Beantown Baby…

Meet Baby Lyla, she's a Beantown Beauty! I had the pleasure of Photographing her Parent's Wedding and Engagement portrait a few years back. As always it was great to see Katie and Peter, and I couldn't be happier than when I'm capturing such wondrous moments in life! K & P, I hope to see you guys on the Vineyard for a summer portrait when Lyla is a little older!

It was brisk but beautiful in Vineyard Haven Harbor this weekend where we managed to snag some pretty awesome shots! Thanks Guys for being awesome friends and braving the cold with me, it was totally worth it!

Congratulations Morgan & Dustin!!!

I LOVE AUTUMN on the Vineyard!!! It is by far the best time of year for our beautiful Island. The weather is warm and crisp, the nights are cool and cozy, the sun is a blanket of orange glow and the people are content. Morgan and Dustin picked the perfect time of year to wed, as they know being Islanders themselves, they also picked some amazing spots as well! You might recognize these two love birds from their picturesque Engagement Portrait at the East Chop Lighthouse and Lagoon docks. Here they are as Husband and Wife Wed in Ocean Park and ferried across the Oak Bluffs Harbor to their amazing reception at the East Chop Beach Club. Congratulations Morgan & Dustin, it was a pleasure to photograph your wedding!!!

Thank you guys so much for letting photograph such a special day. Check out these two gorgeous love birds...

Kurstin + Dayce

Check out these two gorgeous Love Birds! Kurstin, Dayce and I had a blast running around South Beach where Kurstin Life Gaurds all Summer. We also managed to tresspass, not uncommon in the photo world but always harmless, and sneak a few shots off the sand in Katama. I can't wait to Photograph their Wedding next Summer!!! I couldn't post all of my favorite shots from this shoot b/c we are keeping some secret for the big day! Stay Tuned...

Can't wait for the wedding!!!! xoxoxo




The Hong Family...

You might remember these two love birds and their awesome family from their wedding last year on the Vineyard. They are back again and this time for an early morning portrait shoot on Lambert's Cove Beach! LBC just happens to be my most favorite morning spot on the entire Island to take photos. I LOVE IT! We had fun finding different spots in and out of the surf to shoot while basking in the early morning cool light. Check it out...




Congatulations Lindsay & Ted!!!

I am sooo glad I was able to photograph this wedding!!! Lindsay and Ted are some of the cutest love birds I've met, and their wedding was AMAZING!!!! Lindsay had great taste choosing some of my favorite vendors to work with including the artful design of Lynda Dandeneau Flowers and the mouth watering Cakes by Liz all set in the Edgartown's Harborview setting, and take a look at her dress! Not to mention these love birds are quite photogenic and completely in love! It was a very easy day for me to do what I do! I felt like a little girl in a candy shop! I could gush and gush all day but I will let the photos speak for themselves, congratz Lindsay and Ted, and thank you for bringing me in on your marvelous wedding!

Check these two love birds out...

The Mountz Family...

Family Portraits are fun, but Family portraits with a family of four kids are my favorite! I am biased of course; growing up with three brothers myself in a family with four kids I just can't imagine life any other way! To watch the mountz family interact and play with eachother was like a trip down memory lane! Thanks you guys for being so awesome, I hope to see you all again next year!
