Never underestimate the beauty you can find 10 minutes from your house. A few favorites from my session with Lauren and Steve at Horn Pond. If I’ve said it once, I’ve said it a million times, shooting photos for people I’ve known since elementary school never gets old. Can’t wait to do it all again next May.

Hidden Pond has been really good to us. It’s the venue that helped us kick start our career with Kyle and Ann’s wedding in 2013, it gave us the opportunity to shoot our first same sex wedding and now it’s our first published work. Mind blown.

Earlier this summer, we received word from The Knot that Lauren + Kate’s Hidden Pond wedding had been selected as the Maine wedding for this year’s 50 States 50 Weddings feature. Aside from the excitement of seeing our work on The Knot, I can’t think of two people more deserving than Lauren + Kate. Here are a few of my favorite’s and links below to the awesome vendors who made the day possible. To anyone considering Hidden Pond – call me, immediately, I need more Maine wedding goodness in my life.

Spring wins. Especially spring at Maudslay.

A few of my favorites from a killer Maudslay State Park Engagement session with Hope and Nathan last month. These two absolutely destroyed it in front of the camera and I’m so excited to share this preview.

In the days leading up to this session it was really touch and go if it was even going to happen – the forecast was iffy (as spring in New England tends to be) and it was only in the last few hours that we decided to pull the trigger. I’m so glad we did – Maudslay was the best I’ve ever seen it, filled with bright spring colors, devoid of other people and the perfect engagement spot. After shooting in the park for a bit, we made our way downtown to finish the session as the sunset over Newburyport. I couldn’t have asked for a better way to close out a busy weekend in May.

North End + Christopher Columbus Park

I love my city. The variety from one session to another is so rich that no two engagement sessions in Boston are ever the same. Kim and Ben chose to start at Christopher Columbus Park and then make our way around the North End  on a warm Sunday evening earlier this spring. It feels like every time I find myself around this area it’s the dead of winter and pushing 10 degrees so this springtime session was a welcome change of pace for me and the North End.

After starting in the park, we wandered through the North End before wrapping up along the water. Within like five streets, the atheistic shifts from park, to city, to water. Can’t beat that. It was a blast catching up with Kim (RMHS for life) and getting to know Ben a bit more as we made our way around the city. As I post this, we are just about 1 year away from their wedding next June on the Cape. I can’t wait to do it all again!

Some post shoot reflections (mostly technical camera crap) – I’m falling hard for the 45mm tilt. It’s taken me some time to get the hang of it, and I still often forget its in my bag, but damn if it isn’t fun to shoot with. Between my tilt, my Sigma 24 Art and my Nikon 58 1.4 (more on that and the frustrating failures of my old Sigma 50 1.4 in a future post) I’m really feeling like I’ve found my sweet spot.

Love & Basketball.

Shooting weddings has brought some of the sweetest people in my orbit, people that I’d never know otherwise and be infinitely less off for it. Enter Timmy & Elisa. Their Tewksbury Country Club Wedding was all I ask for in a wedding day – full of laughter, love, and emotion (and Snapchat filters). Despite some oppressive heat (90 degrees in May is just cruel) these two and their awesome bridal party rolled with it. From the photos I don’t think you’d ever never know their wedding van had no A/C, haha.

After getting ready at their respective parent’s houses, they were married at St. Mary’s Church in Chelmsford. We shot bridal party photos down the street at Red Wing Farm and finally headed off to Tewksbury late in the afternoon. The reception was full of details unique to them – table numbers for each retired Celtics jersey for Timmy, wedding favors from Elisa’s candy shop in Concord, and signs and decor throughout the day declaring it the “Best Day Ever.” I won’t argue. These two deserved it and their day absolutely delivered.
