2016 Weddings In Review

2016 was a special year for me. It was my second year being self employed. I have been a full time photographer since I graduated from CDIA Boston University in 2006 but I worked for a nationwide portrait company for eight of the ten years I’ve been a photographer. I officially went 100% on my own in January 2015. In January 2016 I launched my new photography company Picture Lady LLC. Since I started Picture Lady I scaled back on the amount of weddings that I photographed. I didn’t want to overload myself and I wanted to make sure I was able to give my clients the attention that they deserved. While I photographed a handful of weddings as a second shooter for photographer friends of mine I photographed just ten of my own weddings. Below is a sampling of images from my 2016 weddings. I want to thank all of my clients for choosing me to document your special day. It was an absolute pleasure working with you, your families and your close friends. May you cherish your images forever. Happy new year!!

Searles Castle Fall Wedding :: Henryk & Aimee

I enjoying meeting my potential clients in person as it gives us the opportunity to get to know each other. They get to tell me all about their vision for their special day and we discuss how we can make that dream a reality. When I met Aimee she was very sweet, easy going and organized. At our second meeting I met her fiancé’ Henryk. It’s always nice to see a groom to be that is not only excited about the wedding but happy to help with the process. I loved the energy that the two of them had and it was obvious they were very much in love. I knew right away that we were a great fit and were going to have fun working together.

I photographed their Fall wedding at the gorgeous Searles Castle this past October. They decided to do a first look and their formal photos before their ceremony. A lot of my clients choose this option as it gives me more time to work alone with just the bride and groom. The more time I have the more photos my clients receive. Though there wasn’t any rain in the forecast doing the formals before the ceremony worked out really well. It started to drizzle just before and just after their ceremony. Luckily it didn’t delay our plans and the day went really smoothly. Below are some of my images from their Big Day. Comments are appreciated. Enjoy!

Searles Castle Wedding Emotional First Look :: Aimee & Henryk

I have been waiting for over a year to document Aimee and Henryk’s wedding day. From the moment I met them I knew that they were head of heels for each other. For the first time I’m going to do something a little different and show a sneak peek of only their first look. I’m sure I will post more photos soon as there are so many great moments that happened throughout the day but I thought these moments were so special and really shows how much these two love each other.

Renaissance Golf Club Haverhill Wedding :: Carmen & Susana

I had the pleasure of working with Carmen and Susana twice now. First I did their engagement session last Summer at Lynch Park in Beverly and then again this passed Spring photographing their lovely wedding. They had their ceremony at St. Theresa’s Catholic Church which is a beautiful church in North Reading and their reception was at the gorgeous Renaissance Golf Club in Haverhill, MA. It was a perfect day in April and we were able to take all of their portraits outdoors. Below are some images from their special day.

Oceanview Nahant, MA wedding :: John & Gabrielle

I photographed Johns twin sisters wedding back in 2012. John and Gabrielle have two beautiful children together and they’ve been waiting to get married for many years. It was a very chilly day in November but they had all of their closest friends and family by their side. They did a first look outdoors followed by as many family and wedding party portraits we could squeeze in until we decided we were just too cold to continue. We then moved inside to the bridal suite. I photographed two other weddings at the Oceanview this past year and their bridal suite is great for getting ready portraits, a first look and even family and wedding party portraits if necessary. It’s actually one of the largest bridal suites I’ve seen at a wedding venue. They had their ceremony indoors, followed by a cocktail hour in their gorgeous lounge area. After cocktail hour and a few more portraits the happy couple were introduced into their reception. DJ Carla D played some really fun games that got their guests on the dance floor early in the evening which definetely set the mood for the night. Here’s a few images of their special day. Enjoy!

Barker Tavern Scituate Wedding :: Mike & Jenna

I couldn’t have been happier for Mike and Jenna that it was 62 degrees out on their wedding day in mid December. I met Mike for the first time at the Scituate Light House which is where he was going to see his gorgeous bride for the first time. His reaction to seeing Jenna was genuine and you could really see how in love these two are. Even though I was only able to spend eight hours with them I could really see the connection these two had with each other. Here is a peek at a few images from their special day. 2016-01-12_0001 2016-01-12_0003 2016-01-12_0011 2016-01-12_0012 2016-01-12_0013 2016-01-12_0014Jenna’s bouquet was beautiful and perfect for a winter wedding!

