Danielle and Tony
October 16, 2015

 

Danielle and Tony had a gorgeous, autumn day for their wedding.  We met Danielle at her aunt’s beach house in Groton Long Point.  The ladies were there getting ready, and we were able to use the beach for some photos.  After we headed over to the country club to meet up with Tony and the guys.  Danielle and Tony kept the day traditional and waited until their ceremony to see each other.  They both looked awesome.  Neither of them could hide their emotions the first moment their eyes locked with each other.  No matter when it is during the day, I always love the moment a bride and groom see each other for the first time.  Danielle and Tony’s moment was a particularly candid and sweet one.

Ellen & Dominic
October 11, 2015

Jake and I had a great week with Ellen and Dominic.  First we met them for a beautiful afternoon stroll in Boston on Tuesday, and then we were photographing their wedding on an equally gorgeous day that Sunday.  Fall was just making its debut in our area.  The day was sunny, warm, and perfect for a wedding.  Dominic and Ellen opted for a first look, so Jake and I took them to a trail near the hotel for their first meeting and some photos of just the two of them.  Then we headed back to the hotel for family photos and bridal party photos.  The area behind the hotel is a great location for outdoors photos as well as an outdoor ceremony.

Mike, Michelle, Olivia, and Tyler
Wickham Park, Manchester, CT

We had such a great time getting together with Mike and Michelle and their kids.  We were a part of their wedding a couple years ago, so we were quite excited to meet the whole family.  Olivia and Tyler are adorable.  Olivia was made for the camera.  She walked around the park following all the directions and smiling beautifully for the camera.  We found it only fair to reward her with a little time on the playground at the end of the session.  Tyler did great as well.  It isn’t easy at the age of one to stay focused and still for the camera.  These two kids are just adorable.  We can’t wait for the next session!

Family Fun At Home

Revisiting families is always the best part of this job.  We love seeing the kids grow and getting the opportunity to document their stages along the way.  We were back at the family house last week to commemorate the start of the school year for Madeline and Ben.  The whole family joined for the occasion.  The grandmas were there for a visit and the family dog made his first camera debut.  Believe or not this large and gorgeous dog is still just a baby.  Jake had fun playing the trampoline, and I had a great time running through the yard.  For us it is always part photography and part play session.  It is a good thing we are still just big kids.

Anniversary Shoot

 

This happy couple just celebrated their one year anniversary.  We were excited to see them and hear about life a year after the wedding.  These two have blended their families and have five children between them.  So there is never a dull or idle moment in life.  They wanted to take some time to do something that was 100% just about the two of them.  They decided to get back into their wedding attire and take some more beautiful photos of just the two of them without any distractions.  We had a great time revisiting this gorgeous, happy couple.  Happy one year anniversary, we wish you many more happy anniversaries to come!
