When I first moved to Boston (many years ago), I met David’s mother when I began photographing real estate for her. A few years later I photographed David’s sister’s wedding, and even photographed David for his business. When it came time to find a photographer for his own wedding, I was told he immediately thought of me. It’s wonderful to be there for so many big and small moments in the lives of one family. I don’t take it for granted at all.
Cailin & David are so easy to be around, which makes photographing them just as easy and the resulting photographs feel honest and true to them. Their wedding was on a beautiful day on the last full day of summer at the Dane Estate. In fact, their first dance song was “September” by Earth, Wind and Fire. Perfect!
Some details: They had a first look with each other and then one with their dog, who wasn’t able to stay for the festivities. The ceremony was performed by a good friend, which makes it easier for the personal stories to come out and the happy tears to flow. Many of Cailin’s family traveled from overseas, including Scotland. I loved seeing a fair amount of tartan in the crowd. To keep her dad close to her she wrapped his favorite tie around her bouquet. The evening ended with most everyone gathering round and singing an Oasis song together. I absolutely sang along from behind my camera and loved every second.
