Topsfield Engagement Session - Elizabeth and David

Topsfield Engagement Session - Elizabeth and David

Photographing an engagement session in New England mid-January can mean dealing with frosty temperatures. Fortunately Elizabeth and David are avid gym-goers and had the idea to use their local Crossfit in Topsfield, MA for the shoot. Without anybody else around we were able to implement some cool ideas they had come up with. Shortly after our arrival the two lovebirds were hanging up in the air. To symbolize their wedding at Gloucester's fabulous Bass Rocks Golf Club was soon to come, they literally tied a knot with the ropes. They also pulled off a 'Spiderman kiss', another great idea I loved.

After creating more fun shots to celebrate their engagement, me moved on to the rustic Gould Barn, located in Topsfield as well. The sun was out and it was surprisingly mild, and we all enjoyed the warm afternoon together. Elizabeth and David continued to show their affection for each other while bathing in the sunlight. Eventually we captured even their sweet dog Kona in a number of photos.

Boston Athenaeum Engagement Session

Boston Athenaeum Engagement Session

It was a very cold day but that was not why I was happy to be in the warm Athenaeum in Boston. I was thrilled to be there photographing Samantha and Brian’s engagement session, who dressed to the nines beautifully complimented the rich interior of the Athenaeum. As a librarian on Cape Ann, the location was perfectly chosen by Samantha to capture them and their love. The glamorous location felt like a teaser for their upcoming wedding this year at the elegant Castle Hill in Ipswich. A special thanks to Deborah at the Athenaeum for showing us all the best corners.

Who needs LA if you can live in Gloucester

Who needs LA if you can live in Gloucester

Ashley and Jeff are likely among the most awesome people in Gloucester, MA. While Jeff is a local, Ashley had to live in Miami, move to and work in LA before she realized Cape Ann is where she belongs. Who could blame her?! Jeff has been a long term member of the Bass Rocks Golf Club, so it was only fitting to use this great venue with its fantastic location as the place where they would tie the knot. Fun was in the air from the very beginning of the day. And after documenting their engagement last Fall at Good Harbor Beach (check out their engagement images here), I knew their wedding was going to be a wicked blast. And they didn't disappoint. These two love birds and their many guests had positivity radiating from them the whole day long. And I don't recall many wedding shoots where I found so many people giving 110% on the dance floor for hours on end. I wish you all the best throughout your marriage. You guys kick ass! Here's the video slideshow of their highlights.

Shining Souls Within

The weather was starting to get warmer, and Rachel and Mark and myself decided it was finally time to visit the beautiful Castle Hill on Crane Estate in Essex, MA to document their engagement with some special portraits of the two of them. In the early morning of a Monday we had the place just for ourselves. I personally love Castle Hill anyway, but I feel it was such a good location for Rachel and Mark. I had come to know that they are far more interested in the humanities and how life works, than in spending lots of time online or social media. Crane Estate, with its vastness and old building construction, wonderfully reflects and accommodates this. And as our engagement session went on, they were able to express their love for each other more and more in front of the camera while they were discovering the beauty and new renovations of this classic venue. Additionally, Rachel had expressed her concern for not being photogenic during our first consulation meeting for their wedding, but I have to say I cannot confirm this whatsoever! Find out for yourself in the images below. Click here to see the video slideshow of their highlights. Enjoy!
