How fitting is it that Ashley and I met when she was a bridesmaid in a couple of her friends’ weddings and now I’m photographing her wedding this coming summer?! These two are gorgeous and fun and lucky for me they also chose a beautiful backdrop for their winter engagement session. I Met up with Ashley & Dennis at a perfect New England farmhouse after a good snowfall that left us with a perfect crunchy backdrop (but it was the warmest day of January so we weren’t freezing). Yay! Add to that the perfect light, lots of smiles, and Ashley & Dennis’s absolutely adorable english bulldog, Rosie, and I was one very happy photog. :)

Favorite Things:

• Outfit changes that gave us a more dressed up look in a sightly more relaxed setting
• Rosie the bulldog, she kind of steals the show. ;)
• Getting Dennis to laugh is tough sometimes but lucky for me he kind of adores Ashley so it wasn’t as hard as I thought. :)

After several cloudy weddings I was in need of some sunshine and Chessie & Scott gave me just that. Beyond Chessie’s bright and shining personality (I believe the best man described her as “arguable the most social person ever”) we also got the most perfectly sunny and beautiful fall day. The leaves were changing colors but the sunshine was crisp and the grass was bright green and overall the day was just perfect for photographing…oh…and for getting married. :) Chessie and Scott celebrated their reception at the stunning Wentworth By The Sea Hotel in Rye, NH and we had the perfect mix of outdoor photos and a beautiful indoor ballroom. Between Chessie’s gorgeous dress with that stunning illusion neckline, the girls berry-colored dresses, the guys classic black tuxes, and the amazing fall bouquets I couldn’t stop taking photos of this group! I know Chessie is waiting on these so let’s get to the photos!

Favorite Things:

• That illusion neckline, I love a dress with sleeves and this one was gorgeous!
• The light on this day…you all know I’m a sucker for this kind of incredible backlight
• Stella…she was the happiest flower girl ever!

This was an absolutely perfect evening for an engagement shoot. Gabby and Greg originally chose an October date hoping for some fall weather, but as we know this has been the warmest October on record…ever…so I think it was in the high seventies when we had this shoot. I do love the North End and it was a perfect backdrop for these two. We started at Christopher Columbus park and walked through the outskirts of the north end by the water and they could not stop smiling. I think gabby could, possibly, have one of my favorite laughs in the history of laughs. You’ll see what I mean. :) Onto the photos!

Favorite Things:

• Gabby’s cream dress—we all know I love a good fit and flare dress ;)
• The way Greg made Gabby smile, whenever I meet a couple that laughs this much with each other I know I’m going to be one happy photographer
• That light! There is something about the way the light looks at the end of the day in the city. Big love!
