Mount Hope Farm Wedding | Emily & Ricky

Emily & Ricky’s wedding day started with white, puffy clouds but by the time we arrived to their First Look things started to change. The sky turned a dark grey/blue and lightning cracked across the sky off in the distance. In between rain drops and claps of thunder Emily & Ricky braved the elements with smiles and laughter — enjoying every minute they spent together with their wedding party. By the time portraits were over, the skies opened up and a deluge of rain really began…

But despite the weather they were determined to embrace the day. For example, Emily really had wanted pictures down by the water front but the rain continued to pour down. Instead of giving up, Emily gladly picked up her dress, grabbed an umbrella and sipped on their signature cocktail waterside for portraits. Their guests enjoyed cocktail hour under the tent and then when the rain finally let up, they headed out onto the patio for one of the most incredible sunsets we have ever seen at a wedding. Truly, it’s not what happens on your wedding day - but the attitude you have that matters most.

It was a joy to celebrate alongside Emily & Ricky and I am thrilled to be sharing my favorite images from their incredible day — truly it was a honor to be a part of their celebration!!

Coastal New England Engagement Session

When I asked Josselyn & Matthew if they had any ideas of where they might like their engagement session, immediately the first place that came to their minds was their historic New England home. Filled with charm and gorgeous gardens surrounding the house, it was the perfect backdrop for this sweet couple. Josselyn also wanted to visit the beach, just minutes from their house, incorporating their love for the ocean. It was a joy to photograph this couple at their home, a place where they feel comfortable and themselves. I loved all the nooks we had to explore and their beautifully wood and private lot. These two will be tying the knot in just a few short weeks -- until then enjoy some of my favorite images from their session!!

Autumn Family Portraits in New England

Almost every year since 2012 I've had the honor of photographing Aubrey and her sweet family. Aubrey and I met via the wedding industry years ago. Today were running photography businesses and raising families. Aubrey's friendship has been such an encouragement to me as we navigate life in this unique world of wedding photography and motherhood. 

I have loved being able to photograph their beautiful family over the years. Watching Max grow into a handsome young man and become a big brother has been oh-so-sweet. My hope is that their images will become treasured family heirlooms, documenting the exciting journey their family has been and continues to be on. 

Aubrey, thank you for trusting me to capture your family each year, it has been a joy to photograph your life together!! Enjoy your images!!

Island Living on Nantucket

It has been a dream of mine to visit Nantucket Island. I've lived in Massachusetts my whole life and yet had never visited this coastal oasis. When our good friends shared they would visit the East Coast in May we decided now would be the perfect time to make the trek to Nantucket!

I wasn't prepared for just how perfect Nantucket would be. Grey shuttered houses, creeping rose vines, white picket fences. It was almost more than my nautical New England loving heart could handle. If you are a fan of history, timeless style and that welcoming charm New England is famous for, then Nantucket needs to be at the top of your travel list.
