Nicole O'Neil Photography
I first met Devon online. We were both taking a class through the University of Phoenix online program going for our teaching degree. We stayed in touch and when she got engaged to Brian, I was flattered she contacted me and asked me to take her pics. This was last year. We had to cancel our session due to the October snow storm (2011) and because of rescheduling issues, we decided that we would just do them this year since they are not getting married until June 2013. We met at Borderland State Park in Easton which is a favorite place of mine in that area. Devon cracks me up because she is full of energy and was VERY energetic and anxious about pictures. She calmed a bit after a few pics and we had a great shoot wandering around the grounds of the park. Brian is totally laid back and was up for whatever we made him do. I can't wait to capture their wedding in June! ENJOY!
I first heard from Jill right after the holidays. She was looking for a wedding photographer and had been referred to me by a mutual friend. We met on a snowy day in Boston and they told me some bad experiences they had looking for a photographer. I was happy they felt comfortable and happy with my communication and what I offer. We chatted over coffee and finalized things and, as I do all my clients, I immediately loved them.
It was a hot summer day with clear skies for the wedding! I traveled to Manchester, NH with my second shooter, Nicole Hirsch where we split up. I went to take photos of Jill and the ladies at the Hilton Garden Inn while Nicole went to Jill's parent's house to capture the guys. Jill is beautiful in general and just became even more stunning once she put on her gorgeous gown.
The ceremony was at the First Congregational Church in Manchester followed by pictures at Wagner Park and the reception at Fratello's.
There is so much love between these two and surrounding them, which was obvious from start to finish. ENJOY!
This is the beautiful brooch that belonged to Jill's grandmother. It was a sentimental and stunning addition to her flowers, and allowed her to have a piece of her grandmother with her on her special day.
The next two of Shawn and his bow tie/cufflinks were taken by Nicole Hirsch, who was my second shooter.
I was very excited when Jen contacted me to do her wedding. Not only is she just a fabulous person in general, but she is also a cousin. Jen and Rob have been together FOREVER and seem even more in love every time I see them. They are perfect together. We did their engagement shoot back in the summer and a joke came out of it. Rob never has any idea what to do with his hand to a point where he actually makes it look awkward. (Love you Rob!) And, no matter how many times I told him to keep it in his pocket unless I said otherwise, the hand made many appearances and I will share some of those fun pics below.
I knew this wedding would be a ton of fun and I was not disappointed. Rob, Jen, and the rest of the wedding party were up for anything. We had a long stretch of time to do the photos, so there was no stress or rushed feelings (which always helps!). And, by the time we got to Danvesport Yacht Club, it was the golden hour, so the lighting was absolutely perfect. Everything about this wedding was amazing, from how great they all looked to how much love was present to how much fun everyone had from beginning to end. I feel blessed to have been a part of capturing such a momentous day for such an amazing couple.
There's nothing like the first moment he sees her coming down the aisle.
The HAND made an appearance during the ceremony....
And there's the HAND again....
Two favorites. Love how much fun they had.
"I'm not sure what to do with my hands."
She is SO gorgeous!
When Stacy contacted me last winter and said she wanted me to photograph her wedding, I was excited. I've known Stacy for about 10 years or so. What I loved most about the day is that Stacy was so laid back. She had a "whatever, if things go wrong it's no big deal, i'm just ready to get married" attitude. The colors were gorgeous and the wedding took place outdoors at Pat's Peak in NH. There was no wedding party so the photos were completely focused on Stacy and Nate and their families. Everyone had a great time and most importantly, so did the Bride and Groom.
You'll also notice I'm favoring black and white in this post. I go back and forth between being in love with all color and being in love with all B&W. Well, I'm on a b&w kick. And, there's something about wedding and romantic pictures in black and white, don't you think??? ENJOY!
Knowing Stacy for a long time, I knew that I could say, "Give me some attitude" and she'd not only do it perfectly, but love every second of it. The next couple are the result. Great, huh?
When it came to asking who gives her away, her dad got all choked up. That was the FIRST moment I got choked up...as well as everyone there. He certainly loves his girl.
Loved the little pumpkins.
