Styled Shoot | Chantilly Place, Sirena Style, Floral Arts & Mr+Mrs Drew Photography

It’s been a long time coming, but here is the full blog post from our summer styled shoot.  A special thanks to the vendors involved, we couldn’t have done it without all your hardwork.  The dresses and accessories were all from Chantilly Place, the hair and makeup was done by Sirena Style, flowers by Floral Arts.  Also a big thanks to our models Chelsea & Kayleigh!  We had a great time working with all these amazing vendors and can’t wait for the next one…that reminds me, we need to start planning one!!  We went classic for this shoot, we wanted to keep it timeless.

We started the shoot off with some details while Sirena was doing her thing with hair and makeup.

summer style shoot_0001 summer style shoot_0002 summer style shoot_0003 Sirena set up shop right at Chantilly Place, doing the models hair and makeup in the bridal room at the shop.  summer style shoot_0004 summer style shoot_0005 summer style shoot_0006 summer style shoot_0007 summer style shoot_0008 While Sirena was finishing up on our model Kayleigh, we started shooting with Chelsea.  We took advantage of the beautiful locations right outside Chantilly Place.  There is a small brook that goes right behind the shop.  summer style shoot_0009 summer style shoot_0010 summer style shoot_0011 summer style shoot_0012 summer style shoot_0013 summer style shoot_0014 I LOVE LOVE LOVE the look of the birdcage veil and flower, which is a custom created headpiece available at Chantilly Place.  I also love the big bold earrings.  summer style shoot_0015 summer style shoot_0016 summer style shoot_0017 summer style shoot_0018 summer style shoot_0019This shot shows off the amazing makeup Sirena did on Chelsea.  Don’t be afraid of a little smokey eye for your wedding day look.
summer style shoot_0020 summer style shoot_0021 We snuck up to the lot behind us and decided to have some fun with the trucks.  summer style shoot_0022 summer style shoot_0023After Sirena was done with Kayleigh we headed to the park just around the corner from the shop.  It’s an adorable little hidden gem tucked right in the center of Chelmsford.
summer style shoot_0024 summer style shoot_0025summer style shoot_0026 summer style shoot_0027 summer style shoot_0028 Such a pretty bridal look put together for the shoot.  This hairstyle is perfect for the bride who wants to wear her hair down, but still wants some volume in the front.  The headband worn in the front is the perfect finishing touch to this look. summer style shoot_0029 summer style shoot_0030 summer style shoot_0031 summer style shoot_0032 summer style shoot_0033 summer style shoot_0034 summer style shoot_0035 summer style shoot_0036 summer style shoot_0037 summer style shoot_0038 summer style shoot_0039 summer style shoot_0040Thanks again to everyone involved!  We had a great time working with everyone and can’t wait for the next one!!  Lot’s of love to all the vendors involved.

Abbie+Billy | Downtown Lowell | Engagement Session

Oh how we love Abbie and Billy!  They are such a cute couple and we love that they are artsy and fun.  We can’t wait for their Spring wedding at the Estate at Moraine Farm in Beverly.  It’s going to be a lovely day full of DIY touches for sure.

We spent a rainy day with these two in our city of Lowell.  We originally planned on shooting their session in Boston, but with the weather the way it was we decided to take advantage of a pause in the heavy rain and to shoot right in Lowell.  We LOVE LOVE LOVE shooting in Lowell, and not just because it means out commute time is 5 minutes.  It’s such an amazing city with so many cool locations to take advantage of.  So we grabbed some umbrellas and walked around with these two love birds.

Devens Common Center Wedding_0028

Carla+John | Devens Common Center Wedding

Carla and John celebrated their 1 year wedding anniversary this past October.  We posted some of their wedding on our facebook page but never did a full blog post.  Fall is always a crazy time of year with weddings and then squeezing portrait sessions in for the Holidays.   I figured now was as good a time as any to post their full blog post!

Carla and John were married at the Devens Common Center, in Devens MA.  It was a gorgeous fall day.  John and the guys got ready at Carla and John’s house.  Andrew spent the morning with them while I went to the see Carla and the bridesmaids getting ready at the hotel at the Devens Common Center.

Devens Common Center Wedding_0001 Carla made cute survival kits for the guys :)Devens Common Center Wedding_0002Drew got to drive to the venue with John.  I love these images from the drive.
Devens Common Center Wedding_0003 Carla had a fun colorful wedding.  Each bridesmaid wore different colored shoes and Carla had made ribbon wands for each of them. Devens Common Center Wedding_0004 Devens Common Center Wedding_0005 Devens Common Center Wedding_0006 Devens Common Center Wedding_0007 Devens Common Center Wedding_0008 Devens Common Center Wedding_0009 Devens Common Center Wedding_0010 Carla looking absolutely stunning!Devens Common Center Wedding_0011 Devens Common Center Wedding_0012 Devens Common Center Wedding_0013Devens Common Center Wedding_0015Devens Common Center Wedding_0016Devens Common Center Wedding_0017Devens Common Center Wedding_0018Devens Common Center Wedding_0019Devens Common Center Wedding_0020Devens Common Center Wedding_0014 Time for the first look.  Drew and John left the hotel before Carla and I.  We had found a location just down the road in Ayer.  It’s called the sweetheart memorial.  It’s right off Jackson Road.  It was a perfect location for the first look.  Devens Common Center Wedding_0021 Devens Common Center Wedding_0022 Love, love, love Carla’s bouquet.  A gorgeous fall mix of dahlias and zinnias.  Devens Common Center Wedding_0023 Devens Common Center Wedding_0024I just love this special moments during a first look.

