2015 Year End Wrap Up! by Abby Lorenz

And Just like that, it's 2016! It's hard to believe that Blair and Pat's wedding, my first of 2015, was alllll the way back in May!! Part of me feels like that was just last month, but another part feels like it was forever ago. What's up with that? 

2015 was a good year. It just was! So many great weddings, with fantastic couples, their families and friends, and so many great locations. This year I had the privilege of visiting some awesome new locations, including a fabulous private Estate in Westport, Alerin Barn in Vermont, Tower Hill Botanical Garden (twice in a row! What?), and got to revisit some a couple of places I love to shoot at, like Hampshire House, State Room and of course Artists for Humanity. 

Pulling together this year end wrap up post was way harder than I imagined it would be! I want to show everrryyythingggg. So, I managed to pare it down a bit--but get comfy cause this is def a pretty long one :) 

To everyone from 2015, including my friends and family who support me through this crazy business, my fellow photographer colleagues who are my best friends and most hilarious and fun team of people I could ask to know, and of course all my amazing clients who trusted me with their most important day. Let's also not forget all the amazing vendors and venue teams I worked with this year, who pull this all off to create these amazing experiences for our awesome clients! 

Friends, Family, Colleagues, Vendors, Venues and my beloved clients: this one is for you: 

 

Joanna and Nick at the Arnold Arboretum by Abby Lorenz

How have I lived in Boston for 10 years and never been to the Arboretum?!!? I'm so glad Joanna and Nick asked me to meet them there for their engagement session a few weeks ago. PERFECT Fall New England Day with these two high school sweethearts. Oh and their dog Porter. Thanks for a beautiful evening and a great shoot, you guys!

Also I must say--my 2016 brides are CRUSHIN IT with the gorgeous hair!

And finally: Andrew and Joe. At home in the South End. by Abby Lorenz

What a year. This season started out on a beautiful Spring day in May with the trees exploding in hot pink cherry blossoms, took me to Westport, the Cape, New Hampshire, Western Mass, and finally came full circle, right back to the heart of Boston, on a beautiful crisp Fall day. And by heart of Boston, I mean Andrew and Joe's home in the South End. They celebrated their wedding with just their closest family members, starting with some champagne before moving things upstairs for their roof top ceremony. What a spectacular day and a spectacular couple. These two doctors are over the moon for each other. Their love for each other combined with their families all coming together to celebrate just made my heart swell. Thank you Andrew, Joe and your amazing families for a wonderful way to bring this years wedding season to a perfect end, right downtown.

Katrina and Nick: at Lynch Park in Beverly. by Abby Lorenz

Ahhhhh this was one of those perfect nights where the sun was setting at jussstttt the right time. Plenty of shade in the park, and then meandered down to the beach for those perfect 15 minutes of golden hour on the beach. Thanks Katrina and Nick for a BEAUTIFUL evening in Beverly! Can't wait for your wedding next Summer!!
