Lexi Photography » Candid :: Real :: Emotional

Erika and Mike are two of the most beautiful souls I have ever met, inside and out they just shine love and joy on everyone they come in contact with. Having met these two before their wedding I can assure you that this is what they are like each and every day of their lives too…not just on their wedding day. Every moment of this day was inclusive of the friends and family they had invited to be a part of their day—and even extended to me and Chris, we felt very lucky to be there photographing Erika and Mike! I can’t even begin to express the love, laughter, joy, and emotion that this day held…but I think we captured it pretty well. :) Looking through these photos to choose for the blog I was overcome with happiness and I hope you feel the same way when you look at them. I can go on and on about how perfect this day was but I think I’ll just let the photos tell the story—they can do it better than I ever could.

Favorite Things:

• Erika has a very natural and bohemian style and her unique Vera Wang gown was light and airy and a perfect addition
• Flowers in the hair…always a favorite for me. :)
• Their first look moment may go down in history as my favorite ever! Just please take a moment to notice Mike’s complete unabashed reaction and emotion. Big (HUGE) love right there! <3
• The constant cuddling and love that these two showed made it more than easy to photograph


Last but not least…I adore you two!

  • Sarah Hornung - Erika & Mike… Amazing photos!!! I am in love with them. The first look photos are so sweet. Xoxo

  • Julia Eager - Beautiful pictures to match the even more beautiful couple!


What happens when you mix the energy and fun of Canobie Lake Park with a couple that is used to performing on stage? Yes, you get a little spark of awesomeness. Lexi and Nick met when she was auditioning to be in a summer play that Nick was directing (Romeo & Juliet, no less) and even though neither one of them was Romeo or Juliet, it appeared that there was still some romance that ensued. :) As I said earlier, I thought it might be weird to photograph someone with my same name but as it turns out Lexi is awesome (obviously it’s in the name) and Nick is incredibly sweet so this was a great shoot. These two are getting married in the winter and I’m so sad that I won’t be able to photograph their wedding but I was happy to be able to photograph their super fun engagement shoot! I know that Lexi is patiently awaiting these photos so I’ll get right to the photos.

Favorite Moments:

• When we arrived we were ushered into the park and even allowed to shut down rides just so these two could get photos—clearly Lexi had some connections. :)
• I love when a couple is willing to have fun during their engagement session and Lexi and Nick are most definitely fun!
• The light at the end of the evening was to die for—and I got a ferris wheel ride out of the deal…we all know how I love the ferris wheel.



Wow…where to begin? I loved so much about this wedding it is kind of silly. The light, the calmness, the smiles, the laughter, the expansive lawn, the hidden gardens, the amazing couple. Yeah, there wasn’t much I didn’t like. :) Erin and Dave were married on a stunning day in Waterford, CT. Their wedding was held at the Eolia Mansion, which is a location to die for…really, you’ll see! I felt like at every turn there was the most picturesque location for a photo, and combine that with this adorable couple and I was one very happy photographer. These two are adorable together—Dave is, maybe, just a little camera shy but he looked so darn dapper on the wedding day (big love to a great grey suit) and Erin is such a classic beauty and the camera loves her so every time I photographed them I smiled. :) I’ve known these two for a while. Dave is Kim’s brother (so you may just see Kim and Rich in the wedding party as well) and it was an honor to be both the photographer and a guest at this fabulous wedding.

I know I’ve said this before but I’ll say it again. I love every wedding I photograph and I truly feel like the luckiest photographer because I continually attract the most amazing couples but it is the highest honor when my friends trust me to capture their day and, Erin & Dave, you two did not let me down. I can’t even begin to tell you how much fun Chris and I had and I hope you like the sneak peek!

Favorite Things:
• The sun kept peeking in and out of the clouds the entire day making the light so pretty!
• Erin and Dave were married outside on the lawn…I adore an outdoor wedding
• During their first look Dave was reaching back for Erin and she was smiling and laughing the whole way…<3 • There were several small moments between Erin and her dad...I loved every one of them! • Forehead kisses. I just really like forehead kisses. :)Untitled-1Untitled-3Untitled-4erin_dave_113-2erin_dave_181erin_dave_234erin_dave_237-2Untitled-6erin_dave_204Untitled-15LDP_7749erin_dave_279Untitled-7erin_dave_301erin_dave_294LDP_7934BWerin_dave_315-2LDP_7973Untitled-5Untitled-9erin_dave_573Untitled-8erin_dave_507Untitled-10LDP_1282LDP_1314erin_dave_502-2erin_dave_512Untitled-11erin_dave_530erin_dave_540erin_dave_550Untitled-12Untitled-13Untitled-14
