Boston Engagement Session

This Boston engagement session was so much fun to shoot! As we walked to the different sites the trees came alive with color. Autumn engagement sessions offer a romanticism like no other with its sessional traits. The comforting color palette of passionate reds, serene oranges, cheerful yellows and even earthy tones of stability, radiate a feeling of romance. Color is such an important factor in distinguishing our mood. The lighting also created a sense of urban romance for this Boston engagement session . The setting sun of the day, dim headlights of passing cars and streetlights,  the way the light peeked through the rusted steel of  an old walking bridge, and the glistening of a reflection on the water, provided gorgeous lighting opportunities when enhanced by Boston’s old structures. The composition of lines from bridges, rails, lampposts and street signs gave this shoot that classic urban vibe. This is a city of great character!

PS:  So one of my really fantastic interns is writing my blogs this summer – can you tell she reads romance novels?  Ay yay yay!:)

Brooklake Country Club Fusion Wedding – Mike & Shirley

Brooklake Country Club Fusion Wedding

This Brooklake Country Club fusion wedding was probably one of my favorites to shoot! The mixing of two cultures & traditions make for a memorable experience. Take this fun couple’s fusion wedding as an example. The traditional aspects of a church ceremony, cake cutting, dancing, and even tossing the bouquet & garter are all present, but with a bit more flair! Forget the silky white wedding and embrace the vibrancy of color and character! Bright colors in the Indian culture represent the feeling of joy. These jewel tones make for some gorgeous shots! The romantic symbolism is also a unique aspect of a fusion wedding. For example, “the henna tattoo.” Most of us have have applied one for fun at a carnival on a hot summers day, but have you ever asked yourself where it originates from? Henna, or as it is formally known in the Hindu culture as “Mehndi,” is rich in imagery and symbolism. Brides sit for hours while it is applied and sets, and with beautiful reasoning. It is said that the darker the pigment stains the skin of the bride, the more luck will come her way in having a happy, loving marriage, with a husband and mother-in-law that adore her.  It is also believed that the slower the stain fades the more luck will come to the marriage. If you are looking to explore the world in your own back yard I highly recommend attending one these events. Especially  at this venue where the grounds offer so many great backdrops!

Bridgewater Manor Wedding – Katelyn & Matt

Most brides dream of their wedding day being filled with romance and a touch of magic since they were little girls. A vision in a dreamy white gown, the light smell of fresh cut flowers and being surrounded by loved ones are just a few standards that are thought about in great depth. A Bridgewater Manor Wedding offers  fantastic grounds  for outdoor shooting and a perfect sunset backdrop. The woodsy yet elegant setting, the fountain, pond and garden will make for many pretty portraits.  The trees were not yet in bloom, yet the landscape around them came alive with color.   Katelyn simply made the right style and color choices and didn’t leave a single thing to chance. The venue itself gives off an air of classiness and romance as it stands surrounded by its vast grounds. Inside, one’s experience is further enriched with its grand staircase, halls, architecture and friendly staff. For 26 years this venue has been able to delight both the couple and their guests with outstanding service.  The Bridgewater Manor Wedding is close to Natirar Park ( where the first look was shot) and very many protected historic farms in Bedminster New Jersey. The last time I photographed a wedding at the Manor, a friendly farm owner let us shoot on their grounds with a gorgeous horse!  I enjoyed photographing this beautiful couple -  Katelyn is down to earth and just awesome to work with.

Enjoy!
