Matt and Hannah Jewish wedding at the Saphire Estate

Driving into meet Matt and Hannah at the hotel I Started to see raindrops accumulating on the windshield. Looking at the radar, The Saphire Estate was in direct line for a major thunderstorm. Most brides would have been on edge or losing their minds, the exact opposite was true. They both had such a great outlook on the day that nothing was going to prevent them from having a blast at their wedding. The one benefit of being under overcast skies is that you can shoot in flat soft even lighting,  This allows you to be a lot more creative with the photography. Which is exactly the type of photos they wanted.  The Jewish ceremony has so many unique customs and traditions that you can always get great imagery and emotion. Just as the ceremony was about to start the storm shifted north and opened up the skies for an amazing sunset to shoot over Lake Massapoag. All the details were so well thought out to make the space there own. How many weddings do you get to use typewriters and books as props?  It was evident to see that Hannah had studied dance by the way she moved around the floor, having said that, Matt was not going to be upstaged when he and his groomsmen were out there. All in all it was an amazing day, For a great couple.

Paul and Jillian amazing wedding at Birchwood Vineyards

It’s very rare that I get an opportunity to photograph three siblings weddings. Each one was unique in their own special way. The only thing I knew for sure is that we were in for a great day. They never seem to disappoint.  Paul and Jillian we’re just such a nice, appreciative, laid-back couple that it made the photography more genuine. Both the ceremony and reception took place at Birchwood Vineyards.  The space was so meticulously done up that every direction we faced we could get great imagery. The had vineyards on outside and a very rustic decor on the inside. Both families simply knew how to have a good time. The dance floor was packed from the first song to the last.

Mike and Erin Willowbend Wedding Mashpee

When you book a Friday wedding on the Cape during the summer you assume you’re going to be in for a long day. The opposite couldn’t have been more true. We were having such a great time, the day simply flew by. Having photographed the brides sisters wedding I knew for sure we were going to get some fun photography and a great dance floor. Mike and Erin really enjoyed being with each other. As a photographer it makes the imagery so much more genuine. Willowbend country club has such an amazing backdrop to a cloud cover that made some dramatic photography. The rest the evening flowed so smoothly I felt more like I was a guest then working. The entire dance floor was packed from the beginning of the night to the end.

Garrett and Allie wedding at Cruiseport

With all the rain that we’ve been having it was an absolute pleasure to be outside photographing Garrett and Allies wedding., and when you’re outside on such a gorgeous day there’s no better place to be than in Gloucester Massachusetts around the water. We started at the Beauport Hotel to do some getting ready photographs and the first look. To be honest, I was a little reluctant at first to do the pictures at Stage Fort Park as I was concerned there might be a lot of people there on such a nice day, But even that worked out perfectly for us. We were able to get so much fun Photography of the bridal party and family is in a short period of time. The ceremony and reception took place at Cruiseport. All the details were so well thought out that it allowed us to concentrate on creating some fun and unique images. The longer I do this, the more I realize it’s all about the people. This job is so much more fun when you genuinely like the people you’re working with. Everyone at Garrett and Allie’s wedding we’re just out there to have a good time. I truly believe the photography reflects this.

Mike and Lauren fun summer wedding Zukas

For me as a photographer the three key ingredients into a great wedding. The people, the space and the lighting. We couldn’t of had a better combination of these things at Mike and Lauren wedding. They were simply a fun group who were out there to have a good time. It would be easy to say that Zukas hilltop barn speaks for itself but the place has so much character that anyway you point the camera you have something interesting to photograph. Even though we were shooting in the afternoon, there was a very intimate haze and some gorgeous dusk light to work with. It was a really nice combination of intimate fun photography that encompass the people, the space and the light.
