Jamie 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 Jamie and Ben did with care. It’s also very promising when you take two people as genuine, lovely and talented (did we mention Jamie 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 Jamie and Ben!

Leah + Mike = Married

When Mike and Leah set out to plan their nuptials, they knew they wanted something historic, unique and fun. They wanted something that wasn’t your traditional ballroom and chicken-dinner type wedding. When they told us about their plans to get married on a historic Riverboat on the Saint Croix off of Stillwater, we couldn’t be […]

When Mike and Leah set out to plan their nuptials, they knew they wanted something historic, unique and fun. They wanted something that wasn’t your traditional ballroom and chicken-dinner type wedding. When they told us about their plans to get married on a historic Riverboat on the Saint Croix off of Stillwater, we couldn’t be more excited. Mike and our very own Matt go way back. I’m talking, they have been friends since they were in diapers. It’s not often that we are invited to a wedding that we are also photographing, so it worked out to be a perfect fit to have our Midwest Associate Photographer Abby shoot their big day. Since Matt was in the wedding and I got to be a wedding guest (what do you mean I can eat and drink at a wedding? :)) it was fun to sit back and watch the action unfold from a guest’s perspective, and then later catch up with Abby about all the fun she had with these two. Mike and Leah’s wedding turned out to be exactly as they hoped, with an emphasis on the fun, and it was an honor to work with them. Mike and Leah, you know we love you guys and are so happy for you as you become a new family. Congratulations!

Audrey + Patrick = Married

There’s nothing quite like a traditional wedding filled with class and sophistication. We love Audrey and Patrick’s rendition of romance, and how they built their wedding around the laid-back elegance vibe. The Villa in East Bridgewater provided a lovely backdrop for their family and friends to gather together to celebrate these two, and the autumn sunshine […]

There’s nothing quite like a traditional wedding filled with class and sophistication. We love Audrey and Patrick’s rendition of romance, and how they built their wedding around the laid-back elegance vibe. The Villa in East Bridgewater provided a lovely backdrop for their family and friends to gather together to celebrate these two, and the autumn sunshine made her appearance just in time for their outdoor ceremony and sun drenched portraits. Chuck had the privilege of working with Audrey and Patrick, and our good friend and talented photographer Katie accompanied him as the second shooter for the day. The results were flawless (as well as Audrey’s bridal look, am I right?) and the photos are clearly evidence of their joy together. Audrey and Patrick, we are elated for you during this exciting time. Thank you for trusting us to capture your flawless wedding!

Ali + Adam = Married

We love so much about Ali and Adam’s wedding. You really can’t go wrong with a wedding on the cape in our minds. The sand and sun make anything better, so when you set a pretty little wedding right by the sea, magic happens. Ali and Adam share a beautiful love, and their wedding day […]


We love so much about Ali and Adam’s wedding. You really can’t go wrong with a wedding on the cape in our minds. The sand and sun make anything better, so when you set a pretty little wedding right by the sea, magic happens. Ali and Adam share a beautiful love, and their wedding day was a fantastic reflection of their connection. The Hawthrone in Chatham, Mass  served as a beautiful backdrop for their wedding day. Their entire wedding was filled with personal touches, including hand-made flower arrangements by the bridesmaids. And I don’t know about you, but their array of cakes (plural!) is about the prettiest display of yum we’ve seen this season. Chuck was capturing all the goodness for this wedding, and each time we think he’s outdone himself. Congratulations Ali and Adam. We wish you both years of wedded bliss!

Erica and Tim’s wedding was an event long in the making. They came to us early in their engagement, so we’ve had the privilege of getting to know these two quite well leading up to the wedding. It’s always fun to follow along in an engagement like theirs, because we become confidants during the vendor hunt and planning process. Erica and Tim had The Towers in Narragansett all lined up for their reception, and were hoping to have the ceremony outside on the town green nearby. When that door closed during the process, they turned to a nearby Bed and Breakfast which turned out way better than they could have imagined. Their families occupied the B&B for the week and set up camp Erica and Tim. Erica and her maids got ready at the Inn while Tim and his guys hung out at his family’s house nearby. They waited to see one another until the ceremony which made emotions run high for everyone involved. Tim’s experience in the military typically leaves him strong and steadfast, but even he couldn’t resist a tear as Erica made her way down the aisle. The celebration continued over at The Towers after the ceremony where their friends and families showered them with love in the form of witty toasts and even a song sung by Erica’s father (“My Girl”, for those of you who want to awwww with us). Overall, it was a smashing success filled with lots of love. What more can one ask for? Congratulations to the newlyweds!

Becca + Dan = Married

In the client department, we feel like we are winning. Nothing makes this job more fun than the people we get to work with.

In the client department, we feel like we are winning. Nothing makes this job more fun than the people we get to work with. It’s truly our joy to capture our couple’s love stories, and Becca and Dan’s Hubbell Homestead Wedding in Vermont is no exception. Chuck has been busy on Summer Street this fall, and he was privileged to capture Becca and Dan’s wedding on a perfect September day. Matt and I enjoyed shooting at Hubbell in the past, so it’s always fun to see how Chuck will capture the same space. Becca and Dan’s wedding did not disappoint, where some of our favorite highlights included family contributions such as the hand made chuppah that Dan’s family lovingly crafted with vines over a period of months. Their families also crafted the woodland centerpieces, so there was some serious talent running through their veins. We’re obsessed with their sun drenched portraits, and think their newlywed glow is just about as beautiful as Chuck’s handiwork behind the camera. Becca and Dan, we are so happy for you guys and know you deserve all the joy in the world. Congratulations!

Monica + Stephen = Married

We love this job for so many reasons, but one of the best is the diversity we see in how couples choose to celebrate their big day. Our biggest advice for couples planning their wedding (besides hiring a photographer you love, of course) is to stay true to personalizations throughout the venue and vendor choices. […]

We love this job for so many reasons, but one of the best is the diversity we see in how couples choose to celebrate their big day. Our biggest advice for couples planning their wedding (besides hiring a photographer you love, of course) is to stay true to personalizations throughout the venue and vendor choices. Ultimately, it’s a day to kick off your marriage in whatever way you hope, and when couples stay true to this, magic happens. Monica and Stephen nailed this one on the head for their summer camp wedding in New Hampshire. They kept the gathering fun and interesting by hosting the wedding at North Woods Summer Camp and honored their values by selecting strictly vegan accompaniments. The food and attire were all vegan, and they used sustainable and renewable products whenever possible. The results were fantastic, and we’re very jealous that Chuck got to capture this one without us. Congratulations to Monica and Stephen, and a job well done (as always) to Chuck!
