Photograph the Proposal

December 28, 2009



Photographing proposals have been so heart warming, so valuable and just such a wonderful thing to capture.  The groom and I planned it out so that I could capture this moment on film without the bride knowing.  Needless to say she was totally surprised. 

It was an exhilarating experience for me.  Patiently waiting behind a tree for the couple to arrive, my heart ran with anticipation.  Seeing the expression of love on the brides face and being witness to such a joyous moment is really one of the greatest things about this job.  I know from personal experience the value of having the proposal photographed because I had my own proposal photographed.  Looking back at those photos and reliving that time in our lives  is so precious.  Any guys out there who are considering proposing, check us out first.  We’re currently offering the ptp (photograph the proposal) for free!  Email at

Think Happy Thoughts

December 18, 2009

As you may know, this is the new blog and with it we are considering a few new features for the new year.  The idea is to have a recurring segment that readers can know to look for, say… every Monday morning.  I know Monday’s can be difficult for some of us and I love hearing happy words, especially in the morning.  I can be a little grumpy before 10 am.  What do you think, a few happy thoughts, or a positive quote on every Monday morning.  We’d love to hear your thoughts, leave a comment!

Post Wedding Perfect

December 1, 2009

I heart this photo shoot! I’ve been wanting to photograph at the Friendly Toast Diner in Kendal Sq. (Cambridge, MA) for quite some time now. I’m so grateful to the bride and groom who got all dolled up after the wedding for this post-wedding photo shoot. I should give credit to the Trash-the-Dress guy. Ever since TTD took off, I’ve had several opportunities to photograph brides and grooms after the wedding. The beauty of it is that it allows the photographer to be creative without the time constraints of a wedding. It also allows the bride and groom to get more photos for their album without having to sacrifice their precious time on the wedding day. The later photos were taken at The Stata Center at M.I.T. How great is that building!? My hat goes off to Frank Gehry, the architect.
