A Gorgeous Wedding at One Rhodes Place, Cranston, Rhode Island

This couple has an incredible story leading up to their wedding day. When clients share their stories with me, I'm able to direct my focus accordingly when observing subjects throughout the day. I try to be sure I'm strategically placed to capture the most real moments. I want to create beautiful portraits of people looking at the camera, but I also want to capture the images that show unexpected emotion. These are the photographs that tell the story of YOU and these become MY most favorite photographs. 

We caught a beautiful day starting with a quick stop in Cranston to see the groom before heading to the Renaissance Providence Downtown Hotel for photos with the bridal party. Once that limo pulled up, it was a short trip to St. Bartholomew in Providence for the ceremony. That afternoon got toasty. We met and melted just a little at Roger Williams Park in Providence for formals and fun. Our last stop was One Rhodes Place in Cranston to photograph the big party. 

Meet the bride and groom. They are a playful couple and I wanted to catch all of it. That being said, it's always important to capture traditional images as well. I love seeing a gallery come together with a variety of traditional and emotional portraits.

I loved the color scheme of this wedding. The guys were quite proud of their patterned socks! It was a nice touch.

This is an example of a very nice portrait on the left with the grandma and flower girl looking right at me. I feel like the story is in the photo on the right. That little flower girl was squeezable and I can feel that tight grandma squeeze just looking at the photo. I'm always looking to create both types of images whenever I can.

The godmother to the mass. She asked if she could pop in the bride's portrait in for a second. I never say no to that!

I love a good mirror shot. This little flower girl looks and feels like a princess. I love her mom, the bride, looking on as they wrap up their finishing touches.

I arrived at St. Bartholomew Church in Providence before the bride's limo. This is when I take a few minutes to grab candid portraits of the guests and try to carve out some fun moments.

The same is true for the wedding party. They've gotten used to having me around and are no longer shy.

I do have a lovely photograph of the Groom and his Dad looking perfectly at the camera. I really feel that this photograph captures their close relationship much better.

Why do the Groomsmen always want to lift the Bride and scare the crap out of her? She was a great sport at Roger Williams Park in Providence, Rhode Island.

The Bride decided to hand off her bouquet. We decided to break away from the crowd with just her and her husband for a few shots. This is her more serious photograph. I LOVE this image of her, but if you really want to know how I remember this fun bride, continue on.

When the couple dances, I always like to incorporate the guests looking on. The Bride's sister on the left is wiping away at tears and the groomsmen on the right are huddled in excitement looking on.

I'm a mom of three boys. I hope I can look that happy and radiant at each of their weddings someday.
