Meet Alyssa & Mike, one of my newest and sweetest couples! I met this happy couple a few weeks back while they were passing through Massachusetts in a quick visit to the East Coast to plan their intimate Maine wedding coming up this fall. We had chatted on the phone, and I instantly knew we would be a great fit. Alyssa told me about how they had originally planned a larger and more traditional wedding out in California where she and Mike currently call home, and realized that it just wasn’t them. They’re now having a small intimate fall wedding at the Arrows Restaurant in Maine (owned by Mark and Clark from Top Chef Masters!), and want to keep the priority on celebrating their day with their closest family and friends, and to have some awesome portraits of the two of them on their wedding day on the Maine coast (swoon!). By the end of our phone call, we were planning the logistics for their engagement session, and I was smiling ear to ear. To say I am honored to be their photographer would be a complete understatement.
This year’s season is off to an absolutely amazing start with Ally & Ryan’s classic Boston North End wedding! I knew that the day was going to be great, since I’ve known Ally since we interned together during our college years, and I’d received an excited text from her the night before the wedding saying that she and Ryan had been upgraded to a suite at the Intercontinental Hotel. Check out this view! Continue reading
Everyone can use a little quiet time in their life, and last week, I was able to meet up with Jill of Yoga With Jill for a chilly outdoor headshot session. It seems like quite some time ago, since in the past week, all the trees in the area have gone from completely stark to all in bloom! For those of you who practice yoga, you can appreciate the skill Jill has to be able to do this in the cold! Don’t let the warm sun fool you, there was plenty of wind whipping around us.

Okay, I’m warning you now, get ready for some serious love going on here. I have never met a more caring and sweet couple than Abbie and Devin. Ever. Abbie and Devin met when they were in theatre together, and get this – their first kiss was on stage, before they were dating! I’m happy to report, things have gone incredibly well for them since then!
I met this dashing duo last year when they were standing in as an engaged couple for a class I was in, found out Abbie was expecting, and that they still hadn’t announced it (check that post out here). Fast forward seven months, and their little bundle of joy is almost here! I was beyond excited when Abbie emailed me about a maternity session. We met at the Boston Public Library for a super fun morning filled with lots of snuggles and giggles.
Lesley had been trying to talk Andy into the idea of an engagement session for a bit, but he wasn’t exactly excited about the idea…
Fast forward to this past weekend, and there may have been some slight misdirection when she explained to Andy why they would be meeting up with me at the Boston Harbor Hotel. We were just going to talk about the wedding and maybe take a few photos. Maybe…riiiiiight.
Luckily, it was Lesley’s birthday, so Andy couldn’t be upset when I showed up with two cameras and an assistant! While it took a little bit of encouragement, I would say that Andy gave us a brilliant performance.
It’s time to seriously catch up on some blogging! This fall I shot with Kristen & Mark’s wedding with Laurie over at Catharine Morris Photography, and gosh, they were fun! It was one of those super rainy days, but it didn’t dampen this happy pair’s moods at all. The day was, simply put, a celebration of two families coming together, and having a whole ton of fun!
I arrived just in time to swing over to the boys room and get a few shots before they had to head down to the ceremony space.
I am beyond excited to be able to share this post with you, because these two little princesses are my very first nieces! Chloe and Eliza have already completely won over my heart, and with good reason. They were cuties from day one, as very healthy and happy twin baby girls.
One of my favorite parts about my job is the people I get to meet and spend time with. Over the past few years, I have gotten to know a lovely lady that you may recognize as Isabelle, one of the top 20 contestants on this season of American Idol! I’ve been lucky enough to work with Isabelle on a few occasions, and every time has been just wonderful. I’m telling you, she is an absolute sweetheart! With her first top 20 performance coming up as I type, I figured there is no better time to share some of the images that we worked together to make!
Just casually relaxing on the roof deck, and she’s still adorable!
Winter is definitely here in New England, with plenty of snow to last me a few seasons! Tara and Jeff had a great winter wedding on New Year’s eve, and I spent the day shooting with Lauren Tomasella Photography, while we ventured around New Bedford and Dartmouth. My afternoon started with Jeff and his groomsmen, while they put on their finishing touches at Jeff’s mom’s house.
