For the second year in a row I am excited, honored and humbled to receive this honor. It’s a much needed morale boost for me right at the tale end of wedding season when things are winding down. Thank you to all that voted and all those who continue to tell others about my work. This is a huge honor because it took many votes from my supporters, clients and peers.

Jasmine and Chimel were married on April 30th, with a ceremony and reception at the Lyman Estate in Waltham, Massachusetts.
I spent my day bouncing back and forth between Jasmine and Chimel, while my second shooter, Julie, focused on the detail shots and on sticking with Chimel. I’m glad I had Julie there for those shots, too, because there were so many beautiful details. The floral wall by Nectar Floral Design was gorgeous, for example, and Jasmine simply looked stunning in her dress. I also love the image of the groomsmen hanging around the piano—it has a classic, manly rat-pack feel.
Of course, the real star of the show was Xaiden, their little ring bearer. He was just magical, one of those kids who demands your attention simply by being in the room. Every picture he is in dominates your attention. His smile is the perfect representation of his parents’ love for one another. My favorite image of them was of Chimel fixing Xaiden’s tie on the stairs, though I’m also partial to the one of them sitting in front of the bed. Chimel has his arms around his neck in a loving almost headlock that perfectly captures the love between them.
For some reason, their first look felt more special than most. Their facial expressions truly say it all, and every time I look at the photo of them, I joyfully relive it. It was my favorite moment of the day, for sure.
There were so many other moments between them that showed their unique relationship. Chimel showed off his modern-day chivalry when he stopped to adjust Jasmine’s shoe. And as a well-known DJ and hip-hop artist, you know Chimel made sure the party was amazing for all the guests involved!
Jasmine & Chimel, you two are probably the coolest people I’ve ever shot for: cultured, beautiful, modern, and woke as F*&! I want to be you! Thank you for the honor.

Details, Details, Details! This wedding was all about the details! Thanks to Sarah of TenPenny Creative and her amazing wedding styling. It made my job a breeze.
I’ve been lucky to known Sarah & Nildo for a few years now (Yes Sarah the Bride and Sarah the Wedding Creative are the same person) but it wasn’t until after their glamorous/rustic wedding that I came to call them friends. Thank You, Thank You, Thank You for letting me into your circle.
The Cape, the beach, a sunny day and a beautiful couple, what more could a photographer ask for?! Amy and Ryan’s love for one another was obvious and infectious. The O’Kane and Shogren families welcomed me with open arms ensuring I felt more like a guest than a photographer. I’d love to take part in another one of this family’s events.
This couple’s attention to detail and sophisticated style helped create an atmosphere worthy of Boston’s elite. I am honored to have been part of their day.
