Susan & Bryan's Engagement Session in the Berkshires

We had a blast taking lovely pictures outdoors while these two told me about their hopes and dreams to have a farm of their own—they are currently prepping land to plant 800 apple trees! They brought along their adorable daughter Analise, who was born in March. She was the perfect baby and I love that she got in some of the pictures as well.

Rainy Day Engagement Session

A word from Tricia: Driving out to Cummington, MA to meet Annie and Gil there was a thick fog from melting snow and a light rain that was falling. I was worried about the weather for this engagement shoot but Annie assured me that she and Gil were up for anything. Since Annie is in her second year of law school in Vermont and Gil is a busy professional in the Boston area, they knew they had to seize the moment rain or shine.

Winter Engagement Session in the Berkshires

A word from Tricia: I met Shawn and Mallory just after Thanksgiving for their engagement session at Kennedy Park in Lenox, MA. The couple currently lives in Denver, CO but was in town to spend the holiday with Mallory's parents. They brought Chester, their new puppy, with them to the session, which I loved!

Wintry, Edgy Styled Shoot at The Mount

There are days when I find myself scouring the pages of Pinterest, or getting lost in some fabulous wedding blog spending countless hours enjoying gorgeous images from styled shoots.  There's just something so liberating about being a part of a shoot, and being able to design something beautiful that comes from your own imagination...not from the vision of a bride, groom or mother (who's living vicariously through her engaged child!)!

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)

Featured Member--Tricia McCormack Photography

When it comes to weddings in the Berkshires, there is no one else (besides me, of course!) who gets as excited about "talking shop" as Tricia McCormack!  She understands the trends, knows the venues and is connected to just about everyone in the County, through either her photography business or her fitness business!  Tricia and I have worked together on numerous occasions, whether it has been a styled shoot, a networking event (like the Lenox Wedding Tour) or our upcoming shared space!  I've really enjoyed getting to know her and had fun reading her responses to my interview questions.

Featured Member--Queen Anne's Lace (Carolyn Valenti Flowers)

I have to say that I've been enjoying these interviews just a little too much, and this one is no different!  Ever since I've been involved with weddings in the Berkshires, I have been a HUGE fan of Carolyn Valenti's work.  Her style is so romantic and flowing, and it NEVER fails to delight!  So when I finally got to meet her and realized what a wonderful person she is, it made her work just that much more enjoyable!  Here's how Carolyn answered my get-to-know-you questions:

It is with great excitement (and a big sigh of relief!) that I can finally announce the arrival of the Berkshire Wedding Collective!  As you may already know, this Collective is a curated collection of the finest wedding professionals we have serving the Berkshires of Western Massachusetts.  These businesses are owned and operated by people I know and trust, with stellar backgrounds and exemplary customer service skills.  The quality of their work is impeccable and most (if not all) have been published numerous times by the likes of Style Me Pretty, Grace Ormonde Wedding Style, The Knot, Boston Weddings, Wedding Chicks, Wedding Lovely...the list goes on and on.

It is my hope that brides and grooms in the throes of planning their destination wedding in the Berkshires will look to the Collective as an invaluable resource--a Berkshires wedding concierge service, so to speak.  The relationships we've built with our unique venues, photographers, cinematographers, stationers, florists and so on, will enable us to play matchmaker between the couple and our members, and collectively, we will be able to bring their wedding dreams to life!
