I first met Sarah and Dan in a small pastry shop just outside Harvard Square and instantly loved their chemistry. They were so clearly happy together that I knew their wedding would be a blast. We met again for an engagement session in the Boston Public Garden and got to see a bit more of their personalities. I love that they were willing to put their feet in! We had a blast walking around the gardens, Commonwealth Ave. and Copley Square and we all got more excited for the wedding.
Dan and Sarah got married on August 1st on what was one of the most beautiful days of the summer. The ceremony took place at the Park Street Church and the reception at the Boston Museum of Science. Here are few of my favorites from the day.
Since Sarah and Dan met at Harvard, I figured this was only natural:
Sarah’s beautiful red calla lilies which played well with the old woodwork of the Park Street Church:
Some of my favorite images of Sarah:
My assistant Don, from Don Mamone Photography, caught this great moment with the bridesmaids before the ceremony:
Dan was getting ready below the church. Here he was getting a bit of help with his tie!
The Park Street Church has these beautiful stairwells. Here the bridesmaids are heading down to the ceremony.
One of my favorites from the ceremony that Don caught.
I love all traditions surrounding leaving the wedding… especially ones where people throw things. All of my brothers trashed each others cars with absurd decorations. For Sarah and Dan it was a bit more gentle, but equally fun.
I love this stolen moment of Dan looking at his new bride outside the church.
The reception took place at the Boston Museum of Science. As we arrived the golden sunset was filtering into the tent.
People often ask why I always work with a second shooter. The answer has nothing to do with confidence or anything like that. I love having a second eye with me. Sometimes as a photographer, you’ll get a idea in your head and you’ll work to bring that idea to fruition – and while working to make it happen, you can’t always see what you’re doing from a different angle. Take the shot below as an example. I knew what look I wanted to achieve, and Sarah and Dan were awesome to work with and fell so naturally into this great moment. While I love the shot I got- I love Don’s shot too (right below mine), and I might have missed that angle had he not been there.
Perhaps my favorite series of shots from the came during a moment when Sarah and Dan snuck away from the party to be alone for a minute. I couldn’t resist as I saw them relaxing along the rail here:
Eventually they turned to look at the sunset and the light caught their faces in such a beautiful way.
Again – another series where it was great to have an assistant. During Sarah and Dan’s final dance, we caught these great series of moments, from different angles.
Of course – the slideshow. Check it out to see more of their wedding!
Thanks so much Sarah and Dan for letting us share in your day! We had a blast!
