          Sam and Meg’s wedding was a blast! The ceremony was beautiful, and the reception could not have been more fun!! Nancy was fantastic–looking through Sam and Meg’s wedding album brings back all of the special memories of the day. Nancy captured all of the emotion and excitement of the day which is why she was one of the first vendors we booked for our wedding this September–we just had to have her! We can’t wait to work with her at our wedding–and how fun that she was at Sam and Meg’s wedding where it all began–4 years ago!ReplyCancel

          Hi, I am Meghan Parisi’s mom and she and Sam were married on October 30, 2004. She wrote a small recap of her wedding and mentioned at that time that her sister, Katelin, was married seven weeks prior to her own wedding. Fortunately, for my husband and myself, both sets of brides and grooms knew exactly what they wanted and did all of the planning themselves!
          Meghan chose Nancy Gould after researching many photographers online and in person, and was particularly impressed by Nancy’s photojournalistic approach. We witnessed the magic of her skill throughout the entire time from morning till midnight.
          Nancy began the day, as we did, by just being there to absorb all of the activities that lead up to the wedding and reception. She quietly and in-obtrusively meandered around our home as the girls applied their make up, sipped coffee, and shared in the excitement of the occasion. Meghan’s wedding gown was hanging, as if in mid air, with her wedding shoes beneath it. Nancy caught the moment.
          We have a balcony the overlooks the living room in our home where Nancy positioned the bride and her bridesmaids as the father of the bride gazed upwards to take in the scene. Nancy caught the moment.
          My special request of catching Meghan at the church just as she was stepping out of the limousine was an amazing portrait of exhilarated anticipation. However, the picture of the newlyweds at the reception as they were stepping out of the limousine full of love and contentment said it all.
          Nancy somehow managed to photograph every guest in attendance and even zeroed in on my nine year old nephew, who had created a face on his slice of wedding cake, from the Halloween candies that were at each table as favors. She truly captured the ambience of this happy event and created a treasury of memories that beautifully told the story of the wedding of Meghan and Sam.
          But of course she would….she is a photojournalist!ReplyCancel

          Meg and Sam’s wedding was a wonderful event. As matron of honor, I felt it was my duty to make sure my sister was relaxed and enjoying the day she had done so much to plan for. With Nancy taking charge of capturing the day, Meg was able to sit back and trust that everything would be documented. I was impressed with how buttoned-up Nancy and her team were throughout the day. Nancy was organized and sensitive about getting some of the key candids that truly captured what the day was all about. Nancy’s effort and creativity were evident in the wide variety of shots she was able to show my sister. At one point, she even looked like a Charlie’s Angel as she was maneuvering in positions on the floor to get an interesting angle of Meg and Sam dancing. At any rate, because it was clear that Nancy was a professional, Meg and Sam were able to focus on each other and their guests on this special dayReplyCancel

          Meghan and Sam’s wedding day was a very special day to be a part of. Meghan was very beautiful and it was so nice to see them happy together staring their new life. Every picture shows the love and fun not only they showed but all of their guests experienced. One picture that stands out for me is Meghan coming out of the limo with the dark storm clouds at the reception and the umbrella, it was perfect because it showed a gleaming bride who didn’t let a little rain dampen her spririts that day. The color in that photo was amazing. I also enjoyed all their black and white photos and remember their thank you card vividly as a picture from that special day.ReplyCancel

          Meg and Sam’s Wedding Day pictures were beautiful. They will be able to relive their magical day as they journey through life as husband and wife…and now parents of almost 2.
          They will be able to share their special day with those they love and are loved by as they look and relook through their wedding pictures. Nancy captured so many special moments of Meg and Sam’s love. I am so happy that such a great friend married a great guy….and their are pictures to “proof” it.ReplyCancel

        • Victoria

          Meg and Sam’s wedding was beautiful! I loved the pictures that captured the natural beauty of their day- the leaves were gorgeous! As Sam’s brother’s wife, I love the way that Nancy captured the guys’ personalities perfectly in her photographs. The pictures that she snapped of our nephew, Sammy, were absolutely gorgeous, too!ReplyCancel

        • Betsy

          My husband and I were so honored to share in Meg and Sam’s special day. Everything was just perfect, from the church decorations to the gorgeous reception site. The photographs truly capture the beauty and love of the day. I’m so glad that our friends have such wonderful pictures to help relive these amazing memories.ReplyCancel

          Meghan and Sam’s wedding was a very special day for such a delightful couple and all those who have known and loved them over the years. Their happiness and joy was very contagious…and the photographers captured it all. Although we now have wonderful memories of their magical day, Meghan and Sam have a thoughtful and artistic collection of photos to enjoy for a lifetime. They are sure to become a family treasure.ReplyCancel

          It would be impossible to look at Meghan and Sam’s wedding album and not notice how each photograph captures the happiness and joy of their very special day. I’ve known Meghan since the day she was born. Her beautiful personality and radiant smile come through in every picture. Having known Meghan’s parents for many years along with their extended families and friends, I was impressed at how Nancy Gould made sure to include family and friends in photographs throughout the day. Meghan and Sam are fortunate to have a wedding album that reflects not only their happiness but the joy of everyone who was there to celebrate Meghan and Sam’s love for each other.ReplyCancel

              I couldn’t believe the limo was picking us up 3 hours early for picture taking in the Public Garden. Why would we need that much time for photos? As it turned out everything worked out great. The weather was perfect and the Bride, Brides maids and Mother-of-the Bride were gorgeous. Love, DadReplyCancel
