Melissa and Paul: Wedding

Melissa and Paul were married on one hot Saturday (no literally:  the only hot Saturday) of the summer.  There’s something about Astor’s Beechwood mansion, the beaches of Newport, a super good looking couple and fabulous friends to make for a killer wedding.  Which it was.  Thank you to Melissa and Paul, et al, for a great day.  We had a blast, thank you.

Enjoy.

hotel in rye - Wonderful, glad I came across your blog.,

Jessica and Ben: married. (and good looking).

Ben and Jessica were married at The Peabody Essex Museum on one of the 10 gorgeous days this summer.  Everything about their day seemed perfect and the museum was such an incredible backdrop to a day full of love, friends, and family.  And lots of happy tears!

Thanks so much Jess and Ben.  We had such a great time.

Enjoy.

Jess loved her dress so much she spent a few minutes admiring it and thinking about her wedding day.

BEANTOWN BRIDE - WE HEART HITCHED STUDIOS! These photos are amazing!

Jen and Brad: hitched.

Jen and Brad had maybe the best weather ever for their gorgeous wedding (with a GORGEOUS bride) at The Wentworth By The Sea up there in New Castle, New Hampshire.  We had such an incredibly good time with them, we stayed long after we were done shooting to dance to The Sultans of Swing, the very best band in the area.

Enjoy their photos.  Thank you Jen and Brad, we love ya, we do!

Hurricane Danny: wet.

We’re trying to make a habit of not giving ‘sneak peaks’ to weddings.  By the time the photos are posted, the couple has already seen their whole edit.  This is one sorta, kinda exception.

Kat and Dan met years ago at Wanakee Methodist Camp in Meredith, NH.  Like a lot of summer camps, Wanakee’s grounds are gorgeous, rustic, and full of memories.  Because they met at the camp and were getting married at the camp, they were determined to be married at Wanakee’s gorgeous outdoor chapel in the woods.  Rain, shine, or hurricane.

Their photos came out gorgeous and we’re super excited to show them to Kat and Dan and the rest of ya.  Check back for those at the end of September (after the 27th).  In the meantime, I couldn’t help but post the two very wet photographers…. enjoy.

Jesse and Adam: mawied.

Yowza, what an enormous highlight of our season this wedding was!  Jesse and Adam are high school sweethearts, big Engagement Session stars of our website, and killer people.   They were married at the really gorgeous Topsfield Commons and Peter at Nu Image DJ kept everyone (and I think I really mean every. single. person.) on the dance floor all night.

Jesse and Adam, we love you and your families so much.  We were floating for days after your wedding and we are so honored we were there to capture your day.  So much love to you. thank you.
