Fun Wedding at the PEM

I had the privilege of photographing Tory and Scott’s wedding on December 5. With the help of her bridesmaids, the bride got ready at the house she grew up in, a gorgeous older home in Salem.

I love this shot of the bride with her bridesmaids before they all left for the ceremony.

It was an emotional moment when the groom surprised her at the front door for the reveal. This photo shows just how excited each of them was to be see one another.

Prior to the ceremony, the bride and groom, along with their wedding party, headed toward the water for photographs. As you can see from the photo below, the wedding party was just as fun as the couple–we had a great time taking sunset photographs at Winter Island in Salem, MA, before the Salem Trolley brought us to the ceremony.

The ceremony was held at Immaculate Conception Church in Salem, right down the street from the Peabody Essex Museum, where the reception was held.

After the ceremony, guests carried lanterns to light the way to the PEM. It was such a nice idea!

The reception was catered by Hawthorne Catering at the Hawthorne Hotel. The PEM atrium was set beautifully with fruitwood chairs and golden uplighting. You can see the band, Flipside, getting ready in the background–they were fantastic!

The bride and groom glowed during their first dance. Look at that smile!

Both Tory and Scott work in Washington, so many of their guests flew up for the wedding. Just like the wedding party, they were a fun group who hardly ever left the dance floor.

I hope you enjoyed this peak at Tory and Scott’s special day. What a great new beginning!

I just love the way the light silhouette’s the couple in this one.

Mike was a little late, so I took the opportunity to take a few shots of Elise as she waited for him. This one is one of my favorites.

Your place or mine?

Have you ever thought of having your professional business headshot session take place in your own work environment?

Your environment says a lot about you, your style and your profession. It helps your viewers know more about you. And it gives us unique backgrounds and settings. I love the variety of portraits we were able to capture at Makeup Eden.

And they danced to the light of the moon…

Super Moon.
Super Moon.

I LOVE this photo and it reminds me of the poem “The Owl and the Pussycat”

A beautiful young couple, the historic architecture of downtown Salem and a Super Moon: what more could we have asked for?
We photographed Tom and Cecily’s wedding ceremony on July 11th at St. John’s Church in Beverly Farms and their reception at Colonial Hall in downtown Salem, MA. We went out to take a photograph with the great architecture of the brick building in the background and timed it perfectly so we could capture the Super Moon in a crevice between the buildings in the upper right section of the photograph! The moon stayed with us only for a few minutes, just long enough to capture this unforgettably romantic image.
