You may remember Erin and Koji from their Wedding. Or perhaps their Maternity Session a few weeks back. By now, these two are old friends on Summer Street so it was a complete honor to capture their newest addition to their lives through photos. Chuck captured this sweet session and we are officially obsessed with the results. You can feel the love, can’t you? The photo of the new family sitting in the nursery literally gives me chills. It’s one of those images that wraps up the experience of having a new baby in your life. The world rushes around you, but in the middle of it all there is this tiny, helpless creature that teaches us how to give sacrificial love. The look on Erin and Koji’s face in that image is just *everything*. Is it dusty around here? Erin and Koji, we are thrilled to see you as parents. That baby girl is one lucky human. Congratulations!!
Sharon and Chris were married in Lakeville, Minnesota a few weeks back, wrapping up our 2014 season on a very high note. They were married on the same week that they celebrated 10 years together, which was one sweet element in a slew of meaningful contributions in their big day. They got ready at their venue and made their way down to a nearby state park for their first look and couple portraits – in the bitter cold of 17 degrees (without coats) – but once they saw each other their excitement and warmth pushed them through for some beautiful images together. A roaring fire welcomed guests as they shared a cozy and meaningful ceremony together. Cold temps didn’t keep the crew of Minnesotan wedding attendants leery of popping outside for some photos (we are a tough breed) and afterward the party continued with witty toasts and some polka dancing. If there is anything we are sure of, it’s that these two deserve one another and they will share a happily ever after together. Congratulations, Sharon and Chris!
I was honored to capture Kate and Rob’s Engagement Session a few weeks back in Saint Paul, MN. Engagement Sessions are much like a date with your photographer, and it’s safe to say that I would want to continue dating these two after our fun time together. Even in the cold, they had bright spirits and were up for anything. We started our time in Cathedral Hill and stopped in a sweet little book store to warm up and get some photos of them reading together (something they love). We ended the session on the Mississippi River Bluff overlooking downtown, Saint Paul and those might be some of my favorite photos from our time together. We can’t wait to photograph their vintage inspired wedding next August at The Semple Mansion in Minneapolis. After getting to know Kate and Rob, it’s going to be a classy, laid-back affair. Pardon our humble-brag, but our clients really are the best.
Maybe it’s the introverts in us, but we love weddings with small guest lists. I think it’s a combination of seeing the bride and groom lavish love from each and every guest, or maybe it’s because the whole wedding feels like a dinner party, but either way we’re fans. Dan and Suzy celebrated their union at the DeWolf Tavern in Bristol, Rhode Island a few weeks back, and Chuck was there to capture all the action. If you’ve never been to Bristol, you really should add it to your travel list. It’s the sweetest little costal New England town, with a sleepy old main street and beautiful historic houses that line the streets. It’s no surprise that The Dewolf Tavern was equally as cozy for a wedding. We love how the late fall twilight illuminates their dark and striking features, and how Dan’s pop of red on his tie and boutonnière are just the right touch of color. Beyond the aesthetic details, these two are charismatic sweethearts, and we couldn’t be more grateful for their trust in our work! Congratulations Suzy and Dan, we know you have years of happiness in your future together!
Oh we have a treat for you today, friends. Danielle and Jason are about as sweet as they come, and if the above photo evidence isn’t proof enough, let us gush just a minute about them. Danielle is the type of person whose presence feels like a warm hug. She’s giggly, smart and head over heels for her love, Jason. Jason is charming, stead fast and one of the most caring people you will ever meet. They deserve one another, and it’s been a blast working with them so far. Chuck is their lead shooter, so it’s always fun to watch him capture the love our couples share. As a side note, we are constantly blown away by the caliber of his talent. It’s not hard to make couples like Danielle and Jason shine, but while working on the images there just wasn’t a single photo that was less than amazing. We hope you enjoy this session as much as we do(especially those beautiful fall colors that are now tucked away for the year) and hope you’ll join us in Congratulating these two on their Engagement!
Jaime and Ben threw the most charming wedding a few weeks back in Saint Paul. Matt and Abby were there to capture it all, and the results are just so great. We love love love when our couples infuse themselves into their wedding celebration, which Jaime and Ben did with care. It’s also very promising when you take two people as genuine, lovely and talented (did we mention Jaime is a florist back home in California and whipped together her wedding flowers?) as this pair and stem out a celebration as unique as they are. We’ve never seen such a well-executed ‘autumnal’ wedding so appropriately crafted for the middle of October. From the color palate of rich greens and deep plums to the textures of the farmhouse tables and soft glow of candlelight, it was all just so cozy and savory. Beside all the fantastic sensory details, what we really appreciated about this wedding was how much love was buzzing around during the reception. It’s clear that these two are deserving of a long and prosperous marriage, and we couldn’t be happier for them. Congratulations Jaime and Ben!
Today we’re thrilled to share a few highlights from Chuck’s time with the adorable Katie and Phil during their fall Engagement Session. It’s clear that their love for one another bubbles over the brim, and we love the classic, laid-back style these two share. It’s no surprise that autumn in New England happens to be one of our most popular times for an Engagement Session, clearly the dewy light and fall colors serve as a perfect backdrop for a couple in love. They will be getting married in Georgia next May, so it’s always fun to be able to capture couples before they tie the knot out of state so that they can always remember their time in Boston together. Katie and Phil, if this session is any indication of how your wedding images will turn out, you will have nothing to worry about! We wish you the best as you plan your beautiful wedding and beyond. Congrats!
