State Room Wedding – Boston

It was a great pleasure to photograph Lindsay and Joe’s State Room wedding as a 2nd with the fabulous Denny Kwan. We hopped across Boston from The Ames Hotel, to Boston Common, to the Greek Orthodox Cathedral of Boston, and finally to the spectacular Great Room at the State Room Boston. Wait for the views. They will knock your socks off. I started with Joe at the Ames. He and his groomsmen were infectious with their laughter. We made a pit stop at the bar on our way to meet Lindsay, who was back at the Ames Hotel waiting with her bridesmaids.  The two had a joyous first look in the brick plaza across from The Old State House. Then we headed to the Commons for formals. I had never been to the Greek Orthodox Cathedral. There is so much beauty inside that building from mosaics, to paintings, to stained glass. As I photographed the two during the ceremony, I watched their faces cycle from awe to, humor, to joy, and back again. Eventually we ended up at the State Room, where we had the pleasure of watching as the sun set, the lights of the harbor sparkled on, Wilson Stevens’ Beantown Band played, and Joe and Lindsay danced into the night.

Marthas Vineyard Wedding – Aquinnah

Marthas Vineyard Wedding – Xaviera & Dejahn

2nd for Yuri Vaysgant

This was my first venture out to Martha’s  Vineyard, and let’s just say I was impressed. What a place to get married! The details were on point at this wedding all the way through. Most of the day was overcast, but there were a few key moments when that glorious cape light pierced through the clouds. The joy was everywhere on the guests’ faces. It takes work to get a kid into formalwear, but they sure are cute, in suspenders or tulle or what have you. I think my favorite image from the day might be the one from up in the Aquinnah lighthouse during the ceremony. I stitched five verticals together, and removed an unsightly fence. I don’t always spend all that time in post, but the final result was worth it in this case. I love a sailcloth tent, and Martha’s Vineyard is the perfect spot for that elegant solution to a wedding reception. The dance party was clearly lively late into the night, and there was a sparkler send off to cap off the night. Incredible through and through.

ICA Boston Engagement

ICA Boston Engagement-Emily & Steve

Emily and Steve wanted good photos to use for their save the dates, but they did not want standard romantic engagement photos. So we talked for a bit about possible locations around Boston and Cambridge that would fit their personalities and their vision. Steve suggested the ICA Boston because they both love the building. I jumped at the chance to make non-standard engagement photos. It was challenging to make photographs with all the lines of the ICA’s architecture, but it was a challenge that I enjoyed! We spent the entire session on the grounds looking for interesting angles and nooks. There was more than enough variety in the scenery to find dynamic photos. The wind was blowing, and it was a bit cold. I think all of that added to excitement. We were all happy with the results.

Beacon Hill Maternity Photos – Boston

Beacon Hill Maternity Photos – Boston

I met up with Cyril and Constance on a perfectly sunny November day. Because they were only in Boston for a postdoc, they liked the idea of taking home some memories back to France with a typically Boston backdrop. The neighborhood of Beacon Hill was perfect for their maternity photos. We hiked up from Charles Street into some of the charming back streets. Our exploration was shaped by our light-chasing.
