Summer in Gloucester for a Wedding at the Beauport

You couldn’t avast for a better day to photograph a wedding. It’s very rare that everything comes together from the getting-ready photographs straight through to the last dance. I’m so glad that Shaun and Kassandra were able to get such an amazing day. What better place to host an event than the Beauport Hotel in Gloucester Massachusetts. Everything is so well thought out it makes it’s very easy for me to come in and do the photography. They chose to do some of the formal pictures at Bass Rocks. This is one of my favorite locations to photograph. The view speaks for itself. The rest of the evening was filled with fun and laughter. I’m so glad I was able to be part of the day.

Great Summer Wedding Birch Wood Vineyards

Having photographed Kyle and Brittany‘s engagement shoot as well as two of their bridal parties weddings, I knew we were in for a good day. They certainly did not disappoint. We started the day at the Hilton in Manchester New Hampshire. There is some beautiful light to work with for the portraits we did of them separately. You wouldn’t think that they would be such a beautiful vineyard on the main road in Derry New Hampshire but Birch Wood Vineyards pulled it off. There was such genuine emotion at the ceremony and throughout the day, that it made our jobs very easy to document it. We got a nice combination of some fun portraits that incorporated the environments as well as the documentary and situational photography that they were looking for. The rest of the evening was filled with fun and dancing. I’m so glad I was able to be part of the day.

Fall Wedding Dell Lea Chinchester

It would have been very easy for Ryan and Lorena to simply cancel their wedding due to Covid, and everyone would have completely understood. But they were not going to let anything get in the way of them sharing there special day with their friends and family. Even though they had to narrow down their guest list, they were left with only their closest friends and family.  It was evident by the emotion and love that those who were there truly wanted to part of the wedding. Having shot Ryan’s sister’s wedding, I knew we were in for a good day. They didn’t disappoint. From the getting ready shots, straight through to the last dance everyone was smiling and laughing the whole day through. It made our jobs very easy.

I have shot well over 1000 weddings in my life but have never been to Dell-Lea’s in Chichester, NH. It really lends itself amazingly to photography. Every direction you turn my camera there is an amazing background to work with. Whether it be the rustic porch and reception hall or the wide-open fields with the big blue skies, you simply can’t go wrong. We even had an amazing sunset to work with. This job is a whole lot easier when you genuinely like the people you’re photographing. I truly believe it shows in the photography.

Summer wedding at the Log Cabin in Holyoke

This job is a whole lot easier when you genuinely like the people you’re working with. It would be extremely hard to feel any other way about Nick. and Natalie. They were simply out there to have a great time at their wedding,  with all their closest friends and family. Although it is a bit of a way to get to the Log Cabin in Holyoke, it was well worth the drive. The mountain views and scenery are truly second to none. I can see why they would want to have their wedding add such a venue. We started the day with them getting ready at the same hotel but in different rooms. The light was simply amazing to work with and the bridal party was also having such a great time it made our jobs very easy. It was such a good idea to do the photography prior to the ceremony. This gave them as well as their family and bridal party the opportunity to enjoy the cocktail hour. We were able to get outside later in the evening for some really nice photography overlooking the mountains with a dramatic sky. The rest of the evening was filled with fun and dancing. I’m so glad I got the opportunity to be part of the day.

Fun Summer Wedding at the Villa

Bryan and Martin and I had zoomed and spoke to each other a couple of times. I knew after speaking with them that we were in for a great day. They did not disappoint. Everyone was there simply to have a good time and enjoyed being with each other. We started doing some getting-ready photography at the hotel where they had this beautiful lake that we could use as a background. It was such a good idea to do as much of the photography prior to the ceremony, so that they can get back in enjoy spending time with their friends and family during the cocktail hour. The ceremony had so much genuine emotion, it made my job very easy to simply stand back and document that part of the day. With so much rain that we’ve been getting it was a joy to be able to go out and get some photography later in the evening on the rustic bridge where the light was gorgeous. What better place to hose an event than The Villa in East Bridgwater. The rest of the evening was filled with fun and dance. I’m so happy I was able to be part of the day.
