Log Cabin Wedding: Joelle and Charlie


sunset wedding portrait
Joelle + Charlie’s wedding day couldn’t have been more perfect. From the beautiful weather of their outdoor ceremony, to their choreographed moves during their first dance to John Legend’s “All of Me”, to the fun their guests had throughout the night.

They both began their day at the same hotel, and thankfully on the same floor, meaning I could simply walk down the hall to photograph each of them getting ready. From there they made their way to the Log Cabin for a moving ceremony followed by family portraits, and ended the day surrounded by family and friends. 

Joelle + Charlie had additional help on their day from…

Top 20 Wedding Photographer in Boston

I’m proud and humbled to announce that has listed me at #7 of the Top 20 Wedding Photographers in Boston. While my studio is in the western part of the state I do travel all around New England photographing weddings, and have had some great experiences photographing couples in Boston and the surrounding areas.

Here is a link to the original article if you’d like to read it for yourself.

American Horror Story Inspired Engagement Session : Andrea + Ryan

American Horror Story

When making plans for their engagement session, Andrea and Ryan thought a bit higher concept for the photographs they wanted to make. Being big fans of American Horror Story, they put themselves in my hands to create something a bit darker and edgier than average.

We decided to take on American Horror Story Season One: Murder House. Rather than literal interpretations we instead made images inspired by that season. We traveled to a sprawling mansion in Danvers, MA that has built into its architecture parts of the now-demolished Danvers State Hospital, which in different times was also named the State Lunatic Hospital at Danvers, the Danvers Lunatic Asylum, and the Danvers State Insane Asylum. 

Collaborating on the day were…
Hair + Makeup Artist : Karrie Welch
Lighting Assistant : Ian Pouliot

Here are some photos from the session…

Day in the Life Session : Amanda + David

I’ll be photographing Amanda and David’s wedding this fall, and instead of a standard engagement session I spent all day with them for a day in the life session.

We started and ended the day with portraits on the beach, and in between spent time with their family and friends at a cozy beach house playing bocce, grilling, and later making s’mores in a firepit once the sun set.

Here are some photos from the day…
