Referrals and repeat customers are the backbone of any successful business. And though you hope not to see too many repeat wedding customers, often a completely unrelated shoot can turn into a future wedding.
I first met Matt in 2012 while shooting photo and video of his band, Birds in Paintings Can’t Fly. They’re a great group and I enjoyed catching them both live and for promo photos. Along the way, I was introduced to Margaret as well.
When they got engaged, I was excited to be asked to be a part of their wedding journey. We started with an engagement photo session at Rocky Point State Park in Warwick. It’s a great spot with a variety of backgrounds - from the waterside to the fishing pier to the pieces of amusement park history. I had a blast wandering the park and capturing some fun images of the couple.
Matt and Margaret’s wedding in Haverhill last fall was a joyous occasion, filled with family, friends and bandmates. We caught some fun photos of the girls and guys bonding (in separate locations, of course) while getting ready for the day.
The ceremony was sweet, with the bride and groom reading their own vows, and a sand ceremony uniting the couple.
Bright yellow sunflowers made a gorgeous contrast to the bridesmaids’ blue dresses and autumn foliage was the perfect backdrop for formal photos (and some not so formal ones).
After the photos, the party moved inside for a reception filled with dinner, toasts, and cake cutting. And dancing. Lots of dancing!
You know it’s a fun wedding when even the littlest guests hit the dance floor.
