Beautiful, (crazy chilly), Engagement Session - Newport, Rhode Island

This couple is quickly approaching their big day and I can't wait to capture every second of it. We finally got to meet on a very crisp April morning in Newport, RI. This bride-to-be is one brave girl. I'm not going to lie...I wore a heavier jacket and was still chilly.

Looking forward to seeing you all again real soon!

September Wedding at Hope Artiste Village, Pawtucket, RI

I had the opportunity to photograph an amazing couple a few weeks ago on their wedding day. The bride said she had chosen me to shoot her day, because she liked the use of light and shadows in my photographs. The compliment really meant a lot to me and I hope I came through for her.

 DJ Lights...shining on my bride and groom...constantly changing...during their first dance. I decided to embrace them. They work for this fun series of them enjoying their moment.

Thank you J and D for allowing me to photograph your day. I enjoyed the opportunity.

A Wedding at Newport Beach House, Newport, RI

What a gorgeous setting for the ceremony and reception for this adorable couple. Rain threatened us all week, but held out for the whole afternoon and evening. 

 Getting Ready, The Atlantic Resort, Newport, RI. I fell IN LOVE with this window. With a little furniture movement, I could sneak right in to the little corner it was set in.

 The Bride had two pears of shoes that I photographed. It's always tough to choose photos for a post. I landed on this one, but the other pair was just as pretty.

 I love when the hair and makeup team know exactly the shots I'm hoping for. Diane Carosi from Alpha Beauty Salon, Warwick.

 We only had about a minute left to sneak in some important bridal shots. Always on the look out for natural window light on this one.

 First look at The Atlantic Resort. It's as if this hallway was put there for me! It had amazing window light, it was clean, bright and long. SCORE!

 Walking to the beach for photos. It was VERY overcast as rain was expected throughout the day. It did make for a nice soft color palette for the photos.

 I almost edited that seagull out, but I kind of like him set off in the background.

 This groom couldn't keep his eyes off his bride. It was actually very sweet.

 We did glasses on, glasses off, far away, close up. It's never easy to choose, but here's one!
