I came to know and admire Michael and Roseline after their unique engagement shoot. It was my first experience combining a couple’s engagement shoot with a family shoot. That is when I realized that their wedding was not just about Michael and Roseline becoming husband and wife, it was the coming together of a beautiful blended family. It was abundantly clear to me in the few short hours I spent with Michael, Roseline, Tia, and Javier that the love and care they have for each other is remarkably genuine. I could not help but feel privileged to photograph this family during such an important time in their lives. They are also some of the kindest people I have had the pleasure to work with, and was even invited to lunch with them. On the day of the wedding, it was such a joy to be in the company of these incredible people. Like the engagement shoot, Michael and Roseline took immense care to place a great deal of emphasis on their family. Both Javier and Tia walked their mother down the aisle and handed her off to Michael at the alter. During their version of a sand ceremony, each family member participated in the symbolic union. It was a beautiful and intimate outdoor ceremony that took place at on the grounds of Harrington Farm in Princeton, MA. I could not have chosen a more perfect setting to capture the wedding photography for this endearing couple and their memorable family.
