Liliana + Naldo | Anniversary Session in Spohr Gardens | Cape Cod, MA

Cape Cod Photographer

Liliana + Naldo reached out in early summer to recreate a photo they had done at Spohr Gardens 5 years ago when they got married. This time, they wanted to include their beautiful 2 1/2 year old daughter, Hannah.

I was so touched by the idea, that I couldn’t wait to meet them. Liliana + Naldo were coming from San Francisco for a short vacation on the Cape. I had never been to Spohr Gardens. Let me just say, this place is like a fairy tale. It’s lush with greens, flowers, and reminded me of a secret garden. Definitely a beautiful place for an intimate wedding. I was so happy to be shooting their anniversary and family session with them there. It was truly special.

The original photo L+N wanted to recreate is by Kimberly Meserve, who is now located in Miami, Florida. Her image is the one the left, and my recreation with little Hannah is on the right… what do you think?! 🙂

Michaela + Kash Take Newport | Newport Wedding Photographer

For several months, Michaela and I went back and forth planning a New England beach shoot. But I had a vision to give the shoot a west coast vibe of cliffs, ocean breeze, and warm colors. Just a day before the shoot, we completely redesigned it around the Cliff Walk in Newport. The foggy weather gave us a clean and even light to work with, and the result is absolutely phenomenal. Overcast is a photographers best friend (write that down.)

When Andy and I are able to photograph things together, we just fall back in sync and make magic.

A special thank you to the always wonderful Michaela + Kash, who continue to bring their A-game and always trust our crazy (but fun!) ideas.

Jessica + Mike | Spring Portrait Session at WPI | Worcester, MA

A few years ago, when Andy and I moved to the area, we fell in love with the main entrance to the WPI campus. We were driving by and saw so much potential and couldn’t wait to shoot there. This year, we shot there twice (once in the winter) and again in May. The campus is stunning at any time of year, but when we arrived to shoot Jess and Mike’s spring portrait session, we were so excited to see the lush greens of Spring all around us.

Can I just say that Jessica has one of the best laughs around? Shooting this spring portrait session made me so happy. These two clearly have incredible chemistry. We walked around the campus together, Mike making Jessica laugh at every turn.

Ashley + Brad | Coffee Shop Date | Worcester, MA

Spring is in the air (and so is LOVE!)

We asked Ashley and Brad to meet with us at this adorable coffee shop in Worcester, Massachusetts called Birchtree Bread Company. It was the day before Easter, and the shop had so many folks bustling in and out of it that we opted to start their portrait session outside the mill in this adorable little plot that resembled a secret garden. Their were strung lights, a small rock wall, and some planters. The brick building made a gorgeous backdrop. Ashley and Brad were up for anything.

We made our way back inside. The Crompton Building is a gorgeous old mill that houses some pretty cool businesses. The hardwood floor inside is creaky. It just has that feel of someplace cozy. We walked into Birchtree and grabbed a booth. These two were so sweet and just nuzzled and enjoyed each other while we grabbed some sweet photos.

We decided to move things downtown by City Hall. There is nothing I enjoy photographing more than a couple in the city!
