Alexis and Ryan – Omni Parker Wedding

I was fortunate to have booked an unusually high number of December weddings this year (usually things wind down towards the end of Oct/early Nov).  One of the things that makes winter weddings so much fun is that they are a totally new challenge from most of the weddings during the summer.  That’s because they’re usually almost 100% indoors – and almost always at night, which changes the game a bit.  I love it because you have to think a different way and rise up to the challenge.  Alexis and Ryan got married on a chilly December evening at the Omni Parker House.

Now that being said, it doesn’t hurt to have fantastic clients!  Speaking of which, Alexis and Ryan were/are two of the nicest people out there.  When I showed up Alexis was beaming!

Here’s a few of my favorites from the day:

What a gorgeous ring!


Taking portraits of the bride is almost always one of my favorite parts of day.  They always look stunning!

I met Ryan downstairs near the ceremony room and we found this awesome stairwell.  To me, this just captures the feel of the Omni Parker House perfectly.  The elegant winter wedding.

I love veils…. something about the texture, the light… love this shot.

Alexis and Ryan didn’t know it, but they were the lucky couple who were the first to benefit from my new upgraded Nikon 70-200mm.  The lens really allows me to gain two or three more stops of light – which helps me keep the feel of this room.

This was shot with the same lens.  What an elegant place to get married!

I was joined by my friend Doug Levy who snapped these next two shots.

Alexis and Ryan really loved the feel of the lobby at the Omni Parker House.  So we headed down during the cocktail hour to catch these shots.  This one seems so classic to me.

We also ran over for a quick shot outside the Old State House.

Doug caught this one on the way back into the hotel.

This look just sums it all up to me.  Great catch Doug!

What wedding isn’t complete without a little bridal party singalong?

    Stephanie Wales - Great shots. I love the deep browns & golds in the hotel. The lobby shot is my favorite. The 70-200 is insane isn’t it? 😉

    Mark Andrew Higgins - Great work Ned! I love the portrait of them on the couch. Did Doug mount 15 speed-lights all over weird places and haul out the Pocket Wizards?

    nedjackson - Thanks Stephanie and Mark! Mark – Doug may or may not have had some flashes out during the ceremony! The shot on the couch is actually existing light supplemented with a sb-900 in a soft box… (fired by a pw)