Peabody Marriott Wedding :: Ben & Kayla

Ben and Kayla had their ceremony and reception at the Peabody Marriott on a Friday evening this past August. It was one of those days that everyone just kept their fingers crossed that the rain would hold up. Their ceremony and reception were both indoors but our goal was to photograph Kayla with her bridesmaids before the ceremony and then finish the rest of the formal portraits following the ceremony. The ceremony was short but sweet. We were able to get through most of the formal portraits but then it did start to rain. Luckily there was a room inside that we were able to use to finish taking some portraits of Ben and his groomsmen before the happy couple were introduced to their reception. It’s always good to have a plan B especially in New England. During their reception I found this really funky red wall and decided I’d do some more bride and groom portraits since we were interrupted by the weather. I absolutely love these shots of Kayla and Ben! Here’s a peek at a few images from their special day.

Nahant wedding :: Alex & Erin :: Saugus Elks

Alex and Erin met in May of 2013 on Match.com. So if any of your are thinking online dating is a waste of time it clearly isn’t. These too are literally head over heels for each other. In August of 2014 Alex and Erin went to vacation to Las Vegas. It was Erin’s first time there. Alex wanted to take her to the Bellagio to see the water show. Sadly they had just missed it. Erin could see Alex was so nervous but clearly couldn’t wait for the next show to start. He got down on his knee and asked Erin to marry him. Of course she said, “Yes!” The best part is Alex invited Erin’s family along on vacation to surprise her and it was their best vacation to date. I haven’t spent much time with these two but after following them in Facebook, seeing their adorable selfies on Instagram and having photographed their wedding I can see that these two are truly in love and meant to be together. I hope you two had an amazing honeymoon in Hawaii!! Here’s a little sneak peek at some of my images from their “Big Day!” Enjoy!

The groomsmen were going to play a joke and pretend they lost them. Well they didn’t have to. As the justice of the peace asked the best man for the rings he realized he actually didn’t have them. 2015-09-18_00222015-09-18_0021Don’t worry the rings were safe!! Grandma had them. Phew!

Cambridge Marriott wedding :: Nicole & Dan

I’ve been waiting for over a year to photograph Nicole and Dan’s wedding. I knew from the first day that we met that they were going to be a blast to work with. They are one of the sweetest couples and they’re not afraid to let loose and have fun! They even gave me amazing gifts on their wedding day. I absolutely love the soap and Nikon lens coffee mug they got me. That was very thoughtful of them. I did their engagement photos in Boston’s Post Office Square and by the Boston waterfront last Summer. Exactly one year later Nicole and Dan got married on a Saturday in June at Saint Columbkille Parish in Brighton and they had their reception in the gorgeous ballroom at the Cambridge Marriott. I love the ballroom in the Marriott! I photographed another wedding there a couple of years ago too.  I started the day off popping in to say, “Hello” to Dan who was going to be photographed with his groomsmen by my assistant photographer. The look on Dan’s face when I walked in was priceless. I’m getting teary eyed just thinking about it. He gave me a big hug as soon as I walked in. I could tell he was nervous. He had that look like he was just about to marry the love of his life, his best friend. I introduced him to my photographer and before I left to go see Nicole and her bridesmaids he gave me another big hug. It was a nice way to start off the day. I photographed Nicole getting ready with her bridesmaids and all of her bridal details like her dress, shoes, flowers jewelry, purse and her and her bridesmaids in their adorable robes. Here’s a sneak peek of some of my favorite images from their special day. 2015-07-29_0001 2015-07-29_0002 2015-07-29_0003 I absolutely LOVE the robes that Nicole gave her bridesmaids! 2015-07-29_0004 Nicole and her precious niece.2015-07-29_0005 2015-07-29_0006Seeing Nicole in her in her dress for the first time.2015-07-29_0062 2015-07-29_0063 2015-07-29_00972015-07-29_0018 2015-07-29_0019 2015-07-29_0007 2015-07-29_0008 2015-07-29_0046 2015-07-29_0009 2015-07-29_0010 2015-07-29_0011 2015-07-29_0012 2015-07-29_0013 2015-07-29_0014 2015-07-29_0015

I had no idea the groom had a twin brother until I walked in the hotel room to greet him. 2015-07-29_0018 2015-07-29_0019
