Vintage Wedding Photography | Inspiration | Alicia & Brad

You may have noticed a HUGE trend in the wedding industry for the past year or so has been vintage. Vintage e-session, vintage themed weddings, vintage trash the dress sessions, etc etc. I really love the creativity and style couples have been putting into their big day.

Here are some images from a wedding I photographed in October. The theme was understated which I really appreciated. Definitely some vintage details - but not over the top! Enjoy!

There are SO many websites and blogs dedicated to helping you find the perfect details to create your ideal wedding. When deciding if you are going to go with a "theme" for your wedding - there's only one thing I advise. Picture yourself sitting at your coffee table in 20 or 30 years, looking through your wedding images.... what do you want to see?

Boston Wedding Photography | What's Your Style? | Bridal Party Portrait fun

What's your style?

When it comes to wedding photography, style can make or break your images. There is photojournalism, contemporary, candid, traditional....

When it comes to the bridal party and family portraits, there are a few different ways of capturing the moment! I can try to explain them - but I thought just showing you some examples from this past wedding season would do the trick! There's the classic line up, the modern groupings where the bride and groom are more of the focus, the "jump" shots where the bridal party reaches for the sky, and then there's what I like to call the group hug! Which will I do for your wedding? I don't know yet! It's really up to you. If your bridal party is a group of people who all know each other - there's most likely going to be one group hug towards the end. ;-)

This is just a small sampling of what can be done! When it comes down to it - the group formals are about YOUR style - not mine. What will reflect your day the most accurately? What will you think when you're looking at the photos 20 years down the road? Are you planning to put them on your wall? Ask yourself the questions, and we'll work together to get the best possible look and feel for your wedding images.

Winter Engagement Session | Salem, MA | Christina & Gary

Brrr! I've certainly done my fair share of "winter" sessions this year! While I typically avoid the cold and snow at all costs, thankfully some of my brave clients have forced me out to see the beauty in it! Snow can be difficult to shoot in - but the conditions couldn't have been better for Christina & Gary's e-session. The warf made for such a nice backdrop... I think I like it better in the winter than I do in the summer!
