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!

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!

Jackie & Jay: Engaged

Tuesday, October 9th, 2012

I met Jackie & Jay near Boston last week ago for their engagement session. It started as a rainy day, but the skies brightened as we worked our way through, and finally ended up being pretty nice as we finished out the session. We started with a few frames with their puppy, then explored the neighborhood and surrounding areas a bit. We hit some some fun spots that I’m sure I’ll never be back to shoot again. Did you know that the roof of the Somerville City Hall has unbeatable views of the Boston skyline? I do now!

Thanks Jackie & Jay for showing me around a bit last week! I’m looking forward to your wedding next year!

Jennifer & Andrew: Engaged

Friday, August 31st, 2012

Jennifer and Andrew are getting married in October in Jamestown, RI. We met last week in Jamestown on a gorgeous late summer evening to shoot their engagement session. We started right downtown at the marina, and walked up the main street ducking into alleys and ‘borrowing’ a few folks front steps. We made a quick stop at Mackeral Cove before heading out to Beavertail to finish up the session. It was great getting to know Jennifer and Andrew a little bit better – and made me even more excited for their upcoming wedding!

Thanks for taking time out of your week to hang out for a bit! Enjoy the pics!

…and when Mom shows up at the end of the engagement session? I put her to work holding a light stand in the wind!

Liz & Eric: Engaged

Tuesday, August 7th, 2012

I met Liz and Eric on a gorgeous summer evening in Northern Rhode Island for their engagement session. It took a few tries though, we had weather delays and a new baby on my end that pushed their session back a few times. But we finally did it, and it was the perfect day!

Liz and Eric are a super easy-going couple and they’re getting married on Block Island later this season, which I’m very excited about!

Caitlin & Dan: Engaged

Thursday, July 26th, 2012

I met Caitlin and Dan earlier this week in Walpole, MA to photograph their engagement session. They’re getting married later this year at Ocean Edge,¬†on Cape Cod. I had a great time with them. I got to meet their three dogs; we were able to get all three dogs looking at the camera (as well as Cait & Dan!) for a ‘family’ picture. We then went to a picturesque city park for the rest of the session. I had a lot of fun – Caitlin and Dan are easy to be around and easy to photograph. It’s going to be a great wedding day! Thanks for having me up, guys!

Traci & Devin: Engaged

Wednesday, May 23rd, 2012

I met Traci & Devin last week at Goddard Park in East Greenwich to photograph their engagement session. I had not met either of them before, so I didn’t know who I was to meet. We got up to speed fast, and the session turned out great! Devin is in the Navy, which brought him and Traci to the Northeast. They’re getting married in a few weeks down in Connecticut. I had a great time – thanks for spending the time with me last week!

Finally, a cool shot of Traci and Devin seen as a reflection in the side of Devin’s black corvette.

Keighley & Peter: Engaged

Wednesday, May 23rd, 2012

I met Keighley and Peter at Beavertail Lighthouse a few weeks ago to photograph their engagement session. They were referred to me by my brother who sat next to Keighley on a flight back to Rhode Island several months ago. They struck up a conversation, my brother found out that she was planning a wedding and was in need of a photographer. He suggested that he might know of a good wedding photographer, and the rest is history.

I had a lot of fun checking out some of the rarely explored spots of Beavertail – did you know that there was a bit of an old fort still on the grounds? Thanks Peter and Keighley for hanging out for a bit!

Theresa & Christian: Engaged

Saturday, February 25th, 2012

I had the pleasure of spending some time with Theresa and Christian at Theresa’s alma mater, Salve Regina. We walked around the gorgeous Ochre Court building, then we went inside to explore and see what the interior had to offer. It’s such a grand building, and it’s really the perfect setting for an engagement session. I’m really looking forward to working with Theresa and Christian! Christian was actually a guest at a recent wedding, and a groomsman at another. Some of my best dancing pictures feature him. I’m looking forward to grabbing some new dancing shots with him as the groom. They are getting married in Fall River, Massachusetts and having their reception at the Westin in Providence.

Thanks, guys, for having me along! Enjoy the pictures!

Heather & Ross: Engaged

Saturday, February 18th, 2012

The snow was in the air last week as I met Heather and Ross in Narragansett to photograph their engagement session. It ended up just being flurries, but we were up for anything! We started at the rocks at the end of Newton Ave with the wind whipping off the water and the snowflakes swirling every direction around us. Heather and Ross did great despite the cold temps and the frigid wind off the water. Next stop was the Point Judith lighthouse where we used the jagged rocks as a backdrop for more pictures. We shot back towards the lighthouse from a nearby vantage point after that and ended up at Sand Hill Cove to finish off our time.

One of the reasons I love shooting engagement sessions is the way I get to connect a little bit with the couple to avoid any uncertainty on their wedding day – it’s tough to have a camera pointed in your face for that amount of time! If we can get some of that out of the way beforehand, it’s good for the images and it puts the couple at ease on their wedding day. Heather and Ross were instantly comfortable in front of my camera. It helps that I’ve known Heather for many years, but I think the real reason is that she and Ross are truly in love and weren’t afraid to show it during our session.

These are just a few of my favorites from their engagement session! Thanks Heather and Ross for spending some time with me last week! I’m looking forward to June!
