WEDDING PHOTO BLOG

     It's often said that one of the best ways to grow as a wedding photographer is to write a recurring blog featuring some of your clients. It helps connect you with your readers and let's you show your voice to the world in ways the images don't themselves always convey. 

     For this reason, in the fall of 2014 I began a newly-designed photo blog specifically for my wedding photography that I hoped would ultimately lead me to telling some of the stories behind my favorite photos. Little did I know it would evolve into something much, much more than that. 

     This blog is a chance for me to document my thoughts about each and every wedding I shoot. Some of them are my George Street weddings where I will likely never see the couple again, and those blogs provide a historical record of the day in question. Others are from my own personal clients and allow me the chance to showcase what I consider the best work from those sessions in an easy-to-access webpage that my clients can see for themselves and show to their friends and families. 

     Either way, I thoroughly enjoy writing these blogs and hope you enjoy reading them. With that being said, have a look and let me know what you think. This blog will update regularly throughout wedding season. Enjoy!

MY LATEST WEDDING PHOTO BLOGS

Rhode Island Wedding Photos

Private Residence, North Providence, Rhode Island
Date: September 3rd, 2022

     Of all the pieces of advice I offer to my brides and grooms each year, I think the single most important one is "Just be yourself."

     It's a message that can get lost in the fog of wedding planning but it's one that I think can make or break your day and couples like Kristen and Gerard show why.

     Kristen and Gerard were married back in September at a private residence in North Providence, Rhode Island and their backyard wedding day was the definition of "them." And it was a blast. Want to know why? Check it out for yourself by clicking here.

Bittersweet Farm Wedding Photos

Bittersweet Farm, Westport, Mass.
Date: September 1st, 2022

     One of my favorite things to see is a bride or groom who "hates having their photos taken" turn into a bride or groom who LOVES having their photo taken. 

    I'd love to say this is something I bring out in people but, in truth, it's just something that happens when a bride or groom is over-the-top happy on their wedding day and that was the case for Michelle and Raymond. 

     Michelle and Ray had the very definition of a rustic New England wedding and there were so many reasons to laugh and smile. Want to know why? Check it out for yourself by clicking here.

John Alden Sportsman's Club Wedding Photos

John Alden Sportsman's Club, Plymouth, Mass.
Date: August 27th, 2022

     There are a lot of reasons why I love wedding photography but one of the most underrated ones is getting to see in other couples what you have in your own life.

     I think that's partly why I had so much fun working with Marlana and Christopher on the day of their August wedding as their back-and-forth ribbing of each other and playful banter reminded me a TON of my own relationship and their wedding felt, in many ways, like an event my own family would have. Why? Check it out for yourself by clicking here.

Holiday Hill Day Camp Wedding Photos

Holiday Hill Day Camp & Recreation Center
Date: August 20th, 2022

     There's a fine line to walk between planning the wedding of your dreams and sticking close enough to the standard beats of a wedding day that your guests enjoy themselves too. 

     I think that's why Matt and Stacie's August wedding at the Holiday Hill Day Camp & Recreation Center in Mansfield Center, Connecticut was so special.

     Matt and Stacie incorporated parts of themselves into the day they became husband and wife but they also made sure the day was fun for everyone else. How? Check it out for yourself by clicking here.

Crystal Lake Golf Club Wedding Photos

Crystal Lake Golf Club, Mapleville, Rhode Island
Date: August 19th, 2022

     If I had to describe my idea of a perfect wedding day, it's one that should make you laugh, make you cry and ... well, make you shake your head in disbelief over how your guests act once the party starts.

     Oh. Did I say I'd describe the perfect wedding day? I guess what I meant was I'd describe Nicole and Dennis' August wedding at Crystal Lake Golf Club. 

     Nicole and Dennis had one of my favorite weddings of 2022 because it was full of all the moments and emotions that make a wedding special. Want to see why? Check it out for yourself by clicking here.

The Guild Pawtucket Wedding Photos

The Guild, Pawtucket, RI
Date: August 12th, 2022

     I'm a big proponent on the idea that where you get married should fit who you are and I don't know if I've seen a couple this year that made a more fitting choice for a venue than Kelsey and Mike.

     Kelsey and Mike were married at the Guild in Pawtucket back in August and this low key brewery was the perfect setting for their casual, laid back party that just so happened to also feature a wedding. 

     I loved how true to themselves Kelsey and Mike were on their wedding day and if you want to see why, check it out for yourself by clicking here.

Potowomut Golf Club Wedding Photos

Potowomut Golf Club, East Greenwich, RI
Date: August 6th, 2022

     I'm always fascinated with how a bride and groom first meet and few couples I've worked with have a more unlikely story than Tessa and Tom, who met while serving in the Coast Guard together.

     The first time the pair told me their story, they laughed because Tom was Tessa's boss at the time but on their wedding day, you could see that their love went so far beyond a job title by the way they looked at each other and held one another in their arms. 

