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.
When I asked Steph how we should document the way she and Jack spend their weekends together, she excitedly suggested they spend time cuddled up with blankets reading on their porch. The porch off of their 2nd floor apartment is screened in and directly adjacent to the kitchen, so sometimes they will jump through the window instead of the door to serve each other beverages! Needless to say this made for some very sweet and comical photos.
After spending a good 30 minutes on the porch, we popped inside to wash dishes and have some tea together. It was the perfect mix of casual and intimate that makes these at-home couples photography sessions so great!
At the end of the day, we’re all having so much fun together it can be hard to call it. Jack very patiently dealt with me announcing the shoot was over 3 separate times and then immediately having another idea I wanted to try. I find so much inspiration in the every day moments, and when I’m on a roll there’s no stopping me!
Steph’s favorite photo from their session is the image of Jack stirring her mug of tea. it was a completely unprompted, quick little moment that encapsulated their relationship perfectly. I always love to hear which images move my clients most.
Kyra is a fellow photographer so we spent some time during her session experimenting with some ideas I’ve had brewing for awhile now!!! Love it when my subjects are down to get creative and try something new and different. Also LOOK AT HER EYES!!! Like could they be any more spectacular? The answer is no, no they could not.
Nothing like some good foliage portraits to make me miss fall.
