Ocean View Inn Wedding :: Boston Wedding Photographer :: Beverly & Rob
Beverly and Rob were married last weekend at the stunning Ocean View Inn in Gloucester—I adore an old Victorian by the ocean:) This was an especially important wedding to me because Beverly and I actually knew each other as children. Our dads have worked together for our entire lives, or almost our entire lives, and so we used to play in the office sometimes as kids. Come a couple of decades later, Beverly found my site and contacted me entirely unknowing that I was the same Lexi she knew from years ago (my last name is different after all). So it was quite funny that she found my site, out of all the photographer’s sites to find, and contacted me.
So when the wedding day came I was determined to get her great shots. Now, of course, I am always determined to get great shots (otherwise what would I be doing as a wedding photographer) but when I know someone and they know my whole family it puts a little—alright, alright…a LOT of—extra pressure on me:) And to top it all off, it was pouring on their wedding day making me work extra hard for the fab shots I got and challenged me even that much more. I’d be lying if I told you I was the picture of calm on this particular wedding day but I do love a challenge and I love when I get such a great couple, a fun bridal party, and wonderful families to make my job just that much easier. So now you have to check out the shots!
I have lots of great details. I love the suites at the Ocean View and Bev’s gorgeous Paloma Blanca gown was already hanging for me when I arrived:)
My second shooter for this day was miss Samantha Melanson and she did an amazing job with the guys shots—some of my very favorite to date! I love the shoe shot and the mirror image is great too!
One of my favorite things about having a second shooter is getting a completely different view on the day and Samantha did just that. I love this shot so much because this is an angle, and a style, that I would never shoot and it is fabulous!
And they danced out of the ceremony to “Marry you” originally performed on the TV series Glee! I realize that not every couple I photograph is going to do this, but I definitely wouldn’t protest…teehee:) I LOVE this series!!!
It was about here that Samantha said to me “I noticed you didn’t really care if your camera got wet, so I stopped holding the umbrella over you.” Truer words have never been spoken. If it rains on your wedding day…rock it! Because I certainly don’t care about getting a little rain on me—so laugh, love each other, and enjoy the day, whatever it may bring you:)
