Taylor + Craig | A Summer Engagement Session | Maudslay State Park | Newburyport, Massachusetts

Summer is here, friends!! It was a hooooooot session.

Katie + Brian | An Early Summer Engagement Session | Salem Willows | Salem, Massachusetts

Salem willows is a beautiful location, but boy oh boy was it jam packed on the day we had Katie and Brian's engagement shoot!! I remember, probably four years ago, I was making my way to Salem during the Halloween season and I briefly drove by this little strip not knowing the area at all! …

It's been a long two months for Erica and Zach, and let me tell you. For everyone facing a postponement of their wedding... well, the process isn't for the faint heart.

I am so thrilled that these two finally had their engagement session! And sorry guys, but this is a lengthy one! I know Cori and Bank because Cori is one of my sister Rachael's best friends!!

Anita + Mike | A South Boston Engagement Session | Sullivan’s Castle Island | Boston, Massachusetts

Through all of the wild things going on in the world, it was SO refreshing to get out and photograph Mike and Anita's engagement session!!! For having been to Boston many times, and being a New England girl almost my entire life, it was weird for me to realize that I have never been to …

Wade + Penny | A Harry Potter & Star Wars Inspired Wedding | Gilbert, Arizona

I did it, guys!! I traveled beyond the East Coast for a wedding!!! I've always said.. if I can do just one wedding across country, that would be enough for me by the end of my career as a wedding photographer. But, I am hoping that the opportunity I received to serve Wade and Penny …

Alexis + Casey | A Winter Engagement Session | Downtown | Portsmouth, New Hampshire

Can I really call this a Winter engagement session? It was mild compared to the session I shot in this very same location just the week before... the snow was literally 90% gone with just hints of leftovers here and there, and it felt more like Spring than anything. So was it realllllyyy a Winter …

Dot + Eddy | A Winter Engagement Session | Prescott Park | Portsmouth, New Hampshire

Winter can be challenging when it comes to photos. More so because we don't want to freeze to death while out getting all the angles, and one day it's a mild 40*, the next it's -7* with windchill. We had originally planned to meet on a Friday but I knew as soon as I went …

Nikki + Meghan | A Simply Joyous and Classy Wedding | Harrington Farm | Princeton, Massachusetts

Starting the New Year photographing Nikki + Meghan's wedding was a dream come true in so many ways! I first met them at one of my weddings I photographed last year (shoutout to Lacey + Travis!) and post wedding, I got an email from Nikki asking if I would be available for their big day …

Sondra + Michael | A Fall Wedding | Barker Tavern | Scituate, Massachusetts

The peak of Fall has officially come and gone, and though it was chilly and there were not many leaves left lingering, and with a hint of winter air, Mike and Sondra's fall inspired wedding was perfect! Their day, like many others I find, came up quick! Before I knew it, November 2nd was staring …

Corrie + Derek | A Coral And Beach Inspired Wedding | PITA Hall | Newbury, Massachusetts

Corrie and Derek are an incredible time, and I can't believe that their wedding day has already come and gone!! I feel like I was just meeting with them over some beers in Seabrook when they made the decision to have me photograph their wedding! I think the first time I realized how fun they …

Lacey + Travis | An Early Summer Wedding in Shirley, Massachusetts | The Bull Run Restaurant

When I first had my consultation with Lacey to talk about all her wedding details, I knew she was going to be one of the most laid back brides ever. She was so easy going! For good reason, most brides I find are somewhat stressed and anxious about the whole planning process. But, Lacey seemed …

I am so excited to share this gallery!! I first met Jessica and Jonathan when they scheduled their family portrait session last July during one of the hottest days of the summer!

Angela + Sean: A Boston Skyline and Oceanside Wedding in Nahant, Massachusetts | Oceanview of Nahant

I got a phone call last summer from a number I didn't recognize. I never ever receive phone inquiries regarding my pricing and collections for weddings, but this was my very first one!! Not knowing who it was, I answered instead of letting it go to voicemail. What was a first time phone inquiry for …
