I had the fab opportunity of shooting a rehearsal dinner for @kateosborne tonight at the St. Regis #deervalley and it looked like they were serving the yummiest burgers. And so I'm currently waiting in the drive thru at Wendy's for a burger 🍔. I mean, it's not a St. Regis burger, but it will do 🙃 the end. Oh and here is a dreamy pic I took at the #donnyzavalaworkshop in Oahu! Cheers! #shannonelizabethphotography
Today I am photographing my last elopement of the season. It's been such a joy to photograph over 30 weddings this year, both as a lead and a second shooter. Next wedding: my own 😍 throwback to June when I photographed a sweet Nantucket Elopement #lovewhatyoudo
I'd like to share my very first styled session with you all. Here is a little teaser more to come. I had a vision that I was striving for. I wanted something that was a bit more out of the box. The excitement and fulfillment that I got shooting this was such a breath of fresh air. I got to express a side of myself I don't get to do often. I collaborated with Megan Soverino @isledeflores .She is an incredibly talented floral designer and stylist. She made my dream a reality. I wanted to make sure this session included many local talented people as well. I am so thrilled with the outcome of this shoot. I can't stop looking at the pictures. So many amazing elements in this shoot that made it all come together in such a gorgeous and beautiful way.

Pretty pretty! We're back on island after a wonderful day trip off to shoot some family portraits. 💕 We're really excited for a few upcoming proposals - it must be engagement season! We may even be using the drone for them! Stay tuned! 🤗Congrats making it through Monday! 🎊
Brittany & her Father 💜Grateful to share some of the kindest words I have ever received...."As the father of the bride I can say that the photos you captured are a priceless gift given to me. It’s all I ever wanted and more from this most special day. My wife Mary-Jo and I keep the book of your wedding photos close by and we get to look at them daily and it brings the most incredible smile and tears at the same time to us as we can relive that most incredible day you so magnificently captured forever for us. Fast forward a month. A year. Or into the future on Brittany’s and Jonah’s 5 year anniversary and beyond.....you won’t remember the flowers. You will have forgotten the songs played and you danced to. You won’t remember what you had for dinner. All you have to bring back those incredible memories are the beautiful photos captured by you! The McCann's favorite, Katie Kaizer. When we use the word photography it doesn’t really do justice to your work because honestly your talents are an art form no different than the finest Picasso painting. I have seen endless friend’s wedding books of their kids big day but none of these can live up to what you created for Mary-Jo and I. Everyone has the normal photos. . . but you were able to spend three days with us and capture all those behind the scenes moments where the laughter, tears and the fun happened. We are so incredibly thankful you captured it for us to enjoy for the rest of our lives. Your skill and ability to capture those crazy, emotional, or silly moments are the best of the best! You became part of our family forever through this process and I cannot thank you enough for capturing one of the memorable events in our families lifetime! All I can say from one happy dad is THANK YOU!" . . . . . . #springwedding#love#ack#Nantucket#NantucketWeddingphotographer#happyallthetime#happiness#thankful#fatherdaughterdance#KatieKaizerPhotography#WeddingSeason#NantucketWeddings#WeddingSeason#islandlife#weddingmoments#weddingday#bronahmcsmith#fatheranddaughter#family#realmoments#AuthenticNantucketWeddings#heartfeltmoment#weddingreview#fatherofthebride#emotions#familylove
Here's some stunning florals from the talented Mary Beth from Mary Beth Floral Design and by her amazing team. I had the pleasure of photographing her work that she created for a gorgeous wedding. I loved that she used a lot of local resources as well.
One more sneak peek from Alex and Becky's big day before we call it a night. I loved these wraps Becky gifted her bridesmaids. They were exactly what we needed as we strolled through town on a crisp fall day and so pretty! 💙We're back to editing tomorrow and so excited for some gallery deliveries this week. Goodnight friends!
Becky was such a stunning bride! One of the best parts of being a wedding photographer is watching our brides experience that indescribable emotion when they finish hair and makeup, put their dress, jewerly and shoes on and realize it's time! I loved watching Becky prepare to meet her groom yesterday. There were lots of laughs and happy tears and it was the beginning of the perfect day. Becky was described as a thoughtful person throughout the day by friends and family and the details she included proved that. I can't wait to share more of the thoughtful details she worked into her wedding day! Hair: @rjmillersalon Makeup: @emilynantucket Dress: @bhldn Florals: @flowersonchestnut
Congratulations Alex & Becky! What a beautiful wedding day! So much love and I cried 4 times, yes 4 different times! We wouldn't have wanted to close out our wedding season any other way! Can't wait to share more from the big day (check my story for a few more previews)! Hair: @rjmillersalon Makeup: @emilynantucket Florals: @flowersonchestnut Dress: @bhldn
We can't believe how fast this week is going! We're almost to our final double header wedding weekend of the season and we couldn't be more excited! I hope you're all having a wonderful week. Thank you to @jonathanmgray for this lovely shot of Jenna and Chris right after they pledged their love and devotion to each other in front of their friends and family!
