Morgan + Garrett’s Roger Williams Park Engagement Photos

Roger Williams Park in the spring just cannot be beat.  Pink and white blossoms everywhere, and Morgan, Garrett, and I totally took advantage of what was in bloom.  We started off in the Japanese Gardens, and then made our way around the park. This park is such a gem in Providence. It’s huge, and while it’s usually crowded, things were relatively calm the evening we were there (minus the two wedding parties and prom groups!).

I like to shoot a mixture of up close, intimate portraits, standard portraits, and wide shots encompassing the beautiful backgrounds. For these shots, I used two lenses: 35mm (for the wide shots and up close intimate portraits) and the 85mm (for the standard portraits).  It’s nice to have a mix so that not everything looks the same.

Enjoy the photos!

I call the next set of portrait poses the, “For Mom and Dad”. While I always like to have a mix of natural looking moments (which are most often the result of nervous giggles!), I always try to take a few posed, looking directly at the camera, as parents and grandparents always seem to love these.  It’s a good “staple” portrait!

A Lifestyle Family Portrait Session in Rhode Island

90% of the time, I photograph families outside on the beach or at the park. But, what do you do in winter, or with a small baby? For these situations, I photograph families and babies in their homes. They are most comfortable in their own homes, and I find everyone to be much more relaxed. These sessions are typically called “Lifestyle” sessions, because we are photographing natural moments in the home, versus more posed set-ups in a studio.  I LOVE photographing Lifestyle sessions. It’s more photojournalistic, and it focuses more on the subjects and their interactions instead of the prop or set.  It’s more natural, emotional, and timeless.

A few weeks ago, I photographed this new family with a 4-month-old. While we were hoping to get more outside shots, the weather just did not cooperate. So, we stayed in the living room for most of the session. I really love how they turned out!

Mallory and Doug’s Newport Yachting Center Wedding

Congratulations, Doug and Mallory! What a GORGEOUS wedding! I LOVED Mallory’s dress….isn’t it unique?? Doug and Mallory were married at the beautiful St. Mary’s Church in Newport. If you are a history buff, then you know that this is the church where John F. Kennedy and Jacqueline Bouvier were married. It is gorgeous inside! In addition, the priest gave one of the most moving ceremonies that I have ever been to. Following the wedding ceremony, we headed to the Norman Bird Sanctuary in Middletown for photos. We were worried since it had poured rain all morning, but it stopped just in time for photos! The Norman Bird Sanctuary is the perfect place for traditional “New England” wedding photos: stone walls, large trees, etc.  After photos, we finished the day with the reception at the Newport Yachting Center.  Events are always run so well there, and their wedding coordinators and staff are so kind! When I was driving out of the parking lot, one staff member even ran over to clean off my windshield because it had fogged up! Definitely one of my favorite places for a wedding in Newport. Enjoy the photos!

Andrea + Michael’s Providence Wedding Photos

Andrea and Michael began their day by getting ready at the Renaissance Hotel in Providence, where they also held their reception.  Andrea got ready with all of her bridesmaids and flower girls, who were very excited for the wedding! It was so cute…they couldn’t stop giggling!

Couples always ask me if it’s necessary to have a second photographer- the answer is if you can splurge for one, do it! Look at these beautiful shots my second photographer George Rivera  caught waiting in the back of the church with Andrea, while I was standing at the front of the church photographing the processional.  How great it was to capture both the moments prior to Andrea walking down the aisle, as well as the smiling faces of everyone walking towards Mike. Since I can’t be in two places at one time, I’m so glad we were able to capture both angles for Andrea and Mike (who decided last minute to upgrade their package so that they could have a second photographer!). Without George there, these photos in the back of the church wouldn’t have been possible. By the way, their ceremony was at the GORGEOUS First Unitarian Church in Providence!

Whenever I am hired to photograph a wedding at the Hope Club or the First Unitarian Church, I always recommend that couples book the John Brown House for couples portraits. It costs $200, and is so worth it- look at the beautiful backgrounds it offers! And it’s just a block away!
