Kristen and Mark’s wedding was the epitome of a classy downtown Boston affair, held high in the sky at the State Room.  Though sophisticated, this bride and groom let their emotions flow with heartfelt vows and crazy dance moves. It was one of those weddings where you could feel the love and joy at every moment, and it was a joy to be there and capture it.

One little snippet of the day I need to share – while I was photographing Kristen and Mark outside Faneuil Hall for the formals, a little boy asked his mother if Kristen was a princess!  I guess that confirmed it:)  To Kristen and Mark!

To my delight, Katie and Kevin decided to have their engagement session photographed at the Arnold Arboretum.  It was a drizzly day, but that didn’t deter them!   They thought the mist would add a romantic backdrop and they were right.  I love how the park looks like an enchanted garden – or as Katie said, “just like ‘The Secret Garden'”.   I also love how brave this future bride was – not afraid to climb trees and jump into Kevin’s arms.  They were such a fun and loving couple and I am looking forward to photographing their wedding next summer!

This morning I photographed Jackson and Olivia, a favorite set of siblings I photograph yearly.  This time, we headed to a gorgeous park near their home called Elm Bank Park.  There are paths, fields, a horticultural center, and a garden that caters to children called “Weezie Park”.  Jack and Livi ran around the oversized birds nests and sandbox, playing with delight until hunger set it.  Well-fed  and comfortable in their surroundings , I snapped some photos after lunch as their true colors really came out.

I am proud to announce that I now offer 4 customizable holiday card designs.  In addition to photographing this fall, I figured that it would be fun to whip up a few designs as an great add-on for family portrait packages.  They can be ordered on their own with any existing image you want to use.

The flat cards are 5 x 7″  and feature preppy plaids and stylish chevron patterns.  All pattern colors are customizable.  So is the text you would like to include on the back or inside of your card.  I only charge a flat design fee plus the Miller Pro cost/card printing and shipping.  The best thing is that these cards ship overnight for only $4!

$108 for 50,  $156 for 100, and $260 for 200.  Cost includes design, print, and envelopes.  I can also design matching return labels for $45/50.

FYI, the photographs of Dan and me are taken at Fresh Pond in Cambridge, one of my favorite spots.

Yesterday I got to photograph a charming high school senior named Christian who has aspirations of becoming an architect.  Some of you probably know how pumped I was that he chose to be photographed at the Institute of Contemporary Art (a venue that holds a lot of meaning for me)!  The modern lines of the museum’s architecture combined with the Boston Harbor and skyline provided the perfect, cool backdrop for a guy portrait session.   During the session, Christian, his mom, and I discussed the rapidly changing Seaport District.  We took a stroll through some of the construction grounds as well as an older section of Fort Point Channel, resulting in a series images that juxtapose Christian in front of  “Old Boston” and “New Boston”.
