Joanna & Joe’s MASS MoCA wedding was absolutely stunning. It was a really intimate wedding, with only 30 guests. It was also my first full-day wedding of the year. = )
This fall, I have had several fun engagement sessions with couples whose weddings I’m photographing in 2023.
Over time, I’ve realized more and more that the experience I help to create on someone’s wedding day is more than half of what I do for people…
Recently, I had the pleasure of photographing two weddings at Chesterwood, a gorgeous Berkshire venue that was once the summer estate of Daniel Chester French in Stockbridge, MA.
This Fall, I had the pleasure of photographing Fall for Dance at New York City Center. This was the first time I made photos of a full show with a live audience for this festival, and it was really fantastic to photograph the show in its full and vibrant entirety (I photographed the 2020 performances during the pandemic without an audience, and last year, I worked with Nel’s video team.)
It’s really exciting to be here, and you can really sense the energy that everyone is in work mode. All the artists rehearsing and choreographing, Nel’s team filming and editing, me personally photographing and meeting editing deadlines. It’s exhausting and exhilarating at the same time.
I’ve been planting seeds of calm, enthusiasm and love through the last few years, and now, the fruits of my labor are appearing in every project, relationship and process. The feedback I’ve been receiving from clients is proof of what I’m trying to put into the world.
It’s no secret that I LOVE weddings in the Berkshires. A Berkshire wedding has a sense of ease and beauty. The natural surroundings contribute to the energy of the day. Every couple I have photographed in the Berkshires have had weddings that feel true to them and their style.
When we first talk about your wedding, I’ll ask you a bit about your family. And weeks before the wedding, I send each couple a form to fill out to share these ideas with me… I include space for a very important topic: “Tell us a little about your family.”
Emily & Josh were married in the beautiful Berkshires. Their rehearsal dinner was at Berkshire Botanical Garden and the wedding ceremony was at The Mount.
