Wedding: Natasha and Dave

You may remember Natasha and Dave from their engagement session in February. I was so excited to work with them again because I loved their laid-back demeanor. They were so happy and I knew that would reflect in their wedding photos. They held their wedding and reception at Independence Harbor in Assonet, MA when snow was still blanketing the ground. It was a sight to behold!

Love how coy they are in this photo – heading off to the reception!natasha 5

One thing you may notice about these two is how they’re always smiling – and that’s natural. Definitely a rarity nowadays, but so heartwarming to witness.

I absolutely loved taking photos with the sun bouncing off the snow – how’s that for natural lighting?natasha 1Check out Natasha and Dave’s engagement session.

 

Wedding: Kristi and Dan

I was thrilled when I heard Kristi and Dan were having their wedding at Chateau Tivoli┬áin San Francisco. I was so intrigued by their unique wedding concept – Kristi wore a gorgeous Victorian-style wedding dress to complement the vintage feel of the venue. And then I realized I would be able to visit Ghirardelli and stuff myself with chocolate and that made the trip that much more exciting.kristi 6

I was so impressed by how classy and thorough the theme was. Every inch of the bridal party was decked out in elaborate fancy garb. Each person seemed so happy for the bride and groom, who seemed truly happy and in love.kristi 5

The most heart-wrenching part of a wedding for me has always been witnessing a father walk his daughter down the aisle. Watching their faces contort as they try not to cry is always fun yet emotional to watch.kristi 3

But the first dance is always my favorite part of a wedding – the hushed silence makes it seem like the bride and groom are the only people in the room, and we get to witness this special moment. What a great experience!kristi 4
