I’m so excited to announce that Stacey Hedman Photography is now offering a newsletter format right to your inbox!

It’s been a long-time coming, but writing is one of my favorite things to do! The year ahead is going to be so much fun!

I’ll bring you some new tid-bits not found on the blog, not on the pages of Facebook, and yes, not even in my beloved Instagram photos, ha! At the same time, you’ll have easy-to-see links to those too – focused on what’s most relevant to the current season, or helpful to your planning right now.

And don’t worry – I won’t fill your inbox all the time… I’m thinking monthly or even quarterly. I want to make it fun and relevant for you and me both! Here’s what you might see:

  • Gift vouchers, discount codes and print sales – just for you!
  • Camera how-tos to help you take better photos at home!
  • Highlights on the best local wedding vendors or the latest products we’re offering!
  • Behind-the-scenes photos and personal commentary, not quite ready for prime-time on the blog ;-)

Just plug in your e-mail address below, and join me with the first issue next week!

    Christin Schow - Yayaya!!!! I’m looking forward to the newsletter!!!

Matt and Denise celebrated a beautiful May wedding day at Endicott Estate in Dedham, MA!

You’ll remember these guys from their engagement photos (and LL Bean boots!) this fall. Denise and I have known each other for many years, and I’ve been looking forward to photographing her stunning beauty in a wedding gown for longer than her engagement! She moved throughout her wedding day with such grace, yet rocked it out on the dance floor just as hard as anybody. The kind of girl you wanna hang out with all the time. And Matt – both loving and hysterical – is so clearly her best match as they take on this amazing life together!

Huge love to both of you – Congratulations!!

The beautiful flowers of the day were designed by June Rubin, of A Wild Flower in Newton, MA. A great match with the spring blooms outside!

The invitations from Sofia Sayer on Etsy – so fresh and fun!

The stunning Saint Theresa of Avila Parish in West Roxbury, MA.

The Irish and the Canadians! Made for quite a happy mix, and my particular fav (having gone to college near the Montreal border) were the late-night gravy-fries that came out!

Endicott Estate made for a beautiful backdrop, particularly in May. The trees were blooming, and the open porches were dappled in a romantic light. As you can see…. things got quite romantic.

As the evening continued, The Classic Yellow quickly became my absolute favorite band of all time. They were covering anything from Stevie Wonder to Shaggy, with George Michael, Justin Timberlake and Kanye West in between. I kinda imagined the dance floor would never stop (and I still have like 700 photos to get through because of it :-))!

Also super cool was the mid-evening appearance of Boston’s beloved Terry Brennan, who has been playing Irish tunes at The Black Rose since the couple’s first dates (left below)! Bottom left? Yep, that’s the groom… pure awesome!

Matt & Denise, you guys are clearly going to have SO. MUCH. FUN. in your life together! Thank you so much for including me in the start of something this wonderful! I wish you nothing but the best! XO

    Meredith Sledge - WOWY!!! These are the bestest! Love!

As many of you know, I spent the month of April living in Florence, Italy and traveling the country. You may also know I’m slightly addicted to Instagram! Well, almost immediately upon arriving, I started sneakily snapping street photos of the beautiful fashion around me!

Italians dress nice. No t-shirts or shorts, no flip flops. They’re wearing the coolest scarves, toting the most amazing Italian leather bags, and following through all the way to the shoes on their feet. The old ladies, the young ladies – and most noticeably the gentlemen too!

They’re also riding their bikes and Vespas looking this good. Heels and all. I simply could not stop – I think this was my favorite thing to photograph all month! (click the collage to follow me on Instagram!)

Stay tuned as more film scans come back from my travels, and also for a compilation VIDEO I did over my “30 Days in Italy”! Can’t wait to share!

(huge thanks also to travel buddy Julie Williams Photography for introducing me to the iPhone app called “Afterlight” – such an incredible photo editing tool for your phone!)

Pete & Rocio celebrated with a destination wedding at Hacienda Tres Rios in Playa del Carmen, Mexico this March!

It was a gorgeous week with family and friends, so many attending from the couple’s home in New England, loved ones from Mexico City, and more. A larger destination wedding is no small feat, and I know these guys had their hands full, but their love and beauty as a couple continued to shine through! Congratulations Pete and Rocio on a truly special celebration of marriage!

The Mayan ceremony – complete with toes in the sand – was absolutely one of the most special and unique ceremonies I’ve seen. What a beautiful way to welcome Pete and Rocio into this new adventure together!

And of course! A tequila shot toast following the ceremony! (now, that’s my kind of party….)

Guests enjoyed a hand-rolled cigar bar, and a fantastic evening of dancing out on the beach! What a treat to see the awesome Latin dancing. The bridesmaids even splashed in the ocean! A great time was definitely had by all.

Following the excitement and festivities of their wedding day, Rocio wanted one last photo – the coolest dress shot I’ve ever had the opportunity to photograph! Click through for a few more underwater photos with Pete and Rocio!

A wonderful celebration indeed, and I wish you the very best in your life together, Pete and Rocio! It has been so fun getting to know you guys, and I hope to see you in my favorite town of Portsmouth, NH again soon!

JJ and Laura are the sweetest of high school sweethearts, engaged to be married next year!

After waiting out the rainy morning, we had a gorgeous midday walk along the oceanfront near their home in Scituate, MA. Of course I loved including their Great Dane puppy, Munch!

JJ and Laura, congratulations to you both in this exciting time! I’m grateful to your sis for introducing us!
