Apryl + Ashley = Married

SummerStreetPhotography_361

It says a lot when we leave a wedding and feel like one of the guests. Laughing (let’s face it, happy crying) and hugging as if we belonged right alongside their intimate list of honored guests. Apryl and Ashley are like that though. They draw people in with their genuine kindness and love. Apart they are both strong, beautiful, successful women. Together….well. Together they are even better. They celebrated their union at the most lovely B&B in North Minneapolis, The Le Blanc House where the skies parted from the rainstorm just in time for them to dry off the chairs and have their ceremony outside. Apryl was crying happy tears the entire ceremony and Ashley was grinning ear to ear. It was so happy. Afterward everyone slipped inside for toasts and a spontaneous dance party. The party continued down the street at the fabulous Red Stag Supper Club where their guests were treated to some of Minneapolis’ finest grub. It was a beautiful and joyous day, and we were so happy to be a part of it! Congratulations you two! We wish you a lifetime of happiness together.

Jessica + Chris = Married

SummerStreetPhotography_945

Rain on a wedding day proves to be one of the most commonly feared events that will happen when the big day rolls around. While most of the weddings we shoot are not rainy, there are a few that Mother Nature has her way. Jessica and Chris’ Wedding at the Minikahda Club in Minneapolis was one of those fierce Midwest stormy days that one wouldn’t have been surprised if a tornado rolled in. For those of you who know the eerie stillness these storms bring, you can imagine the challenge it might give for a wedding day. Fortunately for Jessica and Chris, their wedding was literally dripping with amazing details that didn’t need to be outdoors to shine. Lush florals, farmhouse tables, decadent sweets and this stunning pair tied the knot in style – forget the rain! We were so honored to have the privilege of working with Jessica and Chris and will always remember their wedding with fondness. We are so happy for this kind, compassionate pair and wish them all the best!

Emily + Adam = Engaged

summerstreetphotography-28

There is nothing sweeter than a quaint New England town and two sweethearts about to wed. We met up with Emily and Adam in Sunapee, New Hampshire back in June to spend an afternoon on Mount Sunapee and to stroll the sleepy resort town which was filled with lake enthusiasts. After a peaceful ride up the chair lift these two took center stage on the stunning vistas of New Hampshire (don’t you just love New England?). We think we should talk to the New Hampshire state tourism board and use Emily and Adam as models for their great state! After coming down the mountain we went into town where we found a quiet marina, covered bridge, general store and other sweet highlights that served as a great backdrop for Emily and Adam’s session. These two are about as down to earth and warm as two people get, and we feel darn lucky to have them as our clients! We can’t wait to be a part of your big day, Emily and Adam!

Deirdre + Casey = Married

SummerStreetPhotography_042

Deirdre and Casey threw one of the most beautifully classic weddings we’ve had the privilege of photographing. From her stunning gown to their Commonwealth Avenue portraits and the decadently beautiful setting of Alden Castle, these two know how to celebrate in style. We might be biased, but we feel like Boston is the most beautiful city in the US, and there is pretty much nothing more romantic than a classic city wedding. Deirdre and Casey’s love is steadfast and true, and we’re smitten with the way they personified their connection into their soiree. Matt was there to capture all the action and it’s safe to say that the rest of us (Kendra, Chuck and Abby) were pretty jealous for hitting the wedding client jackpot. Congratulations Deirdre and Casey! You both have been such a joy to work with. We wish you years of love, red wine and cheese. ;)

Ashley + Jamie = Max

summerstreetphotography-35

This session makes us so happy. You may remember Ashely and Jamie from their classy wedding in the mountains of Vermont back in 2012. In addition to this job being our livelihood, we are filled in so many ways from the relationships we make telling love stories. Making friends along the way is really the cherry on the sundae, and this sweet family is just that. Ashley, Jamie and their sweet son Max have become dear friends of ours and when they asked us to capture this fleeting moment  in their family life, we were all in. We joined them at their darling apartment in Cambridge to grab some photos of Max doing his sweet baby thing, and after slipped over to Fresh Pond, which is just steps from their house to capture some photos outside of the three of them (and keep Max awake since it was nearly bedtime!). We are loving the images from their session and hope you enjoy a peek at this beautiful family too.

Sarah + Matt = Engaged

summerstreetphotography-9

Sarah and Matt are so wonderful. Grounded, charismatic, loyal and fun-loving, these two are a joy to be around. (Our) Matt accompanied them on a mini adventure around Sarah’s parents home in Gloucester Mass where they basked in the sunshine and enjoyed the salt marshes and ocean. Sometimes we feel like we get to accompany our clients on some pretty romantic outings, so we’re always grateful for their open hearts to share a date with us (long walks on the beach? check!). We can’t wait for their wedding in just a few weeks at the Misselwood Estate. It’s going to be such a great day!
