And thank you for visiting! Bellophoto is a photography & design studio based in Mashpee, MA, here on beautiful Cape Cod, but we love to travel and are available for wedding destinations worldwide.

We started our blog to share with you our latest work, highlighting our fabulous bello couples, families and other special projects, but this blog has quickly become a labor of love and a place where our hearts are exposed for the world to see. We hope the stories we share here will inspire you as much as the moments we capture. So browse through the posts, check the archives, leave comments and spread the love. We’d look forward to hearing from you!

A couple of weeks ago, we had the pleasure of reuniting with one of our bello families, whom we hadn’t seen in five years. Nora had reached out to us in the spring and said that she & her husband, Johnny, who live in England with their now three kids (they only had one when we saw them last), would be returning to the Cape in July/August, to visit with Nora’s family and were we available to do another family session at the beach. Ummmmm, let me think about that. YES!!!

We just love when we get to see our special families again, and Nora’s family is REALLY wonderful. They are warm, kind, sweet, funny, salt-of-the-Earth people and we loved getting to spend some time with them again.

In addition to Nora & Johnny and their three crazy cute kids, Jack, Madison & Will, we also got to see Nora’s lovely sister, Karen, and her wonderful kids, Nicole & James, who are the kind of kids who make me want to have kids….if they could be just like them! They are so sweet with their mom and each other, and really anyone they meet. I wanted to put them all in my pocket and take them home with me.

We also got to see Nora’s wonderful parents Cheryl and Garry again, and learned that Garry is really quite an impressive fine art/landscape photographer. Digital has totally changed photography and today everyone fancies themselves a photographer. But, Garry, he’s no joke. An architect by trade, his creative mind is truly a beautiful thing and the work he shared blew my socks off (reminds me of someone else I know…Terri!). I totally want to go to his next show when he has one…..really impressive. I’ll be sure to share the info when I get it for any other photography buff out there!

Nora’s older brother, Greg, was also back from Colorado for some family fun, this time with his beautiful new bride, Thahn. These two are soooo cute together! We’re so happy for them both! We also got to say hello to some other family members we’d met before, but who weren’t participating in this year’s session.

Without further ado…here’s a look at our time with this wonderful family!

Karen’s relationship with her children is so inspiring. There is obvious love, respect and adoration for one another that seems to transcend the often challenging relationships kids & their parents sometimes have. Similarly, Nicole & James are soooo cute together. We had done a photo of them years ago, holding hands along the shore and they asked us this time if they could do something similar. We, of course, said, YES! And, I nearly added, “Only if I can give you both a big, fat kiss when we’re done!” I mean what 15/10 year olds do you know would want to do this? These two are sweeter than sugar! Just love them!

Are they a cute family or what??????

Sweet Jack was just a babe when we saw him last. Now, he is a delightful six year old, who loves collecting shells, showing off his killer karate moves and spending time with family. Honestly, I could eat him up. After the photos were done, and we were back at the house saying goodbye, he pulled me aside and asked if he could show me something alone. He instructed me to sit and then did a series of karate moves, ending with a spin on the floor and giving me a great big hug. I nearly cried….Swoooon! The Queen of this lovely bunch is Cheryl, who clearly has done a stellar job of raising some pretty wonderful children, who are now busy raising pretty wonderful children of their own, one by one making the world a brighter place. Thank you Cheryl and Garry!!!!! And Happy Anniversary!!! You two are an inspiration!!

Johnny, Nora, Maddie, Jack & Will. Love these guys!!

Hi happy gang….

When we got back to the house they’d rented, Nora wanted to show me a photo in one of the UK magazines of Prince William’s son wearing the same outfit Nora had purchased for Will especially for the photo session with us. Adorable! We thought it might be fun to do a little ‘Who Wore It Best’ like they so often do in the tabloids.  What do you think? Prince George or Sir Will? My vote easily goes to wee Will. (Prince George photo by James Whatling Pool/Getty Images)

Sweet Will getting some serious lovin’ from his attentive older siblings.

Madison & Jack….LOOOOVE!

Our newlyweds, Greg & Thahn…..happy, in love & just the sweetest!

Sometimes the kids in our sessions are really intrigued by what we do, and more specifically our cameras. So, we often let them take a peek behind the lens. Jack was really into it, especially when I told him that his composition in the photo he took (on the right) was awesome, and followed the rule of thirds, which I explained to him is when you divide your scene into thirds both vertically & horizontally and then place your subject in one of the corner points. He seemed really chuffed with himself and he should have been. How great is that photo he took of his gorgeous momma and baby brother? (OK, I admit to adjusting the settings before handing him the camera, but still…he totally connected with his subjects and that is always a key ingredient in an awesome photo!)

