HYATT REGENCY WEDDING PHOTOS | WILL AND CHRISTINE

Will and Christine were married in a wonderful ceremony in Oklahoma before they had their East coast celebrations, but they also wanted to celebrate with their friends and family here in Boston. I had the pleasure of photographing the event at the Hyatt Regency in Boston, where they held a traditional tea ceremony and other festivities.

We started coverage for the day by capturing Will and Christine at Boston Common, and I have to say, these guys looked absolutely stunning.  We had a good amount of time to capture photos of them together on the Common and so we made use of a few different locations each one offering something different and unique. It wasn’t hard to find a bad spot for these newly-weds, I think they would have looked great wherever we shot.

Being late fall, there was a chill in the air, which was refreshing after a hot summer, but it meant that we didn’t want to spend ages outside. The time we had was perfect though, and the early evening light was gorgeous to work with.

WILL & CHRISTINE | HYATT REGENCY WEDDING PHOTOS

They were holding their East coast reception and party at the Hyatt Regency in downtown Boston. This was the first time I was shooting at this venue and it was a pleasure to do so. The staff there were very accommodating and professional and the reception rooms are stunning and very grand; I can’t wait to shoot another wedding there.

Will and Christine held their Chinese tea ceremony shortly after we arrived back from taking their wedding photos on Boston Common and it was a packed house with lots of family. Christine had changed into her traditional red dress for the ceremony and Will had changed into traditional clothing as well and just when I thought these guys couldn’t get any more photogenic I was proven wrong!

WEDDING PHOTOS HYATT REGENCY BOSTON

WILL & CHRISTINE | HYATT REGENCY WEDDING PHOTOS

I had the chance to get some great family shots, both formal and candid, throughout the evening, and with some of their younger family and friends attending there were more than a few cheeky little smiles and grins from a group of young lads throughout the evening. I left before the serious dancing started, but I’m sure there were some great moves thrown down on the dance floor that evening. The Hyatt Regency in downtown Boston was the perfect backdrop for their wedding party and it was a treat to photograph there.

I had an absolute pleasure with Will and Christine and all of their families, and I wish them all the very best for their future together. Thank you both kindly for allowing me to capture your day for you and I hope you’ll have fun and fond memories looking back over the photos in the years to come.

ROCKPORT ARTS ASSOCIATION WEDDING PHOTOS | ASHLEY & JOHN

I’ve shot in Rockport, MA a few times in the past year, so when Ashley and John got in touch to ask about coverage for their wedding day by the sea, I couldn’t wait to hear what they had planned. They are based on Long Island in New York and were going to be traveling to Rockport to have their special day by the coast with their friends and family and I had the pleasure of capturing their photos.

I knew these guys were going to be great fun the day that I met them,  and that it would be another fun day photographing in Rockport. Although I’m not based out of Rockport, I will always gladly travel to this wonderful part of the state to cover a wedding. It has become one of my favorite spots along the Massachusetts coastline.

ROCKPORT WEDDING PHOTOS | ASHLEY AND JOHN

Ashley and John were getting ready at the Rockport Inn and Suites, a location I have actually shot at a number of times before, so it was a nice familiar start to the day for me. Both the bride and groom were very relaxed, and with John joined by all his brothers and Ashley with her sister and friend it was a very fun and easygoing morning all around.

Ashley and John were due to get married at Halibut Point State Park, but the late Fall weather turned a little too cold that day, and they decided to make the call early and move the ceremony indoors to the Rockport Arts Association instead. This turned out to be a wise call and was a good example of why it is important to have a back up plan for your outdoor ceremony in case  Mother Nature turns up in a bad mood.

WEDDING PHOTOS ARTS ASSOCIATION ROCKPORT MA

ROCKPORT WEDDING PHOTOS | ASHLEY AND JOHN

Ashley and John were doing a first look, and we were able to get ready for this at the waterfront in the very heart of Rockport. It was a great setting, and the local candy store allowed us to shoot from inside their premises, which gave us a few unique images and some amazing double chocolate fudge as well! As Ashley and John had decided to do a first look, it meant that we had lots of opportunities to explore the area and get their Rockport wedding photos in a number of different locations. We also had the time to head to Halibut Point State Park to get all the family and bridal party shots as well.

