Attleboro, MA Wedding at Colonel Blackinton Inn {Karen + Walter}

Earlier this month I had the pleasure of photographing Karen and Walter's intimate wedding at the Colonel Blackinton Inn in Attleboro, MA. This couple definitely had karma on their side because rain was slotted for the whole day but when the morning came, we actually found patches of time where the rain was only a faint drizzle, barely noticeable really, so that we could walk across the street to a lovely park and photograph this beautiful couple outside on their wedding day. We were able to sneak out again after their vows to the front porch of the inn to take some special photograph's with the groom's daughter and bride's step daughter. This little munchkin was so adorable to photograph.

As I wrote in my first blog post at Colonel Blackinton Inn for Elizabeth and Sean's wedding, I absolutely love photographing at this venue. If you're planning an intimate wedding here, please do reach out! I'd love to be a part of your day.

This wedding is part of my series of intimate weddings. These range from courthouse elopements to up to three hours at any venue of your choice, be it structured like this one or in a park or other unique location. These are my favorite weddings to photograph. My intimate wedding and elopement couples always win my heart.

Enjoy!

Lakeville, MA Wedding at Loon Pond Lodge {Jonathan + Christyne}

Congratulations to Jonathan and Christyne!

Last October, I photographed Christyne and Jonathan's beautiful wedding at the Loon Pond Lodge in Lakeville, MA. You may also remember their 2016 engagement session at the Roger Williams Park in Providence, RI. I loved working with this fun loving couple.

Since I was just eight weeks postpartum at the time, I delivered the images last year but am just now going back to pay a little tribute on the blog. This time delay certainly does not represent how I feel about this wedding or this lovely couple!

Please enjoy a few images from their special day including their first look in the woods and a gazebo ceremony above the lake.

TEAM Tracy Rodriguez Photography is coming to Yogathon 2018!!

Yogathon 2013

As many of you know, I have been involved with an incredible nonprofit, Yoga Reaches Out, for the last six years. Each year I have committed to fundraising, to introducing the organization to more and more friends and family, to joining their committee, and, last year to forming my first ever team for New England Yogathon! This year, I am excited to say that I am again forming a team and I would love to have you on it!

Yogathon 2012

If you've been there you know, there is just something absolutely incredible about this day. The collective energy in the room of 1,000 giving, like-minded, beautiful people is palpable. I look forward to this day like a kid waiting for Christmas.

To give you a bit of background, each participant is asked to raise a minimum of $250 for Boston Children's Hospital. And through those donations along with sponsorships, I am so proud to say that this event has funded an incredible wellness center for the families and loved ones at Boston Children's Hospital, providing yoga, reiki, massage, and more.

Along with the personal goal that I set for myself each year of $1,000 in fundraising, I am adding to that the goal of gathering people to join Team Tracy Rodriguez Photography for a day of yoga with a purpose! So please mark your calendars for Sunday, April 29th, at Gillette Stadium (Foxboro, MA)!

If you have any questions, please feel free to email me at tracy@thrgallery.com or call me at 203.984.0013.

And, you can view, download and print photographs from previous years here.

Yogathon 2016

Maternity Leave Update!

Hi friends! It's been a while so I thought I'd write a quick post to check in and let you all know how we've been doing.

My little baby Mateo is quickly approaching six months at the end of February and I can hardly believe it. We have been enjoying all of the newborn snuggling (although, I'm not allowed to call him that any more now that he's passed three months!) Having this time together has been truly amazing. Watching his development has been one of the most fascinating experiences of my life. And his little smiles and laughs and cuddles are so completely rewarding.

I have decided to extend my maternity break with him for the time being. Do continue to reach out as I have been keeping a list of those to reach back out to when I start shooting again. I will likely ease back in in the warmer weather. And of course, if you've already booked a wedding, have no fear, I will be there. I'm just not taking any more on for the time being. I promise to stay in touch here on my blog and on facebook and instagram when I have updates for you.

Lots of love,

Tracy

Tracy Rodriguez Photography Wins Wedding Wire Couple's Choice Awards Four Years In A Row!

