Video Hello from Cotuit

Chillin’ at the beach this evening, and inspired to move these video posts to the iPhone! I think it will allow me to be more casual and spontaneous with this fun element of saying hello!

I got the idea after reading about this photographer shooting an entire wedding via iPhone – what do you think? I’m sure I’m not supposed to be impressed by it, but I’m always game for trying new challenges and innovations. It works for a City Hall wedding anyway!

But I’ll stop typing… hope you enjoy!

DJ’s mentioned:

  • Flavorheard – spinning vinyl and digital, crazy amazing guys
  • JetSet Sounds – mixing classic wedding and beats, and I do mean mixing (not just intermixing)
  • DJ Davey Jones – just launching the wedding aspect of his biz, but I can connect you via e-mail/phone

“Second Shooters” joining me this month!

August Favorites

August was SUCH a fantastic month! The weather was beautiful, so much laughter, and amazing opportunities created and found!

MOST of all, we adopted a dog! He’s a 5-month old Black-Mouth Cur from Louisiana, who we met while photographing for the Animal Rescue League of Boston‘s Cape Cod shelter. We named him Cajun, or “Cage”! If you follow me on Instagram, you’ll already see he’s fitting in quite well with a long line of quirky and hilarious Hedman mutts :-)

Second most wonderful were the ten days I spent at our other home base (and business base) of Dorset, Vermont. It was so nice to breathe in the Vermont air, and to savor the family, friendships and backdrops of the area. I photographed a wedding, but also local farmers and businesses, and a creative shoot I spontaneously dreamt up on my own. I also made a great new photographer friend as we sat together working at my fav, the Northshire Bookstore!

I hope you had a fantastic month too! Pull on some jeans and get ready for an equally fantastic September.

The above…

Photographing one of my favorite subjects – the wines and goodies of Truro Vineyards on Cape Cod! Several great hikes while enjoying our time in Vermont. Meet Cajun, before he even snuggled into my arms!

Another great business, I spent a few mornings in the bakery of Earth Sky Time Farm in Manchester, VT. And I was so excited when several local yoga studios came together to celebrate with over 150 yogis on the Village Green in Hyannis – Happy National Yoga Month this September! My nieces inspired me to call on my friendship-bracelet making skills, and it was just like riding a bike! Used to spend hooouuurs with a pin of embroidery floss tied to my jeans in middle school.

I’m never great about spending on my own massages, but I love gift certificates! And this was probably the deepest massage I’ve ever experienced, at Equinox Resort & Spa in Manchester. After ten days away, I came back to my hydrangea, herbs and veggies picked from the garden! Lastly, a Polaroid glimpse of a very special shoot – a collaboration that came together just perfectly, and you’ll be seeing more very soon!

Portsmouth Engagement with Christin + Matt

Christin & Matt are getting married this weekend! It’s Labor Day weekend, and time to kick off the beautiful fall season. These guys have definitely become great friends of mine, and their dog Milo too! Which makes things all the sweeter when the big day arrives!

We had so much fun on their engagement photos in Portsmouth, NH. We explored the waterfront, Strawberry Banke, and the downtown area a tiny bit before the rain crashed down on our heads.

SO excited for the beautiful weekend ahead with you guys! Congratulations!

Vermont Flowers

Anna is a new and wonderful friend of mine. She was a guest at Luke & Suzanne’s Mt. Washington Hotel winter wedding this past January, but she’s also from the same town my husband was raised in – Dorset, Vermont!

Anna grows flowers on the hillside just up the street from my in-laws, and she brings them to the farm stand at JK Adams twice a week – on Wednesdays and Saturdays. It was so much fun to visit her while picking for the upcoming Saturday bounty!

On a Creek in South Dartmouth

It took all the restraint in the world not to title this post “A Dawson’s Creek Wedding”…but then I’d have to get into that whole issue with how I think it shoulda been “Pacey’s Creek” cause he was the way cuter of the two.

So phew, it’s a good thing this one’s about Annie and Matt! You may remember this stunning couple from their intimate Nantucket wedding in June, and what followed was a fantastic celebration at Annie’s family home in South Dartmouth, MA this July!

Such perfection in their tangerine colors and lush green surroundings. I love that they had fun with their wedding celebration in this way, and friends and family were all so happy to raise a glass to such an awesome couple!
