Ashley & Tina: A Rand Bryan House Wedding

Posted by on Nov 11, 2015 in Weddings | No Comments

We met Tina & Ashley for the first time almost two years ago (so hard to believe!) for coffee at Parker & Otis.  Ashley was incredibly organized, and her vision for their day was clear.  She planned to do almost all of it herself, so a two year engagement was perfect for them.  It was […]

Two years ago we visited Oxford Preparatory School for the first time, and loved spending the day there learning more about their vision and mission. At the time, it was their very first year of operation, and had only a month under their belts. While they didn’t have a whole lot of proof (yet), they […]

Six years ago on a visit up north to see family in Maine, my aunt recommended a book called ‘The Kind Diet’, by Alicia Silverstone.  (And as someone who was a teenager when Clueless came out, the fact that she wrote the book was even more compelling, I’m not gonna lie.)  The book is backed […]

Our favorite parts? THE. TOASTS.  Every one […]

With a background in education and teacher development, I get pretty pumped every time we get to partner with cool organizations to feature incredible teachers and schools.  (Check out our past projects with CarolinaCAN, KIPP ENC, Oxford Prep, Maureen Joy Charter School to see what I’m talking about.) So this year, right at the start of the school […]

Khanh & Hai

We love wedding traditions.  And in a time where many couples are putting their own spins on weddings, we still see many traditions present at almost every wedding we shoot.  There’s something wonderful about doing some of the same things your parents and grandparents did at their weddings, and hopefully the same things your children […]
