Svetlana & Gary | Married! 09.04.10 | Mansion in the Woods Wedding | Massachusetts Wedding Photographer

Svetlana and Gary had a beautiful, intimate outdoor ceremony at the Mansion in the Woods in Douglas, MA! Despite the name, I was not expecting this place to be as fantastic as it was. Overlooking the pristine Whitin Reservoir, it had absolutely awesome views — and it was the most perfect day for a wedding. Their ceremony was short and sweet and then they quickly moved onto drinks, dinner & dancing. My assistant, Brandon, and I had an interesting time, as almost everyone but us spoke Russian!

Hannah & Matt | Engaged! 08.27.10 | Walden Pond Engagement Session | Massachusetts Engagement Photographer

How is it that I am lucky enough to hang out with people like Hannah and Matt every day for my job? It blows my mind sometimes. I started talking to Hannah at the end of July about their July 2011 wedding (which I am also photographing! yay!). I could tell right away that they were a super cute couple (they’re getting married in their garden – how much cuter does it even GET?) and so we planned an engagement shoot for the end of August. We spent the morning first in the most delightful little pick-your-own farm, and then headed to the Codman Estate to take some photos of Matt’s 1981 Mercedes (that he converted to vegetable oil!) before taking a walk around Walden Pond, which was MAGICAL. Hannah and Matt met in San Francisco while both working on the No on Prop 8 campaign, which really struck a chord with me. Awesome, awesome couple.
