M.V. Composing Portraits » Blog

Jordan & Angela certainly know how to entertain in true fashion, they had a reception celebration of their wedding at the WAM, Worcester Art Museum. (They were married in Florida the week previous) Everything was catered to the hilt and perfectly executed, Angela is quite the visionary as you can see! I loved being able to capture this exciting event for Jordan & Angela, they were so carefree and caring to eachother.  They also knew how to get down on the dance floor which was most entertaining due to the entertainment hired. A one-man-show like I had never witnessed, I’ll keep you posted on his information as I don’t currently have it. It was quite the night and for an artist like me, it was the PERFECT way to kick off my last fall wedding! Enjoy the photographs you two, lots of awesome memories for you!!! Also, slideshow song was by request..I had never heard the song but I do like it, it’s One Direction:)

This is Cristina & Paul, they are a vibrant and oh so gorgeous couple who were married on June 15th, 2013. I couldn’t be more ecstatic about the memories we were able to capture for them! The church in Danbury, St. Josephs, was the same church that Cristina’s parents were married in. The reception was a stunning place to photograph, I was in love with the naturally lit staircase with stunning chandelier adorning the ceiling. Also, some of my favorite images are during the dance when they brought out the specially made Paul and Cristina sunglasses and light sticks…so much fun!!! ENJOY the photographs you two!!!
