T.J. and Diana were married on June 17, 2017 at one of my favorite venues the Hyatt in Cambridge, MA. From a first look on the Charles River to a beautiful tented ceremony and a reception on the top floor overlooking all of Boston... What a wedding!

I can't even believe two years have gone by since our we said "I DO".  It was everything we wanted and more – a small ceremony with vows we wrote together while drinking champagne. Everyday, I love this man more. He is my rock while making me laugh and challenging me everyday. He lets me be me, encourages and supports all the ideas I have, and is such an awesome buddy to go through life with! I feel lucky everyday to be Mrs. Pawlik. I look forward to a life time together and cant wait to see what the future brings!

As a wedding photographer, I have seen it all and we really wanted to have the time to take off to enjoy it (including a 10 day trip to Costa Rica). Since summers are always crazy, there would be no way we both could get away for 3 weeks, so a March wedding it was! We lucked out because there was no snow and it was 60 degrees out on our wedding weekend. So we got to do all the photo ideas I wanted around Portland. We recently went back to visit the Portland Regency Hotel and they surprised us and put us in the same room that we were in when we had our wedding there! Even 2 years later they treated us like gold. This hotel is really above the rest!
A big shout out to Christen of Reflections by Christen for taking theses awesome wedding photos... that I have all over my house! Our wedding tradtion is to rewatch our wedding video that I am still obsessed with! Thank you Jeff from JF3 Productions for capturing our special day for us to relive.

Cheers to love!
I can't wait to capture other wedding days so they can treasure it as much as we do!

It was a beautiful Wednesday in September and boy, did I had quite the adventure! Sheridan and Jay eloped at the Wood Island Lighthouse in Biddeford, Maine! They had the fabulous Julie Draper marry them and a few witnesses that consisted of the boat crew and me. Sheridan wore two adorable braids and a cute little white dress. The boat crew took us on an adventure. We set off from the coast and took the boat for about a 15 minute ride to the lighthouse. We then walked off the boat and walked about a half mile across the island down this really cool boardwalk. We set up shop and the couple was eager to say their vows, which took place right next to the open ocean. Their vows were short and sweet and we were all so excited for them. They really did get the perfect day for it. Our original date turned out to be a big storm and we had to reschedule. After the ceremony, we got a tour of the lighthouse and checked out the island. We climbed to the top of the lighthouse for some really cool views and pics. This elopement adventure was something that was so special to be able to document! Congrats to these two! I wish them so much love and luck in life.

Last month, I held Dragonfly Photography's annual holiday mini sessions! It was an amazing day filled with some of my favorite kiddos dressed in the cutest outfits... Some came in matching pajamas and others dressed in their holiday best... They made me smile all day! It was also great to see new faces join the Dragonfly Photography client list and it was so awesome to take their photos! With Christmas right around the corner, I wanted to share some of my favorite photos and highlights from this festive day - I hope you enjoy!

This past summer, I photographed Parker's 1-year birthday celebration! This was a meaningful shoot for me because I documented Parker's 1-month milestone photo session along with his parents, Melissa & Niko's wedding day! It's been so fun to see Parker grow up and this day really showed off his personality. He did a cake smash and rinsed off in a tub in Pierce Island in Portsmouth, NH. The water was a bit cold, but he didn't mind it at all. I hope you enjoy all the photos -
