Mother’s Day 2019

“All that I am, or hope to be, I owe to my mother.”

Happy Mother’s Day to all the wonderful moms out there! You are all kinds of amazing.

2019 AMP Season Premiere

This is a yearly post for me because it gets me SO excited for the upcoming wedding season! This year is going to be the best one yet (though, honestly, I say that every year)!! The 2019 season for us goes all the way until November when we end the year with a wedding at The Bedford Village Inn, where Jason and I said our vows years ago. We have 20 weddings in 2019 and of those, there are 4 new venues we’ve never photographed at before. Which means lots of new & exciting corners of New England and Cape Cod to explore! Here are some of the venues where our couples are saying “I Do”…

• Cue the sappy stuff… We are photographing a wedding at the same venue where Jason and I said “I do” nine years ago – The Bedford Village Inn

 

Time to meet some of the 2019 AMP couples…

Ames Library Engagement : Michael Loves Samantha

Samantha & Michael’s engagement photos are SO romantic. The light, the foliage, and these high school sweethearts have us totally swooning. We met at the Ames Library in Easton, which is where Samantha’s parents had their wedding. Their pup Hunter joined us for a bit of snuggles, and then we watched the sunset over the lake. It may have been a bit cold, but look at all the pretty we created! Can’t wait for their wedding in July!!

 

Popponessett Inn Wedding : Maddie Loves Doug

This Popponessett Inn wedding was simply the sweetest – just like this couple. Due to Doug being in the military, they had to be long distance for a year of their relationship, so this wedding was so exciting because they were finally going to spend forever together!

Maddie & Doug’s day was filled with lots of white and romantic greenery, accented by a soft slate blue that was perfect for their beach wedding. Maddie wore her mom’s veil for her something old, and she also had Doug’s military name tag sewn into her gown as her something blue. Their table numbers were framed letters that they wrote to one another; how sweet is that?!

This was truly an emotional and beautiful day, and we loved celebrating with Maddie & Doug. Enjoy every minute of married life, you two! Congrats again, newlyweds!!