     Want to see what I mean? Check out Tessa and Tom's big day for yourself by clicking here.

Crystal Lake Golf Club Wedding Photos

Crystal Lake Golf Club, Mapleville, Rhode Island
Date: July 23rd, 2022

     Weddings are stressful events and, while it might seem like an easy thought to have, being able to laugh and joke around on the day you get married is a rare trait.

     That's why I loved Megan and Louis' July wedding at Crystal Lake Golf Club so much. These two absolute sweethearts never let the stress of their day overwhelm them and, more importantly, stayed true to themselves even during one of their lives' most important moments.

     And the photos? They reflected that. Want to see why? Check them out for yourself here.

Independence Harbor Wedding Photos

Independence Harbor, Assonet, Massachusetts
Date: July 15th, 2022

     Second shooting as a wedding photographer can be a blessing and a curse. On the one hand, you have a lot more creative freedom when you're a second shooter. On the other, you don't get to spend as much time with a bride and groom as you would have otherwise.

     For me, the purest sign that I had a great day as a second shooter is when I don't want the party to end and, for Alysia and Anthony's July wedding at Independence Harbor, that's exactly what happened.

Colt State Park Wedding Photos

St. Mary's Parish & Wyndham Newport Hotel
Date: July 9th, 2022

     Like many adults my age, I have an affinity for the magic of Disney. Look, I grew up with it. 

     But, as a wedding photographer, that love runs even deeper because I know whenever I encounter a bride and groom that incorporates Disney into their special day that they're a fun couple that believes in fairy tales and happy ever after. 

     Few couples have proven that statement more than Jamie and Scott and you can see why their Disney-themed wedding really was a dream come true by checking it out for yourself here.

Danversports Wedding Photos

Danversport, Danvers, Mass.
Date: July 3rd, 2022

     At its core, wedding photography is a game of patience. 

     In my case for Ida and Justin's July wedding date, that meant checking every couple of minutes if the sun would FINALLY let up enough for us to shoot some bride and groom portraits.

     It took a while but it finally did some 20 minutes before sunset on that July afternoon and, boy, was it worth the wait. See why I loved Justin and Ida's portraits, and their wedding day as a whole by checking it out for yourself here.

Coachmen's Lodge Wedding Photos

Coachmen's Lodge, Bellingham, Mass.
Date: July 1st, 2022

     At their core, weddings are supposed to be fun and, as much as I try to remind my couples of this, most of them get caught up in the stress and seriousness of the day and forget to just relax and enjoy themselves.

     Not Emily and Josh, though. These two, who were married back in July at Coachmen's Lodge in Bellingham, Massachusetts had a wedding day that was, from start to finish, one of the most fun I've ever seen.

Avenir Wedding Photos

Avenir, Walpole, Mass.
Date: June 26th, 2022

     It never ceases to amaze me that even now, 12 years after I photographed my first wedding, I'm still discovering new venues I've never been to before that are so beautiful they blow my mind.

     For Marissa and David's wedding back in June, this meant by first-ever trip to Avenir in Walpole, Massachusetts and, I've got to be honest, it was well worth the wait.

     Marissa and David had an absolutely gorgeous wedding day and it was only partly because of the location they chose. See it for yourself by clicking here.

Massachusetts Wedding Photos

Private Residence, Danvers, Mass.
Date: June 18th, 2022

     It's cliche but you can really tell a lot about a couple by the first impression you get when you meet them. 

     When I met Amanda and Michael after a bridal expo back in January, I knew right away they were my kind of people and their backyard wedding at the bride's mother's house was going to be fun. 

     What I didn't know is just how much fun it would be but when I headed out TWO HOURS into the four hours they set aside for dancing, and they were still going, I knew this would be a wedding I wouldn't soon forget. See why for yourself by clicking here.

Soprano's Casino By The Sea, Falmouth, Mass.
Date: June 17th, 2022

     If there's one thing that will make or break your wedding day as a bride and groom, it's your ability to handle stress.

     For Jesse and Michelle, who were married back in June at Soprano's Casino By The Sea, this meant staying calm as a downpour rolled through their area right before they walked down the aisle, delaying their ceremony by a full half hour.

     Did Jesse and Michelle freak out? Absolutely not. And that's why their wedding day was a beautiful one I know they won't forget. Check it out by clicking here.

First Unitarian Church of Providence Wedding Photos

First Unitarian Church of Providence
Date: June 11th, 2022

     If we're being honest, the main goal of any wedding for a bride and groom — besides, ya know, the whole getting married thing — has got to be to do something or having something so memorable your friends and family members never forget it. 

     For Carolyn and Lucas, I know deep down the one thing their guests will be talking about forever is the afternoon of super fun and super sweet contra dancing that everyone brave enough to take to the dance floor loved instantly. Want to see why? Check it out for yourself by clicking here.

Wright's Farm Wedding Photos

Wright's Farm, Burrillville, Rhode Island
Date: June 3rd, 2022

     I've said this more times than I can count but I genuinely believe WHERE you get married says a ton about who you are as a bride and groom. 

