The NewlyJets: The Portraits…and the Mailman

After our first look, we all boarded the trolley (including our chihuahua, Bruce Banner) and headed downtown for our bridal party portraits. The city of New Bedford is rich with history and wasn’t lacking in gorgeous backgrounds of dark brick and rich stone, cobblestone streets, and wrought iron accents as well as our very own Whaling Museum.

We wanted our photos to feel like home, and I think we accomplished just that.




Given that New Bedford is a very small city where everyone knows your name and your business, we were sure we’d run into some people we knew. Literally five minutes into the shoot, we saw two of our wedding guests, one of my coworkers, AND my best friend’s dad—the city mailman! We ushered him onto our “set” and made him pose with us.

    You’re so lucky to have such a talended uncle/ photographer. I love how well the red brick complements the BM dresses. And I think it’s safe to say that Bruce stole the show. He’s too cute for me to handle at the moment.

    I adore the lighting in these photos. They DO like just like home and feel so cosy and intimate. 🙂
