Susan and Ben | Towers Wedding

We love ourselves a good early morning start. Most of the time. It’s worth it when your day starts out with the view you can see in the first photo below. It also helps when there’s good people on the other end getting ready for their wedding day. That was the case for us with Susan and Ben’s Towers wedding.

 

It was a 7AM start time at the Towers. They had a day wedding (brunch for the win) and in order to be ready for a 10:30AM ceremony you’ve got to start early. Dan, Emily and I got to the Towers at about ten of seven and saw the sun start to peek its head across the Atlantic horizon. Not bad.

 

Everything went pretty much according to plan with the girls. The guys showed up at about quarter to nine and we hung out with them for a bit to get some photos and video. The Towers looked great for the ceremony at that time of day. Light flooded in through the windows all along the whole venue. I don’t think I took my flash out of my case the entire wedding which was a nice change of pace.

 

The rest of the reception was classy and relaxed. Day weddings have a totally different feel than night weddings. It’s really interesting to experience the difference. When the day was getting close to the end we jumped in the car and drove down the street with Ben and Susan to get some more photos and video of the two of them together. They put their handwritten vows in a bottle and threw them into the Atlantic, the start of an annual tradition for them. It was, umm, in a biodegradable bottle…

 

Check out their wedding film and highlights below. Congrats to the both of them as they start their new life together!

RI Monthly | Top Lawyers 2014

RI Monthly hosted their Top Lawyers event at the Inskip Mercedes dealership in Warwick, RI. We were there to capture the photos and make a recap video for them as we are at all their events. These are always fun because Dan and I get to pretend like we’re making a car commercial.

 

Fireworks catering was there to keep everyone fed and Monty and his jazz trio kept everyone entertained. As usual we went from candid mode at the beginning of the event into formal portraits in front of the step and repeat background with the award winners. Give’em a look and be sure to check out the video!

Alita and Will | Towers Wedding

We loved working with Alita and Will at their Towers wedding. They were so easygoing, had a good sense of humor, and were just generally good people. They loved each other and were excited to be getting married and it showed.

 

Alita and her girls got ready at the Hampton Inn. That’s also where the guys ended up and where they had their first look. There was a big grassy area in the back of the property lined with trees that looked pretty cool. Alita sported her red Toms throughout the event and Will had some equally bold red Supras.

 

We were able to get a good variety of photos with Narragansett beach a few steps away and a little rock jut-out down the street from the Towers. Check out the sweet night time shots out on the balcony. I’m loving how those came out with the lights and ocean in the background.

 

Thanks so much to Alita and Will for having us be a part of their wedding. We wish you guys all the best with everything!

Jen and John | Newport Engagement

It was a windy day in Newport. No, that’s an understatement. It was nearly a hurricane in Newport. That didn’t deter Jen and John from being all smiles. We had a great session together around town. We may or may not have taken a little mid-session break in the Newport Starbucks to get some blood back in our hands. I couldn’t feel the shutter button after awhile.

 

Jen and John are from California and were only in town for a little bit. I felt a little bad that they came from warm California to hang out in blustery cold Newport, but they seemed to be in good spirits.

 

Take a look at some highlights from their session below!

Angelica and Andrew | Biltmore Wedding

Angelica and Andrew’s Biltmore wedding took place last fall in Providence, Rhode Island. It was an elegant event that showcased the love between the two of them. We were able to get some really nice photographs on the Brown campus with the bridal party and Angelica and Andrew. Definitely check out some of those images below.

 

The day’s schedule was a little different for this wedding. We were there for the getting ready, the ceremony (of course), portraits, and the beginning of the reception. What was different, however, was that we weren’t around for the dancing portion of the ceremony. We started in early on the day and were done by dinner.

 

I didn’t know how that was going to turn out. I thought there might be a glaring hole in the gallery collection afterwards because we didn’t get a chance to capture the dancing. After we edited the photos and delivered them to Angelica and Andrew I realized that I really liked the feel of it all. It was classy. It was elegant. It was different. It also helped that there was a big group dance during the introductions before dinner.

 

Most importantly, Angelica and Andrew are off to start their new life together and we wish them all the best. Check out some highlights from their day below, including their wedding film!

Dana and Scott | Providence Engagement

Dana is a long time friend of one of my long time friends which is how we ended up connecting. I’m glad we did, because Dana and Scott are an awesome down to earth couple that were really great to hang out with, talk with, and photograph. They were game for an early morning Providence engagement session. The city was still quiet when we got together. Almost every street parking spot was available. And it was cold. It never seems to be too warm before the sun comes up for some reason.

 

We met up on Benefit Street and made our way around that area of the city. At Prospect Park we did a little fence jumping and took some pictures overlooking the city from the statue’s point of view. We even got to pop up a light and umbrella over there to add some drama to the lighting. It was early enough that nobody told us to get out.

