2016 - A Year in Review

2016 - A Year in Review


Morgan + Jordan = Married

I'm not sure if we've ever worked with a couple SO EXCITED to get married. Morgan and Jordan are so well suited for one another, and their love left us with a huge grin wiped across our face. With common loves for travel, adventure, God and the outdoors, these two are as beautiful on the inside as they are on the outside. Their Wedding day was filled with 300 of their closest friends and family, lots of great stories (and songs!) and a skies that had forecasted 100% chance of rain but not a drop touched their shoulders during their wedding. It was a pretty spectacular day. We were thrilled to have the opportunity to capture their wedding story (special thanks to our talented friend and second shooter, Ellie!) and wish the happy couple so many years of great adventures. Congratulations Morgan and Jordan!

Cassandra + Dave = Engaged

Ok, we need to just take a time out for a second. If you guys are anything like us, you are swooning over all of the adorable in this blog post. First you have the beautiful setting: Plymouth, Mass illuminated by a perfectly overcast sky, then you have flawless Cassandra and Dave, all tied together neatly with Chuck's creative eye and we have ourselves a grand slam. I mean seriously. We are a little obsessed with everything about this session. In addition to*looking* good Cassie and Dave also have hearts of gold. We love the way Dave gets lost while looking at Cassie, and it's so sweet to see how Cassie giggles in his presence. Chuck will be shooting their wedding later this year at the Ocean Edge Resort, and if these photos are any indication of how things will go then, we can't wait to share more stunning images after their wedding!

Amanda + Jaco = Engaged

Chuck spent a morning photographing Amanda and Jaco in one of our favorite places, Concord, Massachusetts a few weeks back on a delightfully spring morning. They met up near the Old Manse, which was old stomping grounds for Amanda from her days as a tour guide there. While Amanda hails from the Western Suburbs of Boston, Jaco is originally from South Africa and the two of them now call Illinois home. They will be getting married at perhaps our most favorite venue on earth (where we got married, in fact) in just a few short weeks but before the wedding we had to get them in front of the camera. We love the way Jaco looks at Amanda, and how it's clear that Amanda feels right at home in his arms. We can't wait to shoot their wedding at the Codman Estate later this month but for now we're savoring their sweet e-session with Chuck!

Shalini + Abhinav = Engaged

I'm just going to come out and say what you're all thinking. These. Two. Are. Gorgeous. Okay, now that that's out of my system we can gush a bit about how good Shalini and Abhinav are together. They will be getting married in Texas later next year but wanted to have some Engagement Photos in the city they met and fell in love. Shalini and Abhinav met in undergrad at BU and continued their courtship through medical school (also at BU) and into their medical residencies with BU affiliated hospitals. I don't know about you but we are voting that they get a Boston Terrier named Rhett ASAP. Thank you for allowing us to photograph you during this exciting time and we wish you nothing but the best!

Erin + Andrew = Married

Sometimes we have to pinch ourselves. Every day, we feel so incredibly grateful for the people we get to photograph. Erin and Andrew are no exception. Genuine, compassionate and full of love for life and one another, they are the real deal. When we first started shooting weddings, we'd get excited about the beautiful surroundings and magical qualities weddings brought out as special events. We still love a good party - but we become desensitized to stunning florals, perfect lace and bubbly cocktails when we are surrounded by the glitz and glamour of weddings every weekend. You know what doesn't get old, though? Love. Real, honest, raw love. It's the core of why we do what we do. The inspiration behind every shutter click and group photo. Sure, wedding blogs and magazines are beautiful (and I am taken by the latest wedding trends every week) but when we get to witness two people surrendering themselves for better or for worse to be a new family and surrender themselves for another person -  it's truly touching. Erin and Andrew's wedding was full of this kind of contagious love. From the way Andrew held Erin - to the way Erin's eyes filled with tears of joy throughout their wedding day - it was a truly beautiful day. Erin and Andrew, it's been a true pleasure working with you both and we couldn't be happier that you have found one another. We know the world will be a better place because you are a team. Congratulations!

Nicole + Fernando = Married

Nicole and Fernando were married on the most glorious July day. The birds were chirping, the sun was out, and these two love birds could not have been more excited to start their lives together as husband and wife. By now you've heard us raving about our Associate Photographer, Chuck, and today we have most proof of how fantastic his work really is. From the beginning, it was clear that Nicole and Fernando were going to have a classy, intimate affair with their closest friends and family - all the while keeping the emphasis on their commitment to one another. They kept their wedding details simple and exceptionally stylish (I mean, will you look at them!?) letting their love be the pedestal for such a sweet event. Their adorable son Aiden clearly stole the show on a few occasions with his contagious smile. We couldn't resist blogging the image of him digging for gold, so hopefully he'll forgive us when he's 16. ;) Nicole and Fernando, we are so happy for you both and wish  you many years of joy together as a beautiful family of three. Congratulations!
