Jessica & Nick | Newport Vineyards

What can I not say about Jessica & Nick? When Jess & Nick first contacted me, we immediately clicked on the phone and it felt like we’ve been best friends ever since. From their engagement shoot at Coppa, to multiple talks over the phone, and even an invitation to join them for their cake tasting (which oh em gee, it was amazing) I was so ecstatic to finally be able to photograph these two amazing people on a day where we celebrated them and their love.

I get close to my couples. But every year or so there’s always one couple that I tend to become bff’s with, the couple that not only hires me because I do great work, but because they know we’d make best friends. The couple that actually doesn’t mind getting together for dinner or drinks as a matter of fact, they’re excited too. They don’t just think I’m their photographer. They’re just as invested in me as I am with them. This year Nick & Jess was that couple.

I can go off for hours and tell you how their love story went but, I think the photos will speak for themselves. Instead I’d rather tell you what these two mean to me: I’ve never felt more cared for or loved by a couple. Jessica & Nick, you both are the most loving, selfless, and caring people I know. Throughout our whole process you loved hearing more about Jenn & I’s adventures than about your wedding. You sat with me and helped me plan out our engagement, you comforted me when I was worried to call Jenn’s mom, and you were there for us as soon as we got back from our trip, excited to hear about our adventures even though your wedding was a week away. You have cared more about me than any other couple has in all my years of photographing. You made me feel loved. You made me feel special, and you made me feel like your best friend. To be honest, I needed you more than you needed me. I cried when you were reading your vows to one another, during your first dance, and during your toasts. Your family and friends agree that you two are the most selfless people they know as well. You are always there for everyone around you and never questioning it. In this past year, I have seen it over and over again. So instead of you two thanking me for documenting your story, let me be the first to say thank YOU for allowing me to get to know such amazing, genuine, beautiful people. Thank YOU for allowing ME to capture and document this journey together. And thank you for always being there for me. Even if we’ve only known each other for a year now…I have a feeling we’re going to be best friends for a lifetime.

I seriously am honored for you all to meet this beautiful couple: Jessica & Nick.

Hilary & Chris | Newport Vineyards

Well the time has finally come! It’s 2018 and the wedding season has begun. We couldn’t be happier that we started the season off with this beautiful couple at one of our favorite venues, Newport Vineyards.

Hilary & Chris choose to have an intimate wedding with 60 of their closest family and friends. Their day couldn’t have gone any smoother. The weather held up, the reception rocked and the photos came out stunning.

Special thanks to all the vendors who worked with us that day to create such a picture-perfect day for them!

Congratulations to the beautiful bride & groom!

Meet: Hilary & Chris

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!

Jessica & Kyle | Alpine Country Club Cranston, RI Wedding

On a rainy October day Jessica & Kyle stepped out to tie the knot. Little did they know that by the afternoon and right before their ceremony, the sun would come out and warm us all up a bit!

These two were so much fun to get to know over the last year. Their wedding was a blast and I had an amazing time documenting their day. To photographing both of them getting ready, to then their first look at Roger Williams Park then to their venue, The Alpine Country Club which provided even more beautiful backdrops for images, I couldn't be happier with the result. 

I hope you all enjoy this sneak peek!

Molly & Brian | Mount Hope Farm in Bristol, RI Wedding

Every season I tend to walk away from at least one wedding thinking "dang, that was one heck of a night. I had a blast!". As a wedding photographer I attended a lot of weddings. Probably more than anyone will in their whole lifetime will and every single wedding tends to be a boatload of fun. However there is always one each year that rocks my socks off. This year, it happened to be Molly & Brian's wedding.

I met Molly & Brian over a year ago and remembered talking to them and instantly clicking. We hit it off quickly, got to know one another over lunch, Skype calls and more over the past year and finally - Their day had arrived. It felt like just the other day that we were photographing at Colt State Park in the dead of winter for their engagement photos (which turned out awesome by the way! Check them out here). Finally the day arrived, the clouds cleared and their beautiful fall wedding was here. Set up at Mount Hope Farm, they couldn't have asked for a better venue and backdrop. The ceremony location was absolutely draw dropping, the tent right next to the water was so New England and paired well with Molly's childhood memories of sailing with her dad on their boat in Rhode Island. The band, Kahootz absolutely KILLED IT with the entertainment for the night. Nobody left the dance floor. I even got down and dirty at one point (photos below to prove it). I also may have snuck in singing a song or two. Speaking of - Molly is a voice instructor in NYC, which made this wedding 10x better. From vocals from her bff's during the ceremony, to Molly singing a song to Brian and bringing everything to tears, to the surprise speech her sister gave in song, this wedding was clearly a musical in real life, and I loved every second of it. 

Enough about these two. Check out their sneak peek below.

Rachel & Brad | The Providence Biltmore Wedding Providence, RI

There are times in this industry where we meet clients and we just know right off the batt that we're going to be best of friends with them afterwards. Not because they love our work, not because they love who we are but because we just click together. When I met Rachel & Brad, I knew that we would be the best friends and that their wedding would be nothing short of magical. Boy was I right. 

To the day of where we started the day photographing Rachel getting ready in The Biltmore's suite, to their amazing and breathtaking first look, and their ballroom, black tie reception - Everything was absolutely perfect. These two seriously know how to throw a party. Everyone was on the dance floor that night! Their band Decades by Dezyne, gave us the best music to groove to. I'm pretty sure I was shaking my booty in the corner all night. 

Not only did Rachel & Brad know how to throw a good party but they we're amazing friends throughout this whole experience.  This past weekend Jenn and I had a family emergency come up and Rachel was sure to text me today and make sure everything was ok. Its clients like Rachel & Brad that make me smile and happy to do this. Thank you both for such an amazing time, for being loving, kind and caring and for choosing us to capture your special day. 

For now, here's a sneak peek of Rachel & Brad's wedding:

Anthony & Amanda | The Villa Wedding East Bridgewater, MA

Anthony, Amanda and I met last summer and instantly clicked. I remember when I walked them out of our apartment, I got a phone call 5 min later from Amanda (who was still in our parking lot) She said "Yeah, I love you and don't want anyone else to photograph our day" . I smiled from ear to ear. These two were amazing to get to know over the course of a year. Their wedding was nothing short of that either. The rain might've forced us to have the ceremony inside, but we did manage to sneak outside to take some beautiful photos. I couldn't be happier with how they've turned out and can't wait to show you more! For now I hope you all enjoy this sneak peek of Amanda & Anthony's beautiful day :)

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

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
