papandrea photography: Blog en-us (C) papandrea photography (papandrea photography) Sun, 17 Jan 2021 00:00:00 GMT Sun, 17 Jan 2021 00:00:00 GMT papandrea photography: Blog 101 120 Jessica and Sean ~ 9.13.14 Jessica and Sean were married at St. Leo's Church in Leominster, MA followed by a tented reception near the bride's parents house in Lancaster, MA.  Jessica was an absolutely stunning bride and was very relaxed the entire time. She teaches and had a school bus pick her and her bridesmaids up from the house to the to the church. Sean's eyes were wide with excitement the whole day and I even caught him taking a selfie of him and his new bride on the alter during the traditional Catholic wedding celebration. Once the ceremony was over, it started to rain and it rained most of the day. No one noticed though. They ate, drank and celebrated with all of their families and friends. People were on the dance floor the entire time. And Jessica told me that they danced for hours after I had left. It was a fun wedding to shoot and it would have been a great wedding to have attended as a guest. Click on the slideshow below the images and take a look and see for yourself! 

 Congratulations to you both, Jessica and Sean!

Danielle & Chris 9.6.14  

Danielle and Chris picked a perfect spot to have their wedding. They met working on horses so Bittersweet Farm was the spot to have their love story come together on their special day. The grounds were pretty and peaceful, the restaurant was beautifully decorated and the staff was great to work with.  

Danielle was by far one of the calmest, most laid back brides I have worked with so far. Congratulations once again Danielle & Chris!!! Thank you for having my capture your day for you!!!

Spring is finally here!!! Well, that was the longest, coldest winter... but we got through it and Spring is here!!! Parker turned 5 in March and I have had the pleasure of photographing him for the past 3 years. I have used this location for many shoots. Tower Hill Botanical Garden in Boylston, MA is absolutely beautiful and the daffodil hill in April and May makes for a wonderful back drop. Click on the link below and view all of the photographs from my shoot with Parker.

Colin Newborn shoots are quickly becoming one of my favorite types of portrait photography. Babies change so fast in those first weeks, months and even first year, so it is very special to be able to capture them in the earliest stages of life. I am happy to be able to provide these shots of baby Colin to his parents, aunts, uncles and grandparents. He is a handsome little man! Happy Holidays!!!

The Malin's Hope everyone enjoyed their Halloween!

Winding down Columbus Day weekend portrait sessions, I present the Malin family.  Their son Connor, is an 18-month-old cutie who was on the move! Jen and Jeff chose Upton State Park as the location for these shots and it was a great spot for the session.

The Bairos Family It is with great joy that I share this wonderful session I had with Lauren, Fernando and their sweet baby boy, Austin. I really enjoy capturing these precious memories especially first-time parents, because as a parent myself, I know how fast babies grow and how quickly that first year goes by.

Bridget & Antonio June 1, 2013. It was a hot and steamy wedding day for Bridget and Antonio, but you couldn't see them sweat. This couple was not going to let any weather get in the way of celebrating their special day - in fact - the Bride prefers the heat and humidity over anything else! The ceremony and reception were both held at her parents home which provided the perfect setting for this intimate wedding. And as the photographer, I could not have asked for better light, as you will see below:

2013 is off to a great start! Happy New Year to you all! I started this year off shooting a wonderful winter wedding which started out at the Mary Martha Chapel in Sudbury, Massachusetts and then they celebrated at the Charter Oaks Country Club in Hudson, Massachusetts. 

The bride and groom were happy and relaxed and all their family and friends enjoyed the celebration...the bridal party was a lot of fun and as you will see very photogenic! I am truly enjoying myself!
