Congratulations to Stephanie and Jake on their amazing Beauport Hotel Wedding last week!  Situated on the Gloucester waterfront, with amazing views of the Harbor and the Atlantic Ocean, Beauport Hotel Gloucester is one of New England’s most desirable seaside wedding venues.  Located in the heart of Gloucester, this wedding venue offers an all-inclusive experience that is top notch on the north shore.

The Newlyweds

People often ask us if wedding photography gets boring.  If weddings become common or lose their uniqueness after seeing so many.  The answer is simply “No Way”!  Stephanie and Jake’s wedding was also just amazing!

The couple chose to do a First Look.  Disclaimer, everybody knows that we are big fans of the First Look so we were quite happy hearing this news.  After shooting at Beauport a few times, the absolute best location of the First Look is on their back patio, behind the reception hall.  This little nook offers a private location for a First Look along with great views of water.  Stephanie and Jake also added their unique touch to the First Look with writing each other letters to read, while standing back to back, before the reveal.  Sharing their private thoughts in a letter always leads to an emotional moment, but the couple held it together and shared some special time with each other before the day’s big events!

After the First Look, we captured some bridal party & family photos on the Beauport Hotel’s patio.  Just a message to future couples, the Beauport deck is very sunny so make sure your photographer brings a large free-standing flash to offset the sunlight!

Jake and Stephanie’s reception was high-class, with a live band for some great entertainment.  Towards the end of the evening, we managing to steal the newlyweds for some night shots on the beach!  Congrats again to Stephanie and Jake, here is a small preview of your wedding photographs!
