Baby Bump Love...

It was such a pleasure to photograph these two Love Birds out on Makonikey last week! They are expecting their first little bundle of joy late this Summer and so excited! I have to say that it was extra wonderful for me to photograph their Maternity Portrait because I too am expecting my first in Autumn, it just brought a whole new special life to the art, knowing what it's like to be "expecting". Thank you both for choosing me to capture such an exciting and wondrous time in your lives!

Congratulations Ashley & Mark!!!

What an amazing weekend of Love, Friends & Family to celebrate the Marriage of this Gorgeous Couple, Ashley & Mark. Within a picturesque Barn, nestled into the rolling hills of Chilmark, we heard countless stories of the wonderful friendships and love Ashley and Mark have created within their lives thus far while dining on lobster and Chilmark Chocolates. It was a beautiful night only to be topped by the Wedding Day in Historic Edgartown. These Love Birds spoke their vows in the Whaling Church to the sound of rain on the brick sidewalks, before enjoying a festive cocktail hour at the Fisher House with a traditional Chinese Lion Dance performance. We ended the night on the harbor, in the Edgartown Yacht Club, where we Dined and Danced the night away! Thank you Ashley and Mark for being so wonderful and including me in capturing your amazing day! I wish you all the happiness that life can bring!