Although the weather wasn’t the best that could have been hoped for, it was still nice enough to head to the State Park and spend some time there. After capturing all of the family groups, we took a little more time and got Ashley and John some great images outdoors at the State Park as well.

This is a really great room and a wonderful space to hold a wedding. After the ceremony, it was straight into the festivities and it was an absolute pleasure to have been able to capture these in full until the end of the night for the newlyweds. Thank you to Ashley and John for letting me be a part of their wonderful Rockport wedding day and celebrations. I wish John and Ashley all the very best for the future together.

HYATT HARBORSIDE WEDDING PHOTOS | NIKI AND NATHAN

Niki and Nathan were married at the Hyatt Harborside in Boston last fall and I had the privilege of capturing their New England wedding celebration. The wedding ceremony was situated in a marquee outside on the lawn, and then the serious business of some awesome dance moves was conducted upstairs in the stunning ballroom over looking the harbor.

HYATT HARBORSIDE WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY

HYATT HARBORSIDE WEDDING PHOTOS | NIKI & NATHAN

I knew from the first meeting that these guys were going to be loads of fun and that their day was going to be filled with some great family and a whole load of good friends. The late fall weather was in their favor, although just a tad too crisp to hold the ceremony completely outside, but with the marquee on hand that didn’t prove a problem. This side of the harbor gives a wonderful look back across at the city and serves as the perfect backdrop to any Boston wedding.

I shot with both Niki and Nathan in their rooms while they were getting ready, which was an easy task as they were just a couple of doors down from each other. With Nathan completely ready, we headed outside to wait for Niki so we could capture their “first look” photos together. I wanted to capture the Boston cityscape in the background of the shots together so after getting the first look shots at the front of the hotel, we moved around to the waterfront to incorporate the view into their Hyatt Harborside wedding photos.

Their ceremony was held in the marquee outside the hotel and it was the perfect spot to keep people warm and still experience the views across the harbor. The ceremony included readings from both sides of the family and the chuppah was made from a tablecloth that had been brought to the states by Nathan’s Grandmother, and was very special to them both so it was wonderful to be able to incorporate it into their day.  The ceremony was filled with personal touches that helped narrate the story of their relationship, and involved family and friends that were present, as well as remembering loved ones that could not be with them.

When it was time for the party, I don’t know if I’ve seen more dancing at other weddings this year.  Right from the beginning, with their surprise first dance choreography, these two were busting out some amazing moves and the rest of the wedding party and guests weren’t far behind. I did manage to drag them away from the dance floor for a last few shots and an outside view across the harbor at night. It was a tad colder by that point, but the shots came out great and it wasn’t long before they were back on the dance floor to party the rest of the night away. Congratulations to you both and here’s to many happy years ahead for you both!

Each one was unique and just as much fun as the last. It was a true pleasure to have been part of so many happy days last year and I’m looking forward to what the next year will bring.

OCEANCLIFF WEDDING PHOTOS | RACHEL AND EVAN

As promised, I’m back on track with blogging and catching up on all the great New England weddings I was privileged to be a part of this past summer and fall. One of these was Rachel and Evan’s wedding, at the stunning Oceancliff Resort in Newport, Rhode Island. I photographed their Beacon Hill engagement session last year and was really excited to shoot their wedding day.

OCEANCLIFF WEDDING PHOTOS

OCEANCLIFF WEDDING PHOTOS | RACHEL AND EVAN

Oceancliff is a wonderful venue situated right on the waterfront in Rhode Island and it was the first time I was shooting here. Although living in DC now, New England is still home for Rachel and Evan and that helped in their choice to have the wedding here. I started as I normally do with the girls, capturing them getting ready and the fun they were having. Rachel was getting ready in the Gate House, a wonderful house separate from the main build on the grounds near the entrance. This old house provided a really great backdrop and had some really nice features to incorporate into their Oceancliff wedding photos.

Rachel and her bridesmaids were adding the final touches to the table place cards and getting there hair and make up done, so we had lots to cover over in the Gate House. Rachel looked stunning in her beautiful wedding gown and with the morning having flown past, it was nearly time to head over for the first look with Evan in the courtyard of Oceancliff.

