Best of Weddings Boston Wedding Photographer

marthas vineyard allen farm wedding photographer2011 is a wrap! I finished up my 2011 year returning from shooting in Puerto Rico, heading to a New Year’s Eve wedding in downtown Chicago for a bride and groom who came in from Boston. The day was unseasonably warm, and we got a killer sunset. The following morning, I got on a plane for my first 2011 wedding, which was in Toronto at the Soho Metropolitan Hotel. My clients were from Chicago and Bermuda and hosted one of the coolest, most intimate little weddings I have ever been to. Back in Chicago, I photographed Jennifer and Kyle’s winter wedding at The Rookery. Before “wedding season” kicked off in the United States, I headed to shoot another wedding in Jamaica for a Jamaican bride and groom from Washington D.C. Jamaica is one of my favorite places, and each time I go, I meet new friends.

Wedding season kicked off in Boston, with lots of shoots in my favorite neighborhoods. This summer I had three brides named Annie, and two of them had back to back weddings one week after another at River East Arts Center. Annie and Sunil held their ceremony and reception at River East Arts Center, and Annie and Ian got married at Holy Family Parish and River East the following week.

In addition to Massachusetts and Illinois, this year I got to work with couples calling in from Scotland, Bermuda, China, Jamaica, Australia, Puerto Rico, Oregon, California, Virginia, New York, Arizona, Louisiana, Rhode Island, and New Mexico. I might be forgetting some locations as well. Skype calls have become the norm in communicating with couples who plan their weddings from far away. The above image is from Pete and Annie’s Martha’s Vineyard wedding. I think it takes the cake as a top favorite. After the ketubah signing, Annie and Pete made time for some photos on the sprawling grounds of Martha’s Vineyard where we got to walk and shoot amongst all sorts of farm animals. As we headed down a dirt path, roosters began chasing Annie in her cowgirl boots and wedding gown and Pete chased after her. Throughout the thousands images that fill up terabytes of space on my hard drive, I would like to highlight a small fraction of the moments that stood out as my personal best.

Sometimes, stealing a bride for a night photo is the best time for them to spent 5 minutes (almost) alone on their wedding day!
