Ruth has become a good friend, and she’s also the creative talent behind my anchor logo! Check her out at Concertina Press!

We had such a great time walking around the Knob in Falmouth’s Quissett Harbor together this September, with photographer pal Lindsay Carole also in town from Colorado. Things got quite giggley! Cool thing is that she and Ryan eloped at this very location at sunrise five years ago!

    Ruth - Thanks Stacey! These came out SO great, and I think you really captured the fun that we have together! We’ve been coming back to this same spot since we were high-schoolers and it makes me smile to see us here “grown up” :)

Laura & Chris were married this June at the Chatham Bars Inn. Such a sweet and elegant wedding day, with a couple who’s just as stunning as the ocean backdrop.

A huge thank you to the ever-amazing Style Me Pretty for featuring Laura & Chris’ wedding on the site yesterday! MANY more photos – and sweet words from the couple themselves – can be found here!

    Meredith Sledge - Stacey, you’re my new favorite photographer. Ever. Your work is amazing. SO thrilled I found your site.

Christin and Matt… what a beautiful energy these guys share. Equal parts hilarious and thoughtful – ALL the time. From when I first met Christin in downtown Boston, to our dog-loving Skype dates, and then their engagement photos in Portsmouth, my own excitement continued to build for this incredible September day.

At our very first meeting, Christin brought along photos of her friends and family – showing laughter with siblings, her exuberant golden retriever, her mom’s beautiful smile before losing her battle with cancer just a few months into wedding planning… All a true indication that Christin wasn’t just inviting me in as a photographer but as a friend, and that means the world to me.

Welcome to Smolak Farms, in Andover MA! I hope you love these newlyweds as much as I do.

School bus wedding commute… so fun!

And when I said hilarious up above? Yeah, this is only a tiny glimpse of the dance floor fun that night. I think these guys had been practicing their cowboy twirl for weeks!

Christin and Matt, you guys deserve all the beauty that surrounded you September 2nd, and always. Thank you so much for welcoming me into your lives!

    Marianne - These are great. I have spent years picking apples there – didn’t know they did weddings! What a great venue!
    Beautiful job as always!

    Christin Schow - Thank you Stacey for capturing our day so perfectly! I’ve come back and looked at the pictures so many times already and each time I can’t stop smiling and remembering our perfect day!

    Meredith Perdue - So pretty, Stacey! I cannot get over the dog and his tie – I love it!

No lie, September is THE best month of the year on Cape Cod. October is a close second. Which probably helps to explain the revolving door of guests we’ve had over the last five weeks, and still going!

You know we’ve had photographer guests coming in from all over the country, but I finished the month out by traveling to San Francisco and Sonoma to be a photographer guest of my own! Actually, five of us women photographers flew in, rented a house, sipped wine, and captured photos for fun for five days… it was fantastic!

September! The dogs are welcome back to the beaches, but alas, our newest addition broke his leg in puppy klutziness :-( I’ve been returning to yoga… and dressing like a homeless person again (Gary loves that). So I thought I’d throw in some California waves to prove that I do know how to leave the house.

So many rainbows this month! I saw my first full rainbow from end to end, and then a double above it!

Thought I’d share some eco-sweet make-up names for you from my consultation with wedding artist Emma Josselyn: Alima Pure mineral make-up is made with the kindness of a mother when her teenage daughter wanted to start wearing make-up. I’m shocked that Dr. Hauschka lipstick doesn’t seem to ever dry my lips, and you can top it with a lovely Tallulah lip gloss to customize your own color blend. I’m absolutely not a make-up expert, but I do love knowing I’m putting gentle, earthly things on my skin.

And last, a photo of my girls! Stockholm photographer, Alicia Swedenborg, just moved to NYC for the year – so close! Kristen Wood (our Cali host) and I go back in a few directions, from my month in Banff and a film workshop in Miami. And Melissa Schollaert has been a longtime friend online, so happy to finally squeeze her in person! Also joining us in her hometown was Christina McNeill!

Hope you had a wonderful month too, fast as it was, and that your October is shaping up nicely :-)
