“My whole heart
Will be yours forever,
This is a beautiful start
To a lifelong love letter.”
Sara B, I Choose You

Julianne and Mark are married! This adventurous, fun, silly couple, who met when they both joined a community volleyball team, were married on a gorgeous day in September. The leaves were already changing and the sunshine was thick. Everyone got ready at the same hotel, but I had special instructions that J+M did not want to see each other before the ceremony! We maneuvered our way in and out of the hotel for bridal party portraits, making sure everyone’s windows were closed so no one accidentally snuck a peek!

Jules and her gals were a fun crowd! I felt like I fit right in when I arrived (thanks loves!). Lots of laughing, selfies, stories of childhood and big hugs. And lemonade;)J’s BCBG dress was SO pretty, maybe one of my favorite’s ever? The lace, the sash, and the vintage-like detail were just so gorgeous.

My wonderful friend and second shooter, Tiffany, stuck with the guys and took these next three images of Mark and his men.

Julianne’s flowers by the Greenery were perfect! Daisies are her favorite.

J+M had a generous family friend who let them borrow this amazing car, which was definitely a snazzy addition to the day! Dudes lookin’ snazzy, too. Tiffany took this shot!

Lisa and Julianne have been friends for a very long time. I love this moment!

Their love is the kind of love that involves more winks and giddy smiles than it does the outwardly-mushy stuff. Their ceremony was personal and fun, meaningful and quick! Perfectly them.

Then it was time for portraits. I’m telling you, we had some of the thickest, most colorful, intense sunlight that day! It was perfect and I may have squealed like 15 times.

Their reception was held in the ballroom of the Quonset O Club. J+M pulled some great stunts dance moves during their first dance!

After three heartfelt toasts from Julianne’s best friend, Mark’s brother, and Julianne’s dad, dinner was served and the party started! Music was provided by Red Supreme Productions, fun was provided by the bridesmaids;)

Julianne+Mark, thank you so much for choosing me to capture your wedding! Best wishes, friends! Let’s go fishing together someday.;)

Lots of love,
Stephanie

Stephanie and Dave are engaged and super happy about it!:)No, for real, these two were giggling and lovin’ up on each other our whole session. Last year around this same time, their mutual friends introduced Stephanie and Dave, so autumn is an important time for their relationship! I’m so glad we got to capture some of the lovely colors of the season in between all their cute smiles;)They picked downtown Hopedale for their location, which gave us a ton of options for backdrops. There was a lake (river?), an old mill, and a walking path for when their pup Naomi joined the photos!

S+D, I’m so glad we got connected! It was great to hang out and I can’t wait to photograph your big day this November!

The lovely LeDoux family met me early on a Sunday morning for their fall family session! Juli and Jonah cherish photos of their little family – their smiley 6 month old, Maisy, and 2 fluffy pups – and it was my privilege to be able to have them in front of my camera! It was unusually hot morning, but luckily the Arnold Arboretum had hints of autumn for us to enjoy.

J+J, I feel like we’ve been friends for ages! Your little Maisy love is the sweetest, and I hope you love your photos! <3

  • Tina Meleones-Desimone - These beautiful photographs made me cry! It took me back to when Juli was that age. In fact I am pretty sure if I go through my Juli album there will be several that are very similar o a few of these! Perfect! ❤️ReplyCancel

My seniors have been rocking it in front of the camera this year!! Mindy picked Pegan Hill in Natick, MA for the setting of her senior session. With it’s sunset-y, nature-y goodness, we were both in our element. Mindy is an athletic, fun, gorgeous and determined gal! She has big plans for the future, like going to college and ultimately becoming a labor and delivery nurse. I’m always so grateful when people let me get a little artsier than usual during a session. Mindy willingly agreed to my sometimes crazy ideas and seriously made my job SO easy! Enjoy these photos from our time together!