Evan was staying in the main building of Oceancliff, so it meant that I could easily switch between him and Rachel to make sure that we got some shots of him and the guys getting ready.  We got these shots before their first look downstairs.

It was really nice shooting their first look, and as ever, I try and stay out of the way and let them have their time together during this very special moment. The courtyard at Oceancliff couldn’t have been any better a setting for this.

As with all Jewish wedding ceremonies, the couple signed the Ketubah, or marriage contract, before going out to the lawn at the back of Oceancliff for the wedding under the Chuppah. The Ketubah is a beautiful document and the signing is a very nice part of the day, shared with Rachel and Evan’s closest friends and family.

The evening sunset falling over the ceremony was beautiful and the setting was perfect, with the early fall providing just the right temperature outside for the ceremony. With the sea as a backdrop I don’t think you could really have asked for more.

BOSTON NORTH END ENGAGEMENT PHOTOS | SARA AND BRIAN

I had been looking forward to shooting Sara and Brian’s North End engagement photos ever since she got in touch mid-way through the summer. I had photographed one engagement session in the North End before, but was looking forward to finding some new spots with these guys, and was happy to say we succeeded.

NORTH END ENGAGEMENT PICTURES BOSTON MA

NORTH END ENGAGEMENT PHOTOS | SARA & BRIAN

Their North End engagement shoot had been postponed from mid October to mid November due to a bad weather weekend, but we ended up with such a nice weekend in November it all turned out OK in the end! Starting just down the road from Starbucks (always nice to kick start with some caffeine), we didn’t waste any time getting going, shooting in Christopher Columbus Park.

The North End provides countless engagement photo opportunities, as every turn down another road offers something new to incorporate and different light to work with. You also get the chance to use the city of Boston as a backdrop for a few shots. The cobbled section of the North End was definitely worth a stop off for some photos there.

One of my favorite parts of the North End to shoot in is the Paul Revere Mall in between St Stephen’s Church and the Old North Church. The quality of light there on this day was fantastic and Sara and Brian were so fun to work with, I couldn’t have asked for more.

Moving from here we had a change of outfits, which was easily done as they live right in the North End. We then made the most of the great little streets that you find throughout the North End. These streets are packed with character and wonderful architecture and are the ideal backdrops for a North End engagement session.

Nothing says the North End more than a great big Italian flag! Incorporating that into the shots gave us a nice splash of background color and using just the white of the flag gave us some nice high key images as well.

We finished up back on the waterfront to get some photos there and on the way back to their place found another great little spot where we still had some color left in the trees.

BRITTANY AND CHRIS NEW ENGLAND ENGAGEMENT PHOTOS

This may be one of the most varied engagement sessions I have shot, and man was it fun! If you like, old cars, balloons, countryside, old barns, chickens or airplanes then you may like what is coming next! Brittany and Chris’s New England engagement session was photographed in New Hampshire at the beginning of this month, just after hurricane Sandy postponed us a few days.

ENGAGEMENT PHOTOS NEW ENGLAND

NEW ENGLAND ENGAGEMENT PHOTOGRAPHY | BRITTANY & CHRIS

We started off photographing Brittany and Chris’ New England engagement session at Brittany’s sisters house. Brittany’s brother in law, Dana, is a mechanic and restores old classic cars as well, and so we were able to use some of these in the shoot. The classic old yellow Chevy still ran perfectly and after shooting with it around the house, Dana kindly drove it up to another location so that we could carry on shooting and add a little more variety into the shots. The old car fit perfectly into their New England engagement photos and it was really good fun working it into the session.

NEW HAMPSHIRE ENGAGEMENT PHOTOS

NEW ENGLAND ENGAGEMENT PHOTOGRAPHY | BRITTANY & CHRIS

After moving the car up into the hills, I wanted to show the New England scenery and place Brittany, Chris and the old Chevy all into it so it would fit nicely together. I also wanted to give them a good mix of black and white and color photos from their engagement session. The old car really lent itself to black and white, but I think with its yellow color, it would have been a shame not to have shown this off as well.

