Kristin and Alicia – Old Sturbridge Love
I hadn't met Kristin and Alicia prior to their engagement shoot as they live quite a distance away, and our schedules never seemed to line up. When the time finally came to meet up, we embarked on an engagement shoot, IN OLD STURBRIDGE VILLAGE! Now I hadn't been to the village since I was in middle school, so of course I was super excited to get the chance to go back! And boy did it pay off, such a great grounds for a shoot! Now enough about how much fun I had, lets talk about how much fun Kristin and Alicia are. You may notice that many of the photos you will see below, are photos of them laughing. I couldn't tell you how much fun and love I ...

Luke and Kara – Mystic Engagement
I made a long trip down to Mystic, Connecticut for the engagement shoot of Luke and Kara. It was well worth the trip, not only for these beautiful photos, but for the laughs! My goodness these two perfect for each other! Sometimes, watching a couple, you just know. And the fact that there are plenty of photos with Luke having a goofy face and Kara laughing, only goes to prove it. I mean, I even have a photo of Luke flexing some muscles shortly after I asked him for a slightly more masculine stance. Seriously, I cannot wait for your wedding! We are going to have a blast!

Jody and Jamie – A Country Club Romance
Jody and Jamie reached out to me earlier this summer. We had met through a common hobby, off roading. This little fact made shooting their wedding even more fun. As I was taking pictures, a diesel truck whistled by, and I watched Jodys eyes look away from the camera and follow the truck down the street. Of course I had to laugh... and call him out on it! We spent some time in a beautiful park nearby their lovely country club wedding.  We even did something a little different and ended up do a "step and repeat" style set up at the end of the night to capture some great shots of the guests as they were heading home. It really could not have bee ...

Mike and Melissa Sottile at The Waterview
Mike and Melissa reached out to me to do their engagement shoot and wedding last year. We caught the very last autumn leaves left on the trees on an early morning. It was a fun shoot then, and it was awesome meeting these two, and becoming a part of their lives for forever. This wedding went straight to my heart. Watching Mike choke up during his vows, and Melissa's joy and laughter throughout the ceremony. Sometimes you just know when you are a part of something special. And this was one of those special ones... I want to say thank you Mike for his service. I remember during his best man's speech, everyone hooted and hollered for Mike feeli ...

The Wedding of Kyle and Cara
I was lucky enough to shoot the wedding of Kyle and Cara Kilroy. For those of you who don't know. Kyle has been my friend since I was all of 3 years old. This wedding was heartwarming and beautiful. When I watched Kyle shed some tears as his beautiful bride walked down the aisle, I had to do everything I could to stop myself from doing the same. Nothing makes me happier, than seeing one of my oldest friends this happy. When Kyle and Cara first approached me to shoot their wedding, I was hesitant, I was worried my feelings would get in the way, wanting nothing more than to share their special day with them. The more I thought about it, the mor ...

The Wedding of Steve and Karen Holcomb
When I met Steve and Karen last fall for their engagement shoot, I knew we were gonna have a blast. Seriously, we couldn't stop laughing the whole shoot. Their wedding, was no different. I felt right at home, (I even made it onto Moms fridge!). There's nothing more important to me, than being a part of someones wedding, as opposed to being a worker at a wedding. I think we definitely accomplished that this time. With a beautiful day, and a gorgeous location, I think the day could not have been any more perfect. Now as I began to upload these photos, I relived it all again. Took a lot of tough decision making to choose which ones to share beca ...
