Jeanne and Tim | A Peabody Essex Museum Wedding

With every couple we meet and photograph there is always one thing that stands out about them more than anything else. With Jeanne and Tim that moment came just moments before we ever made our shutters click, when we met for their engagement session and I asked them what they wanted in their engagement photos. Did they want to be romantic? Sexy? Crazy? They said they wanted to be happy. Awesome. I love that. For me this is the single word that describes them best: Happy. Jeanne and Tim celebrated their wedding at the Peabody Essex Museum, and they enjoyed the beautiful summer day as we visited a few private estates for portraits before heading to the PEM to dance the night away. The disco cover band Booty Vortex totally rocked the house! Often times we are asked to document the wedding for photographers and folks always comment "No pressure eh?" (OK, maybe they don't say "eh") But it's actually a real treat to have such an honor and I mention this not because Jeanne or Tim are photographers, but because Tim is a former documentary film maker who won a student Emmy and several awards for his work! And so now the question is, who filmed their wedding? The one and only Whit Wales! We love working with Whit and you should click here to see his same day edit of their wedding. We also had the pleasure of meeting florist Peter Barter who is an amazing guy with a heart of gold and Jeanne and Tim absolutely loved him!

We loved how easy going these two were and the details Tim thought of (notice the book he's reading). One of the gifts he gave Jeanne was a book full of engagement photos from their e-session with us along with a poem for each image. Towards the end of the evening they opened an ice cream sundae bar which was a perfect way for the guests to cool off and refresh on a hot summer night of dancing. Jeanne and Tim even had "Mr. and Mrs." aprons that they wore to scoop ice cream for their guests.

It was a great day and we loved seeing these two so happy together! We hope you had an amazing trip to Moracco for your honeymoon! Congratulations Jeanne and Tim!  ~Matt and Enna

Le Bleu Featured on The Bachelor

If you were channel surfing last week, or if you're a fan of the show, you probably saw ABC's The Bachelor fly his dates to Anguilla for a week long stay. Enna and I caught the episode and enjoyed it because we are quite familiar with Anguilla - we are fortunate to have photographed several weddings there. We have photographed in most of the locations featured on the Bachelor episode. The island is small enough that we know our way around quite well (okay, that's also partly due to the fact that Enna obsessed about learning every fact about Anguilla that she could before our first visit there... just ask her if you want a recommendation for the best pastries on the island). At our last wedding there, we did a Day After (aka Trash the Dress) photo session at Le Bleu Villas, where last week's Bachelor "Rose Ceremony" was held. Le Bleu and its sister property Indigo (right next door) are absolutely gorgeous venues for a wedding! We can't say enough about Anguilla and the beautiful people who live there. If you're planning a Caribbean wedding and want a place that is luxurious yet off the beaten path, definitely look at this island, and be sure to contact us as we'd love to be your photographers!

Here are a few of our favorite pictures from our photo shoot at Le Bleu, where The Bachelor's Rose Ceremony was held:

Paul & Krystal: simply beautiful wedding in the woods

Why can't more New England weddings be like this? Paul and Krystal's DIY over the top gorgeous wedding was an Experience. We loved every minute of it - Matt concentrated on photographing details, leaving the rest of the wedding day photography to Carla Ten Eyck and JAG Studios.
