With the laughter there was also love. There was not a dry eye when Shawn got down on one knee, said vows, and presented Meghan’s daughter Emma with a ring too! (I may have had a hard time seeing through my lens)

After the ceremony, the wedding party and groomsmen gamely followed me around Northampton so we could get some amazing photos including stopping traffic in the middle of Northampton to take a photo on the rainbow crosswalk!

Jess and Emil - Quabbin Reservoir Engagement Session

Emil proposed to his fiance Jess on a hot air balloon ride through Vermont and New Hampshire last year. Next year they’ll be married at the Salem Cross Inn! These two were a dream to photograph — adventurous, fun, and full of love for each other.

We held the session at the Quabbin Reservoir in Belchertown, Massachusetts.

Emily + Shaun | Newburyport, MA

According to local sources, only 22 weddings have occurred in this historic Newburyport home since the 1700's. It used to belong to the very first governor of Massachusetts, hosts New England's oldest candlepin bowling alley in the basement, and was also a brothel at one time. It's rumored that George Washington spent the night there! 

When I was asked to photograph their wedding I had to say YES. Emily has been a close friend of mine since we were little ones, and being able to photograph such an important moment in her life meant the world to me. Congratulations Emily and Shaun! I love you both so very much.
