Some cozy portraits of Roxanne at home, relaxed, unposed and natural. Just the way lifestyle photo sessions should be!
Jill and Gabe are childhood sweethearts… their parents lived up the street from each other (and still do!) and Gabe was good friends with Jill’s brother before they got together in high school. They’ve been inseparable ever since! Since their parents still live in their childhood homes in Plympton, they were able to get ready in the place where they grew up, which was so special for both of them. So many thoughtful details went into their day, from the hand-stitched heart that Jill’s aunt added to her wedding gown to the beautiful decor scattered lovingly throughout their historic venue - The Isaac Winslow House in Marshfield Massachusetts.
I was so grateful that Jill and Gabe invited me into their day, to celebrate a love spanning over 20 years and a lifetime of memories they have already been able to create together. I can’t wait to see what the future holds for you both!
As an adventurous portrait photographer, I’m always willing to explore my environment and push boundaries to get the shot. But with the way things are with ticks in these beautiful long grasses, I generally shy away from suggesting locations where deer ticks will be present and never pressure my subjects to risk exposure to tick bites. With that said, Nicole was in the mood to risk it and it was totally worth it for these ethereal portraits we were able to capture as the sun was setting over the field.
Jess grew up spending summers at her aunt's beach house on Cape Cod, and her love for the memories she has of this place radiated through the way she described how happy it made her. When I asked Jess what she was most excited about for her wedding day, she said that she couldn't wait to share this special beach with all of her friends and family.
A beach wedding is ALWAYS a beautiful thing, but I was in awe the entire day as I witnessed not the unconditional love Jess & Rob have for each other - but the joy and support and love that radiated from all of their friends and family. These people loved each others company so much, it was unavoidable! As a thunderstorm rolled in off the coast during cocktail hour, everyone pitched in to quickly secure the tent and there was never a moment where smiles couldn’t be seen all around you, even as rain pummeled the sides of the tent. Eventually, the skies cleared to reveal a beautiful sunset, but hardly anyone noticed because no one was waiting for the sun to shine again - they were too busy having fun.
Powder Point Bridge in Duxbury has a special place in my heart, so when Jillienne suggested we shoot her lifestyle portrait session there I was so excited! It was a beautiful, windy day. We explored the beach in her red truck, ran around barefoot and watched the tide coming in from the shore. Coastal beach sessions can be so much more than posing in front of the ocean, and places like Duxbury Beach offer so many alternative locations to take portraits. It’s safe to say that this is a top 10 spot for portrait sessions in Massachusetts!
Who says you have to wear white on your wedding day anyway?! I’ve collected a few of my favorite alternative wedding outfits to inspire you to think outside the box when planning your wedding. **Product photos are shown for example only and are not my own images!**
Feeling edgy? Why not rock a black vegan leather jacket over your wedding dress for a sophisticated look with a dash of rock n’ roll? This option is somehow timeless while adding a little something extra to your look that will definitely turn heads.
Bring on the Flower Power - a beautiful hand embroidered floral wedding dress is a one of a kind way to ensure you feel special on your big day. Coordinate pops of color into your dress that go with your flowers and other decor details for a little extra oomph!
Not a skirt person? How about rocking a pant suit for your nuptials? Think of all the activities you can accomplish! Jumping shots will be no problem with pants, and you can add a bold colorful blouse underneath to tie everything together beautifully.
If you spent more time in the thrift store than the department stores, you may want to consider opting for a vintage frock when you say I Do. Pick your favorite era and go from there! A 1970s look for boho brides, or 1950s for something even more retro can be a classy edition to your overall wedding theme.
What if you’re looking for something a bit more glam? Can’t go wrong with a white jumpsuit! Just make sure it’s comfortable so you can dance the night away.
