     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!


Valley Country Club Wedding Photos

Valley Country Club, Warwick, Rhode Island
Date: November 11th, 2022

     I'm always fascinated by the stories a bride and groom tell me about how they met. While it's true a lot of my couple meet online now, every now and again I get a story like Tara and Marcus' where the couple dated when they were young, drifted apart and reconnected. 

     To me, that type of love story just feels like fate played a role and that's fitting because on the day Tara and Marcus said "I do," some force of nature was certainly on their side. What do I mean? Find out for yourself by clicking here.

Brookmeadow Country Club Wedding Photos

Brookmeadow Country Club, Canton, Mass.
Date: November 5th, 2022

     Do you want to know the sign of a truly amazing wedding reception? It's easy. The venue coordinator has to tell you it's time to leave. 

     For Hannah and Houston, there was simply no other way their guests would have known it was time to stop the party on the night of their November nuptials. 

     In what was one of the most fun weddings I shot in 2022, Hannah and Houston said "I do" and then proceeded to rock the night away so fierce, I'm still thinking about it months later. Why? Check it out for yourself by clicking here.

Lake Pearl Wedding Photos

Lake Pearl, Wrentham, Massachusetts
Date: November 4th, 2022

     Wedding days can be about so many people that, sadly, sometimes a bride and groom forget to take a minute for themselves on their special day to appreciate where they are and what they're doing.

     That's why I was so thrilled for Jessica and Jonathan when, during their November nuptials at Lake Pearl, they took time at the end of their formal photos for a private vow ceremony with no one else around.

     Well, no one except me. And I'm glad I was there because it was the highlight of an absolutely amazing day. Why? Check it out for yourself by clicking here.

Red Lion Inn Wedding Photos

The Red Lion Inn, Cohasset, Massachusetts
Date: October 31st, 2022

     It's always a risk when a bride and groom plan to get married on a holiday but I feel like it's even riskier when that special day is Halloween. 

     After all, you're asking a LOT of your guests to forgo parties or Trick or Treating to spend a day watching your wedding so it has to deliver, right? 

     In Nicole and Cameron's case, their Halloween wedding at the Red Lion Inn not only proved to be well worth giving up Halloween for. Dare I say, it was better than Halloween. Why? Check it out for yourself by clicking here.

Kirkbrae Country Club Wedding Photos

Trinity Church & Kirkbrae Country Club
Date: October 28th, 2022

     There are a lot of things that your wedding day is SUPPOSED to be but if you ask me, the thing it should be more than anything else is fun. After all, why get married if you're not going to enjoy it?

     And for Benjamin and Jessica, who said "I do" back in October, I had no doubt they were having fun from the start of their wedding day until the end. And everything else was just a bonus.

     Benjamin and Jessica had one of my favorite and more fun weddings of the entire 2022 season. Why? Check it out for yourself by clicking here.

Five Bridge Inn Wedding Photos

Five Bridge Inn, Rehoboth, Massachusetts
Date: October 23rd, 2022

     It's so tempting on your wedding day to want to have full control of every moment but, sometimes, you have to know when things are out of your control.

     That was the theme for Diana and Tyler's October wedding at Five Bridge Inn as on again/off again showers made planning for photos near impossible. 

     Like all good couples, though, Diana and Tyler shrugged their shoulders and figured things would work out. And you know what? That positive attitude was rewarded. How? Well, click here to see how there was no way a little rain was going to ruin this beautiful day.

Quonset O Club Wedding Photos

St. Paul Church & Quonset 'O' Club
Date: October 22nd, 2022

     When you're a wedding photographer in New England and it's October, the last thing you want to do is pick up more work. Sometimes, though, it might not be what you want to do, it's what you NEED to do.

     And that's why I try never to turn down a second shooting assignment if I'm available. Because, every once in a while, I get to work with an awesome couple like Kayla and Michael, whose fall wedding day was the exact creative spark I needed at one of my most burnt out moments of the year.

Crystal Lake Golf Club Wedding Photos

Crystal Lake Golf Club, Mapleville, Rhode Island
Date: October 15th, 2022

     I feel fortunate any time a bride and groom trusts me enough to ask me to photograph their wedding day. But, sometimes, a day is so beautiful and a couple is so fun that I can't help but feel a little EXTRA lucky I get to do what I do for a living. Jessica and Phillip's October wedding is the perfect example of what I mean. 

