November 2011

I’m spending the night in Miami after almost a week in St. Lucia. After having an awesome few days with Heather, Tomas and their friends and family, I had a chance to stay in Soufriere the night before national elections. It was a little crazy to say the least, but I had a blast and the rain let up enough to shoot some film so it was a win win. Either way I’m ready to be going home tomorrow. I love traveling by myself, but sometimes it’s a little draining. Next time I’m going to have to find a partner in crime.

Since I’m going back to two weddings and a messy house I figured I should blog a little something to tide everyone (i.e. the four and a half people that read my blog) over.

More polaroids with the Holga. This time in black and white.

This wedding kicked serious ass. It was a three day extravanganza in Wellesley, MA and I was so lucky to be a part of it. I first met Connery and Pash in Zihuatanejo while shooting Jess and Brian’s destination wedding. When they asked me to fly up to Massachusetts to be a part of their day I was more than happy to do so. It works out well since I get to go visit friends and family and shoot a few weddings along the way.

In addition to being awesome peeps they both have amazing families. Pash’s family is originally from Ghana and if you’ve never been a part of a Ghanian dance party or partaken in the amazing food you are totally missing out. I was lucky enough to be a part of not one, but two dance parties and ate my way through the country at brunch the day after the wedding.

The welcome party was held at Wellesley College which is also where we did portraits before the ceremony.

The girls got ready at the Hotel Indigo in Newton and the boys got ready at Pash’s childhood home. Then it was off to Wellesley College for photos. The ceremony was presided over Pash’s father who is a minister at Wellesley Congregational Church.

The day after the wedding there was a brunch held at the Obeng house. I wasn’t technically working, but when I saw the incredible Ghanian clothing that the women wore (and the custom pieces that were made for Pash, Connery, and the rest of her family) I had to take a few shots.

  • Connery - Thank you, thank you, Jillian! We couldn’t be happier with the photography. Thanks for making the trip North, we were so thrilled to have you there.
