Samantha & Michael | Newport Officers Club Wedding

It’s not everyday we get to go into a full on navy base to photograph a wedding but if there was a spot for that to happen, it would obviously be in Newport, RI. Samantha & Mike’s wedding was absolutely stunning last month at The Newport Officers Club. The rain held off for a day and gave us a beautiful backdrop of the Newport Bridge and an incredible reception. We’re so excited to share a couple of sneak peeks while we get to work on the rest of their gallery!

Liz & Phil | The Bohlin Newport, RI Wedding

After our couples book with us, we normally meet up plenty of times before the wedding to not only go over everything and make sure that we’re all prepared for the day ahead but more importantly to get to know our couples, their story and their families. Over the past 8 years there’s only been a couple of exceptions where we’re usually unable to do so but when we arrive on the wedding day, it’s like we’ve been getting together all along. Liz & Phil were one of those exceptions.

Jenn, Oksana and I had an absolute blast documenting their day as it unfolded. It was almost like we were documenting our best friend. The Bohlin in Newport, RI provided the perfect backdrop for their incredible summery, coastal vibe and their wedding party, family and friends were some of the absolute nicest people on the planet.

We’re so excited to share this sneak peek of their day. If you’d like to know when their full wedding gallery is live, sign up here!

Christina & Alex | Providence City Hall Elopement

I am SO excited to show you Christina & Alex’s elopement. We’ve photographed a lot of weddings and out of all the venue’s we’ve been to, Providence City Hall might be my favorite. It’s so special and unique and it photographs beautifully. Christina and Alex’s story is honestly incredible. They met in Boston and it was pretty unexpected. Christine was in boston celebrating a friend’s birthday and Alex was visiting the city from Spain for work. To this day they’re still arguing who bumped into who but regardless, that bump jump started their relationship. Since then, a million Whatsapp messages have been exchanged, dozens of postcards and letters in the mail, and countless plane rides back and forth across the Atlantic. It wasn’t too long because it was clear to both of them that it was time to bridge the gap and start a life and home together.

Heather & Chris | Clarke Cooke House Wedding

Here it is! The first “official” wedding of 2019. However, Heather and Chris did things totally different for their day and instead of throwing a big, huge extravagant wedding, they threw an incredible intimate dinner party with their closest friends and family. If we’re being honest, that’s some of our favorite days to photograph. We had an incredible night with these two and cannot thank them enough for allowing us to photograph such an important day.

Molly & Michael | Beavertail State Park Engagement Session

Boy am I excited to share these with you.

We’ve been to Beavertail before and almost all the time, I hope and pray before the session that the couple is adventurous enough to know what I’m about to ask them to do. Beavertail isn’t just any run off the mill type of park, it’s rocky, wavy, and pretty dangerous at times but boy, the results are incredible. Molly & Michael braved the BRISK winds after a rainy weekend and we’re not only adventurous but they were EXCITED and up for the challenge. They even braved it down a STEEP cliff into a little beach cove where we got some pretty incredible photographs. If these two are just as much on their wedding day as they were for our Lovebird Session, I am SO excited to photograph their big day.

Meet: Molly & Michael


Allie & Dan | Narragansett RI Elopement

When we get contacted to photograph an elopement, we get so excited. It combines all the things we love about a wedding in a more intimate setting with just a handful of the couple’s closest family and friends. While we’ve only done a couple of these, they’re turning out to be some of our favorites to photograph.

Allie & Dan’s love story is remarkable. They met while in León, Nicaragua in early 2014. . Allie was staying on a friend’s couch in a house where Dan sometimes used the refrigerator (it’s a long story). Soon after meeting, they began finding any opportunity to see each other. Both spending their days volunteering, they passed weekends traveling on hot, crowded buses to meet up at the beach, climb volcanoes, cycle on dirt roads, and talk for hours over tostones con queso.

Three short months after meeting, they parted ways in Nicaragua, not sure of what the future held but certain they would remain in one another’s lives. While Allie finished university in Boston and Dan pursued his qualifications in rock climbing in England, little by little they met each other’s worlds through visits with family and loved ones. It wasn’t all tearful Skype calls, though of those there were some — they continued to find adventures wherever life took them, whether to the southwest coast of England, Boston’s culture-clashing Freedom Trail, or the highest peak in the rainforests of Rwanda. 

