What a beautiful and fun couple! I fell in love with Meredith and Damian as soon as I met them, which as it turns out was only a couple of weeks before their wedding. As wedding photographers, one of our greatest fears is being unable to make it to one of our clients' weddings. So for our peace of mind (and because it's fun) we invest a lot of time and effort in maintaining strong relationships with other photographers - if anything were to happen we know that we'd have a large group of talented photographers who we know and trust to step in and do great work in our place. We've never had to tap into this pool to support us (knock on wood), but we've been fortunate to be trusted with our fellow photographers' clients on a couple of occasions. Meredith and Damian's photographer had a health emergency, and I am so grateful and flattered that their photographer trusted us with this wonderful couple. 

Here are some of our favorites of the day - and tell me Meredith's huge smile (which lasted ALL day) is not infectious! :)

Nicole + Chris | a Keene New Hampshire Adirondack Wedding

Ah we've been holding out on you! For those of you in need of a little color to brighten your February day, we are delighted to share this amazing NH wedding. 

This traditional camp near Keene, New Hampshire provided a perfectly stunning backdrop for Nicole and Chris's wedding festivities. The Adirondack lodge, designed by Augustus Shephard, was a magical stage for the three-day extravaganza. We were dazzled by the unique and nostalgic quality to the property - it is off the utility grid, and it is powered entirely by solar power and natural gas. The lodge even still has its original gaslights!

This next picture should tell you everything you need to know about Nicole and Chris... this is the most awesomely amazing and wonderful wedding cake I have EVER seen, and that I ever expect to see. While the adults were in the main tent enjoying the salad course and toasts by the wedding party, little did they know the kids were undertaking a very important mission. The plain white tiered wedding cake needed some dressing up, and boy did these kids step up! Kind of like Murphy's law, they would have continued decorating all night, but when it was time to cut the cake the catering staff carried the cake into the party for all to admire. These kids were so proud of their work, it was just delightful to witness!

The kids couldn't stop admiring (and sampling) their handiwork:

Congratulations Nicole and Chris! We wish you the best in New Delhi... hope we can visit some day!!!

Katie & Ben | A Farm Wedding | New Hampshire Wedding Photography

Many of you know Enna and I moved out of the city and into the quiet of New Hampshire just over a year ago and with the move came the talk of photographing weddings in our new home town. Little did we expect that it would happen so fast and so close to home! Fort Rock Farm is on the other side of the forrest behind our house where I often take our dog Jackson for walks.  As soon as NH wedding planner Leslie Barbini of The Wedding Belle heard that we were in her area she scheduled a meeting for us with this amazing couple and now we are excited to be sharing their images! Katie and Ben live in NYC, and Katie has deep family roots in NH. Her family farm has been in the family for generations and was not only a perfect backdrop for their day, but also a potent symbol of time, tradition, and love. Katie got ready at her parents' house in Rye with the help of of our good friend Joanne of Joya Beauty before heading to the farm for first look photos with Ben. The ceremony was held in their local church and afterward everyone gathered in the barn for blessings, a brief history of the farm, toasts, and an amazing meal. After the plates were cleared and as folks mingled, the center tables were removed, opening the barn up for a dance floor. Our custom designed photobooth, aka The Luxebooth, was set in the tent next to the barn for guests to enjoy and as the sun set Leslie and her team lined the driveway with paper lanterns. It was a perfect fall day for a wedding and we are excited to be sharing these photos with you!

Congratulations Katie and Ben!!!  ~Matt and Enna

Our photobooth, custom designed by us, was on site!
