Marybeth & Andrew: Engaged – Marblehead

Many of my career choices have nicely coincided with the ability to sleep in. Baseball games start at 7:05 and rare is the wedding you need to start photographing before 9 a.m. There are exceptions to everything though, and sometimes getting up at 4 a.m. is totally worth it. Marybeth and Andrew are getting married in downtown Boston on New Year's Eve, so it was great to be able to do something the complete opposite of that for their engagement shoot. Thankfully college roommate Jenn lives but 10 minutes from Andrew's family's house on the Marblehead shore, so I didn't have to get up at 3 a.m. (because clearly you have to draw the line somewhere).

The freedom that you have photographing that early completely worked in our favor when we wrapped up at the shore and headed to a basically deserted downtown Marblehead where we were able to get some of my favorite images from the day (shot while I was standing in the middle of the street - can't do that at sunset!) A few of those (and more) below.

Carol & Zach: Married – York Harbor Reading Room

Zach grew up spending his summers in Maine and it seemed only fitting that Zach and Carol  (now Californians), returned for their wedding a couple of weeks ago at the gorgeous York Harbor Reading Room. This was my third wedding at the Reading Room, and Mary and her team once again put on an amazing event. (For the record, she's the only venue coordinator in more than 150 weddings to ask me if I'd like the lights adjusted for better photos - and I can assure you that level of detail carries through the entire Reading Room experience). I was joined for the day by Ben (speaking of people who never disappoint), and many of his photos appear below.

It's not an exaggeration to say that Carol thought of everything - and it showed in the photos. From the custom table assignments to the lantern sendoff on the beach, we couldn't have had a more fun day (and the super moon, yeah...we planned that too...)
