I’m just a little over two weeks into being a full-time photographer and life is good because I get to work with dream couples who become my friends. I am seriously so lucky to work with people who never make work feel like work. You know when you meet someone for the first time but you leave feeling like you’ve known them forever? That’s how I felt the first time I met Michalene and Chris. From the second we started chatting over drinks, I knew we were the perfect fit for each other and to be honest, didn’t want to stop drinking and hanging out with them (just a little bit obsessed lol). And then after we met up again for their engagement session, I was counting down the days until they were getting married on June 16th because I couldn’t wait to document their love again. Just as I envisioned it would, their wedding day turned out to be the most wonderful celebration of these two 8th grade sweethearts becoming Mr. and Mrs. Hardy!
I had the best day hanging out with Michalene, Chris, and their whole wedding party running around Boston making all of my middle of the street pictures come true! I seriously could’ve taken portraits of Michalene and Chris for hours because these two are just so cute and fun together. I included way more portraits in this post than I normally do because they were all too good not to! Their celebration at Hotel Commonwealth and Our Lady of Good Voyage was absolutely perfect from beginning to end and it was such an honor to be there to document all the love and joy that surrounded this amazing couple. Michalene and Chris, thank you for trusting me to capture your love! I am so excited to share all of my favorite images from this beautiful day!
