Marielys & James’ Wedding Checklist:

Stunning bride? Check.

Super cool groom? Check.

Perfect summer sunset over the water? Check.

Touching ceremony filled with songs and love? Check.

Room on the dance floor?  That’s a negative.

Marielys and James live happily ever after? TOTALLY!

One thing I love about a person is when no matter how much time passes you can always “pick up where you left off” as if you had just seen each other yesterday… and then catch up on all the happenings (read: gossip) in between.  And that was how it was when I met with Sara a month or so ago to talk about photographing her wedding.  We were so busy talking and laughing that her fiancé Andrew (who rocks by the way) had to basically pull the plug on us!

I am so excited to photograph their wedding next year because A) Sara and I share the same sense of humor so I think every aspect of working with her is going to be a blast, B) she and Andrew are just great (individually and together!) and C) between them they have three awesome kids who are non-stop fun. 

A few weeks ago we packed in a save-the-date, engagement and family session all in one down in Newport, RI where Sara & Andrew went on their 2nd date.  It was a perfect summer evening, the kids were all smiles, and no one got hurt…though it was a close call when Sara forgot she was wearing heels!

Looking so forward to the wedding!

Prior to our shoot Lauren mentioned that she and Ryan wanted romantic engagement photos of them out and about Boston because it is the city where they met, the city where they fell in love and the city where Ryan asked her to marry him.

We planned to meet in the Public Garden because what could more “Boston” than the Swan Boats and Cheers and the Back Bay skyline and the Garden itself (especially with the Ducklings in their Bruins attire!)?  Well, our plans were interrupted by VERY high winds and a “little” race known as the Corporate Challenge. And so we went to Plan B: protected Beacon Hill alleyways (and some areas beyond unlocked gates…shhh….), a roof deck and Faneuil Hall…and I have to say – we had a blast everywhere we went!

Soon they will be moving across the country to start the next exciting phase of their careers and lives together but for this one night in Boston, it was my mission to capture photos of them and for them…in Boston…where it truly all began for them.

And I know what you are thinking –  lots of smooching shots right?  Well because one or more photos from our session may be used for a save-the-date card I decided to keep many the “hey stop kissing for one second please and look at the lens and smile!” shots under wraps for now.  But I promise I also captured lots of smiling faces of this lovable couple!

Yesterday I headed out to the Brimfield Antiques Show for one of my absolute favorite events of the year.  I tell ya, it is a good thing I live in a 700 square foot condo – otherwise I would be one of those who show up with a U-Haul truck to pile in all of items I fall in love with!  Someday when I have a studio it will be completely decked out with Brimfield goods.  I swear. I swear. I swear.

Every year I hit up the tent of a guy who sells mirrors, frames and shelves made out of antique barn wood and tin.  I love this stuff (Wendy=slightly obsessed).   It reminded me that I wanted to share the wall display I did in my own home with some of the frames and a mirror.   I absolutely love it when clients get creative with their photos and display them as art.  There are so many fun and funky ways to enjoy your photographs that fit with the aesthetic of you home.  Why just save them on your computer???  Be on the lookout for some client collections here soon! 


PS That is me, waving “HI!” to all of you!  And yes, I know that I need to put something on top of that wine cabinet to fill the space between it and the frames.  Don’t judge.

I love the holidays because there are so many chances to get together with family and friends and this year I had my camera ready to capture it all.

Someday Quinn will forgive Auntie Wendy for taking so many photos of him during tubby time.   I couldn’t help it – he is Gerber baby cute.   But I am pretty sure he didn’t mind.  I haven’t met a 5-month-old that hammed it up for the camera as much as this little guy.  I think he gets that from his Mom.

Miss you guys already. Come baaaaaaaaackkkkkk!
