Katie and Brant are getting married this August at the Red Lion Inn in Cohasset, MA!

The minute they mentioned Wellfleet for their engagement photos, I was all in! I absolutely love the outer Cape, and knew we’d find some gorgeous spots. What I didn’t know, however, was that I’d first join them on the family porch, overlooking Wellfleet Harbor, slurping oysters that were pulled fresh from the waters that morning – I swear my clients are the bestest in the whole world!

We shared a gin and tonic with Katie’s lovely parents, and then off to Cahoon Hollow Beach to put our feet in the sand!

This gorgeous marsh backdrop is literally right on the property of their family cottage… [insert oyster here]

We walked around the docks of Wellfleet Harbor as the sun was setting, right where Brant proposed to Katie last year! Just as we were laughing about recent news stories, of bridal parties falling off docks or boats during portraits, we spotted this rickety maintenance platform and immediately jumped on. [insert gin here]

There’s no better time of day to end on photographs… a beautiful evening sun!

Katie & Brant, I absolutely cannot wait to see you again on your wedding day this August! It has been a blast getting to know you both, and I’m so happy we got to share this fantastic Saturday evening as the time gets closer! XO

What an absolute honor to spend a morning with Kendra and Matt, the photographers behind Summer Street Photography in Somerville, MA!

They are fantastic photographers and awesome people, and they’re excitedly awaiting their first baby too! We met at the Sandwich Boardwalk on the morning of Monday, June 10th – in celebration of their two-year wedding anniversary! I just love photographing the kind of snuggles Matt and Kendra have for each other :-)

Congratulations, Kendra and Matt, on the exciting adventure ahead! XO

Mike and Amy celebrated their incredible wedding weekend this May in West Tisbury, on the island of Martha’s Vineyard!

I joined the family at their parent’s home for an amazingly heartfelt rehearsal dinner evening Saturday of Memorial Day weekend. There were so many toasts, so much laughter, and definitely a few tears. The morning of their wedding day, Amy and her sisters invited me to join at the house for a private yoga class at 7am… no camera (ok, just one photo!), just breathing in the air of a new day, surrounding our bride with beautiful energy. No better way to start such a momentous day!

The weekend weather was stormy, dramatic, charged and invigorating. The sun came out at Flat Point Farm just in time, and the wind continued to fluff our spirits (read: blow away all the Rabbi’s papers!). More importantly, there was so much love in the air! Mike and Amy have a brief and absolutely gah-gah courtship behind them – love like this just hits you hard! They were so sweet to watch as they savored the day together, and they shared a huge love for their families and friends as well. EVERYONE was so, so happy.

Congratulations, Mike & Amy!

The wind and rain of the day before had cleared, and this sweet dock found its way above water just in time for their first-look :-)

Flowers, flowers, flowers… it doesn’t get much more amazing than Becca from Petal Floral Design, except for when she’s also sister to the groom! It was such an honor to share this day with her as well!

Rabbi Mark was a fantastic addition to the weekend – so hilarious, and so welcoming of all into the Jewish traditions.

The winds swept up and carried Rabbi Mark’s papers into the air, just as the ceremony began! Their family on either side held onto the chuppah for safe keeping.

Sisters! Such a gorgeous combination of colors! (psst, I already bought myself the lipstick Amy’s wearing :-))

More incredible touches by the lovely Becca…

One of the best first-dances I’ve ever seen! Their song – Al Green’s “Let’s Stay Together” – was sung by brother-in-law (Becca’s husband), Mike – just perfect!

Paying homage to Mike’s Philly routes, cheese-steaks were served at the end of the evening!

Mike & Amy, what can I say… You guys welcomed me in with huge squeezy hugs, and it has been wonderful sharing in your planning as both your photographer and friend. You created the kind of day weekend that makes us “vendors” cry too. I am so incredibly grateful to have been a part of it. Your love is what it’s all about… I wish you a beautiful life ahead!

    meg simone - Incredible! So Stunning! How perfect that you were able to join in with the am yoga AND that Becca is the grooms sister!! Hi Becca! You looked amazing, as did your floral designs. Love your eye on this one Stacey :)

One of my absolute top-favorite days it Italy: hopping the train out to the town of Arezzo for its monthly antiques market!

It just so happened to be Julie‘s birthday as well – a great day!

Over 500 vendors and 100 little shops have participated in this antiques market since 1968. The hilly, narrow streets were lined up and down, every turn we made! It was truly incredible, and how lucky for the Tuscany region to enjoy this every month!

Julie and I came out with vintage maps and postcards, earrings, a few gifts, and an incredible lunch (and Vin Santo!) over a shared table with some lovely women. They were from the midwest U.S., and had met in an Italian language course years ago. All retired now, they just bought a house together in the town of Trevi, and were shopping the antiques market to fill the home. It was the stuff movies are made of

    D Baker - I so enjoyed following you on your vacation on instagram.

    Julie - LOVE IT. Thanks so much for making my 29th a rad one! I’m so excited to relive our trip now one more time now that your blog posts are rolling!

    Lindsey - Loooooove, Stacey! I’d like to have just about every single thing you photographed in my house, I think. : )

So I’m seriously addicted to video these days…

And yes, this is another one just on my iPhone, but I actually LOVE the spontaneous fun of just using the phone!

In the next newsletter, I’ll be sure to share some of my favorite tips and resources for you to play on your own. In the meantime, I should probably start piecing together all the “real camera” footage I shot in my “30 days in Italy”!

I hope you enjoy this little glimpse of our Sunday afternoon!
