Lots and lots to share with you on this dreary Friday! Perhaps some lovely features will cheer up this gloomy mood?! As you might all know I LOVE wedding blogs and I love submitting the real engagements and weddings of my fabulous couples. Plain and simple, the easiest, fastest and most effective way of doing this is with Two Bright Lights. I could chat your ear off about submitting and getting published, but that's a post for another day. I'll just leave it at Two Bright Lights, signup and start submitting, it's definitely worth your investment! First up is Jared & Kristen's spring Fenway engagement on A Paper Proposal. Just looking these photos again made me yearn for warm sunny afternoons with the trees in bloom and a soft breeze blowing through my hair. Oh and for the start of baseball! Ack, winter. If you're feeling like I am, make sure to check out this feature. Draped in my warmest blanket and seven layers of clothes, if I concentrate just hard enough, I can almost picture us back there....almost. Thank you so much Sarah for featuring this lovely couple and for reminding me that spring is coming!

 

Borrowed & Bleu recently featured Debs & Alex's engagement session up in Ogunquit, Maine. The dramatic skies, dancing on the beach, dodging the rain and fun with ice cream, it's not to be missed! Thank you Borrowed & Bleu!!

What can I say about Diana? I'm so grateful I had the opportunity to work with her over this past year! I am also grateful that she allowed me the chance to work with Brian and Lisa! Everyone that worked together for this wedding all left feeling to privileged that we were able to do so. Diana does a much better job at expressing our collective gratitude so head on over to her blog and read more:) And if you were thinking about hiring a wedding planner, make sure to contact Diana, she is simply amazing at what she does!

Today is going to be an all out Brian and Lisa love fest BECAUSE I have two more amazing features showcasing their beautiful wedding! A few weeks ago, Diana sent out a surprise message that announced a feature she had been working on with the Union Leader. Brian and Lisa's wedding headed up the newspaper's bridal pullout with a BIG picture from their wedding day! I may have danced around the house when I found out. I'm not sure why I get so excited, I used to be published every. single. day. when I worked as a news photographer. But there is something different when you're a small business owner. I'm not going to lie, to see your hard work recognized is quite humbling and amazingly exciting. And no matter how big or small a feature may be, I am always excited and proud to see a client's wedding showcased in a public way!

When Seacoast Weddings contacted me to let me know they were going to use an image from Brian and Lisa's wedding, I just about fainted. A real wedding magazine! My first print feature! I probably couldn't have been more excited! I am like a proud mama, so excited for her clients and excited to have an image chosen to be published. Thank you so much Seacoast Weddings for helping me mark this milestone in my business! I couldn't be happier that I can cross this off my business bucket list with such a wonderful publication!

Thank you to all of the recent publications, online or in print that have featured the lovely couples I've had the privilege to work with this past year. And many, MANY, thanks to the wonderful couples who choose to put their trust in me to document such an important time in their life. Without your hard work and attention to detail none of these features would have been possible. These announcements are meaningless without my deepest heart felt gratitude towards you. You've helped make my dreams become reality. I can't imagine getting to work with better people and I'm so grateful to call you all friends. THANK YOU!

 

 

 

 

Featured: Style Me Pretty and Heart Love Weddings

Is it cheating if I include a recent blog feature starring my husband and I in this blog series?  No? Ok! Well then you won't mind as I gush for a few moments on the fact that our Love Recaptured anniversary session was recently featured on Style Me Pretty! Soon after our photographer Katelyn, shot the session she sent me a message saying that SMP had picked up the session to feature on their Massachusetts SMP blog. And then I proceeded to freak out, excitedly explaining to the hubster that we, us, me and him, were going to be on Style Me Pretty! It was so fun to be on the "bride" side of being featured, especially on such a prestigious wedding blog like Style Me Pretty. And looking back on this feature and our shoot, is such a great reminder that I married the best man. Ever! Check out the feature here!

Another wedding blog that I absolutely adore is Heart Love Weddings by blogger Alexandra Beauregard. I first heard of this blog when Alex randomly selected an image from Josiah and Allison's Love Recaptured session this past summer. I was stunned and honored that she chose to use one of my images! I immediately fell in love with her writing and her beautiful brand and I am so excited to work with her again on another upcoming feature:) Recently Alexandra featured Josiah and Allison's session in it's entirety, which you can see here.

I just had to include this image in this post. After featuring Josiah and Allison's session, Alexandra sent ME a thank you package with a note and some delicious candy. Shouldn't I be the one doing thanking?? It was such a delicious (hehe) surprise. What a great way to connect deeper with the photographers and vendors that you feature beyond just a thank you email! Plus now I am a fan for life!;) Thank you Alexandra!!

Recently I was talking with another industry peer about having your work featured on blogs. We chatted about blogs and how exciting it can be to see some of your favorite images on some of your favorite blogs. But even more important, we chatted about how excited we feel for each of our couples! They work so hard on planning each detail of their day. From the small to the big, these details are a labor of love for each of our couples. To see their hard work recognized and praised can be such a fantastic feeling to a bride. And to know that I've captured their labor of love, their wedding, in a way that truly describes each element of their day, is such a rewarding feeling as a photographer.

Recently several of my couple's weddings have been featured and I am really excited to share them with you here. You've probably already seen their wedding, but check out the features too! It's fun to see how another person sees that wedding differently. To all my couples who have been featured, congratulations! I'm so happy to see your hard work is continuing to bring joy to people well beyond the wedding day!

I was SO excited to see Debs & Alex's beautiful vineyard wedding featured on Elizabeth Anne Designs recently. Mod Cloth bridesmaids dresses, beautiful hydrangea bouquets and a ton of DIY reception details, it's a wedding not to be missed! You can check out the feature here.

Recently Abby and Devin's flower filled engagement session at the Arnold Arboretum was featured on Borrowed & Bleu. You can check out the feature, here.

John and Carisa's beautiful country club wedding was featured on DK Floral. You can check out the feature here and the original feature on Elizabeth Anne Designs, here.

Finally the amazing floral designs of K. Lilly Floral Design were featured on Blue Jeans or Black Tie, but albeit, not recently! You can view the feature here.