 

Very much looking forward to their wedding at the end of September this year. Keep an eye out for their wedding photos when it’s time! Here’s some highlights from their session:

Tara and Kevin | Roger Williams Engagement

I met up with Tara and Kevin at Roger Williams Park for their engagement session. Roger Williams is a frequently used spot for photography in Rhode Island so it’s always a challenge to make it a little bit different and unique for each couple. We don’t want all of our sessions to look the same, even if they’re in the same location.

 

With that said, Roger Williams Park requires a little extra effort to not have it look like every other session shot there because a lot of the spots are so iconic to Rhode Islanders. We tried to go off the beaten path a little bit but also hit some of the landmarks that everyone knows.

 

They brought their dogs along so they could get some photos with them. They also gave the open space at the park a run for its money. Tara and Kevin are getting married this October so we’re looking forward to photographing that and also bringing the Bluecube along for them! Highlights from the session below:

Courtney and Ted | Hope Club Wedding

Courtney and Ted come to you from their memorable engagement session down in Tiverton. It was the one that started super early in the morning, I almost ran out of gas getting there, and then Ted and I both ended up cliff jumping into the ocean. We then continued the session and capped things off by getting ice cream at 7AM. We keep things pretty interesting around here.

 

It has to be said that Courtney and Ted are full of class. They have been a total pleasure to work with throughout the whole process and by the time we got to their wedding it felt like we were guests rather than vendors at their Hope Club wedding.

 

Everything was at The Hope Club, including the ceremony and first look. Their relationship basically started at The Hope Club so they felt it was an appropriate place to have their wedding. The ceremony setup was unlike any other we’ve seen. I loved it. Couches and armchairs were mixed together with regular seating in a room with giant windows. It was the most cozy ceremony we’ve been to. Check it out in the photos.

 

Once the ceremony was over and we had some time to take photos the sky had opened up and started dumping serious rain on everything. Staying true to their adventurous ‘up for anything’ personalities, Courtney and Ted said they were game for heading outside with the bridal party for pictures. They found some umbrellas that The Hope Club keeps around and we made our way into the monsoon. I was really glad we did because the photos in the rain came out really cool. Get wet for a few minutes, have cool photos for life. We think it’s worth it. It was also worth spending ten minutes drying off lenses and the camera once we got back inside.

 

A huge congratulations to these two and we wish them all the best in their new marriage adventure together. Thank you so much for having us along for the ride!

Danielle and Rich | Whispering Pines Wedding

Danielle and Rich had the quintessential fall wedding at Whispering Pines. The colors were all over the trees because the wedding landed at just the right time. She nailed it with the flowers which were handmade by Danielle herself. She actually used wheat from their family farm in the midwest to create them. I thought that was pretty cool.

 
Whispering Pines is an awesome outdoor venue. It was our first time there and luckily we got to make their wedding film and take their photographs. The land it’s on goes forever and we took a drive for some photos off the beaten path a bit.

 

Dancing was out on the back porch and the dinner part of the reception was in the building (that the back porch was attached to). The night capped off with a fireside chat for the remaining guests complete with marshmallow roasting. Danielle is an avid scrapbooker so I hope what we provided to them will keep her busy creating all sorts of books for their wedding! Congrats to them both!

Salvatore Mancini | Celebration of Age

We ended up at this event in such a strange way. I had an idea kicking around in my head for about a half of a year where I wanted to partner up with a senior home of some type and bring our studio gear to their place and do portraits of all the residents. I wanted to do it as personal work – just a project that I thought would be good for the community.

 

I had contacted a few places but strangely enough couldn’t find any takers. I was surprised, since I wasn’t asking for anything in return. I got discouraged and pretty much gave up on the idea. After some time passed my buddy Steph (of Stephanie Mills Photography) shot me a message asking if I wanted to do some portraits for the Salvatore Mancini Center’s Celebration of Age event. She wasn’t able to do it due to other obligations and once I found out what it was I was totally game for it.

 

It’s an event that they have every year to honor anybody in the community over the age of ninety. They come and bring a family member and they serve them lunch, have some entertainment, and play some games. They also get a portrait of themselves on the way in (which is where I come in). I was pumped. I enlisted the help of my good friend Breanna to assist for the shoot and we lugged the studio gear to the center. We set up shop in the lobby and next thing we knew the seniors were coming through the door and sitting for their photo.

 

It was fun. It was interesting. It was humbling. These people have lived so many years and experienced so much in their lifetime. They’ve gone through so much, many of them experiencing extremely hard times and also some of life’s most exciting highs. A lot of them were great to interact with, many of them still sharp as when they were twenty.

 

We used a grey seamless backdrop, a white reflector camera left, a gridded speedlight on the background pointing up, and the key light was a socked 22″ white beauty dish with an Einstein making the light for us. I’m really happy with the look of the shots. If we had some more room they would have come out a touch better. We weren’t able to separate the subjects from the background as much as I would have liked. Consequently the key light was spilling onto the backdrop a bit.

 

Technical imperfections aside, I’m happy with and proud of this collection of photos. I hope they mean a lot to the families that received them (we provided a complimentary 5×7 to each attendee) for a lot of years to come. Check out the images. Every face tells a story. Thanks for letting us be a part of your event, and hopefully we can do it again next year!
