Jan 20, 2012 | Weddings

One of my very favorite parts of the wedding day is the reception.  Cocktail hour is perfect for capturing candids of your guests having a good time … the first dance and parent dances are often filled with emotion (did you know that preparing for the first dance is the most nervous I am all day?) … and then I get to eat.  🙂  No shame here, wedding food is wonderful – and I work hard for it!  And after dinner, the party really gets started and I LOVE stepping onto the dance floor and seeing just how crazy your friends and family will be with my camera right there (I’m usually very pleasantly surprised … maybe it’s the champagne that’s served over dinner …)

My weddings this year took place in Boston, of course, and all over New England.  And two in Seattle (yeah!)  Some of my favorite venues below include Belle Mer in Newport, RI, Saltwater Farm Vineyard in CT, The Towers in Narragansett, Turner Hill in Ipswich, MA, Castle Hill Inn (another beautiful Newport, RI venue), Taj Boston, Boston Marriott Cambridge, DeCordova Sculpture Park & Museum, The Liberty Hotel, Museum of Science Boston, Four Season Boston, Omni Mount Washington Resort in the White Mountains, The Charles Hotel in Cambridge, Wentworth by the Sea Country Club, Rockport Art Association, Fruitlands Museum in Harvard, MA and a lovely backyard wedding at a private residence.  Enjoy – and let me know if you have any favorites!


  1. Very elegant work of your´s. Beautiful respect for what is happening and at right moment. Very good. Congrats.

  2. The picture of Emily and her Dad (kevin) dancing to “Who let the dogs out” is priceless. Thank you Kate.

  3. I’d like to know if you lease any images of your photos. I’d like to use one for my website to promote some wedding services I provide. (The image is 15 up from the bottom of this page–a b/w image of people sitting at a table, laughing.)

    Thanks so much. Hope to hear from you soon.
