My photo
Hi! My name is Erica and I am a photographer from Boston who loves taking pictures of weddings, kids, families, you name it. This blog is a great place to keep up on what I have been up to, from my latest shoots, to my random adventures. I want to thank all the people that support my dreams and help them come true. Thank you to all of the couples who have included me in their special day. I have been so lucky to have the coolest clients on the planet, and couldn't ask for anything more. Thank you so much for visiting!

    Allison & Randall | Ever After

    Yowza grab a cup of coffee and a comfy chair and get ready for a long post! Let me start this day out with the super gorgeous Ally handing out some beautiful bridesmaids gifts.
    Yes, that's right, they got ready and had their ceremony at a Car Museum!
    What an awesome setting.

    This one reminds me of vintage hollywood a bit!
    Dick Tracy? Anyone else?

    Not gonna lie, might have been a little risky putting the flowers on a car worth more than my life, but loving the result.
    First look was so sweet.

    Work it, work it!!

    Man, this definitely falls in the top 2% of favorite first kiss pictures ever!!

    I couldn't get enough of these two
    My first experience with lion dancing and I couldn't get the smile off my face!
    No grooms were hurt in the following picture...

    Okay, so Randall throws the garter....
    No one catches it and it remains a mystery to this day where it ended up because no one could find it!!!

    1.) What was your favorite moment from your wedding day? Ally? Randall?
    Ally: It's so hard to choose! The entire day was magical, but I would say listening to the wonderful toasts with Randall by my side. It was the only time during the reception we were able to soak it all in and we loved what everyone had to say!
    Randall: Standing up there with Ally during our ceremony and then laughing when she couldn't break her glass at the end!

    *erica: I loved Randall's mom's speech (she is adorable), and all the traditions of the day that were brand new to me (Tea ceremony, Lion Dancing, etc.). Oh, and Allison's three dresses. Definitely.

    2.) What was the funniest moment?
    One of our ring bearers, Henry, age 3, walked halfway down the isle covering his eyes and veering to the right (bumping into chairs along the way) while our very brave flower girl, Ashlyn, also just 3, tried to pull him in the right direction!

    *erica: Definitely when the garter went missing. That was hilarious!

    3.) Favorite wedding purchase?
    Ally: My custom-made qipao (traditional Chinese dress) - I put my own twist on it by doing an a-line skirt and small train rather than a straight skirt with slits. One of my bridesmaids referred to it as my "Chinese Disney Princess Dress" - it was hot pink and gold and oh-so-much-fun to wear!
    Randall: Does Erica count? She went above and beyond to capture our special day!

    *erica: I swear I didn't pay him to say that :) My answer is their venue choices.

    4.) Any advice for future brides and grooms?
    Don't offer shots at the bar. Good times, but bad news.


    1. Awesome job, as usual. Looks like a lot of fun.

    2. Beautiful pictures and great advice #4

    3. What a great shoot E! I want to see this Chinese Disney Princess Dress, it sounds beautiful!

    4. Absolutely gorgeous photos!!! This couple is adorable.

    5. What a unique wedding! Beautifully captured! :)
