Peter and Devan | Northampton Backyard Wedding

Devan and Peter eloped in LA, where they live last year during Covid.  So they had planned a large elopement celebration at Devan’s mother’s house in Northampton.  All of the flowers and decor were DIY, even Devan’s dress was changed by her aunt the night before the wedding….and I love how it all came together!

The day was so full of love and smiles.  Both of Devan’s parents play in a band, and it’s tradition for the band to sing at their children’s wedding…so fun!  

We ended out the evening with Herrell’s ice cream truck!  I think ice cream might be the new wedding cake!

Dress: Teuta Matoshi

Ice cream truck: Herrell’s

Sarah and Kang | Callahan State Park Engagement

Sarah and Kang met in high school and have a serious love of the outdoors and hiking.  They suggested Callahan State Park and it was the perfect spot!  

After coating ourselves in bug spray we had an awesome session, and the light on top of the earthen dam was to die for!

I suggest couple’s pick a location that is not only pretty but meaningful to themselves.  Somewhere they like to go for a walk, a brewery they frequent, their favorite coffee shop.  This helps the photos tell the story of your relationship, and when you look back on them in ten years it will remind of you of a special time in your dating relationship.

Lee and Melissa | Oakholm Farm Wedding

Venue: Oakholm Farm
Bridesmaids Dresses: Revelry
Invites: Minted
Hair and Makeup: KiSSandMaKeUp
Catering: Lattitude
Melissa was one of my very first vendor friends, we have worked together so many times in the past years….planning styled shoots, weddings, and getting together for vendor blenders and holiday parties!  I was so excited when she got engaged to Lee!  I was already booked on her wedding date, but I couldn’t wait to see how amazing her photos from her wedding would be…since she has such a great eye for detail!  Well Covid happened and she had to delay her wedding and I was available…happy dance!
Melissa and Lee started dating on Cinco De Mayo, and Lee asked her to marry him with a mariachi band…so naturally a Mexican themed wedding was the perfect fit for them!  They had a guacamole bar, mariachi band, and custom margarita!  Christina from Oakholm even got one of the donkeys to wear a floral crown for us!  This was one of my favorite weddings, I am so blessed to be able to photograph my friends getting married!

Karl and Taylor were one of my sweet Covid couples and had to delay their wedding a year.  On the day of we battled thunderstorms, delaying the ceremony and causing us to run in and outside for portraits.  Taylor and Karl chose not to do a first look, but Taylor did a first look with her dad and bridesmaids.  I love the idea of doing a first look with the bridesmaids, Taylor had her maid of honor help her get dressed and then revealed her look to her bridesmaids.  It was so fun to see their different reactions.

This was my first time seeing Quonquont’s new open air pavilion and I loved it!  Especially on a day where we had both rain and hot sun at the ceremony, it was so great to be under cover but still have some great outdoors light.  It was also so great to see people dancing and mingling inside again!  And man are people ready to party, so many awesome dance moves!