Of course, Maddie wanted a turn too, so I placed the settings where they needed to be, showed her where to look and which button to press and off she went. I must admit, letting the kids play with the camera is as much about keeping them excited & into what we’re doing as it is about giving me a chance for some snuggle time…

My turn for a close up of Will…..those eyes!!! And, those cheecks! Too much!

A little one on one time with James & Nicole. Anyone who doesn’t believe the eyes are the window to the soul hasn’t really looked at another person.

When we last photographed Nicole, she was the same age James is now. Our little girl is all grown up….and absolutely stunning…inside as much as so obviously out!

Greg & Thahn enjoying a little alone time while we were focused on the kids. And they thought we weren’t paying attention…HA!

Heading a little closer to the water for some more fun…way to help out Maddie!

Will was a bit tired & hungry so Johnny distracted him with some fun, which he loved. Although it was getting past his bedtime and I’m not sure Will knew whether to laugh or cry. Precious!

I can’t remember whose idea it was to jump, but I LOVE it!

Maddie was totally getting into it, and enjoying watching how high everyone could get. Love this perspective of her.

Momma’s love….there is nothing that compares.

Siblings….built in besties.

Run little boos, run! Can we talk about Maddie’s face for a second????

Maddie so enjoyed the running, she decided to strip down for less wind resistance and off she went…..she literally kept running….all the way to the end of the beach.

Which caused this reaction from her family…..

An exhausted little bird gets a helping hand from her adoring big brother. And, with the sun set, we call it a night.

Nora & Johnny, thank you soooo much for including us in your Cape Cod vacation, for sharing your crazy awesome family with us and for reminding us why we love what we do. There are many long hours spent in front of the computer, editing, retouching, blogging, doing the books, emails, paper work, etc. etc. ….stuff that sometimes makes us wonder why we wanted to start our own business. But, it is these moments, with wonderful, open, kind, fun, funny, warm, fabulous families like yours that make all of the hard work worth it!

We hope you all enjoyed yourselves as much as we did and that we not only captured for you some wonderful moments in this fleeting life, but, perhaps, we also helped create some lasting memories for you & your family. We love you guys and can’t wait to see you all again!!! It’s still surprising to me that it’s been 5 years, for as soon as we walked in the door, it felt like we were walking in to see old friends! Thank you for that! Thank you too for letting me feed Will when I arrived….not that you really had a choice. :)   What can I say, I love me some good baby time.  Thank you Garry for opening up and sharing your gorgeous photos with me. I LOVED seeing them and told Andy all about it on the drive home. We totally want a head up for your next show!

Till the next time, big love & hugs to you all!

Christine & Andy xoxo

Andy : My favorite blog post to date. I love it. I was smiling all the way through.

I’ve said it before, but we really are so lucky to have such amazingly supportive couples and families who continually remind us why we love what we do. And, Kaitlin & Adam are no exception. We first photographed them during their engagement session in 2006, the summer before they would say, “I do!” That session took place at Dowses Beach, and we thought it was the perfect place to photograph them again, this time with their crazy sweet little boys, Miles & Bennett.

Although we hadn’t seen Kaitlin & Adam in several years, we had kept in touch via email and facebook and last year we got to photograph Adam’s brother, Matt, and his wife, Katherine, and their sweet new baby girl. Click HERE for a look.

It’s so flattering and humbling when our wedding couples and their families come back to us to document the next happy milestones in their lives. It really is THE best endorsement that lets us know we’re doing something right.

So, without further ado…here’s a look at our time together again with Kaitlin & Adam and their delicious little monkey men.

Before they came to meet us, Kaitlin & Adam took their kids on a Hyannis Pirate Tour, which was a HUGE hit, particularly with Miles, who wanted to carry his sword for the entire session. Shiver me timbers! I spy a photographer in yonder bushes.

Searching for shells and sand-stepping with mommy…

Loooove the expressions on Kaitlin & Adam’s gorgeous faces as they watch Miles make their way to them. Such pride & love. {swoon}

Adam & Bennett wave to a passing boat. I mean, come on with the cuteness overload!

A little pirate dual with Daddy…..all kinds of awesome!

Playing with mommy….oh, the joy!

Fearless Bennett checks out a crab….seemed appropriate considering his crazy cute crab jumper.

Our happy little gang of pirates…sans swords.

I was able to get a little alone time with Miles (which was so fun…such a sweet little guy), but all that pirate fun and running around on the beach has left our little guy tuckered out. Nothing like a hug from mom to recharge the batteries.

A little alone with with sweet Bennett and some peek-a-boo on the fishing pier.

Those eyelashes….just too much!

One last family portrait before we say goodnight.

Our sweet little pirate is completely tuckered out….

So, we end our time together where it all began for our relationship with Kaitlin & Adam…..7  years and still going strong! Love these two lovebirds!

Kaitlin & Adam, thank you so very much for sharing your sweet boys with us and for allowing us to document the four of you together, enjoying each other and Dowses Beach. It feels like just yesterday when we were there, watching you commit your hearts & lives to each other, and getting to see those hearts, walking around in the form of your sweet boys was so much fun, and such a pleasure. We adore you guys and hope to get to spend more time together again soon. Until then, we hope you enjoy these photos (and the others soon to follow) as much as we enjoyed our afternoon with all of you! With big love & hugs, Christine & Andy xoxo

Despite their size difference, Kate & Hugh are one of those couples that when you see them together, it’s hard to deny that they just FIT together…..and I mean, fit perfectly! They share the same sense of fun, abundant love for one another, and a sincere passion for living life to its fullest.

Their wedding, at Kate’s family’s summer home in Woods Hole, was a true reflection of those things they hold most dear. It was also quite a party! With 400 guests, a 28-person bridal party and dancing that seemed like it might never stop…it was a day filled with love & happy celebration! It was so wonderful to watch Kate’s parents, Nancy & Craig, beam with pride over their baby girl and the union they so obviously supported, all while throwing a party of Great Gatsby-like proportions. It truly was an amazing day, and, Andy & I were honored to have been there to document all of that joyful exaltation!

Here’s a peek at their F A B U L O U S wedding:

Kate’s stunning Monique Lhullier wedding gown and make up by the talented Katrina Hess.

Simply gorgeous! And, that happy expression was the one she was wearing all day long!

Sexy hot pink Christian Dior shoes and some seriously sexy bling to match! Looove!

Kate’s super sweet momma, Nancy, was beaming (and getting a little welled up) with pride and love for her sweet girl, as she sees her dressed and ready to marry her best friend.

The excitement builds….

Kate’s besties react to seeing their gorgeous friend…

Meanwhile, down the road a bit, Hugh gets dressed and ready with his favorite guys. Part of his wedding wear included these cufflinks that belonged to his grandfather and namesake, former Governor of New York Hugh Carey.

Looking good in his custom-designed Vineyard Vine tie, featuring flags with his & Kate’s initials.

Thumbs up to the cool ties….

Having some fun with his mates…

Hugh arrives in style for the ceremony, then takes a moment for a quick photo with his guys, including his best man and little brother, Donnie.

Kate & her proud papa, Craig, ready to enter the church….love these emotional expressions. Weddings are so freaking awesome!

I love this photo and the appropriate symbolism of the past, the present and the future depicted in the reflections seen in the church doors.

Giving away his baby girl….LOOOVE! Seriously, be still my daddy-lovin’ heart!

And embracing his new son……more love!!!

The love & laughter, oh how it did flow….

Hugh & Kate’s flower girls were crazy cute and really getting into the ceremony….

As a surprise to their guests, Hugh & Kate delivered the communion during their wedding mass. So lovely.

The new Mr. & Mrs.! Yaaahoooo! (if only people would put down their cell phones and bask in the glory of the moment!

Hugh is a little too tall for the car they made their get-away in. Watching him try to squish in was precious….almost as much as Kate’s face as she watched in delight.

The happy couple….

We went to the house Hugh’s dad had rented to do some photos, but first, a little snack for our newly married couple….I really LOVE candid moments like these. Totally my faves.

A vision…..

The old house has such character…and Kate’s stunning dress suited it perfectly.

Heading down to the gardens for photos….

Jumping for joy….

Hugh’s guys and his girl…..so fun!

Our sweet couple….

Love and a pink, heart-shaped bush….it was meant to be! Seriously…a pink, heart shaped bush! It’s like it was made for this moment!

Hot pink and ready to party….

Hugh & Kate and their bridal party sailed over to the reception, captained by Kate’s dad….does this look like an ad for Ralph Lauren or what??

As they approached the party, Hugh & Kate released some balloons…..letting their love rise to the heavens. Ahhhhh….

Meanwhile, a staff of several dozen from The Catered Affair prepared for dinner, canopied beneath a gorgeous Sperry Tent, with flowers by the incomparable Winston Flowers.

Love this super sweet basket-weave cake by Icing on the Cake.

One of Hugh & Kate’s signature drinks…..looks as good as their guests. Hello sexies!

Cocktail hour candid moments…my faves.

Hugh’s beautiful momma, Pam, digs in to the raw bar.

As Hugh & Kate make their arrival to the reception, greeted by lots of happy waves.

Trying to corral 400 people was no easy feat…but we did it. Wooo hooo!

Yay for love…and for Hugh & Kate!

This is what I strive for…..love like this, after so many years. Truly, is there anything more beautiful?

An entrance for the ages…..you go gurls!

Kate & Hugh’s dance had all of the fun, flair and love you’d expect from these two. And, their guests ate it up!

The final twirl….delightful!

Kate & Hugh’s party kicked off straight away, with our happy couple joining The Sultans of Swing for a bar or two of song! So awesome!

The sun sets as dinner is served….so Great Gatsby!

I had to grab my tripod when I saw this moment, as one of the flower girls, dances on her own during dinner. Like a fairytale come to life!

And, a little while later the party kicked into high gear with some Vineyard Vines inspired limbo. Kate & Hugh provided a ton of ridiculously fun hats for their guests to play with…LOVE!! Check out Cheesburger head following up his wife for some limbo action. AMAZEBALLS!

“Hey sharky, I wanna eat you up”….so playful & fun! Thanks guys!

Fun! Fun! Fun!

The night ended as high as one can, with Hugh & Kate taking center stage and leading one of the most amazing renditions of Journey’s Don’t Stop Believing. I love this view of them in embrace, as their friends & family cheer them on! Just wonderful!

Kate & Hugh…what can we say?! Your wedding was just so incredible, with memories made that will surely last a lifetime! Thank you so much (and thank you Nancy & Craig) for inviting us in and allowing us to be a part of all of that wonderful love & celebration! We had so much fun and hope these photos serve as happy reminders of all of the fun you so obviously had for many happy years to come! More to come soon!! Special thanks too to Jen from Pink Polka Dot Events for being amazing and also to Kat Hanafin for helping us capture some of the fabulous details and happy exchanges during cocktail hour. With lots of love & big hugs, Christine & Andy xoxo

Please leave a comment, we'd love to hear from you!

Standing in the elevator of her condominium building, Christine couldn’t help but notice when the handsome young man dressed in tennis whites and carrying a racket stepped in. She was intrigued when Stephen started talking with her and asked if she wanted to join him for a game sometime. He left his number, but Christine was focused on her work and wasn’t interested in dating….or so she thought.

But, the love Gods weren’t having it. About six weeks later, while walking down the street, the two bumped into each other again. Christine was heading home from a long day of work and Stephen was on his way out. They stopped to say hello, and this time, Christine agreed to go for a drink with her handsome neighbor. And so began their love story…

This summer, Christine & Stephen will embark on the next happy chapter as they say, “I do!” at the beautiful ocean side Wequassett Resort in Harwich. We’re keeping our fingers crossed that the band plays the Aerosmith classic, Love in an Elevator, as a nod to their fateful meeting!

We got together with these two cuties a couple of weeks ago for their Bello love session. It was also the first time we all met and I was particularly excited to finally put a face to the kind, sweet, funny woman I had been e-mailing/chatting with for months. As expected, Christine & Stephen were as lovely as we had imagined.

We met at Christine’s parents’ home in Falmouth and as a little treat, we got to meet them too. It is no surprise Christine is as lovely as she is! Dick and Linda are just delightful and made us feel incredibly welcome in their beautiful home. We all sat outside, sipping drinks, and snacking on cheese and crackers as we got acquainted, while looking at family photos and talking wedding plans. We have no doubt the wedding day is going to be a wonderful, joyful celebration of love…..and we can’t wait to be a part of that!

For now, here’s a sneak peek at our time with the lovely Christine & Stephen…

We started on the front stoop of her parent’s home, because we just love how front stoops speak of home, family and a welcome respite from the stresses of life. I mean, when does life get more simple than when you’re sitting on your stoop, snuggling and laughing with the one you love?

Next, we headed out to the backyard (where poor Dick quickly began pruning like a madman for us…..such an awesome dad!) for some more snuggling and laughing…love these two!!!

After getting warmed up to the idea of being photographed, we headed to our next location by the water. These two, like soooo many of our couples, were pretty nervous about being photographed. They claimed to not be able to take a decent photo….um, yeah, whatever….heard that before. Big, silly fibbers! Christine, like another Christine my husband knows, was particularly worried about how she photographed. We all thought she was seeing things we just didn’t see, but being my own worst critic in front of the camera, I could absolutely empathize and really went the extra mile to try and capture just how lovely, beautiful, kind, sweet and caring this wonderful woman is. I will be holding my breath to hear what she thinks of our efforts….

I just loooooove these boats! Love the colors and the way you really have to get close to be in one. It didn’t hurt having such a gorgeous couple in them to photograph either!!!

Heaven looks like this….

Our next stop took us to our favorite lighthouse, where our happy couple really found their stride in front of our cameras. The e-session really is as much about all of us getting to know and feel comfortable with one another….building trust and confidence….as it is about getting pretty pictures. And, we absolutely love the process. It is so fun for us and we hope for our couples too!

Does it get more classically Cape Cod than this? I think not!

These two did a lot of smooching, and I have to say, being around that kind of affection and passion is so nice for us! Andy & I have been together for (I can hardly believe it) nearly 19 years and those intense feelings of infatuation that drew us to one another back on the beaches of Marbella, Spain, are still there. But, time has a way of changing things. We have a history now. We have been together through hard times and glory days. We know each other better than we know ourselves. We have lifted each other up and sometimes, in a moment of weakness, we have let each other down. The history we share has a way of covering the early passion and wild abandon with layers of stronger, deeper feelings of love, commitment, trust & familiarity. One is not better than the other. Rather, they are all part of the joy that is life! It’s such a treat for us to get to regularly see new love, in all its sweet, unbridled glory….when the  kisses are still new and the electricity nearly visible. Sometimes, after a particularly good session with our couples, we drive home, holding hands a little tighter. The kisses taste a little sweeter and those old feelings bubble closer to the surface, making us appreciate the journey that has led us to today. Christine & Stephen did that for us and we hope these photos of their kisses and tender touches may one day remind them of this time in their lives and do for them what they did for us….

Smiles and almost kisses = my favorite things to photograph.

“In your eyes I see a world of possibility, a love as deep as the deepest ocean, and a reflection of me that is one I strive to live up to.” THIS is love!

Oh Christine….if you could see you as we do. You are absolutely stunning! In every way!  And, Stephen, you’re pretty fabulous (and dashingly handsome) as well!

Down to the waters edge, getting to close to the waves, and loving every minute of it…

Side by side…..forever!

By this time in the session, I think it’s safe to say we were all realllllly enjoying ourselves. And, here….with the setting sun casting its warm glow, sparks flew….

and, hearts filled….

And joy, it did flow like a rising tide.

I’ve said it a million times, and for these two it rings as true as ever…..There is NO better place than in the arms of the one you love. Ahhhhhhh!

Hubba. Hubba. Hubba!!!!

Christine & Stephen…..THANK YOU! Thank you for opening your hearts to us. Thank you for trusting us, and letting down your guard….when we know it was not easy for you. Thank you for inviting us to share in such a special time in your lives, without even having met us yet. Thank you for welcoming us into your home with open arms and making us feel like old friends! We hope these photos show you what we see in you…..warm ,wonderful, lovely, kind, caring, SEXY, beautiful people who have a deep affection for one another and who light up everything around them. We adore you and are so excited to get to share in the love & celebration that will be all around you in just a couple of months! Until then, we hope these photos serve as happy reminders of this time in your lives and our time together. With big love & hugs, Christine & Andy xoxoxo

PS…We’d like to send a special shout out of love to Dick & Linda for just being so totally awesome! Can’t wait to give you both big hugs again in September! xo

Julia Camarco : Christine you look beautiful! These photos are so amazing...so much love!!!

You ever meet a couple and instantly think, “These guys are perfect for each other; they make being in a relationship look easy!” Well that’s exactly how I felt last week, after Andy & I spent the day with Kelly & Bryan for our Bello love session (aka engagement session or, as another of our brides this year, Christine, so cutely put it….snuggle session.)

