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.

Summer Wedding at the Villa

This job is a whole lot easier when you genuinely like the people you’re photographing. Michael and Andrea were so laid-back and easy to work with made me feel like I was more of a guest at their wedding than anything else. After having to plan their wedding three times due to Covid, a lot of couples would have chose to forgo the wedding. They were not going to deny their friends and family the opportunity to enjoy the best day of their lives together. We started early to do some photography of them separately. We then headed to the Ames public library. It is such a unique and great space to shoot. We then headed to The Villa to spend the rest of the day. What better place to host an event? We did all the photography prior to the ceremony so that they can get back to enjoy their own cocktail hour. We were fortunate enough to be able To get a really nice sunset. The rest of the day was filled with fun and dancing. I was so happy to be able to be part of the day. I am confident the imagery reflects how much they truly enjoy being with each other.

Fun Summer Wedding at Zukas Hilltop Barn

At some weddings, you feel like you’re there as a guest more so than just being the photographer. Matt and Jenn and all their friends and family made me feel so comfortable I could be a lot more creative and fun with the photography because of it. Everything took place at Zukas Hilltop Barn in Spencer Massachusetts. It is truly one of my favorite places to shoot. Everywhere your turn there is a great backdrop to work with. We started doing some getting-ready shots at the spa. There is such a great light to work within that space. The ceremony was filled with genuine emotion and the rest of the evening continued with fun and laughter. Photographing a wedding like this reinforces why a truly enjoy choosing this as a profession. I am so happy I was able to be part of their day.
