Karen & Alejandro at Elm Bank

These two are troopers! Despite Alejandro’s hectic work schedule, and Karen caring for their 5-month old, they managed to squeeze in an early morning weekday engagement session at the beautiful Elm Bank in Wellesley. They brought their baby and a babysitter in tow and didn’t mind photographing right through the rain. We ended up with the softest light ever, which was so sweet and lovely, perfect for a laid-back garden shoot. Can’t wait for their Boston wedding (which is coming up soon!!) at Ginger Park in the South End.

Jennifer & Mark at the Boston Athenaeum

Jennifer and Mark love literature, art, history and architecture, so where better to do their engagement session than the Boston Athenaeum. The Boston Athenaeum is a private library, but Jennifer and Mark are members. Even so, we had to be pretty stealthy when photographing, finding little hidden corners and places where there weren’t authors huddled over manuscripts, seriously working on their next novels. Can’t wait for their wedding in a few weeks at the Codman Estate.

Caitlin & Richie at the Willowdale Estate

I always love when I have photographed a couple and then I get the chance to photograph one of their siblings. I start to feel like a member of the family, like a cousin who gets to attend all the weddings. This is how it was with Caitlin and Richie, I had photographed Caitlin’s sister Meghan’s wedding a few years ago. Thanks for having me there guys, it was great to hang out with everyone again!

Location: Willowdale Estate

Flowers: Les Fleurs

Annie & Gopal at the Intercontinental Boston

Annie and Gopal’s gorgeous half-Hindu, half-Jewish wedding was held on the waterfront at the Intercontinental Boston. The weather was postcard-perfect, the colors were vibrant, Annie and Gopal are totally in love, and their friends and family had a rip-roaring party.

Coordination: Desi-gn

Flowers: Spruce Floral

Uplighting: Boston Uplights

Annie’s Henna: Henna by Heather

While Annie and the women were finishing getting ready, Gopal was outside having his baraat, a marriage procession in which he is welcomed by the bride’s family.

The Hindu ceremony was held first, followed by the Jewish ceremony.

Wow. The photos look awesome. I love all of the colors. Great job!

Mary Beth & Susan’s Boston wedding

I always love intimate and personal weddings, and Mary Beth and Susan’s wedding was exactly that. Surrounded by close family members and friends, they were married at Arlington Street Church, and then had their reception at the totally fabulous blu restaurant in downtown Boston.

After the ceremony, everyone walked over to blu,where the cocktail hour was on the terrace and had this amazing view.

We went down to the restaurant for dinner, and the space was simply amazing. A huge bank of windows is basically a photographer’s dream.

Everyone was having a seriously good time.

I was obsessed with this view.

I love these portraits of Mary Beth and Susan, lit only by candlelight and twilight.

Photos of Mary Beth and Susan’s wedding are GORGEOUS. You have a great eye for this work. Congratulations! I want copies of ten photos!

What wonderful photos of Mary Beth and Susan – and all their happy family and friends who were so fortunate to be at their wedding. You really captured the intimacy and true beauty of their day. You’re a terrific, sensitive photographer, Joyelle. Congratulations on creating an absolutely accurate and complete visual account of joyful people at a joyful time. I especially like that you were totally present, but never intrusive. You were especially “professional” when you took the group photo on the church steps – How you managed to get everyone to pay attention – at the same time – is amazing (I love that everyone in that photo is smiling, too!). Thank you so much for “making memories”….

Looks like a fun wedding with a lot of happiness. :) I absolutely love the shot of them with that huge tree behind them and the sun streaming down.

Wow, Stephen, thanks so much for all the kind words! It was definitely a great day to be apart of!
