I think it is about time I post some photos from Corie and Gary’s engagement session at Quabbin since I already photographed their wedding.  Which was amazing by the way, but I will post more on that soon!

 

How did the two of you meet?
I worked for Gary as a secretary while in Nursing school. We knew each other for a couple of years before we started dating.

Tell us about the proposal. Please be as descriptive as possible.
Gary gathered all of our closest friends and family on Christmas Eve. He gave me gifts to open, and the last was a box, wrapped in a box, in other box, and so on. The last box was an empty ring box. I looked at him with a puzzled look. He then said, “
are you looking for this?” He got down on one knee, and asked me to marry him in true Gary fashion. He said I was the only one who could put up with him!

What was your immediate thought/reaction when he or she asked for your hand in marriage?
I was excited, and kind of shocked. I remember shaking like crazy!

What was the most memorable part of the proposal?
All of the boxes I had to unwrap to get to the ring box…they were all dirty and gross from his business. I was NOT expecting a beautiful ring!

Tell us about the ring/band. Please be as descriptive as possible.
My ring is absolutely perfect, and I was amazed that he choose exactly what I wanted. We had never discussed rings before, so I was quite surprised. He spent a few months creating several different rings with the jeweler, and kept saying none of them were “sparkly enough”. The jeweler called him one day and told him he had the perfect stone. Its an antique from an estate. They placed the large diamond in a halo setting with two bands of smaller diamonds. I receive compliments on it nearly everyday!

Wow what a ring!

Why did you choose this particular location for your engagement shoot?
We knew we wanted outdoor photos, and the Quabbin is gorgeous, and has so many different locations.

Please tell us about the proposal.

I am an Irish step dancer and I was performing a March show for St. Patrick’s day. As I got off stage in full costume he got down on his knee and asked me to marry him in front of the whole crowd. He knew how important dance was the me and he wanted to incorporate that into the proposal.

Please tell us about the ring.

The ring he gave me was a beautiful halo style ring with diamonds down the sides. He says he wanted to get the halo because I’m his angel.

Why did you choose the location for your engagement session?

We chose to go to look park for our engagement shoot because it was a gorgeous wooded background and we found the perfect day to do it while it was snowing.

I first photographed Melanie and Paul last fall at the Poet Seat Tower for their engagement session. I could tell right away they were both very comfortable in front of the camera and no doubt photogenic. They both made photographing their engagement session easy work for me and we lucked out with a beautiful fall sky.

Photographing their wedding was a lot of fun! We started the day a Paul’s Parent’s house and with the guys and it was great they were able to take the corvette for a spin and some photos. From there we headed to Paul and Melanie’s house where Melanie and the Bridesmaids where getting ready. From there it was off to The Delaney House in Holyoke  for some more photos and the ceremony. The Delaney House has a hidden gem in Holyoke Massachusetts Wedding Photography with their beautiful Ceremony site tucked away off to the side of the venue.

The real treat of the evening, besides the beautiful ceremony at The Delaney House, happened to be Melanie and Paul’s first Dance. They Choreographed their first dance with class and preformed equally as well. They were both light on their feet and graceful. It was truly stunning to watch and fun to photograph.

There are a lot of beautiful wedding venues in Western Massachusetts to photograph at and The Delaney House certainly fits in with the best of them. The weather really couldn’t have been much better for their wedding day. Sunny and warm with no rain. They had originally thought about the following Saturday for their wedding date but changed it to September 27th due to conflicts with family scheduling. The following Saturday brought down so much rain that am I sure they feel they made the correct choice of dates.

 

Congratulations to Melanie and Paul!

Greg Moss Photography at a Salem Cross Inn Wedding!

As a Western Massachusetts Wedding Photographer  something I love is when a bride and groom make time for their photos and they say, hey we would really like to do a photo over here, we like this item and incorporate it into our wedding photography. That is perfect let’s go make so memories.  That’s what happened with the photo below, Leah said I would really like to incorporate a photo with us in front of the barn at night. That when I say you bet! I am at a wedding to document and make lasting memories for the bride and groom so I am all about making any photos they would like.

 Photographing Western Massachusetts and the Salem Cross Inn is always a joy. From the rustic scenery to the tasty prime rib it is a great experience.  Photography is about lighting and location, well I can control the lighting and with a location like the Salem Cross Inn the photos are going to come out beautiful, and of course the brides are always beautiful with Leah being no exception. 

Next I begin design of their 12 x 16 Italian hand made wedding album. Their wedding story is going flow so well in the pages of the hand crafted book. From the getting ready photos to the last images out by the barn I am sure their album will look amazing and becoming a lasting family heirloom for them.

The first shot of the photo below was photo bombed by some of the guests having fun, I left that one out but it was definitely a fun group of guests.
