Amber and Anthony’s Crestview CC Wedding photography.
I’ve got another fabulous wedding for you guys today! The (happy couple consists of Amber and Anthony, two people that anyone would love to know.
Let’s hear about some of the details of the wedding day from Amber.
How did Anthony pop the question?
Took me for a hike and had a collage of photos of us set up, my favorite flowers, lights in the trees and logs that spelled out “marry me?” Along the path
What advice would you offer to other couples planning a wedding
Try to think when making purchases whether or not you will ever use it again or whether it will get thrown out? Try not to place too much emphasis on things people won’t remember later and try to remember not everything will go as planned and all those little glitches don’t matter once you marry your best friend
What photography-related advice would you offer to a couple?
Do something different that is personal to you, take night photos and photos of people dancing!
Did you see each other before the wedding? If not, did you like waiting or would you have rather done it differently? Tell me why or why not!
We waited to see one another and it made the experience that much more special for me
Everything you think you might need for last minute touch ups, clothes/change of shoes

Felicia and Jake’s Aqua Turf Club Wedding.
Hi gang! Welcome back to my blog.
I always love photographing weddings. There’s so much love in the air and the bride and groom spent so much time carefully planning all the details. It was not any different for Felicia and Jake’s wedding, either!
The wedding and reception were at the Aqua Turf Club. They danced to their first song All of me – John Legend , which was played by DJ Baltazar.
The bride’s dress was seriously gorgeous, too. And I’m not just saying that!
“I bought my dress from Kleinfelds in NYC. It was Eve of Milady. It was the first dress I tried on!”
We had a lot of fun taking wedding pictures, as well. They decided to not see each other until Felicia was walking down the aisle. The emotion we captured in Jake and in Felicia’s son, was truly priceless!
How did Jake pop the question?
Jake asked me opening day (9-10-2015) at Gilllette Stadium Patriots vs Steelers football game. It was half time and it was pouring rain, he asked me if I wanted to get food. My mom and step dad were there and he said let’s take a picture. I posed for the picture and Jake got down on one knee and asked me to marry him. By far best day ever!! Oh and by the way I am a Steelers fan and Jake a Patriots fan!
Walking down the aisle and the entire ceremony. It was everything I imagined and more! Being introduced for the first time was awesome along with first dance! Getting to have quality time together (husband and wife) during reception while we took photos was great because we were able to take the whole experience in !
Best day of my life!!!
Enjoy every moment because it flies by!
The best vendor we hired by far was our photographer ! Greg Moss went above and beyond throughout the whole process. Always cared about what we wanted! Very helpful, professional and great to work with. Pictures came out amazing!!!! Greg’s questionnaires helped organize everything. We met with him as well to go over the timeline. He was always available to go over everything.

Alicia and Mike’s wedding Longmeadow Mass Wedding Photography at the Twin Hills Country Club
Twin Hills CC was a gorgeous place to photograph Alicia and Mike’s wedding. Amazing scenery and a helpful staff, you just can’t beat it.
Let’s hear from Alicia on some of her details of the wedding day.
We met at Samuel’s in downtown Springfield, MA
Michael asked me at our favorite spot Black Birch Vineyard in Southampton, MA. It is our favorite spot in the summer to go to and enjoy a glass of wine and some good music.
The first look was one of my favorite moments. It was time for just Michael and I to see each other and take some pictures together. I was great to see his reaction of how I looked by ourselves with no one around.
We have been together for four years
Perfect. I wouldn’t change a thing. Everything went so smoothly from beginning to end. Twin Hills Country Club did a great job on making everything run smoothly and I didn’t have to worry about a thing.
Enjoy every minute of your special day. Something will go wrong. Don’t let it get to you because the time goes by so fast!!
Take photo advise from your photographer, ask them what you think is best. They are the professionals they know how to make photos look great.
I got my dress from Bridal Heirlooms in South Hadley, MA Designer: Casablanca Style #1975 I knew I wanted straps and all lace. I tried on few different styles, but when I tried on my dress I knew it was the one. I didn’t want to take it off.
Yes we did a first look. I wouldn’t have done it any differently. I was happy that I got all my bridal party and family photos done before the ceremony so I could enjoy all my company at cocktail hour.
Just make sure to have your wedding party all together a least a half hour before photos so your aren’t running around looking for people. You want to save as much time as possible!!

