Wedding of Mackenzie & Dan: Hyland Orchards, Sturbridge MA

This past Saturday I was back inthe beautiful town of Sturbridge Massachusetts to photograph Dan & Mackenzie’s wedding day at Hyland Orchards. This venue is perfect for those looking for a rustic feel and a little more laid back atmosphere. For these two love birds, it was finally time to join their souls and officially call themselves husband and wife.

The ceremony took place up on a hill over looking the onsite apple orchard. As soon as their daughter Reese came down the isle, Dan was just overwhelmed with emotion. As they exchanged vows,  I don’t think there was a dry eye in the house!

The reception took place in Hyland Orchards open pavilion, complete with outdoor games and a huge fire at the end of the night!

I hope you enjoy this little sneak peek into their beautiful wedding day!

Christine & Brian got married this past Sunday on the beautiful grounds of Norton Country Club in Norton Massachusetts. I was able to pick this job up working with Mobile Video and Photography and I feel so fortunate to have had the opportunity to meet and work with this couple.

Wedding of Courtney & Terrel: Danversport Yacht Club, Danvers MA

A sunny day has been tough to come by this wedding season, but this Sunday was one of the few. Courtney and Terrel had the most amazing day at the Danversport Yacht Club in Danvers Massachusetts. They both got ready on site and then blindly met before the ceremony to pray together. The love that these two show for not only themselves, but for god as well, is something that I truly admire about this couple.

They prayed together and recited their vows that afternoon right on the water surrounded by their loved ones. Their reception took place is the stunning Harborview Ballroom and went on into the early evening. From the beautiful sunset to the full moon, this couple had such amazing backdrops throughout the entire day. It was so wonderful that I was able to sneak them away from the reception to take advantage of all of them!

Congratulations Courtney & Terrel!

Thank you For Choosing JMK Portraits to Capture Your Day!!!!

Wedding of Meaghan & Timothy: Colonial Hotel- Gardner MA

This past Saturday was a gorgeous day for a wedding! The sun was out and it was time for Meaghan & Timothy to tie the knot! I started at the bride & groom’s home where Timothy was getting ready with his groomsmen. I put them to work getting ready and we shipped them off to the church in a great big party bus right on time!

When I arrived to where the bride was getting ready, all the details were ready to go! Dresses were hung, jewelry was laid out, and her dress………OMG her dress was hanging and looked absolutely breathtaking! So needless to say once Meg got into her bridal gown everyone was speechless!

The church ceremony took place at the beautiful Our Lady of Angles in Worcester MA. The arches and stained glass in this catholic church is simply incredible! Once they were pronounced husband and wife, the couple made  their way to The Colonial Hotel in Gardner MA for their reception.

As expected, the grounds of the hotel were perfectly manicured and beautiful as always. Once we finished up with the formals and headed back inside to the ballroom for the party….it began to rain! I’m telling you this has been one of the rainiest summers on record it seems! However, this venue has a lot of options for both indoor and outdoor photographs during the rain as well ( which is something for all of you brides currently planning to always consider while picking a venue!) Once the cake was cut, we were able to take advantage of these locations for a few more formals. Of course we had to incorporate the rain too!!!!!

Congrats Meaghan & Timothy! You had such a beautiful day!

Thank you for letting me be apart of it.

Enjoy this little sneak peek from your big day!




Wedding of Shawna & Hector- Elite II Cruise Ship Boston MA

Shawna & Hector……..where do I begin? I had been looking forward to this wedding from the moment I met these two high school sweethearts! Between their love for one another and their personalities, I knew that their day would be truly magical….and it was ;)!

In Boston this past Sunday, the weather was perfect! Bright and sunny with a cool off shore breeze. The couple got ready at The Seaport Hotel. Shawna arrived already looking stunning from the beautiful hair & makeup done by Laura Severino out of Gloucester MA. Once the two of them were dressed, we headed down to the hotel’s Plaza Garden for their first look. After a few photos and a small walk around the shore line, we boarded the beautiful Elite II cruise ship. Their ceremony took place on the upper deck with a stunning view of Rowes Wharf in the distance. The reception space was set up perfectly by the crew and on the center of each table were these magnificent centerpieces made by Brian at The Valley Florist.

Just when I  thought the day couldn’t get any better, I looked out the window during the toasts to see this breathtaking sunset! Apparently so did the bride and groom because as soon as the toasts were over we booked it to the upper deck to take advantage 🙂

Guys you two were made for each other! Thank you Thank you for letting me be apart of your fairytale wedding! I wish you both nothing but the best!

Now enjoy this little sneak peek into their day!


Wedding of Ashley & Akeem- Mechanics Hall Worcester Massachusetts

On Saturday I picked up a wedding working with The Pros because I had an opportunity to finally shoot a wedding at Mechanics Hall in Worcester Ma! Ashley & Akeem got ready at a hotel in the area and exchanged vows at the Fist Baptist Church on Park Ave. They rented a stunning Rolls Royce that we took advantage of for some of their formals. It was such a pleasure working with my second shooter Julia as well as my good videographer friend Preston Alexander.

I hope you enjoy this sneak peek into Ashley & Akeems Day