     Without question, these two said "I do" on the most beautiful day for a wedding in 2022 and their picture perfect nuptials not only lived up, but actually surpassed the beauty of nature itself. Why? Check it out for yourself by clicking here.

Crowne Plaza Providence Warwick Wedding Photos

Crowne Plaza Hotel, Warwick, Rhode Island
Date: October 9th, 2022

     I love a couple that's not afraid to show emotions. If you can't care deeply about your wedding day, what CAN you care about? 

     I think that's why I knew Robert and Amanda's wedding was going to be so much fun to shoot. Because not only did the bride expect the groom to cry. The groom expected himself to cry. Both were right.

     Rob and Amanda's October wedding was one full of just about every emotion there is and I'm glad I got to document it. Why? See for yourself by clicking here.

Hampshire House Wedding Photos

Hampshire House, Boston, Massachusetts
Date: October 8th, 2022

     One of the things I love the most about wedding photography is you never know what is going to happen and what moments will become THE moments of a bride and groom's big day.

     Like, for example, when Michael and Sheila's wedding ceremony was interrupted by a medical emergency. In a moment that could have ruined most wedding days, Sheila and Michael showed their true relationship by laughing and joking about it and, honestly, by the end we all were to. Want to see why?

North Beach Clubhouse Wedding Photos

North Beach Clubhouse, Narragansett, RI
Date: October 6th, 2022

     Anytime I second shoot a wedding, there's a bit of nervousness as I meet the couple for the first time. Will I like them? Will they like me? Will this be a fun day?

     Until I walk into these shoots, I literally have no idea what to expect and that's why weddings like Lauren and Arianna's — where I felt right at home, right away — are so much fun to photograph. 

     Lauren and Arianna had a fantastic fall wedding day and even though I just met them that day, it felt like I knew them forever and you can see why for yourself by clicking here.

The Barn at Wight Farm Wedding Photos

The Barn at Wight Farm, Sturbridge, Massachusetts
Date: October 2nd, 2022

     There are few things in this world that get me more excited than a truly great wedding reception. Maybe it's the music. Maybe it's the sense of celebration. Maybe it's just that I need a more active social life.

     Regardless, a great wedding reception will have me smiling ear to end from the first song until the last and few moved me more in 2022 than Bryan and Polly's reception at the Barn at Wight Farm back in October.

     Why did I love Bryan and Polly's reception so much? Easy. It was the party of the year. Want to see why I feel that way? Check it out for yourself by clicking here.

Wright's Farm Wedding Photos

Wright's Farm, Burrillville, Rhode Island
Date: October 1st, 2022

     Everyone dreams of their wedding being a perfect day but the reality is, there's no such thing as perfect. This is especially true when Mother Nature has other plans for your big day than a beautiful, warm, sunny afternoon. 

     How you respond to these challenges is often the difference between a good and a great wedding and, for Chrissy and Brandon, it's the reason why even a day full of rain and clouds was still a day worth remembering as the day of their dreams. Want to see what I mean?

Allen Hill Farm Wedding Photos

Allen Hill Farm, Brooklyn, Connecticut
Date: September 30th, 2022

     I love big, showy weddings that feel like an event. But, every once in a while, it's nice to have a beautiful reminder of how that's simply not for everyone.

     In the case of Kaitlyn and Mathew, whose September wedding at Allen Hill Farm was one of my most intimate weddings of 2022, less was indeed more.

     Kaitlyn and Mathew kept their wedding day more focused on their love than any pomp and circumstance and yet, somehow, there were still dozens of big moments to love. Want to see what I mean? Check them out here.

Battleship Cove Wedding Photos

St. Joseph's Church & Our Lady of Light Band
Date: September 24th, 2022

     If you're around a bride and groom long enough on their wedding day, chances are you're going to see a wide range of emotions. 

     From anxiety and nerves to excitement and celebration, there's no day quite like a wedding day and few couples exhibited this full spectrum of human feelings quite like Nicole and Zachary did during their September wedding day in Fall River. 

     Looking back, I can't say I blame them because this was one wedding day FULL of magical moments. Want to see what I mean? Check it out here.

