We recently photographed Mia and Jared’s Wedding at an incredible Seacoast venue – The Oceanview of Nahant. This venue deserves a separate post and acknowledgement, but today I wanted to highlight an incredible live band the Groove Authority. I have photographed hundreds of weddings and have seen plenty of live bands. These folks are a step above most other bands for sure! Read More
Congratulations to Mia and Jared with their Wedding at Oceanview of Nahant! What a truly amazing venue for two great people. We love getting to know our couples, and really enjoyed the time we spent with Mia and Jared. Mia and Jared had a really cool engagement shoot and we had an amazing time in the Boston Gardens with both them. You can read all about their Engagement Shoot here.
Looking for an amazing venue in Southern New Hampshire? You won’t be disappointed with a Harris Pelham Inn Wedding! This is definitely a spectacular venue! The Harris Pelham Inn Wedding staff works on every detail to make the day just perfect! Check out their wedding page for more information! Brian and Kelli’s day started with the couple preparing in their spacious rooms. Adequate space is one aspect that is often overlooked when deciding on a venue. The Pelham Inn has suites on separate floors for the bride and groom, which gives them an area to move around in as well.
Geoff & Ashley could not have picked a better venue for their wedding than the Cruiseport in Gloucester! If you’re considering a secoast venue, consider a Gloucester Cruiseport Wedding!
Well, let’s start at the beginning. The bridal party prepared for the day at the Rockport Inn a few miles away. This is a great local Inn for brides and grooms to prepare at… the facilities are great with a beautiful pool and lounge area. The Rockport Inn captures the Gloucester “sea town” feel with crushed shells in the beds and tasteful nautical decor.
From there, the wedding party headed over to the Cruiseport for their ceremony and reception. The happy couple tied the knot and the Cruiseport was kind enough to allow us access to the yacht for some harbor photos! Upon our return, the Cruiseport was ready for the reception and the party started! We captured a few really nice evening and reception shots during the night. Geoff and Ashley were troopers and were more than willing to work with us for some amazing photographs! Thanks again Geoff & Ashley, it was our pleasure to work with you and capture your special day!

Engagement photo sessions with beautiful natural back drops are my favorite sessions. One of my favorite locations is Prescott Park in Portsmouth, NH. The flower garden is truly amazing there. Thousands of flowers bloom throughout the summer in the public gardens at Prescott Park. The fountains and Japanese Flowering Crabapple Trees create a unique environment for engagement pictures… And then the light! A few hours before the sunset, the lighting in the garden is truly incredible!
Tanja and Dana chose to have their engagement session at the gardens. I could not be happier with the results! Congratulations Tanja and Dana on your engagement! I am looking forward to your beautiful Wedding day!
Considering your Wachusett Mountain Wedding?
Everybody knows Wachusett Mountian as a great winter ski resort. During the off-season, they change their focus over to events with a focus on Wachusett Mountain Weddings! Summer weddings at ski resorts are the best-kept secret in New England! Most of these venues offer unique twists to make your wedding day truly unique and special. The grounds are simply amazing and the mountain offers breathe-taking views. This is a photograph’s dream!
First of all, Don & Bonnie made the right choice in selecting their Wachusett Mountian Wedding. The Bridal Suite was spectacular! A huge spacious room for the Bride and all of her Bridesmaids to prepare just steps away from the ceremony and reception room below. Don and the Groomsman also had a large suite overlooking the mountainside. Perfect for the men to step out on the deck and relax a bit; hey, that’s what guys do! Don and Bonnie chose to do a First Look on top of the mountain. We captured some great shots of them overlooking the Massachusetts skyline! Afterward, we headed back down to the lodge with the bridal party and family photos. It was on to the ceremony! Wachusett Mountian offers a few locations for the ceremony, Don and Bonnie selected the deck overlooking the lake. This worked perfectly for their wedding of a hundred people!
Now is when the fun started!
Wachusett Mountian offers a free Sky Rides to the entire wedding party! What a great 30 minutes of fun! Of course, the photographers were included and we captured some amazing pictures of the newlyweds on the lift! Afterward, all of the weddings guests settled in the reception for a great meal, dancing & celebration! Most of all, we snuck the bride and groom away for some final shots in the evening overlooking the lodge and lift. Congratulations to Don and Bonnie, you are amazing people, surrounded by great family & friends… and we were honored to capture your special day! Finally, here’s a preview of your Wachusett Mountain Wedding!

Haley & Sam selected some of their favorite photographs from their wedding portfolio. Here’s a video slideshow set to Haley & Sam’s wedding song… really an amazing day! Congratulations again to Haley & Sam, your Andover Country Club Wedding was one amazing night! Please enjoy this “Sneak Peak” of your wedding photos!
Congratulations to Mike and Danielle for having their Dexters Inn wedding selected for publication on WeddingWire! We are always psyched to see our Bride’s & Groom’s published!
About Dexter’s Inn
A Dexters Inn Wedding are a special country resort-inn in the lovely and unhurried Lake Sunapee region. A hilltop location, which features panoramic views of Mount Kearsarge, Mount Sunapee and the surrounding countryside will certainly provide a private & peaceful backdrop for any wedding or event!
The First Look
Mike and Danielle did a “First Look” at the Gazebo / Bandstand area near Sunapee Harbor. We are big fans of First Looks, how can you not be when they result in a more relaxed wedding with amazing pictures! Mike and Danielle had a moment to relax during their busy day and enjoy some time together at the Gazebo!
Creating bridal portraits has been a love of mine since we started exclusive wedding photography. I am so blessed to meet a lot of wonderful women and being able to capture their beauty. We always suggest that our brides set some time aside during preparation for images of themselves alone. These unforgettable moments are preserved for years to come for your children, grand children and generations to come!
When I was growing up I used to flip through the pages of my Mom’s wedding album and adore her bridal images, her beauty and her warmth that shined from within. That’s how I will always remember my Mom! We dedicate this blog to all the wonderful women who chose us to preserve these unique memories and many more women we will meet in the future!
There is nothing more elegant than a beautiful Andover Country Club Wedding! Haley & Sam tied the knot at this amazing venue! What makes the Andover Country Club so special? This venue offers spectacular views of the golf course, along with a staff that’s focused on every small detail of your wedding day. Most of all, the layout is perfect with a large bridal suite located on the main floor with plenty of spacious rooms upstairs.
Haley and Sam chose a First Look, which opened their entire day for great pictures and a relaxed timeline. It’s no secret that Lana & I love First Looks! The grounds at Andover Country Club offer plenty of options for a private First Look. We selected the Gazebo area where the Spring flowers started to make their appearance! After the First Look and Bridal Party shots, we had plenty of time to relax before the ceremony and capture some Family Portraits. After the ceremony, the Newlyweds had time to join their cocktail hour and mingle with friends & family!
Then the party got rolling. Some great toasts by the best man & maid of honor, followed by dinner, dancing, and a photo booth made for lots of fun and action! We always encourage our bride and groom to capture a “night shot” towards the end of the evening. Besides being super cool and dramatic, they make for a nice touch in wedding albums. It sounds easy, but the end of the night can get very hectic. Carving out 10 minutes can be difficult. Haley & Sam were troopers and they found the time to capture some really nice shots in front of the country club!
Congratulations again to Haley & Sam, your Andover Country Club Wedding was one amazing night! Please enjoy this “Sneak Peak” of your wedding photos!
