Nicole & Brandon Rustic Wedding, Apple Orchard – Raymond, Maine

Meet Nichole, whose obsessed with Apple tree for some reason. Well, after photographing their engagement session, and their wedding at the apple orchard farms (Thompson’s Orchard & McDougal’s Orchard), we definitely get obsessed immediately as well! The trees, the blooms, the color, and everything is so whimsical. (To be honest, we had a little regret, why we didn’t have our wedding at the apple orchard instead. Seriously).

Followed by the reception at their beautiful and sweet log-house. Nichole and Brandon decorated the house, built the wooden dining table and the photobooth themselves! Such a craftmanship. Easily, it became one of the most memorable weddings we ever did :)

Wedding Style Shoot Joanna – Wagon Hill Farm, Dover NH

We were thrilled to have the opportunity to collaborate with other local talents to make this photo-shoot happened! We will do more of this in the future, not only to help to promote other local business but also to push our creativity and sparks a wedding inspiration to you. Meanwhile, enjoy our first gallery :)

Darika & Sam – Backyard Wedding – Lee, NH

Home sweet home never been as sweet as to celebrate your own wedding there. One perk of having a huge front and backyard is you can have all day wedding without being worried about the “overage” charge. This wedding held within 6 acres of private property, with a huge tent and even bouncing house at the end of the day. Although it might take Sam the entire weekend to mow the lawn, it is definitely worth it.

Beth & Dave Wedding – The Oaks, Somersworth, NH

We met with the mother of the bride from the beginning, arrange everything together until we finally met with Dave & Beth on their wedding day. It is not that common for the mother to arrange everything, but everything ended very well. We got to know Beth and Dave, such a low-profile and sincere persons.

Alicia & David Wedding – Sheraton Harborside, Portsmouth NH

Alicia & David Wedding - Sheraton Harborside, Portsmouth NH | Boston & NH Wedding Photographers - STOVILA // Modern Professional Affordable 21

We met Alicia & Dave on the dance floor of her brother’s wedding the year before. Truly our honor to be able to photograph their wedding as well, we felt like their super extended family :) — same goes to the beautiful venue of Sheraton Portsmouth felt like our second home, as this is our third time to be back, although we’re not on their preferred vendor list (we probably should try to apply..). Since they didn’t have time for their engagement session, they decided to have their Post-wedding session, which will be coming up soon on our blog!

Ashleigh & Peter Wedding, Private Residence NH

Ashleigh & Peter Wedding, Private Residence NH | Boston & NH Wedding Photographers - STOVILA // Modern Professional Affordable 24

A very beautiful wedding on the backyard of Ashleigh & Peter. Especially to observe the mixture of 3 different cultures & traditions in this wedding (Jewish, Russian and American).

Most of the setups are DIY, and all vendors in this wedding are truly the best. Hats up to all of them! :)

Helen & Brandon Wedding, Hale Reservation, Westwood MA

Helen & Brandon Wedding, Hale Reservation, Westwood MA | Boston & NH Wedding Photographers - STOVILA // Modern Professional Affordable 26

Talking about being simple, how about this: No make up, no hair-styling, no jewelries, and less than 10 minutes of “getting ready.” It’s like talking about being comfortable and be yourself to the next level.

Pon & Grace Wedding, Executive Court Banquet, Manchester NH

Pon & Grace Wedding, Executive Court Banquet, Manchester NH | Boston & NH Wedding Photographers - STOVILA // Modern Professional Affordable 26

Intercultural wedding always holds its unique value and experience. Not only for the wedding couple, Pon & Grace, but also for the entire family(s) and guests. Different language, culture, and tradition are things that can hinder the unity of marriage, although it all comes back to our own commitment and attitude.

Grace always dreamed of having the traditional Tea Ceremony in her wedding, and it is definitely a new thing for Pon’s family. Well, you can guess how cute the ceremony went :) – but it’s all good.

Bethany & Dave Wedding, Glimmerstone Mansion, Cavendish VT

Bethany & Dave Wedding, Glimmerstone Mansion, Cavendish VT | Boston & NH Wedding Photographers - STOVILA // Modern Professional Affordable 35

This is one of the most memorable weddings we had. As we know already that they’re a power couple, this is also our first barn wedding and our first wedding with firework exit. Oh well, challenge accepted, and sure enough, the photos are well worth the effort. The Glimmerstone Mansion also such a fascinating place! We can’t get enough to photographed this venue inside out. Even the getting ready room is so well lit and very generous with natural light.

Congratulation Bethany & Dave, may your new adventure only gets better and higher from this point forward.

