Jamie and Cory |Belle Mer Wedding

We’re going to take a look at Jamie and Cory’s beautiful Belle Mer Wedding! Emily and Brian took care of photography, Dan handled cinematography, and Abby managed uplighting!

 

Jamie started her wedding day off at Jennie Kay Beauty Salon in Newport surrounded by her bridesmaids, filling the room with love and laughter. Once all of the hair and makeup was perfect, they helped our beautiful bride step into her gorgeous wedding gown. After one last mirror check, Jamie set off for Belle Mer Island House where Cory could get a first look! Cory gushed over how magnificent his bride looked and then these two love birds made their way over to the ceremony area. Cory and Jamie recited vows and made precious promises in front of their closest friends and family. Now that our bride and groom were officially man and wife, it was time to celebrate! Everyone enjoyed the delicious feast and ended the celebration on the dance floor as the sun was setting behind them over the Atlantic. It was the perfect Newport wedding.

 

Thanks for sharing this very special day with us Jamie and Cory! Be sure to check out the wedding film and highlights from their wedding below!

Bridal Shows

 

Bridal Shows can be very useful for the wedding planning process. You are able to meet the vendors in person and interact with products in real life, all in one location. Plus, many vendors run special deals! But, with dozens or even hundreds of booths to visit, it can be very overwhelming. We’re here to help you get it right. Check out the video below:

 

Alli and Francesco | Bristol Engagement

Matt was able to join Alli and Francesco for a lovely Bristol engagement shoot, lets take look!

 

We met up with Alli and Francesco last fall as the leaves were turning those lovely autumn shades that remind us why we live in New England.  Roger Williams University was a special location for the couple and made the perfect backdrop for the photos. After that, we took off for the beautiful Bristol beach. The ocean is one of our favorite places, even if it is a bit chilly. The sun was just starting to set as we were walking along the dock, which was the perfect way to end our day with these two love birds.

 

Congrats to Alli and Francesco! Their wedding is coming up soon and we can’t wait to spend some more time with them. Make sure to check out their engagement session highlights below!

We love shooting engagement sessions. They’re romantic, fun, and a really great place to show off your personality as a couple. If you’ve never had your picture taken professionally before, being one-on-one with a camera can be intimidating! Here are a few tips to help how to really get the session right:

Kelly-May and Mike | Aldrich Mansion Wedding

Let’s take a look at Kelly-May and Mike’s dazzling Aldrich Mansion Wedding! We had a full crew for this big day with Matt and Kearsten for photography, Dan and Caleb for cinematography, and Abby on uplighting…dream team right here!

 

The first thing Kelly-May and the girls did was prepare with their glam squad, consisting of RGE Salon for hair and Lisette Bugeja for makeup. Everyone looked absolutely magnificent and helped the bride step into her gorgeous Paula Varsalona wedding dress from Bridal Garden. Now that we had a glowing bride, it was time for her to surprise Mike with a first look! After walking down the steps, Mike turned around and there was nothing that could wipe that smile off his face. The lovebirds shared a few words before parting one last time before becoming man and wife at the ceremony!

 

Reverend Peter M. P. Mongeon officiated the wedding as Mike and Kelly-May said ‘I do” in front of their closest friends and family! Now that the bride and groom were officially wed, it was time to celebrate! During cocktail hour Night Rhythm played lovely tunes that uplifted the atmosphere.Whole Foods decorated the room beautifully with their impeccable floral arrangements. After enjoying a feast provided by Aldrich Mansion and delicious delicious desserts from Scrumptions, it was time to make our way over to the dance floor with Kristine Wilbur.

Jayna and her best ladies got ready with a little assistance from Makeover Artistry for hair and makeup. Our bridesmaids looked gorgeous and our bride was absolutely stunning! The last step in getting ready for this special day was for Jayna to slip into her marvelous Vera Wang wedding gown! When everyone was dressed and ready for the celebration, everyone headed to St. Joseph’s Church for the ceremony!

 

As everyone stood with eyes fixed on the gorgeous bride coming down the aisle, Sam waited at the altar radiating utter joy and excitement!

As Megan prepared for one of the biggest days in her life, she was surrounded by her closest girlfriends and Salon KG, rocking hair and makeup! Once all the final touches had been applied, Megan stepped into her gorgeous Amanda Garrett wedding gown from Riziks. Our bride was glistening with excitement and anticipation as she embarked to Jesus Saviour Church for the ceremony!

The Meaning of Photos

What is the meaning of life… I mean photos?

 

Sometimes as photographers we can become so immersed in the process of taking literally tens of thousands of photographs in a year that we forget the bigger picture (see what I did there?). Fun fact – the Blueflash team took over 200,000 photographs last year alone.

 

The Bigger Picture

What is the bigger picture? What I mean is that these photographs serve as important markers and reminders in the lives of the people that are in them. As Tara, Ezra, Finn, and I wait for the newest member of our family to arrive (four days behind schedule as of today) I’ve been thinking about how your family permanently changes with the addition of each new member. It’s a great thing, but it’s change, and with any change after some time it becomes difficult to remember how things used to be. What if you want to be able to remember?

 

Why Photos Are Important

That’s where photos come in. Emily took some photos of our family a month or two ago. A pregnant Tara and our two kids got together for about 30 minutes (that’s all you can get out of little dudes) and because of that we have that stage of our lives and our family preserved for us to look back on. I can already see with two kids how hard it is to remember what it was like when we just had one. Don’t even bother trying to remember the time before kids! The only thing that transports me back to those different stages is photos and videos of those times.

 

Wedding photos fit into the mix just as nicely. Your wedding day becomes an anchor and representation of the beginning of your married life together. For all the years ahead you have these pictures that transport you back to a certain point in time in your lives. Along with that come thoughts, feelings, and memories that surrounded that timeframe. It’s pretty cool stuff. Sometimes it’s just hard to see that value in a simple photograph when you’re still in the moment. It’s one of the few things that is guaranteed to increase in value as time goes on.

 

Looking at these photos made me start thinking of these things so I thought I’d share it with you guys along with posting some highlights from our family session. Big thanks to Emily for being awesome. Enjoy!

 

-Matt
