Allison & Steve: Married – Boston College and Harpoon Beer Hall

If I were to think about where the best place to start this post is, I guess I'd have to go with Steve's ridiculously amazing proposal that I chronicled on their engagement photos post last fall. That's just the kind of people Allison and Steve are - the kind who on their pre-wedding questionnaire wrote, in the space where I asked if they had any other questions or thoughts about their day, "We wish our wedding was tomorrow!" They're the kind of people you just can't help but want to be friends with.

We kicked things off with a first look and portraits on campus at Boston College before their ceremony at St. Ignatius, after which we headed to the newly renovated Harpoon Beer Hall. If you're at all a beer lover, you owe yourself a visit to the brewery. They've always had a small gift shop and offered tours, but just last year completed this renovation that makes it basically the coolest new wedding venue I've seen in a long, long time (I was not paid for that sentence, really, not a cent.)

Special thanks to Jason Kan for his help with this one, and many of his images appear below.

Ciara & Mike: Married – Exchange Conference Center

Anyone who knows me knows, as a friend once put it, that I have the, "attention span of a flea." In application what that means is that I get really excited when I'm able to photograph at new and different venues around Boston and all over New England (like this coming weekend's northern New Hampshire wedding). Two weeks ago that meant my first trip to the Exchange Conference Center over in Boston's seaport area. It's a pretty cool spot - never before have I had the chance to watch a fishing boat prep for an outing while photographing a bride having her hair and makeup done!

Ciara and Mike chose the conference center in part because as seaport area residents, it meant basically getting married in their backyard, and they couldn't have had a better day for themselves. On what was one of the hottest days of the summer, we were treated to a constant harbor breeze, keeping us cool and freeing us up to wander the nearby boat docks in search of cool photos (check out amazing shaft of sunlight shot below that became an instant favorite).

Heather & Sri: Engaged – Boston University

Heather and Sri met at BU, so it was only natural that we visit campus for their engagement shoot. With their upcoming Labor Day weekend wedding being held more toward central Massachusetts, I loved that they wanted to spend their engagement shoot bumming around their old stomping grounds. This was my first time meeting these two, and I left with not only some fun photos and great anticipation for the wedding day, but a great pizza crust tip from Sri (which is especially helpful, because Jess and I are basically pizzaholics).