After two years of long distance, they found that new and more long-term opportunities in Nicaragua were calling them back to the place where they first met. Dan set to work starting a sustainable adventure tour company and photography business, and Allie worked for a cooperative loan fund.

But most importantly, they were able to start a life and build a community together. Over those two years they welcomed family and friends to visit our home in León, and made so many more. They decided to spend the rest of our lives together after taking a look into their future and agreeing that they couldn’t imagine it any other way but learning and growing by each others’ sides. 

Allie & Dan tied the knot at a local park in Narragansett, RI. Although it was POURING out, they braved the weather and made it such an incredibly fun time. Nothing stopped these two. They ditched the umbrellas and even took a dip in the pool. We are SO HONORED to have captured their love story and this next chapter in their lives.

Meet: Allie & Dan

2018 in Photographs

If you’ve been following along, every new year’s eve we try and post a blog summarizing our year that we’ve had. 2018 had been absolutely incredible and that’s all thanks to the amazing support and love from you. This year we photographed over 12 weddings, 9 portrait sessions and 8 lovebird sessions for a grand total of 29 this year. Each year I am blown away at how this business keeps growing and growing. From the bottom of my heart, thank you. 2018 has been so much fun and I cannot wait for 2019 and all the incredible stories we’ll get to document.


Here’s a look back on 2018…

Emily & Warren | Newport Vineyards Wedding, Newport RI

Every year we have a handful of couples that truly stand out above the rest. Couples that not only fall in love with our photographs but become true friends to Jenn and I. They’re usually the laid back type, the adventurous duo and are always up for a cup of coffee, lunch or dinner with us. Emily & Warren are definitely apart of that group. From the first breakfast date with them, I knew we’d be amazing friends. We shared a love for traveling, adventures, food, and so much more. When it became time to photograph their wedding day, I knew it was going to be perfect and boy, it sure was…

Emily & Warren got married at the amazing Newport Vineyards which combined their love for wine, and Rhode Island all in one. It turned out to be one of the best weather days we could’ve asked for with cloudy skies and cooler temps. It was a little rainy at the beginning portion of the day but as soon as the ceremony time came, the showers had passed and it was beautiful.

These photos mean a lot to me. Not only because Emily & Warren are client’s of ours, but because they’re client turned friends. I had such a hard time choosing specific edits to give them and really perfecting the photographs down to every last detail. However, I think you’ll see that these two are madly in love, and are perfect for one another. I can’t wait to show you more…but for now, enjoy these sneak peeks!

With love,
Ryan

Barbara & Brian | Publick House Historic Inn Wedding, Sturbridge MA

I couldn’t be more excited about this blog post. We met Barbara and Brian about a year ago over the phone. After we chatted it up for a good hour and a half, we realized we should’ve been friends long before wedding planning came around. We have the same free spirited mindset, love for music, bands, and even share a love for Sam Smith. To top it all off they’re foodies just like Jenn and I. When we finally met just at the beginning of this year it felt like we were just meeting up with friends we haven’t seen in awhile. If I was being honest, I could’ve hung out with them all damn day.

Barbara & Brian got married at The Publick House in Sturbridge, MA - A venue we’ve been to a couple of times before. However this time, it was totally different. The place turned into a magical oasis filled amazing family, friends, great music, awesome food and even a Teepee hut. Barbara was one of our most “chill” brides this year. There was a point in the day where she realized she forgot her wedding shoes. If it was any other bride, this would’ve turned into a huge meltdown. Barbara just shrugged her shoulders, laughed and said “Oh well, I guess we’re going barefoot!” It was at that point I knew that Barbara was definitely a client turned bff. These two were absolutely amazing throughout the whole night. They were so photogenic and it definitely all paid off. I am beyond thankful to have been apart of Barbara & Brian’s special day. Thank you two so much for allowing me to capture it and for being amazing friends to us. I hope you both love this sneak peek as much as I do.

With love,
Ryan & Jenn

Danielle & Bryan | Skyline at Waterplace Wedding | Providence, RI

I am so excited to show you Danielle & Bryan's wedding. We met up with these two back last fall for their Lovebird session and absolutely fell in love with their little family (their dog is adorable!). Their wedding was nothing short of amazing. From the beautiful ceremony to their amazing venue, Skyline at Waterplace, everything was perfect -- Including the weather! 

Danielle & Bryan, thank you for a fun filled day! We cannot wait to show you the rest from their wedding but until then we hope you enjoy this little sneak peek!
