Debra + Tyler = Married

What do you get when you put together two outgoing thespians, one crew of fun friends, a slew of loving and joyful relatives, a farm and a quaint small-town American storefront wedding venue? Deb and Tyler’s wedding. That’s what. Abby had the privilege of photographing Deb and Tyler’s big day in Manvel, North Dakota and […]

What do you get when you put together two outgoing thespians, one crew of fun friends, a slew of loving and joyful relatives, a farm and a quaint small-town American storefront wedding venue? Deb and Tyler’s wedding. That’s what. Abby had the privilege of photographing Deb and Tyler’s big day in Manvel, North Dakota and we’re loving the images she captured. How beautiful does Deb look? And how sweet is Tyler? Seriously. These two are the complete package and we’ve had such a great time getting to know them as new friends. In lieu of the traditional Bridal Party, Deb and Tyler decided to personalize their wedding by having a “menagerie” of friends, each representing an animal that matched their personality (now you know whey they are wearing ears in some of the photos). They also made their day extra special by having Tyler’s father officiate the ceremony. The celebration continued downtown Manvel with their cozy dinner reception and adorable woodland centerpieces to accompany their menagerie theme. Congratulations Tyler and Deb! We wish you an eternity of happiness together.

Jodi + Warren = Married

There is something about this wedding, isn’t there? From the perfectly preppy Cape Cod details to the ceremony on the sand, Jodi and Warren left nothing to be spared with their backyard wedding in Falmouth, Mass. We love the laid back, yet elegant vibe they have going on and the open air dance floor with […]

There is something about this wedding, isn’t there? From the perfectly preppy Cape Cod details to the ceremony on the sand, Jodi and Warren left nothing to be spared with their backyard wedding in Falmouth, Mass. We love the laid back, yet elegant vibe they have going on and the open air dance floor with something cold to drink are all recipes for a great time. Chuck had the honor of photographing Jodi and Warren’s Wedding day, and once again: we’re jealous. These two have been so fun and easy to work with, and clearly their wedding turned out just as they hoped; awesome. Jodi and Warren, we wish you years of happiness together, Congratulations!

Elizabeth + Oliver = Married

We loved Elizabeth and Oliver’s Wedding at The Farm at Pokanoket in Westport, MA for a number of reasons. First, these two left no detail unattended. From the long farmhouse tables guests enjoyed at dinner to the warm sea breezes off the ocean, it was an exquisite day. Of course we love photographing pretty things, […]

We loved Elizabeth and Oliver’s Wedding at The Farm at Pokanoket in Westport, MA for a number of reasons. First, these two left no detail unattended. From the long farmhouse tables guests enjoyed at dinner to the warm sea breezes off the ocean, it was an exquisite day. Of course we love photographing pretty things, but it’s way more fun to capture the love shared by a community of people coming together to celebrate a new family. It shows us that they will have a successful marriage because they have strong role models that have brought them up in a way that showcases what it means to be selfless in the name of love. Oliver’s family is Swedish, so they took on a few fun Swedish traditions in their reception. For example, there were many heartfelt toasts (and songs) wishing the newlyweds their best throughout their meal. Traditionally, a bell would ring to call the guests’ attention to the next toaster, but Elizabeth and Oliver had a fun twist where their friend played the saxophone to serenade guests to the next toaster. We were honored to have the privilege of working with this lovely couple, and we hope you enjoy their wedding photos as much as we do! Special thanks to our girl Deb for second shooting with us. Always a pleasure to have you on board, Deb! Congratulations Elizabeth and Oliver!

Sarah + Matt = Married

It’s hard to believe this weekend marks the unofficial end of summer and the start of the fall season. While we still have plenty of weddings this fall, it always amazes us how quickly the summer months blaze by. Once winter sets in, we find ourselves savoring the colors of summer as we work on […]

It’s hard to believe this weekend marks the unofficial end of summer and the start of the fall season. While we still have plenty of weddings this fall, it always amazes us how quickly the summer months blaze by. Once winter sets in, we find ourselves savoring the colors of summer as we work on albums and off-season duties that have us filing through summer weddings. Sarah and Matt’s Wedding in Beverly, MA at the stunning Misselwood Mansion is one for the books. These two have been an absolute joy to work with, and their loveliness was clearly infused into every aspect of their classy wedding. Delicate florals, calm, ocean cove waters and a guest list filled with loving family and friends, Sarah and Matt’s big day was just as every wedding should be. We were delighted to have the opportunity to tell their love story, and know this is the beginning of a very happily-ever-after for these two. Congratulations Sarah and Matt, it’s been a pleasure!

Jacqueline + Matt = Married

Having two Associate Photographers here on Summer Street has proved to be mostly a beautiful thing. There are multiple eyes on the most important days in our clients’ lives, which means that we’re focused and rested when it comes time for us to work, the team mentality proves over and over again to strengthen our product and experience, an so on. The one thing that has been tough, if we are being honest, is that Matt and I get a little jealous when Chuck or Abby get to shoot a wedding and we don’t. When our Associate Shooters work with our couples, Matt and I do all the pre (and post) administrational work with our couples which means we get the full vision before the wedding day. We cherish the relationships we build during this season in our couples lives and getting to hug and toast to them on their wedding day is a huge high. Jacqueline and Matt are a perfect example of this. They are well suited for one another in many ways. Matt is loyal, strong and gentle. Jacqueline is warm, bubbly and steadfast. They have an easy flow to their relationship that puts people at ease. Chuck had the privilege of shooting their Nahant, Mass wedding earlier this month and the first thing he said to us after working with them was, “these two are SO nice!” And it’s true. Jacqueline and Matt, we have such big hearts for you. Congratulations on this new chapter in your lives. We know your marriage will be even more beautiful than your wedding, and that’s what it’s all about.

Sarah + Jon = Married

This wedding has a whole lot of love going on, doesn’t it? Our new Midwest Associate Photographer Abby did such a great job capturing Sarah and Jon’s sweet love. Stillwater, MN is one of our favorite quaint towns to day-trip, and Sarah and Jon’s historic courthouse wedding emulates the spirit of this sleepy river town. […]

This wedding has a whole lot of love going on, doesn’t it? Our new Midwest Associate Photographer Abby did such a great job capturing Sarah and Jon’s sweet love. Stillwater, MN is one of our favorite quaint towns to day-trip, and Sarah and Jon’s historic courthouse wedding emulates the spirit of this sleepy river town. These two share a special love. They are both kind-hearted, honest and grounded people who share a big love for baseball. We love their cheery, vintage decor that just beams with happiness. We were so honored to have had the opportunity to work with them and know they are going to live a truly meaningful life together. Congratulations Sarah and Jon!

Leah + Erik = Married

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 […]

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!
