Engagement photo sessions are always fun for me! The pace of the session is nice and relaxed and I get to know the couple before the wedding day. It was starting to look like we were going to have to call it quits halfway through the engagement session as that rain started to come down lightly as we changed location from the rose garden to the duck pond at forest park.

Luckily when we were ready to start again the rain had stopped and the sun was peaking out. We were able to get about another hour of engagement photos before the night came to an end and darkness started to creep in on us.

Thanks to Shannon and Jamie for be so easy to work with, and I am looking forward to photographing their wedding on August 10th in Wilbraham.

What a perfect day when we photographed Laura and Rich’s wedding on June 22nd at the Salem Cross Inn. The weather was just about 80 degrees, sunny and not humid. Laura and Rich were amazing to work with. Laura remained calm even though her car troubles had her stuck on the Mass Pike for a couple of hours that morning.  The day went so smooth and we were able to take some time to get some wonderful portraits of the both of them throughout the day.

I love the weddings at the Salem Cross Inn, the possibilities are endless for your beautiful New England wedding. From horse drawn carriage rides to a Fireplace Feast (or any other ideas you may have), your wedding is sure to be special, and a day you and your guests will not soon forget. The Salem Cross Inn will allow you to remember your special moment with photos of an elegant New England backdrop.

Of course the food is always wonderful at the Salem Cross Inn. Just as wonderful is the view and the scenery for wedding photography at the Salem Cross Inn. They have plenty of choices outside for your wedding day portraits with interesting scenery, and if you book their barn it certainly gives you the beautiful shabby chic kind of feel.

What an interesting wedding that we were chosen to photograph on June 15, 2013. Eric is originally from Belchertown and is now living in Japan where he meet is bride Chika. Eric,  Chika and her family ( mom and dad, and 2 sisters) flew into Boston on the Monday before their Saturday wedding. We got to meet and do a quick engagement shoot on the Wednesday before their wedding at the house where Eric grew up.

Hats off to Eric’s mom who planned the whole wedding while Eric and Chika were still in Japan. It was quite impressive how she blended some of the Japanese culture into the wedding ceremony and reception.

The  Ceremony was up at the Quabbin Towers and it was a beautiful day and a great view. We then headed out to the Salem Cross Inn for some more photos and the reception.  The food is always great at the Salem Cross Inn and the staff is very friendly. If you are planning on having your wedding in Western Mass the Salem Cross Inn is a Wonderful place for your wedding photography.  The barn and the landscape there is so wonderful, lots of great location for beautiful photos. It really adds to the wedding photography.

For me though it’s always about the photos….

Another super nice couple    Congratulations!

We had some challenges getting the weather to cooperate with us as we had to reschedule Brittany and Conrad’s engagement photo shoot twice before we got the beautiful evening that we ended up.  Well it was definitely worth it as Brittany and Conrad looked great and the weather was perfect.

I been back at Forest park in Springfield a couple of times this spring and I am always very happy with the number of different locations that are beautiful to photograph these wonderful engaged couples. I could easily spend the whole day photographing at forest park weather Wedding couples, engaged or portraits.

I photographed Brittany and Conrad down around the aquatic gardens quite a bit and we headed up to the rose gardens for a few more shots just before it got dark.

I can’t wait to photograph their wedding in October at the Publick House in Sturbridge I am sure it will be a beautiful event!
