Extended Family Session at Quabbin Reservoir

Last year Melissa and Matt surprised their extended family with a gift certificate for a 2018 photo session with me. More and more, I think people are choosing to spend money on experiences rather than things, and this is the perfect way to do that. This crew recently grew by two super cute kiddos so having some photos taken was even more pressing!

A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of photographing their crew at the Quabbin Reservoir. This location has got to be one of my favorites for photos, especially in the fall!

Here is a round up of some of my favorites.

Emma + Mark | Springfield, MA Wedding

Emma and Mark have been partners for many years now, and recently they decided that they wanted to be married, but without all of the hubbub of a big wedding. They chose to get eloped at Springfield City Hall in Springfield, MA on May 4, 2018.

Emma is a knitwear designer, sewer, photographer, and all around creative. She and I met at WEBS where we worked in the multimedia and photo department. Emma has been making a lot of her own clothes this year, and decided to make her own wedding dress as part of the Me Made May event this month.

She said, "I wanted something modern, not a typical wedding dress so I could wear it other times but something classic over trendy." 

I personally think it turned out so lovely and really captured her creative spirit!

We've had a pretty long winter here in western Massachusetts, and spring really did wait for their wedding day to arrive. EVERYTHING was in bloom! After their very short ceremony by Grace Ceremonies at city hall, we spent an hour at Forest Park taking photos and admiring spring at its best.

Congratulations Emma and Mark! I'm so happy for you!
