Chelsea and Connor had a storybook wedding celebration last weekend at The Woodstock Inn & Resort. Chelsea’s parents and grand parents both got married at the North Chapel so the couple thought it was only fitting to exchange their vows at the same spot. Upon exiting the church, the couple, along with their friends and family, were led to their reception through town by two members of the band Young Love and the Thrills based out of Boston, MA.
The couple worked with Birds of a Flower to create a classic, romantic feel. Bamboo sticks were used as place card holders set in moss covered boxes. Moss was also used on the bridal table as a beautiful base that was topped with glassware from Simon Pearce holding beautiful floral arrangements and candles.
Chelsea adorned a gorgeous gown by Christos that allowed her to move so eloquently throughout the day from the first look to the dance floor. She wore her grandmother’s seawater blue ring as her something borrowed, something blue. Her bridesmaids wore a mix of navy and light blue lace dresses by Self Portrait. The groom and groomsmen wore blue blazers and pants with ties from The Tie Bar.
Chelsea and her family worked with Post Road Press at Two Ems to create their paper goods. Chelsea’s talented sister created the artwork and collaborated with Post Road Press to create beautiful stationery from the dinner menu to the save the date cards. Having her sister’s artwork on their wedding papers provided a perfect special touch.
Another thing the couple did was in addition to opting for a first look, they pre-organized their timeline to have all their formal portraits out of the way before the ceremony, including family formal portraits. I have to say that I was a bit nervous packing this much in before the ceremony but we approached it with some flexibility knowing that if we weren’t able to get through all the portraits before the ceremony, we would finish them up during cocktail hour. With proper planning, we made it happen so that the couple ended up enjoying ALL of their cocktail hour with friends and family. Now that I’ve done it and see how much more the couple enjoyed their cocktail hour, I highly recommend it. Chelsea and Connor were able to enjoy mingling and catching up with guests they may not have seen in a long time.
By the way, speaking of first looks, how adorable is the mini-first-look Connor had with his mom right before the first look with Chelsea? Lots of good takeaways from this wedding and so much fun!

Once again I am humbled to have an image included in this selection of images for the 2015 VOICE Image Collection that will be on display at Click Away photography conference in San Antonio, TX in October. It’s such an honor for me because some of my favorite photographers images were also included and to think I’d have an image included in this collection blows my mind. I love looking at the world we live in through other people’s eyes and this collection inspires me to want to go out and try new things with my own photography. Take a moment, click on the link and view the entire collection.

I really couldn’t be more excited and honored about this feature in Mozi Magazine. I remember the first issue I bought of Mozi Magazine, it was their family issue, August of 2013. I never would have dreamed that I would be seeing my own images in their Family & Children issue 10 months later. I also remember drooling over the imagery published and feeling so inspired. When I saw that they were taking submissions for their next issue, the Lighting issue, I thought it would be worth submitting what I had captured while doing my 365 project to see if it could get published. None of my images were selected for publication and once the November Lighting issue came out, I could see why. The images they chose to publish were beyond gorgeous. Don’t get me wrong, I still feel like my images were great images, one even got shared on their Facebook page, but the images that were published were just perfect for a lighting issue. This is where I first discovered Summer Murdock and the way she infuses light into her images. I’m still hoping to take a class with her this fall and learn from this talented artist.
When I saw that Mozi was taking submissions for their Family and Children Issue, again I thought why not? I have been capturing images of my kids everyday for an entire year through an incredible project so I thought it wouldn’t hurt to submit again. I did and I now have six images published. Why am I telling you this long story? Well, because it’s important to 1) not compare your work to others but rather be inspired by it and 2) never give up on something if it doesn’t work out the first time. Things happen for a reason and be glad they do, sometimes it just means something better is just around the corner.
I’m doing a 365 project again this year because I simply love shooting and capturing our life, our story, every. single. day. You can see more of this project here.
To celebrate, I’m giving away one digital copy of Mozi The Family & Children Issue. If you’ve never subscribed to Mozi Magazine, you’re in for a real treat…no advertising and chock full of beautiful imagery along with great interviews.