Independence Harbor Wedding Photos

Independence Harbor, Assonet, Massachusetts
Date: September 23rd, 2022

     There's always a moment during every wedding reception where I know we're about to find out exactly what kind of night it is going to be and for Kirsten and Nicholas, who were married back in September at Independence Harbor, that moment was their bride and groom introductions.

     Coming down the aisle, quite literally, to WWE wrestler Bobby Roode's theme song "Glorious" let everyone in attendance know this was not a night that would take itself too seriously and would be a ton of fun. And believe me, it lived up to those expectations.

Quidnessett Country Club Wedding Photos

Quidnessett Country Club, North Kingstown, RI
Date: September 22nd, 2022

     If I had a list of the phrases I said most as a wedding photographer, I think telling couples that I want them to have a "real wedding that shows who you really are" would be toward the top of the list.

     It would also be hard for me to illustrate this point better than with Victoria and Daniel's September wedding at Quidnessett Country Club.

     Of all the weddings I had in 2022, few felt more authentic to the couple than Victoria and Daniel's did as their wedding was an equal mix of sweet, senimental and silly. WhySee it for yourself by clicking here.

Harbor Lights Wedding Photos

Harbor Lights, Warwick, Rhode Island
Date: September 18th, 2022

     I try not to play favorites when I think back on a wedding season and try to figure out what photo I want to use as the marquee image of all my marketing for the next year but, at the end of 2022, there was no doubt that photo came from Jesslyn and John's big day at Harbor Lights in Warwick, Rhode Island.

     Why do I feel this way? Because not only were they an amazing couple with an amazing wedding day but we lucked out for one of the most beautiful sunset portrait sessions I've ever shot. Don't believe me? See it for yourself by clicking here.

Massachusetts Wedding Photos

Private Residence, Bellingham, Massachusetts
Date: September 17th, 2022

     If there's one thing the last few years of wedding photography have taught me, it's that I truly love a good backyard wedding. Maybe more than any other venue, a proper wedding at someone's home, and a reception under a tent, is just the right amount of low key to match my vibe and photography style.

     But few of my couples have ever nailed it quite as right as Tesa and Richard, whose September wedding was one of the most beautiful, chill, emotional and downright fun weddings I shot in all of 2022. Why do I feel that way? See for yourself by clicking here.

Granite Links Golf Club Wedding Photos

Granite Links Golf Club, Quincy, Massachusetts
Date: September 16th, 2022

     One of the reasons I continue to find wedding photography a creative challenge is every now and again a wedding day comes your way that keeps you on your toes.

     Katie and Michael's September wedding at Granite Links Golf Club was that way for me and I mean that in the best way. Whether it was a crazy busy bridal prep period, blinding sunshine during the ceremony or a rush to finish formals before sunset, this was one wedding where there was no slowing down. And I loved every minute of it. Why? See for yourself by clicking here.

Rachels Lakeside Wedding Photos

Rachel's Lakeside, Dartmouth, Massachusetts
Date: September 10th, 2022

     No matter how many weddings I shoot, I try hard not to forget why I'm there: To capture amazing moments for a bride and groom but, also, to have fun.

     Luckily, there are some couples whose wedding days simply could not go any differently. 

     Ashley and Joel were one of those and their September nuptials at Rachel's Lakeside were a constant exercise in laughing and joking around. And I mean that in the best way possible.

Private Residence, North Providence, Rhode Island
Date: September 4th, 2022

     One of the biggest worries I get from couples looking to book me on their wedding day is this idea that they don't want me to "miss a moment."

     Few have gone to the lengths Jennifer and Dominic did. however, as they, literally booked me from the start of their day until the end. Considering how eventful and amazing their wedding was, I can't say I blame them. 

     Jen and Domenic's wedding day was one of the most complete I've ever photographed and if you want to see what it means to truly not miss a moment of a wedding, check it out for yourself by clicking here.

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.

Squantum Association Wedding Photos

Squantum Association, Riverside, Rhode Island
Date: September 2nd, 2022

     Part of the beauty of second shooting is you get to show up, shoot a wedding and head out without having to do too much outside of the actual wedding day.

     The drawback is, often, you don't make the same kind of connections with a bride and groom. Luckily, it didn't take me long to feel like I knew Dawn and Paul on the afternoon of their September wedding. 

     Within moments of arriving, Paul felt like a long-lost friend and both he and his groomsmen set the tone for a super fun day where I felt right at home. Want to see 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

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.

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.

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.

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.
