A springtime Boston Public Garden engagement

 
 

There's nothing lovelier than spending springtime in Boston with the one you love.

Cassandra & Chris: lovers of hiking, kayaking, and planting their garden together - with their beloved pup, of course! Chris lived in Boston for years before moving to New York with Cassandra, so they decided to road trip back to the city for their urban engagement shoot at the Boston Public Garden!

They practiced their first dance (and learned they may need a little MORE practice), popped a bottle of champagne (even though they love peach-flavored booze better) and smelled the spring blooms before the rain came.

They’re tying the knot in the Berkshires this summer - can’t wait to get the party started!

Justin & Victoria's intimate, springtime wedding at The Castle Hotel & Spa in Tarrytown, New York was everything and more - blooming yellow forsythia flowers, 50 of their closest friends and family, and the most epic dance party!

A spring, oceanside elopement in New England

Emma & Greg's oceanside wedding in South Dartmouth was one of the most unique days I've ever had the honor of photographing. On this misty, rainy day, Emma got ready in the colorful church daycare with her mother, father, and brother by her side. She slipped on her stunning BHLDN dress and glittery pair of Bagdley Mischka's before heading downstairs to the ceremony. Greg's family joined Emma's family in the pews, and in front of all eleven guests, they shared their vows and made their marriage official. 

A few raindrops came down as Emma & Greg walked down the dock to the waterfront. They kissed, hugged, and laughed before heading to dinner with their families. They're traveling to Korea in May for a traditional ceremony overseas. Wishing this sweet couple all the love and happiness in their marriage <3

Thank you to all the amazing vendors!

Mother's Day family shoot in Boston

Who has brown hair, runs faster than a cheetah, and wrestles like they're in the WWE Under 11 competition? Kate + Luke! These fantastic kids joined their parents to Boston on Mother's Day to commemorate the end of a chapter and the start of a new one. They're moving across the country in a few weeks, and wanted to give their last goodbyes to Boston. These two were even sillier than they were three years ago when I last photographed them for Kate's 8 year portraits. What I love about parents Brad + Angie is that they agree with my favorite motto: let kids be kids. Let the kids run wild on shoots, because before you know it, they'll be in their high school grad caps giving wonderful teenage attitude. Embrace the silly. Rock it.

Sidenote: Angie is also the fabulous small business owner of Brule Handmade Caramels! I did devour the bag in three days and it was oh so amazing. I'd highly suggest ordering some for yourself, and learn from my mistake and just go for the big bag.
