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!

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…

A ton of you got engaged this year…

Cassandra & Paul | Bittersweet Farm Westport, MA Wedding

As a wedding photographer you pretty much always look forward to your weddings. You get to know the couple over the course of a year with their family and their relationships. It all comes together beautifully in the end. For Cassandra & Paul I enjoyed everything just a little bit more than usual. Cassandra was a referral bride from another client of mine, Tanna. Anytime a bride comes to me from another client, I am instantly more excited than usual. Not only did Tanna send Cassandra my way but Tanna was actually the MOH which made this day even better! To top it all off, Cassandra & Paul got married at one of my favorite venues: Bittersweet Farm

Bittersweet was one of the first ever venues I got to photograph at professionally on one of my first ever weddings (Alice & Josh for those of you who've been around awhile). I absolutely love the farm feel, mixed with the amazing food and beautiful ceremony location. It couldn't be a better place to tie the knot for these two.

Cassandra & Paul - Thank you for allowing me to document your day and spend time with you, your family and your friends. Jenn and I truly had a blast and we can't wait to show you more.

For now, here's a sneak peek! 
 

A special shoutout to all of those who made Cassandra & Paul's day possible:

Peter & Anna | A backyard wedding

Last month, Jenn and I thought we'd have the month off and free from all the wedding madness. That was until Peter emailed me and told me about his backyard wedding that he was planning just a few weeks away. At first, their thought was to DIY everything they could. They soon realized that their wedding photos are the only thing that they'll have leftover and that's a bit scary to leave in the hands of a friend or family member. Plus - they wanted everyone to enjoy their day, especially their guests. 

Peter is a screen writer, and Anna a teacher. I quickly got to know these two and their story. I was blown away at how much these two were in love. I get to meet a lot of couples and all of them truly are in love but Peter & Anna we're on a whole new level. They were madly in love with one another and it was so infectious and inspirational. I look up to these two and the story they've already created. They're each other's best friend, confidant, and lover. Their day was something I was looking forward to all month. It was so special, intimate and just plain perfect. I'll stop talking and let the photos speak for themselves. 

Thank you both for allowing me to be apart of your special day and capture it in a true document format. You are amazing and I can't wait to show you the rest!

Meet: Peter & Anna

Kaylah & Josh | Engagement Session in Lincoln, RI

Whenever a couple tells me they're adventurous, I jump at the opportunity to do something fun for their photos. One thing I mention to them all the time is that these photos should feel like them. It shouldn't be posed and fake. If you don't go to the beach, why are we going to take your photos on the beach? If you're not city people why would we go downtown and take your engagement session photos there? I encourage couple's to always choose a spot or a location that means something to them, or at least gives them an opportunity to do something they love. 

Josh & Kaylah love to hike and be outdoors. We spoke about doing a session at their favorite hiking spot in New Hampshire but then decided we could probably get that same look and feel someplace closer. I think we hit it right on the nail. Lincoln Woods provided the perfect backdrop to what is now some of my favorite Lovebird Session photos. I hope you enjoy this little sneak peek into their love story. 

Justine & Jeffrey | Wannamoisett Country Club Wedding

This past month I had the pleasure to photograph these two. After many dinners together and lots of good laughs, it was finally time to capture the next chapter in their story together. I had such a blast. These two seriously know how to throw an amazing party. Their bridal party and family made it extra fun too. I hope you all enjoy a sneak preview into Justine & Jeffrey's wedding!  I can't wait to show you more but for now...

Lauren & Josh: Quidnessett Country Club Wedding

Here we go! It's the very first wedding blog of 2017! Who's excited to see a sneak preview into Lauren & Josh's beautiful day? I know I am! I was so excited to photograph their story way back when they first booked me last year. We quickly got to know one another, had an awesome Lovebird Session and before you know it we were at their beautiful day, smiling ear-to-ear and having a great time. 

Their wedding was at the amazing Quidnessett Country Club, a venue that I actually never had the chance to photograph at. However, I believe that gave me the advantage and a fresh eye! We had a blast with their wedding party, their family (especially Lauren's grandma who was on the floor from start to finish with some AWESOME dance moves), and their friends. Lauren & Josh sure know how to throw a party. Jenn and I even got on the dance floor and shared a few dances with everyone! We had a blast but more importantly, they had a blast and their photographs clearly show that. 

I can't wait to show everyone the rest but for now, here's a sneak preview! 

With love,
Ryan

Kristal & Lellie | In home wedding

Kristal & Lellie have been good friends of mine since the day I moved into my new apartment complex. Residents themselves, we frequently got together during the summer for cookouts on the patio, relaxing days with wine coolers, and lovely time in the sun. It was only fitting that when I found out they were engaged, I told them to give me a ring when they planned their big day. About a month ago, they gave me a call and told me their plans. Although it might not be what they originally wanted, they wanted to be officially married as soon as possible. Although it wasn't a huge party - they still had a blast and honestly, it was one of the most intimate "Weddings" I've ever experienced. They had just their immediate friends and family there along with myself and a few other residents. Overall maybe 15 people tops. It set the scene for a fun-filled afternoon that they'd never forget. 

I can't thank Kristal & Lellie enough. For their love, for their support and for allowing me to capture this special time. I hope you enjoy this sneak peek of their day :)

Nicole & Shaun | Lyman Estate Waltham, MA Wedding

Well it’s come to that time. The last wedding of 2016. Well, technically we have a wedding coming up at the end of this month on New Years Eve, but we figured we’d classify that one as the first one of 2017 ;) 

Nicole & Shaun are some of the sweetest people I know. I’m starting to feel like I say that about all my clients, but it's true. Nicole is pretty much a woman version of me: Totally into music, theatre, and is high energy, extremely outgoing and loving. Shaun is the complete opposite: He’s a Irish fisherman (yes, he’s really Irish) who loves fishing, quiet moments, and good beer, obviously. However he has the warmest heart. I remember last year during Nicole & Shaun’s Lovebird Session in Salem, we all went out for drinks after and Shaun showed so much interest in who I was and what I do. He may be quiet and a man of few words but, once you get to know this gentlemen you realize that he cares deeply about every single person in his life, especially Nicole. 

Their love was radiant on their day of. They couldn’t have asked for a better November day. The Lyman Estate provided the perfect backdrop for their story together. We got to photograph all over the grounds - including the greenhouse, which was magical! Jenn and I wanted to approach this wedding a little differently so we brought out our 16mm, fisheye lens because we knew it would make for the perfect reception shots.  These two seriously knew how to throw a party along with their amazing DJ Chuck Borowy. 

I had a blast and couldn’t of asked for a better night. There is so much I want to share but, for now, enjoy this sneak peek of Nicole & Shaun’s big day!

With love,
Ryan