ENGAGEMENT PHOTOGRAPHER BOSTON AND NEW ENGLAND

NEW ENGLAND ENGAGEMENT PHOTOGRAPHY | BRITTANY & CHRIS

It was an overcast day with the odd burst of sun and more common threat of rain, but it held off for most of the day. The light was actually really nice to work with and it turned out to be a classic New England day of weather, constantly changing every five minutes or so. This was the first time I had ventured up to New Hampshire for an engagement session and after having shot a lot of engagement photos in and around Boston, this was a nice mix to be able to add to the blog. I hope to shoot lots more New England engagement sessions in different parts of the region next year and this shoot definitely got me itching for more.

ENGAGEMENT PHOTOGRAPHER NEW ENGLAND

NEW ENGLAND ENGAGEMENT PHOTOGRAPHY | BRITTANY & CHRIS

Having finished up shooting with the yellow Chevy in the hills,  we headed back to the house for a change of clothes and a different feel to the shoot. We still wanted to capture that classic New England feel and I think working the red barns into the shoot definitely did that.

NEW ENGLAND ENGAGEMENT SESSION

NEW ENGLAND ENGAGEMENT PHOTOGRAPHY | BRITTANY & CHRIS

Brittany had picked up some balloons from her mum’s shop earlier that day and this gave us the chance to have an injection of color into their engagement session as well. We had had a little drop of rain and that helped punch the colors in the surrounding New England countryside, but the balloons gave it that little something extra and were a fun addition to the engagement pictures.

BOSTON AND NEW ENGLAND ENGAGEMENT PHOTOGRAPHER

NEW ENGLAND ENGAGEMENT PHOTOGRAPHY | BRITTANY & CHRIS

If you thought we were done, think again. Don’t forget we still have planes to come! Brittany’s family live close to each other in this  part of New England. She has an aunt and uncle just down the road, and that was our next port of call. They live in a wonderfully picturesque part of New Hampshire with stone walls surrounding their property, a pond and old barns and with a little bit of color left in the trees, this was all I needed for the next part of their engagement shoot.

ENGAGEMENT SESSION NEW ENGLAND

NEW ENGLAND ENGAGEMENT PHOTOGRAPHY | BRITTANY & CHRIS

We weren’t quite finished with the cars yet either. Dana had another old Chevy sitting in the drive and I wanted to incorporate that into their engagement shots as well. It was parked in a spot where the light was really nice and it created a great foreground for a series of shots for Brittany and Chris. Just at the back of the house was a wood pile that caught our attention as well. The pile of chopped wood made for a really interesting backdrop for a couple of shots and we couldn’t go without at least grabbing a couple.

NEW HAMPSHIRE ENGAGEMENT PICTURES

NEW ENGLAND ENGAGEMENT PHOTOGRAPHY | BRITTANY & CHRIS

On our way back to Brittany and Chris’ house, we stopped by the nursery that Brittany’s family own and took the chance to add a few more shots in a place that had been in the family for a few generations. This was a great little spot to add some extra photos to their New England engagement shoot.

I promised you planes, and planes you shall have! Chris works for the Federal Aviation Administration in Nashua, NH and is a qualified pilot, so we were allowed access to the runway for a few photos. This was the plane that Chris has actually flown before so it was great to be able to incorporate it into some of the shots as well. It was a super fun way to finish off the shoot and it was a first for me again. It was really good fun being able to add these plane shots into their engagement session and I think you’ll agree that they both looked the part!

OAKS FARM WEDDING PHOTOS | JOE & CLAIRE 2012

This wedding was slightly different in a couple of aspects from the others I have shot this year. For one, it was back in the UK and second it was for some very close friends of mine, Joe and Claire, that I had grown up with in London. It was nice to be back in action as a London wedding photographer and even nicer that it was shooting for friends.

WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER LONDON

OAKS FARM WEDDING UK | JOE & CLAIRE

On the morning of the big day I started with Joe and his best man, one of our good friends (he was a witness at my wedding!) Darra. We got some photos of these guys getting ready and being back in England that obviously started with a wedding day cup of tea. It’s always nice to share a brew with your good friends, but even more so on a morning like this!

