Glen Manor House Wedding

Oh how I love weddings!  The wedding of Erin and Jake was perfectly exquisite in every way!  Glen Manor House in Newport, RI was the setting for Erin and Jake’s wedding and it has always been my absolute favorite location for a wedding!  It’s simply beautiful inside and out.  Not one detail is left out!  I absolutely love that I can shoot with natural light inside the mansion during the day.  It just adds to the beauty of the photographs!  Erin was the perfect bride!  From her hair to her dress she was just beautiful!  And what can I say…she’s one of the nicest brides I have ever known!  And the groom Jake….well, can we say incredibly handsome?  He’s also one of the nicest guys around!  They make a perfect couple!

The day started out with getting ready photos upstairs in the manor.   We then moved out to the garden for some first look photos and then we did all the formals before the ceremony.  The ceremony took place overlooking the ocean.  The day was extremely hot….in the 90’s and very humid but it was beautiful outside with the beautiful skies and water!  The meal featured a lobster bake and the day wrapped up with the one and only one man rock ‘n’ roll sing-along comedy show of Bruce Jacques.  Let me tell you, that guy can get a party going wild and crazy for the entire night!  The Glen Manor was rocking the night away like you have never seen or heard before!  Everyone was on the dance floor through the end having a grand time!

The day was filled with lots of hugs, laughter and even a few tears.  I will admit, this is the first wedding that I’ve photographed that got me teary eyed.  There were a lot of beautiful memories made that day.

Photography was very important to Erin and Jake so they planned a good amount of time for photography which made for some relaxing time to make a lot of great photographs!  As a wedding photographer this was a dream wedding to photograph!

Erin and Jake thank you for selecting me to photograph your beautiful day!  I hope that all your days are as perfect as your very first one was!  I hope you love and treasure your photographs forever!  xo

Okay…I will make you wait no more!  Here is a super huge share from Erin and Jake’s day.  This was an almost fully covered day at my favorite venue so I’m going all out here!Newport RI Wedding Photographer

Terri & Jim – Best Friends |RI Engagement Photography

It’s not every day you get to photograph a beautiful couple who fell in love when they were younger, went their separate ways, then found each other again!  Especially when you witnessed them in love the first time, when you were all in high school together!  We all went our separate ways years ago (living in separate coasts even) and now, here we are all brought together again…and let me tell you, Jim and Terri are an amazing couple!  Their love is incredible…they are like kids!  Shooting them was a lot of fun, and it brought back so many memories!  Seeing that type of love always amazes me!

Anyhow, I wanted to share a few images from their engagement session that we shot at a local farm!  Due to some traffic issues the shoot itself started later than planned and we lost light very quickly but the resulting shots were amazing!  Just love these two!

We shot this session at the beautiful Chepachet Farms in the town of Chepachet, RI where we all grew up.  Ironically the owner of Chepachet Farms is also an old schoolmate!

Terri really put a lot of thought into the props, etc. that she brought to the session.  She had a lot of signs with various quotes and of all of them I picked this one because in my opinion, it is so them!

Bless you both and I hope you have many years of happiness together!  Thank you for choosing me to shoot your engagement session.  It will always be remembered as one that was very special for me!  xo


Vintage Engagement Session

Vintage Engagement Session

When Shannon contacted me with her dream of having a vintage engagement session I was so excited!  And every time I heard from her it was getting better and better!  She was able to find some of the most awesome props and special pieces to make her session that much special!  When I met Shannon and David at the location and they showed me around the place I knew it would be hard to resist all the fabulous antique pieces that the owner of the property had lovingly collected and so graciously agreed to letting us use whatever we desired!  It was a dream come true!  I would love to have some of his collection to use as studio props, it was simply amazing!  Shannon and David were just adorable and fit the part so perfectly.  We had so much fun during this session.  I really do enjoy creative shoots where I have freedom to be artistic more than anything!  Seriously I could have spent days and days shooting there with Shannon and David and gotten so much more than we did!  Not to mention the light and weather was just perfection!  Looking through my camera was like looking at a movie set and what else can I say…Shannon and David are just hot together!

Sorry, this is going to be a very large share.  And honestly, in the two hours we spent shooting we shot sooooo much more than what I’m going to show here.  Shannon and David your photographs are amazing and you are going to have such a hard time narrowing it down….I’m so sorry!  LOL

2011 Weddings – First Wedding of the Year! | RI Wedding Photographer

The first wedding of the year was a lot of fun!  It was truly one of those weddings that went by so fast it was a blur to me!  I must admit the Patriots Place is a fun place and I cannot wait to go back with my family to do some exploring!  I wanted to share with you some photographs from this wedding.  The bride and groom were just such a fun and adorable couple, I truly enjoyed hanging out with them during their special day!  Check them out!

The bride’s suite at the Renaissance Hotel overlooked the Gillette Stadium, home of the N.E. Patriots!

As a synchro skater this bride grew up on skates and the groom was a hockey player in school!  It was so fitting there was an ice rink right at Patriots Place where their wedding was to take place!   It was just meant to be!  A bride and groom on ice skates was a first for me AND for the rink!  There was a lot of excitement in the air when we entered the changing hut at the rink!

And then it was party time!  And I must admit, the lighting at the Renaissance Hotel was just incredible!!!  It really gave the entire room a fabulous feeling!

It was definitely one of those weddings where everyone was smiling and truly enjoying the occasion!  The bride and groom are adorable together and their friends and relatives truly love them and you could tell it meant so much to everyone who was there that they were able to witness this day!  N and R I wish you all the best as you travel forward in your lives together!  Looking forward to many years of watching your family grow together!

Because Valentine’s Day is right around the corner I have decided that any wedding couple who books and puts down a deposit on their wedding between now and February 14th will receive a FREE engagement shoot with their package (you must mention this when you book)!  You free engagement shoot comes with a DVD of photographs that you can play on your wedding day!  Contact me for more information on my wedding packages!  I do have a lot already booked and I only take a limited number of weddings each year so that I can give each and every one of my couples my individual attention so book early!  When you book me, you get me, you will not be getting someone else!  Oh and yes, all 2011 wedding packages INCLUDE the digital files!  YAY!