Mackenzie and Ben’s wedding story! Forest Park Wedding Photography
Well hi again, everyone!
Let’s give it up for one fabulous couple, who just so happen to be newlyweds. Congratulations, Mr. and Mrs. Manley!
I absolutely loved photographing MacKenzie and Ben’s wedding on 10-8-2017 at First Church of Christ in Longmeadow and Union Station in Northampton.
Even better is there story of how they met and how Ben popped the question. I will let MacKenzie tell the story.
One seasonably warm day in March, my girlfriends and I were out on the town in Manhattan. Because of the wonderful weather, everyone was out and about on one of the most charming pedestrian streets in the whole city. With drinks in hand, my friends and I were approached by a handsome group of men,. After a long evening of imbibing, I exchanged phone numbers with the most charming of the bunch, Ben. After a dozen more dates, including museums, dinners, excursions, and more – the rest was history!
One wet and wintry day in January of 2015, MacKenzie and Ben began their New Year’s resolution on the right foot. They woke up early, made their traditional pre-race breakfast, and laced up their running shoes. With the bride-to-be’s aunts in tow to cheer them on, they headed to Prospect Park in Brooklyn to begin what would be their monthly half marathon. A cold, soggy, and fairly miserable two hours later, MacKenzie and Ben crested the hill that would lead to the last .1 of the race. Who knew that miserable would quickly change to most memorable day of their lives? At first, MacKenzie thought, “Wow, how nice! My friend Meg came to cheer me on and she even made a sign!” As she rounded the next bend, she thought, “Holy cow! Kyle came all the way from Harlem to hold a sign that says, ‘Will!’ “Who’s Will,” she thought , “and how come he came all this way to cheer him on?” Soon, she reached yet another of her closest friends, Sophie, who came all the way from Baltimore with a sign reading “You!” MacKenzie was in total shock, but now things were starting to click. As they neared the finish line, MacKenzie’s best friend, Michelle, was waiting for her with the “Marry” sign, cheering them on. As they crossed the finish line, Ben unzipped his running jacket to display his shirt that read the word “Me” on it as he got down on one knee. With more friends and family there at the finish to celebrate this spectacular day, nothing could have been more perfect. Lots of champagne drinking ensued.
We spent a lot of time trying to make our big day feel special and personal in lots of different ways. We felt like this was most obvious during our ceremony. All of our readings were carefully chosen – one from the Bible, one from literature, and one call-and-response blessing where we encouraged all our guests to participate. A longtime friend of ours, who is a trained opera singer, graced us with her singing. We also lined the wall of the church with large photos of our parents and grandparents wedding photos showing generations of love. It was everything we hoped it would be.
Take moments during your big day to stop and just look around. You are surrounded by people who love you. It’s easy to get caught up in all of the goings-on, so look around at your guests enjoying themselves, look at the room that you spent so much time making special, and really try and take in the day. It all goes by so quickly, so you want to remember those little moments!
Make your lists! If there are specific things and moments captured, make sure you let your photographer know. Also, time flies, so it’s better to have your photographer for more hours than you think you need.
My dress was found in a little shop in South Hadley Called Bridal Heirlooms. I was lucky enough to have my mother and grandmother with me. We had visited a number of shops throughout the day, but from the moment I walked out of the dressing and my mother put her hand over her mouth with a gasp, I knew this dress was the one. With a satin, rushed bodice and a elegant lace skirt – the dress took my breath away. My favorite part, however, was the self-belt, lined with crystals and pearls
Greg was an absolute delight to work with. Throughout the planning process, he was organized, diligent and a great listener. He captured every detail that we requested without us even knowing he was there! From the planned photos, to the candids, each photograph was thoughtful and beautiful.
We planned a first look at a local park prior to the ceremony. While it would have been very special for us to have seen each other for the first time at the church, I am glad we had the extra time for photographs prior to the wedding actually beginning. Because of this, we were able to wind down before the reception began and reminisce about the wedding ceremony along with enjoy a few drinks with our bridal party. It made the day a lot less hectic, so I would recommend this for other brides and grooms.
Have all your bags packed and ready to go and give yourself plenty of time! Greg was great in giving us tips prior to the day beginning. He wanted to photograph the details first so we had everything ready for him. While he was doing that, we finished up our makeup and then let the group shots begin! It was a very smooth process with the help of Greg!