Boston Wedding Photographer Award

Wow! Thank you to all of my amazing wedding clients for helping me win the 2018 WeddingWire Couples Choice Award!

As many of you know, I welcomed my son Mateo into the world in August and therefore my wedding season was pretty short last year. Needless to say, I was not expecting this award this year given the shorter season. So, wow, just wow! Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review based on your intimate wedding / elopement or full day wedding. Your reviews continue to make such a difference for my business via things like this award! Thank you! And while this year will also be a bit slower as I navigate my new work-life balance, I am so excited to work with all of my 2018 clients!

Don't worry, if you haven't yet submitted a review for your wedding, now is a great time to do so! If you have a moment, please post one to Wedding Wire and help me to continue to grow organically.

Happy Anniversary, Elizabeth and Jason!

Here's to wishing Elizabeth and Jason a very happy first anniversary! I absolutely loved being a part of their beautiful wedding last September at at The Log Cabin in Holyoke, MA. If you missed it, you can check out Elizabeth and Jason's Log Cabin Wedding on the blog. Enjoy!

If you're interested in booking a wedding package or would like more information, please contact me today.

Welcome, Mateo!

Please welcome to the world my little peanut, Mateo Thomas Forbes! He was born on August 25, 2017, sharing my late grandfather's birthday. We couldn't be more thrilled to have him here, sleepless nights and all. And while I've retreated into my "baby bubble" for a while, I promise to be back, posting all kinds of cuteness in the near future.

Thank you all foryour patience as I return emails a bit slower than usual. For questions on my maternity leave and what that means for photo shoots, take a look at my Maternity Leave Blog Post.

With so much love,

Tracy

Maternity Leave - Be in Touch!

I am writing this post as I prep for my very last photo shoot before our baby boy is expected to arrive. It's hard to believe that it's already August and my maternity leave is just about to start!

I thought it would be helpful to share my game plan for those of you interested in shooting together. I've been asked more times than I'd like if I am going to be coming back to work and the answer is 100% yes! The only TBD is the exact timing. It will all depend on when our little guy decides to make his arrival and how my recovery and new family time goes. That said, I expect to come back to shooting in a limited capacity this fall and to return full time in the spring. Here's what this means for...

Yogis - Reach out! I know the fall is a really popular time for photographs. If you're interested in shooting outside this fall, please contact me and let me know. {If you fill out this yoga photo shoot prep form, that will definitely help get the process started.} I have a list of yogis and studios to reach out to as soon as I know my schedule for the fall and will be happy to add you to that list. I will be going based on a first-come (to email) first-serve basis so don't delay if you know you'd like to work together this year. And, if you know you're looking for an indoor only session, please indicate that as those shoots will be given priority for late November and December when we can no longer shoot outside comfortably.

Branding Clients - Same goes as for my yogis! If you're looking for an indoor session, I will be able to accommodate that this year in November or December and into 2017. If you're looking for an outdoor session, definitely still reach out. {You can fill out this branding photo shoot prep form to get the planning started.}

Families - I hope to be able to offer my Fall Family Mini Sessions this year in mid-November. {Perhaps November 11+12, 2017.} Please follow my Facebook page and check back here on my blog for updates. Families who have participated in previous years will be given a 24 hour advanced notice sign up advantage before they go to the masses. Note that these do usually sell out very quickly and I will do my best to accommodate everyone should it work for me to return to shooting in the fall.

Intimate and Full Day Weddings - Contact me as usual to set up a consultation. I anticipate being able to shoot intimate weddings starting again this fall and am booking full day weddings for 2018.

Communication - The best way to contact me is via email at tracy@thrgallery.com. Either directly or via my contact me form on my website. While not on maternity leave, I always respond within 24 hours. While on maternity, let's be honest, who knows... :) In all seriousness, I will do my best to balance my new family life with my amazing work life and return your emails in a timely fashion. Messages that come in via facebook messenger, facebook comment or instagram messenger are easily missed and therefore may not be responded to in a timely fashion so please do use email when possible.

Thank you all so much for all of the love and well wishes that have been coming in. They mean more to me and my family than you know. So here's all that love, right back atcha!

xo,
Tracy
