I knew from my phone conversation with Caitlin that she and Matt's intimate, summer wedding in Boston, MA would be a dream to photograph. I could tell that Caitlin loved details and she blew me away when I saw her veil...Butterflies...everywhere....yes, you read that correctly. They were so elegant and whimsical. I just love when couples incorporate special details into their big day. It was breathtaking and unique.
I always love the opportunity to travel, so going to Boston was quite the experience from rural Vermont. Their ceremony was at Boston College and their reception was at the luxurious No.9 restaurant in Boston's Beacon Hill. The Boston Public Garden was near the restaurant so we were able to take some beautiful portraits there, even though there was a crowd of people, it was worth it and they rocked it.
Below are some of my favorites from their day.
Eric and Eugenie had an amazing two-day wedding at their private residence in Whitingham, VT in October. When I arrived at their home, which is nestled by mountains and water, I knew this event would not disappoint. The home had recently been under major renovations and the old barn attached to the house was where the intimate ceremony was going to take place with their closest friends and family. After they exchanged vows, the party began. Unique signature drinks were served while a bonfire and games were played on the lawn. There was something for everyone to do....even the kiddos with a giant jenga game with the couples' name engraved on it. The next day, more of their friends arrived by bus to share in the festivities and enjoy a magnificant lobster dinner under a tent. The bibs alone cracked me up, but let me just say it was amazing food. By the end of the night, dancing took over and that sweet smell of fall tickled my nose. Congrats to a loving and fun couple! Below are some of my favorite images from their day.
Eilee stole my heart during this vibrant, fall photo shoot in the berkshires. She was up for anything and she really seemed to love using some of the props I brought. She's a vermonter at heart, so when I saw the hunter boots with the overalls, I was smitten. Her furry crew followed us along for the afternoon and kept us all entertained. I've found over the years taking kid portraits that the key is to take many breaks and just play and be silly sometimes. Eilee, thank you for showing me your infectious smile and I hope you keep giggling.
