Kerry & Matt: Married, Towers Narragansett, RI

Monday, September 24th, 2012

Kerry and Matt were married a few weeks ago at Christ The King Church in Kingston, and they held their reception at the Towers in Narragansett. I started my day with Kerry and her family and bridesmaids, as my second shooter, Angie, hung around with Matt and the guys. After the ceremony, the entire bridal party and myself stopped at the Narragansett Rotary for a quick couple of pictures in front of the large “welcome-to-Narragansett” sign. We then made our way to the Towers for pictures with family, the bridal party, and finally just Kerry & Matt. The light was quickly fading as we went upstairs into the Towers for introductions, speeches, dinner, and dancing. The band, Those Guys, rocked as usual. I highly recommend them if you’re looking for a great band for your wedding!

Thanks Kerry & Matt for a great day! I always love being back at the Towers. It’s such a great spot!

Brooke & Marc: Married

Friday, September 21st, 2012

Brooke and Marc were married recently at Independence Harbor in Assonet, MA. I started my day in Acushnet at Brooke’s parent’s home and spent some time photographing Brooke, her bridesmaids and her three daughters before heading towards Independence Harbor. Immediately following the ceremony, we took some pictures against the picturesque background that the Independence Harbor is known for, and used the vintage car Brooke and her father rode in on for some more great images. Then we moved inside for dinner and dancing.

Thanks Brooke & Marc for having me – it was a great evening!

Corinne & Chris: Married, Eisenhower House, Newport

Tuesday, September 18th, 2012

Corinne & Chris were married a few weeks ago in Newport at St. Joseph’s Church and held their reception at the beautiful Eisenhower House, also in Newport. I started my day with Corinne at Hotel Viking before heading over to the church for the ceremony. After the ceremony, I hopped on the trolley and we made stops at some great spots for pictures along the route to the Eisenhower House. Once we arrived, the families gathered for pictures, and cocktail hour began. A Del’s cart was on hand for the refreshment of the guests. We all moved into the tent for introductions and toasts; then dinner was served. After dinner, the dance floor came alive and stayed that way all night.

Thanks Corinne and Chris – I had a blast!

And finally: Del’s brain freeze during cocktail hour. Poor kid won’t make the mistake of drinking a mouthful of Del’s quickly like that again.

Elizabeth & Kyle: Day After Session

Thursday, September 13th, 2012

I met Elizabeth years ago when I was first started to photograph more people. Then earlier this year, as she began planning her wedding, I received an email from her expressing interest in me photographing her wedding. Unfortunately, I was already booked on their wedding day. Instead, they decided to have me photograph a Day-After session, where Elizabeth would put her dress back on, and we’d walk around some areas at a more relaxed pace than we could on a wedding day.

I met up with Elizabeth and Kyle in downtown Providence and we around the city a bit. My friend, Dave Field, was in tow wrangling a light for me. We found some great spots, shot some fun pictures, and Elizabeth and Kyle enjoyed turning heads of many people in the city, some of whom didn’t quite believe that they were freshly married.

We headed up north for some more pictures outside city limits, where there’s a little more green around, to finish out our time together. I had a ton of fun shooting this, it was very different than the usual somewhat rushed portraits during a traditional wedding day. It allowed us to visit some interesting locations, and take a little more time making just the right picture. It was a blast!

Thanks guys, I hope you enjoy these images – I’m very proud of them!

Katelyn & Kevin: Married, Renaissance Hotel Providence

Thursday, September 6th, 2012

Katelyn and Kevin were married last weekend at St. Pius Church in Providence and held their reception at the Renaissance Hotel in Providence. I was privileged to have two second shooters with me for this wedding, Gabrielle & Matt of Gabrielle Marks Photography. Matt and I started our day hanging out with the ladies as they prepared to head towards the church. Gabrielle spent her time photographing the men in their hotel room at the Renaissance. After the ceremony, we walked through Waterplace Park in downtown Providence before ending up on the State House grounds just as the weather began to turn. Dark clouds rolled in just as we finished up with portraits. Inside, “Those Guys” rocked the stage as they kept guests dancing all night. It was a fantastic day, thanks Katelyn and Kevin for having me! And thanks also to Matt and Gabrielle for coming along for the ride. It was a blast!

