A few months back I was honored with the task of capturing Katey and Tom’s engagement photographs. I love when I am blessed with the opportunity of being able to see a new family all the way through. I’m hopeful that when this blissful couple decides to grow their family I’ll be lucky enough to be included in that as well. Whether it’s a puppy or a baby I can’t wait to document their journey through photography.
Sunday August 19th was a gorgeous summer day perfect for capturing amazing photo’s of Katey and Tom’s wedding. We started out at the stunning Westin Waltham Boston in Waltham, MA only 15 miles from downtown Boston.
The Westin is an absolutely beautiful hotel and their knowledgeable staff made sure that my assistant and I had everything we needed. Katey was having a great time getting ready with her friends and family. There was so much love and laugher in the air. The photo options were endless at the Westin.
After shooting some incredible photographs of Katey getting ready we met up with the handsome Tom to capture some detail shots of him as well.
Once everyone was ready we headed over to Camp Cedar Hill in Waltham, MA. This was actually the first wedding that they were hosting but it is something that they have been thinking about doing for quite a while now and in my opinion everything turned out beautifully. Tammy Torrey, Senior Designer at Cedar Hill, was an absolute pleasure to work with. She was very attentive throughout the day making the happy couples experience joyful and stress free.
Katey grew up going to Cedar Hill, which is also known as Girl Scouts of Eastern Ma. As you can see from the photographs the grounds are just beautiful!
Before the wedding ceremony, there was the signing of the ketubah, which is a marriage contract; the ketubah details the obligations of the groom to his bride. The ketubah is a legally binding contract and is typically framed and displayed in the couples home. The ketubah was an amazing picture of Katey and Tom that I took during their engagement shoot.
Katey and Tom had a traditional Jewish wedding. It was officiated by Rabbi Robin Sparr whom is a remarkable woman. I have been fortunate to work with her on a few weddings now and she is an absolute delight. Robin specializes in creating personally designer spiritual wedding ceremonies for Jewish and Interfaith couples of all religious and cultural background. She has a beautiful voice and often sings while playing her guitar enhancing the beauty of the service. Once the signing was completed the ceremony started. Guests gathered to witness this beautiful couple make their vows to love each other forever.
After the ceremony we captured some amazing family photos and a few of the happy new couple. Cedar Hill was just a beautiful venue. The photo options were endless. Katey and Tom were so excited and happy after their nuptials and were willing to really let me apply my artistic and creativity to getting amazing images. These are some of my favorites.
Congratulation Katey and Tom
