Sam and Corey's Fall Engagement Session

westernmassweddingphotography-12.jpg

Samantha and Corey will be getting married next year at the Mill on the River and I am so excited to be there as their photographer!

Samantha is a teacher and Corey is an engineer and they are just the sweetest couple ever.

I took their engagement photos at the Quabbin Reservoir on the most perfect fall day we’ve had this season. The session also happened to be one year and a day from their wedding date so the countdown is on!

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!

Happy with a Chance of Showers | Thom + Cassandra | Ludlow, MA | 8.18.18

You never know what the weather will be like the day you get married. On Cassandra and Thom’s wedding day the skies decided to open up and join in the celebration! They were married in an outdoor ceremony, performed by the groom’s childhood friend, at the groom’s family home. Getting a little wet did not seem to dampen anyone’s spirit!

Luckily, Cassandra and Thom are creative, resourceful people and surround themselves with other creative and resourceful people. We had to shift some of the wedding timeline to get the photos that they wanted but we made it work!

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!
