A Winter Engagement | Massachusetts Wedding Photographer | Moore State Park| Paxton MA | Haley and AJ

What a winter wonderland we have had this season, and it seems like it's still coming! Haley and AJ met while he was coaching hockey, and she was teaching ice skating. The perfect setting for them was an engagement session after the most perfect snowfall on a frozen pond (don't worry, we made sure it was safe)! When they asked to bring along their adorable Beagle pup as well, I just couldn't be more excited! Despite some frozen toes, we had an absolute blast and I felt like we had known each other for years. Oakey definitely stole the show for a while, and left a few kisses on my camera, he was such a sweetie!

Now it's story time! All of us pretty cold, I finished the ring shots and we went to say goodbye. Yet my car had somehow decided to automatically lock itself when I walked away (leaving the keys on the backseat as I just took my camera to photograph the ring!) leaving me very embarrassed! Well, Haley and AJ refused to let me freeze alone while the guy came to unlock me door, and we had a good hour and a half to bond, warming up in their car, and talk about wedding plans and how badly we all wanted pizza and beer! This was definitely one of my most embarrassing career moments, but I couldn't have asked for sweeter people to spend time with. We are all human and life happens (however, if this happened on a wedding day and I was without camera, don't doubt I wouldn't be breaking my window haha). They even still decided afterward that we had so much fun that they wanted me to photograph their big day in September as well! These two are awesome, I can't wait for their wedding day!

Rhode Island and Connecticut Maternity Photographer | Snowy Maternity Session | Erika and Jason

There's nothing better than a spur of the moment session when the first snowfall of winter arrives in New England! We had been planning Erika and Jason's maternity session at the tree farm for the weekend after, but since an early season snow was predicted, Erika had the awesome idea to move up a week and shoot in the snow since it would probably be gone soon. We both had the morning free, and met at Geer Tree Farm in Griswold. I love the smell of Christmas trees, the hustle and bustle of families coming together to decorate, and the happy vibe of the holidays. Especially with the new fallen snow! A magical maternity session! Congratulations Erika and Jason, on the new addition to your family!

Rhode Island Ballet Photographer | Providence RI | Hannah

If there's anything I love photographing as much as my lovely couples, it's ballerinas and dancers! Some dancers just have that magical quality. Every movement and line is musical and effortless, every emotion though out but impromptu. It was truly an honor to photograph Hannah doing what she loves!

Rhode Island Engagement Photographer | Providence Public Library | Katie and Tai

Originally we were supposed to do our session outside, but our unpredictable New England weather brought snow and cold! Katie had the great idea to to moving inside to the Providence Public Library where it was nice and warm and they could show off their adorable outfits. I'm a total reading and book nerd, so doing a session in a library, especially as gorgeous as this, was right up my alley!

Moore State Park Engagement | Boston Wedding Photographer | Jenna and Ethan

I absolutely love how adventurous Jenna and Ethan are! Not only did they choose a gorgeous location for their Fall engagement session, and dress to a T, but they love hiking and doing things outdoors and had not problem galavanting through the woods with me. I even got a little lost at first because I haven't been to this park in a few years and totally got thrown off! However walking through the woods in a gown and a suite did not phase these two and we had a great time. I can't wait for their wedding in 2018 and to capture more of their moments! Congratulations Jenna and Ethan!

A Westerly Wedding | RI Wedding Photographer | Michelle and Brian

I met Michelle last Halloween when I started a new freelance graphic design job and we bonded almost instantly over our complete and utter obsession with Harry Potter. When I say fans, we are some special kind of fans! When I went to the Wizarding World in March for the first time, I legitimately CRIED upon entering Diagon Alley! On top of that, she was super excited because she was engaged and planning her wedding for 2017 (You can see their adorable engagement session here)! Unfortunately for business Alicia, she already had a wedding photographer booked, but still wanted to do engagement photos with us, and we were guests at her big day full of Harry Potter details (wait until you see the card Brian made Michelle that looks like the Marauders Map!) and I got to shoot the two of them getting ready! Thank you for having me be a part of your magical day, Michelle and Brian! Mischeif Managed!

Rhode Island Ballet Photographer | Providence RI | Katy

Ballet and dance has had my heart since I was a little girl who refused to take off her first performance tutu twirling to "Animal Crackers in my Soup", which my mom still has on VHS. I never pass up a chance to take ballet class even as an adult (that's a whole seperate blog!), or photograph!

