Boston Navy Yard Wedding- Sally & Matt

Sally & Matt  9.19.09

When we first met Sally and Matt, we never imagined that their wedding was going to be this visually exquisite. As a Boston Wedding Photographer, we are lucky to have clients like them.

Sally was so low-key about the whole process and when I asked her how she did it, she responded, “Oh, I know, everything just fell into place. And it seemed like for every detail, vendor, or staff we got more than we expected. “ Like magic. Yeah, that’s pretty much how we feel about them- they are the magical Boston couple.And to top it off, Matt sang “Shook me all night long” by ACDC. Hilarious!

This is what Sally and Matt said about their photos: “First of all, the pictures are absolutely AMAZING! Matt and I are blown away by the lighting, angles and moments you guys captured!  It is going to be a hard task to sort through our favorites… We spent over 3 hours looking at the photos today and I watched the ACDC slideshow at least 10 times!  …We enjoyed working with you guys so much and the moments you have have helped us capture will be cherished.”

They may be magical couple- but you are magical photographer as well. I very much love the light in the bridal suite photographs,and I also very much enjoy the shot of the bouquet. thank you for sharing. I am finding this website to be educational and addictive, so many talented photographers all in one spot!

Lillie: isn’t it amazing how ordinary things really are not ordinary? 🙂

Mariquita: thank you!

Love the aerial stairwell shot and the black and white Gothic Church. It looks a lot like the St Joseph Cathedral in Columbus, Oh, where we had our ceremony.

@ Mariquita: Some of the credit, especially for the bridal suite shots go to our stellar associate photographer, Chris Gagne. He does an awesome job and very much embodies our style and philosophy. We photograph every wedding with two photographers and find this very much frees us up to really stretch ourselves and push the envelope a bit–basically we can take many more chances–high reward with a much lower risk.

@ Lauren: Church in Charlestown, Mass was amazing to say the least. It is easy when you have such a spectacular place in which to make photographs. About the stairwell shots – we went above to give the sense of depth but more importantly was the use of black and white really helped these scenes since that carpet it red and competed too much with our subjects. Color is a godsend and a curse all at once. A true PJ master might be Alex Webb. Google him because I think you will appreciate his work.

You were able to capture not just pictures, but also the moment and the emotions around it. I’m sure they were thrilled with all the shots, and they definitely have an album that isn’t like anyone else’s. Kudos!
