Jennifer and John knew exactly what they wanted their Boston State Room wedding to feel like: quite simply, Boston. They have both long been in love with urban architecture and design (in fact, John is a professor of architecture), so capturing the city’s unique aesthetic was a must for them. No surprise then, that they chose the Liberty Hotel for their preparatory wedding events and Boston’s State Room for their wedding reception. When we sat down to meet over coffee for the first time, Jenn and John told me they wanted a blend of modern, artistic imagery with a nod to tradition. At that moment, I knew we were a great fit.
Most weddings are a compromise of sorts – the bride and groom’s current style and vision, coupled with elements that represent their family values. It’s in this compromise that we blend both the bride and groom’s family history with who they are becoming together. Creating new traditions built on the foundation of their past is a really beautiful transition to watch as a photographer who spends years following couples from wedding, to baby, and beyond. Understanding where my clients come from, and where their dreams lie for the future, is a story I never get tired of telling.
Though I have shot at Boston’s State Room many times, I love the fresh angles and textures we produced at Jenn and John’s wedding, making use of the reflective materials and unique textual elements of the space. Enjoy our unique take on two of Boston’s architectural standouts – 60 State Street and The Liberty Hotel.
