Cory & Vered: Married – Isabella Freedman Jewish Retreat Center

This is going to be a strong week for the blog as I wrap up the 2015 wedding season (safe for the mid-December wedding I have yet to photograph). Today I'm excited to share what can only be called a "peak New England" wedding. The weather and foliage literally couldn't have been any better for Cory and Vered's fall wedding at the Isabella Freedman Jewish Retreat Center in the Connecticut Berkshires. This wedding highlighted what has to be one of my favorite things about photographing weddings - just when you think you've seen every possible location, someplace amazing you've never heard of pops up.

My favorite thing about this wedding though might be one of the final shots of the night. Because it gets so much darker out in the western part of New England we were able to see many more stars than we ever do in the Boston area, which led to one of my favorite shots of the season.

Samantha & David: Married – Artists for Humanity

Sam and Dave, where to start...with the gorgeous light we had at their engagement shoot? Nope, we covered that. What about the gorgeous light we had for their first look? You can see that below, along with what are definitely some of the photos I've had the most fun taking this year. I was joined by my friend Caroline Talbot for this one, and she started with the guys at a downtown hotel, while I met Sam and the bridesmaids at a friend of her mom's condo near their venue, the gorgeous Artists for Humanity Epicenter. This was my first visit to AFH, and it didn't disappoint - previously I'd seen gorgeous images taken by many local wedding photographer friends and had wanted to photograph a wedding there for a long time. (I'm slowly knocking all of the Boston wedding venues off my list, the only one that keeps evading me is the public library...anyone? 2016? Anyone?)

That's enough of me babbling, onto the photos! A few favorites:

Erika & Julian: Married – Tyrone Farm

It's no secret I love shooting at Tyrone Farm - in fact, in the battle of my favorite New England wedding venues, Ian and his team would be in a neck-and-neck competition with Mary at the York Harbor Reading Room. When you combine a great venue with a gorgeous couple that planned what was probably the most raucous party I've been to this year, you know you're in for some great photos. I was joined for this one by good friend Meg Belanger, and many of her images appear below.
