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!
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!
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!
Julia, a friend of mine at our local church. We have known her for years, and watched her grown up to become a wonderful person. So excited when we heard she was engaged with Jarrod. They met each other while Julia worked with her degree Ohio. They flew back to NH to get this session done as well as finalizing their preparation for their wedding which will be held in Boston, MA.
Bryan & Anita, they have a complete opposite of personality in front of the camera. While she’s a bit shy and reserved, Bryan really put themselves on the spotlight. He did silly stunts, jump, dance, run, which is also favor us to capture these fun shots throughout the session.
After having their sunny engagement session taken in California, it is time to hit the winter theme up in Maine. Vaughan Woods State Park was kind enough for still holding few acres of snowy plain around the forest, despite the fact this is probably the warmest winter ever.
