Jesse & Ben: Engaged

Tuesday, July 5th, 2011

I spent some time last week with Jesse and Ben at Goddard Park in Warwick. Earlier this year I had the pleasure of photographing her aunt Sarah’s wedding in Barrington, RI. Jesse and Ben are getting married this August down in Narragansett. We had a beautiful summer evening to work with, and I think we took some great images. Goddard Park offers so many different shooting locations within its’ gates. It’s really a fantastic spot to photograph. I’m really looking forward to Jesse & Ben’s wedding later this summer at the Kinney Bungalow. They are a ton of fun – and I think it’s going to be a great day.

Mike & April: Engaged

Friday, June 10th, 2011

Below: My favorite!

I spent a little time the other day out and about in Providence with a friend and fellow wedding photographer, Mike. I photographed him and his lovely fiance, April on a beautiful afternoon last week. We started in Roger Williams Park then travelled up to India Point in Providence to take some sunset shots. I had a great time – it’s both fun and nerve-wracking photographing another photographer.

These are a few of my favorites from the evening. Thanks, Mike and April!

Kim & Nate: Engaged

Tuesday, May 31st, 2011

Below: My favorite of the day!

Below: A second favorite!

What a fun couple to work with! I’m already looking forward to Kim and Nate’s 2012 wedding! As much as they say that they’re not, Kim and Nate are both very photogenic; I had no trouble capturing some great moments between the two of them. I traveled up to Hampton Beach, NH for their engagement shoot a few days ago, and we were treated to beautiful late-afternoon light. Having never been to Hampton Beach, it was fun for me to explore the beach, boardwalk, and honky-tonk store fronts that the town has to offer. We roamed the streets and found some gorgeous light, then returned back to Kim’s grandparents home for some sunset images.

Thanks for showing me around Hampton Beach, guys! Enjoy these images – I had a lot of fun making them.

Ashley & Kyle: Engaged

Wednesday, May 18th, 2011

The Spring is such a great time to shoot your engagement session. The grass looks great, the trees are flowering, and the temperatures are generally reasonable. Last week, I met Ashley and Kyle at The University of Rhode Island for a fun engagement session, where we walked all around campus and took advantage of all the great backdrops it has to offer. Later, we drove down to a little beach hidden away in Narragansett.

Spending the time that I did with Ashley and Kyle just reinforces the fact that their wedding this July is going to be a ton of fun! They’re a fun loving couple, and I’m really looking forward to being a part of their big day in a few months.

Erin & Dan: Engaged

Saturday, April 23rd, 2011

So it was windy, cold, dark, and threatening to rain at any moment.  Who says that isn’t perfect weather for an engagement shoot?  After seeing how these turned out, not I. Mother Nature was set on ruining the day, but Erin and Dan made the best of the early spring weather. They made a great choice in picking Purgatory Chasm as the setting for their engagement shoot. The contrast of the light green against the steel grey sky and rocks was perfect to frame the couple in.

I had a great time exploring the rocks and woods with them! Here are a few images that I liked!

The Anytime Session

Monday, February 28th, 2011

I spend a lot of time each year documenting weddings, newly engaged couples, and families. It’s what I do. I have recently noticed that I haven’t yet photographed a couple, NOT recently engaged or married, or NOT with several children just outside the frame pulling them in different directions. Yes, I always remember to take a couple of pictures of mom and dad during family sessions, because I think that it’s important to have at least one great picture of just them without the kids, but the reality of it is, the kids are usually causing trouble nearby and mom and dad struggle to smile for one one-hundredth of a second before Johnny pulls Sally’s hair and she squeals, attracting the worried attention of passers-by.

For all you married couples out there: How many times since your wedding day (how many years ago was that, again?) have you been photographed, professionally, without the kids, for no other reason than to get some updated, professional images of just the two of you?

That’s what I thought. And I’m guilty of the very same thing. (And yes, I plan to do something about that soon)

The Anytime Session is just what you and your significant other need – the weather is on the brink of turning to warmer days, and there’s no time like the present to have your picture taken for no other reasons than the ones stated above. It’s good for the two of you. Make an afternoon out of it: Hire a babysitter and go out for a nice dinner after the session. It’ll be fun. I promise.

The Anytime Session isn’t unlike my engagement sessions. It’s relaxed and casual, not overly posed with cheesy, fake smiles. It’s about the two of you, not your relationship with my camera. Ideally it would take place at a location that’s meaningful to you as a couple, but great sessions can happen just about anywhere.

Whether you’ve been married for just a few years, or you’re pushing a a few decades, call me to schedule your Anytime Session, and finally have some images of the two of you worth putting on the walls!

Tracy & Chris: Engaged

Wednesday, December 1st, 2010

I traveled up to Boston for my last engagement session of the year. I met Tracy and Chris at the Boston Common on a very windy day-before-thanksgiving. I had such a fun time walking around the park, as well as exploring some of the Beacon Hill neighborhood. We found such cool places to duck out of the wind and cold. That area provides some amazing backdrops for pictures! Here’s just a few of my favorites from the afternoon.

We’ll end this post with a few funny ones. We were shooting in an tiny alley in Beacon Hill and found this tiny door. We thought it’d be fun to cram them right in there and take an offbeat picture.

Secondly, on our last shot of the day, we tried something a little different. I tried to get a few ‘zoolander’ poses out of Tracy and Chris. It seems, however, that they couldn’t both keep a straight face at the same time. Here, Chris is cracking up, while Tracy rocks the model pose.

Thanks for being such good sports, guys! Looking forward to next summer!

Brianne & John: Engaged

Thursday, September 30th, 2010

Brianne and John are getting married on Cape Cod next spring and we recently spent some time wandering Newport for their engagement session. It was the third time we rescheduled due to rain – I’m glad we finally got to do the session. They were a lot of fun – and i’m really looking forward to their wedding next year. I love the Cape in the spring! Thanks Brianne and John!

Stephanie & Nick: Engaged

Wednesday, September 29th, 2010

Thanks guys for running all the way up there for the above picture! I think it came out great!

How cool is the light coming through the tunnel in the above image?

(I love the above image – It’s not a typical engagement picture – but more of a fun one)

Stephanie and Nick took the drive from North Central Massachusetts into Providence the other day for an engagement session. I know Stephanie from way back, from our days at Fitchburg State College. She and Nick are getting married next year.

We explored the city, as I normally do with engagement sessions, with no real agenda, only a starting and finishing point. It makes for new imagery even in places I photograph often. I planned the afternoon in such a way so we’d finish near Trinity Brewhouse. Nick is a beer buff, as am I, and what better place to unwind after finishing an e-session than over a pint (or two) at a fantastic local brewpub. I had to show the out of town guests some RI hospitality!

Thanks Stephanie and Nick for making the trip down to Providence for your engagement session. I hope you had as much fun as I did!

Jenna & Brian: Engaged

Tuesday, September 14th, 2010

Here’s a few of my favorite images from last week’s engagement session with Jenna & Brian. They’re getting married next year, and will be having their reception at the Aldrich Mansion in Warwick. I couldn’t be more excited! We started out at Newport Vineyard which is a fantastic little vineyard on Aquidneck Island. It had an abundance of ripening vines to photograph in and around. We took the short drive down the beach after we finished up at the vineyard for some more shots approaching what would have been sunset. The clouds were dark and stormy looking the entire session though, but the sprinkles held off until we pulled out of the parking lot when the session was finished. I had such a good time with Jenna and Brian, and I can’t wait to photograph their big day next year!
