Romantic and Timeless Newport Wedding at Rosecliff Mansion There are very few places in America as special as Newport, RI in my humble opinion. Not only is it a sentimental place for me, my husband and I visited for our honeymoon. The rich history, lavish buildings and reputation as a sailing mecca make this town […]

Steff and Evan are college sweethearts who met at a frat party at Penn State. While she thought she was interacting with a very tall handsome college student, she only had half the truth. Evan happened to be standing on a milk crate behind the bar, but his handsome looks remain. In all honesty, Steff […]

Every time we photograph a wedding, I leave feeling like we’ve made new friends, or even become part of a new family! Years ago I photographed Ashley’s friend’s wedding, and as a bridesmaid, Ashley got to know us! When Will proposed, she remembered us for her New England wedding. Because of those connections I make […]

Caroline and Ross had the perfect fall day for both their engagement and wedding day! I imagine they didn’t realize that the last day in September would have quite as much color as it did. Ross proposed to Caroline on a hike in the fall, surrounded by the fall changing leaves. On the wedding day, […]

Classically Neutral Elegant Wedding at Natirar There are just some wedding days that remind me of my first days photographing weddings. I started photographing weddings 18 years ago, so this takes me back quite a bit here. There are many fun trends and new traditions that my couples incorporate into their wedding days, and I […]

Americana Wedding Day at Natirar Cristin & Sean’s wedding day boasted a blend of two personalities. Their every day adventures came together into one beautifully timeless wedding at Natirar. How could incorporating their love of the city life and sports bars, specifically during football season; with the sentimental performance of “God Bless America,” complete with […]

It has been such a joy to be part of Victoria and Matt’s wedding journey from the beginning! Okay, almost the beginning. I was there for Matt’s proposal. You know that the bride has no idea she’s about to walk into her own proposal when she shows up with her mask on her wrist, air […]

Some of my favorite weddings are my favorite before they even happen. Kate and Matt’s wedding is one of those kinds of weddings. Having already photographed her sister’s wedding four years ago AND her best friend’s wedding one year ago, I was so excited to capture Kate and Matt’s wedding day. It’s so funny to […]

A Dreamy Hydrangea Blue Wedding at Natirar Mansion I have been looking forward to Kelly and Michael’s wedding for a long time now. A first wedding for both families, the entire event was a team effort for the bride, her Mom and her Mother-in-law. From the very first moment I met Kelly and Michael at […]

Timeless Estate Wedding at Natirar As I climbed Natirar’s steep hill last Saturday, I couldn’t help thinking about how perfect Amanda and Rob’s wedding day was. It hadn’t started yet – I had not even found Amanda in her makeup chair. The sun shone brilliantly, yet graced us with less intense heat than the week […]

Spring Showers and May Flowers I have a little “brag box” on my wedding questionnaire that I send to all of my couples a few weeks before their wedding. Sometimes I get a few bullet point remarks, other times I get a story. I received a story from Katherine, and I absolutely loved it. I […]
