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

Geoff & Ashley’s Gloucester Cruiseport Wedding

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 at Prescott Park, Portsmouth NH

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!

Maggierose & Nick’s Flag Hill Wedding

Flag Hill Wedding

Lana & I love Flag Hill Winery & Distillery.  Why?  Well, there are a few reasons.

First, from a photography perspective, who wouldn’t love a backdrop of a beautiful vineyard with rows of grapes rolling up the hillside.  The grape vines create amazing scenery for any photo shoot.  The Wedding ceremony area is beautiful as well.  it’s tastefully decorated and takes full advantage of the vineyard.  The reception tent is located on the back of the main building and offers plenty of space for a large reception.  Really, calling it a “tent” doesn’t do the reception location justice because it’s really a three-season room!

Second, we love wine. The spirits at Flag Hill are truly New Hampshire products.  Every product produced by Flag Hill is special and of the highest quality.  Lana & I attended a few Flag Hill wine pairings and we were both very impressed!  Don’t think that New Hampshire can produce interesting wine?  Well, you need to check out this vineyard & distillery!

Third, the staff at Flag Hill is totally “white glove” service.  They do everything to make your wedding ceremony and reception truly memorable for you and your guests.  Everybody from the owner, the event coordinator and the staff are pleasant to deal with and really care about making your day great.  Lana and I shoot at plenty of venues, and Flag Hill is the top of our list for quality.

So when Nick and Maggierose asked us to shoot their wedding, we were thrilled!   Nick works at Flag Hill as the Vineyard Manager.  I first met Nick one evening at Flag Hill where he was talking about the process of starting a small personal vineyard.  He was loaded with information!  It was clear to me that Nick was quite serious and knowledgeable when it comes to growing grape vines!  The day I plant my own vines, I’ll definitely call Nick for a quick refresher course!

Here’s a small preview of their wedding photos.  It was our pleasure to photograph Nick & Maggierose’s wedding!

Spectacular Wachusett Mountain Wedding!

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!

Bridal Portraits just in time for Mother’s Day

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!

Haley & Sam’s Andover Country Club Wedding

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!
