Jenna & Gerard: Married! | A Coastal Wedding in Danvers, MA

Jenna & Gerard, where to we even start?  These guys were a blast from the get-go.  I met Jenna a few years ago at a session I shot for her sister, Nicole, and since then we’ve been fast friends.  Jenna & Gerard totally understand Josh and my sarcastic sense of humor, and we do not stop laughing with these guys.  With Gerard being her calm force, and Jenna being the energizer bunny of energy, these two completely kept each other in check for a wonderfully fun celebration at the Danversport Yacht Club.  It was a day filled with tons of emotion, and nobody could hold back their smile throughout the day.  Even with thunder booming overhead during their ceremony, the storms knew to stay away, and leave room for one of the most beautiful sunsets of the year!  We are so happy to have been able to celebrate the start of something amazing with these two.

This is Alma, the coolest grandmother ever, who not only claimed that if Jenna didn’t watch out, she’d steal Gerard for herself, but also that she needed to make sure to get the perfect picture for her Instagram account!

We were so lucky to have such an amazing sunset – it is such a great time to be able to sneak away from your reception for a few minutes and take in how awesome it is that you’re married.

Diana & Alan: Engaged! | An Esplanade Engagement Session

Last week, we had the pleasure of meeting up with Diana & Alan for their engagement session.  This delightful duo joined us on a beautifully cool evening along the Esplanade.    Diana & Alan just get it.  From the way Diana’s face completely lights up when she looks at Alan, to the way that Alan hugs Diana so tightly, there’s no doubt that they work perfectly together.  It was a wonderful afternoon fading into a gorgeous evening, and we were so happy to be able to photograph two people with such open hearts.

After our session, we headed over to Park Plaza to have what turned out to be a delicious dinner from MJ O’Connors, but I couldn’t help but stop one more time for one last image, and I’m glad we did!  Diana & Alan, we are so, so excited for your wedding this October, we’ll have a blast!

Sara & Jeff: Engaged! | A Sachem Rock Farm Engagement Session

It’s so wonderful that no matter how many people we photograph, no matter how close to home, there are always new places to find.  Recently, we were introduced to Sachem Rock Farm in Bridgewater, a beautiful historic space with rolling greens, old wooden fences, and beautiful trees.  On top of having a beautiful background to work with, we were blessed with the amazing high school sweethearts, Sara & Jeff.  I’ve known Sara for quite a few years now, since she was one of the first people to volunteer as a model for me years ago, before I started photographing weddings.  Naturally, when she and Jeff met with us and decided we were the perfect fit for their Plimoth Plantation rustic wedding, we were totally doing the happy dance.  We met them down at the farm, and Jeff was kind enough to drive a borrowed 1927 Ford Model T all the way down for their shoot, and I’m now considering requiring an antique car for all engagement sessions! (I kid, but seriously, this thing is awesome.)  After spending some time with these guys, and seeing how absolutely natural they are in front of the camera (despite Sara’s claims otherwise!), we are beyond excited for their wedding next September!

Alaina & Jon: Married! | Gloucester, MA Coastal Wedding

A few weeks back, Josh and I found ourselves returning to Gloucester for Alaina & Jon’s wedding.  From the moment we walked in, we were treated like family, not only by Alaina & Jon, but by their families and friends as well.  We were so excited to finally meet their adorable son Caleb (seriously, this little guy is already a little Gap model), and right away, he and Josh were fast friends.  We started our day in Alaina’s room, where you could feel the excitement and buzzing from a mile away.  We were joined by another Josh as well on the videography, time the amazing Josh Rask from Clark + Walker Studios.  Let us tell you, Josh is a great team member, and we worked together flawlessly, even when time was less than on our side throughout the day! :)  There is something about Alaina & Jon that you can’t really put into words – they are both so content with each other, and happy to be a family.  Rather than me trying (unsuccessfully) to put what we’re trying to get at, let me just show you.

Alaina looked radiant in her gown – her eyes perfectly matched their ocean celebration.

Once we had everyone to Stage Fort Park, their intimate ceremony began, and nobody could hold back their emotions.  It was so wonderful to see these two families come together to celebrate a very wonderful couple.  I loved Alaina’s reaction when she finally got to Jon!

With everyone over the moon for Alaina & Jon, it was time for some quick and relaxed family portraits before we sent everyone off while we stole the happy couple for a few minutes before we let them run off to their celebration.

Diane & Chris: Married! | A North Shore Beach Wedding

We’ve known Diane & Chris since my very first wedding ever, when Chris was one of the many groomsmen at Jamie & Matt’s wedding.  Since then, we’ve gotten to know this group of friends well, and love seeing them a few times a year at everyone’s weddings!  Josh and I counted, and we had 6 of our couples all at this wedding!

Diane & Chris love the beach, so they had a beautiful array of corals and whites filling their decor, and opted to celebrate at the laid back Blue Ocean Music Hall on Salisbury beach.  We were especially excited to be in on the big secret of the day!   Diane is a dance teacher, so naturally, she had a first dance secretly choreographed as a huge surprise for everyone!  All of their guests were in awe of how beautifully they moved around the dance floor, and it was one for the books :)  I’m so happy to be sharing these images with you!
