Kristin and Jeremy | Narragansett Beach Engagement Session

Hey Blueflash Family! Today we have a little engagement session inspiration coming at you. Kristin and Jeremy chose a classic, perfect Rhode Island location: Narragansett Beach. You’re going to love this! The timing of this post is perfect: Kristin and Jeremy tied the knot this past Saturday! Today we’re honoring their union by sharing a few photos from their Narragansett Beach engagement session.

 

Matt photographed this sweet couple. We decided that sunset would be the perfect time to really capture the beauty of this picturesque area. They spent some time enjoying each other’s company in the area surrounding the historic Narragansett Towers. The weather couldn’t have been more beautiful. I love how they were able to make each other laugh. That kind of joy and connection in a couple always makes for stunning photos. Kristin and Jeremy ended the session by dipping their toes in the water!

 

We can’t wait for you to see their wedding photos. Congrats to this awesome couple. Check out highlights of their engagement session below!

Nadine and Jake | Hyatt Regency Wedding

Hey! Thanks for stopping by the Blueflash blog today! Summer is flying by. In order to slow down time a little bit, lets take a look back to Nadine and Jake’s Hyatt Regency Wedding. Emily and Brian joined them for the day for photography and Dan and Cal took care of their cinematography needs.

 

Nadine and her bridesmaids were joined by Makeover Artistry for their hair and the team from Nelse Karini for makeup! The girls were eager to get into their dresses after a fun hair and makeup session. After each of the girls stepped into their blue bridesmaid gowns, they helped Nadine into her gorgeous strapless lace Vera Wang wedding gown! The ladies were looking absolutely stunning, and ready to jet off to the ceremony!

 

With the couple’s closest friends and family gathered at Our Lady Of Mercy Chapel at Ochre Court, the bridal party took their proper places. Jake looked overjoyed as he watched his glowing bride walk down the aisle. Father Nicholas Fleming officiated the nuptials. With the ceremony complete, everyone was ready to celebrate! Creative Ambiance crafted the most beautiful floral arrangements and decorated the ballroom at the Hyatt Recenty to perfection. After the delicious feast provided by the Hyatt followed by the tastiest desserts from Confectionary Designs, the newly weds led all the guest to the dance floor. DJ Patrick from Eternal Events brought the party to life with dancing to everyones favorite tunes!

 

Thanks so much for letting us join the start of you journey Nadia and Jake! Make sure to scroll down and check out the highlights from their wedding below!

Venue Spotlight | Belle Mer

The Venue Spotlight Series

 

Over the past few years we’ve photographed a lot of wedding venues. Like, a lot of venues. We thought that we’d bring something a little different to the blog to highlight some of these wonderful spaces. In the coming months, we’ll feature some helpful information and beautiful photos and videos of wedding venues around Rhode Island, Massachusetts and Connecticut that you are going to absolutely love. So, without further ado, here’s the next edition of our venue spotlight series: Belle Mer!

 

Belle Mer

 

Many of the brides that we work with want a reception venue that they can put their mark on. Something stylish and beautiful where they can really let their own style really shine. There are few venues that fit this bill better then Belle Mer.  Situated on Goat Island, and close to all the amenities and sights of historic downtown Newport, Belle Mer couldn’t be in a better location. It’s a pristine, modern venue. The simple, neutral color scheme allows you to go wild with flowers and color schemes! While the walls and decor remains neutral in color, it’s anything but boring. With crystal chandeliers, billowy white curtains, and sliding glass walls, we know you’ll fall in love. Whether you want to go for a rustic, barefoot, bohemian look or have a black tie formal affair, this space is perfect.

They have several options for ceremony and reception locations. The Water Salon offers not one, but two gorgeous fireplaces. The Island House features a stunning view of the Newport bridge. The Ocean lawn can serve as a lovely outdoor ceremony location, a cocktail hour spot with lawn games, or even a post-reception lounge spot by the fire pit. The Loft is a perfect location to serve as a stylish bridal suite or to host an unforgettable rehearsal dinner. Belle Mer is a truly dynamic venue.

The property is managed by Longwood Events. Their salespersons and event staff are the most experienced around. They are truly a joy to work with. They also offer some amazing extras, like a fleet of unique boats for cocktail party or a sunset sail after the wedding of your dreams!

Check out some photos of the gorgeous Belle Mer below! Want to see more photos and video? Be sure to check out our other blog posts: Christina & Tom | Jamie & Corey | Jayna & Sam | Laura & Ben | Allison & Evan |  Satta & Kyle | Jessica & Christian

Jessica and Dennis | Tiverton Boathouse Proposal

We hope you all had an amazing weekend! Today, we’re going to take a glance back to Jessica and Dennis’ Tiverton Boathouse proposal! Matt was able to join them for the day and catch this very special moment on camera!

 

We often join couples on the day of their wedding, or to celebrate with them after they are already engaged. It’s always an awesome treat for us to be apart of this joyous moment – the proposal! It’s the start of a new chapter, and a huge honor to be a part of such an intimate moment.

 

After a wonderful meal and a quick stroll through the park along the waterfront, Jessica and Dennis Found a bench to sit and enjoy the view. When the time came, Dennis stood up in front of Jessica while holding a stack of large cards. Each card expressed the deep love that Dennis had for Jessica. With the last card read and put aside, Dennis got down on one knee, pulled out a jewelry box with a glistening engagement ring, and asked Jessica to be his wife! Jessica said yes and the rest is history! There was one last surprise of flowers and balloons and then we took some time to snap a few pictures to document the rest of this extraordinary day!

 

Congrats to the happy couple! Thanks for letting us tag along and celebrate with you! Make sure to check out the highlights of their engagement below!

Maura and Michael | OceanCliff Wedding

Today, let’s look back at Maura and Michael’s OceanCliff wedding! Nate did cinematography and Abby handled the Bluecube.

 

Maura started off her wedding day with a tremendous glam squad from LaLaLux Salon! They expertly took care of hair and makeup for the lovely ladies. Once our bride was absolutely glowing, her friends helped her slip into her Victor Harper wedding gown from Alexandra’s Bridal Boutique. With the ladies all set and ready to go, we took off for St. Mary’s Church for the ceremony! As Maura walked down the aisle, Michael waited with excitement as his gorgeous bride approached him.

 

After sharing vows and a kiss to make everything official, the newly weds led their guests to OceanCliff to celebrate! Sayles Livingston created beautiful floral arrangements, and everything looked breathtaking! THe team at Sayles Livingston alway goes above and beyond. At the reception, the guests indulged in a perfect meal provided by OceanCliff and tasty desserts from Sin Desserts! After all the food was gone, the last thing left to do was hit the dance floor with the new Mr. and Mrs.! Search Party brought the party to life!

 

Thanks for letting us be apart of your special day! Check out Maura and Michaels wedding highlights below!



Emily and Tim | Anniversary Session

Here is a sneak peek at Emily and Tim’s anniversary session with Matt!

 

Matt met up with Emily and Tim at a horse farm in North Attleboro, Massachusetts, to celebrate their anniversary! Emily got back into her wedding dress, traded in a pair of heels for riding boots, and saddled a horse along side Tim to see the country side of North Attleboro. We traveled along the farm enjoying the beautiful autumn day, with a crisp air and the trees all shades of colors. It was a perfect New England Day!

 

Thanks for letting us celebrate with you Emily and Tim! Check out the highlights from their anniversary shoot below!

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!

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!

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