We first met Kelly & Bryan last year at the Martha’s Vineyard wedding of Cara & Brendan. Kelly is Cara’s cousin and sweet definitely runs in the genes in this wonderful family. Just love them! Click HERE for a peek at Cara’s amazing wedding and Kel’s appearance as bridesmaid extraordinaire. So fun!

Kel & Bryan first met about 7 years ago. Kel was “sick as a dog, wearing a hoodie, jeans and no-make up,” but her friends dragged her out to a local dive bar to see a friend’s band. She wasn’t exactly primed for finding love, but even in her sickly state, she made a lasting impression on Bryan, who had already been in the bar for a while getting his fun on. Even with a healthy buzz going, Bryan immediately noticed Kelly. Sadly, she was just arriving as he was leaving.

As fate would have it, the two bumped into each other again the following weekend at the same local pub. Being a bit more clear headed, Bryan decided to make his move.

“It was love at first…and apparently second…sight,” Bryan told us.

Kelly, however, was doing her best to avoid eye contact with the slightly sauced “weird guy” from the previous weekend. Bryan was determined. He mustered the nerve to go over and flex his best pick up line, “Hey, haven’t I seen you somewhere before?” He knew exactly where he had seen her, and so did Kelly. But, his line worked. The two chatted, and after a while, Kelly found Bryan and his persistence charming.

“My love for Bryan grew over time and continues to grow each and every day,” Kelly told us. “He’s always in a good mood, positive and let’s me be me, no matter what. He makes me feel incredibly special and that I’m the only one for him.”

Kelly & Bryan will say, “I do!” this summer, surrounded by family & friends at the Black Rock Country Club in Hingham. And, we can’t wait to be there with them, documenting all of the love & joyful celebration we just know will surround them!

When we asked them what they would like for us to know about them that they thought would help us truly capture them and their relationship in photographs they said, “We plan to grow old together and want to make the journey as fun as we can.”

After spending the day with them last week, we have no doubt that these two are in for a lifetime of fun. And, we’re pretty sure that’s exactly how their guests will describe their wedding as they begin this new chapter of their journey together. How lucky are we to get to be a part of that?!!

Here’s  a look at our time together last week, as we visited some of our favorite spots in Sandwich.

Happy, fun, beautiful LOVE…No seven year itch happening here….quite the opposite!

I truly believe that a couple who laughs together stays together. Life is too short and too full of serious stuff to not make time for fun!

And, these two have it down….with a generous dose of sweet sincerity and deep affection thrown in for good measure!

Bryan looks like the luckiest guy in the world. Just love his expression in this next one…”Well chuffed” is how Andy would describe it!

Smiles & kisses and gentle touches….just delightful!

Loving glances + silly giggles + a gorgeous couple by a beautiful pond = heaven.


Classic Cape Cod and classic Kel & Bry…just having a good time!


Happy! Happy! Happy!

These next two are some of my faves from the day. I just LOOOOVE the way Bryan is so tenderly holding Kel’s face and the way they’re looking at each other is just delightful….so full of playful affection. So totally them! And, the one on the right says of Kelly, “This is my happy place!”

Another fave….just LOVE the look on Kelly’s gorgeous, smitten face! Priceless!

A little Americana lovin’….

On Golden Pond….

Kelly is so much fun to photograph. She’s freaking gorgeous, and so happy and excited to be photographed with her sweet, attentive man. We could have kept taking photos of these two all night!

Down to the beach for a little change of scenery….Yes, Bryan, we see the bum grab….a true sign that a couple has been together for years. Andy sometimes does that to me without realizing it. I like to think it speaks of comfort and security.

Sassy. Sassy! Meeeeoooow!

Isn’t she lovely?!!

More giggles….my favorite thing to see with our couples!

The path to our future….yaaaaay!!

More boardwalk cuteness! Love Bryan’s face on the left. Shy & smitten all at once!

Helllloooooooo Miss Thang! So sexy!

And, finally, into Sandwich center for a little downtown feel. Wish the ice cream shop had been opened. I had my heart set on a cone.

Kel & Bryan, you two are wonderful….as individuals and as a couple. Thank you for coming down to spend the afternoon (and evening) with us. We could have kept talking all night had the waitress not been giving us the stink eye as she swept around us. We’ll have to do it again soon! For now, we hope you enjoy these photos and that they serve as happy reminders of this exciting time in your lives. We cannot wait to get you back in front of our cameras for your “I dos!” We just know you’re both going to be overflowing with happiness and we’re excited to capture that for you! With big love & hugs, Christine & Andy xoxo
