WHAT ABOUT WHAT?

If you've come here looking for more work after visiting our website you're crazy....just kidding, you've come to the right place! This is a place where Mike and I can showcase some of our most recent work--if you're here and the last post is from months ago just remember that our priority is always keeping up with our event editing and getting images to our clients on time! Sadly, the blog, while we love it, doesn't always make it to the top of the to-do list. Rest assured, we'll be back, we always are! In the meantime feel free to get in touch via our contact form!

I’ve been having a hard time lately with wanting to just put all of the images from the wedding on the blog…meaning you would be scrolling through about 700-900 images per wedding.  Which…would be ridiculous!  But with this wedding again, there is just so much amazing going on that I had a hard time narrowing it down.  So, if you love this and want to see more, maybe you should just leave a comment and I’ll share the full gallery with you.  Maybe that should just be what we do for every wedding because they’re kind of like my babies and I love them all and want them all to have their own floor space and time to shine!

So here we find ourselves again with Alix and James but with time with a gorgeous Lake Winnipesaukee wedding where they rented out an amazing private home for the week and hosted a stunning event with the help of Renee Sabo and her team from Simple Details Events.  From the fun food that Caper’s Catering provided to the band Airtight that had everyone dancing and the breathtaking views of Lake Winnipesaukee this wedding could not have been any more beautiful–oh, I forgot to mention that Alix may just be one of the most emotional people I have ever met and is moved to tears by almost everything, which in turn moves everyone around her to tears, so the happy cry fest really just made this wedding even more special! Stay tuned for a video that will really showcase that element of the day in the not so distant future!

Did I mention that our very own Emmie did a reading at the wedding, Sawyer was the ring bearer, and Chase was an usher? See if you can spy us in the big group picture!  Got to love their daddy’s cousin Alix!  Because of all of their involvement in the day we would up asking Ben Burrows from A + B Weddings to come and shoot with Mike and he did an amazing job and we can’t thank him enough! winnipesaukee wedding 2016-03-22_0022 2016-03-22_0023 2016-03-22_0024 2016-03-22_0025 2016-03-22_0026 2016-03-22_0027 2016-03-22_0028 2016-03-22_0029 2016-03-22_0030 2016-03-22_0031 2016-03-22_0032 2016-03-22_0033

From the moment I first pulled up to the Fruitlands Museum for our very first wedding there I fell in love with this venue.  So when Alison and Rick hired us to be a part of their day we were super excited to be back!  I remember bumping elbows with some of the members of the band and looking out at the sweeping views overlooking the Nashua River Valley and talking about just how amazing it is and how it really must be one of the best views in all of Massachusetts.

I’m going to try to contain the gushing…but it’s hard because there are so many things I love about this place! The getting ready room is perfect for the girls and they really did such a great job with the decor in there and the amazing light that pour in means that it is hard to take a bad picture! And then cocktail hour area also serves for the perfect place to do a first look followed by really an epic spot for a ceremony out under the big tree always with a beautiful setup for drinks–the Fruitlands Museum Wedding is kind of straight out of things you only see in movies!

The tent is also gorgeous especially with the sides up and the sun that sets right behind the sweetheart table making for breathtaking views but also a photographer’s dream of gorgeous light for all of the things like the speeches, first dances and always an opportunity to grab the couple and head out for a few shots as the sun dips low on the horizon!

We had so much fun working with Planner – Adrienne Duys Mendonco from Gracie Lou Events, the florists at Orchids ‘n Blooms, the band Freestyle and our right hand man Tim who has been at every Fruitlands Museum wedding we have ever shot working super duper hard to make the day seamless!

Stay tuned for more Fruitlands Museum Weddings on the blog because we were there a lot in these past two seasons and I’m about to blog a ton before this years weddings start rolling in too quickly!

We had never shot a Wolfe’s Neck Farm wedding before and I realized the second that I set foot on the property that I needed to figure out a way to bring my family back to visit or camp or just hang out for an afternoon because it was just gorgeous and I have a soft spot for Freeport, ME.  I have great memories of having gone on big excursions to Freeport as a kid always getting good ice cream and walking around L.L. Bean! This late June wedding had absolutely perfect weather and the ceremony overlooking the ocean could not have been more magical! Katelyn and Ben are the couple that just wants to stare at each other all day and smile and high five about how happy they are as things around them are unfolding…I can clearly hear Katelyn’s voice on repeat in my head…she just kept walking around saying, “This is awesome!” This makes our job more so amazing because every time you put the camera to your face there is a happy smiling couple on the other side! I think this often happens when there is an awesome planner that the couple loves and trusts…because they know their wedding day is safe in her hands and can just sit back and enjoy the day!  So kudos to Adrienne with refineryevents.com for a wedding so well planned!!!

This is one of my absolute favorite places to photograph–if you want glamor and elegance and an all in one place affair with an all hands on deck staff who make the event perfect than a Lord Thompson Manor Wedding is the place for you.  The getting ready space is all white on white on white…which, I’ll be honest, is a photographer’s dream, and sometimes I find myself daydreaming of decorating my own house with all white floors, furniture, walls, linens, decorations, etc…anything you put in the space after that looks amazing!  The first look location is amazing because the couple has privacy down at the ceremony location and the family and bridal party can look on up on the balcony…later this balcony serves as the perfect place for the toasts and a group picture…they’re so efficient you aren’t wasting anytime on this shot and have a whole group! The other amazing aspect of Lord Thompson Manor is the amount of decor they have to choose from…the tablescapes are always amazing and really dress up every event!  2016-03-04_0001 2016-03-04_0002 2016-03-04_0003 2016-03-04_0004 2016-03-04_0005 2016-03-04_0006 2016-03-04_0007

Meet Emily and Nick.  Oh wait, you already have, here!  This was a fun family Atlantica wedding so you’ll spy some cute familiar Duval kids in the mix!  I was on mommy duty for the day so Mike photographed this one with the help of Emily Kan and she really did a lot of fun stuff with the guys during their time before the ceremony and honestly I couldn’t have done it without her–just when I think there isn’t more to learn about wedding, having been shooting them for 10 years now, I learn something!  Being a bridesmaid with four kids, one of them being 8 weeks old…it’s hard!  So new appreciation was found for all the mamas who love their friends and jump into the bridal party with tiny humans who still need them attending for the day–it’s a pretty big testament of love!  We had never been down to Atlantica in Cohasset, MA but immediately fell in love!  When Emily first started planning her wedding she had thought a big destination wedding with everyone there would be amazing…but then in starting to plan all of that the reality of lots of siblings, and nephews and nieces and friends who have to hop on a plane started to sound overwhelming…and Atlantica saved the day–it was a destination, it was on the water, and it was beautiful, but also accessible for both families and really was a perfect place to celebrate Emily and Nick! 2016-03-02_0001 2016-03-02_0002 2016-03-02_0003 2016-03-02_0004 2016-03-02_0005 2016-03-02_0006 2016-03-02_0007 2016-03-02_0008 2016-03-02_0009 2016-03-02_0010 2016-03-02_0011 2016-03-02_0012 2016-03-02_0013
