Keith and Eric are both from western Massachusetts but were living in New York City when they met through an online dating app.

Keith, who is originally from Amherst, was actually sitting at the RMV in Easthampton, scrolling through his dating app when he noticed Eric, who was living in New York City. After a bit of reading, he learned that Eric was actually from Easthampton! They connected and had an amazing first date together. Keith knew that he’d found “the one” almost right away, and he did what any normal person in this situation would do.

He ran away!

Keith freaked out and disappeared for a bit to come to terms with his single life ending. Luckily, he was able to calm himself down and embark on this new adventure with his amazing new partner.

Keith and Eric got engaged last year in Mexico City and have been living together in New York. They love to go on long walks, visit museums, and see musical performances in the city. Today they left on their honeymoon, back to Mexico, which now holds a special place in their hearts.

As their wedding date neared, I kept an eye on the weather, and while rain was not in the forecast, a very intense heat wave was. Keith and Eric met me in downtown Easthampton before the ceremony where we took some portraits around the mill buildings and in front of some of the murals. It was so hot and humid to be wearing suits but it didn’t stop them from enjoying the quite time together.

Since last year, they have been planning this intimate wedding in Eric’s parents backyard. I met with them in May while they were here on a visit to work on the outdoor space. It was clear that they did a ton of work to turn the backyard into the perfect location for their celebration.

The ceremony was officiated by Amherst based Justice of the Peace Robin Diamond. Keith and Eric said their vows under the chuppah and finished their ceremony with a kiss and a heavy stomp on two glasses as their family and friends yelled “Mazeltov”! The reception was catered by western massachusetts based Wheelhouse Catering, using all locally sourced ingredients.

I had so much fun working with them and I really couldn’t have asked for a more down to earth and sweet couple. Congratulations Keith and Eric. It was a pleasure to work with you and capture the love you have for one another. I wish you a lifetime of love, health, and happiness!

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!
