Jo & Arthur Engagement Session in Charlestown MA

The day Arthur asked Jo to be his wife, they went for a nice relaxing bike ride in Charlestown MA near the Navy Yard. When he found found a spot that felt right he suggested they sit for a bit and enjoy the view. Then he bravely popped the question and she said yes. When we met and they hired me as their wedding photographer, Arthur suggested we revisit the same location for their engagement photos and I knew I would get some great emotional moments.

We started at the Charlestown Navy Yard, but the sun and heat of the day forced us to find some shadier spots.

A nice big tree, provided a shady spot and some soft light.

A fun couple that was up for anything. Here they are dancing in the streets. This tree lined cobblestone parkway has an old New England feel.

Even out of focus, the tree lined street made for some nice framing.

A fun and playful couple.

The dappled light on the brick wall made a lovely backdrop.

We found some rusty buildings along the way and Jo was excited about getting a more industrial look.

This is where it happened.

On the boardwalk. A meaningful look.

And a little splash of color.

I am looking forward to photographing their wedding at Hei La Moon Boston MA in September

Kim & Jay Wedding at the Andover Country Club

I had so much fun photographing Kim & Jay’s wedding at the Andover Country Club in Andover Massachusetts. The sense of anticipation was so strong during the getting ready that I got too many quiet personal moments to share here. Thanks Kim for helping me make such great personal portraits.

Mirrors and wedding veils are a great combination.

As Kim walked down the aisle at St Michael’s on her wedding day, Jay saw his bride again for the first time.

Jay’s groomsmen were always ready with a joke to lighten the mood no matter what was going on.

The window light in the Bridal suite at Andover Country Club is just gorgeous.

The best man checks to make sure he has the wedding rings.

What a fun group of friends to work with. Kim and Jay were surrounded by their close friends and family. I had such a blast making pictures with them.

Remember the photo earlier of Jay seeing Kim for the first time? This is what he saw.

The great thing about St. Michael’s is how bright and open it is. The huge windows let in tons of soft light, I don’t even need to use a flash and there is lots of room to move around and get shots from every angle of the wedding ceremony.

Making enough time for photographs not only allows me to fully document your day, but it also is a time to for the couple to relax and enjoy some private moments together before the grand entrance.

Up-lighting folks. I can’t say enough nice things about up-lighting. It will make your reception look more gooder.

The happy couple really were happy. Their personality and sense of humor shined throughout the day.

And especially during the best man speech.

In addition to being a photographer, I am also a father to two of the most adorable little girls you ever saw. So yeah, I have a soft spot for the Father -Daughter dance.

This is about as close as I get to photographing sporting events.

With some extra lighting and a little creativity, nighttime can be the right time to make a stunningly dramatic portrait. I love the way the back-light catches the veil making it glow.

Thanks to all the vendors who helped make this wedding possible.
