Lara and Joczan's Riverview wedding in Simsbury!

The day was perfect for Lara and Joczan's wedding!  Sunny skies, a warm breeze and a beautiful ceremony.  And that's where the "usual" wedding stuff ends!  Oh my goodness, the PARTY that was their day!  We started quietly in the bridal prep area.  Girls getting ready, hair and makeup, you know, the usual.  But as the ceremony grew closer there was an energy like a big rubber band was being methodically twisted, storing its energy in anticipation.  The ceremony was a wonderful sharing of stories, nuptials, laughs and happy tears.  Then, when we started formals, that rubber band was let go and the energy ramped up like you wouldn't believe!  Joking, laughing, hugging, people just connecting in the way that only truly happy families can.  It really was one of those weddings that you start shooting in the morning and before you know it, it's over and your head is spinning with all that you got to witness!!!

One of the things I truly loved about Lara and Joczan's wedding was the vibe of families coming together under the umbrella of love created by a really great couple.  I would really like to party with you guys one day!!! Thanks for having me!

Allison and David's Late Spring Wedding & Maneely's!!!

On May 25th, 2014, thunderstorms were passing through the region and I spent the morning watching the weather forecasts.  By no means do I see a rainy wedding day as a bad thing.  There are plenty of cool options photographically speaking, but thunderstorms can bring a little bit of trepidation! As fate would have it, the storms passed to the north and south of Allison and David's wedding! 

It was a blast shooting with them!  All weddings leave you with some sort of feeling.  Sometimes, you can't quite put your finger on it and other times it's so strong that it leaves you with a feeling that you wish you could do it again.  The day was so happy, so low-key and focused on love that I wish I could bottle that to sip on from time to time!

What we did get that we can take away and revisit, was great images.  Allison and David, thanks so much for having me on your wedding day :)

Audrey and John's Rhode Island wedding ending at Wannamoisett CC

    As the title suggests, I had the pleasure of shooting Audrey and John's wedding a couple weeks ago!  We started with getting ready and headed to the church up in Smithfield, RI then headed to Wannamoisett Country Club for the reception.  What an amazing day we had.  I've been blessed to have met and been part of the biggest day of so many fantastic couples!  Audrey and John continue my luck in being able to work not only with great brides and grooms, but great families and their friends.

    I was invited countless times to continue the party with these guys.  After spending the day with this moderately crazy wedding party, I must say it was difficult to decline the offer.  Audrey and John have surrounded themselves with a truly happy group of people.  What I learned about these people that day: blow up alien dolls are WAY fun; a merry-go-round ride (or carousel as Rhode Islanders call them) should not be constrained to simply riding a wooden horse in a circle; and finally, family comes first.

  What a great day, thank you Audrey and John!
