gloucester cruiseport wedding

Ashley and Dean planned a beautiful Gloucester Cruiseport wedding for what should have been spring, but we are in New England in 2015 and spring is a bit late this year. The weather didn’t matter, these two just wanted to throw a great party with their family and friends. Our instructions were specific: candids, candids, candids. We love when a couple just wants us to go out there and tell the story. It’s what we do best.

This was a pretty easy start to the wedding season. An incredibly fun group of people who loved to dance. The wedding party was awesome. No one complained even once when I brought the entirety of them outside for photos.

We were so happy to see Max from CZone Music when we arrived at the Cruiseport. Max is the best! We’ve been lucky to work with CZone a bunch over the last few years and they really know how to get a crowd going. The dance floor was packed, solid for the whole night. The last photo of the night, with Dean sprawled out on the floor says it all.

Here’s some of our favorite images:

Wedding Venue: Gloucester Cruiseport

Bride and Groom at the Menemsha Fish House, Martha’s Vineyard

This October Beach Plum Inn wedding was one for the record books. E. & N. planned their destination Martha’s Vineyard wedding with the hopes of throwing an epic party for their friends and family to remember. This wedding did not disappoint!

The bride and groom kept things fairly small, and only needed one photographer so I was flying solo on this day. Honestly, I love working with Ashley when we have the opportunity, and I enjoy working with a second photographer (when Ash isn’t available), but this was the type of wedding that didn’t require a ton of family portraits or “must have” photos.  E. & N. really cut me loose and except for a couple of portraits at Menemsha Harbor, this bride and groom really just wanted me to focus on the story which is what every wedding photographer wants to hear.

I can’t remember being more accepted and ignored more at a wedding in my life. When I write “ignored” I am speaking positively about being able to make photos in an environment where guests aren’t put off by having a photographer present. It might have been my fly-on-the-wall cologne, or the majestic view, or the absolutely perfect Autumn weather, but whatever it was allowed me to make photos in complete serenity.

The Beach Plum Inn, as I’ve said before, is one of our favorite wedding venues in the world. It’s small and quaint, but with impressive and expansive grounds. It’s something, I feel, is completely unique to the island of Martha’s Vineyard and New England overall. And the food… I can’t even describe the level of incredible.  Can’t wait to be back this September!

MV Island Weddings Magazine - Winter | Spring 2015

MV Island Weddings Magazine – Winter | Spring 2015

There is a theme to our published work from 2014… Martha’s Vineyard! We love that island and can not wait to be back there in 2015 for the handful of island weddings we’ve got on the books already. And we were pleasantly surprised to find out that we had three different shoots make it into two different print magazines.

The first was a small image in Well Wed on their feature on the Beach Plum Inn. The Beach Plum Inn is one of our favorite spots up island. It’s an incredible location with so many unique opportunities for great wedding photos. You can imagine our excitement when the Well Wed team emailed us about our photo.

The very next week we got a call from Martha’s Vineyard Magazine regarding photos that we shot with Kristen Gosselin of KG Events and Design. Last Summer we hooked up with KG Events for an epic day of styled shoots! We had a sunrise on the beach theme with a gorgeous tablescape in Oak Bluffs and a sunset shoot at Captain Flanders House in Menemsha. Kristen and her team crushed it! No wonder Island Weddings wanted to run photos from the Oak Bluffs shoot.

So as we are getting excited over getting a feature for this styled shoot, we sent the editor a real wedding for consideration. They loved it and ran a full feature on Matt and Sheila’s Beach Plum Wedding. Ashley and I were high-fiving for about three straight days. What a great week for our photography!

bride and groom portrait, the bridge at Tewksbury Country Club

 

Tom and Danielle planned a beautiful Tewksbury Country Club wedding last September.

Danielle has seen us work a bunch of times. We first met at her brother’s wedding 3 years ago and again at her best friend’s wedding 2 years ago. You could say that we were waiting for THAT call… the call from her telling us she was engaged. It came and we were thrilled!

It’s a unique feeling to see familiar faces when we are working a wedding. It really makes us feel at home to recognize those that we’ve photographed before. Even more, it’s great to BE recognized by family and friends in the crowd. This is one of the hidden perks of wedding photography… being a part of the experience for the couple and her guests. We want to be remembered.

More importantly, we want to be remembered as the photographers that made kept things light and fun. We had a lot of fun with Tom and Danielle last September. Unfortunately, Danielle has no more siblings, but hopefully we get to see her again at a friend’s wedding!

intimate boston wedding portrait

 

Christina and Adam planned a small, intimate Boston wedding last fall and invited me along as their photographer. When I originally spoke with Adam last summer, I was so excited to hear about what he and Christina had planned. They organized a ceremony and small reception at Legal Harborside and planned a first look and portraits around the city before the festivities were to begin.

Small events like this mean that we can do whatever we want! We don’t have to plan our photography around the timeline of the wedding, and both Adam and Christina liked the idea of taking a few hours before the ceremony to have a first look and then hit up as many spots in Boston as we could. Although there were some challenges, like traffic and a wardrobe issue, we were still able to get to Fan Pier and the Northern Ave. Bridge, Christopher Columbus Park and the North End. Not bad for 90 minutes on a Saturday… in October.

It was a gorgeous evening and the view from Legal’s 3rd floor made you feel like your floating over the water. The ceremony was short and sweet, just as the bride and groom wanted. I really appreciate when a bride and groom plans a wedding to exactly fit their dreams.

Here are some photos –
