alicyn & doug are getting married in october in salisbury – so when deciding on the location for their e-session, the beach the place to go. these two are best friends & love being together and it shows every moment you are with them. I adored the dress that alicyn wore and that she didn’t hesitate one bit about doing what I asked – sand? what sand? and I was even more excited that she had opted not to straighten her hair for the session – curly hair at the beach is one of my favorite things!

I met up with ellie & matt at pemberton park on an amazingly beautiful afternoon. matt had to come straight from work so he did a quick change in the car which I thought was kinda cute. these two were just so much fun to work with. we wandered the park for 2+ hours and the light could not have been much better. they were willing to do anything I asked, even play with some balloons! I can’t wait for their wedding and to work with them again

jen & kevin had an absolutely beautiful august day to celebrate their wedding! the ceremony and wedding both took place at the silver swan bayside which is one of my new favorite venues – they even have a little bridal boat where jen got ready! when I first sat down with jen and kevin, they said that their wedding was going to be intimate and elegant – both of which were apparent and very successful. it was just family and close friends, many traveling internationally for the big day. I loved every minute with jen, kevin & their guests – they were such a fun group!

this is session 2 for our worcester prep senior rep anna. to see her first session at assateague, click here.  for the second part of our session we went to holly ridge which is a beautiful farm outside of powellville where anna rides horses. we had a gorgeous afternoon and were joined by anna’s mom and sister. the horse, sterling, was a rock star! very mellow and quite photogenic :) he listened to everything anna said and she was so good with him. I love the creamy light and really loved working again with anna – she’s so fun!

most of my brides make their initial inquiry via email and in these emails I usually receive the basic information for the weddings. when I got email number one from lindsey, my reaction was a little like this…. wedding date: october 2010 “yay! I love fall weddings” wedding location: the easton club “LOVE it and haven’t shot there for a long time” phone number: 315.xxx.xxxx “huh, wait, what – really???” not that I expect many of you to understand the significance of this – but area code 315 is a syracuse area code and was my area code for 15 years. I excitingly emailed her back – yes I was available – I loved the easton club – oh yeah, by the way… are you from syracuse? and she was and I was thrilled! during our correspondence this past winter we chuckled as everyone else panicked with record snowfall and began to plan her photography. she and tom wanted to do their e-session at trappe pond park and I had never been then – but I WILL be doing back! it’s gorgeous and has a lot of different places to shoot – wooded trails, by the water, etc. and they brought their dog :) really… nothing makes me happier than a happy couple with a happy dog

dian contacted me about 2 months ago about doing an e-session in oxford. I love oxford, so I was really excited about shooting there. It’s kind of rare that I get an inquiry for just an e-session, it’s usually part of one of our wedding collections. but that’s what they wanted and I was happy to oblige. dian and rick were staying at the combsberry inn in oxford and it is stunning, especially the grounds. I met up with rick outside and during our conversation, I discovered that they had actually been married the day before at the courthouse and that their main celebration was going to be held in thailand in march – THAILAND! of course I let them know that I’d be happy fold up all 6 feet of me into a suitcase to come along :) we started the session at combsberry and then drove into town where it ws easy to find some beautiful locations
