Best of 2018 {Massachusetts & New Hampshire Wedding, Event & Portrait Photographers}

What an amazing year this has been! Writing the end of year blog is always my favorite thing to do as it gives me another opportunity to revisit some of my favorite images we have taken this year…with some of our favorite people! As we look back on the year we have had we are so thankful for all of our amazing clients! We have had the pleasure of sharing some of your most important moments with you guys and it means the world to us that you had us capture them for you. This year we have shared so many laughs and emotional tears that is almost bittersweet that this year is coming to an end!

St. George's Orthodox Church Wedding {Massachusetts Wedding Photographers} Amanda & Connor

For the past few years we have had the pleasure of not only getting to know my friend Amanda, {who sadly no longer lives in my backyard Click here for the full story and to see their engagement photos and pregnancy reveal blog}, but also capturing her life through its many changes. From capturing photos of just her and her son Jameson when she was a single Mom, to her pregnancy reveal and engagement photos; Her story culminated at her beautiful June wedding to her now Husband Connor. 

Providence College Engagement Session {New England Wedding Photographers} Alicia & Tim

We have been all over the place recently capturing sessions and we were so happy to travel to Providence College to meet Alicia and Tim for their engagement session. They knew when deciding where to do their photos that no other place would be as special as where they met...Providence College! When Alicia and Tim met at an ABC Party {anything but clothes} I doubt they thought they would be returning back here for their Engagement Session! We met up with them to walk the grounds of their alma mater and capture their photos at some of the places that were most special to them! So much has changed since they graduated, but it still felt like home. 

Hampton Beach Engagement Session {New Hampshire Engagement Photographers} Aundie & John with Lily & Jack

Aundie and John have been all over our newsfeed lately after capturing their engagement session a couple months back and their recent wedding at Smolak Farms! I could get the feeling that people just couldn't get enough of them and their adorable kids so I wanted to make sure I blogged their engagement session {I pinky swear promise I will blog their wedding too...don't worry!}. 

Greycourt Park, Methuen Engagement Session {Massachusetts Engagement Photographer} Amanda & Connor

Amanda & Connor did their engagement session with us a few months ago, but since today feels like January I figured it was the perfect opportunity to share their photos. I struggled with how to title this blog because this session was SO MUCH MORE than just an engagement session! It was a engagement session, a family session, and a pregnancy reveal all wrapped up into one adorable package! I have known Amanda since we bought our home 5 years ago because she lives in our backyard. Not in the homeless vagrant kind of way, but she lives in the house behind mine...so I also live in her backyard. 

Favorite Engagement Session Locations {Massachusetts Wedding Photographers}

Picking the right spot can be difficult and is very personal to each couple. We always try to offer lots of different options so we can help find the right spot for each of them! When deciding where to go, I always recommend the couple think about things they like to do together, where they met, or shared hobbies they have. Also, some locations are great in the summer but might not be the best in the winter.

Greycourt Park, Methuen Engagement Session {Massachusetts Wedding Photographer} Allie & Donny

Often times we don't get to meet our couples until their engagement session, so the shoot is a great way for us to get to know each other before their big day! We had a perfect morning with Allie and Donny last weekend at Greycourt Park in Methuen {as many of you know is one of our favorite spots}. They were a lot of fun to spend time with, and they had great chemistry together.

North Andover Engagement Session {Massachusetts Engagement Photographers} Megan & Jeff

It’s always a pleasure when we get to work with old friends. Anthony and I both graduated from high school with Jeff and Megan (granted the guys are 4 years older than us ladies). Anthony has known Jeff since the 5th grade and they were on the track team together at Methuen High School and Megan and I went to Central Catholic together. Even though Central Catholic and Methuen High are bitter rivals, the four of us have proved that it’s possible to put our differences aside and fall in love {Even though CCHS is obviously superior}. 