We began at one of my favorite spots in Providence, The Temple of Music at Roger Williams Park. Not only does the temple have a beautiful backdrop, but the marble floor gives a nice and slip-free texture to dance on. Unfortunately the main part of the structure is undergoing some restorative construction so we had to utilize a tiny area in the back corner of the temple. 

Thank you so much Katy for letting me combine two of the things I love at this wonderful shoot, and congratulations on your upcoming roles in the Nutcracker with Spindle City Ballet!

Magical Peter Pan Maternity Portraits | Rhode Island Portrait Photographer

When Jenny told me her vision for her maternity session was a magical Peter Pan inspired adventure, I knew it was right up my alley and was flooded with ideas! We went to one of my favorite locations in Warwick where the light is just gorgeous and magic is in the air. We incorporated some fun props and a little bit of magic and a little treat of some Dells Lemonade and made the vision of the magic of motherhood come to life!

Cozy Home Engagement Session | Victoria and Brandon

There's no place like home, home is where the heart is, you always lead me back home...there are a million sayings that revolve around love and being home with your family. Victoria and Brandon spent so much time and love on renovating their beautiful home that they couldn't think of a better place to share their engagement session! From all of the charming details, including a super sweet sparkley wedding count down (which has since lost some numbers!) they were perfectly at home and proud of their hard work. Thank you for inviting me into your home Victoria and Brandon, I can't wait to capture your wedding next year!

Boston Wedding Photographer | Eric and Jeremy's Fourth of July Wedding at the Arnold Arboretum

There's no better way to celebrate the holiday known for it's fireworks than with a wedding! On a hot (I mean HOT! it was over 90 degrees!) summer day, Eric and Jeremy had a small and tight-knit ceremony on top of Bussey Hill at the Arnold Arboretum in Boston. Surrounded by their tight-knit group of family and friends, and their too cute for words ring bearer a puggle named Stewie, they made a meaningful journey to the top of the hill to recite their vows. I love intimate weddings because I feel like I leave with a group of new friends, and had a blast at the funky south end restaurant Cinquecento for cocktail hour! Congrats again Eric and Jeremy, wishing you a lifetime of happiness and fireworks!

xx,
Alicia

Bridal Styled Shoot | New England Wedding Photographer

Assembling a team of creative minds to partake in creating something beautiful is one of the best things about being a photographer! After finding the perfect place for a styled bridal shoot at Bancroft Castle in Worcester, Massachusetts, I knew it would only be perfect to enlist the help of my favorite model/ makeup artist Jenn Pierce, my friend Briel Delmonaco of Uniquely Chic Vintage Rentals (http://uniquelychicvintage.com/), and assistant (and next bridal model) Samantha Bourbeau, to create the perfect romantic and early 1900's vibe. I've been wanting to shoot an Bancroft Castle for a very long time, since I saw how beautiful it was there, and between the gorgeous furniture from Uniquely Chic, lovely light, awesome location, and stunning flowers from The Flower Pot (http://www.theflowerpotri.com/) I'd say my first bridal shoot was a success and I can't wait for the next one coming up in August! A huge thank you to everyone who made this vision come to life!

Newport Engagement Session | Liz and Nick

On a windy and warm Spring day, I met Liz and Nick, dressed to the nines down at Sachuest Point. It was so hot that day, but was breezy and cool down by the water, and as soon as I met them I felt like we were old friends right away! Her center stone in her ring is also a family heirloom, that Nick had set in a gorgeous Tacori mounting, how sweet and special is that!? These two were up for a little walking adventure, as we stopped at some of my favorite places around the wildlife preserve. I've hiked here for years and always thought it would be a beautiful sunlit setting for couples portraits. 

Congrats on your engagement and your wonderful future ahead Liz and Nick!

Engagement Session in the Snow | Rhode Island Wedding and Engagement Photographer

This session was magical after one of our famous New England snow storms this past winter! I met Krista and Nichole through one of my second shooters and was excited to hear about their Fall wedding. I thought that using their Starbucks coffee mugs would add the perfect personal touch to their photos because that's how they met, and how cute are those mugs?! I believe every couple should have an engagement session, because it helps me get to know them while having some fun, and what part of throwing snowballs around and drinking coffee is not fun?!
