    Genevieve + Stephen Engagement | Newburyport MA

    This was my first time at Maudslay State Park, and it was incredible! The perfect lighting, gorgeous location, and wonderfully loving people that are Genny and Steve, made this engagement session stunning. I can’t wait for their wedding in September!

    Natalie + Neill Engagement | York ME

    Natalie and Neill got engaged in York ME at the Nubble Lighthouse, so it only made sense to go back there for their engagement shoot! We started off with getting ice cream and walking around the town, similar to how they spent the day of their engagement. With the sun quickly setting, we then hopped into our cars and drove to the lighthouse to catch the last of the gorgeous light. Even though I vacationed in Maine all through my childhood, this was the first time I had ever been to the Nubble Lighthouse! It was so beautiful that even after the sun had set, I couldn’t stop shooting. Once it was…

    Caroline + Charlie

    Tis’ the season for weddings and I couldn’t be more excited 🙂 Caroline and Charlie had a beautiful wedding in Harvard Square. As I was walking around beforehand taking pictures, I surely looked like a very serious tourist who needed lots and lots of lenses 😉 Their nuptials took place at Appleton Chapel which is a smaller chapel within the Memorial Church at Harvard. It was intimate and fit Caroline and Charlie’s day perfectly. Afterwards, we walked through Harvard Square to the Grafton Street Pub where they were able to enjoy the company of their friends and family. Thank you Caroline and Charlie!

    Fhi on Beacon Hill

    Fhi and I met each other through a mutual acquaintance at the end of last year. We did a photoshoot in December and we are back at it again! Using my car as a changing room, we explored Beacon Hill and shot through different outfits. It brought me back to my years in high school photographing my friends in our town, except this time I’m surrounded by luxurious Brownstones and a beautiful model. Thanks for a great time Fhi!

    Fall River

    Yesterday was the first time I’ve ever been to Fall River. My friend/manager at the portrait studio I seasonally work at lives there and it was about time we visited her. We had planned this a while back so rain would not stop this adventure. In the torrential downpour, we visited Battleship Cove. The rain and wind made it a crazy the experience and I can now confirm that my Fujifilm is indeed weather-sealed.

    New Logo!

    Up to this point, I designed my own logo and was decently pleased with it. I have some sense of design but it was missing something. My friend recently got her logo professionally designed and like how I want people to entrust a professional for their wedding photos, I decided it was time to entrust a professional with my logo. My friend recommended me her friend, Miekala Cangelosi, and am so thrilled with the experience and final result. Miekala had me fill out a questionnaire regarding my brand and it really forced me to think about what I want my brand to stand for. It was incredibly refreshing to have…

    Fujifilm X-T1 vs Sony a7ii

    I’ve been in the market for a small high-end digital camera for a while. I have a Canon 5D mark iii for weddings but carrying that when traveling is tiring and mainly HEAVY. Shooting a wedding is fine because that’s literally why I am there, but carrying it when I’m exploring a new place just feels cumbersome and scary because the 5d is expensive. For the past few days, I had rented out the Sony a7ii with the Zeiss 35mm f/2.8 from Borrow Lenses and the Fufjifilm x-T1 with the 23mm f/1.8 from a fellow wedding photographer. I went out a handful of times shooting during the daytime and into…

    More Than Halfway

    It’s almost March which means there is a foreseeable end to this dead period that is winter. These past couple months have been really slow. This has its pros and cons. Pros – I can relax, I have time to work on my own projects, I have a lot more time and energy to be social. Cons – I don’t feel like I’m working enough, money is kind of tight, and I have time to sit with myself and freak out about what I’m doing with myself. It’s all about striking a balance. Earlier this month I began planning out my summer/fall with weddings which instantly lifted my mood. Knowing…

    Williamstown

    It’s probably the third or fourth time we’ve been to Williamstown and each time I’ve embraced it more and more. Nick went to school at Williams College which is one of the reasons we visit. The second reason being it’s beautiful and it’s a small taste of mountain air. This time, we took our two friends to share the experience with. We were planning on sledding but there was barely a drop of snow on the ground. I wonder how much snow we’ll get this year. Whenever I take any trip, I go through mental pro’s and con’s for bringing my camera. Pro’s – well…I like taking photos, I have a…

    Family Photos

    I’m already behind in my New Years Resolutions but I’m trying not to feel too bad about it. This month so far has been a month of reflection. We got back from Texas and the following weekend my brother and his fiancé came to visit from San Francisco. That was really nice because I hadn’t seen my brother since I graduated college, a year and a half ago. While they were visiting I arranged for a photo shoot of the family. Ever since working at the portrait studio, I have been thinking about how I wish I had more photos of my own family. Leading up to the shoot it…
