Allison & Mike: Engaged – Rockport

Looking out the window today, it's hard to believe this shoot was only two weeks ago (and I'm jealous that as I write this, Allison and Mike are back in Texas where it's most certainly not 19-degrees). They were in town for a long weekend of wedding planning, and we managed to find a few minutes for their engagement shoot up along the coast in Rockport. I hadn't been there in a few years, but clearly need to revisit it soon, the photos possibilities are limitless. Here's a few of my favorites:

Kathryn & Tyler: Married – Hampshire House

It's been quite a few years since I photographed a wedding at the Hampshire House (I think it was literally my 5th or 6th wedding ever), but it was fun to go back to close out my 2014 season with Kathryn and Tyler. As I mentioned in the post from their engagement shoot, these two met in high school (and had photos from their prom at the wedding!) Their wedding day now feels like it was the last warm day of 2014, especially when as I type this, Dark Sky is telling me it's currently 19-degrees outside with the windchill. Spending the day with these two, running around the Public Garden and Beacon Hill for portraits, and then being part of their ceremony and reception were all things that direclty lent to one of the warmest, most intimate and welcoming weddings of the year. Special thanks goes out to Michele and her team at the Hampshire House for making sure everything went off without a hitch. A few of my favorite images:

Caroline & Ben: Married – Five Bridge Inn

Today I'm excited to share my second to last wedding of the 2014 season, Caroline and Ben at Rehoboth's gorgeous Five Bridge Inn. As Jess and I were driving to the wedding, it was absolutely pouring. No raining, not misting, it was, "Holy crap, hurts when it hits you, pouring." Now as a wedding photographer, it would be awesome if every Saturday was 75 and sunny, but that's the fun and challenge of it - you have to be able to make amazing photos regardless of the weather. However, Caroline and Ben's day turned out to be not that much of a challenge - the closer we got to the inn, the more the rain slowed, and by the time we were ready for the first look, the lawn had even drained enough for photos on the grass. Throw in a few llamas (yeah, you read that right), some great fall foliage, and a best man's toast for the ages, and you can see why Jess, Jackie and I had so much fun with Caroline and Ben.
