This year has been an amazing year. I began the year preparing for my rebrand, and am about to end the year having my best year ever! It was filled with amazing clients, and their families. It was a year of so much change, but change in exactly the direction I wanted to go. From being with clients that gave me joy to photographing at venues I’ve been dreaming of. Including a Boston Wedding or two at a new venue!

This year’s weddings had it all, and I want to celebrate all there was, including the love, laughter, and tears.

Getting ready is always full of different emotions and activity. At moments calm, while other times, bustling with frantic energy. There were moments in family homes, gorgeous hotel suites, intimate restaurants, and my first wedding where the bride and groom got ready together!


After getting ready, there’s always those moments of anticipation. Whether it’s walking up behind your groom or bride for the First Look, or walking down the aisle, it’s that mix of nervousness and excitement that is so fully palpable.



And speaking of the Ceremony, the mix of traditions this year was amazing. I had so many wide ranging religious and secular ceremonies, along with those who included notes from varying traditions. Each was so uniquely perfect, surrounded by loved ones.



Each of my weddings was uniquely wonderful! I had such joy spending time with all of them, and there were some great moments, filled with laughs, tears, and everything in between! But those moments alone with just my couples, are always the most special.



And of course there’s one of my favorite parts, the First Dance. The moment where you announce yourselves as forever together, and twirl your way towards your future together…



Then there are those moments in between. From stolen glances, to tears, and smiles, I’m always on the lookout for something fleeting to preserve, forever.


Finally, there’s the F-U-N! After all the formalities, it’s all about the fun! Time spent surrounded by those you love, and who love you! Congratulations, and thank you, to all my couples and your families. It’s been an honor.
