The Dorrance Wedding Providence | Rhode Island Wedding Photographer | Melissa + Charlie

When Pringles are passed around to guests at a wedding, joyfully erupting with laughter during a speech, you know there is a good story behind it!

I met Melissa when we worked together in corporate and became lunch buddies and friends. Melissa and Charlie moved to Rhode Island from New York City for work and to start their lives close to his family. Before they met, Charlie was infamously dubbed the “Snackman of NYC” after breaking up a subway fight without violence, hence the Pringles!

The timeless elegance of The Dorrance, and Melissa’s classic beauty and family heirloom ring made this wedding a timeless affair. After sharing a first look outside, we headed over the the Arcade for family portraits and into an alleyway Melissa found full of rusted metal beams and graffiti! When I say I go anywhere for my couples I mean it, so amazing alleyway it was!

Congratulations Melissa and Charlie! I’m so glad we became friends and I wish you both the happiest of ever afters!

Newport Cliff Walk and Fort Adams Engagement Session | Heather and Connor | Rhode Island Engagement Photography

This was an engagement session I was looking forward to for a while! Ever since I met Heather and Connor earlier this year I knew we were going to have a great time together. They are fun, adventurous and love beautiful locations. Newport is always one of my favorite places for sessions, especially by the Cliff Walk. There are so many beautiful places along the ocean and behind the mansions that photograph beautifully and are bright and beautiful! I feel like I’ve stepped right into Downton Abbey! After the Cliff Walk we headed over to Fort Adams for a change of seaside scenery, to explore by the piers, and catch that iconic Newport Bridge sunset! Congratulations Heather and Connor, I can’t wait for your Lake Pearl wedding next year!

I was completely honored when Megan, one of my college professors, asked me to photograph her wedding in August! The ceremony was held at St Lukes in Westborough, Massachusetts, one of the cutest towns I have ever seen. The reception was held out of state later so I didn't cover it, but had a great time capturing this adorable couples I Do's!

Rhode Island Maternity Photography | Katie

I've known Katie for quite a few years, as a fellow dance instructor. When she found out she was pregnant I was overjoyed for her and her boyfriend Jay. Tragically, Jay was killed in a motorcycle accident a few weeks later, but his legacy will live on in this beautiful baby girl who came into the world a week ago, and the feeling that he is watching over them is very strong.
