My love as deep. The more I give to thee,
The more I have, for both are infinite.”

Rachel & Billy’s Nantucket wedding was everything a Nantucket wedding should be.   Beautiful, classic, elegant, with a soupçon of that indescribable lush Nantucket something;  part verdant scenery, part wild sea, with the rosa rugosa causing the entire island to smell of wild roses.  It’s a magical place.  And Rachel & Billy are so beautiful and in-love that it was truly a photographer’s paradise.  A few favorites from a day of nothing but favorites:

Arnold Arboretum Engagement| Boston Film Wedding Photographer | New England Film Wedding Photographer | New Hampshire Film Wedding Photographer | Maine Film Wedding Photographer | Jen & Jon – Engaged!August 6, 2015

Despite living within walking distance I have never (until now) had the pleasure of shooting an engagement session in my beloved Arnold Arboretum.  Jen & Jon (an outstanding artist/designer and an amazing illustrator/designer, respectively) and their gorgeous French bulldog, Gretta, met me on a glorious evening at the Arboretum for their engagement session.  They had the audacity to tell me that they were awkward in front of the camera.  I give you proof of the opposite being true.  All three of them did fabulously.

A few favorites from a session full of them!

“I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where. I love you simply, without problems or pride: I love you in this way because I do not know any other way of loving but this, in which there is no I or you, so intimate that your hand upon my chest is my hand, so intimate that when I fall asleep your eyes close.”
― Pablo Neruda, 100 Love Sonnets

2015-07-30_001

I recently had the distinct honor of photographing the engagement of one of my favorite collaborators, the stunning Kathryn Yee of Bash Studio and The Everyday Napkin and her equally alluring fiancé, Jake.  I could fill pages on how sweet these two are together but I think I’ll let the images speak for themselves.  A few favorites from our gorgeous evening in Beacon Hill (featuring Tatte Patisserie, bien sûr!) and Kathryn & Jake’s rooftop terrace in the South End.

It is a very special thing for a photographer when all of the uncontrollable factors of a shoot line up.  For Jenelle and Darin’s engagement session, this rare occurence happened.

Gorgeous, happy, fun, in-love couple?  Check!  Perfect setting?  Check!  Clear, sunny day?  Check!
Amazing golden hour light?  Check!  Check! Check! 

A few favorites on Fuji 400h from one of the most perfect sessions.   And one of the most lighthearted and fun, due to Jenelle & Darin’s carefree and adventurous spirits!

There is no remedy for love but to love more

I’m really fortunate in that my clients are all pretty wonderful.  Lena & Anhtuan are especially so.  Just two of the sweetest and warmest people I’ve had the pleasure to meet.  But don’t let their sweetness fool you, they also know how to throw one hell of a party!  One of my favorite things about being a wedding photographer is having the honor of experiencing different culture’s wedding traditions.  Lena & Anhtuan’s beautiful wedding featured customs from Chinese, Vietnamese, Hmong, and American cultures.  Not to mention just about the most fun-loving and fabulous friends and family a photographer could wish for.

A few favorites from lovely Lena & Anhtuan’s fabulous wedding celebration.

There is something very special about doing an engagement session in the very spot of a couple’s first kiss as we did for Sydney & Mike’s Public Gardens engagement session.2015-06-02_001 2015-06-02_002  2015-06-02_004 2015-06-02_005 2015-06-02_006

Sydney is one of my favorite collaborators and Mike is her chivalrous true love (and how amazing would it be to have an actual Apple Genius in the family!?)

Together they are one of my favorite couples.  I cannot wait for the wedding of these two passionate and tender souls.

XO,

 People don’t notice whether it’s winter or summer when they’re happy.

-Anton Checkhov

As the Spring wedding season begins, I’d like to share one last Wintery wedding.   Meredith & Edward’s January wedding was on one of the coldest days of the year, in the midst of the record breaking Boston snowfall.  It had all of the romance of a great Russian novel (plus one of the most moving and deeply emotional love stories I’ve had the privilege to photograph.)  A few favorites from their glorious day caught on Fuji Film.

     It was the day after a night of rain.  A washing away of winter from Brooklyn Bridge Park.  The setting for Keilly & Scott’s luminous engagement, caught on film.  I love the way the puddles in the streets reflect the light.

I love the way Scott and Keilly’s eyes reflect their adoration of one another.  A few favorites from a fabulous session:2015-04-15_002
