Baby F

summerstreetphotography-18

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 + Chris = Married

SummerStreetPhotography_630

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!

Suzy + Dan = Married

summerstreetphotography-31

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!

Jaime + Ben = Married

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!
