Sneak Peak: Renee and Shaun

Renee and Shaun had an amazing day to celebrate their marriage at Look Park this past Saturday. I already kind of feel like I've know these two for years. We had a great engagement session at Stanley Park in Westfield a few months ago where I really got to know them and their pup, Quincy (who I got to see again while Renee was getting ready but was sadly not with us at the park). So on their wedding day we already had our own rapport and shorthand for posing that added to the flow of the whole photo process.

Renee was so stunning on in her gown and Shaun was looking equally handsome. You should've seen him at the altar. As Renee was walking toward him from quite a distance he wouldn't look, adding to his own anticipation and saving the moment of seeing her until she was almost close enough for him to touch. It was such a pleasure being there with them and even getting to know their family and friends throughout the evening. I can't wait to go through the rest of the photos from their day, but for now, here's your peak!

Sneak Peak: Michelle and Glenn

What a gorgeous weekend we just had! I had the privilege of photographing two amazing couples and their wedding celebrations, as well as attending the Big E on Sunday with my man.

On Friday, Michelle and Glenn were married at St. Michael's Church in East Longmeadow. The light was flooding through the church's windows throughout their ceremony and we even caught the tail end of a beautiful sunset at their reception at Ludlow Country Club. You can just feel how much they love each other being near these two and I loved being a part of their wedding day!

I was reading Real Simple and this quote at the very beginning of the magazine caught me. All I could think about was how the beautiful women that I work with, my gorgeous brides, truly bring their gowns to life with the beauty that they radiate. It made me smile and I wanted to share it with you all.

A dress has no life of its own unless it is worn, and as soon as this happens another personality takes over from you and animates it, or tries to, glorifies or destroys it, or makes it into a song of beauty.

Sneak Peek: Amy and Ed

I had the pleasure of being a part of Amy and Ed's gorgeous wedding last Saturday. Not only are they a gorgeous couple that just radiate their love for each other but it was a wonderful day despite the unpredictable weather! The rain held long enough for us to get some great outside their gorgeous venue, Seven Hills Inn in Lenox MA, and even after the down pour started we were able to take advantage of the gorgeous space inside the inn as well! (I'm a little in love with the Seven Hills Inn and all of its charm)

Sneak Peek: Emily and Matt

I've been feeling a little behind this week, probably because the week started with my computer going in for repairs, but I'm catching up! Which leads me to how excited I am to share a sneak peek with you from Emily and Matt's wedding last Friday. After their gorgeous ceremony at Our Lady of the Valley in Easthampton we had just enough time to capture a few sunset images of this gorgeous couple at Look Park before their reception at the Garden House.

Congratulations Alyssa & Mathias

I had the pleasure of seeing my friend and pledge sister, Alyssa, married on August 19, 2012 in Brooklyn NY to Mathias, who she actually met in college through our sorority. It was a beautiful ceremony. This was the first time I've been to an Orthodox Jewish Wedding and I loved experiencing the rituals and traditions.

Even though I was a guest, I brought my camera and a couple lenses, stuffed into my purse, with me for the fun of it (it just feels natural to have them at a wedding now!). Here were a few details and moments from the day, nothing formal since I was their guest and there to help them celebrate!

Sneak Peek: Amanda and Daniel

Last Friday, Amanda and Dan had the most beautiful wedding. The view of the sunset from the Log Cabin was breathtaking and the perfect setting for two of the sweetest people to be married. I'm looking forward to going through all the photos but for now, here's your sneak peek from the day!
