Boston and Providence wedding photographer Michael Hendrickson sums up his style best in his own words. He has “a focus concentrated on posed journalistic and traditional wedding photography. I want your photos to be unique, breathtaking, and timeless.”
His approach is perfect considering these are shots that can only be taken once. Michael’s style is the apex of posed wedding photography, from humorous to heartwarming. He also takes full advantage of his ability to control lighting and the background, ensuring that not a single element within the frame feels out of place.
Couples, seniors, families, and weddings are what call to Iryna and her camera! In particular, outdoor ceremonies and photoshoots where abundant Golden Hour lighting and seaside backgrounds lend atmosphere to the day’s events. Photojournalistic weddings are Iryna’s specialty.
Working seamlessly in the background, she captures the day’s events for images that carry a spontaneous and authentic character to them! And when presenting her final images, we’re astounded by her eye for rich tonality and dramatic lighting that leave you feeling as joyful as you did in the moment of the photo.

Katye and Joe Brier met while studying photojournalism at Syracuse University. Now, the Happy Couple apply their decades of experience to capturing documentary moments that go unnoticed by even most photographers! We love how infrequently their subjects are looking into the camera. They find those minuscule moments of pure art that end up carrying the entire wedding story free of posing.
We love just how much Kelly Louise’s lifestyle photography informs her wedding images. The settings her couples pose within add so much interest to the frame. Classic cars, bouquets, mountains, and brick buildings tell wedding tales that range from contemporary to fine art in style. Though maternities and intimate weddings are her specialties, Kelly also photographs families, children, and a little bit of everything else.
