Liz and John have style. I actually want to move in with them, their house is so funky and cool. (in fact, if it weren’t for the little bat problem they had recently, I’d probably be in the guest room right now.) I love when the stylish elements of a couple’s personality shine through in their wedding… there was nothing cookie cutter about this. And even though Liz claims to hate wedding planning, she did a fantastic job. The best part of the whole day was the way Liz and John interact, and how it makes the people around them happy. They both come from fabulous families, and you can see how Liz’s parents’ beautiful and loving marriage have set the example for her, and how John’s relaxed and happy parents’ set the example for him (when yu have 7 kids, you have to learn very quickly to be relaxed!) It was a great wedding for us to be a part of, as, as always, Heather cried along with the bride at the ceremony

It was wedding madness! We couldn’t be happier with the fantastic weddings that we were a part of over Columbus Day weekend, officially the new busiest weekend of the year!
We like to spend half of the time you allot to formals with your families and wedding parties, but then take you away for at least a half hour. This is portrait time, and quite often the only down time you have all day. We do all sorts of silly things during the portraits to get you to pose without being “posey” (since we pretty much let you be you without direction the rest of the day).
… here are the interpretations of “badass” from three spectacular couples.
More than four years ago, Jesse and I were married at Zukas Hilltop Barn in Spencer, MA. We had an amazing experience and have raved about the place ever since. Christine & Tim also had the honor of being married at Zukas, this past weekend. I think I can speak for them when I say they too had an amazing experience.
Andrea and Joe have such an incredible unspoken bond… one of them is a little quieter than the other (ahem, Joe), but instead of overpowering Joe, Andrea brings out a bit of an extrovert in him. I love it when couples truly complement each other, make the other more comfortable (I mean, is it really that often that you have two photographers stalk you as you walk around a busy town?), make each other more excited about the shoot. We had a great time getting to know Andrea & Joe better, showing them how we shoot, before their Providence wedding at the Biltmore Hotel, and we can’t wait until October 24.
