Lucky for me, David and Luba reached out to me at the last minute to ask if could photograph their short backyard ceremony. I love the challenge of having a small window for capturing an authentic and intimate story. Although we only spent an hour together, these images make me feel a deep connection and let me believe that I gained access to a very real affection which I will reflect upon often for future inspiration.
We love photographing rehearsal dinners! Being able to get close and create intimate images that capture true joy and excitement is the best warm up for the big day !
In today’s crowded market of wedding photographers it can be challenging to tell the difference between experienced photographers and inexperienced photographers. One sure way is to ask one’s self, “are the photos I’m looking at predictable?” Above all of our artistic aspirations as experienced photographers, is how we strive to CREATE IMAGES THAT ARE SURPRISINGLY UNPREDICTABLE. We achieve this by paying attention to things that may be overlooked by others. As you look at the photos below please ask yourself:
How many photographers would see a boat harness as a big swing?!
How many photographers would see the slogan on Home Depot’s buckets as being a great engagement slogan?!
How many photographers would see the hull of a boat as the perfect frame for a photo?!
How many photographers would see a pile of boat support blocks as a giant Jenga game?!
If your answer to any of these questions is “not many” then you’ve found the right photographers for your wedding!
When people welcome me into their home it means everything for it brings out everything I am as an artist and human being. I am eternally grateful to John and Adrienne for inviting me to their family farm in Vermont for their engagement session. The dinner they prepared for me that evening from the farm’s magnificent bounty will sustain me forever.
When the light and people are just right, all you have to do is be present and keep things in sight!
Painting the roses red
We're painting the roses red
We dare not stop
Or waste a drop
So let the paint be spread
Beautiful words for embarking upon the "wonderland" of marriage!
No better place than our fair city of Newburyport for one-of-a-kind engagement portraits!
One of the most rewarding things about photography is having an appreciation for things that may otherwise be overlooked. We feel so lucky to have spotted these gold-glittered Vans that we know were chosen with the highest levels of love and excitement!
While we love all the fun and excitement of a wedding day, the thing we love the most is capturing a quiet, intimate moment that embodies the amazing journey about to take place.
We all know this expression as being able to have a simple view of what is right and wrong or good and bad which is most definitely a great skill to have. As artists, it’s a skill that enables us to create timeless images of emotion, beauty, and texture. Here’s some of our favorite examples from Turner Hill.
While there’s many great moments throughout a wedding day, there’s nothing like the intimacy and excitement during the getting ready time.
We love how flowers are emblems of a fresh and vibrant beginning!
Always great when “hearty” applies to rugged New Englanders and also to two great people wildly in love!
Nothing is a better reminder of why we love our craft than being able to capture a moment that is less about skill and more about slowing down and being present.
Of all the beautiful blessings that make up the 7 blessings of a Jewish wedding ceremony, we love the third blessing the best! Here's Melissa circling her groom as the blessings are recited. Beautiful words for a beautiful couple!
"May your journey together be blessed with generosity and forgiveness. May you enable each other to fulfill your dreams, and may you be committed to the paths of courage and hope. Blessed is the Source of Generosity who created such good, remarkable people…you two!"
Nothing more inspiring than a wedding on a family farm with the perfect blend of nature, elegance, and fun!
There's the classic definition....
the practice of obtaining information or input into a task or project by enlisting the services of a large number of people, either paid or unpaid, typically via the Internet.
Then there's our version....
Much thanks to Melissa and Julian and the great staff at Glen Magna Farms!
