Kelly + Jack :: engaged

24 May

Hello World! It has been quite some time since I’ve dusted off the old blog! I’m working on a fancy new one thus, my attention had been elsewhere. However!!!! Love is a good (great, amazing, wonderful, breath taking) reason to blog again. It is with great pleasure that I introduce you to Kelly and Jack! Both schoolmates of mine – Kelly and I met overseas in Budapest, Hungary – She was studying for the semester in Romania and Jack and I met in our documentary class the January after i returned from Hungary. A while later I got an email from Kelly saying she was getting married!! (yay!!) And that her groom to be was Jack!! I was so excited – in fact, I still am! It is clear that these two lovely people are in love. A lot of couples that pass in front of my camera are shy, uncomfortable with themselves, and uncomfortable with each other (totally understandable – being photographed is a scary thing sometimes!) But not Kelly and Jack. They just were themselves, fully and truly. It was amazing to watch them just be in front of my lens. It is obvious that they were made for each other as they casually chatted about life, Jack cracked jokes while Kelly laughed, as they climbed a giant fallen tree branch and jack hung upside down from it, and when asked to look right at each other, you could see it, right there in front of you – love. These two are wonderful adventurers who are going to change the world. Shortly after tying the knot this June they are moving to Romania! Watch out world here they come!




jennie + phil :: engaged

25 Jan

World, meet Jennie + Phil!

I have known these two love birds for quite some time now. Phil is a fellow New England-er and Jennie and I became insta-friends on Valentines day five years ago. It has been an honor to watch their relationship grow and blossom into what it is today. While the two of them appear from first glance to be complete and total opposites, the more you get to know them you will see that they simply fit together. Jennie the tall, blond, classy, teacher, very dutch girl-next-door and Phil the Irish-Italian, east-coaster, rowdy, sport-loving, military, mans-man. But like two puzzle pieces, like a good book and tea, like the patriots and the super bowl, like Price William and Kate, they go together. While they are very different, they do share many things. With the exception of when he is watching sports Phil, like Jennie has a quiet, introverted disposition, they have an equal passionate love for all things puppy related, they love Jane Austen, they are kind, loyal friends, and in general just beautiful people and they are both extremely awkward in front of a camera (well Jennie more than Phil).  I am so blessed to know them and to have the distinct honor of being ::in:: their wedding. While I will be busy bridesmaiding it up and will not be taking their wedding photos, I had the pleasure to take their engagement photos. So here they are, enjoy enjoy enjoy.

J + P, I love you both and am so excited to be apart of your wedding day and everything else before/after that.

Two beautifully in love people, a farm, roosters, tomatoes, miles and miles of apple trees, a vintage olive green Saab, and a goat on a table = a successful engagement shoot.

Beth and I shot another wedding together (yay!), and here are the engagement photos from two days previous to the wedding!

My very dear friends Chris and Lauren are FINALLY engaged.

After a long wait and secret planning, and a brilliant idea for the proposal, it happened!

Chris asked to spend the rest of his life with Lauren at the theater company banquet yesterday and thanks to my sneakiness earlier in the day she was totally caught off guard. (you’re welcome)

(Note: Chris was dresses as Donkey Kong and Lauren was dressed as a "red hot mess," which is my opinion totally
suits their personalities to be dressed up as goofy things on the day of their engagement.
Do i sense a themed wedding?....i think so.)

It was wonderful.

I am overwhelmed with happiness for them, my heart sings!

I am honored to be a part of their wedding and so very excited to stand up next to them on their amazing day!

And as of now, I get to stand on the guys side. Watch out boys, here comes the coolest grooms…lady you’ve ever seen!

Watch out for their engagement photos sometime in the near future. Its going to be ballin.

And heres a look at the ring.

Simple and elegant, a perfect fit.

And heres the bride to be

Congratulations my friends

I can’t wait to see you start your lives together.

Lovelovelove, all my love,


Happy Secrets & Chris
