When Matt and I first sat down with these two, we knew they would be absolutely awesome to work with! They had all sorts of ideas for their engagement session, Chuck particularly had some very strange ideas which were vetoed quite quickly by Leslie. One of the ideas however stuck and we ran with it, Chuck desperately wanted to mock the famous American Gothic Painting. They truly went all out; pitchfork, apron, right down to the pendant on Chucks neck. Yes, I did say Chucks neck…They decided to swap roles for the photo. On Sunday Matt and I arrived a bit early to the Salem Witch House where we had decided to re-create this shot. We were a little worried that we wouldn’t recognize these two. From a mile away we spotted a couple walking down the street in full American Gothic attire. Matt and I are currently working on editing these wonderful photographs, for now I have posted one of the shots taken after the actual mock. Just to wet your appetite a bit. Their enthusiasm continued throughout the rest of the shoot, they had lots of special places around salem they were excited to take us to! Not only did they do such a good job of planning the session but they made our job so easy! These two were laughing and joking around the entire time! Thank you both for all the effort and enthusiasm you brought to the shoot! We can’t wait to photograph your wedding next May!

    Fantastic! Thank you for putting up with us and for setting these up.
    PS. Is it too late to photoshop a full head of hair for me? 😀 Just Kidding.
    Cheers, ChuckReplyCancel

When Matt and I first met Annie and Josh for their initial meeting, we were both instantly excited about the possibility of documenting their wedding day. Photographers are always looking for something new and different so of course when they told us their would be llamas at the wedding reception… This sort of piqued our interest. The fact that Annie and Josh were both so excited about all this made it ten times better because we new they would be just the type of couple we enjoy working with! Needless to say we were thrilled when they told us they’d like to have us photograph their wedding day. Annie has been awesome since then, emailing me with lots of questions and compliments on our work…We truly love building relationships with all of our couples so we love these interactions! We were so excited to officially kick off our busy wedding season with Annie and Joshes (Brady too!) engagement session this past weekend. We had absolutely amazing weather, it was almost too hot at 4:30 in the afternoon when we met! These guys were absolute rockstars putting up with Matt and I running around like idiots (we get a little over excited when we have cameras in our hands), Brady was a little rockstar too and didn’t get mad when I kept calling him a her (sorry Brady!). Here is a sneak peak for you guys as we get all the others ready! Thanks for making our job so easy, you guys were awesome models! We can’t wait for your wedding at the Bradley Estate this July!

Hi everyone! Just wanted to make a quick post with some beautiful images from Lisa and Brian’s wedding this past December. This will be the first installment with a few of my favorite getting ready images! On a different note, Matt and I have been very busy meeting with wonderful clients about their 2010/2011 weddings. We feel so blessed to be working with so many amazing couples this season! We also celebrated our son Aydon’s first birthday, this past Friday. Happy Birthday Aydon! It has been an amazing year with our baby and we look forward to what this next year has in store! Without further ado, here are pictures from a beautiful winter wedding!

Hi everyone! I just wanted to share a few family photos with you guys. Matt and I decided to take Aydon down to local, Good Harbor Beach, yesterday for Easter. We packed up cameras, towels and sunblock and headed out for the afternoon. We were shocked to find the beach packed, I mean really packed, with people in a whole range of attire. Many kids and some brave adults had bathing suites and were enjoying the refreshing (cold!) water. I couldn’t believe how warm it was for just the beginning of April. This was Aydons first trip to the beach since last summer when he was a mer 4 months, he absolutely loved it. He was a bit skeptical at first, giving us a disgusted look as we plopped him down in the sand. Within 5 minutes however, he was toddling everywhere, making a beeline for the water whenever he could. He got extra brave towards the end and was running around in the water after we stripped him down to his diaper. We spent a good half hour playing in the water enjoying this unusually warm weather. I can’t remember the last time I went to the beach in April! Here are a few pictures from our afternoon:

Where do I start… The wedding was a blast. Ashley and Sean got married December 27th, 2010 in Wellesley, MA. The ceremony was held in the beautiful St. Pauls Church; the church was only made more beautiful by all the christmas decorations still up and smiling faces of Ashley and Sean. The ceremony was followed by an equally beautiful, elegant and fun reception at the Wellesley Country Club. The whole evening went perfectly, Ashley and Sean were so cute together and their happiness was quite evident. Congratulations to the both of them! Last but not least… Here are the pictures!

Right before leaving I made a couple laps around the dances floor to see if I could catch any last minute, fun dance shots… I’m very happy I did! I promise no one is being hurt in this photo… Just lots of fun being had!
