Melisa and Michael Engagement, Wedding, and Trash the Dress!

This wonderful couple represents a lot of firsts for us. It's the first Trash the Dress session we've ever done. For those unfamiliar, a Trash the Dress (TTD) is where, after the wedding, the bride and groom get dressed up in their wedding finery and meet us in a place that would be unlikely for a newlywed couple to be to get some cool images. Sometimes it's rolling around in the ocean. Sometimes it's playing in the mud in a swamp. In this case, it was the carnival! We followed Melisa and Michael as they went on the rides, got cotton candy, threw balls at bottles, rang bells with hammers, made out in the ticket booth, etc. all the while being stared at by the people at the fair. Strangers kept asking us if they were really married, and if they could take a picture with their cell phones! It was such a blast.

It was also the first wedding album I've made where I incorporated text into the design. Melisa and Michael wanted their vows and some cool quotes interspersed. I usually include a photograph of the vows but have never actually used text in the design. I'm very happy with it and plan to do more of this in the future.

This is also the first time we've done multiple sessions in one album. Melisa and Michael wanted the engagement session, wedding, and TTD to be one story.

We had so much fun with Melisa and Michael... we're trying to invent new ways to photograph them. I want to go the carnival every couple of weeks or so :)

HERE'S a link to the album I made them.

Daniela & Gino Engagement

So we did a little trespassing. We were asked politely not to try jumping off a broken TV to try to pull down a fire escape ladder so we could get some cool pictures against a neato building in the North End.

But we had a great time anyway and caught that golden evening sun.

I hope these images show just how cool and in love Daniela and Gino are. Because they are.

HERE'S an album I put together for them.

Sue and Eben Engagement

We walked around the North Eastern campus, where Sue and Eben met and then wondered through Boston a little. We had a great time photographing this beautiful couple. Super relaxed, casual, cool... in love. :)

HERE'S the album I made for them.

Chelsea & Jeff Engagement

We went to Cogshall Park in Fitchburg for Chelsea and Jeff's engagement shoot. It is a beautiful pond surrounded by dense woods with cool rocks to climb and snapping turtles to snap...

They brought their gorgeous dog who is a Lab-Weimaraner mix- so cool! Now I know why Wegman photographs these dogs. They are stunning to behold.

As are this lovely dog's owners. I'm so happy with these images!

HERE'S the engagement album I made for them.

Sandrine and Matt Engagement

We had a lovely time walking around Boston with Sandrine and Matt. They were serious, they were silly. They were cool... they were hot. :)
And we ended the night with creme brule! And that's the best way to end the night.
