Tracy & Ashley: Married! | A Royal Sonesta Boston Wedding

Where do I even begin with how much we love Tracy & Ashley?  After knowing them as great next door neighbors, then as amazing clients, we can’t say enough wonderful things about this pair.  I think we laughed more than we photographed (okay, that’s an exaggeration, but we seriously didn’t stop laughing all day).  Everything about this wedding was so personal.  From their amazing ceremony officiated by their close friend (who couldn’t help but burst into both tears and laughter at the same time), to some incredibly hysterical toasts, to an energetic dance party complete with an intense limbo competition, it was a blast from start to finish.  They’re a perfect example of how to enjoy your wedding day, and forget about the rest.

I love how both Ashley & Tracy both fell into a complete fit of laughter as they got to the end of the aisle.

At the end of the evening, we had to sneak the Mrs. and Mrs. away for a few quick portraits with the evening skyline and their killer party shoes.  Thank you again for having us – we can’t wait to see where the rest of this crazy adventure of life takes you!

Amanda & Derek: Married! | A Preston Ridge Vineyard Wedding

I don’t think Amanda and Derek could have dreamed up a more perfect wedding day if they wanted to.  From the picture perfect setting at Preston Ridge Vineyard, to beautiful skies filled with the perfect amount of fluffy white clouds, to their incredible friends and family who were so amazing and warm, a fiery sunset, all topped of with a visit from the local ice cream truck, there wasn’t a single thing anyone could have asked for.  I am so lucky to know this incredible couple, and know there is a lifetime of happiness awaiting them!

Jennifer & Jerry: Married! | A Wychmere Beach Resort Wedding

May and June have been a whirlwind of shooting, and we are so excited to start sharing with you!  Wedding season is in full effect, you guys.  We kicked off our busiest season yet with Jen & Jerry down at Wychmere Beach Club this year, and they totally set the bar high for summer weddings!  Not only was every detail perfectly planned, but these guys enjoyed every second of the day.  We had no doubt we would have fun at their wedding, considering how much fun we had during the planning process with them and at their engagement session last fall, and they did not disappoint.  Even little Zeus made an appearance while Jen was getting ready!  They planned their day with enjoying it in mind, rather than checking all the boxes of what you are supposed to be doing, and we were so thrilled to be there to capture it all.  This is a long one folks, so take some of your Friday lunch break to relax with this awesome couple!

How adorable is Jen’s reaction to realizing the ridiculousness of hiding behind a robe, waiting to getting dressed in a room needing the help of no less than 10 people, along with someone documenting the whole ordeal?

This crew knew how to PARTY. From the second the music started (and before they even made it out of their chairs!), this group was dancing, and did not let up until the very last song.

Jen & Jerry, thank you so much for having us with you on your wedding day – we are so happy that not only did we document an incredible wedding, but we have two new lifelong friends!

Allison & Keith: Engaged! | A Quintessential Boston Engagement Session

Nothing makes us happier than photographing the friends and family of our past couples (other than maybe photographing our couples again and again, but this allows us to do just that!).  Allison found us through Heather and MacLean (check out their wedding for our only non Jewish wedding to date that had a Horah!) – Allison’s brother is married to Heather’s sister, and we’re so happy to be reunited with this amazing family again, along with adding Keith and his family into the mix!  These two totally get each other, and did not stop laughing the entire time (particularly at how much we joked that Keith seemed to love making out with Allison in public!).  Their absolutely adorable pup, Kip, joined us for the first half of the session, and we walked from their apartment over to Paul Revere Park,  where they spend their limited family time together.  They both have an insane work ethic (Allison is a resident at Mass General and Keith works in technology and is getting a second degree at Harvard), so needless to say, any time they spend together is pretty awesome.

Apparently with these guys, the “family hug” is a thing.  Kip got a little overzealous with his PDA.

All joking aside, how awesome are these two?

After taking Kip home to relax for the evening, we headed to the Esplanade where Keith popped the question.  The sun drenched the charles river shores with crazy beautiful light, and we took full advantage (along with taking a quick break to wait for the sun to go down a little more and check on Kip via puppycam!).

Alisha & Joel: Engaged! | A Good Harbor Beach Engagement Session

So you’re back to work after Memorial Day weekend, probably lamenting how long a 4 day week always feels, and hoping that your 11am second coffee break can slowly just bleed into lunch.  Your boss won’t notice, right?  Enjoy your caffeine that’s making it through your Monday version of Tuesday, and head on back to the beach with Alisha & Joel’s engagement session!

Joel and Alisha met while both of them played ultimate frisbee at MIT.  The two of them both have an amazing sense of humor, an awesome pup named Ginny, and are proud geeks (cheers to geeks being cool!).  Their love may have started to blossom at some point shortly after Alisha (rightfully) claimed she could karate kick empty cups off of Joel’s head.  Although we haven’t personally witnessed it, it’s no doubt amazing.  Per usual, we spent lots of time laughing during the session, and exploring one of Gloucester’s most amazing beaches together! We can’t wait for their Lincoln Pierce House wedding this September!
