{PORTRAITS} Angela, Paulo and Olivia in Newport, RI

I photographed Angela & Paulo’s wedding way back in 2008, so I was thrilled and honored to be invited back to document another major milestone in their life.  It’s extremely fulfilling to me as a photographer to document my past couples new additions.

Here they are in October 2008!:


And here they are today in 2013 with their adorable daughter, Olivia!!:

{ENGAGED!} Jessica & Kevin in Newport, RI

Jessica and Kevin came in on a beautiful evening in May.  We toured some of my favorite places to shoot and even visited the front gates of the Breakers Mansion where Kevin proposed!  I can’t wait to photograph their wedding next month at Belle Mer!  Jessica & Kevin have great style and are super sweet, so I know their wedding is going to be beautiful and fun! 

{JUST MARRIED!!} Katie & Dominick at Regatta Place • Newport, RI

Katie and Dominick were married on Saturday of Memorial Day weekend……err should I say Thanksgiving Weekend???  Let me tell you, it felt more like November then it did May!  30 mph gusts of wind coupled with highs around 45 degrees and showers.  But you wouldn’t know it from looking at these pictures!!  Katie, Dominick, their wedding party, family and friends took in all in stride!  Nothing was going to get in the way of our good time!!  You can’t control the weather, so you have to make the best of it (and rent a FABULOUS indoor photo location, like Villa 120!!!)

Katie had a great idea of doing a balloon “first sight” which just photographed so well!  (Nice idea, Katie!!)  There was so much expression on the porch as Katie greeted Dominick for the first time, I was so happy to have Jefferson shooting away with me to capture it all.  (I included lots of these images so you can see for yourselves!)  This wedding makes my heart happy because all the elements were there: amazing and expressive couple, friendly family members, great colors, beautiful details, the couple’s dog, and 2 adorable flower girls who hammed it up for me all day!  And Katie & Dominick’s dog, Trixie, has her own Facebook page.  Come on, how great is that?!?

Be sure to check out the very last image of this entry to see the brand new strings of lights Regatta Place just hung this year!  I love new elements to play with at venues I have lots of past experience at.  Nice touch!!

{Flash Back Friday} Elizabeth & Ian at the Glen Manor House • Portsmouth, RI

Today’s “Flash Back Friday” features the most perfect, quintessential Glen Manor House wedding in Portsmouth, Rhode Island from July 2012.  Elizabeth & Ian were so relaxed and easy to photograph.  As a Glen Manor House bride myself, I think Elizabeth chose all the perfect colors and décor that make the Glen shine it all it’s glory.
