This post makes us so happy! Jessica and Shaunt were married during our early early days as a business, and were one of the first couples to see potential in our work. We’ve all come a long way since those days, but their wedding at The Commanders Mansion in Watertown remains one of our favorites still. Jessica and Shaunt are a fantastic pair, and through their five years of marriage have had a heck of a ride. At their lowest, Jessica almost lost her life to a serious brain aneurysm. With the gift of modern medicine and a whole lot of love from Shaunt, their rescue dogs and their loving family and friends, she’s made a full recovery and their newest accomplishment just blossomed into life: baby K. They welcomed a daughter into the world in June and asked us to document some of the early days for their memories. Chuck photographed this sweet family in their (envy-inducing) home which is brimming with love and life. It’s so great to see such a deserving pair hold this kind of happiness in their arms. Congratulations Jessica + Shaunt!
What a glorious wedding day Dominique and Dan had in July! We have more than enjoyed working with these two, and by the time the big day came along it was no surprise that the wedding day was a fantastic celebration of their union. Dominique and Dan are the total package: hard working, genuine, loving, giving and kind. They absolutely deserve each other and we know they will do amazing things together as their future unfolds. Dan grew up in Sioux Falls, SD and Dominique grew up in Canada and Yankton (a small jaunt from Sioux Falls) but it wasn’t until Medical School that their paths crossed and their love grew. Sioux Falls was the perfect backdrop for their wedding that brought people from California, Canada and even Africa (!) to celebrate with them. It was a happy coincidence that their wedding day also fell on Canada Day, so the Canadians in the group had a great time celebrating their patriotic pride together. We are over the moon for you, Dom + Dan. We wish you all the happiness you deserve and more. Congratulations!
Priya and Rishi are the total package. Smart, dynamic, personable (beautiful!) and approachable – we’ve enjoyed getting to know them so much throughout their Engagement. As our business has shifted to a two region structure, it’s been incredible how many other couples we’ve met with ties in both Boston and Minnesota. Priya grew up in California and Rishi in Minnesota. Life brought them to Boston and now they are planning their wedding in Minnesota next month. Matt met up with them at some of the prettiest Boston spots for some Engagement Photos before the big day and it was clear from photographing them that these two share a special bond. We’re thrilled to be shooting their Wedding celebrations next month in Minneapolis and know it will be filled with incredible colors, food and a whole lot of fun. Keep an eye on the blog for more goodness from Priya and Rishi to come!
When I look through these images I see JOY and LIFE. We not only have the honor of calling this family our clients, but also some of our closest friends. They graced our blog last summer when their littlest member joined the crew, and when we were in Massachusetts we had to grab some recent photos of them with their growing family. A summer’s evening with a picnic, some bubbles and some family cuddles is about as good as it gets, and we loved every minute hanging out with these four. It’s our honor to document families as they grow, and this session exemplifies the approach and style we love to take with family photo sessions. Hannah and Milan – you both mean the world to us and we are grateful for your friendship and trust in capturing some moments in your beautiful family. Here’s to many more beautiful summer’s evening picnics with kids left in a good scum of bubble solution, dirt and dinner crumbs!
Chuck had the honor of photographing Angela + Tom’s Fruitlands Museum Wedding at the beginning of July and from his report (and the photo evidence) it was a *fantastic* day. From the beginning, Angela and Tom told us that they wanted a laid back party where their loved ones could gather to celebrate their wedding in the beauty of the New England landscape. We can think of no better venue than Fruitlands to capture this vibe, and with Angela and Tom on center stage it makes for any photographer’s dream come true. They were married on Independence Day weekend, so they made sure to incorporate some good ole patriotic spirit with a sparkler exit toward the end of the night. We’re pretty sure that these photos should convince any engaged couple who is on the fence about a sparkler exit to GO FOR IT. We’re consistently blown away by Chuck’s talent behind the lens and so very happy for these happy newlyweds. Angela + Tom, Congratulations! We wish you both (and little L!) much happiness and joy.
Molly and Mark were married on a warm June afternoon at Strawbale Winery in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. We enjoyed shooting this wedding so much. There could not be two more easy-going, loving, and kind-hearted people in South Dakota. They wanted a wedding that celebrated not only their union, but also their communities and families that brought them to the place they are now. They certainly accomplished what they set out for and more. The day began with each of them getting ready with their favorite people and sharing some champagne, after which they headed out to Strawbale Winery for photos and to prep for the ceremony. Their ceremony was heartfelt and accompanied by a beautiful string quartet and lemonade. Afterward they headed over to the stylish Icon lounge for their reception. On arrival every guest took a Polaroid photo of themselves to paste into a guest book; definitely one of the sweetest and most creative guest book ideas we’ve seen! It was a great day. Molly and Mark, we’re so happy for you both, Congratulations!
Chuck joined Caitlin and Greg for their Wedding celebration in West Dennis, Massachusetts earlier this summer to photograph their big day. We knew a few things going into their wedding; primarily that they were going for a fun and laid back celebration on the water that focused on the love and support from their friends and family – and – there would be headstands during their party. We never got the full story of why this was a tradition, but we now believe this should become as common as exchanging wedding rings at a wedding. Chuck confirmed their wedding was all they hoped and more: a day filled with love, laughter and a lot of head stands. Mother nature was out in full force with every kind of wind and rain, but this didn’t deter the celebration from being a fantastic time for all. The love Caitlin and Greg share clearly dominates any weather thrown their way, which also serves as a beautiful metaphor for their married life together in the future. It’s been our pleasure getting to know these two and celebrating their union. Congratulations to the newlyweds!
