Maggie + Tim // Cortland, NY

I really am speechless when it comes to try to put into words how much fun I had shooting this wedding. Maggie and Tim are perfect for each other and make an awesome couple. I know there are special things in their future.

It was a beautiful day in upstate NY; I could not have asked for a better day to take photos. After the ceremony we went to Maggie’s house to take photos in her back yard. After that we went straight into the reception underneath a big white tent which also took place on their property.

The wedding took place in Cortland, NY where Maggie and her family are from.

Getting to see Maggie dance with her father as her sister Alanna-Marie sang “Father’s Song“. A song she wrote and recorded on her first album “Hands in the Land”. It was so special for me because I’m a big fan of her music and it really hit home for me.  

Here’s the music video I filmed and produced for her // I’m Sorry.

This is why I love what I do. For these moments, getting to document one of the biggest day’s of a couples life.

 

Jen M&M - What FABULOUS pictures of a beautiful couple on a sacred day in their lives!!!

Gloria Boudreau - These photographs are spectacular. You have captured the images of a beautiful wedding. I,Maggie’s paternal grandmother, was there and these photos bring back all the lovely memories. You have done a magnificent job. Thank you very much.

Brianna + Joey // Salem, OH

I have known Bri + Joey for several years now, having gone to school with them. It was a pleasure to meet their family and friends this past weekend. They both got ready next door to each other with Joey and his groomsmen getting ready at his house and Bri and the bridesmaids at the neighborhood clubhouse.

They got married at St. Paul Catholic Church in Salem, OH which is also where Joey’s parents and grandparents got married. After the ceremony the bridal party hopped on a trolly to take photos.

The reception was held at The Barn & Gazebo, which was a great space with a lot of love, laughter and dancing!2Q7A1583 storyline 012Q7A15392Q7A18172Q7A1620 storyline 022Q7A16562Q7A17712Q7A18782Q7A19362Q7A19472Q7A19532Q7A19602Q7A19592Q7A2104 storyline 052Q7A21582Q7A21662Q7A1976 storyline 032Q7A20372Q7A20542Q7A22332Q7A22152Q7A22432Q7A22592Q7A2308 storyline 062Q7A2367 storyline 072Q7A24092Q7A24172Q7A2422 storyline 042Q7A25662Q7A2692 storyline 082Q7A26982Q7A27052Q7A28492Q7A27862Q7A29292Q7A29212Q7A29852Q7A30072Q7A30132Q7A30382Q7A30442Q7A30742Q7A30972Q7A3106 storyline 102Q7A31622Q7A31672Q7A31812Q7A32262Q7A32532Q7A32772Q7A32832Q7A33082Q7A33792Q7A33862Q7A33902Q7A33962Q7A34082Q7A34622Q7A35482Q7A35912Q7A36422Q7A36432Q7A36492Q7A36642Q7A36762Q7A37582Q7A34742Q7A34922Q7A35362Q7A38262Q7A38402Q7A38622Q7A38682Q7A38932Q7A39072Q7A39492Q7A40102Q7A40262Q7A43322Q7A40992Q7A41152Q7A41292Q7A41602Q7A41972Q7A42932Q7A42342Q7A42392Q7A4322 storyline 112Q7A44982Q7A45032Q7A46222Q7A46472Q7A46762Q7A47752Q7A47942Q7A48312Q7A48822Q7A49702Q7A51442Q7A50962Q7A5120The evening was ended with floating lanterns disappearing in the night’s sky.

York + Kyle // Pharsalia Farm, VA

I went down to Pharsalia Farm, VA to document a wedding with my good friend Char Beck, tell your friends.

Beautiful day, great weather, awesome location and wonderful people!607A9526607A9605This shot looks like a scene straight out of James Bond. 607A9732607A0001Storyline_01Storyline_02607A0198607A0166607A9945One of the great things about being the second shooter is that I get to see parts of the day that I usually wouldn’t if I was the main photographer. Like this frame, right as the door opens and the bride walks down with her father. It was a really cool moment.607A0220607A0251607A0276607A0350607A0363607A0368607A0372607A0452607A0508

Olivia + David // Fernwood State Forest

Just a little over a year ago, I was one of David’s groomsmen in Olivia and David’s wedding. These two are some of my closest friends and I’m so happy I was able to capture some special frames for them as they welcome their first child into the world in a few weeks.

Before taking these maternity photos, I thought to myself how quickly life goes by. I remember how I first met both of them, I met Olivia freshman year of college and David not too long after. David and I were roommate in our semester abroad my sophomore year. Just two years later not only are they married, but they have a child on the way. This is a reminder to me to be thankful each and everyday for the gift of life!

We got on the road before 8am as we headed to Fernwood State Forest for their maternity shoot. IMG_9056IMG_9095 copyIMG_9145 copyIMG_9206IMG_9387IMG_9391IMG_9412IMG_9331IMG_9350IMG_9419IMG_9498IMG_9536 copyIMG_9578IMG_9588IMG_9640IMG_9695Here’s an extra for Olivia’s blog, check it out.

Rebecca + Joseph // Washington, DC

We went to Washington, DC to film the wedding of Rebecca + Joseph.

They had their ceremony and reception at Union Station, a couple blocks away from the Capital. It was a beautiful day filled with love and laughter.

The soundtrack for the film are two songs by U.S. Royalty, one of R + J’s favorite bands. They also made a surprise appearance at their reception and performed a few songs for them.
