Boston & North Shore Wedding Photographer
the Beauty of Connection
To create images that will serve as a family’s history, honoring what was and celebrating what is to come.
I always believed that I would grow up following a not so typical path. When I was little I dreamed of owning a restaurant, being a veterinarian, or becoming a famous Broadway star. My mind was always filled with ideas and things I wanted to be. That was until I picked up a camera...
We believe in the power of family, building beautiful and sacred marriages and celebrating the connections that make us who we are.

It was a such a pleasure creating this beautiful album for Kerin & Ryan of their gorgeous Newport wedding from this past summer. Kerin chose the Signature Album, featuring a soft linen cover and lay flat design. The design, the cover materials and image choices paired together perfectly to showcase their seaside inspired wedding day. Take a peek inside :
Today is a classic New England snow day!! With the snow coming in we're hunkered down with cookies baked, the fireplace roaring and hot cocoa ready to go. It's also the perfect day to share Pat & Liz's cozy and cuddly family session from earlier this January. You may remember these two from their beautiful summer wedding at Curtis farm almost five years ago!! It hard to believe that!! I still remember their incredible day and I feel so lucky to have been invited to photograph the next phase of their lives together!!
If you haven't guessed, New England is cold during the winter months so when it came time for locations for a newborn session, home seemed like the best choice. Liz and Pat's home is beautifully decorated with thoughtful touches throughout, especially the nursery. It was the perfect backdrop!! We spent a lovely morning together, reminiscing and admiring their sweet, adorable baby boy.
Pat and Liz are the perfect clients -- they trusted me with whatever suggestions I had to make this session meaningful. I was able to stretch my creative muscles shooting part of the session on film. That combination of freedom of creativity and a trusting relationship with my clients sets my artistic soul ablaze. Thank you Pat & Liz, enjoy some of my favorite images!!

On a COLD wintry evening, the brave Kristen & Kyle agreed to trudge through freshly fallen snow -- Kristen wanted a winter wonderland type feel and I knew just the spot!! Located on Boston's North Shore but what felt like the middle of no where, my not so secret location was perfect. With hardly anyone in sight the snow was magical, the light was beautiful. I'm so grateful we had the opportunity to celebrate our dear friends and the new life they are eagerly awaiting to meet. Though it was frigid, Kyle & Kristen were troopers and we were able to create some beautiful images to share with their little one someday!!

Today marks the end of a month long planning series to help couples plan and prepare for the big day. We've covered topics ranging from family formals to flowers, first look to getting ready. Let's pretend then that you're married, the planning is over -- now what? Today I'm sharing a few ideas on what do with all the images you've now received.
I know that the tendency following the wedding day can be to access your images, download them to your computer, maybe upload them to social media and then nothing. You're busy, life moves on and nothing becomes of your images other than pixels on a screen. But these are your memories and a representation of the legacy you are creating together. I believe strongly that your images deserve to be preserved and curated into tangible heirlooms, to be enjoyed, shared with loved ones.
Here are just a few ideas on what do with your images following the wedding day :
As we near the end of a month long blog series created to help couples plan and prepare for the wedding day, I thought it would be lovely to hear from past DZP couples!!

They are sharing their best tips for those who are in the planning stages and they have some great advice to share!! Read on to gather your own nuggets of wisdom to apply to your wedding planning and wedding day. Take it away DZP pros!!
The Reception is your time to let loose and celebrate!! It is important to thoughtfully plan out this part of the day and your DJ, caterer and venue coordinator will help walk you through how to best plan for the evening. As you bring together details with your team, there are several things to keep in mind as you map out the night’s festivities. In today's DZP Planning Series I'm sharing my favorite tips to help you plan the perfect reception.
I relish any opportunity to visit Texas so when my dear friend Amy asked if I'd travel west to photograph their darling family I jumped at the chance!! On a very foggy afternoon we headed into Austin to visit beautiful Laguna Gloria. It's an eclectic mix of Texas charm and Mediterranean flair -- I had to keep reminding myself we weren't on the Italian coast!! I could have stayed in their lovely gardens all day, filled with Spanish moss, ferns and palm trees. We roamed the property and spent a glorious time together. What's more romantic than a floral crown, a flowy pink dress and Spanish moss?! Extra exciting bonus? I did a hybrid of film & digital for their session!!

It's no secret that I love flowers -- they bring me so much joy!! If I could live in a house made of flowers, I probably would ;). While my love of all things floral may skew my opinions in some ways (bigger is always better!), what remains true is that your wedding florals will make a huge impact throughout your day. Your florals will be one of the most photographed items on the wedding day and included in almost all of your images. Careful thought and attention should be paid to the style, look and feel of your flower choices.
*Tip : Your florist will be your BEST resource in figuring out how to choose and display the right florals for your day. Scroll down below to discover some of my favorite florist designers.
In the fourth post of the DZP Wedding Planning Series, we'll be chatting about to plan stress free family formals. The success of family formals on the wedding day is in the planning. Often, the idea of photographing grouping after grouping can seem overwhelming, to you, your family and your photographer. While it may seem like this is an easy and quick part of the wedding day -- when you are working with larger groups of people things can quickly become confusing, complicated and down right stressful. Today I'll be sharing my best tips on how to make this time with your loved ones, easy, stress free and enjoyable.