Kim & Nate: Married, Popponesset Inn, Cape Cod

Monday, August 13th, 2012

Kim and Nate were married on Cape Cod on a beautiful summer day recently. Our day started and finished at the picturesque Popponesset Inn. I met the girls while they were getting ready, as my second photographer, the talented Trevor Holden hung around with the guys. The ceremony was held under the blue and white striped tent right on the beach, with views of the ocean all around. After the ceremony we went out to the beach for pictures with family and friends, then back inside for a night of music, dinner, and dancing. It was a great party! Everyone seemed to have a blast – I know I had a great time. Thanks Kim and Nate, for having me out to help document your big day! Congratulations!

Sammi & Dave: Married, Spring Valley Country Club

Saturday, July 21st, 2012

I spent the second half of last weekend with another great couple, Sammi & Dave. They were married at Spring Valley Country Club on another stifling hot July day! Luckily, most of the day was spent enjoying the air conditioning provided by the club. When we arrived, I met Sammi while my second photographer, Trevor, photographed the guys getting ready next door. The ceremony was set against a huge wall of windows that looked out over the manicured golf course outside. After the ceremony, I documented two complete families, then portraits of just Sammi and Dave, then it was back inside for introductions and their first dance. After dinner, Trevor and I took Sammi and Dave back outside for some pictures in the fading light. On our way back inside, we saw the fire pits had been lit up, and I took one of my favorite shots of the day. Later on, after dinner and some dancing, Sammi and Dave retreated outside to mingle with their guests and enjoy a cigar. What a way to end a perfect day!

Finally, I’m always staying on the lookout for my future competition! He’s got that determination in his eyes, can’t you see it?

Thanks, Sammi and Dave, you guys were great! These are just some of my favorites from your day!

Colleen & Marc: Married

Tuesday, July 17th, 2012

Colleen and Marc were married last weekend at St. Michael’s Church in Hudson, MA and held their reception at the DoubleTree Hotel in Westborough. Dave and I started our day at the hotel, where I photographed the ladies in the bridal suite while Dave photographed the men before heading over to the church. A short trolley ride over to St. Michael’s Church, where Colleen walked down the isle in front of her friends and family.

After the ceremony we headed back to the DoubleTree Hotel where guests enjoyed cocktails on the patio while we finished up formal pictures. Then it was inside to the ballroom for introductions, dinner, and dancing all night!

Colleen and Marc – you guys were great, thanks for having me along for the ride! Congratulations!

Holly & Mike: Married, North Beach Clubhouse, Narragansett

Thursday, July 12th, 2012

I won’t be forgetting Holly and Mike’s wedding anniversary anytime soon. Their wedding date, 7/7/12, also happens to be the date my second son was born. I called Holly the day before her wedding to let her know that I was making arrangements to have another photographer stand in for me should I be tied up, as my wife was going into labor. Holly was great – her understanding of the situation was comforting – she said to do what I needed to do. I phoned my good friend, Dave Field, asking if he’d mind standing in for me should I not be able to be there – thankfully he was on board. My son Samuel was born at 5:30am that day. I did end up making it down to Holly and Mike’s wedding, even if my stay was a bit short due to lack of sleeping the night before and the need to get back to the hospital to be there for my wife and baby. I had Dave make the trip down to Narragansett to be certain I could still give Holly and Mike the images they wanted. Dave and Trevor finished the night out on my behalf; they did a wonderful job at capturing the fun that continued after my departure.

Holly and Mike are a great couple, completely giddy for each other! I had a ton of fun photographing their engagement session, so I knew their big day was going to be great! It was held at the North Beach Clubhouse, just north of Narragansett Beach. The day called for thunderstorms in the afternoon, but the clouds stayed wispy and the storms held off. The ceremony was right on the beach, overlooking crashing waves and a handful of surfers. We took advantage of the beautiful evening light for pictures, then Holly and Mike returned to mingle with their guests, enjoy cocktails and hors d’oeuvres, and dance the night away! They capped off the evening with fireworks and sparklers on the beach!

Thanks Holly and Mike, for having me there to help celebrate your big day, and also a big thanks to Dave and Trevor for helping me out!
