A Charming Engagement Session in the Berkshires

Maybe it's because we're all ready for Spring, or maybe it's because this couple is just too dang cute, but either way, I just knew this Berkshires engagement session by Christopher Duggan had to be shared today!  Alex and Justin are two yoga instructors who met and fell in love at Jacob's Pillow, where they both worked in 2013.  So when they contacted Christopher about shooting their engagement pics at Kripalu, it was like a match made in Heaven!  Check out these fun images, and be sure to hop on over to this post to see their sweet Berkshires wedding at the Dream Away Lodge!

Berkshire Wedding Collective members collaborate!

One of the advantages of organizing a group like the Berkshire Wedding Collective, is that I get to know some pretty talented people!  And it always gives me a warm, fuzzy feeling when the members get to know each other and collaborate on various projects!  Usually, these projects will include sponsoring events like the Berkshire Wedding Tour, or styled photo shoots; however, sometimes they involve something totally non-wedding-related, such as in this case, where Tricia McCormack was able to take some family portraits for Christopher Duggan!  And let me tell you...family "sittings" just aren't what they used to be (thank goodness!).  Gone are the days of paint-by-number backdrops in an Olan Mills studio!  Tricia's shoots are always fun, relaxed, casual, candid and ALWAYS capture the true essence of her subjects!  Take a look at this fun family session!  I simply LOVE the way it turned out! (submitted by Christopher Duggan)
