Wedding: Cathie & Andrew in Providence, Rhode Island

Wedding: Cathie & Andrew in Providence, Rhode Island

For a wedding that was planned within three months, this one was pretty spectacular! I had the pleasure of photographing Cathie and Andrew's destination wedding in Providence, Rhode Island during the best time of year in New England: Fall!  Their wedding included a few traditional aspects, a few non-traditional ones, and a number of DIY facets!  Originally from Bermuda, the couple traveled to New England for their destination wedding because Cathie attended Brown University for her undergraduate degree. With this in mind, the bride and groom thought it would be a fitting city to get married in! The wedding day started at dawn and with a few cups of coffee, the bride and groom got ready at The Dean Hotel downtown for their morning ceremony.

Elopement: John & Brianna at Jobson's Cove

Elopement: John & Brianna at Jobson's Cove

John and Brianna hopped off their cruise ship for a few hours while docked at King’s Wharf and got “hitched” at Jobson’s Cove a lovely Thursday afternoon! John contacted me two weeks before their wedding to see if I was available for an hour-long elopement session to which I responded, “of course”!  With a little help from my friends – Ms. Emma Simms and Pastor Dean – these two were able to be wed right on the water’s edge!

Wedding: Alyse and Stevie at Coral Beach in Bermuda

Wedding: Alyse and Stevie at Coral Beach in Bermuda

I had the pleasure of photographing Alyse Hanrahan and Stevie Moses’ wedding on May 6, 2017, in Bermuda at the Coral Beach Club!  What was more amazing was after spending the day with these two love birds, I also had the chance to get to know them a little bit. The bride and groom were originally from Massachusetts although are currently living in Russia, where Stevie is a professional ice hockey player for the SKA Saint Petersburg team of the Kontinental Hockey League; dubbed one of the fastest skaters on earth!  Alyse is an accomplished make-up artist, with a seemingly carefree personality and infectious laugh.  After seeing photographs of Alyse's make-up work on Instagram, I knew the “getting ready” photos would be fun!  Perhaps one of the most romantic things I learned about Alyse and Stevie was that they had been dating for 11 years and were high school sweethearts! Check out all the details of this elegant wedding in the post.

Contest Winner: PDN's "Celebrations"

Contest Winner: PDN's "Celebrations"

I was super stoked (and a bit shocked) to receive an e-mail from Photo District News notifying me that I was one of their winners in this year’s “Celebrations” contest!  This competition was centered on how we – as humans - celebrate private events, weddings, cultural events, corporate gatherings, and holidays. I took this as an opportunity to consider the work I shoot of my own family (vs. the images I usually take of my clients' families) and submitted a photograph I took of my husband, Jim, sitting at my Grampie’s Christmas dinner table for the first time. Many celebrations have occurred around this table over the years, Birthdays, Easter, Thanksgiving, Mother's, and Father's Day.  It was extra special to introduce Jim to our family’s Christmas dinner tradition.
