Michelle & Wesley - Maternity Session | Roger Williams Botanical Center

When I first started this business I had a vision in mind: I wanted to be my client's one and only photographer for the rest of their life. Not because I was greedy or didn't want them to cheat on me but, because we build that trust with our client's right in the beginning of their journey with us. We lay down the foundation for our relationship to be more than just a business transaction and more of a friendship. So after their wedding when it comes time to photograph the new addition to the family, they know exactly who to call. They call us because they trust us. We already know their story up to this point and for us, it's a new chapter in their great adventure. I couldn't be happier to tell you that so far, this vision of mine has come true. 

Michelle & Nick got married 2 years ago. After their success with their adorable puppy, it was time to bring on another member of the family. When Michelle told me she was pregnant, she followed up with: "I can't wait for you to take my maternity photos" and to be honest, I couldn't wait either. I know a lot of you don't know that I still photograph portraits but I absolutely LOVE these sessions. Like I mentioned before they make the perfect addition to your story and document where you are in your family, relationship or anything of the sort. Michelle and I originally thought we'd take these photos outside on a snowy day in the woods but Mother Nature had other plans. With our unbelievable high temperatures lately we decided to go a different route and photograph in the Roger Williams Botanical Center (photographer's be warned, this place was a bit of a hassle to get into as they're not very welcoming to taking professional photos inside). The result was pure magic. 

Michelle & Nick - Thank you for allowing me to document the next chapter in your story together. I cannot wait for Wesley to be born and for us to take his first ever photographs. 

With love,
Ryan

2017 in Photographs

2017 brought us new adventures, happiness, and so much more. It was one crazy year and I can't believe it's already over. This year we delivered over 15,000 images to more than 25 clients. Thank you to all the clients who allowed us to document their story this year. I do this all for you. Your stories, love and support are what keeps me going. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. 

Here is a look back on 2017...


I got to photograph two of my best friends in the back of a pickup truck. Which I stole from my uncle and drove over 40 miles just to do so.

We returned to our roots and photographed your family. Even if that meant going out a day after a blizzard rolled in.

Molly & Brian | Metacomet Country Club Wedding

Here we are folks...The last wedding of 2017. Jenn and I can't thank all of the amazing couples, families and friends that we had the honor to photograph this year. Without you, this ship would've sank a long time ago. Your love stories are what keeps me going. We still have some lovebird sessions to post but we wrapped up the wedding season with Molly & Brian and their AMAZING, down right awesome wedding party. We honestly couldn't have asked for a better couple to close out the season. This wedding had it ALL! Molly & Brian met at Providence College and it was just the perfect spot to them bring them back full circle and get married. Marring your love one where you once met all those years ago seriously made the day feel magical. I had no idea Providence College was so beautiful! Their church on campus made for the ceremony's beautiful photos and PC's draw dropping campus made for stunning photos of Molly & Brian! After tying the knot we headed to Metacomet Country Club where we were blown away with beautiful fall views of their golf corse. The staff at Metacomet was so accommodating to our team that I honestly can't thank them enough! Molly & Brian's band choice, Young Love and the Thrills blew the roof off during the reception and had EVERYONE on the dance floor all night. At one point, Brian's mom even tied together some napkins and made a giant jump rope and had everyone join in. Although I wanted to include every single photo from their day, I had to cut back just a bit for now.

It's weddings like Molly & Brian's that make me love what I do. I hope you enjoy these sneak peeks.

With love,
Ryan
