Eva & Ryan - Willowdale Estate - Topsfield, MA https://www.joshlondonphotography.com/blog/2017/3/eva-ryan---willowdale-estate-topsfield Eva & Ryan ... What can I say about this wedding.. I wish you were there to see it!!

From the father of the bride and the groom catching fish behind the venue, the groom finding a geocache (google it if you're not familiar), to ending the night with a dragonfly gracefully perched upon the brides hand.. Chills and goosebumps for everybody. 

 

Maybe you're familiar with the meaning of dragonflies, maybe you're not, but I want you to look at the photos first, at the end I will link to an article that Eva wrote that will help you to understand why this wedding was so incredible to be a part of... I can guarantee goosebumps if you read the whole thing.

 

If Eva & Ryan look familiar, its because you've seen them before! Check out their engagement shoot from a while back .. 

 

Enjoy! :)

Alyssa & Billy https://www.joshlondonphotography.com/blog/2016/6/alyssa-billy Not a day goes by,
that I don't wish you know how much I love you.
Not a day goes by,
that I don't wish better for you.
My love is like a river, it is like a fountain; it is longing and flowing for you.
No matter what hard times we've been through,
My love has kept on growing for you.
I hope you can see,
that it is you I need.
I know we are bound for a higher life,
where we won't bear anymore strife.
Yet, in the still of this life;
not a day goes by,
that I'm not praying for you,
and still loving you.

The Birth of a Family. https://www.joshlondonphotography.com/blog/2016/2/the-birth-of-a-family The greatest career in the world is that of a photographer. One of the main reasons for that is the opportunity it gives you to meet new people and experience new things. People put their trust in photographers, we are allowed into peoples lives in such an intimate private way. Over the last few years I have had the opportunity to do just that with Devin & Nicollette.  

 

On my Instagram ( @jlophoto ) a few months ago I posted some photos from Devin and Nicollette's wedding  alluding to some big news going on in their lives...

 

I was lucky enough to photograph their wedding, a 3 day extravaganza with lawn games, camp fires, a ceremony in the woods, a reception in a barn, and capped off with a fantastic breakfast the following morning. Having stayed in a cabin with the groom and all his groomsmen for the weekend really showed me just how much I was trusted and let into the lives of these newlyweds. 

 


 

Not too long after the wedding Devin reached out and asked me about getting some  Maternity photos done. "I know what that means!" I said as I congratulated him on this big big news! Devin and Nicollette would be adding a member to their family 9 months from then! 

 

Shortly thereafter we met at Brooksby Farm in Peabody, Ma to stroll around and get some pregnancy photos... 

 

 


This is when things get interesting ... I assumed that the next time I would see Dev and Nic after that maternity shoot would be after the birth when they came in to the studio for newborn photos.. But I was wrong, because Devin reached out again and asked me if I would be interested in shooting something a little out of the norm.. "of course Im interested" I said before I even knew what he was talking about (..because thats just how I roll) He then told me that they wanted me to be in the hospital with them on the day of their child's birth. They wanted me to document the birth of their daughter...This is a huge moment for me not only in my career but my life also. What an honor it is to even have been asked to share such a huge moment in a family's life. I said yes without hesitation. Before I knew it I was at the hospital at 10 a.m ready to go! 

Sadie Jo was born 14 hours later... 

 


 

It was only right that we followed up with Sadie Jo's newborn photo shoot..

 

During this shoot Nicollette had a pretty cool idea for a photo with Sadie and her cousins.. so we tried it out.

 

 

A beautiful family has grown right in front of my eyes.

 

 


 

To cap this blog off... Here are some photos from Sadie's 3 month shoot. She's all grown up now! 

 

 

I like to think that I'm the luckiest person in the world.. I've met and become friends with so many great people who have allowed me into their life during the most precious times of their lives.

They had a snowball fight for an engagement shoot?

.. see what Im talking about HERE

 

Well, I photographed their wedding this past August and to say that it was the greatest wedding of all time may be an understatement... The dance floor was full before salad was served... and it did not stop all night! 

 

O yea, almost forgot to mention, John and Lauren are being featured on the cover the March issue of New England Bride Magazine! 

 

 

 

Take a look and try to get a feel for why this wedding was so incredible...

Eva & Ryan - Engagement session at Saugus Iron Works https://www.joshlondonphotography.com/blog/2016/1/eva-ryan---engagement-session-at-saugus-iron-works  

Feelings Of Love

It's an unexplained feeling that we all hope to find
That wonderful feeling that seems to boggle the mind
It makes your eyes hazy
It can make you carefree and lazy
It can make you or break you
It can make you happy or blue
Giddy, like a child at play
Looking for that feeling every single day
Love is an unexplained feeling
Something that leaves ones heart reeling
A special kiss, hug or smile
A kind word that goes the extra mile
A beautiful voice on the end of the line
It's wonderful to know love so divine
Soaring up and down on the wings of a dove
That's the unexplained feeling of love.

"I loved you first: but afterwards your love"

BY CHRISTINA ROSSETTI

Poca favilla gran fiamma seconda. – Dante 
Ogni altra cosa, ogni pensier va fore, 
E sol ivi con voi rimansi amore. 
– Petrarca 

I loved you first: but afterwards your love
    Outsoaring mine, sang such a loftier song
As drowned the friendly cooings of my dove.
    Which owes the other most? my love was long,
    And yours one moment seemed to wax more strong;
I loved and guessed at you, you construed me
And loved me for what might or might not be –
    Nay, weights and measures do us both a wrong.
For verily love knows not ‘mine’ or ‘thine;’
    With separate ‘I’ and ‘thou’ free love has done,
         For one is both and both are one in love:
Rich love knows nought of ‘thine that is not mine;’
         Both have the strength and both the length thereof,
Both of us, of the love which makes us one.

Yahaira & Derrick Chery https://www.joshlondonphotography.com/blog/2016/1/yahaira-derrick-chery To my dear and loving husband

A Poem By Anne Bradstreet.

 

 

If ever two were one, then surely we. 
If ever man were loved by wife, then thee. 
If ever wife was happy in a man, 
Compare with me, ye women, if you can. 
I prize thy love more than whole Mines of gold 
Or all the riches that the East doth hold. 
My love is such that Rivers cannot quench, 
Nor ought but love from thee give recompense. 
Thy love is such I can no way repay.
The heavens reward thee manifold, I pray. 
Then while we live, in love let's so persevere
That when we live no more, we may live ever.

Shooting a family member or a friends wedding may seem crazy to some wedding photographers out there, but honestly, I love it! Im able to get shots that I wouldn't be able to in an ordinary scenario. You may see photos of me sprinkled in here and there (shot by Video Guy Extraordinaire Marco Corrado), but most of the shots (as it should be) are of the beautiful newlyweds! This wedding took place on the Odyssey in Boston Harbor...and without further adieu... 

 

 

To kick things off... Here is a photo from their engagement shoot we did last year at Minuteman National Park.

Snapshots of San Juan https://www.joshlondonphotography.com/blog/2015/5/snapshots-of-san-juan I was in Puerto Rico for a very short time, but that was all the time I needed to realize that PR is one of the best places i've visited yet. Its quiet, beautiful, and lively all at the same time. Old San Juan is quite the original spot, SO MANY KITES!! There is so much history packed into this tiny little place, but very modern at the same time. Maybe it was the fact that PR is part of the US that I felt so at home, or maybe its that no matter where you are from, PR would feel like home to you too.
