Vanessa and Shane | Cranston Wedding

Vanessa and Shane had their ceremony at St. Mary’s Church in Cranston, RI and their reception at The Chapel Grille, also in Cranston. It was a morning affair which was an interesting change of pace for us. It had a calmer tone to it and a totally different vibe than a night wedding. Guests had brunch and there was no dancing afterwards.

 

They shared a first look at Vanessa’s house after the getting ready was over. From there we headed off to the ceremony and then to the restaurant for their Cranston wedding. The brunch was filled with food and speeches from family and friends. Things wrapped up with enough time to get home and have dinner with our own families, which is not something that usually happens on wedding days!

 

Take a look at some highlights below:

 



Lesli and Jay | Lord Thompson Manor Wedding

Lesli and Jay had their wedding at Lord Thompson Manor in Thompson, Connecticut. Their wedding put Pinterest to shame. It was the most detailed and well decorated event I think we’ve had the opportunity of being at. Lesli was on top of everything, from the biggest detail to the smallest.

 

It was an added bonus that Lesli and Jay were super cool and really easy to have fun with. Lesli happens to be the proud owner and operator of Little Birdie Papercraft, a local wedding invitation and stationary business. Looking for anything like that? Check her out right here: http://www.littlebirdiestudio.com/.

 

We also had the opportunity to make their wedding film for them and also bring along the Bluecube. They even made an awesome custom backdrop (a huge chalkboard panel, actually) for the Bluecube photos (see those here). Put together a really well thought out and planned wedding at a cool venue with some awesome people and you’ve got yourself a good time. Check it all out below, starting off with their wedding film.

 

Congrats to Lesli and Jay!


 

 

Michel | Band Photos

Michel is a band consisting of two twin brothers Peter and Nathan from Rhode Island. They also happen to be brothers with Dan, one of Blueflash’s own cinematographers. They’re pumping out pop tunes and trying to break into the music scene here in RI and New England. They needed some band photos to use in their promo material and website so we did a session with them super early one morning in downtown Providence. We met up at something like 5:15AM I think. It’s pretty quiet in the city at that time. And cold, even in summer.

 

You can check out their site right here if you want to give their stuff a listen and find out what they’re about: http://www.michelofficial.com/. Below are some photos from their session:

 


Stacy and Brian | Quidnessett Wedding

Stacy was as down to earth as brides get. When we arrived she was totally calm and just hanging out with her friends and family. The getting ready was stress free and everyone was just relaxed and having a good time. When we met up with Brian a little later in the day we found the same thing going on with him and his crew.

 

They had an outdoor ceremony on the grounds followed by an outdoor photo session and then an indoor reception. Everything went off without a hitch.

 

Their whole Quidnessett wedding had the relaxed and chilled out vibe going on. Check out some highlights from their day below and congrats to Stacy and Brian!

 


Tracy | Goddard Park Family

You might be wondering why this is the second family session to hit the blog this week. What’s going on? Is Blueflash moving into the family portrait world? Not so much… We just happened to hook up with a couple good families that needed some pictures so we made it happen. This was another one where everyone got together from all over. Lots of kids and grandkids.

 

We met up at Goddard Park and shot the different combos and configurations of family members. After awhile the kids were a little restless (understandably so) and we headed over to the beach area and let them run around for little bit. I grabbed some candids while they were playing and then we got everyone together for a few more formal shots in a different area.

 

I think the shoot went pretty well. Some highlights are below to check out.

 


Sandra and Matt | Wickford Engagement

Sandra and Matt’s engagement session was on a super hot day this past summer. It’s hard to even imagine that kind of weather as I type this with close to three feet of snow outside my window. Anyways, we met up with them down by the water in Wickford and started there. After that we took a walk down the street and into the town and shot along the way.

 

After awhile we were all pretty much on the verge of melting and had to call it quits, but before that we found some cool little alley areas in the shade that made for some cool photos. Keep an eye out for these two, we’ll be photographing their wedding in the middle of this upcoming June. Check out some of the highlights from their session below:

 


Melissa and Rob | Portsmouth Wedding

After shooting Melissa and Rob’s engagement session up in Boston earlier, I knew their Portsmouth wedding was going to be great. Melissa is a sweetheart and Rob is a model gentleman. The wedding took place at the Carnegie Abbey House and the Newport Beach Club in Portsmouth, Rhode Island.

Everything was top notch and everyone there had a great time celebrating with Melissa and Rob. Melissa’s father ended the night by having a surprise fireworks display over the water. This was not a backyard display – it rivaled pretty much any fireworks display we’ve ever seen before. The whole wedding was an awesome experience and we were so glad to be a part of their day with both photographs as well as making their wedding film.

 

You can check out both the film and some photos from their day below. Thanks for having us and we wish you both all the best with your marriage!


 

 

Amanda and Kyle | Roger Williams Engagement

Amanda and Kyle’s Roger Williams engagement shoot is a perfect example of what a little planning and some props can do. I’ve known Amanda’s mom for quite some time – she’s the owner of The Enchanted Florist, which any of you engaged couples out there looking for a florist should check out. I’ve been buddies with her son Matt for who knows how long and so I was really excited when Amanda asked if I would shoot hers and Kyle’s wedding.

 

I hadn’t met Kyle before the engagement session, but from the second I did I knew he was a genuinely nice guy and he was awesome to work with and hang out with. Gotta love good people. We met up at Roger William’s Park and there was a bicycle, a dog, and a classic Mercedes Benz. We went right to work since we picked the perfect time with the sun starting to drop over the horizon. Once we lost the sun completely we headed inside to the carousel to get some really awesome shots.

 

I think we got some pretty sweet images from this one. Their planning with props and outfits went a long way. This is a good one to learn from – having a casual outfit and then some more formal attire gives you an awesome variety in your engagement session. Looking forward to their wedding later this year!

 


Becca | Family Photos

We had the opportunity to photograph multiple generations of Becca’s family. They flew in from different parts of the country and their family photo session was one of the first times in a long time they were all together. There was a cool energy as all the cousins got together and played in the field in between (and during) some of the photos.

 
It was great meeting them all and I hope they can look back on these photos many years into the future and relive their reunion. Take a look at some of the highlights from the session below.

 


Shannon and Mike | Blithewold Wedding

You may remember Shannon and Mike from their engagement session that got rained out at the Scituate Reservoir last year. I knew from that day that they were going to be good sports about whatever popped up. We did the engagement session as soon as the torrential rains let up and we ended up trekking into the forest on the side of the road to get shots. Good stuff.

 

Fast forward to their Blithewold wedding over the summer and we found ourselves next to some woods again. And bamboo forests. And other such areas not normally navigable by a bride. Didn’t matter to these two. I mentioned we could probably get a cool shot and the next thing I knew we were hiking through who knows what to get the shot set up. The bridal party was in for anything, too.

 

They had a great wedding that all went really smoothly. Yet another awesome couple whose wedding we got to be a part of. We’re actually in process right now of creating their album so I’m excited to get that designed and in their hands soon!
All the best to both of you in your new marriage adventure!
