Meaghan & Steve’s Wedding – Danvers, MA

 

I love Meaghan & Steve :)  These two are good friends of mine, and it was so wonderful for me to be able to attend and shoot their wedding this summer.  They got married at the home of a friend in Danvers on a cold and rainy summer day, and had such a fun and joyful party.  I’m excited to share a few of my favorite photos…

So, the house where they got married is this huge home decorated in a very ornate and eclectic style.  I saw people curiously walking by this painting of a cat-man all day, but Anne Ruthmann (who came to shoot with me) captured this priceless moment.  I *love* this photo!!

The stained glass wall in the bathroom was so cool.  I asked my assistant Elizabeth to catch Meaghan getting into her dress through the glass, and it turned out awesome!

Meg and her brother just before he walked her down the aisle.  I believe this is the moment when I started bawling my eyes out!

I love the look she gave Steve here when she got to the end of the aisle (next 2 photos by Anne)

My brother (in law) officiated the ceremony.  It was the first wedding we’ve ever “worked” together.  It was kinda fun having him and my sister there, along with a bunch of close friends.  Totally strange to have your worlds collide like that, but still fun!

Anne came along for this wedding in part to help me out, but also to have some fun and try some new things and take some risks.  She brought a tilt/shift lens and I absolutely love how the images turned out!

I rarely like shots of me while I’m working, but Anne caught this one, and I actually like it :)

Some of the guys were pretty distracted during portraits because there were chickens running around.  Boys like to chase chickens, apparently.

Haha!  This is SO Meg & Steve!!  Never a serious moment with these two, I tell ya.

I love their cake toppers!  I believe they were made by one of their grandfathers, years and years ago – made out of nuts!  Totally cute!

There’s that tilt/shift lens again.  I love the feel!

Meg’s rings are so pretty and delicate!

First dance

First dance courtesy of Anne’s fisheye lens.  The dance floor was in a new room on the house, that’s still under construction.  All the exposed wood was so interesting to photograph, and also very “them.”

Steve looking oh so handsome

You and Anne captured so many genuine moments here…I love how natural they are. Steve’s face looking at his bride in the first dance shot is so tender. And her scrunched-nose face is precious!