After the ceremony we went back outside and captured some portraits with the wedding party!  The light was gorgeous and it was such a warm fall day.  We really lucked out.  Devens Common Center Wedding_0050 Devens Common Center Wedding_0051 Devens Common Center Wedding_0052 Devens Common Center Wedding_0053 Devens Common Center Wedding_0054 Devens Common Center Wedding_0055So many beautiful and amazingly colorful details for the wedding reception!

Catie+Mike | Smith Barn Wedding | Peabody, MA

We had the honor of shooting Catie+Mike’s wedding in September at the Smith Barn in Peabody MA.  We’ve shot at the Smith Barn a few years ago and were excited to shoot at this venue again.  We didn’t get to take full advantage of the venue last time we shot there due to it being in November and the ceremony happening at another location.  This time we explored all parts of the venue and enjoyed a very warm day in September!  We couldn’t have asked for better weather.

We started the day getting ready at the Holiday Inn in Peabody.  I love this hotel for weddings because the suites are huge with lots of space for everyone to get ready.

Kate+Dave | Winnetu Resort Wedding | Edgartown, Martha’s Vineyard

We had an amazing time celebrating with Kate Dave at the  Winnetu Resort in Edgartown. It was a gorgeous day at the end of September (you’d have thought it was a summer day). Kate kept mentioning how she planned a summer wedding in the fall :) Shooting on the beach is now my favorite thing to do, I’d make the trip to the vineyard to shoot at Winnetu any day! Kate and Dave, thank you, for having us join you on the vineyard we can’t wait till we have the chance to go back.

We started off the day at Kate’s parents house not too far from the resort. I’ve been waiting for the chance to bring a wedding gown outside so I jumped at the chance to use the yard at the house.

I can’t look at these photos and not start humming Alicia Key’s song Girl on Fire. Kate’s niece and bridesmaids were singing it at the top of their lungs while Kate was putting her dress on.

Kate and Dave opted for a first look which gave them the chance to enjoy the cocktail hour after the ceremony. We picked a spot in some open shade (because it was a gorgeous sunny day) and it gave just the two of them a chance to see each other and naturally interact. We love doing first looks because you see so much emotion when the couple sees each other for the first time.

Drew and I couldn’t fit so we ran down the resorts front lawn and followed a path to the beach. I’ve mentioned it already but I need to say it again. We’d love to shoot at the resort again. Shooting a wedding ceremony with bare feet in the sand is the best feeling ever.

The resort has this amazing bike contraption. I had to do some research, it’s called a Cobi Bike. We were told by the wedding cordinator that there are only a couple in existence, Google is another place you can find one.

I love the mother/son dance :)

Then the band opened up the floor for everyone to start dancing, and dance is what they did! I love a wedding where everyone is having a great time on the dance floor. You’ll usually find me (Amanda) dancing around with everyone!

Catie+Mike | Engagement Session | Wakefield MA

We are super excited for Catie & Mike’s wedding today (it’s technically today…I’m writing this at 12:13am).  We can’t wait to capture your wedding at Smith Barn in Peabody MA.  It’s an amazing venue and your an amazing couple.  While gathering together all the last minute details for the wedding I realized we never shared their engagement images on our blog.  They made it to facebook, but never the blog.

Happy Wedding Day Catie & Mike!

Shirley+Brandon | Proposal | Boston Public Gardens

Thanks to the lovely Dawn of Bellaria Designs, (thanks for the referral girl!!) I had the honor of shooting a proposal a few weeks back. It’s our first one and it was so exciting, I can’t wait to shoot another one.

Brandon contacted me just a few days before he was planning on proposing. What ensued was lots of back and forth emails and phone calls to come up with the perfect plan. After discussing a variety of options Brandon decided on the Boston Public Gardens and selected the perfect spot near the pond. He had a couple friends involved who placed the special items (the bear and bottle of personalized m&m’s) on a bench in the gardens and I staked out a location nearby waiting for them to walk in. He texted me when they were on the way into the park and his friends hid. A few people tried to sit on the bench before they got too close, I was able to ask them leave, still right at the last second a man sat down on the bench, I saw Brandon & Shirley coming so I wasn’t able to ask him to move. Still no matter that little snafu, I’d say the proposal went off without a hitch!

Congrats on your engagement Shirley & Brandon, I hope you had a great time celebrating with Justin Timberlake & Jay-z (they went to the concert at Fenway that night!! I’d say that’s a perfect way to celebrate getting engaged!)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Allison+Jason | M/S Mount Washington | Laconia NH

It was a beautiful day in May for Allison & Jason’s wedding.  After being together for a few ;) years, Allison and Jason decided to tie the knot.  Allison and I went to High School together so it was a treat to photograph a wedding for someone you’ve known for many years.  You couldn’t have asked for a better day to be out on Lake Winnipesaukee on the M/S Mount Washington celebrating.  Andrew and I were excited to be shooting on a boat (I for one was singing The Lonely Island’s “I’m on a boat” all day in my head).   It was an early start time with the ceremony at 10:15am out on the water (I’m not really a morning person, we were on the road by 7am) needless to say it was totally worth it.   Congrats again Allison & Jason, thank you for letting us be a part of your day.
