Amy+Matt | Engagement Session

A couple weeks we spent some time with Amy+Matt at Lynch Park in Beverly, MA.  We can’t wait for Amy & Matt’s wedding next April.  I’ve known Amy for many years now, I’d have to sit here and count on my fingers and toes. It’s probably close to 20 years (Alicia can you verify that!) She is one of my best friends younger sisters.  I am also proud to say I was Amy’s RA at SSC.  I kept a close eye on her during her freshman year of college! Over the years Amy has become just as much a part of our family as her sister Alicia.  Our kids, Prue and Beck love Amy and Matt just as much as we do.  I know I’ll be wiping away the tears while shooting their wedding (All happy tears of course).

Enjoy some of our favorites from their session!  It was a nice trip back to the North Shore. Andrew and I met at Salem State (now university) so we have many memories of Lynch Park from our college days.  Amy+Matt-Lynch Park Beverly_0001 Amy+Matt-Lynch Park Beverly_0002 Amy+Matt-Lynch Park Beverly_0003 Amy+Matt-Lynch Park Beverly_0004 Amy+Matt-Lynch Park Beverly_0005 Amy+Matt-Lynch Park Beverly_0006 Amy+Matt-Lynch Park Beverly_0007 Amy+Matt-Lynch Park Beverly_0008 Amy+Matt-Lynch Park Beverly_0009 Amy+Matt-Lynch Park Beverly_0010 Amy+Matt-Lynch Park Beverly_0011 Amy+Matt-Lynch Park Beverly_0012 Amy+Matt-Lynch Park Beverly_0013 Amy+Matt-Lynch Park Beverly_0014 Amy+Matt-Lynch Park Beverly_0015 Amy+Matt-Lynch Park Beverly_0016 Amy+Matt-Lynch Park Beverly_0017 Amy+Matt-Lynch Park Beverly_0018 Amy+Matt-Lynch Park Beverly_0019 Amy+Matt-Lynch Park Beverly_0020 Amy+Matt-Lynch Park Beverly_0021 Amy+Matt-Lynch Park Beverly_0022 Amy+Matt-Lynch Park Beverly_0023

Meghan+Matthew | Salem Waterfront Hotel | Wedding

We spent a sunny day in March with this sweet couple in Salem, MA (Where Andrew and I met when we were both at Salem State).  We love the chance to shoot in Salem as there are so many lovely venues in the area.  This wedding the ceremony was at the Immaculate Conception Church with the reception just a quick walk at the Salem Waterfront Hotel.  Below are some of our favorite images from the day!

meg+matt_0001 It was a lovely day in March, not too chilly, so the girls walked from the hotel to the church.  meg+matt_0002 meg+matt_0003 While waiting for the ceremony to start one of the flower girls (who was Meghan’s niece) was a little pouty.  I thought it was a cute moment.  The bride was telling her that she couldn’t wait for her wedding day so she could pay her back and be pouty.  meg+matt_0004 meg+matt_0061meg+matt_0005meg+matt_0006 meg+matt_0007meg+matt_0008I absolutely love this image from the ceremony.  Immaculate Conception is such a pretty church, very light and airy.

meg+matt_0088Thank you so much for letting us capture your wedding day!  It was a day filled with love and you are such a sweet couple.  We wish you many years of happiness together.

Meghan+Matthew | Engagement Session | Chelmsford MA

We are excited for Meghan and Matt’s wedding this weekend, taking place in our college stomping grounds (where Andrew and I met), Salem MA.  I met up with Meghan and Matt last week to do a fun take on an engagement session.  We met at the town hall in Chelmsford when they were picking up their marriage license.  It was of course a super chilly day, within a week of mild weather.  We took advantage of the great light in the stairwell at town hall and then they bravely posed outside for a few shots.  I kept telling them, since it is so chilly today, it means we’ll have better wedding on your wedding day!  It looks like that will be the case with less then a week till their wedding (but you can never tell how quickly the weather can change in New England).

Enjoy some of our favorites from their session!
