One of my favorite parts about being a wedding photographer is getting to hear how a couple met. Most of the time it’s by happenstance and love at first sight is a real thing! This couple’s story proves it.
It all started with a bike ride and a beer. Kim and Jon met while doing the B2B ride (now the B2VT ride), which is a 148 mile bike ride from the Harpoon Brewery in Boston to the Harpoon brewery in Windsor, Vermont. This ride was obviously a monumental time in their lives and because of this a lot of the details and the decor had to do with bikes and Harpoon Beer. They even had it on tap! Two of my favorite decor pieces were antique bike tires which were used to hold the guest cards and the adorable customized cake topper. The wire couple perched on their bike with their names and a heart. Just perfect.
The Squantum Association was the perfect place to hold this couple’s wedding. The scenery was gorgeous, full of fall colors and beautiful ocean views. It also featured a bike path along the property! Given their love of biking we thought it would be fun to hold all the family formals on the path. We had a lot of cheers and high fives from the passing riders.
The ceremony was held in the club house overlooking the water while Jon’s uncle officiated the ceremony. After the exchange of the rings, the kiss and the exciting walk up the aisle we headed out to take a few shots before it got dark. The couple was introduced in and wasted no time in starting the party. It was an exciting, fun filled evening and Greg of C-Zone kept the dance floor jumping. Thank you Kim & Jon for sharing your incredible day!

Snow! Snow! Snow! It’s a snow day here in Newport and we are getting lots done! After the last snowstorm Jenna & Chris had contacted me to start planning their wintry engagement session! If you want to have a snowy session there are a few things to consider. Do you want the snow flakes in your photos? If yes, then the best time to go out is when there is a light snowfall. Also finding a place that is dense with trees or architecture. This will help to enhance the snowflakes and add a little more color. Timing a session with the perfect snow fall can be tough especially when winter brings lots of blizzards. The other option is to wait a day or two after the session so that you get pristine white snow but you can incorporate the beautiful golden glow of light from the sun! PLUS, it can be a bit warmer. I love this look because the sun makes the snow sparkle and with a blanket of white comes bright beautiful images.
This couple wanted a romantic winter wonderland feel and that’s what we got and more! I love the accessories they chose. The fuzzy hat and the plaid blanket are the two most adorable things ever. Jenna & Chris thank you for braving the cold and playing in the snow with me!
