Trust has to be earned in the space between my side of the lens and those I photograph. I’ve reflected deeply on the privilege of photographing these moments while gearing up for this upcoming wedding season, and thinking more about how creating a safe space for vulnerability will allow for the building of trust quickly in those intimate moments. I’ll be spending time getting to know my couples better.
Emily and Jarrid held their beautiful Fall wedding at the Red Lion Inn in Cohasset. One of the elements I loved most about this wedding was the genuine connection between her and Jarrid. The two met online and had an immediate connection that continues to this day!
The couple wanted their wedding to be romantic, simply elegant, with lots of candlelight :) Mostly they wanted a big party for their favorite people without some of the traditional stuff that didn't feel authentic to them. When asked what one of Emily's favorite moments of the wedding was, she had this to say: "Walking down the aisle with my dad towards Jarrid. I wasn't someone that had my whole wedding day pictured when I was little but I always knew I wanted that moment. I was so aware of every second - every person I saw smiling at me with love, the music that was playing. I could literally feel my heart beating in my chest."
Thank you Emily and Jarrid, for sharing your beautiful day with me!
I had the opportunity to photograph a gorgeous Winter wedding at a private residence in Boston this past weekend, and it was so lovely! Here are just a few images I have been working on. Many more to come from Amy and Drew's ceremony as well as their Four Seasons Brunch the day after! I can't stop drooling over the bride's stunning Valentino dress!!
Remember this couple and their glorious beach wedding in Florida? Fast forward a couple of years, and here you have the lovely Mrs. Chang, plus one. Isn't she adorable?! I can't wait to photograph their little girl once she arrives! Melissa, thanks for letting me take you to a New England beach during the coldest winter on record and pretending like it was no big deal. I can always count on you for a good photo :)
