Hello and welcome to my blog!
I'm Amy Emily and I'm a New England + Destination Wedding Photographer based in Boston, MA. I'm satisfied in the moments where I've kicked off my heels, grabbed a
cup of coffee, and laughed 'till my sides hurt.
I adore telling the charming and ever-so amazing stories of life. I hope I can be a part
of yours. Look around, share in the joy of others, and remember your story is beautiful.
A few months ago, as I was photographing Casey and Mike’s beautiful wedding in PA, I was in heaven. I adore their families so much so I nearly fell over with excitement when Sheri (Casey’s sister and bridesmaid) turned to me and said you might have another wedding in our family to photograph as she showed me her STUNNING engagement ring! Since then, I have had the pure joy in getting to know PJ and Sheri even more. We had the best time during their engagement session and now I can not wait till their wedding day to watch all their close family and friends witness their vows to each other!
I asked Sheri how they got engaged she shared the most lovely story. PJ & Zachary (their son) set up the proposal together. Zachary really loves astronomy and one night he wanted to go outside and use his telescope. PJ went outside with him to set it up, and then Zachary ran in to get Sheri saying “come on mom! Quick! You can see the Apollo landing site!” So Sheri went outside and started looking through the telescope. She could not see what they were talking about, so she was getting slightly annoyed. After a few minutes, PJ kept saying, “Babe can’t you see that big rock right there? It’s right there!” As she looked up, he was holding the ring!!! She fell to the ground because she could not believe it! He got down on his knee and asked her to marry him. Did your heart just melt a little…cause mine did! LOVE THEM!

Goodbyes are terrible! There is no real way around them either which annoys me. I have learned a lot since moving to Boston but the hardest lesson I have learned while here is how to say goodbye. This beautiful city is so transient that you can count on at least 1/3 of your friend group changing over every year. This has been gut wrenching and at times, extremely discouraging. Yet with each change brings someone new. Some kind and beautiful soul, that I am baffled I did not know before.
It is my pure joy to introduce you to Ariel. Ariel and I worked together for a little bit this year. Every morning (starting at 5:45am) we would carpool to work and then spend the day talking and laughing. Planning events and crafting gifts for celebrations. She knew all along that she would be leaving come June but yet some how it feels like it sneaked up on me and possibly her. She’s all packed up now and settled into her new home in Israel. I am so proud of her for pursuing her dreams of becoming a rabbi.
With that being said, here are some of portraits of her along the Boston esplanade.
I am literally grinning from ear to ear as I write this blog post! Last year, after I photographed Matt and Melanie’s wedding, I went home and I was really sad. I felt like I had just made some dear friends and I didn’t know the next time I would have the privilege of spending time with them, their friends, and their family! Then to my complete surprise and JOY… Melanie’s brother, Mike proposed to his longtime girl friend, Casey last February. Casey reached out to me and I nearly freaked out with excitement. Not only are these two abosulety the most kind and sweet individuals, they actually met in middle school. They even dated on and off again since then! When they told me their engagement story, I swear my heart melted.
Mike had bought Casey a lovely jewelry mirror for Christmas and took his time hanging it. One day, in February, Mike went to put it together. When Casey came down to see it, their then 3 month son was sitting next to it. When Casey opened it, there she saw her beautiful engagement ring – smack dab in the middle. Casey was in complete shock! I am so glad Mike could completely surprise her! As you can tell from Jordan’s face below – we are ALL pretty stoked about these two getting married!
We started the session at NayAug and then stopped by their middle school where they met. I wish I could say that is the most impressive thing about these two – but there’s so much more. From being amazing parents to just genuinely funny humans, they have these huge hearts full of love and I feel so lucky to have them as clients and friends.
Mike and Casey, I can not wait till your wedding! Thanks for wandering around Scranton with me. XOXO.