Greycourt Park Maternity Session {Massachusetts Maternity Photographers} Victoria & Jason

Greycourt Park is by far one of our favorite spots to do photo sessions so it was the perfect place to recommend for Victoria & Jason's Maternity Session! Most people who make the drive up the big hill behind Methuen Town Hall are always shocked to find such a hidden gem in our town! It was also the most appropriate place for us to discuss this weeks Game of Thrones {Considering the remains of Tenney Castle do look like a battle had happened here many years ago!}

The Hellenic Center, Ipswich MA {Massachusetts Wedding Photographers} Erica & Robert

After capturing Erica & Robert's gorgeous Stevens-Coolidge Place Engagement Session last summer {Check it out here} we knew that their wedding was going to be amazing...but their picture perfect wedding exceeded all expectations! We started our day at the recently opened and absolutely gorgeous Beuport Hotel Gloucester where everyone was getting ready for the big day! While the girls drank mimosas and got dolled up, the guys shared laughs and a few pre wedding drinks. 

Smolak Farms Engagement Session {Massachusetts Engagement Photographers} Lindsey & Justin

I had the pleasure of joining Lindsey and Justin for a photo shoot at one of my favorite locations, Smolak Farms in North Andover, MA. We were very fortunate that evening, narrowly dodging a rain storm that ended just minutes before the shoot. Smolak farms was as beautiful as ever and Lindsey and Justin were naturals in front of the camera…but the real MVP was their cute little pup, Ford, who joined them in a few shots.

Merrimack Valley Golf Club Wedding {Massachusetts Wedding Photographers} Jason & Victoria

I have known Jason since he was breaking hearts in preschool as my parents and his were close friends growing up. So to say that he is like family to me would be an understatement. We have had the pleasure of getting to know Victoria since they first started dating and we have always loved their fun and loving relationship. 

Rolling Ridge Retreat Engagement Session {Massachusetts Engagement Session} Audrey & Tony

During Audrey and Tony's Engagement Session, one thing we learned was these two can't help but make each laugh, and we loved it! We met up with Audrey and Tony for an evening Engagement Session at Rolling Ridge Retreat and Conference Center in North Andover. Lucky for us, the flowers were all starting to bloom and the clouds parted just enough to give us a hint of a sunset while we made our way around their beautiful property.

Island Grove Park Engagement Session {Massachusetts Engagement Photographers} Shaunna & Bobby

As everyone starts thinking about the upcoming warmer weather and opening their pool, we can't help but still love this Engagement Session with Shaunna & Bobby where the pool was most definitely CLOSED! A fresh batch of snow was the perfect backdrop for this chilly engagement session this winter at Island Grove Park in Abington.

Hampton Beach Engagement Session {New Hampshire Engagement Photographers} Ashley & Jared

We always tell people when they are planning their engagement sessions with us to add personal touches to the session so it can be more special for them. Ashley and Jared did just that by picking the perfect spot for their engagement session! Jared's grandparents have a house at Hampton Beach where he spent most of his summers growing up and now gets to make even more memories there with his future wife {We made sure to include a cameo of the house as well}. 

Tewksbury Country Club Wedding, Tewksbury MA {Massachusetts Wedding Photographers} Colleen & Justin

Last July we had the pleasure of capturing Colleen & Justin's Wedding at The Tewksbury Country Club! It was such a hot day that they had the ceremony inside in front of their big beautiful fireplace. Lucky for them, TCC is such an awesome venue the inside is just as beautiful as the outside!

Andover Country Club Wedding {Massachusetts Wedding Photographers} Debbie & Billy

We got to capture Debbie and Billy's big day at the Andover Country Club in Andover, Massachusetts. After shooting Debbie's sister Rosie's wedding a few years ago, she knew all too well how difficult it can be to wrangle her big Italian family, so they added lots of extra time to the day to make sure we had plenty of time to capture all of their photos. 

Stevens-Coolidge Place, North Andover MA Engagement Session {Massachusetts Engagement Session} Erica & Rob

Having to reschedule a session due to a rainy day is usually never a good thing, except when the new session just so happens to have the most beautiful sunset we have seen all year! That's exactly what happened for Erica and Rob's Engagement Session at Stevens-Coolidge Place in North Andover, MA.

Atkinson Common, Newburyport {Massachusetts Engagement Photographers} Debbie & Billy

We met up with Debbie and Billy on the most perfect spring day at Atkinson Commons in Newburyport this past weekend for their engagement session. We lucked out too, because their wedding is less than a month away!
