Patel Surprised 25th Anniversary Party

I was called upon to photograph a surprised anniversary party for past clients. Everything was planned and executed by the children and it was such a joy to photograph all the love the family had for each other. What a way to wrap up my year!

Sara & Rick’s Surprise Engagement/Proposal

I am so happy my two closest friends are getting married next year!!

Weeks before the engagement, Rick reached out to ask for my help in capturing the proposal and of course I wanted to be there. The proposal took place at Jose’s in Cambridge where Sara and Rick spent their first Valentine’s Day. While hiding out for the right moment, the management and staff were so kind to make this moment special and to make sure I wasn’t seen. As soon as Rick got down on one knee, I popped out from around the corner to capture the unforgettable moment. Sara was so full of joy and surprise that she didn’t even realize I was there, clicking away. I was literally a foot away from them and she still didn’t notice. It wasn’t until Rick pointed me out that she was left with even more joy and excitement. The look on her face was priceless and I was so beyond happy for them!

After a celebratory margarita we had more more stop to make. Sara’s parents lived right down the road and Rick had arranged for all of their friends and family to surprise Sara one more time! What an amazing night, everything went as planned!

I can’t wait to celebrate with them next year!

Pavana & Gabriel: Boston Taj Wedding

This was one of the most unforgettable weddings I have ever photographed and it was a true honor! I have always been a supporter of gay marriage and Pavana and Gabriel proved that love is love. Although they’ve been together for awhile, you can still see the spark in them and how brightly their love shines through. Both set of families were so amazing and welcoming, I felt like part of the family by the end of the day. I couldn’t have imagined a more perfect wedding for them!

Finally, this amazing event wouldn’t have been possible without the hard work and endless dedication from the Mint2Be planning team!

Venue: Taj Boston Hotel

Decor: Alankar

Event Planning: Mint2Be Events

Entertainment: Boston Sound and Light

Floral: Dogwood Floral

The wedding has also been featured and published on GayWeddings.com and Maharani Weddings.
