Congratulations Maureen & Jason!!!

What an Amazing Day and a perfect Couple!!! Maureen & Jason, you two were such a pleasure to photograph, I had a blast from the "I Do" at the alter all the way to the "woohoo" on the dance floor! These love birds were so sweet together and all of their friends and family were so much fun to be around! Thank you both so much for letting me be a part of such a great day! I wish you nothing but the best!!!

Congratulations Amanda & Penny!!!

What a gorgeous night and an amazing couple, you can't beat that combo! Amanda and Penny were a delight to photograph, their love shown through so brightly that I just had to stand back and click the shutter, they did all the rest! There is also something really amazing about very small weddings, when it is just the couple and the players who perfrom and photograph the wedding, the star of the show is the union, the commitment that marriage is all about. These moments in time, witnessing two people so in love finally join together and make the ultimate commitment to eachother, these moments are why I am a wedding photographer. Thank you Amanda & Penny for including me in such a remarkable day in your lives.

Lindsey + Matthew

Fall is definitely in the air, but we squeaked in the last bit of summer for these two love birds and their Engagement Portrait! Though a little windy it was a glorious day and the three of us had a blast snapping photos all around Edgartown Harbor and up and down Mainstreet. We even hit up Memorial Warf. Thanks for being so in love and an amazing couple you two, it makes my job sooo much easier!

Congratulations Becky & Lou!!!

There is something very magical about the town of Aquinnah; it's position on the Island and in the Ocean gives way to a frequent and romantic fog that can keep you cool and sheltered on a hot summers day. Becky and Lou were married above the cliffs of Aquinnah and under the watchfull light of the Gat Head light House, it was a remarkable day filled with Love, amazing music, and tons of fun! Congratulations you two! It was such a pleasure for me to be a part of your awesome day!

Megan…

I love photographing Senior Portraits, it's such an exciting time of life; everything is right at your fingertips and you are ready to embark on your journey of life! All of those wonderful feelings shine through in the portraits and it's such an exciting energy to be around. It also helps that Megan is stunning and her and her Mom are sweet as pie! You gals were a delight to spend time with while we tromped around edgartown taking photos. Thank you!
