On Sunday we had the opportunity to work with an amazing couple at Crane Beach in Ipswich, MA. I say Katie and Gabe were amazing not only because they were so much fun but because they were such troopers. Katie especially amazed me as the flies and mosquitoes came out for a hazy evening at Crane Estate before we went to the beach. Bug bites all around, Ariel and I releasing the shutter with one hand and swatting insects with the other. Katie and Gabe eventually running through the woods in a last ditch effort to escape. In the end however we came away with great images for their engagement session and all because they would not give up. Thank you both for staying to the end, we had a great time and hope you enjoy the photos.

When Heather and Brad suggested Halibut Point for their engagement session I was psyched! I’ve been wanting to do an engagement session there ever since Matt and I accidentally found it on one of our exploratory drives around Cape Ann. It is one of the most gorgeous, best kept, secrets of Cape Ann. When we met up with Brad and Heather this past monday afternoon, the fog had cleared and we were left with beautiful sunny skies spotted with amazing cloud patterns. We spent a couple hours wandering down by the ocean and at the quarry taking advantage of the great light. These two were so much fun to photograph. Matt and I are looking forward to their wedding this September. Here are some favorites!

Matt and I are working hard on editing all of Sabrina and Ron’s images from their wedding last Sunday at Elm Bank. We’re looking forward to having their slideshow up by tomorrow evening. For now I wanted to Share with you some of my favorite photographs from their wedding day. Sabrina looked absolutely gorgeous and it was quite apparent how hard she had worked planning every detail of their wedding day! This included polka dotted bow ties for the guys, Ron rocked a green and white one while the two groomsmen had pink and white complimenting their tan suites. I loved it! These two were an absolute joy to photograph, Sabrina started the day out a little shy of the camera but by the end of the day was hamming it up and modeling like a pro. They made our jobs easy and Matt and I had a blast. Thank you guys so much for sharing your special day with us!! We can’t wait to share more photographs with you but for now I’ll leave you with these:

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!

  • Chuck

    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!
