Nicola+Steve Nov. 6 2010 | Wedding (Boxborough Holiday Inn)

Nicola & Steve found us not too many months ago, they had some issues with other photographers not returning calls and basically canceling on them.  They were stressed at the last minute and didn’t want to settle on a photographer.  Luckily we were available.  When Nicola & I met I told her it all happened for a reason so she could find us :)

We had a lovely time hanging out with Nicola, Steve & their family & friends.  They were a very fun & welcoming group to hang out with and everyone had a great time.  You can definitely see the love between Nicola & Steve and the love for them.  They have an adorable little daughter Maya who didn’t always want her photo taken (which is expected for a 2 year old…we should know!)  The ceremony & reception were at the Holiday Inn in Boxborough MA.  If you are having a wedding during the late fall or winter months, I think this location is a great choice.  You can have some “outdoor” atmosphere with all the plants inside the garden center.  It’s definitely a unique venue a short drive from Boston.

Highlights of the night for me, would be Nicola walking down the aisle and Maya hiding behind her.  I didn’t even realize she was hiding behind her until she walked passed me, she was tucked right up against her (as you’ll see in the photos) it was too cute.  The other highlight was the spur of the moment soul train line, it was only for a few minutes, but I was in heaven those few minutes.  I love a good soul train line…I mean who doesn’t love that!?!

Engaged? Get a cool wedding website!

Our main site is designed through Showit.  They offer a great service where you can create a really great site all by yourself without having to understand all the in’s and out’s of html & flash.  What makes it really great is we can update our site whenever we want.  It took a little work initially to get it all set up, but now I can easily tweak it.  The also offer templates that you can use, but when I created our site, I didn’t use a template (silly me).  If you are looking for great website (remember it’s your first connection with your clients) I suggest checking out showit.  They make it super easy & are constantly coming up with new & cool things.

Anyway, they have offered these +sites for quite sometime, but we hadn’t had a reason to use it before.  After shooting Katie & Kevin’s engagement session I remembered how photographer Stephen Knuth (as well as many others) use +sites to create wedding sites for their clients.  I was able to easily start with a template and then tweak it to create a custom website for Katie & Kevin.

If you book an engagement session with us, you now get a personalized wedding site from us.  I know many wedding planning sites offering web sites to couples.  The problem with those is they aren’t well designed & they can be a pain to setup.  All you need to do is give us the information of how you met & the details for your wedding ceremony & reception.  I’ll put it all together with the amazing photos we take during your engagement session.  The other great thing is after the wedding we’ll update your site with a slideshow of your wedding images.  Showit also offers another great function where you can have your website on your Facebook profile.  All you need to do is have the Showit app installed.

Here is a screen shot of the site…but make sure you go check it out in person.  I am super excited to offer it to our couples!
