We’re very excited to share this beautiful Boston session! We met Anny and Hung at a wedding in late July (Christina and Arkady’s castle wedding is soon to follow!) and they asked if we would be able to do a couple’s session with them while they were in town. The only hitch is that they were going back home to Houston, Texas in two days. So, we drove down early Monday morning to shoot for a couple hours in the city before they flew away. We had so much fun kicking around Boston with these guys and consider ourselves quite privileged to have gotten to know them a bit. Not only are they the most insanely gorgeous couple but they are kind as could be! A few fun facts: 1. They are newlyweds, married just a couple weeks before we met! 2. Hung is a hard-core athlete (like Iron Man kinda’ stuff! …notice his nod to the tortoise and the hare in one of our images) and 3. Anny is an elementary school teacher with an affinity for thrift store shopping and I would be remiss if I did not mention that her shirt was purchased for $1.00! I don’t think anyone has made Good Will look more beautiful. ;)

Anny and Hung, we hope you had as much fun as we did and we’re so excited to finally share the fruits of our labor with you. Thanks for being such wonderful folks! Enjoy….

One of the things we love about what we do is experiencing the unique personality of each wedding. Bobby & Nicole’s Lake Winnipesaukee wedding at Church Landing in Meredith, New Hampshire, featured a giant dancing fireman along with real dancing firemen (though not suited up as was their inflatable cohort), which was great because it was so nice to see the men that protect us from all kinds of peril having a fun time together! Other elements included a cool vintage Mercedes Benz and some images snapped on a fancy boat at the invitation of some friendly strangers. It was also a gorgeous day for two people to share the ultimate expression of love and commitment and friends and family were there in full force to complete an epic day for our couple. Here’s how we saw it…

And the weddings roll on… to Kateri and Greg and their lovely July day!

We met Kateri and Greg at a wedding last September (happy anniversery Ryan & Jessica!), though we did not realize at the time that we would have the privilege of documenting their day 10 months down the road! So, we got to “re-meet” them earlier this year in a little coffee shop by the ocean and learn of their plans of coalescence…

It turns out, they’re just great! Like, really good folk. From our first meeting to the wedding day, they were an absolute joy to be around and to see other people be around (if that makes sense). It’s just that you can tell what truly good people they are and how much they care for others. So…. that’s good. :)

Of course, time passed quickly, as it always does, from our coffee shop meeting and it was marrying time! The wedding was held at The Granite Rose in Hampstead, NH and they did a wonderful job of keeping things running smoothly and accommodating everyone. During the day, leading up to the ceremony, I heard Kateri say a few times: “I can’t wait to marry Greg” and I thought that was great…to be so fully focused on that part, the real part. Unfortunately, there was some minor precipitation happening but everyone braved it for a beautiful outdoor ceremony in the garden. The ensuing reception was great and many thanks to DJ/guitarist, Mr. Tom Bruhl for keeping the feet moving! We also definitely witnessed some air guitar by the lovely bride! So, it was a good day.

We got a phone call from Kateri a couple days after her wedding, just asking us how we felt the day went. She said that she wanted to make sure everyone enjoyed themselves because, in her words: “…all I could see was Greg.” And this is my favorite part of the story because it is a very genuine person that cares enough to know another’s perspective and it made me quite happy to be able to tell her it was fantastic! We are sure Kateri and Greg will be almost intolerably happy, doing nice things for each other, forever. :)

Congratulations guys, and thank you for including us in your day! Here’s how we saw it…

Quite a few of our couples are from out of the area and come back to New England to have their wedding in their hometown, near their friends and family or just because they love the natural beauty that resides here. Occasionally, they book us over the phone or Internet and the first time we meet face-to-face is on their wedding day. This was the case with Tim and Kim. They live in Las Vegas, but have roots here in New Hampshire. Because of the distance and busy schedules, we weren’t able to meet them until the very day they were getting married. Let us say, that despite never having met us before, they welcomed us to their special day with an abundance of kindness and warmth and any feelings of unfamiliarity between us quickly dissipated! Needless to say, this made photographing their beautiful day a joy and we believe that joy shines through in these images. This was also our first time shooting at the Bedford Village Inn and the day went smoothly thanks to the friendly professionalism exhibited by the staff there.

The day was punctuated by the special bond Kim and her family has, her Sisters were all bridesmaids and kept things lively and fun. Also ever-present, was the camaraderie Tim shared with his groomsman. I unwittingly kind of broke up a practical joke that would’ve made for an interesting situation during the ceremony when I asked Tim’s best man Gary for the rings to photograph them. What I, as well as he, didn’t know, was that the rings had been swiped from his jacket! Have to say, it was fun watching him desperately search for them until Tim let him off the hook…I have a great picture of that, which I’m pretty sure is going to appear on Facebook shortly :) Anyway, congrats to you, Kim & Tim! We were honored that you chose Birch Blaze to help you hang on to the great memories of this day!

Ben and Katie are just good human beings. That should be noted. They are the sort of people that are perpetually kind and as fellow humans, we really loved that about them. So, we are a special kind of excited to share their lovely wedding. We met them through our friend and wildly talented wedding filmmaker, Meg Simone. (Check her out!) We are thankful to Meg for putting us all in touch and as always, were glad to be working alongside her for Ben and Katie’s wedding.

In April, we got the chance to shoot their engagement session in Crawford Notch in the beautiful White Mountains of New Hampshire. It was a fitting location because Ben and Katie are accomplished hikers. They have both hiked all the 4,000 footers in NH… Katie, having started her mountaineering career as just a little girl. Clearly, the mountains are near and dear to their hearts and so their wedding was held at the gorgeous Mount Washington Hotel in Bretton Woods, NH. And it was perfect. Well, aside from the black fly apocalypse that was occurring outside, it was perfect. (Much thanks to the couple for enduring such things for the sake of photos!) Katie is a graphic designer and actually designed and made her own invitations, which were beautiful! A great detail, among many. Of course, they both looked wonderful and truly happy as they were surrounded by all the ones who loved them on a pretty June day. We want to thank Ben and Katie for the privilege of being a part of their day and wish them joy and love that grows so big they can hike up it someday. ;)
