Amanda + Loftin = Married

summerstreetphotography_966

Ahhh Maine. For those of you who have visited or live there you know that Maine is a special place. Something about the stunning rocky shore lines, thriving community of artists and local fishermen and did we mention the lobster? Matt and I have been long time fans of all things Maine, so it’s always a treat to get to work there. Amanda and Loftin share our sentiment because despite having family all across the eastern seaboard, they decided to get married at a family residence on Deer Isle and make their wedding a destination for all their guests. And what a wedding they had! If the photos aren’t evidence enough of how special these two are, you can go ahead and take our word for it. Their heart felt and personalized wedding day was a joy to share in. Thank you for allowing us to capture your wedding, Amanda and Loftin. We wish you years of happiness!

Trish + Cory = Engaged

summerstreetphotography_889

Oh how we have big hearts for these two! It’s not often that we get to photograph friends and family, but when we do it proves to combine parts of our lives that yield in some pretty great photos (if we’re allowed to say that….). Cory is Kendra’s cousin, so they’ve known each other since infancy. Trish has also been in Kendra’s life for a long time as their parents were friends and they played together as kids. So Cory and Trish grew up in the same town, but it wasn’t until after high school that they re connected as more than just friends. They compliment each other in so many ways, and Trish has fit into Cory’s family (and extended family) as if she’s always been a part of us. We were thrilled when they asked us to capture this exiting time as they plan for their wedding next May. It’s surely going to be a day filled with the best kind of happiness. These two deserve it. Congratulations you love birds! We love you!

Betsy + Viktor = Married

summerstreetphotography_853

Betsy and Viktor were married on the last day of spring on the most perfect June day. Their wedding was the epitome of all things lovely, which just confirms our theory that weddings are a direct reflection of the couple in honor. Betsy and Viktor are genuine, loving and honest folks. We feel very lucky to call them our clients. The Lyman Estate continues to be one of our favorite Boston venues with its grand stature and lush grounds, all the while retaining a certain humbleness that yields the best kind of hospitality.  Chuck was fortunate enough to photograph their wedding day and we think all the elements made for such a great set of photos for them to cherish. Congratulations Betsy and Viktor, we wish you all the happiness in the world!

First off, it’s the first wedding I’ve photographed in my hometown of Yankton, South Dakota. When the beautiful bride, Brooke, asked me on her wedding day if I’d ever photographed a wedding in Yankton, I had to think for a moment but realized that no, I hadn’t ever shot there before. After five years of doing this full time it was definitely time to break that ice – and Brooke, Eric and their crew certainly did! These two wanted a love filled celebration that allowed their nearest and dearest 400 guests to kick off their marriage with a HECK of a party. One that spanned two states, in fact. You see, Brooke grew up in Yankton and Eric grew up right across the river in Crofton, Nebraska. They got ready in one of the oldest buildings in town – the Dakota Territorial Capital building (once upon a time Yankton was the capital of SD) which sits right on the river and has a beautiful park as its yard which made for some lovely photos before the ceremony. They said ‘I do’ at Brooke’s childhood church and after the ceremony the entire wedding party took a booze cruise around Yankton which was buzzing with energy and music. It was literally a party on wheels. Of course I had to drag them into a corn field for a big wedding party photo after which the celebration continued into Nebraska where they joined their guests at the Crofton Auditorium for the reception. It was a fun-filled day that we were happy to get to share in! Congratulations Brooke and Eric! Thanks for having us!

Ryann and Ted’s big day was definitely one of them. These two are full of life, love and laughter – and anyone who knows them knows this is not a cliche for this pair. Working in new environments always makes us excited to be doing what we’re doing, so when Ryann gave us her vision with some of Chicago’s prettiest landmarks as spots she wanted incorporated into her wedding photos we were all in. From start to finish Ryann and Ted were emotionally present and enjoying their day which makes the whole experience more relaxed and fun. We had a blast photographing this one and hope you can see that in their wedding story. Congratulations to the newlyweds!

Emily + Rob = Married

summerstreetphotography_390

Emily and Rob are just the best. Smart, compassionate and full of class – these two are as good as it gets. They threw an elegantly laid-back wedding for their nearest and dearest to celebrate their first day as husband and wife. The Endicott Estate serves as a stunning backdrop for any event, but we felt like it was effortlessly suited for this wedding, fitting in somewhere between F Scott Fizgerald’s, The Great Gatsby and a Jane Austen novel. (Maybe it was the slew of handsome men in tuxes or Emily’s graceful bridal style that did us in?) It also says a lot about a couple when the groom asks his father to be his best man. We love everything these two are about, and feel so fortunate to have gotten the opportunity to document their wedding day. Emily and Rob, we wish you years of happiness together!
