    Matt+Chera = romantic and fun photography!

    Matthew and I just celebrated 5 years of marriage and have been shooting weddings and portraits for over five years. We have this amazing connection in life where we just get each other and get moments that are meaningful to others. I could tell you more about us, but I'd rather show you some of our work! Thanks for stopping by!

They happened to live in the same building; the building happened to have only one working elevator; they happened to need that elevator at the same time on the same day.  A chance meeting and a shy conversation began Mark  and Danielle’s story.  A casual conversation started a friendship that brought them to their beautiful wedding day this past Saturday.

Danielle smiling, poised, breathtaking, walked into the Memramcook Chapel, and Mark needed only see the doors open to his bride before he smiled, and then with a shrug, resignedly took out a tissue to wipe the tears that had quickly filled eyes.
Danielle,  your details, the heartfelt speeches at the reception, and the way Mark looked at you with so much love made your wedding day perfect and so memorable.  You can tell how undeniable happy the two of you are, and we feel privileged to have partaken in your day!  I hope you’re enjoying an incredible honeymoon as well as these seek peaks – Congratulations again!

I am not very good at goodbyes, my family moved around a lot when I was growing up, so I usually just deal with farewell’s by  pretending nothing at all happened.  I was doing a pretty good job of this after our great friends Erin and Devon moved away. I was in denial. I think I had subconsciously told myself they were on vacation.  Then in the mail the sweetest gift and a card arrived.  My wonderful friend Erin had found the most beautiful little porcelain children’s tea set for Anna, and written a sweet little note; that is when a few pesky tears blurred my vision, and I realized –I miss them – I really miss them.

Devon and Erin you are always welcome in our home and in our lives, we can’t wait for your visits and road trips to visit you, and I am counting down the days till you come back to the East Coast!!!

Here are a few shots from the stylized shoot we did last year, where Erin and Devon were gracious enough to be our models; more pictures and info on the shoot can be seen here:

Melanie and Jetty are just the sweetest couple, and we have been photographing their story as it has unfolded over the last few years, first with their engagement shoot, then their beautiful wedding.  Our excitement for them kept growing as I followed Melanie’s blog,  and grew even more when I learned they were expecting their first little one.  A few weeks ago, they brought Elias to us at just seven days old, and this little man stole my heart.  He fought sleep for a bit, but with a little coaxing from his loving Mamma, he fell asleep and was just the perfect little subject!

Elias, just so you know, you were blessed with incredible parents, grandparents, and Aunties who are just teeming with love for you!  You are the sweetest little boy with a world of promise, and I can’t wait to see you as you grow!

    I just love these pictures- you captured our little boy absolutely perfectly!

Over the last few years we have photographed Sarah and Nick’s engagement, their beautiful wedding, and just a few weeks ago we had the pleasure of meeting their sweet Livia.  They carried in little Liv, still sleeping in her car seat.  She was absolutely perfect during the whole shoot -a little model.  As we placed her in each snuggly pose, Sarah held her hand clasped by her heart cutely overwhelmed by how perfect her sleeping baby was.

Sarah and Nick -she is just perfect, and we can’t wait to see her again in just a few months!

On this sunny Friday, I thought I would give you two more reasons to smile on this beautiful day.  Jediah and Jarvis melt my heart – they go to sleep like a dream,  they wake up smiling,  and I just can’t get enough of them!
