Casey + Karl's Castle Hill Inn Wedding

The weather for my spring weddings has been AMAZING. Every single wedding thus far this spring has been sunny and above average temps for spring. Casey and Karl's wedding was especially warm....more like summer at 80 degrees (in May!!). As I fly back and forth between Michigan and Rhode Island to shoot weddings, the good weather seems to follow me in that anywhere I'm working, the weather is gorgeous.

Casey and Karl were married at Castle Hill Inn in Newport, RI. It's breathtaking, on a cliff overlooking the ocean and the Pell bridge. Casey's hair and makeup were by the fabulous Allison Barbera and team, who makes the makeup look so incredibly natural, and Casey's hair held the entire evening. The beautiful flowers on the arbor, centerpieces on the tables and bouquets were by Sayles Livingston. Exquisite Events was also on site for event design. Lastly, the band Silver Arrow provided the music for both the ceremony and the reception, and it was fantastic. The lead vocalist was incredible! Also, big thank you to my assistant Sara who captured some of the groomsmen and food/detail shots!

All in all, it was a perfect day. Casey and Karl, thank you for having me as your photographer, and have an amazing time in Bora Bora!! Congratulations!

Ashley + Keith's Jamestown RI Engagement Photos

Ashley wanted dramatic for their engagement photos, and the weather Gods obliged, rolling in thick fog the afternoon of their shoot in beautiful Jamestown, Rhode Island. We almost cancelled, fearing the fog would actually be too thick and conceal the water, but Ashley gave the green light, and we went for it and I am SO glad that we did! The results are moody and dramatic- just as Ashley wanted, and being that she and Keith had come in from NYC and weren't able to reschedule, I am thrilled that she pushed me to shoot in weather I would normally cancel for. They got photos that they love, and I was challenged- which is what I love about working in photography- rarely do you have a "normal" day at the "office" when shooting. Can't wait for their wedding in Newport this summer!

Katie and Mike's Newport Engagement Photos

Katie and Mike chose to have their engagement session in Newport, where their wedding will be held next summer.  We almost had to cancel, as it was raining off and on all day. Since they were driving down from Boston, I wanted to be cautious, but they said let's go for it, and I'm so glad they did! We had beautiful light, and the pictures turned out amazing! 

It was also a great night because it was the first time I got to meet Katie and Mike in person! Like so many couples these days, they booked me over the phone. I was happy to see that they were just as laid back and sweet as they were on the phone :) . I'm thrilled to be shooting their Belle Mer wedding next July!
