Karen and Phil wedding at the Towers in Narragansett

It was a very stormy day for Karen and Phil on their wedding day in Narragansett. But while the skies were dark the spirits were bright! And despite the weather we had a wonderful day and this beautiful couple ended the day as a married couple! The wedding ceremony was supposed to take place outside but that soon became clear that it simply wasn’t an option…

But we adjusted and moved it inside the Towers, no problem. It was a great day hosted at the Towers in Narragansett RI

The Flowers were by Weedweavers from Wakefield RI Beautiful as always Elaine!

Anna and Jason

These Portraits are of a family about to be! I love photographing engagement photos because of the excitement and anticipation in the air! We are all very excited about the upcoming wedding for Anna and Jason at the Towers in Narragansett! Wooo Hoo. And I believe we created some truly beautfiul portraits that I am very proud of!

Side note: Anna and Jason had spent all day in the sun the day we did these photos and both got pretty sunburned and were in quite a bit of pain because of it… But they were both troopers and it ended up being ok, mostly because they had wonderful attitudes about it all… S

Aunt Carrie’s in Narragansett

I just had a wonderful Lobster sandwich from Aunt Carrie’s in Narragansett! If you don’t know about Aunt Carrie’s then you obviously aren’t a Rhode Islander…

The folks down there asked me to make a few post cards of some of my Rhode Island Images and put up some photos as well. I was very excited and honored to do this. I just dropped off a beautiful photo of the Towers in Narragansett and am making another of the Newport Bridge as we speak. Here is the photo I put up, go down to the New Aunt Carries Icecream shop and see it there!

How to create a beautiful wedding portrait

First and foremost a good portrait comes from 2 main places in my opinion. 1st understanding photography, the fundamentals of light and composition has to be in place. But then you have to understand people and how to make them feel comfortable… I am writing about the 1st part. If you need help with the people part, I can’t help you. But if you can’t get someone to relax in front of the camera 99% of the time it is the photographers fault… not the subject

😉

The photo you see here was taken in a hotel room. I was standing on a chair with a large window to my left. I had one of the brides maids hold up the brides dress high behind her to make a pleasing background and to bounce a little light back at her. This is all natural light. ISO 100 1/90th shutter and 1.8 Aperature on a 50mm lens. Here is a photo of me taking this photo to give you a perspective

Marcia and Tom wedding at the Towers

I had the distinct honor of photographing a wedding on Sunday at the Towers in Narragansett Rhode Island. Marcia and Tom are a lovely couple that I met a couple of years ago when I photographed Tom’s brother being inducted into the marine corps. Since then I photographed a family portrait for them as well. As what happens often for me when I spend time with families at these wonderful junctures in their lives I feel so connected to them, and their well-being. We originally had this wedding set for Oct. when Tom’s brother Tim was ordered to go to Afghanistan in July. So we moved the wedding ahead in order for him to attend. (side note: please be safe and come home quickly Tim)
