October Wedding with Family and Friends

Posted in Personal by harkinsphoto on October 21, 2014


And now for something completely different.

This past weekend I attended the wedding of my niece Meredith and her husband Joel.

Picture perfect day with soft light, lush foliage and locations views at the Methuen Memorial Music Hall and a reception at The Barn at Gibbet Hill in Groton MA.

The best part was I wasn’t working.

I was playing my part as the wedding photographers nightmare, an uncle with his camera in the background.

Congratulations Meredith and Joel.

Here are just a few views from the night and some of my final portraits selected for the book.
