Margaret & Jamie: Engaged – The Crane Estate

Frequent readers will have heard this before, but when couples ask, "Where should we do our engagement photos?" one of the things I'm always asking is, "What are we not going to get to do on your wedding day? Where will we not be able to go?" A few days before the recent Fourth of July holiday, Margaret and Jamie did just that. They're getting married later this year in downtown Boston and planned their engagement photos for the stunning Crane Estate in Ipswich. I even had time to do a little flying. A few favorites:

Holly & Al: Married – Charles River Museum of Industry and Innovation

One of the most enjoyable things about photographing wedding is that I'm constantly invited to photograph places and venues I've never been to before (and in some cases didn't know existed prior to meeting a couple). Throw in some extended family connections, a fantastic party and a late-night brass band playing, "You Can Call Me Al," and you've got a the recipe for an amazing wedding. Three weeks back all these things came together at the Charles River Museum of Industry and Innovation with Holly and Al (and Stephen Grigoriou). waltham ma wedding photos new england wedding photographer new england wedding photographer first look first look waltham new england wedding photographer doug levy new england wedding photographer doug levy charles river museum of industry and innovation wedding ceremony charles river museum of industry and innovation charles river museum of industry and innovation wedding reception charles river museum of industry and innovation wedding reception charles river museum of industry and innovation wedding reception charles river museum of industry and innovation wedding reception charles river museum of industry and innovation wedding reception

Katie & Matt: Married – Essex County Club

Almost 8 years ago, my friend Ned Jackson introduced me to Ali and Shannon whose gorgeous wedding I photographed just a few months ago my own, at the Essex County Club. Ali and Shannon are the kind of couple that Jess and I would love to hang out with...except they live in New Zealand. Given how awesome they are though, you can imagine how excited I was last summer when Ali's sister Katie reached out to inquire about my photographing her wedding (at the same venue nonetheless). Katie and Matt's wedding was a couple of weeks back, and today I'm excited to share photos from their day. I was joined by good friend Eric McCallister, and many of his photos appear below.
