It was a perfect Fall day for a photo session at the Hopkinton State Park where I had the pleasure of meeting up with Marie McCormick a senior at Medway High School.  During our session we talked about why having a professional photo session to commemorate Marie's senior year is important to her and her family.  Marie has a strong interest in studying political science and hopes to attend the University of Massachusetts.  Have an awesome senior year Marie!!!

New England summer weather is here.  Perfect time of year for a beautiful session at the Mazarenko Farm and Conservation.  I can’t tell you how much I love this time of year for an outdoor engagement session. There’s no landscape or light quite like this. This beautiful engagement session with Tayla and Nick was captured in just the right light.   I'll be sharing more images this week.

Bianca and Ryan couldn't have chosen a better location for their beautiful maritime wedding! They were married at the historic New Bedford Seamen's Bethel and had their reception across the street at the New Bedford Whaling Museum.  
 
Bianca was born in New Bedford, MA so naturally the couple wanted to share the vitality of the city with their guests by celebrating their nuptials at the Seamen's Bethel. The bride and groom also felt it was important to honor the bride's Azorean ancestors by hosting their wedding at the historical New Bedford Whaling Museum's Azorean Whaleman Gallery. "The Whaling Museum and the Azores Maritime Heritage Society have done an amazing job highlighting the Azorean impact in the area and demonstrates the development of a vibrant Azorean community in New Bedford, MA. Making it the perfect place for our wedding celebration" - Bianca Leeds
 
The Azorean Whaleman Gallery is a gift of the Government of Portugal honoring the Portuguese people and their significant contribution to the maritime heritage of New Bedford.  The Azorean Maritime Heritage Society, founded in New Bedford in 1997, works in partnership with the New Bedford Whaling Museum to preserve the contributions of Azoreans to American whaling in the Whaling Museum’s Azorean Whaleman Gallery.
 
The Bride's family is from the Azores Island of St. Miguel, Portugal, where they were part of the fishing community in Vila Franca do Campo. The Bride’s family migrated to New Bedford in 1966 where they worked in the sea scollop industry.  Today New Bedford’s centuries-old fishing industry has survived, and is thriving. New Bedford remains one of the nation’s most prominent port cities, true to its proud maritime heritage. With the fishing experience and culture of hard work of the Portuguese immigrants and their descendants, New Bedford stands today as the nation’s number one commercial fishing port. 

It was wonderful witnessing these two marry! Here are a few images from their wedding day, enjoy!

JUNE 11, 2017 RHODE ISLAND SEASIDE, SUMMER, WEDDINGS

Katie and Sam were recently married in Newport RI at the historical Fort Adams.  Although the weather that day started out rainy, pushing the ceremony into the casemates of the old fort, it made everything seem that much more magical.

Aside from the weather, this wedding’s magic was also helped along by several talented vendors, including floral designer Semia, Boston makeup artist Lyndsay Simson, hair stylist Nicole Valenzuela, caterer Smoke and Pickles and dessert Flour Bakery.

JUNE 11, 2017 RHODE ISLAND SEASIDE, SUMMER, WEDDINGS

Katie and Sam’s Fort Adams wedding recently took place in Newport, Rhode Island.  After having a breathtaking first look, which took place within the open aired crumbling buildings of this historical fort, the couple took a quiet moment together before the ceremony.  Many people worry a first look may fade the emotional impact of their wedding day unveiling, but after seeing their magical moment you might think differently.

I’ve really enjoyed seeing this lovely image showcased on the Thompson Island Outward Bound Education Center website of Jesse and Cat Winters’ wedding!  It is truly my favorite place to photograph a wedding.  Boston Harbor island’s are wild and full of the most magical places to photograph.

Awesome session with Brooke, Ryan, and Reese! We had a perfect day at the beach with an amazing powder blue sky. Little Reese was a rascal. All she wanted to do was dive into the water. It was great fun!
