I have known Megan since she was a little girl which made this wedding so special to be a part of. Megan and Isaiah had a fall wedding planned, but as the world changed, so did their wedding plans. However, those new plans turned out to be the most perfect plans. Megan and Isaiah were surrounded by the love of their wonderful friends and family who all got together as a team and made this day amazing! I am so happy I was able to be there to capture all that went into this beautiful wedding day.

Brendon and Tess | 4-5-19 | Wedgewood Granite Rose https://www.oceanflowerphoto.com/blog/2019/4/brendon-and-tess-4-5-19-wedgewood-granite-rose-NH-wedding-photohgrapher I knew Tess from work and knew she had gotten engaged right around Christmas. While coming home from an appointment in Boston, I passed a beautiful scene of Christmas lights, snow and old fashioned light posts. I knew I wanted to do a photoshoot there, and Tess and her new finance came to my mind. So I texted her and asked her if they would want to brave the freezing cold and take some pictures there. Tess and Brendon were adventurous and up for the challenge. When I say it was cold, it was freezing, like single digits!!!!

 Well that night started our "photographer-client" relationship, a relationship that is  laid back but we get the job done while having a blast at the same time!  This comfort with each other flowed right over into their amazing wedding day. We had many conversations leading up to this event, so I knew exactly how the day would flow, and it was just perfect. You see, Tess's first wedding that she had ever been to was her own!! She had nothing to base this experience on, and she and Brendon planned a beautiful day in spite of this!!

Scroll down below for a slideshow highlighting their day (be sure to watch it in HD quality).

Congratulations Tess and Brendon, I look forward taking more pictures of you both!!

And.....it did rain....for about three minutes and then it passed! Surrounded by water with the beautiful skyline of Boston in view, we were able to get some great shots, of course it helped that Sasha was an absolutely stunning bride, and of course William looked quite dapper himself. Surrounded by close family and friends, Sasha and William united in marriage in a beautiful, intimate setting, and I was more than pleased to be able to help capture the memories of their wonderful day!  Congratulations William and Sasha!!

ERIN + JEFFREY | GRANITE UNITED CHURCH | SALEM, NH https://www.oceanflowerphoto.com/blog/2014/4/erin-jeffery-granite-united-church-salem-nh When Erin and I first met to go over the details of the photography for her and Jeffrey's wedding, she said she would like to do some of the pictures prior to the ceremony, as there would not be much time in between the ceremony and the reception to get them in.  We agreed to make the moment that her and Jeffery saw each other just as special as if they were in the church. The first few images are a documentation of Erin and Jeffrey's "First Look".   This moment between them was so special and intimate that  I couldn't help but tear up a bit when I was behind the lens.   

I absolutely loved capturing this amazing couple's love throughout their ceremony and reception!  Congratulations Mr. and Mrs Solomon!

Spontaneous Adventure https://www.oceanflowerphoto.com/blog/2014/2/spontaneous-adventure My son Adan was home today from kindergarten because of teacher trainings, so after we dropped off big brother D.J. , we decided to get some fresh air and take a spontaneous walk over at a local rescue farm.  When we first arrived though, the only animals that were out were the chickens, so we walked around the grounds a bit.  It was very cold, but a beautiful winter wonderland (if you look closely, you can see the horses breath)!  As we continued walking, we noticed the workers bringing the horses out of their stables into the large pens for the day.  The horses were waiting for their food, and were very interactive with us.  Adan was so excited, and it was such a sweet moment to capture.

Snow Cream! https://www.oceanflowerphoto.com/blog/2014/1/snow-cream Happy New Year!!  Well, Depending on where you live, you may be snowed in just like we are over here in New England!  Some of our surrounding towns have reported at least 2 feet of snow.  The snow coupled with the arctic air makes for a perfect day to stay inside!  

The kids (and me) are starting to get cabin fever, so when a friend of mine posted on Facebook a fun activity to do with the snow, INSIDE, I jumped on it!!!  Not sure if you have ever heard of it, but it certainly was my first time hearing about Snow Cream!

If you don't know how to make it, you can find the recipe below, enjoy!!!