     That's why I knew Amanda and Chris were my kind of people when they told me they have their big day at Wright's Farm in Burrillville, Rhode Island.

     Wright's Farm is an institution in the Ocean State and is beloved for their family-style meals and amazing atmosphere and both were true on the day made their marriage official-official. Want to see why? Check out this awesome wedding for yourself by clicking here.

Pond House Cafe Wedding Photos

The Pond House Cafe, West Hartford, Connecticut
Date: June 2nd, 2022

     I love the beauty of New England. No matter how long you live here, you still discover new things to fall in love with and, for me, I can't see any other new location hitting me quite like the Pond House Cafe did for Ryan and Stephanie's wedding back in June.

     How special was this spot? Well, it was so nice that neither I, the bride or groom cared even a little that it was raining during their first look. We just HAD to take photos here. 

     And you know what? It was worth it. Want to see why?Check it out for yourself by clicking here.

Saphire Estate Wedding Photos

Saphire Estate, Sharon, Massachusetts
Date: May 20th, 2022

     Among my biggest worries on a wedding day is whether or not a bride and groom will have time to actually enjoy themselves.

     Weddings are stressful and they go by the blink of an eye but, thankfully, sometimes it's quite obvious when a bride and groom are making the most of every moment.

     Case in point: Jennifer and Zachary, who turned the last hour of their reception into the most jam-packing party I've ever seen. Want to know why I feel that way? Check it out for yourself by clicking here.

Five Bridge Inn Wedding Photos

Five Bridge Inn, Rehoboth, Massachusetts
Date: May 7th, 2022

     One of my favorite feelings on a wedding day is the wide grin on my face that I struggle to hide when I see a bride and groom truly enjoying their day.

     For some people, this is evident when they look longingly at each other during their a ceremony. For Jaclyn and Corey, it was in the way they kept making each other laugh. And I can't think of a more fitting way for these two to have become husband and wife.

     Jaclyn and Corey were married in May at Five Bridge Inn and if you want to see why it was one of the most fun wedding days I've ever shot, click here.

The Villa at Ridder Country Club Wedding Photos

The Villa at Ridder Country Club
Date: April 16th, 2022

     As much as I love the entire wedding photography process with a bride and groom — from our first consult until I deliver the images — sometimes it's just nice to show up, shoot and leave.

     That's one of the reasons I love occasionally working as a second shooter and while I don't plan on picking up a ton of second shooter gigs this year, I am so glad I got to photograph Tonya and Matt's wedding back in April for Pretty Nerdy Photography.

     Why? It was a day full of tons of fun, no stress and lots of cool moments. See for yourself by clicking here.

Lake Pearl Wedding Photos

Lake Pearl, Wrentham, Massachusetts
Date: December 4th, 2021

     As a wedding photographer, you always want to end on a strong note. Whether it's an engagement session, a wedding or an entire wedding season, there's no better feeling than walking away from something you finished feeling great about how things turned out.

     And that's what I adored the most about Kevin & Jillian's December wedding at Lake Pearl. 

     My final shoot of 2021, I couldn't have asked for a nicer or sweeter day to close out the best wedding season of my career and if you'd like to see why, check it out for yourself by clicking here.

Newport Marriott Wedding Photos

Newport Marriott, Newport, Rhode Island
Date: December 3rd, 2021

     I have a pretty simple rule when it comes to the music at a wedding reception: If I see a live band, I know we're in for one heck of a party.

     Melissa and Patrick proved this theory to me once again as their December wedding day was FULL of amazing moments on and off the dance floor.

     But I've expect nothing less as this couple are amazing in so many ways on their own. 

     Whether it was a sweet first look, some well-timed bride and groom portraits in the cold or their sweet and touching ceremony, this is one day worth checking out.

Kirkbrae Country Club Wedding Photos

Kirkbrae Country Club, Lincoln, Rhode Island
Date: November 21st, 2021

     Whenever I'm driving home from shooting a wedding, I can't help but think about the one moment above all that defined the day for the bride and groom.

     For Catherine and Sean, that moment when they asked their guests to leave the Kirkbrae Country Club ballroom and took the dance floor by themselves for one last song.

     It was a storybook ending to a beautiful wedding day but it was just one moment on a day full of memories and you can check out some of the rest of this, one of my favorite weddings of 2021, by clicking here.

Bournedale Function Facility Wedding Photos

Bournedale Function Facility, Plymouth, Mass.
Date: November 20th, 2021

     As much as I enjoy fall weddings in New England, I always find myself a bit worried when the calendar turns to mid November.

     You never quite know what you're in for over the last six or so weeks of a given year so when Allison and Joe told me they were getting married by the water toward the end of November, I panicked a bit inside. 

     Luckily, my worries of a wintery, cold, outdoor wedding were overblown as Allison and Joe had a beautiful, warmer-than-expected ceremony that was absolutely perfect for them. WhyCheck it out here.​​​​
