I recently helped plan and execute a styled shoot that was just featured on Wedding Sparrow this past week! Myself and the other vendors involved worked so so hard to make this whole thing come together, and it is some of my best work to date. Click on the Wedding Sparrow link above to check out the full feature!
This shoot is inspiration for the bride who has a profound fascination with raw and untouched flora. We chose to work in a greenhouse that was built in the early 1900’s and still remains in its original state. Our bride wandered through this peaceful sanctuary, full of small ponds and an abundance of fresh vegetation, wearing a beaded gown from BHLDN and a Victorian ring, restored to it’s original beauty, by Trumpet & Horn. The stationery was dip-dyed in coffee and tea, imbuing unique colors and textures. The overgrown bouquet completed the centerpiece design, which was gracefully paired with handmade organic linens and mismatched vintage silverware from years passed. Surrounded by lush greenery, our blushing bride found the perfect tranquil setting for a quiet moment of reflection.

Amanda, Steve and I met on a hot July morning to take their engagement photos at the Arnold Arboretum in Jamaica Plain. To say I was excited that they were bringing their dog Layla was an understatement… Layla definitely kept us on our toes for the whole session! We would alternate throwing a stick for her to eagerly chase after, then take shots while she was off trying to find said stick. She never caught on to what we were doing (dogs…), but I was told she slept like a baby after our session. Amanda and Steve are the sweetest couple, with great taste in music might I add, and I can’t wait to photograph their wedding next June!
