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.

Wedding Photography Copley Fairmont

This job is a whole lot easier when you like the people you are photographing. Marc and Jenn were so laid back and easy to work with it truly made me feel more like a guest at the wedding. With everything going on in the world they had to reschedule their wedding from a bigger New Years’ Eve wedding to a smaller more intimate wedding. One of the trade off’s of having a smaller wedding is the people who are there truly want to be part of the day and it is evident by the love and desire to make the day special for them.
Everything came together so smoothly. You roll the dice in November with the weather. It came up big for them. It was great for me that they wanted to do some fun creative photography. Not many couples would want to shoot with the sausage vendor. What better place to host an event then the Copley Fairmont in Boston. It was a great combination of documentary and portrait photography. I was so happy to be part of the day.

David and Tammy Fall wedding

David and Tammy were simply not going to let a pandemic get in the way of them getting married. You can see from their interaction with each other and all their friends and family, that they were going to do everything they could to make it happen. As evidence of the images they succeeded. You can see they truly enjoy being around each other with the fun that they have together. It was so nice to be able to incorporate their home and church into the images. The photography was a nice combination of fun portraiture as well as a lot of documentaries And situational moments. I’m so happy they chose me as their photographer.

Allen and Lindsay Snow and Foliage Harrington Farm Wedding.

It would have been very easy for Allen and Lindsay 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 their 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.

To say it mildly, it has certainly been an odd year. Why would the weather be any different? It is not often we snow and foliage in the same day. Like everything else, they just rolled with it. As far as photography, it made for such a great backdrop. There are not to many brides who are going venture out into the snow with open toe shoes and a wedding dress. If Lindsay was going to make that effort, I knew I had to do the same. What better place to host such a wedding than Harrington Farm. Everything came together from the getting ready, straight through to the last dance. I was so happy I was part of the day.

Pete and Ashley’s Cape Cod Wedding in Dennis Port, MA

Working as a full time wedding photographer in the year of 2020 has presented many new challenges one could have never imagined before. The most difficult for me has been adjusting to a year mostly without weddings. There is such joy and excitement working in this field, and it honestly never gets old. I guess if there is one downside to having tremendous job satisfaction is how much you miss it when a year like this comes along. Most of my 2020 clients had to reschedule their painstakingly planned celebrations for much later than they imagined. Many of them had to do so twice. Pete and Ashley were among the first on my calendar for the season, and therefore among the first to reach out about needing to reschedule. Ultimately, though, Pete and Ashley were determined to be married this year, whatever hurdles they would have to face or precautions they would have to take. I remain in awe of Ashley’s steely resolve in making this 2020 wedding happen. She was able to plan a beautiful and intimate Cape Cod wedding in record breaking time, while keeping to the tight limitations imposed on group gatherings. No one could have been more excited to participate in the day than I, well except for maybe Pete and Ashley I suppose. It was the much needed retreat back to the way things were if even for this one day, and a happy reminder of how things were and will soon be again.
