Did you know that 42% of people no longer create photo albums? It used to be you’d take your roll of film to the counter at the drug store or the local photo lab, and in a day or a week, you’d come back and have a fresh stack of 24 or 48 prints. You’d slide your favorites into an album, and maybe send the duplicates to friends or family.

But now, 57% of us store photos on our phone or computer. Which can be great, until you lose your phone or your hard-drive dies. My parents lost five years of photos that way.

So this winter, I encourage you to spend some time making prints. It’s on my January to-do list too. And if you need some help creating something extra-special for your wedding album, I’m happy to help!

Here’s a peek at the albums I created for Laura and Tom, from their Liberty Hotel wedding this past June. Their 9×12 giclée album has a lustrous Asahi silk cover in indigo, with their names embossed in rose gold. The two parent albums are sized 6×8, and were gifted at Christmas.

I met Andrew back in high school. He was the new smart kid in class, who came in talking a mile a minute, with a love of Dave Mathews Band and the Toronto Blue Jays. The last I saw him was when he arrived in Cambridge a half-dozen years ago to start a history PhD at Harvard. Over the summer, Facebook showed me that he had proposed to his girlfriend in Venice. “How romantic,” I thought. And then one day, I answered the phone to hear “Hi, my name is Claire, I’m calling to find out about wedding photography.” I eventually put the pieces together, and was delighted to sit down with the two of them and hear about their story.

Andrew and Claire met during graduate school. Settlers of Catan was involved, though Andrew still doesn’t know how to play. Claire has come around to the Blue Jays, but still says no to DMB. Andrew came around to Claire’s love for archeology when he realized he could travel with her without doing any of the dirty work. She’s also imparted her love of running, and these two have completed marathons together.

I met up with them at their Cambridge apartment on Claire’s favorite day of the year – Halloween. They put on a Strumbellas record, poured some wine, and played with their three kitties – Ariadne, Hobbes and Josephine. We then walked around Mount Auburn Cemetery, accompanied by the silly strains of The Monster Mash and other tunes from Claire’s Halloween playlist. I loved seeing the lighthearted way they interacted, and I’m so excited to be photographing their wedding in New Orleans next month!

Hildene wedding of Morgan and Andy in Manchester, VT | Kelly Benvenuto Photography | Boston Wedding Photographer

There’s the kind of romance that’s about falling in love – dinners out and day trips and deep conversations. And then there’s the kind of romance of being in love. Actively loving someone, day in and day out, over months and years. Morgan and Andy have been together for 11 years, so at their Hildene wedding, it’s that second kind of love that was aknowledged and celebrated. Their heartfelt vows had many guests tearing up.

Manchester, Vermont is such a quaint New England town, perfect for a weekend’s celebration in September. Morgan got ready at her parents’ home, while Andy was at the nearby Equinox Resort. They had their first look amidst a field of goldenrod on the grounds at Hildene, the trees showing just a hint of fall color.

Everywhere you looked at Hildene there was beauty. Guests walked through the colorful formal gardens to the ceremony site, which offered views of the Green Mountains. Cocktail hour was held on the patio. And as the sun sank below the horizon, the party moved into the tent.

One of the best things about this wedding was seeing all the loving gestures throughout the day. The excitement as Andy swept Morgan off her feet at the end of the ceremony. The pride Morgan’s mom and dad showed during the toasts. The big hugs Andy and his mom shared at the end of the hora and parents dances. The affection between both of their moms, who seemed like best friends. It’s clear that these two have so much love in their lives worth celebrating.

From Boston’s red-brick streets to Vermonts green slopes, from beaches to parks to graveyards (yes, a graveyard), from the comfort of home to a favorite running path and neighborhood bar, these are just some of the places in which I met with couples this year to make engagement photos. When you make portraits in a place that is part of your life – in this very moment – the images will hold so much more value when you look back. As we explored these locations together, I witnessed many shared smiles, snuggles, and laughs. Here’s a look back at some of my favorite engagement images from 2017, and a preview of the joy yet to come.

2017 marked my sixth year of photographing weddings. I witnessed celebrations all over New England. From intimate city hall weddings, to historic estates and hotels, to barns and tents and museums, from Martha’s Vineyard to Vermont. It was a year so full of beautiful variety.

Sometimes I’m asked my favorite type of wedding to photograph, and the fact is, it has very little to do with the venue and everything to do with the people. Couples who adore each other and their families, who put their imprint on the planning, and who fully-embody their emotions as the day unfolds are my favorite.

So here’s a look at some of the hugs, kisses, laughs, gasps, tears, moments, details and scenes that have stuck with me from my 2017 wedding season. Thank you for allowing me into your lives, being your true selves in front of my cameras, introducing me to some of your favorite places, and inviting me to document these wonderful days for you and your families.
