2015: A Year In Weddings

December 28, 2015

Seven years ago when I started photographing professionally, I decided to focus on weddings. I made the decision for selfish reasons — there’s great personal reward for photographers who capture and deliver wedding photographs. The image making involves working with people on a very personal level, and unlike work that’s hung in a gallery and sold to strangers, the delivery of photographs is often met with joyful tears and a great sense of worth and appreciation. I guess it’s easy to become bored or jaded by our professional lives, but after seven years and over 200 weddings, the joy and reward I get from my work only continues to grow.

Wedding Venues In Boston & Beyond

In 2015 we revisited old favorite venues where I had previously photographed such as the Boston Public Library, the Taj Hotel, Artists For Humanity, the MIT Chapel, the State Room, Belle Mer Newport, the Lenox Hotel, Moraine Farm, Willowdale Estate, the Pierce House, Fruitlands Museum, the Fairmont Copley Hotel, the Lyman Estate, Jones River Trading, Chatham Bars Inn, and the Four Seasons Hotel in Boston. We also photographed at venues which were new to me such as the Wianno Club, Falmouth Museums On The Green, the Barn At Gibbet Hill, the Red Inn Provincetown, the Liberty Hotel, the Hellenic Center, Hartmann’s Herb Farm, and Rosecliff Mansion in Newport.

Thank You

Thank you to the 29 couples, photography assistants and second photographers, and all of the vendors who helped create so much beauty this year. Delivering over 28,000 photos, it’s impossible to go through and pick favorites. The images below are just a few moments from 2015 that I remember well.

For some reason I was especially taken by the six groomsmen taken outdoors under a tree. Something with the persistent off-balance elements — the monotonically increasing height of the men, the slight tilt of the branch, even the left-to-right progression from awkward to confident to casual — makes the subjects almost float over the ground, like they were carefully posed and then pasted in. Totally surreal, yet you can read so much of their actual characters at the same time. Brilliant, love it!

Kuan the groom in that photo is a magician from Spain. So your reading of the image is quite appropriate!

Absolutely breathtaking images!! Wishing you another year of great success in 2016! – Brianna Dalton (family portrait photographer)

Love these beautiful photos- of course I’m partial to Gabrielle Faria-Kalkanis but the others are equally as beautiful Lisa

So beautiful Lisa! What a wonderful year. I could look at your photos all day. 🙂

Gorgeous work, Lisa! Here’s to an even more fabulous 2016 season!
