Everyone has a checklist for a wedding - venue ✔️, flowers ✔️, photographer ✔️ and so on down the list. Once I receive the invite to capture someone’s special day, my checklist begins - bride + groom ✔️, groom’s family ✔️, bridal party ✔️ etc., but the thing I love most about my job are the moments and the captures that you cannot make a checklist for.
There are moments in every wedding that simply cannot be planned for, that happen out of love, that occur out of a good time - these are the in-between moments, when they think no one is watching, or are so ‘in the moment’ that they do not care. These are the moments and the camera captures I crave.
Matt and Rose asked me to join in on their magical day to do just that. Not only was it such an amazing opportunity to work with such a beautiful couple in such a dreamy setting up in Rhode Island at Ocean House, their genuine love and happiness allowed me to create the images we ALL truly wished for. It is my hope that these images represent to you what they do to me, kindness, authenticity, pure joy, FUN, gratitude and most importantly LOVE. There were an abundance of hugs and laughs and I was lucky enough to witness all of them behind the lens and capture them for this couple to have forever memories of the goodness they radiate …… and for me, as a wedding photographer, that is the checking all the boxes!
