On Saturday, I had the pleasure of spending the day with Jared and Jessalyn to capture images of their intimate wedding in Woodstock, Vermont. Their ceremony was held at Our Lady of the Snows church in Woodstock, followed by a modest reception at The Parker House in Quechee, Vermont. Although a bit cold, it was actually a nice day for this time of year in Vermont and a few bushes still had some color. Jared and Jessalyn were great dealing with the cool temperatures while we were capturing some beautiful images of the two of them. The reception was highlighted by the band Americana’s Most Wanted. Friends and family had a great time singing along with the group.
Jared and Jessalyn Portraits:
We had a great day guys…I enjoyed sharing it with you. Enjoy and good luck to you both!
Once again I had the privilege of shooting an engagement session of someone I love…my older daughter. Her sister Lindsay was married in May and I shot her engagement last fall. Now it’s Heather’s turn. She and Ian live near Portsmouth, and I love the architecture there for engagement shoots, so we decided to start there. But it didn’t end there…Heather and Ian wanted some pictures where he first proposed, at Indian Hill Christmas Tree Farm, last year when we were cutting our tree. It was a beautiful day with lots of sunshine but some wind too (can you say hair issues?) and there was still some color left. At the tree farm, it was time to tag a tree for this year, so Heather and Ian picked out a nice one for their home. What a great day it was, made even more special because it was my little girl!
You guys are great together. Can’t wait for the wedding in October next year.
I love you!
On Saturday, October 19 I had the pleasure of sharing the day with Joe and Caitlin, capturing images of their wedding at the Omni Mt. Washington Hotel in Bretton Woods, New Hampshire. I love this hotel and I’m honored to be on their preferred vendor list. Joe and Caitlin are a great couple who’ve been together about 6-years and their love for each other was clear during many moments throughout the day. To make the day more special were 150 or so of their close friends and family who had come from all over to share in the festivities of the day. A beautiful wedding, held at a beautiful hotel with Mt. Washington as your backdrop…WOW…these guys did it right!
Joe and Caitlin:
What a great day guys…I thoroughly enjoyed it. CONGRATULATIONS!!
I love fall in New England. I’ve never been disappointed (in the 12-years I’ve lived here) with a trip through mid-New Hampshire and Vermont. When caught at the right time, the town of Woodstock is fantastic…with the architecture, the color….wow! So when Jared and Jessalyn told me they wanted to take their engagement pictures in Woodstock, I was psyched…especially when I realize this weekend was about peak color! So we met on Saturday, amongst all the (other) leaf peepers, we found some secluded areas where we could get some great images that capture the color and architecture, but more importantly the love between Jared and Jessalyn, who were engaged in the area and will be married here in November.
I had a great time guys…thanks for providing a great excuse to take a trip to Woodstock at this beautiful time of year!
Last week I had the pleasure to spend some time with Caitlin and Joe. They’re planning their wedding for October in New Hampshire, so we spent some time capturing them at a few spots in Boston as a bit of a contrast. They live in the city and like Boston Common, so that’s where we started. We then worked our way through Beacon Hill to the Charles River Esplanade. Caitlin and Joe are a great couple, obviously very in love and I’m looking forward to their wedding in October!
What a great day it was! Can’t wait for the wedding at the beautiful Mt. Washington Hotel…one of my favorite venues!
Just a note that while I haven’t been posting anything lately, it doesn’t mean I’m not working. Quite the contrary, I’m busier than I’ve been…ever! I contracted with a studio this year so I’ve been shooting weddings under contract, which means I don’t process or post the images I shoot…I shoot then submit and they take care of everything else. I’ve already had 7 Weddings with another 12 to go through October. Mixed in have been a number of engagement shoots as well.
Stay tuned…I’ve captured some great images this year and I plan on posting a FAVORITES group of images in the coming weeks…I just need to find the time. Here’s a small sampling:
Thanks for your continued interest…and note that I’m booking dates for 2014 already so contact me if you’re interested in seeing more of my work from this year.
On Saturday, I spent a couple hours with Matthew and Jacob, two twin brothers who are Seniors in the Class of 2013 at Sanborn Regional High School. While they were a couple of serious guys, I did get a “hint” of an occasional smile from these guys. We had a great time and enjoyed some nice scenery in the park…sort of the calm before the Sandy “Franken-Storm” !
On Friday, I spent the afternoon with Josh and Marissa, photographing their wedding and reception at Atkinson Country Club. What a beautiful day sunny and a beautiful venue for their fall wedding. They chose fall colors to compliment the season, and the low sun added to the warm colors of the afternoon. The weather was a bit brisk but all survived the wedding then headed indoors for the reception. Marissa used some of her engagement pictures we took to make centerpieces for the table, but she hated to admit she got the idea from…um…Martha Stewart!
Meanwhile, the guys were already dressed and ready to show off their unique addition to the traditional wedding attire…CONS!
JOSH and MARISSA:
What a great evening! I enjoyed sharing your wedding with you guys and capturing some wonderful images for you.
- Venue: Atkinson Country Club
- Officiant: John (Friend of Josh’s Family)
- Cake: Who You Callin’ Cupcake?
- Flowers: Freshwater Farms
Thanks to Lauren for her assistance.
Today, I spent time with Sam and Lindsay, shooting some images to celebrate their engagement. They are a great couple and they are so compatible. This was especially special for me because…well…Lindsay is my daughter. I’m so happy for her and I like Sam, who’s been a great influence and companion for her. So we spent some time in the woods around the house getting some wonderful shots. Of course, we had to mix in a shot or two with one of Sam’s “toys”!
Congratulations to you both. I have to say this was my most favorite engagement session…call that a biased opinion…but I really enjoyed capturing some great images of the two of you.
On Friday, I spent a few hours with Corie, Nichole and their family at an ocean-front home in Mattapoisett, Massachusetts. They had planned on a small ceremony with family and the ocean as the backdrop. Unfortunately, mother nature chose not to cooperate and the day was windy and rainy. At the last minute, when it was apparent that the outside wedding wasn’t going to happen, they improvised and held the ceremony on the back enclosed patio of the home. Nichole had spent time decorating carnival-style masks that were planned to add a different wrinkle to the standard wedding theme. In the end, the ceremony went off without a hitch, even in close quarters and we ended up with a few minutes without rain so we could capture a few images of Corie and Nichole by the ocean.
One of my smallest but most interesting weddings…what a fun time…thanks guys!
