• Welcome to the website of wedding photographer Saavedra Photography My mission is to empower people through photography to love themselves and confidently see the beauty that I see in them.

Joanne and Chris, Married! | DeCordova Sculpture Museum Wedding, the Portraits

And now for the grand finale, the portraits from Joanne and Chris’s wedding. We photographed the majority of these prior to the ceremony which was going to occur at sunset. It was so wonderful meeting all their fun friends and having a blast throughout.  Be sure not to miss part 1 and part 2 of this wedding as well.

We began with some portraits of Chris

After Joanne got into her dress at DeCordova, I took lots and lots of photos of her. I don’t think I need to mention just how gorgeous she is

This was a special moment – I asked her to think about what Chris is going to be like during the First Look

Some more of her wedding dress ruffles

Yummy backlight!

We then wandered around the grounds for photos of just the bride and groom

My. Favorite.

I don’t show a lot of family portraits, but I do them! Yes indeed! I’m pretty proud of this photo because Joanne told me that her parents don’t often smile in photos

After the ceremony, there was a spectacular sunset. I can’t take credit for this photo – Amy took this one – and after reviewing my angle and hers, I think she’s got me beat =)

I asked the security guard to turn this cool sculpture on at night

Thank you, thank you Joanne and Chris for being such expressive and warm people and for giving me the honor to be there for you!
