The sky is literally the limit, so this can be a pandora’s box situation for couples getting married today. With limitless options of how to celebrate your wedding, the one commonality between weddings we see executed with greatness whittles down to one thing: personalization. Finding elements that add to the celebration in a meaningful and beautiful way always works. Andi + Alex did this with ease and style. They decided to get married in a quaint little church on the outskirts of the Twin Cities and bring along their dearest friends and family. A procession of classic cars waited for the wedding party after the ceremony where they made a getaway for the backyard reception. Instead of the traditional layout for a wedding reception, Andi and Alex did things their way. The evening was filled with numerous musicians, food stations, an endless tap of Bud Lite and BBQ from a Food Truck. Oh, and there were also Wedding Sausages! Guests mixed and mingled by the bonfire enjoying each others company and hugging the newlyweds. The evening ended with a fabulous display of fireworks and dancing under the stars. It was a very good day, indeed.

Shoes are kicked off, people cozy up on the sofa and act like *themselves* together. Nothing is more inspiring or lovely than this. Someday when I look back on a season of my life, I want to remember it as it actually happened; the way your 5 week old’s head smells, watching your first born become a big sister, the tears – the laughter – it’s such a joyous time of life that is filled with the highest of highs and the lowest of lows. When Hannah and Milan invited us to document their newly minted family of four  we were beyond excited. We count these two as some of our dearest friends so spending this time together was such a gift to us. Thank you for allowing us into your home and hearts, Hannah and Milan. We love you four to the moon and back again!

Janine + Tom = Married


Janine and Tom met at a wedding and according to Janine “Tom was a groomsman. I called “dibs” on him prior to the wedding based on his facebook profile and when he walked into the reception hall wearing a cowboy hat and belt buckle I knew I was a goner! We consider that night the beginning of our relationship.” Tom serves as an army ranger in the 75th ranger regiment based out of Fort Benning, GA. In the fall of 2013, Janine received the dreaded phone call. Tom had been critically injured by a suicide bomber. He lost his right eye and upper half of his nose, broke his right foot, had a collapsed lung, and shrapnel wounds all over his body. But according to Janine’ “his brain & heart were untouched (the best parts!).” These two have been through so much together, and what they say is true: what doesn’t kill you will only make you stronger. They celebrated their long awaited wedding a few weeks back at the Salem Cross Inn in West Brookfield, Mass where Chuck (and our talented second shooter, Vina!) captured their emotional and love-filled wedding day. It was a day filled with so much joy, as well as a solemn reminder to live each day to the fullest (as their memorial table for fallen service men and women reminded us). Janine and Tom, we can not imagine two more loving, genuine and giving people. You guys deserve one another, and that says a lot given the solid character and heart you each bring to the table. Congratulations on your marriage and we wish you so many years of love together!

They are living in Somerville right now and wanted an Engagement Session where they call home before they tie the knot in upstate New York. They were both so kind, warm hearted and genuine people. I enjoyed shooting around my old neighborhood and seeing these two open up in front of the camera. Thanks for allowing me into this special time of your lives, you two! Congratulations!

A beautiful setting with meaning to the couple. Check. Clean and simple locations that don’t distract from the event. Check. An A+ vendor team who brings their game face. Check. A day-of timeline that doesn’t try to cram in too much and allows the couple to feel un-rushed. Check. A lively bunch of family and friends who pour their love on the couple. Check. And finally, two people that are head over heels for one another and make their lives more full by constantly raising the bar for each other to bring out the best in the other. Check check check. It was such a pleasure capturing Laura + Chris’ Wedding. Matt and Chuck made for a dream team together and we’re loving the photos that represented such a loving and wonderful day. Congratulations Laura + Chris! We know you’ll share many years of happiness and adventure.

The biggest being that we are given the honor of coming into people’s lives during such emotional and vulnerable moments. Falling in love, getting engaged, getting married, having a baby and watching your family grow and change – these are the exciting years of life and it’s with a full heart that we get to celebrate these times with our clients. When Maggie and Nick invited me to capture some photos of their sweet family on their little boy’s first birthday I was so excited to document this stage for these three. Making it through the first year of your first child’s life is a major accomplishment (those of you who have been there totally understand) and these two are doing life and parenting with such grace and ease. Their family radiates love and I hope the photos speak that to you today. Thank you for letting me into your beautiful lives, Maggie and Nick! Little G is irresistible!
