Ryan + Angie were married on a particularly warm (for New England) afternoon in early October. It poured the entire ride from Boston up to New Hampshire and I was fully equipped with rain boots, jackets, and covers for all my equipment. But as soon as I arrived at the venue, the skies cleared and it was a lovely afternoon. I was with Ryan and his groomsmen before the wedding ceremony - Ryan was a bit nervous but they decided to take a cruise around the lake on their family friend's boat while waiting for the first look and that seemed to ease the nerves (and yes, I did accompany them on the boat!). The wedding ceremony was held on the shore of the lake and the reception was in a tent overlooking the lake. The wedding was a perfect mix of elegant and rustic. I second shot this wedding for Ashley, who I also shot Jonathan + Brieanne's wedding and know through t.e.l.l. New England. Here are a few of my favorites.
I had the pleasure of second shooting Rikki & Thao's wedding with Hillary back in July. Emily did our wedding photography back in May 2016, so I was very excited to have the opportunity to second shoot for her. Rikki & Thao got married at Hyland Orchard in Sturbridge, MA overlooking the orchard and surrounded by their friends and family (and puppies - it was a dog friendly wedding!). The wedding was beautiful (the event design by Kelly Golia Events), so I have quite a few images to share.
Hello again! I have been quite behind on editing, so am quite behind on sharing some work I have done this summer. I did a handful of weddings this summer and look forward to sharing more! I second shot this wedding back in June (!) with Sharon Watkins Photography at the Bedford Village Inn in New Hampshire. Eric + Kate, and their twin boys, had the perfect summer afternoon for an outdoor ceremony. Here are some snaps from the day.
We found ourselves with a free weekend and ended up, last minute, going to Maine last weekend. We stayed right outside of Camden and it was so beautiful up in that area. I had never really been much further north than Portland (besides a brief trip to Cutler, Maine last summer) and I'm glad we decided to go that far. The foliage was much more vibrant than it is here in Boston and everything was so cozy and fall-like.
We left on Friday night after work and it was about a four hour trip. We got to catch up on all the latest episodes of Dinner Party Download and Modern Love. Saturday we explored Camden and the surrounding area and then, of course, ended the day at a cozy pub and then ate some of the most delicious asian food at Long Grain. I have found that the two best asian dishes I have had have been in Maine (Anju, anyone?)
Sunday I woke up and got Dean up for the sunrise. We bundled up and trekked down to the ocean through the backyard of the hotel we were staying in. It was definitely worth it. I love that Maine is one of the first places in the country to see the sun rise.
After breakfast, we went to the top of Mount Battie to see some of the foliage before we left. I know it's cliche, but fall always reminds me how grateful I am to have grown up in New England and what a special place it is.
We went on our annual apple picking outing this weekend which, to me, means fall is officially here. I made a conscious decision to avoid using my phone to take photos, Snapchat, Instagram, etc. while we were there and instead focus on using my camera to capture the afternoon. I'm glad I did and I'm so happy with how these photos turned out. It's made me realize that I need to be more intentional about where I put my creative energy with all these social media outlets competing for attention.
We stopped by Doe Orchards again for apples this year. We discovered it last year and it's a great spot because it's never crowded and you walk straight in to the orchard from you car, it's nice and simple. After we picked apples we headed up to Portsmouth to have lunch and hang out for a few hours. Always my favorite spot to visit in the Fall.
