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!

Emily and Tim | Glen Manor Wedding

I love a good bridal party. When they know how to have fun, joke around, and just be good people then it makes for an awesome wedding for us. Emily and Tim picked some good people for their bridal party and it made for a really fun day and night.

 

The forecast called for rain and the girls were prepared. Umbrellas and tall green boots made their debut for some of the photos (even though the rain held off). Everything happened at the Glen, including the getting ready for the girls. The room had great light pouring in through big windows.

 

The Glen Manor is always a pleasure to shoot at. I love the dock out back and the stone texture of the building itself is really photogenic for a back drop. The temptation for a lot of people I think is to run straight to the gardens, but in my opinion there are a lot of better locations on the property that don’t immediately stick out to you.

 

The Bluecube was there as well to keep the party going late into the night. I like where it goes at the Glen – out on the back patio. It’s nice in the summer time because it’s outdoors but still covered by an overhang. Gives it a cool feel.

 

All the best to Emily and Tim in their new marriage. Thanks for choosing Blueflash!

Christiana and Josh | Proposal

Emily had the awesome opportunity to photograph an engagement in action. Bonus points because Christiana (the girl getting engaged) is one of Emily’s good friends. I’m going to let her tell you about this one, then don’t miss the pictures following! Take it away, Emily…

-Matt

 

Last summer, I was a teary eyed spectator standing only a few steps off as my two very dear friends, Josh and Christiana, got engaged. And in the glow of probably the grandest sunset the world has ever seen, I thought to myself, we have dreamed of this forever.

 

Christie and I have been friends since the start. We daydreamed together of the magic of meeting someone, falling in love, getting engaged- everything you’re supposed to dream about with your best friend. Somewhere along the way, I did watch Christie meet her someone, and I then happily watched as she fell in love with him just as I always hoped she would. However, never did I think for a second I’d get to experience the proposal part of the dream with her. Yet there I stood trying to take these pictures, trying to hold back my happiest tears, as she said yes to the guy who I know will love her fiercely and forever as she deserves.

 

This was one of the best nights of my life. No, it wasn’t my night, but for some beautiful reason I had the privilege of watching and capturing my friend have the greatest night of her life, and those kind of moments are nothing short of magical.

-Emily

Kristina and Nick | Regatta Place Wedding

Kristina and Nick’s Regatta Place wedding was as picturesque as they get. Perfect temperature, a sunset throwing colors all over everything, a light breeze blowing across the water, and a party that went deep into the night.
 
The guys arrived by boat to Regatta Place and the girls arrived the traditional way in land vehicles known as cars. It made for some cool video and photos (we got to do both for them). The ceremony and reception were both at Regatta Place. Later in the night there was gelato being served right outside the tent which was a nice bonus.
 
It was fun working with a lively bridal party (and couple) and I think it was an all around good time for everyone. Check out some of the highlight photos below and definitely their wedding video. Congrats to Nick and Kristina and thanks for having us!

Courtney and Chuck | Omni Wedding

We were recently able to be a part of Courtney and Chuck’s Omni wedding in Providence. You might remember them from their engagement session. Courtney also runs the blog “The Blogtini” and is a featured write for “Aisle Say”, RI Monthly’s series of real brides writing about their planning and wedding experiences. We had the opportunity to photograph it and provide uplighting (you do know we offer uplighting, right?) in the grand ballroom of the Omni. That place is massive and definitely deserves the word ‘grand’ in front of it.

 

They got ready at the Omni and from there went to their ceremony at St. Mary’s church in Bristol, RI. Once they were hitched we headed right back to the Omni and got busy taking photos anywhere in the place that looked good. The party started soon after that. We flipped the uplights on, lit up the place, and the wedding party was announced by Luke of LRE.

 

The rest of the night went off without a hitch and the party was still going strong when it was time for us to pack up and head out. People danced all night and everyone seemed to have a great time. As for Courtney and Chuck… They had a one week delay before they went away on their honeymoon so I went a little crazy and got all of their photos done by the following Tuesday and had them over Thursday night for a Blue Review. How’s that for prompt service?

 

It was pretty awesome having them come by so soon and before they went away. We had a great time going through all of their photos, showing them everything, and helping them pick out the perfect albums.

 

All the best to Courtney and Chuck with their new marriage. Congrats guys!

RI Monthly | Top Designers 2014

As part of our continuing stint as the official RI Monthly photographer and cinematographer, we documented the 2014 Top Designers event held at the RI Design Center (part of Cardi’s). It was a fitting place to host it.

 

We were able to shoot some candids as well as the group photos in front of the step and repeat background and also create a highlight video to recap the event. You can see both below:
