2016 – In Review

Oh friends. What a year it’s been. For many this has been a tumultuous year.

Oh friends. What a year it’s been. For many this has been a tumultuous year. We’ve certainly bared witness to heart ache and stormy weather this year, but after looking through what has become our favorite work related task (collecting what we feel are our strongest images from the year) we are reminded that there is a whole lot to celebrate this year too. And it’s not the pretty wedding details, but real, messy, living and breathing love. From trembling hands that ring their beloved to tiny kicks that wait to be loved and the sugar high induced tantrum that cuts the shoot short – this is life-giving work. It is our great pleasure to bear witness to our clients friends lives. To capture who, where and what you love. We are filled with gratitude to document some of the most tender, vulnerable and joy-filled events in life. The joy rubs off on us too, and for that we are eternally grateful. Let’s do this, 2017.

We have more than enjoyed working with these two, and by the time the big day came along it was no surprise that the wedding day was a fantastic celebration of their union. Dominique and Dan are the total package: hard working, genuine, loving, giving and kind. They absolutely deserve each other and we know they will do amazing things together as their future unfolds. Dan grew up in Sioux Falls, SD and Dominique grew up in Canada and Yankton (a small jaunt from Sioux Falls) but it wasn’t until Medical School that their paths crossed and their love grew. Sioux Falls was the perfect backdrop for their wedding that brought people from California, Canada and even Africa (!) to celebrate with them. It was a happy coincidence that their wedding day also fell on Canada Day, so the Canadians in the group had a great time celebrating their patriotic pride together. We are over the moon for you, Dom + Dan. We wish you all the happiness you deserve and more. Congratulations!

Morgan + Jordan = Married

I’m not sure if we’ve ever worked with a couple SO EXCITED to get married. Morgan and Jordan are so well suited for one another, and their love left us with a huge grin wiped across our face. With common loves for travel, adventure, God and the outdoors, these two are as beautiful on the […]

I’m not sure if we’ve ever worked with a couple SO EXCITED to get married. Morgan and Jordan are so well suited for one another, and their love left us with a huge grin wiped across our face. With common loves for travel, adventure, God and the outdoors, these two are as beautiful on the inside as they are on the outside. Their Wedding day was filled with 300 of their closest friends and family, lots of great stories (and songs!) and a skies that had forecasted 100% chance of rain but not a drop touched their shoulders during their wedding. It was a pretty spectacular day. We were thrilled to have the opportunity to capture their wedding story (special thanks to our talented friend and second shooter, Ellie!) and wish the happy couple so many years of great adventures. Congratulations Morgan and Jordan!

Cassandra + Dave = Engaged

Ok, we need to just take a time out for a second. If you guys are anything like us, you are swooning over all of the adorable in this blog post. First you have the beautiful setting: Plymouth, Mass illuminated by a perfectly overcast sky, then you have flawless Cassandra and Dave, all tied together neatly […]


Ok, we need to just take a time out for a second. If you guys are anything like us, you are swooning over all of the adorable in this blog post. First you have the beautiful setting: Plymouth, Mass illuminated by a perfectly overcast sky, then you have flawless Cassandra and Dave, all tied together neatly with Chuck’s creative eye and we have ourselves a grand slam. I mean seriously. We are a little obsessed with everything about this session. In addition to*looking* good Cassie and Dave also have hearts of gold. We love the way Dave gets lost while looking at Cassie, and it’s so sweet to see how Cassie giggles in his presence. Chuck will be shooting their wedding later this year at the Ocean Edge Resort, and if these photos are any indication of how things will go then, we can’t wait to share more stunning images after their wedding!

Amanda + Jaco = Engaged

Chuck spent a morning photographing Amanda and Jaco in one of our favorite places, Concord, Massachusetts a few weeks back on a delightfully spring morning. They met up near the Old Manse, which was old stomping grounds for Amanda from her days as a tour guide there. While Amanda hails from the Western Suburbs of […]

Chuck spent a morning photographing Amanda and Jaco in one of our favorite places, Concord, Massachusetts a few weeks back on a delightfully spring morning. They met up near the Old Manse, which was old stomping grounds for Amanda from her days as a tour guide there. While Amanda hails from the Western Suburbs of Boston, Jaco is originally from South Africa and the two of them now call Illinois home. They will be getting married at perhaps our most favorite venue on earth (where we got married, in fact) in just a few short weeks but before the wedding we had to get them in front of the camera. We love the way Jaco looks at Amanda, and how it’s clear that Amanda feels right at home in his arms. We can’t wait to shoot their wedding at the Codman Estate later this month but for now we’re savoring their sweet e-session with Chuck!

Lindsay + Jeff = Married

There is something so romantic about winter weddings. The twinkling lights and warmth of a fireplace make coming inside from the blustery cold something of a destination. We’ve seen our share of snow this winter, but everyone welcomed the gentle fall of big fluffy snowflakes on Lindsay and Jeff’s wedding day. We were honored to […]

There is something so romantic about winter weddings. The twinkling lights and warmth of a fireplace make coming inside from the blustery cold something of a destination. We’ve seen our share of snow this winter, but everyone welcomed the gentle fall of big fluffy snowflakes on Lindsay and Jeff’s wedding day. We were honored to have the opportunity to tell their story and loved the thoughtful details they infused their wedding day with. From the donation to an animal rescue in lieu of guest favors to the roster of amazing people they chose to invite as their guests….no detail was left unattended. Kind-hearted, loyal and full of love, Lindsay and Jeff were a joy to work with. We are so happy for you two and wish you nothing but the best! Congratulations!

Lucy + Matt = Married

There is something magical about winter weddings, and this one is so *right*. Twinkling lights, fur shawls, traditional elegance and a cozy gathering of friend and family….Lucy and Matt’s wedding was just perfect. Of course its fun to photograph all of the pretty details but what makes this wedding so special is the couple behind […]

There is something magical about winter weddings, and this one is so *right*. Twinkling lights, fur shawls, traditional elegance and a cozy gathering of friend and family….Lucy and Matt’s wedding was just perfect. Of course its fun to photograph all of the pretty details but what makes this wedding so special is the couple behind the details. Lucy and Matt are genuine, charismatic and have hearts the size of Texas. They are as beautiful on the inside as they are on the outside, and we couldn’t feel more fortunate to capture their wedding day. Their reception at the Tuscan Steakhouse, L’Andana was the perfect backdrop for their celebration and its clear the guests thought so too. Special thanks to our good friend Deb for joining Summer Street for the day with her photo ninja skills, and Congratulations Lucy and Matt. We wish you so many years of health, happiness and good wine!
