Asheley Clark - Music Shoot

One of my nearest & dearest friends also happens to be an amazing musician. I have done some promotional photoshoots for her previously, but as her music has evolved new photos are needed! (And who doesn't love new photos anyways?! Come on, people!)

Anywho, we recently headed out on the town to get some fun images that represent Asheley (her funloving, crazy & insanely-talented-self) and her new album. Check her out!

Here are a few shots.... You'll have to check out her site again at a later date for more!

Luke & Michelle - Engagement Photos

As I mentioned in my previous post, I recently returned from Massachusetts after shooting a wedding there. While there, I also had a blast with Luke & Michelle photographing their engagement photos!
I'm pretty sure Michelle has the best personality in the world. Legit. (Thought I'd slide that word in their for you New-England-ers :o) She oozes joy, compassion, sincerity.... I could go on. She's really just THAT awesome. Luke is one lucky guy! And you know I think you're equally as fab, Luke :o)
These two have been sweethearts for quite a long time and I'm so happy that they are now engaged! They truly make a perfect couple- Enjoy a few sneak-peak shots guys.... A few of my fave's from the day!

Laura & Ryan - Wedding

I just returned from photographing a wedding in Dedham, Massachusetts. Never before have I cried more while shooting a wedding than this one. Never. At one point I was feeling super embarrassed thinking about what the people around me probably thought of this crazy choked-up photographer. But alas, the tears still came.

This was a beautiful wedding from beginning to end.... Not just because the couple is absolutely stunning, but also because of the strong, almost tangible sense of love. Both of the couples are blessed with amazing parents whom I admired throughout the day. Between their families, great friends and Laura & Ryan themselves, you could almost cut the love in the air with a knife. It was just awesome.

Here are a few shots of their big day.... Tune in next week for a sneak peak of an engagement session that I also had while in Mass!

.....To Laura & Ryan, thank you so much for allowing me to be a part of this major time of your life - You were such a joy to spend time with and to photograph! xoxo - Amanda

I adored Laura's Melissa Sweet wedding gown!

I couldn't pass up the opportunity to play off the vintage feel from her beautiful birdcage veil...

Ryan prepping himself to see his bride!

Details, details!

Laura & her sweet dad escorting his baby girl down the aisle...

A speechless and tearful Ryan seeing his bride for the first time... (This is when my tears began!)

Thankfully, Laura's dad (& the couple's Pastor) lightened things up a few times to relieve us all from the tears for a few moments...

The new Mr & Mrs!

More moments to make me cry like a little girl.... Mother/Son and Father/Daughter dances..... It certainly didn't help that Ryan's (gorgeous) mom was singing the words to him as they danced. Just about the cutest thing ever....

The fabulous wedding party..... I thoroughly enjoyed each from this crazy group!

Congrats again guys!
