Lisa+Chad l Hall of Springs Wedding


We have another winter wedding to feature on the blog this morning! We’ve done a lot of winter weddings this year, but that might be at least partially due to the winter that never ends. Fortunately we’ve had a pretty winter though too, and some great weddings. This wedding was not only pretty but also had a couple I already knew (and loved), and was a Hall of Springs wedding. Everyone who follows the blog knows how much we love a Hall of Springs wedding, especially with a classic C+W couple… so let’s dive in!

We’re always looking for these expressions once the dress starts getting put on. It’s funny but you can feel the energy shift once the wedding dress gets put on in the brides room.

Another beautiful C+W bride!

Lisa had a nice moment with her father once the dress was put on

Alice captured this great little series of the flower girl, I love the image of her looking at the bride through the window

Chad is a man after my heart with his family shoe cleaning kit. A man who takes care of his shoes instantly gets props from me (anyone who knows me knows I love shoes). It was a great touch in the getting ready

In addition Lisa shared this about Chad: “Chad is an illustrator and is big on typography. We loved our invitations of with our names in League Gothic and the ampersand in Adobe Caslon Pro Semibold Italic, so we made that into an “L & C” logo that we sprinkled through out. Our friend carved the logo into wood for us, and my sister-in-law created a sign for the back of our chair.”

It was time to set up the first look once the getting ready was over

It was cold, but these 2 were troopers once again! In the engagement shoot it was mosquitos and tall grass, this time it was freezing wind and ice patches. No matter what these 2 have huge smiles in front of the camera – thank you!

The set up around the Hall of Springs was beautiful, and organized so all could see the ceremony

These 2 brought the energy for what ended up being an awesome reception (props to DJ Paul Malo who was a rockstar the entire night)

Lisa+Chad designed the ballroom at Hall of Springs to have an ivory, gold, and red color scheme which was beautiful

Fenway Park Engagement Photos!


We’re very excited to start this weekend off right – with some gorgeous Fenway Park engagement photos! I’ve been keeping this shoot silent for quite some time now, Colleen asked me to keep it under wraps since the shoot was for their save-the-dates. Out of respect I decided to keep it on the shelf for the offseason, but now we’re ready to give this awesome shoot a feature! Colleen+Carson approached me about capturing their engagement photos at Fenway park last summer. Her father works for the Red Sox so the shoot was something we all were excited about, and given amazing access to do it. Anyone who follows the blog knows that we get to shoot in some very, very cool locations and this was right up there! Alisha and I being huge baseball fans, this was especially neat for me. Anyway on to these Fenway Park engagement photos!

I started on top of the dugout of course… because how often do you get to stand on top of the Red Sox dugout? No I’m joking, that was fun, but I loved the light, the park, and the logo all factoring into this first set

Having the whole park to yourself is awesome

Another gorgeous C+W couple of course! Fenway Park engagement photos are easy to begin with, but these 2 made it cake

We even went around the park for some fun shots

They had to give the Sox some love!

And since her father had Championship rings from the Sox, their “ring shot” was just a wee bit different than normal :)

I have to say capturing these Fenway Park engagement photos was one of the most fun sessions I had all summer. I hope you enjoyed checking them out! Now… if only some people in St Louis wanted to hire us for a Cardinals e-shoot!!

Melissa+Scott l Lake Placid Winter Wedding


I’m almost afraid of bring up the fact that this Lake Placid winter wedding is filled with snow. I know we’ve seen so much of it here in the Northeast this winter season. However, I think this wedding puts all that cold winter snow in the best possible light, showing us how beautiful the snow can be. While it’s been continuous, deep and never ending for months, we can still be mesmerized by it’s beauty.

We had a great time be a part of this Lake Placid winter wedding, and Melissa+Scott were a fabulous couple. We can’t thank you enough, and hope you love the wedding video!
PS – if you think they look familiar, you are correct! These two were featured on the blog (LINK) in January as well!

University Club NYC Wedding Video I Margaret+David


Three years ago we had the honor of shooting Jonathan+Eva’s wedding at the Botanical Gardens in Brooklyn. Imagine our excitement when Jonathan’s identical twin brother invited us to be a part of his University Club NYC Wedding. As with Jonathan’s wedding, David+Margaret’s wedding embodied the same values and traditions that come from a close knit family. Margaret with her mother and three sisters and David with his brother, sister and parents, was what made this wedding so spectacular.

Getting the dress on was fun to watch. Margaret and her sisters playfully having a moment getting the dress on, was fun to participate in. I hope when you watch this video, you will see what I mean. I think the same thing can be said for David and his father and brother playing pool in the billiard room, just without the stress of a wedding gown to deal with! Yes, I said billiard room, just wait until you see the University Club NYC. The library where David and Margaret did their portraits was a maze of arches, endless books, and Mahogany.

We are so excited to share this University Club NYC wedding today, and finish what we started three years ago; bringing together loving and caring families.


Thank you for allowing us to share in your University Club wedding! For those that want to see more from this wedding feel free to check out their wedding photos HERE.
