Kelli and Mike are planning their wedding for next October, after being together for about 10 years (off and on since high school!) We took advantage of this year’s gorgeous foliage and did their engagement portrait session last month at Shelburne Farms. I loved watching their easy going nature with each other, and their level of comfort and familiarity that comes with having been together for so long. And they both love to have fun!
Kelli and Mike even walk in sync! How sweet is that…
I love making slideshows for couples and finding what I think is the perfect song to fit both their relationship and mood of the portrait session. For Mike and Kelli, this was easy: You’re My Best Friend by Queen:

Rob and Michael’s wedding brought my 2011 season to a close and it was the most perfect celebration to end with. I love this couple so much and I was thrilled that they picked me to photograph their day. Theirs is definitely a love story to be told in pictures and I hope I did them justice!
It was a destination wedding for the Maryland couple and about 40 friends and family members also traveled with them to the tiny town of Brookfield, Vermont for the event. Their church ceremony was held in Randolph and then the reception back in Brookfield at Ariel’s Restaurant (one of the state’s best kept culinary secrets!!!) The dinner was extraordinary, as were the entertaining and heartfelt toasts by friends and the amazing after dinner acoustic trio Bow Thayer and Holy Plow.
Michael and Rob rented “Ye old Forkshop“, the coolest 1815 guest house–across from the equally as cool Green Trails Inn-so I had a ball shooting all of the memorabilia hanging on the walls. The house actually sits on the lake, right next to the famous Brookfield “floating bridge.”
The couple had to leave their German shepherds back in MD but they brought them in spirit by way of their suspenders and socks (as well as their cake topper!)
Their rings were gorgeous, designed with apple trees on the outside, to symbolize the ever growing nature of their relationship. It was the central theme of the whole wedding and all of the details were special lovely.
The best part of Michael and Rob is that they definitely like to have fun AND they have a great joint sense of humor…

Ryan and Aileen were married on a perfect fall Saturday at the eloquent York Harbor Reading Room<in the coastal town of York, Maine. I’m not sure it gets much better than this–gorgeous foliage, breathtaking ocean views and loads of LOVE and romance. It was a memorable wedding!!
We did some stunning portraits along the coast, stopping the private trolley at some famous local spots, including the Wiggly bridge and the Cape Neddick Lighthouse . Then it was onto the Reading Room for an amazing dinner and dancing to a great Boston band, The Rhythm Dogs. Definitely check out the slideshow below to see some fun moments from the reception.
The men looked timeless and oh-so-cool in their suits and striped ties and the women totally rocked in their purple bridesmaids dresses!
I love how Aileen can’t stop smiling and looking at Ryan throughout the ceremony!
And how could I resist taking this!?!
Congratulations, Ryan and Aileen!! Here’s to a lifetime of memories as sweet as your wedding day!!
Enjoy this fun recap of the day’s festivities, to the Sara Bareilles song, The Light:
