Lenox Wedding Photographer | Berkshires Wedding Photographer | Boston Film Wedding Photographer | New England Film Wedding Photographer | Kemble Inn Wedding Photographer – Katie & Matt – Married!June 23, 2016

posted in Category One.

2016-06-23_013Katie & Matt’s beautiful wedding at the Kemble Inn was held on the kind of May, New England Day that threatens rain.  I like to think that it was the warmth and joy of Katie & Matt themselves that held the rain off on this little slice of the Lenox for a perfect Berkshires Wedding.  Special thanks to the wondrous Jackie for seamlessly coordinating the day.

I wish I cold post in a snippet of the best man/maid of honor toasts so that you could hear the humor and love that these two inspire in their friends – it really was a day full of love and laughter.  A few favorites of these two gorgeous sweethearts shot on Fuji 400h.

Jamaica Plain Wedding Photography | Roslindale Wedding Photography | Boston Film Wedding Photography | New England Film Wedding Photography | Julia & Christoph – Engaged!May 6, 2016

“The garden of love is green without limit and yields many fruits other than sorrow or joy. Love is beyond either condition: without spring, without autumn, it is always fresh.”

– Rumi

2016-05-06_009This is a post about a very special pair to whom I seem to be connected in a few very uncanny ways.  I first had the privilege to meet the lovely Julia during my opera days in California many years ago.  She is an absolutely gorgeous person in every way (not to mention her singing – which is about as gorgeous as it gets!) At the time she was about to embark upon a new life as a singer based in Germany.  Fast forward many years, a few major life events in my own story, and my husband and I find ourselves looking to buy a house in Boston when we casually walk into a realty office in Jamaica Plain.  The realtor we end up chatting with was great – he ends up helping us purchase our first home – and we also discover after a few days that he is Julia’s dad!  Small world indeed!  This connection gets Julia and I back in touch as her parents live around the corner from our new house in Boston.  In the course of our correspondence (and some facebook stalking) I learned that Julia had an adorable and charming boyfriend named Christoph.  When I finally got to meet him, he had become her fiancé.  I was struck by what a perfect match this warm, funny, and ready-for-anything man was for Julia – he’s also a very talented photographer in his own right.  Did I mention that Julia’s parents are the cultivators of an award winning garden (literally)?  It really is something – see for yourself below – as it offered to perfect locale for our shoot. It began to rain in the middle so we headed over to the Forest Hills MBTA station – not the most typical spot for an engagement shoot but the light was great and it offered us several opportunities to capture a few of Julia & Christoph’s favorite things – donuts, dancing, and a very impressive jump shot.

Boston Film Engagement Photographer | Cambridge Film Engagement Photographer | Mt. Auburn Engagement Session | Erin & Alex – Engaged!April 15, 2016

“Where smiling spring its earliest visit paid, And parting summer’s lingering blooms delayed”

“Sweet Auburn” from The Deserted Village by Oliver Goldsmith, 1770

2016-04-15_001

The day I shot Erin & Alex’s laid-back engagement session in the stunning paths of the Mt. Auburn Cemetery and its environs was one of loveliest days of the year.  I think the day started out that way to begin with, but to be perfectly honest it may have been Erin and Alex’s luminous smiles and radiating love that made it so.  Love has a way of doing that to a scene.  Taking it from a mundane Wednesday evening and turning into the loveliest day of the year in one’s memory.  A few favorites from a shoot where every frame was a favorite:

“Love is the voice under all silences, the hope which has no opposite in fear; the strength so strong mere force is feebleness: the truth more first than sun, more last than star.” 

-e.e. cummings

2016-04-07_001

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – engagement sessions are my absolute favorite kind of shoots.  I have many different photography loves but the shoots that give me the utmost joy are engagement sessions.  Ellissa & Dan’s engagement session was the kind of session that makes me double down on this sentiment and feel so lucky to have the job that I do.  They were both up for anything, so easygoing, and kind to one another.  And then there was the laughter.  There was a lot of laughter.  What a privilege to photograph this stage in their lives.  I cannot wait for their wedding in September!
A few favorites from a session with nothing but favorites:

I have heard the mermaids singing, each to each”

Jill is my mermaid bride.  Her hair, her dress, her fluid elegance…  The entire time I was photographing her gorgeous wedding to her love, Kel, I thought so.  She is also such a joyful and lovely person, and Kel is her perfect match – the two were always checking in with their friends and family to make sure they are having as much fun as can be.  The light at Jill & Kel’s wedding was absolute perfection and I remember this happy pair teasing me about ”the Arielle light” because they knew how excited I would be to shoot in that gorgeous, creamy evening glow.  A few favorites from their glorious day, which also happened to have the most gorgeous ceremony music ever thanks to Kel’s amazing musical knowledge.  As a former classical musician I was in heaven.

“Wine enters through the mouth,
Love, the eyes.
I raise the glass to my mouth,
I look at you,
I sigh.”
― W.B. Yeats

2016-01-19_003

    One of the loveliest weddings of last season was Jennifer and Jason’s vineyard wedding at the beautiful New Hampshire gem of a venue, LaBelle Winery.  Not only was it on one of the most perfect days of the season but there was a palpable joy from the moment I set foot at LaBelle.  Something in the earth itself was ready to celebrate this marriage.  When things run this smoothly it’s a photographer’s dream – especially when everyone is so sweet the entire day.  One of the kindest and happiest couples I know, Jennifer and Jason deserve all the joy in the world.
