Sarah and Nick

I love getting calls from old friends to celebrate their special day by documenting it through photos! Nick and I worked together a few years ago at a Boston-based nonprofit. He’s a fun loving guy who is dedicated to cross fit as well as giving back to the community.  I remember when he first met Sarah and would bring Paleo treats to work that his new friendbaked for him. He never did share.

The wedding of Sarah and Nicholas on September 10th was perfect in so many ways-- lovely weather, great people, good vibes and a beautiful setting. The event was at Five Bridge Inn in Rehobeth. Five Bridge Inn is a picture perfect setting with a historic home on beautiful grounds complete with a barn and llamas. I have to admit that I am a farm lover so I get excited when couples reach out to ask me about photographing a farm wedding. You never know if the animals will participate in your photo shoot.

Thank you to Sarah and Nick for giving me the pleasure of photographing your wedding!

 

Old friends

I was a guest at a wedding this past weekend for a change. I have been friends with the groom since kindergarten. His mother asked me if I could bring my camera and shoot some video. I prefer to be behind the lens so I said I would try my best in a dress and heels. His mother is one of my treasured friends and biggest fans. I wish I had more from the evening but I think I did more playing than shooting. There is also video that I need to edit.

Here are a few of Meredith and Anthony. The wedding was at the Bedford Village Inn in New Hampshire. It was a beautiful setting for a lovely couple.

Wishing you both all the best in your new life together!


Belem

Day Two - Belem. Home of the Belem pastries and the Mosteiro dos Jeronimos, a monestary fit for royalty. The story is that the clergy from the monastery started selling the pastries when the monastery closed in the 1830s. The waterfront surrounding the city was filled with racing sailors and the Torre de Belem, a fortress for protection. Belem sits where the Targus meets the Atlantic. There was also the Padrao dos Descobrimentos, an impressive statue shaped as a boat and surround by carved crusaders looking out towards the sea ahead.  And, yes, the creamy filling in the famous custard cream tarts was the best I have ever tasted.

Lisbon

The last two weeks of May were a whirlwind. Left my master's degree graduation ceremony at 4pm and at the airport heading to Portugal by 6pm. I took over 3000 photos during my two week journey. Many of these will never be seen, erased into oblivion, but my dear friend Kelly of Kelly Davidson Photography has been bugging me to start a blog. So here it is Kelly. 

First stop, Day One. Lisbon.
