Jane and Albert’s Blithewold Mansion Wedding in Bristol, RI

Jane and Albert were married at the beautiful Blithewold Mansion in Bristol, Rhode Island.  It is stunning…water views and amazing gardens, and of course, a mansion! From a photographer’s point of view, it is the perfect place for a variety of wedding portraits.  And that is exactly what Jane and Al wanted. They set aside so much time for photos…it was great! We weren’t rushed at all, and it gave us time to walk all over the property for beautiful shots.  Their day began with a first look.  Jane looked so beautiful, and Al immediately became emotional. First look photos are always a favorite of mine. From there, we spent about an hour taking just bride and groom portraits before the ceremony. The light was absolutely perfect: there was a cloud cover and it was early evening, so you could see the sun peeking through the clouds. Had it been sunny, these photos would look drastically different. This kind of light is a photographer’s dream! I wish the light were this perfect for every wedding!! Congratulations Jane and Al; enjoy the photos!

A BIG Announcement!

Well, as you might be able to guess from the photo below….I’m expecting! Baby BOY (!!!) is due around the holidays.  I couldn’t be more thrilled! For so long, I have photographed so many families and babies, and it’s hard to believe that I will now have a little one of my own to photograph!

So what does this mean for my clients? It means that fall family portrait sessions are going to be VERY limited this year, as I need to allow myself time to edit all of the sessions and deliver them in time for the holidays (and before I give birth).  Because birth is unpredictable, I will be scheduling sessions up to November 9th, but not any later. I will be accepting 8 October sessions, and once October is fully booked, opening up 4 November sessions if the weather cooperates….but that’s it!  Because I will be scheduling fewer sessions for fall, session dates will only be held with an e-signed studio policies contract and a non-refundable paid session fee (all done online and via Paypal), and must be submitted within 24 hours of being sent.

Ready to book your fall family portrait session?!?! Well, if you’d like peak fall foliage, then I suggest scheduling your session between October 13th and October 28th, as these weeks have been predicted to have the best foliage! And it sure is pretty in photographs, isn’t it??

Engagement sessions are also gorgeous in the foliage, too!!

If you don’t have availability during the peak fall foliage weeks, what about an apple orchard? Apple orchards all look very “fall-ish” and can be photographed at any time in September-November.

Even the city has some nice spots with foliage!

Gina and Paul’s Blithewold Mansion Wedding in Bristol, RI

BlithewoldWeddingPhotos_002 Gina and Paul were married on a gorgeous day at Blithewold Mansion in Bristol, Rhode Island.  It was honestly perfect weather: low humidity, just enough cloud cover to make a photographer happy, not too hot, but not too cold.  Gina started the day with hair and makeup by the fabulous M.A.W. Beauty. Melissa, the stylist, even stayed throughout pictures for touchups to make sure Gina always looked perfect! BlithewoldWeddingPhotos_003 BlithewoldWeddingPhotos_004 BlithewoldWeddingPhotos_005 BlithewoldWeddingPhotos_006 BlithewoldWeddingPhotos_007 BlithewoldWeddingPhotos_008 BlithewoldWeddingPhotos_009 BlithewoldWeddingPhotos_010 After hair and makeup, we headed to beautiful Colt State Park in Bristol for the first look, a few bride/groom portraits, and all of Gina and Paul’s family portraits. It was so nice to be able to do all of these before the ceremony so that Gina and Paul could attend cocktail hour and visit with their guests!

BlithewoldWeddingPhotos_027Once we arrived at Blithewold, we wandered around the amazing gardens and grounds for more bride and groom photos with just Gina and Paul.Having portraits of the two of them was a big priority, so they made sure to schedule enough time in their day to have many!
