Gretchen and Jason’s Wedding

While February may not be a traditional time for a New England wedding, Gretchen and Jason had a beautiful day for their wedding yesterday at Boston’s Church of the Advent, downtown. They were fantastic sports too – braving the winter cold for portraits down by the frozen Charles river. Shooting in the church was a bit of a challenge, as flash isn’t permitted during the service, but it was well worth it, since it’s a gorgeous space.

Patsy and Me

This particular photo is about a year old, but we haven’t made it into the studio together in a while. As my (single-digit!) readership will already know, Patsy and I got engaged a couple weeks ago and we couldn’t be happier. Having been a part of so many weddings for so many wonderful couples, it is exciting to have a chance to think about my own :) (Though, as a few of my friends have already noted, finding a photographer may be a little daunting…)

Liz and Dave on the Mattapan High-Speed Line

I  always like to meet with my wedding couples before the big day for an engagement session – usually we’ll take the pictures in a public park or at my studio. Liz and Dave wanted something different, and arranged for us to get access (and a photography permit) to the car-house at the Mattapan red line station. We were able to board the trolleys and wander the tracks, resulting in photos that are quite different from my usual engagement photos. It’s always a pleasure to work with folks who want something a little bit out of the ordinary :)