OAKS FARM WEDDING PHOTOS

OAKS FARM WEDDING UK | JOE & CLAIRE

The guys scrubbed up nicely and it wasn’t long before I was heading off to catch up with Claire, who was getting ready in Bromley. Before leaving, I took the chance to capture some details of the rings and some other special jewelry. What made the jewelry and the rings so special was that Joe’s twin sister, Anna, had made them all. I can attest to Anna’s wonderful work, she made our wedding rings and Erin’s (my wife’s) engagement ring. You may notice a theme of origami paper cranes running through this wedding (more to come in a bit) and Anna continued this in the jewelry, with wonderful silver folded cranes as necklaces and tie clips.

It was great fun catching up with the girls round at Claire’s parents house and needless to say there were more cups of tea to be drunk, before moving quickly onto the Champers! It was nice to be able to get some shots of Claire and her parents and family and also Joe’s mum and Anna, who was also a bridesmaid, as they were all getting ready and leaving from here. I took the chance to grab a few shots of Claire when she was completely ready and think you’ll agree she looked stunning in her dress!

Being England in the summer, it was obviously raining, but that was never going to dampen spirits today! Running out to the VW Camper Van that was going to be taking the bridesmaids and then Claire to Oaks Farm in Surrey where they were getting married, involved numerous umbrellas but no one got too wet! The awesome old VW  was the perfect choice for these guys and it was great fun riding with the girls over to the venue in it.

With everything in the one location we were set to go for the day here once Claire showed up. It was nice being a part of a day that was shared by so many friends and family that I knew. Our close friends did the readings during the ceremony and Claire’s two nieces did a great job with their reading as well.

WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY LONDON

OAKS FARM WEDDING UK | JOE & CLAIRE

They had been engaged over a year and during that time had spent most of their spare time folding origami paper cranes. See if you can spot a few throughout the day, they pop up here and there. There were over a thousand altogether and on several occasions in the run up to the big day, Joe and Claire had people over for folding parties round at their house.

OAKS FARM SURREY UK WEDDING

OAKS FARM WEDDING UK | JOE & CLAIRE

The sun finally came out for us and gave me the chance to take Joe and Claire out into the grounds around Oaks Farm to capture some portraits of just the two of them together. When I’m photographing weddings in Boston and New England I always like to take the bride and groom outside for some shots of the two of them together and I wanted to make sure that I could get some for Joe and Claire as well. There are some wonderful spots surrounding the main building at Oaks Farm so we didn’t have to venture to far to find some great photo ops.

NEW ENGLAND WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY – LORRIE AND JOHN’S MEDFIELD MA WEDDING DAY

John and Lorrie were married earlier this year in Medfield, MA with a wonderful church ceremony and backyard celebrations in Lorrie’s parents’ home that made for a truly special day for them and all their friends and family. Having a backyard reception was a great way to create a wonderfully customized atmosphere, in a setting that was very close to Lorrie’s heart, and I was grateful that they allowed me to capture their New England wedding day photos.

I started off with John and the rest of the guys at John’s brother’s house just a short distance away from Lorrie’s parents’ house. Both Lorrie and John were from the Medfield area, and with lots of friends and family based nearby, it was nice to have the wedding local to them. Shooting with John first, we got some photos of him getting ready and spending the morning with his brothers and other groomsmen, before getting some more formal and fun shots of them all together once they were ready for the day. It also gave me the chance to capture John opening the moving card and gift that Lorrie had sent over that morning.

I had a good bit of time with John and the guys before heading over to Lorrie, so it was nice to be able to set up a few different looks and shots with them. It’s always nice when you get around to designing an album if you have nice variety in the shots, and I always recommend leaving a  little more time than you think for these photos as you’ll be glad after the day.

After shooting John, it was time to head round to Lorrie’s parents’ house which was just down the road from the guys.  Lorrie and the girls were nearly ready to go, with Lorrie ready to get into her dress. Not all of the bridesmaids had seen the dress yet, so it was a nice to capture them seeing it for the first time. Once Lorrie was in her dress, we were able to capture some shots that would compliment the shots we had captured with the guys and that would go well together in an keepsake album of their day. It’s always my aim when shooting to try and keep a similar feel to all the shots, so that you have a consistent feel to the whole day when you go back and look through it again and again, years down the line.

