & Mike’s sunny Michigan wedding:

Seek us in love itself,
Seek love in us ourselves.
Sometimes I venerate love,
Sometimes it venerates me

One of the highlights of last wedding season was photographing the joyful celebration of Elif & Emeka’s wedding.  Elif is the most elegant and lovely woman.  A moment in her presence and everyone feels a bit more grounded and calm.  She has that effect on people.  This quality, combined with Emeka’s  warmth and kindness makes it easy to see why over 400 people wanted to celebrate their union – they are two of the most genuine, sweet and fun people!

It was my first time photographing a Nigerian – American- Turkish wedding but I’m sincerely hoping it will not be my last.  A few favorites from a spectacular celebration (designed my brilliant dear friend Gina of Shi Shi Events) of two wonderful individuals and three glorious traditions.

The Kind of Post You Don’t Want To WriteFebruary 15, 2015

posted in Families, Personal

Can I see another’s woe,
And not be in sorrow too?
Can I see another’s grief,
And not seek for kind relief?

-William Blake
 In the day to day of running a business, rushing off to various shoots, and keeping our personal lives together it is sometimes all too easy to forget this simple fact:
As photographers we are first and foremost the record keepers of our time.
When my business was still in its early stages my husband had a colleague who lived with her gorgeous family nearly next door to us.  A beautiful person, inside and out, Melissa was tragically taken from this world last weekend.  She was a courageous and inspirational person but also absolutely lovely, warm, and generous.  I can’t believe she is gone.  I am sending so much love to her husband, to their 3 beautiful children, and to the loving community of Wooster where she lived.
Here is a shot of Melissa with her eldest child from a family shoot we did together back before I was even shooting film again.

We miss you, friend.

     As I sit here in what seems like an endless winter with 6 foot snowdrifts on all sides and the threat of another blizzard to come I find myself feeling nostalgia for the loveliness of Summer.  Enter: Darcie & Joe’s perfect Berkshires wedding.  I will leave these beauties and a tease of their wedding images here in the hopes that some of their warmth will radiate out into the world…  See more on Every Last Detail blog HERE.

It is an honor that humbles me to see my work featured in print.

2015-01-21_001

I have the privilege of having not one but two of my favorite shoots of the last season featured in The Knot New England’s Spring 2015 issue.  The first is a multi-page spread on Kennan & Keith’s Camp wedding:

The second is the the opening page of the engagement session section which features a full page spread with a favorite shot from Elizabeth & Peter’s Provincetown engagement:

I also have the distinct honor of a credit in People magazine’s ‘Sexiest Man Alive 2015″ issue, where they have used (and credited, and paid for,) a  shot from my session with dreamy Italian tenor, Giuseppe Filianoti:

I love artists’ weddings!  As such, Billie & Greg’s Rockport Art Association wedding has a very special place in my heart.  But it’s not just the sensorial beauty, there really couldn’t be two sweeter souls than these two gorgeous individuals, and every aspect of their day was filled with grace.  For more from their gorgeous day, check out this post on Style Me Pretty  today and leave some love.

One of the loveliest places I have had the pleasure of visiting is the charming town of Camden, Maine.  I recently had the pleasure of photographing two of the kindest and most beautiful souls join there lives there at the sybaritic feast for the senses that is the Camden Harbor Inn.

Audrey & James’ wedding is one that I wish I could go back to every year for the rest of my career – it was a dream in every way and I am so pleased to share a few favorites from their amazing day:

“…a cup of strong hot coffee when you’re blue; for a man, a cigarette for contentment; a book to read when you’re alone – just to be with someone you love. Those things make happiness.”

-Betty Smith, A TREE GROWS IN BROOKLYN

A few weeks ago I had the distinct pleasure of photographing these two elegant souls in their Brooklyn habitat.  Janna and Gregory are both style mavens and their love completely inspired me!  From their fashion selections, to their café of choice, not to mention all of Prospect Park as their backyard, I knew that I had the best Brooklyn tour guides a girl could ask for – and serendipitously, the best light.    Here are a few favorites from their fabulous Engagement session:
