Meredith & Justin: Married! | Private Backyard Cape Cod Wedding A Home Grown Perfect Day.

Sometimes while I’m photographing a wedding, I look around and want to pinch myself because I can’t believe that this is my job.  From the moment Josh and I arrived, you could feel the excitement in the air, and I knew that Meredith & Justin’s day was going to be one of those days.  This was a wedding like no other, where absolutely every last detail was handmade by friends and family, with so much thought and love.  Meredith did not stop smiling from ear to ear the entire day, and Justin would look at Meredith with the most adorable puppy dog eyes.  The couple spent their mornings getting ready for the day right where Meredith grew up, with Justin just across the lawn at the adorable bed and breakfast, Scargo Manor next door to her childhood home and parents amazing restaurant, The Red Pheasant.  Meredith’s sisters did her hair and makeup, she wore borrowed family jewelry, a beautifully simple gown, and carried a bouquet of cut flowers grown from her mom’s garden.  I have to admit, I didn’t want this wedding to end!

I loved the tweed vests the guys wore – they all looked just fabulous, and they perfectly melded with the lakeside garden setting.

Meredith & Justin opted for a first look with each other, so they could have some time together before the day got away from them, and so they could spend the rest of their day celebrating with all of their guests.  We hopped over to a neighbors house across the street to find a quiet space for the two to see each other for the first time.  It was awesome.  Justin couldn’t contain his excitement, and Meredith was glowing.  It makes me so happy when my couples take time for themselves and are 100% in the moment.

Meredith’s favorite flower from her mom’s garden is the foxglove (which is mine too!), and while they weren’t in season, one single stem held on through the wedding.

When Meredith & Justin signaled they were ready to take some portraits, we took full advantage of the space we had, between stone walls, barns, tall grasses, and a quick walk over to where Meredith used to walk her dog, which just so happens to be a beautiful sheep field.

When we finished up, we invited the bridal party to join in the fun before we headed off to the ceremony back at the lake!

This was one of my all time favorite ceremonies.  With readings from some of their best friends, Justin’s brother, Kris, playing the saxophone as Meredith made her way down the aisle to the lake, and personal wedding vows for each other, it was filled with love, laughter, smiles, and tears.

After the ceremony, we took a few quick family photos, a few more portraits by the lake, and off we went to celebrate!

I loved that everything at the reception was personal, from the garden flowers, jars from the restaurant, name cards written by Meredith’s aunt, and the tree stumps that were from the forest where Meredith does her research.

After dinner, the couple and their friends headed to the tent to dance the night away as the rain rolled through.

Meredith & Justin (and your friends and family!), you just get it.  You make me smile, and smiling is my favorite.

Kate & Mike: Married! | A Pinehills Golf Club Wedding in Plymouth, MA | Cape Cod Wedding Photographer

At the end of August, I photographed Kate & Mike’s wedding – from the moment I met them, I knew we would get along beautifully, and I was right.  When they first left my cozy little office, I looked at Josh and said, so, I’m pretty sure that I’ll be photographing our own wedding next year.  Not only did Kate & Mike share my love for Excel, but Mike and Josh are two peas in a pod, and speak in Seinfeld quotes.  We had way too much fun at their engagement session, to the point where I had to say, ok guys, we have to take some photos too!  On top of all of that, their wedding day, with the exception of the church itself almost perfectly mirrored my own, with stops at the John Carver Inn, Brewster Gardens (make sure to get your permit if you want to shoot there!), and a super fun reception at Pinehills Golf Club.

Joined by my awesome colleague Kristen Jordan and trusty assistant and husband Josh, we started our day with the boys (it’s always a smart idea to have everyone getting ready close by to each other, to give you a little bit more leeway on your big day).  We arrived just as Mike was opening a gift from Kate.  He apologized to us afterwards for his tears, but I put the kibosh on that quickly.  It was one of the most touching quiet moments I’ve seen a groom have on his wedding day.

I loved this ceremony – nobody held back their emotion, and everywhere I looked was someone smiling ear to ear, giggling, or shedding a tear or two.  It’s so wonderful to see everyone just completely happy.

Amanda & Lee: Married! | Sugarbush Resort Wedding A Fall Vermont Wedding at Sugarbush Resort

Happy Monday, friends! Fall is here, and I kicked off the fall season with a wedding that is a very special one in my heart.  Last year, my cousin Lee and his fiancé Amanda (you’ll remember them from their super cute engagement session) came over to our house and asked me and Josh to both play a big role in their wedding.  Josh was one of Lee’s groomsmen, and Amanda asked if I would be the one to document their day.  I was absolutely honored that they gave me their complete trust,  and while thunderstorms ran through the mountains and over Sugarbush Resort on their wedding day, it didn’t matter.  Amanda and Lee are some of the most kind and gentle souls, and every single person couldn’t help but smile for them, all day long.  I had my awesome friend and colleague Elaine Donohue with me for the day (who is now an honorary family member!),  who took over later in the evening for me while I transitioned from photographer to guest.  But enough chatter from me, let’s get to what you came here for!   Image by Caroline Talbot Photography | www.ctalbotphoto.com Image by Caroline Talbot Photography | www.ctalbotphoto.com Image by Caroline Talbot Photography | www.ctalbotphoto.com Image by Caroline Talbot Photography | www.ctalbotphoto.com Image by Caroline Talbot Photography | www.ctalbotphoto.com I adored this antique pendant that Amanda found to wear in her hair.

Dana & Alec: Engaged! | Dedham Massachusetts Wedding Photographer A Hometown Engagement Session in Dedham Square

Dana and Alec are self-admittedly on the sillier side, and I was able to witness the two of them being so adorable with each other last week during their engagement session!  Not only was I excited for a beautiful afternoon, but we spent our time together walking around Dedham Square, since the two of them both live here, and will be celebrating their wedding at the beautiful Endicott Estate next August.  It’s not often that my drive to both an engagement and a wedding is under 4 minutes!  These two know how to make each other laugh, and are so genuinely adorable.  There were many giggle fits to be had, and I cannot wait until next year to do it all over again at their wedding!

Erica & Rob: Married! | Quincy Massachusetts Wedding

Erica & Rob are so absolutely caring, not only towards each other, but towards every single person around them.  Erica is a Texas girl filled with Southern charm, and Rob is a Quincy boy who is always surrounded by his wonderful family and friends.  This doctor and nurse pair met while both of them were volunteering in Haiti after the devastating earthquake in 2010, and were instantly drawn to each other’s giving nature.  Even living two thousand miles apart couldn’t shake these two, and on a cold wintery day in Quincy, Rob asked Erica to be his wife.  I was joined my my lovely colleague Kat Hanafin for the day, and on more than one occasion, we both said that it almost didn’t feel like we were at a wedding, because there was just no stress during the day.  Erica & Rob have a way of simply rolling with the day, and were 100% focused on enjoying a wonderful celebration with their friends and family.
