I spent a few days in Maine this past week to take part in a photography networking and shooting event. It’s always great to step out of your normal day-to-day routine to try something new and different. A couple of willing models joined us for the afternoon and helped produce some great images. We took some engagement style images:

Julia and Nick were married in Bristol, Rhode Island last week. The day was great; hot and humid, but great. The weather held and we were treated to beautifully warm light just before the sun went below the horizon. The reception was held at Lindon Place in Bristol, a great venue for a classy summer wedding.
I wanted to share a few images from a recent wedding down in East Greenwich, RI. Jen and Chris were married and celebrated at a beach side home overlooking Narragansett Bay. It was a beautiful day for a wedding, the weather cooperated nicely and the bay breezes were refreshing. They served a great dinner of pulled pork, beef brisket, corn-on-the-cob, and pecan pie! My kind of menu! Thanks Jen and Chris for allowing me to be a part of your day!
Ferah, a friend of mine from college days, and her fiance, Nate, spent the weekend with us and while they were here, took a few minutes to run around Providence and take some amazing pictures. We were on our way to Trinity Brewhouse for dinner, so we kept the session short, but with a city like Providence that has so many great spots to shoot, it was easy to get several different locations within a few block radius.
They are naturals in front of the camera, and I can’t wait to shoot their wedding next fall up in Maine. It’s going to be great! Thanks so much, both of you, for a great session!
I had the pleasure of photographing two local seniors on a recent overcast afternoon. The rain held out just long enough, allowing us time to finish out shoot before the sprinkles starting coming down. These girls are best of friends and wanted a few pictures together as well as the ones we took with each singly. Thanks so much girls – for a great shoot!
I’ve just signed up to attend a great wedding photography conference this January in Mystic, Connecticut. I’m excited to see some of the photography greats, including Joe McNally who has shot for National Geographic, LIFE Magazine, and Sports Illustrated to name a few. In addition to the speaking, it’s a time for networking with fellow photographers for all to share ideas that help build a community of wedding photographers. I’m really looking forward to this event.

Here are just a few images from an engagement session from Newport a couple weeks back. We started along Bellevue Avenue, near the mansions, and finished over by Castle Hill Lighthouse just around Brenton Point. It was a beautiful day for pictures, although I somehow managed to get myself quite the sunburn on my neck and face. I’ll be sure and use sunscreen next time I’m out on such a crystal clear, sunny day. Thanks guys for being such a great couple, I can’t wait to shoot your wedding!
I’ve had the pleasure over the past couple of weeks to photograph a great Portuguese band based out of the Rhode Island area called Destino. I caught up with them the other night for a great session in downtown Providence with a stop in the down-city area, and then over to the waterfront. These guys are great – a real tight band with great music. I’ve always had a love of live music of any sort. I can’t even hold it against them that I can’t understand the words that they sing; their music is great. Maybe they’ll release a special album for us non-Portuguese speakers someday. They recently rocked a cool outdoor festival in Providence complete with dancing and amazing smelling food all around. Thanks a ton, guys (and girl!) for a couple of great performances and thanks for rockin’ the portrait session! Best of luck to you!
