Fall wedding Zukas Hilltop Barn

There is no better time of year to photograph at Zukas hilltop barn then fall. Jake and Amanda were the perfect couple to shoot in  such a location. There rustic lifestyle from the bridesmaids wearing cowboy boots to the bride rolling up to the venue in a pick up truck, Even their choice of where to get ready in a modern day log cabin set the mood for the entire day. You can see all their friends and family where they’re feeding off of the emotion and genuinely we’re having a great time being around each other. It was very important for them to include their three kids in the day. I’m so glad they did as they were all just amazing to photograph. The photography was a nice combination of fun portraiture as well as a lot of documentary And situational moments. I’m so happy they chose me as their photographer.

Backyard Jewish Wedding Arlington

This job is a whole lot easier when really like the people you’re working with. Scott and Martha truly enjoy being with each other and their friends and family. It is evident by being around them and the imagery that I was able to put together for them. With everything going on in the world, we have been forced to socially distance and as a result, have fewer people at our weddings. This means the people who share in your day are those who truly love you most. It creates a much more intimate day. I enjoy photographing Jewish weddings as there is so much tradition from the breaking of the glass, signing of the Ketubah, and wearing a kippah. There is always something interesting to photograph. We chose to do the photography of the two of them at Robbins- Park in Arlington looking over the Boston skyline. It is a great place and fits with their personalities well. I’m so happy I was able to be part of their day.

Winter snow wedding Gibbet Hill

I’ve always had a great deal if respect for my winter brides. I’ve yet to meet anyone who can compete with there resolve and enthusiasm for photography, not to mention these brave women face the elements in wedding dresses and stilettos! Being from the northeast, I’m no stranger to winter; however, these brides have me beat. And James and Rebecca was no exception. There wasn’t a temperature too low that would stop her from getting the unique, fun, and interesting wedding photography they wanted for their wedding day. And what better place than the Gibbet Hill in Groton MA to set the backdrop for some really exciting photos.

Josh and Jen’s backyard lake wedding Westford

Sometimes when I am at a wedding I think I’m there more as a guest than a photographer. Josh and Jen,s wedding was like that for me. With everything going on in the world I have photographed quite a few smaller backyard weddings. The result of which is your forced to limit your guest list to those who are most important to you and are there to show you as much love and fun as you can have in one day. One of their family members has an amazing Lakehouse that they were gracious enough to allow them to hold the wedding there. It made my job as a photographer a whole lot easier to work with such a unique space. Having to plan a wedding is difficult enough but I have to do it twice and then deal with the obstacle of rain, would have discouraged any couple. They were simply not going to let anything get in the way of them having a phenomenal wedding. I was so happy that I could be part of it.

Summer wedding Zukas Hilltop Barn

We couldn’t have asked for a better day to have an outdoor wedding at Zukas Hilltop Barn in Spencer MA. It’s very rare that the getting ready, ceremony, formals and reception all come together without a hitch. That was however the case for Ryan and Sammie‘s wedding. We even got an amazing sunset.

 They wanted to do a lot of fun and creative photography which is what I enjoy most about my work. As many people know who have children, you work on their schedule. It seems all the kids were having just as much fun as everyone else and were happy to be in the photographs whenever we need them to. 

Because we did a lot of the photography of the groomsmen and bridesmaids prior to the ceremony we could concentrate on doing family and pictures of Ryan and Sammie during the cocktail hour. With the extra time and such a unique space we really got a lot of great imagery to work with. The rest of the evening was filled with laughter, fun and dancing. i’m so happy they chose me as there photographer.
