Jillian and Ryan were married last week in the Old Buttonwoods section of Warwick. The fabulous weather, great people and cozy location of Buttonwoods in Warwick made for some fantastic images! From getting ready to the reception’s end, the energy was high. The high point was the purpose of the day; the wedding! The bridal party’s entrance to Coldplay set the tone for the highly spiritual experience for guests and the happy couple alike. After the nuptials, we made our way down to the water overlooking the bay. We got some great images of the wedding party amidst the ocean breeze and ultra green grass then we moved on to the reception at the Casino. Dancing, indoor bowling and that old New England charm that Old Buttonwoods embodies, made for great images and a great night! Thanks Jillian and Ryan – these are some of my many favorites from your big day!

Joan and Mike were married on a gorgeous Sunday afternoon a few weeks back in one of RI’s best spots, Newport. It was a perfectly sunny day after most of the crowds had returned home, which is the best time to visit Newport in my opinion. Joan and Mike got ready at their Middletown home before heading down to Third Beach for some portraits. Then it was over to the Atlantic Beach Club for the ceremony, cocktails, and reception. These are a few of my favorites from the afternoon. Thanks Joan and Mike for having me at your wedding!
Below: Just a fun little series of four images
This past week I spent a couple of hours hanging out with Seth Jacobson and Kelly Meyer, two talented local photographers. Kelly was actually on the other side of the lens that evening, standing in for images that were a little different than the ones I normally photograph. We set out with a couple of lights and location in mind and simply wanted to make some cool photographs. The images we ended up with are simple and fun, and will hopefully give Kelly some great new Facebook profile pictures to choose from.
Below is a shot Seth took while i was working with Kelly on a shot. Thanks, Seth and Kelly for a fun evening! Let’s do it again soon.
I met Katey and Darrin at their Newport home last week for their engagement session. We started by exploring the streets around their house, then drove over to the Salve Regina campus where they met, and finally finished at Castle Hill Lighthouse around sunset. It was the second try for the engagement shoot – we had to reschedule due to rain the first time. I’m glad we waited – because the photographs came out great – especially the ones at sunset! Katey and Darrin are getting married next year at Oceancliff Hotel in Newport. Katey and Darrin are friends of Holly and Mike who I photographed a few months back in Narragansett (Thanks for the referral!)
These are a few of my favorites shots – what a great couple! I’m looking forward to next year!
It felt like just the other day that I spent some time with Traci & Tip shooting their engagement session.
Traci & Tip were married a few weeks back in Norwich, CT. They started their day back at Foxwoods, just a few floors apart. When I met Traci that morning, the suite was buzzing with activity – hair, makeup, dresses, champagne – it was all there. My second shooter, Robyn, spent some time with the guys capturing the antics on their floor. Once everyone was ready, they boarded the trolley headed towards the Cathedral of St. Patrick. The service was grand and the cathedral was immense. Traci & Tip greeted their guests outside afterwards then headed back to start pictures and their reception at Lake of Isles Golf Course at Foxwoods.
It was my second time photographing at Lake of Isles; I hope I’m able to shoot there more because it’s a wonderful place to photograph. After formals and cocktails, we went inside for dinner and dancing with music by the Newport, RI based band, Those Guys. It was a fantastic evening – and I was thrilled to be a part of it. Thanks, guys! Enjoy the teasers, your gallery will be up soon!
Nothing like some romantic portraits in the downstairs bar area!

Erin & Dan were married a few weeks ago in nearby Uxbridge, Massachusetts. It wasn’t the best of days weather-wise, but the weather didn’t seem to bring Erin and Dan down in the least. It was a day full of love and celebration that no amount of rain could have brought down this party!
I had such a fun time hanging out with them on their wedding day – I love brides that don’t let a little rain get them down. These are a few of my favorites from their wedding day – Enjoy!
