Julie & Bryan (September 20, 2008)
I usually make it down to the Cape a few times a year for weddings, but this year my weddings have been a little more landlocked. So I was excited to head down to the Cape on Saturday for Julie and Bryan’s wedding. We started out at the Sea Crest Resort in Falmouth where the girls were all packed into a little room with a great oceanfront view. After the hair and make-up was perfectly coiffed and applied, we headed down to the beach for a few portraits of the girls before heading over to the Brookside Club in Bourne.
The ceremony took place at the top of the golf course, with the rolling green fairways leading the eye to the blue water of the Atlantic in the distance. As Julie and Bryan declared their lifelong commitment, the sun set behind them framing them in the golden light. Then it was off for a limo ride to a local beach, where we took advantage of the sunset light to capture a series of romantic portraits. We also took advantage of the dock leading off of a beach house, figuring (hoping) the tenants wouldn’t mind. As we left the dock, we noticed the house was named “Capt Nasty”, and just had to work it into the photos!
Then it was back to the Brookside club where the party lasted into the night!

Nicole & Lance Engagement Portraits
Since Nicole and Lance are planning a lovely fall beach wedding, away from the hustle and bustle of the city, they decided that a more urban feel to their engagement portraits would be just the ticket. With that in mind we decided to make the arduous trek to the top of Beacon Hill in Boston on Tuesday evening for their session. After meeting in front of the State House, and waving at the governor, we dove into the red bricked, purple glassed jungle looking for all of the little nooks and crannies that one of the oldest part of the city had to offer. A couple of hours later, we found ourselves on the banks of the Charles river, where we enjoyed the lovely sunset.

Alison & John (September 13, 2008)
Indian summer held on for another week to grace Alison and John with perfect wedding day. We began the day at the Marriott in Quincy. When I arrived at Alison’s room, I was immediately greeted by a whirlwind of excitement as she and her 8 gorgeous bridesmaids took their turns in the hair and makeup chairs. When everyone was made up, and Alison was begarbed in her lovely dress and gold Jimmy Choo shoes, we took some time to capture a few bridal portraits on the way to the limos waiting down stairs. Then it was off to St Anne’s in Somerville for the beautiful ceremony.
Once the “I do’s” were said, and the guests greeted at the church doors, we all headed to Granite Links Golf Club in Quincy to prepare for the party. Granite Links is in a beautiful location, with the ballroom overlooking an awesome view of the Boston skyline, but one of the coolest things about it is the stone ruins at the bottom of the hill…and that’s where we decided to go for the portraits of the newlyweds. Amongst the crumbling stone walls, Alison and John climbed and balanced, and fought the high grass and brambles as we took full advantage of the unique location.
Then it was back up to the ballroom where the sun set over the Boston skyline as everyone ate, and danced, and smoked hand rolled cigars, and toasted the perfect day and the beautiful couple.

Anita & Sujit Engagement Portraits
Anita and Sujit are currently planning their wedding from opposite ends of the country, making the time they spend together extra special. I was lucky enough to be included in some of their together time when we met for an engagement portrait session Sunday afternoon at Harvard Business School. Though they’d done their undergraduate work at rival colleges, they both ended up at HBS, where they found much more than a great education when they met each other!
They came to the shoot with a couple of really fun ideas. First off, they wanted to show off their rival school spirit. So we started at Harvard Stadium, with them each proclaiming the superiority of their Alma mater, while wearing the school colors. Then we moved on to the classroom they reserved for some “school days” fun. Finally we moved on to the Harvard footbridge to catch the perfect sunset.
