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.

Winter wedding at Harrington in Princeton

One of the best things about shooting at Harrington Farm is that no matter what season you are bound to get great photography. There was no better couple to photograph for me in that season other than Javier and Paige. Not many brides would be willing to be out in the winter in a sleeveless dress with temperatures approaching subzero. This job is a whole lot easier when you really enjoy the people you’re photographing. Having known that they are really into photography, I wanted to be as creative as fun with the imagery as I could. It was nice to be able to start at their home in Randolph. It allowed us to photograph some friends and family who would not be able to come to the wedding due to Covid restrictions. Despite the fact we were limited to 10 guests, you wouldn’t have known it was any different than most weddings. Those family members who were there to share in there they truly wanted to be part of it. You could see this by the love and emotion they brought. You can tell as an outsider how much they truly joy being around each other. I’m so happy I was able to be part of the day.

Spring Wedding Oceanview Nahant

One of the best parts of being a wedding photographer is not only that you get to be part of a couple’s most important day, but you get to experience their traditions and cultures. Maged and Rasha spent their childhood in the Middle East, specifically Egypt and Iran. They incorporated a lot of their culture into the wedding. It’s not every day you get to photograph a belly dancer holding a sword. We started out in Danvers to do some photography of them getting ready. They held their ceremony at. St. George’s church in Lynn. There is such amazing architecture and detail to incorporate into the photography. Having done their engagement shoots, I knew that they wanted to do a lot of fun photography. What better place to host an event than Oceanview in Nahant. We were able to include views of the harbor as well as the sunsets. The rest of the evening was filled with dance and fun. I’m so glad I was able to be part of their day.

Fun fall wedding at Avenir in Walpole

I knew we were gong to be in for a great day, having shot the brides cousin’s wedding. They did not disappoint. It was the perfect day for the perfect wedding.I really enjoy working with a couple who know what they want and can easily communicate their expectations. This was Anthony and Nichole. They not only had a very clear vision for their wedding photography, but they were one hundred percent in agreement with each other. Working with these two took all of the guess work and anxiety out of the day, which left me plenty of opportunities to take their vision and run with it. As far as locations go, I couldn’t have asked for better to capture the fall in New England images they had wanted for their wedding. We started the day at their home and a hotel both bride and groom getting ready. From there, we traveled Francis William Bird Park. Though I have shot in Walpole many times, this was my first time at there. I can’t thank them enough for introducing me to this place. It is gorgeous. After getting some really beautiful formals of them, their families, and bridal party. We headed to Blessed Sacrament Church to exchanged vows against a backdrop of the awe inspiring. Afterwards we all celebrated in style and elegance thanks to the excellent and experienced staff at the Avenir. They have done a phenomenal job renovating the space with such class and elegance. Everything came together from the getting ready straight through to the last dance. It was the perfect compliment of photojournalistic and traditional wedding photography.

Great John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum Wedding Boston

The JFK Museum in South Boston is one of the premier venues to host a wedding. There is some of the best views of the Boston skyline, great lighting and amazing architecture to work with. Although the winds picked up off the water we were all happy that the rains from hurricane Dorian didn’t wash out the day. Everything seem to pass just in time to allow for us to get some amazing sunset shots. We started doing some getting ready shots early in the day to allow us enough time to get back and enjoy the cocktail hour. Emily and the bridesmaids were not going to let a little wind get in the way of doing some photography outside. Having done their engagement shoot I knew they wanted to wanted to do some fun shots along with intimate moments. The ceremony took place in a gorgeous room looking over the city. A Jewish wedding has so many fun and interesting customs, from the signing of the ketuba, breaking of the glass and a hora. The rest of the evening was filled with sentimental and funny toast, great food and a packed dance floor. It seems you always get a great vibe with a band. Everyone was having such a great time it made our jobs very easy.
