Glen Magna Farms – Danvers, MA
Glen Magna Farms is owned by the Danvers Historical Society, a private not-for-profit, founded in 1889 “to discover, collect and preserve objects which illustrate local history, but particularly the history and development of the Town of Danvers.” The Society owns three historic sites, a museum and office building and is steward of the Endicott Burial Ground.
The Farm, survives unrivaled as an estate exemplifying historic North Shore summer living. It typifies the golden age of American gardens when eclecticism and historicism dominated landscape as well as architecture.

A personal note about Jim. He’s a great guy with a fun personality. He’s a husband and a father to 2 of the most adorable kids!
Now from Jim: “Before I got into photography, I would see a tree full of fall colors, drive by a beautiful hill of flowers, look at snow covered mountains, see someone’s face with unique character, and pay close attention to those details.
Since 2006, I’ve been behind the camera. My first experiences back then as a wedding photographer second shooter provided a fast track to understanding a camera. I learned how to shoot during the day of the wedding in the moment. Action packed, swift moving, low light, natural light, outdoors, indoors…This is my comfort zone.”
I want to take this moment to thank Jim for listing me as a preferred on his website! 🙂
A beautiful day in downtown Amesbury Massachusetts for Rebecca and Jon’s wedding. We got the bride and her sisters ready at Salon 57 on Main Street. Hair Stylist Gina Mellone who I recommended this bride to works at this salon and did the lovely bridal parties hair with me on makeup before the headed down to Danvers for a Glen Magna Farms wedding/
Hairstyling has been much more than just a job for Gina, it was a natural calling starting at a young age. She began by cutting the hair of every doll in my childhood home and went on to work in her Grandmother’s salon as a teenager.
Her Grandmother was a great inspiration to me, she loved watching her transform her clients and seeing the results of her hard work and passion. Gina also observed the special connection between a stylist and their clients. When you find a salon with stylists who truly love what they do, there is an undeniable electricity in the air that I can never get enough of.
