Keighley & Peter: Married

Wednesday, November 28th, 2012

Keighley and Peter’s wedding day was fantastic!  As is always the case with late season New England weddings, we were worried about temperatures dipping but we truly lucked out as the sunshine beamed down and it was just a little chilly for the big day.  My second shooter, Dave and I arrived that morning to meet up with Keighley and Peter at the Newport Hyatt.  I went to meet with Keighley while Dave, went off to meet with the guys.  It’s safe to say that both the bride and groom were nervous and filled with about all the anticipation they could handle! The wedding ceremony was held at Kay Chapel in Newport.  As pretty as the chapel is by itself, things got a lot more romantic for their processional when the bag piper started to play!

After the ceremony we made our way toward Quidnessett Country Club for the reception.  We made a stop at the Wickford waterfront for some formals and Keighley and Peter’s limo driver even rolled out the red carpet for us, literally!  We had fun posing around the docks and it was a nice time for Keighley and Peter to shake off the wedding jitters and get ready for the reception to come.  We managed to beat the early sunset and get outside for some pictures at Quidnessett.  Then came the introductions and some very nice speeches. Rick from Arpeggio Wedding Entertainment did his usual great job of keeping the music going. It was a great day, thanks for having me along!

Mona & Ben: Engaged

Friday, November 9th, 2012

I met Mona and Ben up in Boston the afternoon before Sandy blew through town. The weather was starting to deteriorate, but we moved quickly and dodged raindrops as we photographed the session. We spent some time inside The New England College of Optometry, where Mona & Ben met in class, years ago. Now with careers, they returned back to shoot some pictures inside the classrooms, library, and common areas that they spent time in when they were in school.

Thanks, Mona & Ben for showing me around your school – it’s a beautiful building, inside and out. I had a blast! Thanks!

Caitlin & Dan: Married

Wednesday, November 7th, 2012

Caitlin and Dan were married at Ocean Edge on Cape Cod a few weeks ago. It was a gorgeous October afternoon, the sun was shining and the temperatures were perfect. I met Caitlin upstairs where her and the girls were finishing up their hair and makeup. I photographed the preparations before heading out to the mansion’s front lawn for the ceremony. After the ceremony, we took some pictures outside the mansion, then headed down towards the water for some sunset pictures. We arrived back just as cocktail hour was finishing up, and the bridal party lined up for introductions. The bridal party was announced, but before Caitlin & Dan were introduced, the doors opened and Pat the Patriot appeared and pumped up the audience a bit before the bride and groom were finally introduced to loud cheering.

Dinner was served, and the party started! I had a great time at your wedding, Caitlin & Dan – thanks for having me along!

Jess & Matt: Engaged

Monday, November 5th, 2012

I traveled to Hoboken New Jersey a few weeks ago to photograph Jess & Matt’s engagement session. I met them in their neighborhood and we walked around the city a little bit and shot some fun images. Jess and Matt are getting married next year back in RI, but I was in the area for a trade-show and we decided to meet and shoot the session in Hoboken. It was fun walking around a new city looking for great images! These are just a few of my favorites from the afternoon!

Thanks Jess & Matt for taking the time to hang out for a bit – and thanks for the refreshing beer afterwards!
