OMG. Where do I begin? Well, we first met Cindi and RJ when they were guests at Nick and Nicole’s amazing Hawaiian wedding. After being a part of such a great wedding, Cindi and RJ decided they too wanted to do a destination wedding… and we were so excited when they contacted us about doing it, of course! We love to travel, and combining travel with our favorite thing in the whole world (shooting weddings) and it’s a perfect match. Autumn was pretty psyched about becoming an international traveler at 9 months.
Each place has its own feeling, and part of the destination wedding photography is finding what the vibe is and capturing it… the colors, the details, the happiness. The nice thing about destination weddings is that no one is driving home after, so everyone just really relaxes and enjoys themselves. No one’s thinking of grocery shopping they have to do the next day; instead everyone’s on vacation together.
Also with a destination wedding, we try and do a day-before or day-after shoot. Cindi and RJ met us early the next morning and we roamed the grounds, and got some neat photos of them outside of their wedding-day attire. Since they’re from Texas (and we’re from Boston), an engagement shoot wasn’t possible… but this still gives them some nice portraits anyway! We’ll post a couple of those photos tomorrow, so check back at 9 am!
So here’s Cindi and RJ’s gorgeous, happy, sometimes silly, always amazing destination Mexican wedding.
Christina and Steph’s wedding at the Mile Away Restaurant in Milford, NH was well-planned and well-executed… you see, Christina is an event planner, and Steph goes with the flow. A perfect match
I could blab on and on about the day, but honestly, I just want to cut to it and show you the photos already. So I’ll do that instead.

How exciting! When I was out on maternity leave, Kellie & James’s wedding was featured on Marry Me at the Beach, an adorable site dedicated to just beach weddings!

Erica and Evan are awesome, the wedding was perfect (and the rain held off!) and we had a great time, as did they. Pardon my lack of additional information, but I have a sleeping baby on my lap!

More on facebook!
As you may remember, we started offering photobooths this summer. I couldn’t be more excited…
To see all the photos, go to our facebook page:
I love this little moment for what it is, a tender expression of love. But I think I love it more because it’s also an expression of relief, and it shows that even on your wedding day – maybe especially on your stressful, busy, super-emotional wedding day – you quite literally begin your life together by leaning on each other.
Erin and Dustin had a gorgeous destination wedding to a resort in Jamaica. However, it was one of those resorts that require that you have their house photographer at your wedding. If your style is on the “untacky” side, these photos might not cut it for you. While their photographer was very very nice and never once got mad at me for doing my own thing, he also made Erin & Dustin do cheeseball things like this:
Erin & Dustin were good sports and joked around and laughed through the whole “photo shoot” with the staff photographer, but the little moment that I captured at the end – which the house photographer did not – is who they really are. And that’s what we aim for with wedding photography. Not super staged craziness, but a brief glimpse into your love and new life together.
It’s right after the ceremony. Your very closest friends, immediate family members, a big Hawaiian officiant, and Ciras Photography surround you. The photographers are snapping away, everyone’s hugging everyone, the Hawaiian officiant is talking with your mom about his wife. And all you see is each other.
That’s why I love this photo. On a wedding day, even in the midst of chaos, (even if it is just mild chaos, because Nick and Nicole’s wedding only had 22 attendees) you can block everyone else out.
We have lots of fabulous photos from this wedding (which you can see here and here) but this one holds a special place in my heart because it’s a real moment, unscripted, unplanned, and completely adorable.
