This is supposed to be their engagement session… however time is not always in our favor. As it got closer to their wedding day, things were getting busy and busier. So one day they emailed us and suggest to do their “engagement session” after their wedding. Well, why not? Now they are definitely more comfortable in front of the camera after being photographed for 8 hours on their wedding day. So we had fun at Fort Foster, Kittery ME – although we didn’t get a chance to watch the sunset and to eat Pork BBQ like how we supposed, every time we visit this place.
The only challenge is to determine what category is this? Engagement? Portrait? Wedding? Family? Or all of them? Well…
Late summer this year, we were lucky that we still able to enjoy all the spring colors. They drove all the way from Massachusetts to Portsmouth NH for their engagement session. Tim is the kind of guy you will immediately can easily connect (so bubbly) – and with Nicole they really make it as a cute couple. We were strolling the Prescott Park before we headed to downtown area under the sun.
A little side-note, Tim also running Simply Complex Media Productions (SimComMedia) that produce commercial film, photography and music. Check out his talents :)
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.
It was a fun day with Mike & Emelly at Boston. We started from Charles River, Boston Public Garden, and the infamous Boston Fan Pier. From the lineup of geese to the romantic evening city light. We also had dinner break at B.Good and oh my… they are so good indeed! Although it was quite a long session (we ended close to midnight) it was time well spent.
In case you’re wondering, the beautiful hairpieces in this photo is made by: Risha. Check her website! :)
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!
When apple trees are blooming, it is visually way more delicious than the fruit itself. Definitely was a sweet spot for Nichole and Brandon to have their engagement session taken. Who ever knew that somewhere in the quiet side-road of Springvale, ME there’s this peaceful farm with such a beautiful gallery. We will have their “apple” wedding coming soon, so stay tuned!
Congratulation Irene for your graduation! Best is yet to come, and good luck on the land of never-ending bills as you are adulting. No turning back :) – It was raining when we had the session, but that’s what the newer weather-sealed lenses and camera are made for right?
Grace & Harry from Indonesia. Flew over 24 hours to embrace the cold of New England during winter with this gorgeous dress. Talking about dedication to get the best photographs for their engagement session :) If you must know how cold… it was about 15°F with fairly strong amount of breeze.

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! :)
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.
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.
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.
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.
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 :)
Just about time until we finally have a chance for a session at two of our most favorite parks: Boston Common, MA (and Pier Parks, East Boston).
Although it was pretty crowded that day, because there was a music concert nearby, we managed to squeeze them into the picture without disrupted by public. Boston also has its value to them since it is part of their daily commute (before); and them being so busy with career transition, wedding and marriage preparation (technical and spiritual stuff), we just want to make sure that this engagement session is well worth time spending. Cheers for this young couple!
