Jenny and Jeremy's Colorful Engagement Session in Northampton, Massachusetts

Weddings can be a big investment and I am meeting so many couples lately who are becoming very conscious about where their dollars are going. Jenny and Jeremy have chosen to have their 2020 wedding at Artists for Humanities Epicenter in Boston, a non-profit arts space that provides under-resourced urban youth with the keys to self-sufficiency through paid employment in art and design.

Jenny and Jeremy’s rental fee for the venue is 100% helping fund the employment of over 250 under-resourced Boston teens annually in art and design. Thanks to their rental, AFH can provide a safe space for teens to engage in experiential art and enterprise learning during out-of-school time. How cool is that?!

I love how thoughtful they were when choosing their wedding venue. The space looks so interesting and its look is always changing with new art from the kids. I am SO excited to photograph their event next year.

Jenny and Jeremy were wanting to get out of the city for their session, and while they had never been to Northampton, they were excited to explore all of the fun things it has to offer. We spent an hour poking around the city and getting to know each other. They admitted right away that they hadn’t had real photos taken ever as a couple and of course they warned me in advance.

(As a side note, I get warned a lot like this and it’s never been an issue, so take note future couples, you’ll all be fine and look like super models, k?)

I wanted their session to be just as colorful and fun as their venue so we decided to use many of the bright murals around town. Some have been there for years and some were painted just very recently.

This mural by Brooklyn based Ramiro Davaro-Comas is one of the newer ones and one of my favorites. I love the ninja turtles peaking around the corner.

FUN FACT

Did you know the ninja turtles were conceptualized in Northampton?

I also love how the artist captured the story of the heist in such a fun and unique style. I was so excited when Jenny and Jeremy agreed to be part of the scene for a moment. Nearby shoppers and pedestrians got a kick out of seeing this shot come together as well.

Custom-made Maple USB and Slide Box Combos

I am so excited to now offer these beautiful, custom-made, maple USB and slide box combos. We all wish we were a little bit better about keeping track of our personal photos (myself included). This is a great way to hold onto your most treasured memories on a natural wood printed keepsake.

Inside the box is a custom 16GB USB stick that holds all of your high resolution wedding photos as well as a space for 4x6 prints. Your image is printed directly onto the wood surfaces of the USB drive and the memory stick, so the natural grain of the wood will peak through your image.

Most of my wedding packages now include one of these beauties, but if yours doesn’t, you can always add one to your cart after your gallery is delivered or shoot me a message and I can help you get one!

It’s also a beautiful piece to display in your home and a nice little reminder of your happiest day. You can throw it on a bookshelf or bedside table and be at peace knowing that your photos are accessible and in one place.

Your Wedding Photography Timeline

Your Wedding Photography Timeline

If you recently got engaged (congrats!) you are probably gearing up to devote your entire life to planning your big day. You’ve probably seen some friends or family go through this, or at least have seen the movie bridesmaids so you probably know that this can turn into a full time job.

As your wedding photographer, I feel that it is super important that after you book me I don’t drop off the face of the planet until a month before your wedding, so there are many points throughout the year or two that we connect to talk details or sort through any questions you may have.

Here is a helpful timeline I share with couples at our initial meeting so they can get a sense of what the time will be like between the moment I am booked to delivery day and beyond.
