I met Jessica & Anthony at a Honey Dew Donuts in Carver, MA on a warm Fall day in 2017. They were one of my first couples to book the "big package" - big news for me! Jessica showed up with a list of the styles that she liked - "dramatic," "dark," "moody," "candid,"...the list goes on in favor of hiring, well, me. She had blonde hair, a gorgeous face, and a super quirky vibe and Anthony reminded me so much of my cousin, Tony, oddly enough, forming an instant soft spot in my heart. They signed a check for a deposit right then and there.
Their engagement session happened two months later on a chilly December morning at the home/campground where Jessica grew up in Plymouth, MA. To this day, their engagement session is one of my all time favorites. It was freezing, filled with laughs and champagne, and I should say that her mom, who revved the engine to add exhaust smoke to my vision, made it that much better. Here are a few shots from that session...
Their wedding day was equally amazing. Jessica is one of the most striking brides I've worked with, with her dark lipstick and old Hollywood glow. I mean, she showed up to the wedding in a vintage Rolls Royce! But more importantly, Jessica, Anthony, and all of their family and friends were humble, kind, and the exact kind of southeastern, MA people I grew up with. Needless to say, their wedding made my job SO EASY.
