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.
I’ve been pretty quiet on this blog but not today. Today, I am so excited to share with you images from my first wedding in southern France. Natalie and Jacky’s civil ceremony was on the blog yesterday but today it’s all about their beautiful, southern France wedding in Grignan.
When I asked Natalie if they had a theme for their wedding she said, it’s “Meet Me at the Tree.” She then explained how she started thinking about how a tree has had an important place in human history, from the beginning of time, and will be till the end. Therefore, even though you some of you couldn’t join us in person, I invite you now to meet us by the tree and follow along these images as Jacky and Natalie say their vows on by far the windiest wedding I have ever experienced.
These beautiful cards which Natalie and Jacky used during their First Look are from Of Note Stationers. (I can’t RAVE enough about these cards! Simple, classic, & elegant!)

Angela and Erik got married at Shining Tides in Mattapoisett with the most beautiful first look, sandy beaches and stunning sunset. The waterfront view is absolutely breathtaking and was the perfect backdrop for their ceremony. But we should probably back up and start with the first time I met Angela and Erik, at their wedding consultation. I knew immediately we were going to quickly become friends. It was so refreshing to hear their story during their engagement session. Pretty much because it had me laughing from the first minute I heard it. It was one of those classic nights at the local bar, where one of Erik’s best friend’s, Panda, randomly started talking to Angela and then proceed to touch her face. Erik quickly came over to them and realized he really liked this girl. Their story is full of great humor (which was not lost during their wedding ceremony) and an wonderful community of friends and family.
It’s these weddings that move me the most. The ones that are focused on the people and the vows. Just like when that same best friend, Panda, became the wedding officiant or how almost all the bridesmaids were from Angela’s sorority…I loved knowing that they value the people in their life that do every day with them. The focus wasn’t on the details, although the details were stunning, it was focused on those those who have cried with them, laughed with them, the people who traveled to celebrate their engagement with them, the people that come over and watch an excessive amount of reruns with them or their friends that text them when they find an amazing whisky they know Erik would love to try from a local brewery. Those friends and family, surrounded them by the waterfront view and watched as Erik and Angela made a covenant to each other, to honor and cherish each other for as long as both of them shall live. In those thoughtful and personal vows, even then their friends and family joined in. I can’t help but smile as I write this knowing everyone at Shining Tides whole heartedly loved them as a couple and they in return felt the same towards those witnessing their special day.
Erik and Angela from meeting you in Brookline, to an engagement session on a rooftop in Backbay, to your wedding at Shining Tides…you both remained remarkable. Your devotion to each other is truly a beautiful gift. Thank you for letting me come and document your first day as husband and wife. I am so grateful to call you both not only amazing clients but dear friends.
You know that beautiful moment in the ceremony when a phone goes off?! Yup – that happened and guess what?! It was one of their parents’ cell phone! But don’t worry, it was just a wrong number! The intimate ceremony continued and everyone was beaming at how humorous the timing was.
I can’t even tell you how many guests starred out at the moon lit sky at some point during the reception. The moon just hung so high and bright. Everyone was in awe of it! It was truly magical!
