Lynn and Tom’s Quabbin Engagement Session

Usually when the forecast says it  is  going to pour all day long we reschedule our engagement sessions. There is certainly some added challenges when photographing in the non stop pouring rain. Some of the extra items we needed to bring were towels and extra towels, umbrellas, covers for our lights.

I did wear a raincoat but made a note for the next session in similar conditions to wear my rain pants as we do what needs to be done to get the shot, and if that means lying on the ground then that’s what we do!

We were able to start inside the Quabbin Tower and stay dry for the beginning of the session which I am sure we all appreciated. When we headed outside Lynn and Tom were both real troopers and did whatever we asked to make their photos!

Let’s hear more about their engagement from Lynn:

How long did you date before you got engaged?

We had been dating for over 7 years when he FINALLY asked me to marry him!

What was the Date you got engaged?

December 31, 2016

I immediately said yes , then began to cry

Tell us about the ring/band. Please be as descriptive as possible.

Lam and Ngoc’s wedding! Vietnamese Wedding photography in Boston Massachusetts.

What a full fun day we had photographing Lam and Ngoc’s wedding in Boston this past summer. Our Vietnamese wedding photography day started out early at their house with the gifts to the Ngoc’s family from Lam’s family. I enjoyed how important family was in all of the activities throughout the day.

Next the bride was presented to the groom and we had the first ceremony of the day starting with the readings and lighting of the candles. From there we moved into the Tea Ceremony with all the elders and family involved.

There were a lot of amazing events going on throughout the day, but if you love good food like I do then you would have appreciated the bountiful Vietnamese Brunch. The food all of the family and friends brought to the brunch was simply amazing. If I was not working I would have certainly overeating and needed a nap, but no time for naps on a wedding day!

After the brunch we had time for some bridal portraits of the morning outfits before they all got changed for the afternoon Catholic Mass. Then some great portraits of the Lam and Ngoc after they changed for the afternoon.

From there we all headed over to Saint Mary’s Parish for the second ceremony of the day.  Ryan and I were able to take a short break after the afternoon ceremony and grab some Starbucks and refuel before the evening reception.

We then headed over to Hei-la moon restaurant for the reception. They had built a colorful backdrop to capture photos with all of their guests as they arrived. Once again the food was amazing  and more than we could eat.

The master of ceremonies did an incredible job of making all of the announcements in both Vietnamese and English while maintaining her enthusiasm the whole time.

 

 

Thanks to Ryan Williams for second shooting this long day!

 

Now let’s check a few of the photos from the awesome wedding!

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!!
