A COZY WINTER WELCOME!
A COZY WINTER WELCOME!
I’ve grown up around the area of Nauticus Marina in Osterville my whole life, visiting the docks next door for both breakfast and cocktails as the business names changed over three decades. A few winters back I captured these photos of an empty Crosby Boat Yard, and later visited again with a friend to snap some Polaroids. It’s a truly special place – the boat yard – and it just so happens to be next to a wedding venue!
Katrina and Bryan were the perfect duo for the backdrop! I first met these guys at their home on Boston’s waterfront, where we shared a cocktail and explored nearby streets and rooftops for their engagement photos. I knew they were pretty fun then, but now I REALLY know… their wedding was one of the most dancy, hysterical, smile-filled afternoons I’ve ever had the honor of photographing!
Katrina and Bryan got ready with their friends in the Hyannis area – the guys at a hotel and the gals at a friend’s beautiful summer home.

Katrina and Bryan chose to see each other for the first time on the widow’s walk of the girls’ summer home. As four of us got ready to photograph and film the sweet moment, Bryan simply bounded full-speed up the stairs and ran into the arms of his bride! Utterly adorable!
And soon we were off in the trolley on the way to a beautiful ceremony at Nauticus Marina in Osterville! The bride’s mom officiated the wedding, and the groom’s dad served as best man. These guys just have such wonderful family bonds, and the love was squeezable all around!
Wishing a HUGE congratulations to Katrina and Bryan! What an incredible wedding day – and incredible dance floor! – and I couldn’t be more positive that their life together will continue to be a blast! Thank you for welcoming us into your lives, and reminding me that I quite likely have the best job ever! Love you guys!

I’ve been absolutely terrible about blogging… for a year now, to be honest. But every Monday, I’m posting a double-handful of photos from the weekend’s wedding for all to enjoy!!!Kathryn and Ross celebrated with an incredible backyard wedding at her family home in Williston, Vermont this weekend. They couldn’t have been sweeter – with each other, with their friends and families, and even with us, their vendors. We walked around downtown Burlington together, enjoying the mountains and views over Lake Champlain, and then returned to their family home in Williston for a lovely ceremony and dinner. I loved that their reception evening centered around lawn games until dark!Head on over to Stacey Hedman | photography on Facebook for a big glimpse into their beautiful love!
Colleen and Grant are excellent friends of ours, currently living on opposite sides of the country (Colorado to Connecticut anyway) while Grant is in Physician Assistant school.
On Colleen’s recent visit out east, we were so happy to host them here. And sometimes – just sometimes – I make my friends pose for photos too ;-)
(psssst! aren’t they adorable??)
Earlier last week, I shared one of my all-time favorite sessions on my other blog, Cold Nose Photo!
If you didn’t know this about me already, I’m a huge dog-lover, and photographing dogs is actually how my whole business started in 2009!
This session was a gorgeous day out of Boston Sailing Center with two couples and their dogs – all great friends, and a fantastic Saturday morning together! CLICK HERE to follow over to the full post!