Anita & Bryan Wedding, Frank Jones Center, Portsmouth NH

Anita & Bryan Wedding, Frank Jones Center, Portsmouth NH | Boston & NH Wedding Photographers - STOVILA // Modern Professional Affordable 46

Power couple! Anita and Bryan. You can feel the positiveness radiating from both of them :) They are cheerful, fun and have a teen spirit. We mean… well, just go through this gallery until you see them at the reception. It is exploding!

This is the second time we cover a wedding at Frank Jones Center, as it is the only venue that can hold up to 800 people. Indonesian weddings have a quite large amount of attendance in general, so the options are kinda limited to pick a venue. That’s OK though, this place is elegant and hold the crowd pretty well.

Julia & Jarrod Wedding, Spirit of Boston, MA

Julia & Jarrod Wedding, Spirit of Boston, MA | Boston & NH Wedding Photographers - STOVILA // Modern Professional Affordable 7

Congratulation Julia & Jarrod! This is their second reception. As they both live in Ohio, they already had married and had celebration over there; but since New Hampshire is where Julia grown up and because her parents also still live in this state, they want to celebrate together with all friends and families here as well in New England. They pick Spirit of Boston as their venue. It’s a beautiful triple deck ferry. Enjoy the pictures :)

Alyssa & Tucker Wedding, Mountain Top Inn, Chittenden VT

Alyssa & Tucker Wedding, Mountain Top Inn, Chittenden VT | Boston & NH Wedding Photographers - STOVILA // Modern Professional Affordable 1

Up in Vermont again! This gorgeous State is like our second home. We love this Vermont so much, and we always spend another day to explore the city every time we have a gig here.

Mountain Top Inn is also a beautiful place. They have multiple point of interests which you can enjoy. Lake, mountain view, indoor outdoor activity, horse riding, you got them all! Alyssa and Tucker definitely made a great choice here :) and they are such a laid back couple. We had so much fun at the wedding, although the weather was brutal (upper 90’s) but we made it through the night. At the end of the day, they’re getting married, and (drunk) dancing all night long. It’s all good!

Franklin & Della Wedding, Dover – Portsmouth, NH

Franklin & Della Wedding, Dover - Portsmouth, NH | Boston & NH Wedding Photographers - STOVILA // Modern Professional Affordable 18

Della & Franklin has been in Long Distance Relationship for a while, and it is exciting to know they are finally tying the knot!

Similar like us, they’re separated as far as half the world away: United States and Indonesia. It is never been easy. Communication, commitment and trust play a big role to maintain a long distance relationship. Thank God we have all this technology to bring us closer, even the time-zone messed up our schedule for sure :)

This is a rather simple and quick wedding. They have their ceremony at their local church, and went straight to Chinese Buffet to celebrate their wedding. No cake cutting, no dance, no speech, nothing… straight to the business: Lunch! Well, that worked well for us too!

Michael & Annie Wedding – Sheraton Harborside, Portsmouth NH

Michael & Annie Wedding - Sheraton Harborside, Portsmouth NH | Boston & NH Wedding Photographers - STOVILA // Modern Professional Affordable 3

We started 2016 with this Winter Wedding of our beloved friends, Michael & Annie.

We’ve seen it all; since they started dating each other, gathered all the courage to talked about marriage, the proposal, went through pre-marital counseling for months and months, clueless and frustrated with planning a wedding timeline, and here they are today as a husband and wife.

For us, to be able to bear witness (and capturing) one of the most important points of their life is  always a privilege. What’s left in our prayer now, is for them not to fight each other while walking through the kitchen aisle at IKEA.

Ashley & Jay Wedding – Waterworks Cafe, Manchester NH

Ashley & Jay Wedding - Waterworks Cafe, Manchester NH | Boston & NH Wedding Photographers - STOVILA // Modern Professional Affordable 24

Do you know there’s another way to celebrate New Year? Getting married!

Although it was on Thursday, it didn’t matter; party must goes on. It’s quite an experience for us to cover a New Year’s Eve wedding as we never had that before. We saw a lot of NYE props at the photo booth, bunch of trumpets. The excitement among the guests also pretty rad, on which we think it’s the euphoria of the NYE. However we didn’t stay until past-midnight as our coverage ended at 10:30PM, but it’s all right since we had a chance to celebrate the NYE with our friends and family after that :)

Ashley and Jay are laid-back and a wonderful couple, while the groomsmen were hilarious and quite a ‘trouble-maker’ (in a good way) -we had a lot of fun with them. Ashley and Jay also have a little Son, who gave a lot of headache to Bridesmaid in getting him into the Tux during preparation. Another thing to mention is, Waterworks Cafe is a very nice and classy venue. Would love to come back there again sometimes ;)

Got a Minute?
