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!

Thank you both, for letting me be witness to such a wonderful day and capture these photographs for you!

Menemsha Family Portrait!

It was so wonderful to see the Jackson - Linder Family again. I was lucky enough to photograph Pam and Nick's Baby shower over the winter season before this little cutie pie was born. Meeting him and seeing the family again on the Island was such a treat! Thank you Anne for making it all happen! I'm in love with this little beauty boy!

Abel's Hill Family Portrait...

The Finkelsteins are back for another great portrait Session on Abel's Hills. It was a picturesque evening on the beach. We had a cloudy stormy sky, a quick shower and an amazing sunset to work with as our backdrop for a beautiful family. Thank you guys for another great portrait session, and of course the ferry across Abel's pond! 





Lighthouse Family Portrait...

You might recognize this adorable family from last Summer. Their little girl has grown so much and was the sweetest, smiliest little peach that I photographed all summer! Mostly due to her Uncle, "the baby wrangler", who helped make her smile the entire time. Thank you guys for a lovely morning at the Edgartown Lighthouse, I hope to see you all again next Summer!





The Reynolds Family 2017!

It was so great to see this awesome family again this Summer! And of course, meeting the newest addition was a pleasure, he is such a cutie pie. We had a blast running around at Eel Pond and capturing some great shots. I've said this before and I'll say it again, I love photographing families that grew from couples that I photographed on their wedding day! It's just really a wonderful experience. Thank you guys!

The Studness Family is back and this Summer we went out to Quansoo to run around on the Beach and capture these three wild boys running around and being kids! We somehow managed to have them sit and stand still for a couple too! Thanks for another great shoot you guys! I hope to see you again next Summer.




The Wolozin Family 2017

One of my favorite locations and families to photograph on the Vineyard... The Wolozin's! First off their family couldn't be sweeter and more adorable, aaaand the land around their home makes for the most amazing backdrops, I simply can't mess it up! Thank you guys for another great photo shoot! I can't wait to see you again next Summer!





The Viola Family 2017...

Last time I photographed the Viola family they had 1 grandchild... as you can see this family just keeps getting bigger and better! I love it. We had a crazy, wet and fun morning trying to wrangle toddlers, babies and boys and get them to smile. It was my pleasure to see you all again and photograph your family once again. I can't wait until the next time!

The Joiner Family 2017...

It was so great to see these three again this summer. Check out their little cutie pie! The adults had fun running around on the beach and trying to convince her to smile. We had a great shoot out on Tashmoo in Vineyard Haven, Tashmoo is one of my favorite spots on the Island, and getting there is not for the faint of heart; which makes it all the better. Thank you guys for being such great sports! I hope to see you three next summer on the Beach!
