Roseland Park Woodstock Connecticut Wedding | Rhode Island Wedding Photographer | Amber + Donald

On the shores of Roseland Lake in Woodstock, Connecticut on the perfect Fall day, with a reception in an adorable barn decked with sunflowers and the most amazing barbecue I have ever tasted, Amber and Donald said I do! As a New England girl, I’m a total fan of barn weddings and country music. Fall is my favorite season and when the leaves start changing I’m ready to go hiking and take my yearly trip to New Hampshire.

Amber glowed with excitement in her gorgeous flowing gown, perfect flower crown and rose gold halo custom made ring. After sharing a “faux” first look around the corner of the red barn, seeing the look on Donald’s face as his bride made her way down the aisle on the arms of her parents was priceless. The generations of family and great grandparents there to witness their marriage just made this wedding all the more perfect. Congratulations Amber and Donald, I wish you many more adventures as you share a life of love!

Wachusett Country Club Wedding | Massachusetts Wedding Photographer | Jenna + Ethan

From the moment I met Jenna + Ethan at their consultation I knew this couple was special! Not only had they been together since they were young (the pictures displayed at their wedding were so cute!) but they just had the most adorable connection. Their engagement session was one of my favorites to date, a rustic Fall session full of snuggles and glamour because these two brought the fashion! You can see that session on the blog by clicking here! You might see some familiar faces from previous weddings and engagement sessions in this blog too, because this wedding was full of friends and love. Wachusett Country Club was the perfect setting, with rolling green fields and trees, and a gorgeous sunlit day. The thing I love most about weddings is being involved in a couples story and having an impact on creating an heirloom of their marriage. I was nearly brought to tears (ok this happens at most weddings because I LOVE my couples!) by the sentiment behind the speeches by family and friends. Congratulations Jenna + Ethan, you guys rock!

The Bohlin Newport Wedding | Cassi + Mike | Rhode Island Wedding Photographer

On the lovliest of June days, Cassi and Mike tied the knot at Holy Name Church in New Bedford, followed by a seaside reception at The Bohlin in Newport! What better backdrop for a wedding than views of the Newport Bridge and harbor, as well as the feeling of love in the air. The way Mike looked at Cassi all day, the tears of joy, and the beautiful connections between family and friends are what makes weddings so special. From the florals by Carlone's, the amazing looking cake, and the sparkly details of the table numbers, this is sure to be one happily ever after! I was excited to work with Peter and his team from Amylon Productions, they were so considerate and easy to team up with for those must have shots!

Congratulations Cassi and Mike!

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!

The Haversham Wedding | Michelle + Brian | Rhode Island Wedding Photographer

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!

Engaged! Now what?! 5 Tips for Starting to Plan Your Wedding | Rhode Island Wedding Photographer

Rhode Island Engagement Photography

The love of your life proposed, you said yes! Congratulations! This is one of the biggest moments in your lives, and a reason to celebrate. You will feel excited and maybe a little anxious as you think about planning your wedding. There are so many resources out there to help with your planning, but where do you begin? As a wedding photographer I often talk to brides about much more than just photography. It’s almost like we become such good friends that photographing their wedding seems more like just being an honored guest that gets to capture it all, and I’m always down to bring you a coffee to your bridal suite!

1.) Get Organized
I love buying all kinds of fun notebooks and folders, especially the ones with pretty designs and typography on them. It helps to have a folder with receipts, print outs, and things you rip out of magazines for inspiration all in one place. Notebooks are handy as well to write down ideas of anything that you want to remember to do.

2.) Plan a budget and stick to it
Next, you want to do is sit down together and plan how much you want to spend on your wedding in total. Keep everything in mind from venue, to dresses and suits, to décor. Also keep in mind if you want to include the cost of your rings (including the engagement ring) in this budget. Try your best to stick to this because the last thing you want to do it start your marriage with an enormous amount of debt over your head as newlyweds and being stressed about it.

3.) Venue Search
Before you book anything else you need to nail down your venue and date. This in itself can take a lot of time, but the best research can start online. Many sites like The Knot (www.theknot.com) and Wedding Wire (www.weddingwire.com) have reviews by real brides on their venue and vendor sites, as well as cost (stick to that budget!), and loads of pictures so you can think of décor and what you want your theme to be. Don’t worry if you don’t have or want a theme, your theme could always just be pretty wedding! Make sure you see your venues in person, speak to the coordinators, read the contracts and find out all the details. Now would also be a good time to hire your wedding planner if you are using one and they will take care of all the fine print for you. Think of how you want your photographs from your day to look while choosing your venue. If you love bright and airy images, don’t choose a place with no windows and dark wooden walls, floors and ceilings.  Time of day matters as well, here in New England it’s not the best idea to have a 4:00 wedding in December with no first look if you want bright and well lit portraits after the wedding since it will be dark.

4.) Choose Your Bridal PartyOne of the greatest things about planning your special day is planning to share it with your closest friends. Both of your should choose your bridal party and think of a color theme that will be present in the décor and bridal party outfits. You can even ask friends to be a part of your bridal party with hand lettered cards and homemade gifts to add a special touch to it. Do some searches online to get some great ideas for some crafty fun, and start to imagine what your wedding day will look like!

5.) Dresses and InvitationsNow that your date and bridal party are set, you can shop for your dress and the dresses for the ladies! This is such an exciting and special day to share with your closest family and friends.  Start looking for invitation designs at this time or hire a designer. Etsy (www.etsy.com) and Minted (www.minted.com) are really great resources for finding some beautiful invitations.

Now get ready to plan your big day! Get organized, set your budget, research and book your dream venue, gather your friends, say yes to the dress, and send those save the dates. Planning a wedding should be exciting and fun but is no doubt going to get a little stressful at times. The best advice I can give you is to enjoy the process. If things don’t go as planned, step back, take a breather and remember to enjoy planning your day together. It will all come together, and any issues can be overcome. Ready?! Go!

Rhode Island and Massachusetts Wedding Photographer | Narragansett Engagement Session | Kristin and John

Wedding Photography in RI, MA and CT

Engagement Session

I've always wanted to do a shoot in this gorgeous patch of open space in Narragansett right next to Narrow River. So when Kristin and John decided to do an engagement session I knew it would be the perfect place. One, because it's beautiful and near the beach, and two, because there is river access where these two paddle board all the time and they wanted to incorporate their favorite pastime (and how he proposed!) into their session. Perfection! The light was gorgeous just as I expected and it was so difficult narrowing it down to my favorites. Next up will be their wedding!
