Great Summer Wedding Harrington Farm

When you work with a couple who is as appreciative and nice as Karl and Liz, it allows you to be a lot more creative with the photography. They wanted to do a lot of these nice candid loving moments as well as some shots of them with more dramatic lighting. A place like Harrington Farm lends itself nicely to this style. The weather complied with some nice lights and a gorgeous sunset and the evening. Everything came together from the getting ready Straight through to the end of the evening. Everyone was genuinely having such a good time they made us feel like we were more of a guest then a vendor.

Summer Wedding Wedgewood Pines Stow, MA

The more I do this job the more I realize it’s all about the people. Having all your friends and family gathered in the same place, all looking good together, it would be hard not to get great emotional photography. Andrew and Nicole’s wedding was exactly that. Everyone was so happy and welcoming, it made our jobs very easy.

It has been a couple of years since I’ve shot at Wedgewood Pines. It made me realize how much I missed photographing there. What’s so nice about it from a photographers standpoint is that everything is so close. You can turn in one direction and get a sunset and water, turn the opposite way and you have an interesting stone wall, keep turning and you can’t shoot on a hill with gorgeous white puffy clouds. It was fun to incorporate Andrews love for golf in some photography, even if he was putting with a lefty club as a righty. Everything came together so smoothly from the getting ready straight through to the last dance. A great time was had by all.

Jon and Joy wedding at Peirce Farm in Topsfield MA

 

If you find yourself driving along a stretch of route 1 in Topsfield MA, not far from the fairgrounds, you might catch a glimpse of a beautifully maintained Dutch farmhouse and barn. This diamond among the rough wooded landscape is Peirce Farm. This historic estate turned wedding venue is one of my new favorite locations to shoot. What makes it so unique is, in addition to breathtaking scenery, is the estate’s painstakingly preserved history. Throughout the farmhouse, the curious photographer will find heirlooms of the past that make for interesting props. The natural light spilling from massive windows into every room creates an ethereal glow, perfect for portraits of the bride and the groom. It’s for all of these reasons and more, I was so excited to be documenting Jon and Joy’s entire wedding day on the grounds of Peirce Farm. From getting ready all the way to their last dance in the perfectly restored barn, everything took place at Peirce Farm. Because it offers everything one could need and want, the day went so smoothly that Jon and Joy could focus on the happy events as the unfolded. Everyone was happy and celebratory mood.  Even Gloria the farm chicken could not stay away and took a moment to create some fun and interesting wedding photography.

Kieran and Allison’s Wedding at Plimoth Plantation in Plymouth, MA

You know a couple was just meant to be when they had to travel half way around the world just to meet. This is how Kieran and Allison’s love story began. They were just two young adventurous spirits who were traveling to a far off land for different reasons, neither of them knowing they would find each other when the reached their destination. It was in the country of Tanzania where Kieran met Allison. Kieran being from Chicago, and Allison from Massachusetts, distance could have ironically threatened their budding relationship. But worlds could not stop these soulmates from ultimately being together and building the life they were meant to have. I consider myself fortunate to have been the wedding photographer to document this most important day in their incredible story. They had chosen Plimoth Plantation as the location for their wedding day, appropriate since Kieran is a bit of a history buff. But it was not history that took place there that day, but rather a glimpse into this amazing couple’s beautiful future together.

Danny and Megan’s Royal Sonesta Wedding in Cambridge, MA

As the cold of winter fades, everyone is anxiously awaiting the telltale signs of spring hoping for the promise of warmer days to come. The days grow longer, flowers begin to bloom, and wedding season gets into full swing. As a wedding photographer, with spring comes a renewed sense of creativity and a strong desire to get back to work. So, how could I not share Danny and Megan’s excitement about going to the iconic Boston Gardens on an incredibly warm afternoon in early April to capture their wedding photography? Danny and Megan could not have asked for a better day to celebrate their Royal Sonesta wedding. Seeing as it was the first warm weather of the season, and just a couple of days before Boston’s historic marathon, Danny and Megan got to enjoy their wedding day along with what seemed like every last person in Boston. Yet, true to the city’s spirit, each and every person we encountered was eager to share their joy and wish the happy couple well.  A few of the locals were even very enthusiastic about helping to get some really fun and creative images of Danny and Megan for they wedding photography. It was a beautiful day to celebrate this beautiful couple in this most beautiful of cities, and the perfect start to the 2019 wedding season.
