Picnic's Rock!

I had some amazing family fun the other day with a great old friend and her chillins'! Ocean park was no match for Nolan and Wyatt her two beautiful boys! Next time Daddy will have to be in the photos too! It was so great because Jessamyn, aka momster, and I hadn't seen each other for years, we chatted up a storm like we had been hanging out all along. Amazing how friends can be so much like family! Check out this dynamic trio...

Thank for coming over you guys!!! It was so nice to see you!

Andrew, Kate, Coco, and Libby...

The Herz Family and I had an awesome time playing at Long Point Beach last week! What a great spot; boardwalks, ponds, the ocean, dune grass, can't ask for much more in a location! Coco and Libby helped me get some great shots of mom and dad, and the whole family too. Thanks for being such a fun family to work with you guys!!

You four are quite the team!

Heather & Paul...

Last Friday we had a blast strolling the back streets of downtown Edgartown, the weather, the light, and the love was perfect! The houses and little paths are so cool right off main. Of course we couldn't pass up the lighthouse and dunes either! These two love birds are getting hitched next spring, check them out!

Heather & Paul...

Thanks for being so awesome you two! I can't wait till next year!!!

What a stellar Wedding we had on Saturday. Everyone was there, the best of the best! Patrie Grace, Jamie Hamlin, Lynda Dandeneau, Cakes by Liz, two of the sweetest love birds ever, my amazing assistant Chrissy, what a pleasure! And man, location, location, location, really, I couldn't have dreamed up a better ticket! I am a lucky girl, but Lynsey and Jay are even luckier; these two are true soul mates through and through. You've seen their engagement portrait, and heard there sweet song, now get a load of this!

Mari & Paul...

     July 3rd, what an amazing day, and what an amazing couple I had the pleasure to get to know and photograph! Mari and Paul fit right in with their awesome and creative personalities, I can only hope to spread the kind of compassion and warmth that Mari and Paul have surrounding them! Not only are they the sweetest of love birds but also artists and humanitarians! On a kitsch note... I LOVE details, and so does Mari, we knew from the start that this was a creative match made in heaven! Martha Stewart eat your heart out! Hehehe. Seriously, Mari hand made most of the decor and it was all gorgeous! Have a look...

Kristen & Chris...

These two love birds were hotter than the weather for each other on Saturday! From West Tis. To Farm Neck and everywhere in between they kissed. It was a very happy and beautiful day for everyone involved. We had some laughs over our names too; my lovely assistant on this most jovial day just happened to be named Chrissy, and I go by Kristen or Kris. Needless to say there were some giggles and head turns! We had a blast and it shows...

Thank you both so much for including us in such a spectacular day in your lives! Congratulations and have fun!!!!

Karen & John...

A fantastically Nautical Wedding, from the Harborview to the Boathouse and everywhere in between. What's a better nautical locale than Edgartown? Karen and John even had John's boutonniere made from a real fly here at coops bait and tackle. Karen and John were a blast to photograph, and sooo in love! It was easy as pie to grab these awesome shots!

love is our lifeboat...

Blue Hour on the Harbor...

Thank you so much for letting me be part of such a wonderful day in your lives! I really enjoyed it!



Kate & Alex

Two Love Birds that know how to have fun at the beach!!! Kate and Alex were a blast to work with, we went up and down Lambert's Cove Beach and State road searching out fabulous backdrops! When my subjects are willing to try anything and have fun the photos and our experiences are always amazing! I have been so blessed to work with only awesome and willing couples this year! Thanks so much for being so sweet. You two rock!

Can't wait for your Wedding!!!

Abby & Chris

It's great to be able to sneak on to "private beaches", Abby, Chris and I managed to get onto Quansoo the other day. The weather was crazy; from thick fog to bright sun and back again. I love that kind of weather; it's just pure vineyard! Abby and Chris brought there pups along too, which was so fun! If they are part of your little family they should always be part of your shoot! Thanks for muck walking with me!!! Can't wait for the big day!
