Seth Kaye Photography bio picture
  • Seth Kaye is a multiple award-winning documentary wedding photographer who has been called one of the Top 50 Wedding Photographers in the United States, one of the Top 20 Wedding Photographers in Boston, and one of the best wedding photojournalists in New England.

    His years of experience as a photojournalist, combined with an academic background in the fine arts, make him uniquely qualified to document weddings in an unobtrusive, respectful fashion.

    Seth’s narrative photographic style reflects a philosophy in which the photographer observes rather than directs, where real moments are free from manipulation and interference.

    His work belongs to a tradition of photography which relies on seeing and understanding the significance of the moment, and capturing it.

Delaney House

Christen + Scott knew each other in high school but it wasn’t until years later that they began to date, which eventually led to their colorful and emotional wedding last fall at the Delaney House. While they both got ready for the day at the adjoining D Hotel, we did a bit of coordinating so we could make portraits of the bridesmaids and the groomsmen without Christen + Scott seeing each other until the ceremony.

Later in the evening Christen had an energetic dance with her father that made everyone laugh, which was followed by A Lot of dancing by family and friends. With purple uplighting at the reception the whole room looked great and made a colorful backdrop for photos until the house lights went up at the end of the night.

Log Cabin Fall Wedding

The sunset was perfect for romantic portraits on Caitlin + Nathan’s wedding day at the Log Cabin, as was the fall weather for their outdoor ceremony.

I began my coverage of their big day at their home where Caitlin was getting ready with her bridesmaids, and from there we drove to the Log Cabin where she got into her dress and met up with Nathan for their first look. That gave us the opportunity to make wedding party photos before the ceremony, leaving plenty of time for the family formals that were to come afterward.

Later, once the family and wedding party were introduced and Caitlin + Nathan had their first dance, several heartfelt toasts were made which led into the cake cutting. From there on out there was a lot of dancing, laughing, and emotion to finish out the night.

Kimberly + Patrick’s wedding at the Log Cabin…

Log Cabin Wedding

Kimberly + Patrick were married at the Log Cabin in Holyoke one day after their five year dating anniversary. They were introduced by Kimberly’s sister and down the line Patrick proposed during a trip to Cape Cod, even setting up a GoPro to capture the moment.

We began their wedding day with some prep coverage before heading to the Log Cabin where Kimberly also got into her dress. The weather was perfect for their ceremony overlooking the valley as well as family portraits before the reception got under way. They wanted an idea for a wedding party photo they hadn’t seen before, so we picked up some of the chairs and set up a faux battle between the bridesmaids and groomsmen.

After the toasts, parent dances, and the beginning of the dancing we went back outside for some sunset photos. Once back inside the Log Cabin the dancing started up again and continued through the end of the night.

UMass Engagement Session
I was excited to photograph another UMass engagement session recently. Dawn + Dan met as chemical engineering students at UMass Amherst, so when we looked at locations to have their engagement session we chose the John W. Lederle Graduate Research Center, visiting the library where they studied and the lecture hall where they actually met. We also went to the Durfee Conservatory and spent some time amongst the foliage. Prior to the session Dawn had her hair and makeup done by Crystal Vazquez and Company.

I’m looking forward to photographing their wedding next year, but in the meantime here are some photos from their engagement session…

Kinney Bungalow Wedding

Pam + Tai’s wedding ceremony at Point Judith in Rhode Island was certainly one to remember. With panoramic views overlooking the ocean and an adjacent lighthouse we had the opportunity to make some epic portraits after the ceremony as the sun was about to set. Prior to that, however, Pam got ready at a spacious beach house that featured amazing light nearly everywhere. 

For their reception we travelled from Point Judith to the nearby Kinney Bungalow where we spent the remainder of the night. Next to the venue was a converted tobacco farm where we made the above portrait, after which Pam + Tai danced and enjoyed the company of their family and friends.
