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.

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.

Loryn & Ricky | Engagement Photography

When an old friend of mine Lindsay, contacted me about gifting a Lovebird session to her sister who recently got engaged, I was so excited. I photographed Lindsay back early in my "photography career" when we were both in high school. She was one of my first ever senior portraits. Till this day it's still on her Facebook (which is so fun for me to look back on). If Loryn is anything like her sister, she'd be so fun to photograph and boy did we have a great time! 

Loryn & Ricky live up in Deerfield, MA. A place that holds a special spot in my heart since I went to school next to Deerfield. The Berkshires and western MA are an absolute perfect backdrop for any occasion, especially an engagement session. We took photos with their amazing pup, then braved Mt. Sugarloaf,  and then ended the session the same way we end every session in the summer, with ice cream (I know, right?!). We had a blast together and I'm so happy with how these turned out. Clearly Loryn & Ricky are absolutely in love. I hope you all enjoy this little sneak peak into their session together. 

 

 

Molly & Brian | Colt State Park Engagement Session

I love when couple's are down for anything. When they don't care if it's cold out, windy, snowing or raining and they're just down for the adventure. To be honest, those are the photos that us photographers rarely get the chance to take. We never get to go out during a blizzard, we never get to go out when it's raining, and we never get to go to these crazy locations that wouldn't make sense. It's always the same old same old. So when Molly contacted me and told me she wanted to do a Lovebird Session in January by the water, I was so pumped. Since Molly & Brian are from NJ, Jenn and I scoped out a location that fit these two and Colt State Park in Bristol, where Molly & Brian will soon be in a few months to be married, seemed like the perfect spot.

Their session turned out perfect! Sure, it was cloudy, a bit cold and windy but we braved the elements and seriously rocked it! I'm in love with the way these two showed pure emotion, love, and happiness during their time with me. I'm also in love with the way these turned out. It's a bit new to us but I'm loving the style that we were able to pull off.

Enjoy!

Ashley & Patrick | Slater Mill Pawtucket, RI Wedding

Ashley & Patrick's New Years Eve wedding couldn't have been more fun. When these two met with me and told me that they were both theatre lovers like myself, I knew we would instantly become friends. Their wedding, was nothing short of magical. From their gorgeous ceremony with gargoyles and standing tree's to their awesome venue (Slater Mill) providing the perfect backdrop, these two seriously knew how to throw a party.

Jenn and I normally don't do anything super exciting for New Years. So this year when we found out that we'd be working, we we're pretty excited to celebrate the day with two people who we love and care for. We hope you enjoy this sneak peek of Ashley & Patrick's awesome New Year's Eve wedding :)
