Montana and Poul

Montana and Poul eloped last July in Denmark (Poul’s home country) but decided, why not still have a party? So I was able to document the festivities at the Commandant’s House last weekend. I think they get the award for most original songs composed for a wedding celebration! (For details on that, keep reading!)


The desserts were all Danish pastry, of course.

Montana looking lovely in all her casual elegance.

Since the Commandant’s House is right on the Navy Yard, the guests were able to take a tour of the USS Constitution.

Lawn games, anyone?

So now for the story about the songs. It’s a Danish tradition that the mother of the groom composes an original song, and she and the guests sing it to the couple at the reception. So here’s Poul’s lovely Danish mother belting out a tune.

So, going along with tradition, Montana’s mother figures she’d do it as well (even though she’s American). The crowd was roaring during her song which told the story of Montana and Poul and was set to the music of the Beatles “Ob-la-di Ob-la-di. Life Goes on”.

The chorus. . .

The party continues!

A special shout-out goes to Off the Vine catering for their wonderful food, service, and timing! Very impressive.

Montana and Poul, thanks for having me share in your celebration!

Spring is in bloom

Last week the cherry blossoms and flowering trees were in full bloom around Boston, so it was the perfect time for an outdoor spring shoot! I teamed up with the lovely Jennifer Ottenberg, who needed some photos of her extraordinary makeup skills. Here are some photos of Jennifer, along with photos of our other model Samantha (who helped provide an urban contrast to the spring look, as you’ll see below).

If anyone would like to contact Jennifer regarding her makeup services, you can reach her at

I love photographing in Newport, so when my fabulous friend and fellow photographer Ashley O’Dell asked if I would like to join her photographing a wedding there, my answer was a resounding “yes!”. It was one of those perfect spring days, and it was a pleasure to be shooting a fantastic wedding alongside a dear friend. Here are a few of my favorites:
