An autumn Beacon Hill / Boston Public Garden engagement session

Pumpkins, pink roses, and cupcakes, oh my! This quintessential Boston engagement shoot will leave you speechless! From Beacon Hill to the Public Garden, Chelsea & Roger rocked their fall session. 

An autumn Beacon Hill engagement in Boston

Aditya flew all the way from Chicago to Boston to see his beautiful bride-to-be Megha for their utterly Boston engagement shoot! The pair loves Beacon Hill, so they woke up early on a grey Saturday to bring some sunshine into the city! They're tying the knot in India this month - congrats to the happy couple!

An historic autumn Newburyport, MA wedding

Not many people get to say “I do” twice… except for Andrea & Dan!

Love is overcoming all obstacles, no matter how big or small, and coming out the other end stronger than before. Andrea & Dan embody this truly and completely. This May, the couple learned the heartbreaking news that Dan’s father’s brain cancer had returned. Family is paramount to Andrea & Dan, and they decided to put together a wedding in just three days time, because a wedding without Dan Sr. wouldn't be a wedding at all. With only their immediate family present, they pledged their love to each other with tears in their eyes, and headed to the beach for their husband & wife portraits and dinner. But the party was still on for October 15th! They got ready in the elegant, historic Garrison Inn in Newburyport and gathered at night at Steeple Hall at Mission Oak Grille. All of Andrea & Dan’s friends and family joined them to renew their vows, enjoy a meal together, eat cake, and tear up the dance floor for the #RileyRerun!

Thank you so much to all the amazing vendors!

An autumn engagement shoot in Westford, MA

Kelly & Joey: bubbly, believers in magic, and head over heels in love. They met on Nantucket through friends, started dating, bought an old house to completely remodel, and are even proud puppy parents! They're ready to party at their wedding next fall, and I'm so exited to be joining them! They certainly made some fall magic out in the countryside on their engagement shoot <3

An autumn historic Pierce House wedding in Lincoln, MA

“When the root is strong, the fruit is sweet.” - Bob Marley

Katie & Roger: football fanatics, adventurers abroad, and four-legged parents,  sprinkled with the perfect amount of humor and sass. Well, maybe that’s just Katie, but Roger has his moments, too. On a misty October Sunday at Pierce House in Lincoln, Katie anxiously awaited her ceremony upstairs. She wore a St. Michael charm with a Winnie-the-Pooh quote inscribed on the back in honor of her father. She included bright, tropical flowers in her rich autumn bouquet, a nod to Roger’s Jamaican roots. And speaking of Roger, he made the ceremony arch with his own two hands!

Their families stood close by as they said their vows and shared their first kiss. With fall being their favorite season, they made sure not to skip any fabulous fall details - pumpkins, hot apple cider, gold glitter, romantic roses, and even Tom Brady’s head on a stick for the photo booth (it is football season, after all). They TORE up the dance floor like nothing I’ve ever seen before! Katie & Roger ended the night with an epic smore’s bar and a choreographed dance - and off to Belize they went!

Thank you to all the fabulous vendors!

An outdoor puppy-filled anniversary session

Matt & Melissa - where do I begin? From their engagement shoot complete with an ice cream run, lunches to plan the wedding, a bridal shower in the rain, a surprise video filming, and finally their wedding, these two have become such amazing friends of mine. They recently celebrated their first wedding anniversary, and their adorable pup Hunter joined them for an autumn shoot!
