10 years ago, I met Lisa for the first time over a cup of coffee. Our meeting was a follow up to her inquiry to see if I’d consider her as a second shooter. Lisa as a recent college graduate, seemed uncertain of what she wanted and was a bit shy as we chatted but as she began working for me, I quickly experienced the characteristics that make her so wonderful.
Sheila and Carlton’s wedding could not have been any cuter. These two sweethearts decided to tie the knot at age 80… what a love story! Their families, friends from church, and even Carlton’s Bridge buddies gathered for a small ceremony to witness the marriage.
The power of a crowd. 143 investors from Main St. to Wall St. now own The Kemble Inn.The mission? To preserve historical properties and create modern, luxurious spaces for sharing. See the amazing renovations that just wrapped up at The Kemble Inn. This share estates property is the largest real estate syndicator in Berkshire County.
Megan and Andrew’s love of the outdoors was beautifully matched with the greenery that decorated the indoor ceremony space and the summer BBQ vibe of the cocktail hour and reception. It was such a special moment watching them enjoy their first look.
There was a point during family portraits, when Ashley’s mom said, “This looks exactly like the inspiration photo she sent me years ago.” Marrying Dylan, her bridesmaids in red, the cow pasture in the distance, rolling mountains, and a bouquet of sunflowers and roses.
Katherine and Ben’s Chesterwood wedding at Chesterwood felt like an elegant dinner party of close family and friends. Guests ranging from age 1 to 88 were able to enjoy the gorgeous property while taking in the beautiful Berkshire mountains surrounding them. The guest count was intimate which made it a perfect, relaxed evening. Katherine and Ben were able to enjoy each other’s company and still spend time with family and friends who had traveled from all around the world to celebrate with them.
Their connection feels like a perfect match. It all began with a first date in Boston, at a favorite restaurant where they stayed out until 4:00 am because they were having so much fun. Anna and Liam have been together ever since. I first met the two of them for their engagement photos when they drove from Boston to the Berkshires to meet with me. I remember thinking then that they were such a fun couple.
Anne grew up in the Berkshires and returns home with Andrew to enjoy summers here. While their wedding was originally planned for an earlier date, they didn’t let COVID restrictions get in the way of delaying their love. As they waited patiently to gather with all their family and friends here in the Berkshires, their life was moving rapidly in California. They welcomed a baby boy who was the most adorable addition to this celebration.
Imagine a tent full of families, who have been waiting to spend time with each other, finally having the opportunity to celebrate! The energy was high and everyone was elated. Thanks to Lauren and Mike’s band, The Band Method, not a single person stayed in their seat during the reception and the dinner tables became a stage for them to entertain on. It was incredible.
They both proposed to each other on the very same day! Eliza and Maggie’s non-competitive, equitable approach to proposing was simple: no plan (re: who would propose first), but on a trip to Asheville with friends, less than 24 hours before Eliza planned to pop the same question, Maggie beat her to the punch and dropped down on one knee on a breathtaking sunset hike on the Blue Ridge Parkway – the same mountain range where their first picture together had been taken, over 3 years prior. Later that night, Eliza proposed back on a hill under the stars, just two girls and their headlamps and a lot of happy tears.
Emily and Andrej were dodging thunderstorms all day at their tented Chesterwood wedding, but not one bit of rain could put a damper on this celebration. In one evening they experienced a week’s worth of weather; rain, clouds, sunshine, fog, and even a rainbow. From start to finish I have enjoyed working with Emily and Andrej. They are fun, easy going, and best of all so in love. All day I just kept saying, “wow” to myself after I’d snap another amazing image of these two prancing around in the rain or holding each other under a rainbow.
Beth and Zak met on a study abroad trip to Italy, but it was actually Beth’s twin sister, Kathy, who first met Zak. Zak and Kathy attended the same college and it wasn’t until a couple years later (in Italy) that Beth and Zak would connect. Beth and Zak, both teachers live in Eastern MA and they spend their time playing board games, hiking, or reading fantasy.
