Mark & Serena's Wedding

A couple weeks ago, I had the opportunity to second shoot with another local photographer, and now dear friend, Erica Pelaccia. She and I are connected through a whole random slew of people and it was about time we finally met and got to hang out! I had such a great time shooting with her and getting to know her over the course of the day.

And as for Mark and Serena, they are just wonderful! You could just see in their faces, and in everyone's faces, that these two are so in love with each other and so dearly loved by all who were there. Here are a few of my favorites...

During the portraits, since I was second shooting, I was able to hang back and shoot with my 80-200mm lens and just catch some of the details and moments that were going on. I love second shooting!

Isn't she gorgeous?!

The ceremony took place at Highrock, their church in Arlington.

I even shot a little panoramic film with my Widelux during the day, just for fun...

The part where they greeted their parents was one of the most emotional and beautiful parts of the day.

A few details from our portrait session with the two of them at their reception site - the Habitat Wildlife Sanctuary in Belmont.

And there's Erica, working it in the bushes :)

A couple more shots of black & white film

The reception was really fun! I love this shot of Mark as they made their big entrance. I think it says it all.

And a sweet moment during their first dance.

Thank you, Erica for inviting me to come along for the day - it was so wonderful shooting with you and hanging out with you!

And thanks to Mark & Serena for letting me be part of your wedding! It was really great meeting you and being with you and your families on this joyful day!
