Ben and Ruthie

Ben and Ruthie are such a fun couple - ready for anything in front of the camera!! Their wedding day also began with heavy downpours, but we were able to get outside for a few minutes during one of the breaks in the rain. One of the things I love about Ruthie is that she IS NOT shy in front of the camera! As a dancer, she is very aware of how to interact with the camera and left no room for boring pictures! She and Ben had the perfect spirit to enable me to take really unique shots at their wedding

Steve and Linda

This past weekend was so crazy... TWO weddings, TOO much rain, and not TOO much time for anything else. Steve and Linda's wedding got off to a less than ideal start. Poor Linda was so disappointed by all of the rain, that she was in no mood to begin getting ready and head off to the alter. However, an awesome makeup artist and a team of bridesmaids brightened up her afternoon and her mood. Linda made an incredibly beautiful/classic bride. It was amazing to see just how much more she came alive when she was beside her husband. As soon as she was able to be by his side, Linda immediately was more relaxed, at peace, and just plain happy! What a testament of their love.

Hope you two are enjoying Bermuda!!!

One of my favorite things about the wedding business is that your couples become your clients for life!! Amy and Ryan were married two years ago (I was shooting all film then - YUCK!- so I don't have pictures of them to put up!) and one month ago had the most beautiful baby boy - JOSH!!!

I met Josh last night and had so much fun hanging out with him!! Apparently 7:30 - 10:30 is his only fussy time during the day - the time that I was there! However, we discovered that baby Josh is a fan of the light emitted from my flash... huh.
Ryan and Amy were joking about the need for a strobe in his nursery!! Anyway, this boy is amazing. At one month, he has bigger hands and feet than any other baby I have ever met! I guess he will be a true replica of both parents - tall, lean, athletic - basically perfect!! Thanks for having me over guys! You are so blessed!

The boys (and girl) of summer

Summertime is such a fun time to take pictures of kids, and here in New England this week there is no better place to be than at the beach! Yesterday I met the Punch family at Singing Beach to take some pictures of their kids. It was so fun to hang out and watch the kids come alive! They ran around, explored the ocean - finding a visitor - a turtle!, climbed through huge rocks, and had a huge sand fight! Below are a few of my favorites from the day.

One of the only drawbacks of my job is that I work every weekend, which means I miss out on so many family events. Father's day, for instance has always been one of my all time favorite days of the year. This is such a special day to me because it always makes me reflect on how uniquely awesome my dad is and how much I adore him. I was in California shooting a wedding this weekend, so yesterday was the first father's day I spent away from my dad.

People say there is a special kind of bond that exists between a father and his daughter. I could not agree more. Since as far back as I can remember, my father has been my dearest friend. He is not the type of guy who is ever overbearing or controlling - he is the type that commands respect just by being who he is. His sacrificial, unconditional love for me and faith in who I would become has allowed me to grow into the woman I am today.

Here's to the man who taught me how to love, how to be loved, and how to "get over" any bump in the road with a simple trip to the mall ;)

You are truly an amazing man, dad - my hero!!!

Happy Father's Day!!!!!!!

Tessa and Rahul

I had so much fun this past Sunday being the second shooter for an AMAZING wedding. I was shooting with my good friend, Erin ( at the Crane Estate in Ipswich, MA. It's always great to be the second shooter because I don't have the pressure of making sure I capture EVERYTHING! It's much more laid back and I see things that would have otherwise been overlooked. Here are a few of my favorite shots from the day. Thanks, Erin for letting me spend the day with you!

The Wells girls

One of the best parts of my job is taking pictures of children! They are so spontaneous and energetic - both characteristics of awesome pictures! I spent the afternoon with the Wells family and took so many fun pictures of them just in their backyard! It was really fun to capture these girls in their own, familiar environment and be able to preserve their lazy days of summer on film.

People always ask me, after all the weddings I have been to, do I ever get ideas for my own. Well, this weekend I did! I went to Chicago to shoot Howie and Brianna's wedding, and it was one of my all time favorite weddings! Everything was perfect - right down to the crisp blue sky! Brianna was a photographer's dream bride - soooo laid back and incredibly easy to photograph. Their wedding was such a representation of true love in the purest sense. Their love for God and each other was so evident throughout each part of the day, and it shows in their pictures!

Tim and Molly

A couple of weeks ago I was able to shoot another amazing couple! Not only are Tim and Molly BOTH beautiful, they interact in a way that is so fun and easy to capture. I have been so blessed with the couples that I have been able to work with, and these two just reinforce the fact that true love is REALLY a beautiful thing.
