Rachel & Matt: Engaged – Strawberry Banke Portsmouth

Not all clients are created equal. Well, not all clients are clients, some are family. Rachel is Jess' cousin, and was a bridesmaid at our wedding back in 2011. We've all known Matt for a long time, and I couldn't have been more excited when they asked me to do their engagement photos (good friend Katie Noble is shooting their wedding so I can get my party on). Rachel and Matt and planning a summer wedding, so wanted to incorporate winter in New England to their engagement shoot. I'm always telling couples that the best engagement shoots are them doing what they do on a regular day off, what they do for fun - these guys couldn't have taken that advice any more perfectly. Throw in a low 50s "winter" day last week, and we had the makings of a fantastic shoot. A few favorites:

Marissa & Ian: Married – Gloucester

Two winter weddings? It's rare, but it happens, and 2019 just happens to be one of those years. Throw in that Marissa's sister Ally's wedding back in 2013 was an all-timer...and you know you're in for a great day. Going in, there was definitely some trepidation about the weather and the chance for some significant snow (but) shockingly, the weatherman was wrong, and we got just a dusting (just enough for some snowy photos!). Thanks to Marissa and Ian for braving the Gloucester cold and wind for some great outdoor images - a few favorites:

Lydia & Jonathan: Married – Park Plaza Boston

It's not often a winter brings not one, but two weddings to my calendar, but that's how this January has worked out. Today I'm excited to share the first of those, Lydia and Jonathan's recent Boston Park Plaza wedding. Good friend Meg Belanger and I spent one (freezing cold) day at the hotel, St. Cecilia and the Public Gardens with these two. This wedding was coordinated by Patty Fratto of Perfectly Coordinated, and a big thanks is owed to her for ensuring a flawless winter wedding went off without a hitch. Lydia and Jonathan - thank you for kicking off my 2019 wedding season in style! You braved a frozen New England Saturday all in the name of great photos. A few favorites:
