Rachael & Matt chose the beautiful Crane Estate for their wedding earlier this fall. As the sun slowly set on the Grande Allée, surrounded by their family and friends, they said their vows.

I not so secretly love sunrise engagement sessions - there is just something magical about watching the sun rise above the horizon as soft, golden light blankets the earth. The air is quiet, the world is still, in short it is a peaceful way to start the day!! I was delighted that Hayley & James loved the idea of a sunrise session for their beach engagement. So on a warm summer morning we met at Good Harbor and enjoyed exploring the near empty beach together.Read More
Laney & Austin love being near the water, it’s their happy place. When it came to planning their engagement session we knew that it had to be a location on the water. One of my favorite places, both personally and as a photographer, is Crane Beach in Ipswich - a beautiful beach made of soft white sand and gorgeous green dunes. The stunning locale spoke to their ocean loving hearts and was the perfect backdrop of their summer engagement. Enjoy some of my favorites!!Read More
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…Read More
Overlooking the Mansion on Turner Hill, Maggie got ready at her parents’ home, a place filled with meaning and memories for the Bride. White puffy clouds filled the bright summer sky and the heat of the July warmed the air. It was a quintessential New England summer day, just what Maggie & Jack envisioned for their wedding (albeit maybe not the humidity)!! With a quick ride down the hill, Maggie and Jack where ready to start their celebration. With their ceremony held in the garden and their reception under the tent in the courtyard, it was a perfect event from start to finish. Enjoy some of my favorites!!Read More
The North Shore holds a special place in my heart so when I have the opportunity to photograph love in this beautiful place, it is a joy from start to finish.

It epitomizes all that makes the North Shore special : lobster traps and sailboats, the rocky shore and the charming cottages, it is quintessential New England.Read More
On a beautiful June evening, Molly & Eric gathered their closest family and friends to treat them to a quintessential Cape Ann experience for their rehearsal dinner at the Manchester by the Sea Yacht Club.

Family is everything to Willie & Joanne so when it came time to plan their wedding day they were sure to fill every moment with meaningful tributes to their loved ones. They married on the Cape - a place incredibly special to Joanne's family, at the Wianno Club. Joanne wore her grandmother's dress - the same dress that her Mom wore on her wedding day. Willie invited family from the Midwest to experience all the East Coast has to offer. Joanne shared a meaningful and heartfelt first look with her Dad. It was a joy to be there to capture it all!! Enjoy my favorites from the day below!!Read More
If there is one thing about New England that is predictable, is that weather in New England is completely unpredictable. Sunny one moment, rainy the next. And that's exactly what Mother Nature gave us on Genna & Max's wedding day. Off and on rain, mist and some incredibly beautiful fog. But despite the up and down of the weather, Genna and Max remained steady - both grounded in the happiness they shared to finally be at this moment together, their wedding day.
Married on Cape Cod, where they spend much time together as a couple and with family, Genna & Max were delighted to share this special place with their loved ones. They filled their day with nautical and classic details, a perfect compliment for their coastal New England celebration!! Enjoy some of my absolutely favorites from the day!!Read More
On a beautiful summer evening I met with Laura and Brendan for their engagement session in downtown Newburyport. The city bustled with people out enjoying the glorious evening. As the sun set it gave a pink hue to the sky and created the most romantic backdrop for these two lovebirds. Newburyport never disappoints and is one of my favorite places for engagement sessions.
Sweet, simple and joyful is how I would describe Laure & Brendan's relationship. They love to laugh together and never take things too seriously meaning that their session was full for smiles and lots of love. Oh and gelato, we cant forget the gelato!! I can't wait to celebrate with these two later this fall!!Read More

The past few years has seen a boom in past DZP couples growing their families -- and I LOVE it!! It's such a privilege to be invited into such a special time in a couple's life and help them celebrate the milestone of a new baby with photography!!
I was delighted when Molly emailed me earlier this year letting me know they were expecting (and due around the same time as me!) and that she wanted to celebrate the occasion with a portrait session. It feels like just yesterday we were celebrating Molly & Andrew's wedding day and here we were anticipating the arrival of their baby girl!! Congratulations you two, enjoy a few of my favorite images!!

It's hard to believe that another season is winding down to an end. Jessica and Sean were one of my last engagement sessions of the year and I could't have asked for a better couple to spend it with!! This sweet couple will be tying the knot next fall and they really wanted their engagement session to reflect this colorful time of year. And while the foliage wasn't the most spectacular, we managed to find a few pockets of brightly colored leaves!! Jessica & Sean chose Jamaica Pond where they spend much of their time together and where they have created many memories. I hope we were able to add another reason for them to love this part of the city!! Enjoy some of my fave images!!

I knew when I first met Tish & Obie for their engagement session this past spring I knew that their wedding would be one for the books!! And what a celebration it was, a perfect reflection of this sweet couple. Tish loves penguins and so it was only fitting that they get married at the Boston Aquarium in front of the penguin enclosure. Obie loves Star Wars and of course R2D2 stood in as their ring bearer. The day was filled with unique touches and lots of love for this adored couple. Enjoy some of my favorite images!Read More
It's hard to believe that Jennifer & Nate's wedding has come and gone!! It feels like just yesterday we wandering the harbor walk together for their engagement session and now I'm blogging their wedding!! These two love to have fun and their wedding day reflected their zest for life. Carefree, stylish and FUN would be the words I'd sue to describe their day. Oh and throw in a penguin or two ;) Jennifer and Nate chose the Boston Aquarium to host their day, a unique and entertaining experience for their guests who mingled amongst the fish and penguins during cocktail hour. They were given a beautiful fall day, the perfect weather!! It was a magical day for sure!! Enjoy some of my favorites from their wedding day!!Read More
Kaitlyn and Doug love being by the water -- a couple after my own heart!! She knew that she wanted her engagement session to have a romantic beachy vibe and gave me the opportunity to suggest a location. Of course I knew the perfect place, our favorite beach, Crane Beach in Ipswich!!
On an unseasonably warm (theme of the fall!) September evening we enjoyed a beautifully quiet session together on the beach. As the sky turned to a soft blue and pink hue Kaitlyn and Doug cuddled together, sand between their toes. It was such a joyful session and I can't wait to celebrate with them come next September when they tie the know!! Enjoy a few of my favorite images!!

Michelle & Steve welcomed the day with near perfect weather. While it seems like such a cliche thing to mention, when you live in New England and the weather can turn on a dime, you are ever so thankful when you are greeted with such a beautiful day as this the morning of a wedding. Greeted at the water with a warm breeze, Misselwood Estate provided the perfect location for Michelle & Steve's guests to enjoy this glorious New England fall day. The lawn at Misselwood provided guests with sweeping views of the harbor side as tiny sailboats dotted the horizon. The sun slowly set leaving behind a golden glow that set the feeling for cocktail hour. Paired with all the rose gold details a girl could dream of, this photographer was in heaven!!Read More
