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!

Tell me these aren’t the most adorable ring bearers you ever did see.  Actually don’t – because I know you’d be lying :)

Jeff & Chris: Engaged! |A South Boston Sunrise Engagement Session

So we all love a good sunset, right?  Well last weekend, Jeff and Chris got together with Josh and I at an ungodly hour and decided to shoot their engagement session at the incredibly underrated sunrise, and we are so glad that we did.  Jeff & Chris spend a lot of their time in South Boston, where they call home, so we decided to head over to Castle Island.  This was such a wonderful morning with an amazing pair.  I’ve known Jeff for (gulp) 15 years, when we met in a massive lecture hall at UMass freshman year.  He always kept me laughing in our boring general education classes, so when he got in touch with us to say he and Chris were going to be getting married, and wanted us to photograph their day, I was jumping out of my seat!

While this pair grew up on opposite sides of the ocean from each other with Jeff in Massachusetts and Chris in Ireland, after they got to know each other, they realized their paths crossed more than they knew, with Chris’ cousins living in Jeff’s hometown!  Since then they’ve grown to be the perfect balance for each other. Both incredibly sweet, with Jeff being the cook and Chris handling the bar, they enjoy everything in life.  We had such a wonderful time at their session and enjoying a leisurely Sunday morning breakfast in their beautiful roof deck garden.  Here are some of our favorites from their session!

Jeff & Chris, thank you so much for making a 3am wake up call worth it!  We had a wonderful time with you, and cannot wait for your wedding this November!

Alaina & Jon: Engaged! | A Gloucester Engagement Session

We’re thrilled to be sharing these images with you because Alaina and Jonathan are getting married TOMORROW! These guys completely knocked their session out of the park.  We were so excited to finally meet Alaina and Jon after having chatted throughout their crazy busy planning process.  Not only does Alaina commute almost 100 miles every day to teach, they have a little one at home who is probably one of the happiest babies you’ve ever seen (do you hear that, Gerber?).  Alaina & Jon love being near the water, so we decided to meet at her mom’s home in Gloucester, and shoot in her Magnolia neighborhood.  Without question, Alaina and Jon climbed and balanced on the cliffs overlooking the ocean with us, and took in the amazing view.  Top all of that off with a glorious sunset down at Magnolia Beach and Pier (where I’m happy to report that this visit to the pier didn’t end in a concussion for Alaina!), and you’ve got two very lucky photographers :)

We are so thankful that they put their complete trust in us, and enjoyed every second of having a little mini date before their wedding. It has gotten us so excited to see them again tomorrow, where we’ll return to some new cliffs and get to shoot with them all over again!

I love the tide pools we found – we could have sat around them and chatted for hours (or at least until the tide came in!).

Kathryn & Phil: Engaged! | A Larz Anderson Engagement Session

It’s pretty great when mother nature gets her act together for an engagement session.  We met Kathryn & Phil for their relaxed Larz Anderson engagement session, and with perfect views around the top of the hill, we had a great time making some fun portraits.  Both being engineers, both Kathryn & Phil let us stretch a little bit outside of our usual style and play around a bit with some lighting as the sun dipped behind the trees, and it paid off!

Coming from my old finance world background, it was fun being able to appreciate the nuances of the techy side of things, and joking about little details that most wouldn’t give a second thought, like when Phil told us how proud he was that he didn’t have to lie at all the day he proposed to Kathryn. (Bear with me, I know that sounds strange!) When the two went out to try a new restaurant in town, their waitress asked if there was any special occasion for dinner.  Kathryn looked and Phil and jokingly asked “yeah, you don’t have a ring in your pocket or anything, do you?” Phil smirked and said “nope, empty pockets here!”  What Kathryn didn’t know was that while Phil didn’t have a ring in his pocket, he did have one waiting for them to arrive back at home.   You’re pretty sneaky there, Phil!

Here are some of our favorites from our time with these two!

Christine & Matt: Engaged! | An Arnold Arboretum Engagement Session

Sometimes, you meet a couple, and without a doubt, they unquestionably make sense together.  Christine and Matt are one of those couples.  From the moment they met with me and Josh, we both knew they would be so much fun to work with. Christine & Matt like to laugh.  A lot.  We met up with them at the Arnold Arboretum, and spent our entire session laughing, so much so that our cheeks hurt towards the end!

Christine & Matt met online, and their first date was, shall we say, a bit delayed.  Christine lived in Worcester at the time, and having not been out that way in quite some time, Matt may or may not have grossly underestimated rush hour traffic, and may or may not have made some poor decisions on his choice of driving route.  With location updates every twenty minutes assuring her that he was most definitely not standing her up, Matt finally arrived to Christine, and admitted that when he walked in, he caught his breath when he realized not only was she beautiful, but she had patiently waited two hours for him to arrive.  Christine jokes that she will never let Matt make her wait that long for him again, but was certainly glad she did that night :)  The two hit it off like best friends, and the rest is history!

Here are a few of our favorites from their session!
