• David + Deborah

This post took longer  than normal to post because it was like I was posting a full, real wedding!! There are just so many that I LOVE! So several months ago, during the summer, I get an email from David. He asked if there was ANY way I would be interested in flying to Boston to surprise his wife with a portrait session. Now, this wasn’t going to be any normal portrait session, it was more like a “day-after” session.  They were going to get back into their wedding attire and recreate images to remember that special day! …. and that special day happened 5 YEARS AGO! You may be thinking, what in the world?! Why go to all the

trouble?! Well, Debbie is a photographer and started her business AFTER she planned her own wedding. Her expectation of what a GREAT image should look like has significantly changed over the last 5 years. So David, being the amazing husband that he is, emails me and we plan this shoot. He gave this to her as her anniversary gift and we planned on shooting at the end of August. Well guess what happened at the end of August!… IRENE!! The hurricane totally destroyed our plans but we were able to reschedule for October and I’m SO glad we did because Debbie’s hair is the same color as the changing leaves and it made for GORGEOUS pictures! We shot all over the property of Misslewood and it was perfect. I was squealing and shooting and getting WAY too close to the edge of the cliffs! But oh, it was SO worth it. These two got to do what many people NEVER get to. They got to experience a piece of their wedding day all over again. As they sat on the edge of the cliffs, side by side, Debbie told David “This is perfect.”.  And it was…the weather, the location…it was a wonderful experience. I’m so honored that they asked me to come up for this shoot. So SO honored. There are some amazing photographers in New England and yet, they asked this crazy redhead to fly up for the day. That still baffles me! AND they took me into Boston for dinner and an amazing red velvet cupcake that I shouldn’t have eaten! (Vacation right? It’s ok)  I wish Michael could have been there!!!


Debbie and I don’t JUST share bright red hair…. we have a love for the photography industry and over the course of the 30 some hours of my trip, I think we talked about every aspect of our businesses. Poor David. Not only did he have to listening to discussions about outsourcing and flashdrives, he had also had to watch The SingOff with the two of us that night!  He’s a good sport and his support of Debbie’s business reminded me so much of Michael. Deb, we’re so lucky to have men like that in our life! So look at your images and give David a big hug and kiss for thinking of such an amazing anniversary gift!! It was such an fun trip and I absolutely LOVED our time together!!!


ps. Debbie and I met at WPPI one year…. I believe at Jasmine’s first WPPI session and I was OVERJOYED that someone ACTUALLY checked blog!!! So if any of you photogs out there are on the fence about WPPI, you never know what connections you’ll make and where it will take you in the future!!:) So enjoy SEVERAL favorites from this new england shoot!! I need a bigger office so I can have more sample canvases!!!!! ah!

Loved these purple pumps!

A first look! Why not?! We made this as close to a wedding day experience as possible! 

oh you two…. goshhhh

It was WINDY!!! And I loved it!

Ahhh! Holy cliffs and BLUE skies! I was in heaven!


Debbie you are so gorgeous! And that HAIR! It’s beautiful… but I’m also a little biased!

Love it!

A fav for sure!


The man behind it all! Well done David!!
