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.
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.
There’s a very contagious bug going around Bermuda and it’s called the “America’s Cup”! Jim and I made our way to our friends' house on the western end of the island to check out the races. As soon as I saw the AC45Fs flying through the water, I was hooked! Jim and I rooted for Oracle Team USA, who won their race against Emirates Team New Zealand! After watching the races at a friends' house, we made our way to the America's Cup Village - where we thoroughly enjoyed Jean Wyclef's show and the Opening Ceremony! For the past few years, Bermuda has made many changes to pave the way for the 35th America's Cup! The sailors have lived in and around our community and with Opening Day finally arriving, it was very exciting to see them in action!
I had a great time at the Orchid Spa Wedding Expo in Bermuda at the Fairmont Southampton! Many thanks to everyone who stopped by the Fiander Foto booth! It was fun to speak with folks about their upcoming wedding plans and enjoyed hearing about stories of how a couple met, where they are from, and what brought them to the expo. My assistant, Cathie, and I had an opportunity to chat with folks not only from Bermuda but also from Poland, the USA, the UK, Italy, South Africa, Canada, Australia, and China. Being born and raised in the Washington D.C. area, it was extra special to meet a fellow D.C. Football Fan at the expo! (#HTTR!)
