Eileen + Danny || Grounds for Sculpture Weddings

It’s been a wonderful wedding season so far. The only downside with us being so busy is our inability to find time and blog more. Thankfully, we’ve been spend some very late nights trying to catchup on our blog. This one is for you, Eileen and Danny!

When advising our couples in the months leading up to the actual wedding day, one of the things we emphasize most is setting aside “us time”. That is, making sure the couple has some time alone- time for portraits, snacking on food, or simply a nap on the couch in between transitions. This advice serves two benefits: one, it gives the couple a much needed breather from the exciting (and sometimes chaotic) jam-packed events that comprise the wedding day, and two, it allows them to share in the wedding excitement together, as it is happening. Often, we find that these moments alone are what our couples cherish the most, because they can unwind and take it all in, even if only for a minute. For those of you reading this who are currently planning their wedding, consider building in some “us time” in the midst of your schedules. You’ll be thankful you did.

A few weeks back, we joined Eileen and Danny for their incredible wedding celebration at the one-of-a-kind Grounds for Sculpture. The beautiful mix of summer and autumn weather helped cap off a great day already filled with festivities, love, dancing and cupcakes. Check out some of our favorite images from their day.

Alissa + Chris || Boston Engagement Session

There’s a first time for everything. For starters, it was Dreamlite’s first opportunity to photograph a couple in the wonderful city of Boston. For Chris and Alissa, their location of choice was a homage to their first date. With a love story that traces its beginnings to Honduras, it goes without saying that this engagement session was particularly special for everybody.

Alissa and Chris first met while serving with Signs of Love, an incredible non-profit Deaf ministry situated in the coastal city of La Ceiba, Honduras. Though Jon partnered with the same ministry doing photography work back in 2011 + 2012, the three never had a chance to serve together in the years that followed. As the story goes, Alissa and Chris’ friendship carried over stateside, staying in touch as they lived their own lives in Massachussetts and Florida. Eventually, Alissa visited Chris in Boston, where she boldly challenged him with the question, “What am I doing here?” And so, their first date in Boston also marked the beginning of a new chapter in their story.

For their engagement session, we ventured through some spectacular areas in Boston. We began our session in the Beacon Hill neighborhood, a charming and historic part of town. Surrounded by sloping row homes and cobblestone streets, it certainly felt as if we had stepped back in time. From there, we wandered through Boston Commons, Commonwealth Avenue Mall, and topped off our session overlooking the Charles River.

Alissa and Chris: we cannot wait to photograph your wedding in Florida later this summer!

Carl + Helen || Philadelphia Engagements

Helen and Carl are an incredibly unique + fun couple, and we’re so glad to be working with them. When they asked to have their engagement session at Boathouse Row, we thought, “Okay, sounds good. Historic part of Philadelphia.. picturesque.. staple Philly tourist destination… sounds like a solid idea.” Then we learned it wasn’t just photos near the historic Boathouse Row, but rather photos inside Boathouse Row. Being both a professional rower and a member of one of the boathouses, Helen’s membership made taking photos along the docks possible.

Before heading to Boathouse Row, Helen + Carl opted for a much more green location. With a shared love for the outdoors, we decided upon Wissahickon Valley Park, located not too far from Philadelphia. Afterwards, we ventured towards the Boathouse Row side of Philly. While the sun was still strong, we found some colorful spring blossoms for some really neat portraits. It’s hard to tell from the photos, but we did the photos right along Kelly Drive, all-the-while rush hour traffic was crawling on by.

We capped off our night with some incredible Mexican food (and a hefty portion of nachos), a much needed reprieve from an evening of photos.

Congratulations once again to Carl and Helen. We’re very much looking forward to celebrating your big day in Texas later this Autumn!
