Mike & Marisa | Cape Cod Wedding Photographer

Last month I photographed a wedding in Cape Cod for a couple I am happy to call friends. Mike and Marisa are high school sweethearts which as Mike’s Aunt Sandra (who officiated the wedding) pointed out is so rare these days. I met Mike & Marisa years ago thru mutual friends, and was thrilled when they asked me to photograph their wedding at Truro Vineyards. For every wedding I photograph, I love to get to know the bride and groom a bit before the big day (one of the reasons I include engagement photography in my wedding collections) and get everyone to be themselves in front of me and the camera- so knowing the couple- and most of the wedding party- made my job that much easier, love that. I have lots of favorite images from their wedding day to share!

I started the day off with the ladies – while they were primping I was photographing some of Marisa’s beautiful wedding details. 

Mike & Marisa are big game players (and constant Words with Friends challengers) and I couldn’t resist playing with this Scrabble set once I saw it downstairs.

‘Getting Ready’ is one of my favorite parts to photograph of the wedding day – everyone is excited for the day and pretty relaxed (a mimosa never hurts), which makes for some amazing candid portraits – I just love this one. Kate did a fantastic job on everyone’s hair that morning, all the ladies were looking lovely.

Especially the bride, isn’t she radiant?

Meanwhile, the guys were across the driveway getting ready at the carriage house. I got there just in time for Mike’s tie, and I think I made him a bit nervous as there was a bit of a Goldilocks situation with the tie  – luckily Khadder stepped in to save the day! ;)

Mike and Marisa opted to do a First Look so they could enjoy their cocktail hour at the reception. I love having time to photograph all the formal portraits before the ceremony!

After a few wedding portraits at the house, we headed over to Truro Vineyards for some more photography. If you are ever down the Cape, you must stop into Truro Vineyards – they have a lovely wine tasting, not to mention a beautiful location for a wedding. We couldn’t have asked for a nicer day.

I absolutely ADORE this image – my favorite from the day – you can just see how in love and happy they are!

After the portraits, we whisked Marisa inside until the ceremony was ready to start. I just love this image of her father walking her down the aisle. You can see the pride on his face, and rightly so.

Mike and Marisa exchanged vows they had written themselves, and I’m not ashamed to say a shed a few tears myself – what an emotionally charged ceremony.

And then it was time to eat, drink, and dance the night away!
Uncle Mario was the hit of the dance floor!

Mike & Marisa, thank you so much for sharing your day with me – can’t wait to share the rest of the images with you!

Julia | MA Senior Photographer

Its the thick of the senior season – and I’ve met up with lots of great soon to be seniors this month! Meet Julia – a senior I photographed late in the Fall and haven’t had a chance to share her session yet. Most of my sessions for Boston area seniors are photographed in July or August, while kids are out of school over the Summer. I do also photograph some senior portraits in September and October in time for high school yearbook submission. I think Julia’s session might have been the latest session to date, and we just eeked it into the yearbook for her :) It was fun shooting in November, an interesting challenge because I am so used to photographing seniors in the lush green grasses and trees of summer. As you can see from some of these images, the leaves had fallen from the trees weeks earlier, and things were looking a bit… brown. Turns out, this was a *perfect* backdrop for Julia’s teal dress – I absolutely adore the color combination, and she was a trooper as I recall it being quite chilly that day!

Julia, I hope you had a fantastic senior year and wish you all the best with your acting aspirations!

I totally love this free spirited shot of her!

Boston Baby Photographer | Annika at 3 months

Wow, its finally Summer! I have been very busy lately with sessions and weddings (both photographing them and about to be in two this summer)! I photographed 3 month old little Annika back in the Spring in Watertown. Romil and Caitlin’s house was wonderfully decorated in a mid century modern style – I wish I could have had the day to shoot there! Three months can be a tricky time to photograph – not as small and sleepy as a newborn, but yet not able to sit up on their own either. Annika was a total gem though – she was happily held by Mom and Dad (and Grandma!) and was quite content to lounge on the couch and check me out. Caitlin had a gorgeous piece of Marimekko fabric that we worked into the session for a great pop of color.

Thanks for a fantastic photography session Romil, Caitlin and Annika!