Thanksgiving Traditions https://www.oceanflowerphoto.com/blog/2013/11/thanksgiving-traditions What some of you may not know is that in my spare time (although there is very little of that when you are photographer this time of year), when I am not enjoying photography or spending time with my family, I LOVE scrapbooking and any kind of paper crafting.  Its been a while since I have had a moment to do any type of crafting, but I wanted to share my latest project with you.

In seeing so many of my friends posting about what they are thankful for this year on Facebook, I decided instead to bring this concept into our family in the form of a "Gratitude Jar".  Each day my husband, 2 boys and I are writing down one thing we are thankful for on a leaf (each of us was assigned a different color leaf).  On Thanksgiving Day, we will read all of the leaves!  

I think we will try to make this a yearly tradition!!  

What are some of your Thanksgiving Traditions?  Share in the comments if you'd like!!

Nature Walk https://www.oceanflowerphoto.com/blog/2013/10/nature-walk Many times before and after a Client shoot, I will explore the surroundings and capture what I see.  Yesterday was a perfect Fall morning, it was brisk, quiet, and if I listened closely, I could hear nature all around me.  I decided to explore a little more than I normally do, and ended up taking a beautiful 45 minute walk.   July 08, 2011-naturewalkblogboard-Photographer, NHJuly 08, 2011-naturewalkblogboard-Photographer, NH

Hidden Acres is a Hidden Gem https://www.oceanflowerphoto.com/blog/2013/7/hidden-acres-is-a-hidden-gem  

In my search for the perfect location for our Fall Mini-Shoots, a friend of mine suggested I visit his friend's farm, so this morning, my husband and I headed out.  

We were greeted by a genuine farmer, who gave us some insight about the history of this serene place that was bought by his wife's family back in 1939.  As he gave us a tour of his beautiful farm, our eyes were met by acres upon acres of rolling fields filled with crops of corn, pumpkins, apple trees and berries just to name a few.  The beauty was enhanced by the charm of antique tractors, old pick up trucks, and even rustic watering cans lining the property.  

I still have a couple of more places to scope out for the Fall mini-shoots, but Hidden Acres is definitely in the running for 1st place, what do you think?

Pink Moon https://www.oceanflowerphoto.com/blog/2013/4/pink-moon So, yesterday, the news was announcing that a full "Pink Moon" would be out.  Considering pink is my favorite color, and the fact that it was my 10th wedding anniversary, I felt this to be a VERY special moon.  So, our family decided to make an adventure out of finding a great spot to view this "pink moon" and of course I had intentions of trying to capture it.  

We left while the sun was setting to give us me plenty of time to set up for a great view  shot.  We drove to a couple of the locations we had in mind, and no moon.  The boys wanted snacks, so we decided to drive to a local convenience store, and then there it was, Adan spotted what was to be the "Pink Moon"!

There is was, low to the ground, huge, beautiful, and yes, to me it looked to have a pinkish tone!!   We found a good spot, not as scenic as I had envisioned, but with a great view.   We had some technical difficulties with the tripod, so the top of the minivan had to do, and it did, as I was able to capture some decent images!

What we all noticed, however, as the sun set and the pink tone of the sky diminished, the pink tone of the moon also disappeared, and although beautiful, bright and full, it appeared to be a normal colored moon.  So being the curious type that I am, I decided to to a bit of research and found that The Native Americans named the full moons  based on their harvests at the time of their appearance. The "pink moon" would occur during the time the wild ground phlox would blossom (which is a plant that produces beautiful, bright pink flowers)  and that is how the "pink moon" got it's name. It is the first Full Moon of The Spring.

I think its finally Spring!! https://www.oceanflowerphoto.com/blog/2013/3/i-think-its-finally-spring My youngest and I were finally able to drag the bike out of the shed.  Neither of us could get enough of the 50 degree weather, sunshine and perfect blue skies!  It is a good thing I took a picture to capture this perfect sky, as it is supposed to snow again tonight, yes, that is correct, just 4 days before Easter,  they are calling for snow!!  That's New England for you!