John and Lorrie were married in their local church, again not far from their home, and I had visited it earlier in the year with them when we were going through all the details for the day. It’s always nice to see a venue beforehand and although I don’t need to see a place before shooting there, it is nice to get some ideas by visiting before the big day. Each New England wedding day has something unique about it, and meeting with the couple before the big day means that I can make sure I know exactly what to look out for.

The church was beautiful and had lots of great angles to work with. As it was a full mass, it gave me lots of time to explore these potential different shots, again allowing for lots of variety when it comes round to album shots. The church was decorated in a similar style to the reception back at Lorrie’s parents house and I loved the mason jars and flower choices.

John and Lorrie’s wedding ceremony was full of friends, family and their children. One of Lorrie’s younger relatives even played guitar and sung for them, which was a particularly moving moment for them both as well as the young girl’s parents. It was clear that family and friends were very important to both Lorrie and John, and there were lots of warm welcomes for the newly married couple during the receiving line after the mass.

I always like to shoot the portrait shots of the couple in a few different locations if possible, and after all of the family had headed back to the house for the reception, we took the time to get a few shots of Lorrie and John together at the church before following behind them. Once we were back at the house we made the most of the wonderful back garden space to capture all of the group photos.

This was my first time shooting a New England backyard wedding, and I have to say that it was really great fun! It was a very nice and relaxed atmosphere, and the celebrations got into full swing as soon as we got back there. I particularly liked the canoe full of iced beers! Who wouldn’t like that?

As I said before I always like to try and shoot couples at a few different locations and times during the day. Taking shots at different points during the day means that I don’t keep you away from friends and family for too long, and it means that you have a wider range of images at the end. Although if you want to give me an hour or more to shoot just the two of you, then I’m definitely not going to say no! :)

Once the dancing got started, it carried on through the night and well after I had packed up my gear and left. It was really great to have been part of such a wonderful day in John and Lorrie’s lives and I’m looking forward to catching up with them very soon to look through all the photos for their wedding album.

I couldn’t help but sneak in one final shot before leaving though. The twinkle lights that were strung up around the garden created a wonderful light in the background and placing Lorrie and John in the foreground we were able to capture this wonderful final shot from their wonderful wedding day.

LYMAN ESTATE WEDDING PHOTOS – MASSACHUSETTS

Rebecca and Justin celebrated their New England wedding day at Lyman Estate in Waltham earlier this year on a wonderful summer’s day. Lyman Estate in MA provides a beautiful backdrop to any wedding day, with wonderful grounds surrounding the historic house that dates back to 1793. These are some of their Lyman Estate wedding photos and their story.

I was shooting alongside Nicole Chan, owner and lead photographer of Nicole Chan photography who had hired me to second shoot for her for the day. I started off with Justin and the groomsmen, as is often the case for the second photographer on the day. I photographed all the guys together while they were getting ready, and this time is always nice to build a rapport with them all. Justin and the groomsmen got ready at the Westin Hotel in Waltham, as were Rebecca and her bridesmaids. They were to have their “first look” at the Westin before heading over to the Lyman Estate for wedding photos there, before the ceremony.

The “first look” took place in the foyer of the Westin hotel and it was a great moment for the bride and groom, as well as the bridal party, who were able to watch from a distance and share this special moment with them.

Heading to Lyman Estate for wedding pictures before the ceremony meant that there was more time for Rebecca and Justin to spend time with friends and family for the day. The ceremony was at the First Parish Church in Waltham and this choice of location complemented the wonderful grandeur of Lyman Estate.  It was my first time photographing a wedding at this church as well, and that is always fun to photograph a MA wedding at a new venue.

The ceremony was very moving and their friends and family packed the church out to share this very special time with them. The First Parish Church is your quintessential New England wedding location and the photos here came out great.

Heading to Lyman Estate again after the ceremony, it was a pleasure to shoot alongside Nicole and her team of videographers.  The day was very relaxed and while we shot with the bride and groom again, we had already photographed a lot of the formal groups and were able to explore the grounds around the house and capture more wedding day photos with Lyman Estate in the background.

The wedding day meal was held outside under the tent with views out onto the grounds. With complete run of the property, they were able to move in and out of the house and enjoy everything that Lyman Estate has to offer. Wedding photo opportunities at Lyman Estate both inside and out of the house are to be had at every turn and I’m looking forward to hopefully shooting here again.
