Tag Archives: WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY HOTEL NINE ZERO BOSTON MA
Hi! It’s Wife here… I’m stepping outside of my usual role as gear-sherpa and best-man-finder to help out Roberto with some blogging while he is shooting his way through a sweltering wedding season.
Over the past 2 years, I’ve tagged along all over New England as Roberto photographed weddings, engagements, and even the occasional proposal. We’ve been lucky enough to photograph in some spectacular locations and venues, in beautiful churches, breathtaking outdoor sites, and gorgeous hotels and restaurants. For the first in a series of posts, we thought that we’d go through some of our favorite venues wedding ceremonies and receptions, starting in Boston:
1. The Beehive – Boston | www.beehiveboston.com/ | What an awesome venue… definitely not your traditional place to hold a wedding reception, but if you and your partner want a more chilled out vibe, then it’s definitely worth a look. The Beehive has a few different areas, giving your guests the option of sitting at the quieter upstairs bar, hitting the dance floor downstairs, grabbing a drink at the downstairs bar, or taking a break for some fresh air on the outdoor patio. The décor is very unique, lots of exposed brick and heavy draperies, so you wouldn’t need lots of your own decorations. The food was great, and even though we didn’t partake since we were on the clock, the cocktails looked pretty amazing as well. Check out Holly and Matt’s recent wedding reception held at The Beehive, photographed by RFP.
2. Nine Zero Hotel – Boston | www.ninezero.com/ | The Nine Zero isn’t your traditional hotel. The space is really nicely laid out and the décor is amazing, offering some great opportunities for unique wedding photos. Amazing views paired with a great location mean that you can easily work some of the Boston skyline into your photos, and if you’re doing a First Look session, you’ve got the option of running across the street and into Boston Common or next door to their . At night, you can also run next door for a quick shot underneath Boston’s iconic Beantown Pub sign. The three versatile, adjacent event rooms mean that you can keep your guests moving for different parts of your wedding celebration (cocktails, ceremony, seated dinner, dancing, etc) and the amazingly helpful event planning staff keeps everything running smoothly, leaving you to get on with the partying. Check out Emily and Carlos’ recent wedding held at the Nine Zero.
3. Liberty Hotel – Boston | www.libertyhotel.com | Talk about your stunning venue! The Liberty Hotel, formerly the Charles Street Jail, was completed in 1851, and during its time as a prison, it housed a number of notable inmates, like Malcolm X, World War II German POWs, and a number of Boston suffragettes. The prison closed in the 1990’s, and reopened in 2007 as a stunning luxury hotel. Maintaining some of the architectural features of the original jail, the Liberty Hotel’s impressive rotunda still contains original brick and iron work (including lots of barred cell doors) and massive windows looking out towards the Charles River. The multiple bars and restaurants (The Clink, Alibi, Scampo, Liberty Bar, The Yard and Catwalk) and numerous event rooms give you tons of flexibility for your wedding, and the pairing of the centuries-old architecture with more modern fittings and décor make for some amazing photos of your big day. Check out Katie and Ryan’s Boston wedding to see more of the amazing architecture at the Liberty!
Definitely more on this topic to come, but if you’re looking for a wedding, engagement or event photographer for any of these venues, look no further. Contact Roberto at Roberto Farren Photography for more info!

Happy New Year! I’d like to start this year off by looking back at some of the great weddings I was privileged to have photographed here in Boston and further afield last year.
I photographed weddings all through New England, from wedding photos in Boston in the heart of the city, to farms in New Hampshire and coastal weddings down in Rhode Island. 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.
Some of the New England weddings I photographed last year are yet to have a complete blog post but this will give you a little sneak peek into some of those.
These are just a small sample of some of my favorite wedding images from 2012 and I’ll be posting a few more in part 2 (and maybe 3) very soon.
Thank you so much again to all those couples that I had the chance to work with in 2012 and for those that I have already given me the green light to capture in 2013. I really looking forward to another great here photographing weddings in New England, from The Cape up into Maine.
If you would like to get in touch about discussing coverage options for your wedding in 2013 then please don’t hesitate to get in touch. I only have so many weekends in the year as I photograph every New England wedding that I book and the weekends fill up quick. Drop me a message from the contact page and we can get going to plan out the perfect coverage for you and your big day.
All the best for 2013, I hope that you are all looking forward to it as much as me.
I had been looking forward to shooting Emily and Carlos’ wedding day for sometime. Actually it was since I met them for the first time to discuss the photography for their big day. The hotel Nine Zero in Boston is a wonderful venue and offers a stunning array of places to shoot portraits. This was one of the reasons, but the main reason was because Emily and Carlos were such great people and I had been really looking forward to seeing them for their Boston wedding day, especially after we had shot their Beacon Hill engagement session a month or so earlier.
They had the perfect day planned out. A nice early afternoon start meant that they were able to relax into their day and spend a bit of time with their immediate families before the ceremony and getting ready.
I started the day shooting with Emily and her family to capture some stunning getting ready shots of her and also to shot some of them all together before she headed downstairs to her and Carlos ceremony. I think that you’ll all agree Emily looked absolutely gorgeous in her dress and that we got some wonderful shots of her and her parents and brother.
Carlos was already waiting downstairs when I met with him on the day and was looking perfectly dapper with his smart tux and wonderful orchid boutonnière. We had the chance to capture some great portraits of him and his brother Cesar, before they went to the front of the ceremony room to wait for Emily. The Nine Zero hotel offers a really great place to get married in Boston. Apart from its perfect location close to the heart of the city, it has a great space for getting people together to celebrate. On top of that all the staff there were great to work with and very accommodating.
Their ceremony was great and Emily and Carlos were both very emotional which had everyone else going as well. Carol Merletti did a wonderful job of officiating the wedding and was a real pleasure to work with as well and I hope to shoot more weddings where she is officiating in the near future.
The party was great and it was a wonderful atmosphere. I did borrow Emily and Carlos a couple of times from the dancing and celebrations to grab a few more shots of them before the end of the night. There was one shot in particular that we had had in mind and that was to work in the “Beantown Pub” sign, just next door to Nine Zero into a wedding photo or two. You can’t get much more of a Boston wedding photograph than under a Beantown sign.
