Les Zygomates Wedding: Courtney + Darren First Look and Portraits

Oct 6, 2010 | Weddings

I usually like to hold the first look in a quiet outdoor spot with amazing light and lots of greenery … but when you’re bang in the middle of Boston’s theater district, sometimes it’s better to work with what you’ve got – in this case Darren’s swanky 14th floor corner suite at the W Hotel.  The light was pretty, and the decor matched this smart couple’s elegant wedding …

I’m not sure what I said to elicit that response from Courtney, but it must have been something silly.  🙂  After a couple of portraits in the hotel room, we headed over to the Boston Public Garden for the bridal party and family portraits.  I have to give a shout-out here to the fabulous Linda Brandolini with Black Tie Limousine who drove us around in style.  Thanks Linda!

There may have been a request along the lines of “give me your best crazy bitches!”  Sometimes I have a little too much fun in this job …

The flowers were ahhhh-mazing.  If you haven’t already, pop over and check out JP florists New Leaf Flores.  Their creations are so colorful and unusual – elegant and funky all at the same time.  Love them!

Also, I just love that photo of Courtney.  She’s a doll.  With freckles!  We still had a little time to play, so after the family formals we took a little wander around the (crazy busy) Public Gardens for some couples portraits.

The light was so gorgeous – and I love the relaxed photos right at the end of our session, just outside the gates:

Next up: lots of very fun images from the ceremony and reception at Les Zygomates in the Leather District.  Stay tuned!
