fruitlands museum wedding - christina + patrick!

Back in September I got to spend a very special day with 2 of the coolest people I’ve ever had the pleasure of knowing! Since our first meeting over beers, to their whimsical carnival engagement session, I knew Christina + Patrick were the kind of couple whom I had dreamed of photographing. When a couple has complete trust in you and they are brave enough to be completely real (and completely silly) in front of the camera, magic happens. 

From the moment we arrived at Fruitlands Museum and saw that view I knew it was going to be one for the record books. The whole day left such an impression on me, the highlights of the day started even before work began when my assistant Ryan and I both enjoyed a delicious farm to table burger for lunch in the cafe (anyone who knows me knows that I am at my best with a full stomach). My favorite moments were seeing Christina in her gorgeous dress and flower crown, Patrick’s expression during their first look (and pretty much all day), their gorgeous greenery and florals (designed by Whim Events), anytime Patrick wore his super amazing hat, their ceremony overlooking the Nashua River valley, an epic sunset and an even more epic dance party. 

Even months later I am still grateful for being the one who got to capture it all. Here are my favorites:

boston's north end engagement session - ariel + zach!

Ariel + Zach love going into the city and exploring without a plan and that just happens to be my favorite way to photograph (ok I usually have a little bit of a plan). I jumped on the chance to explore somewhere new for me, Boston’s North end. This was such a fun shoot and Ariel + Zach killed it in front of the camera. Plus, cannolis. 

Spending the afternoon with these guys has me very excited for their New Hampshire wedding next July, I am counting the days to summer already!

metropolitan waterworks museum wedding - helen + noah!

Helen + Noah are travelers, foodies and love trying new things. They got engaged while backpacking the lost coast in California and celebrated with wine in Sonoma and seafood in San Fransico afterward. She loves his smile and confidence, he loves her intelligence and her laugh. They are truly a wonderful couple and it was such a pleasure capturing their love.

I am excited to share some favorites from their industrial chic wedding at the Metropolitan Waterworks Museum, which has quickly become one of my favorite venues. Their first look took place up in a giant, historic steam powered pumping engine, definitely a first! Besides the unique location, what really stands out about their wedding day was the genuine emotion and excitement that I witnessed throughout the day, as evidenced in the photographs below. Helen + Noah have the love and support of so many people and have an amazing future to look forward to. I wish them the best as they continue on their adventure together!
