Leah and Erik are a dream team. Compassionate, thoughtful, talented and dare I say jolly (those of you who know Erik understand), we are smitten with this pair. We had the privilege of capturing their Sioux Falls, South Dakota wedding earlier in August and had a fantastic day. You really know that it’s been a great wedding when you leave work grinning ear to ear. They got ready at Erik’s family home surrounded by their friends and family. They had their first look and a few portraits together at the beautiful Terrace Park (where we could shoot all day long under the willow trees). After some additional portraits with their family and wedding party we headed downtown for their heartfelt ceremony that was filled with happy tears. The celebration continued with the sweetest bubble exit and ride on a horse drawn carriage (midwest style) and a great party at the new Hilton Garden Inn downtown. Leah and Erik, we wish you both years of happiness together! It’s been a pleasure. Congratulations!
Hannah and Hunter are so good together. Creative, genuine and hearts of gold – these two just work. We were honored to be a part of their lovely lovely wedding day in Sioux Falls, SD. After getting ready at home, they snuck away for a first look at Terrace Park downtown Sioux Falls. On the way there, Hannah was telling her personal attendant and me about how she was pretty sure Hunter was going to cry when he saw her because “he’s so good like that.” Sure enough, Hunter shed a few happy tears when he saw his radiant bride who was just bubbling with excitement that their wedding day had finally come. It was very sweet. They held their ceremony in South Dakota’s largest cathedral, Saint Joeseph’s where their nearest and dearest came out to witness their vows and first kiss as husband and wife. Afterward the celebration continued downtown Sioux Falls at the Museum of Visual Materials where their parents and friends toasted to their eternal happiness over some tasty BBQ. It was such a good day. Congrats you two!
Is there anything better than a summer wedding at a historic mansion? We may be biased, but we’d say no. Christina and Alex were wed on a beautiful summer day in July and Chuck (and our fabulous second shooter, Katie) were there to capture all the action. Our favorite highlights from their wedding include photos on the house-boat that Alex’s parents recently moved onto after selling their house (how cool is that?) and the surprise song Alex’s sister sang during their first dance. We love when our couples personalize their weddings and this wedding was full of personality! The Linden Place in Bristol remains one of our favorite “little” mansions in Rhode Island and seeing it in action again for Christina and Alex’s big day just reconfirmed our love for that beautiful house. Congratulations you two! We wish you all the best!
We love us a good Engagement Session. Put two gorgeous people in a stunning Boston backdrop and we’re all set. I had the pleasure of photographing Christina and Gabe in their neighborhood of The North End back in June, which in wedding season feels like years ago. Their kindness, genuine spirits and laid back approachability made such an impact on me that I’m dreaming of zipping over to join them for Oysters after work today (meet you guys at Neptune at 5? :)). They will be tying the knot next year in Christina’s home state of Michigan, and we’re sure that whoever will get to photograph their wedding will be one lucky photographer. We love these glimpses of their life here in Boston and were honored to capture this special time in their lives. Congrats, Christina and Gabe!
Ok. If you aren’t feeling overloaded by the cuteness, there is something wrong with you. I mean come on. Would you look at these two (and a half?) We’ve had such a great time working with Ashley and Adam, and really, the fun has just begun. We are always excited to work with couples after they get married and have a beautiful wedding and are on to new chapters of their lives. These two are about to welcome a sweet little one into their lives in just a matter of days, and we are so happy for them. We’ll be along for the journey as we’ll be doing newborn and baby sessions with them in the coming year. Saint Paul’s historic Lowertown provided a stunning backdrop to their urban, playful maternity session and we think Ashley is sporting the cutest bump ever. You’ll see them on the blog again in just a few weeks…but next time as a family of three! (p.s. Doesn’t Ashley’s makeup by Brett Dorian look amazing?)
This wedding makes us excited for so many reasons. First off all, did you see Kelly and Dylan? They both look like they just walked off the set of The Great Gatsby. Classy, timeless and (dare I say) sexy, these two are easy to photograph. Beside the fact that their wedding was filled with personal touches and styled elements that made our job easy, these two really are as good as it gets. Their hearts are big and open, ready to welcome life and whatever comes their way, together. Secondarily, we’re over the moon to share this wedding because it’s a testament to why life is such an exciting surprise. If you’ve been following our blog lately, you’ll know that we’ve been training a new Midwest Associate Photographer, Abby, since the beginning of this year. Abby has been a quick learner, and Kelly and Dylan’s wedding was her first solo wedding. When Kelly and Dylan reached out to us just a few short weeks before their wedding, we were already booked but Abby was available and let’s just say it was all meant to be. As we tell all our clients, having Associate Shooters was never really in the business plan for us (nor was becoming wedding photographers, actually) but life has amazing ways of presenting opportunities to us when we least expect them and it’s always for the best. I think you’ll agree that it’s good to have Abby on the team, and as far as Kelly and Dylan are concerned? We couldn’t be happier to have had the opportunity of working together. Congratulations you two! We’re over the moon for you.
We may be biased, but we think one of the best souvenirs one can have when they go on a trip is photo evidence. Every tourist remembers to bring their camera, but what about if you want to be IN the photos? Nikki and George had the forethought to do just that. Head over heels for one another and recently Engaged, these two love birds from the South called us up during their recent trip to Boston for some unforgettable photos in the beautiful city of Boston. Chuck was there to capture it all on camera and we are totally in love with the photos. Beacon Hill, The Public Gardens AND Fenway? Yes please. We especially love the playful shots around Fenway, even though Nikki is rooting for her own team (we’ll forgive you, Nikki). Congratulations Nikki and George!
