Most couples would find it hard to imagine ending up on a beach in Gloucester, MA in January on the day of their wedding. But Rick and Shannon are not most couples. It takes a great deal of courage to brave the elements on the North Shore of Massachusetts in winter. It was a risk asking Rick and Shannon to leave the comfort of their Beauport Hotel rooms to venture out to the beach to get the photography I knew we could capture there. Thankfully, Rick and Shannon were not about to let the bitter wind of a Gloucester prevent them from getting the wedding photography they had dreamed of. Their reward for such bravery are some breathtaking images we could have only captured in this uniquely beautiful setting. I am always grateful for the opportunity to work with a bride and groom so committed to their wedding photography that try just about anything to get what they want.
