Greg and Jenny | Wedding | Bristol, Rhode Island

These two are conservationists so it was appropriate that their love of the sea be entwined throughout their wedding day. Subtle themes of the ocean were found everywhere! While they make their home in Florida, Jenny's love of little rhody could be found in Bristol Harbor and Del's Lemonade. They cruised the harbor and made a grand entrance at the Bristol Yacht Club where their guests were waiting dockside with champagne and cheers!

Kevin and Erin | Wedding | Newport RI

Kevin and Erin are one of the warmest and stylish couples I know! I could tell they would be awesome when they started telling me they had ties to Philadelphia. If you know me at all then you know my uncanny way of attracting Philly and Jersey clients in New England. It always makes me smile when I hear those first, we met at Penn or our first apartment was in Chestnut Hill. Too funny! 

Their wedding was incredibly fun and chic. I adored Erin's pretty pastel color palette! It was such a pleasure to photograph their day but even more amazing when Im able to work with vendors I know and love. One of my all time favorites is MAW Beauty. Melissa and her team are a powerhouse when it comes to making all the ladies feel completely and totally gorgeous!

John and Ellen | Wedding | Newport, RI

John and Ellen's beautiful Newport wedding was made completely perfect surrounded by loving friends and family. The weather was stunning and the ocean was filled with sailboats!

I always say that each couple sets the tone for their big day. Ellen and John were glowing and laughing from the getting ready moments to the first dance. It was an amazing thing to witness through them but also through their guests! Happy vibes get passed around an event like a wildfire. I have such gratitude to share and be showered in all of these happy moments. 

One of my other favorite parts of my job is connecting with a new vendor and making friends! Yay new friends! JV Films did an OUTSTANDING job filming video for John and Ellen's wedding. I highly recommend him if you are in the wedding planning phase.

Tim and Caitlin | Wedding | Boston, MA

Back to Boston I went to help Time and Caitlin celebrate their wedding day. We drove around the Back Bay (Public Garden and Post Office Square) taking in the sights and photographing moments. They chose to share vows together near the pond as they thought they would be nervous in front of their many guests. It ended up being such in intimate and special moment.

Ben and Charlotte | Wedding | Portsmouth, Rhode Island

Joy and pure love were all I kept thinking to myself the entire day as I shot Ben and Charlotte's wedding. From the time that I walked into the getting ready moments until I waved goodbye in the pouring rain as they were swept up into a get away car. I adore being involved with such a celebration, such people. This is my tribe, is where I belong. These beautiful couples, just beginning their adventures together and I am asked to capture the very beginning of it all. Kisses to Ben and Charlotte! Wishing you 100 years of health and bliss!

Joe and Amanda | Wedding | Narragansett, RI

What a perfect and sweet wedding! Joe and Amanda were surrounded by their closest family and friends at the Towers in Narragansett before making the move to Arizona. (They even had favors of Arizona Iced Tea as favors. Hehe.) It was so lovely watching both sides of their families celebrating and wishing them well in their new lives together!

Caleb and Laura | Wedding | Pascoag, Rhode Island

I've been told by Caleb and Laura that I am their "soul photographer" which is about the nicest thing a client has ever said to me. I believe that vibe attracts vibe. My clients are the sweetest creatures on earth. 

These two were married on a gloriously sunny, perfect day in Rhode Island. I pass the ECC often in my daily life and had never noticed it. What a sweet venue! Many of the bridal party members had spent summers there as children. I adore love stories like this where two people come back to a place where they spent so much time laughing, forging friendships and making memories. These places are already infused with such love.

Nick and Pinar | Engagement | Boston University

I met up with Nick and Pinar in what was possibly the BEST spring day we have had so far in New England. New England weather is forever the joke around here. It usually goes something like: Are you hot? Wait a minute. Cold? Wait a minute. Too rainy? Wait a minute. Too windy? Wait a minute. Ha! We really were blessed after rescheduling and trying to predict the next nice day. These two met at Boston University and were college sweethearts so it's only fitting that we come back to the beginning.

Mike and Olivia | Wedding | Block Island, Rhode Island

A little fall of rain could not stop the romance. This storm just started their marriage off snuggling closer together under an umbrella. Amma and I headed over to Block Island Saturday morning to shoot Mike and Olivia's wedding. Olivia wished for a first look with her dad and it was oh-so-special. His reaction was super sweet and I couldn't help but think of all the flashing memories running through his head of when she was a little girl. 

Congratualtions Mike and Olivia! 100 years of health and happiness!

Adam and Abby | Wedding | Newport, Rhode Island

First wedding of the 2017 season! Yay! It's so good to be back to work after having my daughter.

Adam and Abby's wedding was such a joyful and lovely way to start. I knew some familiar faces as I had photographed Abby's cousins wedding years ago. (wow does time fly!) Belle Mer looked stunning in peach and coral, the band was aaaamazing and can we talk about the hanging vine chuppah?! Such awesome vendors came together for this wedding! Adam and Abby are the sweetest couple and are so loved. I could see it in every face present that day. It is a testament of love being surrounded by so many family and friends. Congratulations to the happy couple :)

Tony and Courtney | Wedding | Pomfret, Connecticut

Tony and Courtney were married at one of my favorite venues in New England, Tyrone Farm. Their wedding party brought non stop laughs. I had never photographed a bridal party so large..21 strong! It was an amazing celebration of love all day and the dance floor was never empty all night!

Lee | Artist Portrait | Providence, Rhode Island

Photographing other artists is such a joy. I love hearing about their process, their journey, their challenges. I can relate on so many levels to their experiences. Lee is a folk musician just getting started in the industry and has made the cross-country journey to settle in Boston. We chatted about an album cover concept and set to work in the woods of Middletown, RI.

To be on the other side and listening to these stories is pure magic. All of our journeys are unique and special. There is no destination. There is no "I know everything now.". There is no "I have made it". There is only moving forward, learning and growing. As an artist, the evolution of a lifetime of work is profound. As a human being, the evolution of a lifetime is a miracle. I am honored to be a part of such journeys and to tell their stories.

Having a client walk into my studio for a boudoir session is so exciting. Every session is different. Every session is an awakening. It's amazing to watch a womans beauty and confidence unfold before my eyes. These sessions are for every woman, every body type, every look and style. They are for every woman in every stage of life; newly engaged, celebrating a weight loss, enjoying a new look, graduating from college/grad school, going through a divorce/break-up, etc. 

A few times a year I offer mini boudoir marathons. These sessions are offered at a special price starting at $350 and include professional hair and make-up styling. I'll be taking the marathons on the road this year! Here is the upcoming schedule:

Jan.7--Philadelphia

Jan.14, 15 & 29--Providence

Tis the season for boudoir photography. Just in time for Valentine's Day! 

These sessions are perfect for every woman who needs a little boost. I understand the long days at work, rushing to the gym, taking care of little ones, baking, cooking, hosting guests, juggling a full schedule. These are the days when you throw your hair up in a messy bun, grab a coffee and try to get it all done. Time to take it down a notch after all the holiday madness and pamper yourself. I can help with that. Gimme a call to set up a session!

Kevin and Amy | Wedding | Providence, Rhode Island

"So hey, our wedding reception will be at a local bowling alley and we want to bar tend our cocktail hour." Awesome. Kevin and Amy's wedding was so laid back and fun I forgot I was seven months pregnant! Ha! 

After a ceremony at the Providence College Chapel, we headed over to Hope Artiste Village. So many fun, personal touches were weaved throughout the day. It was an amazing wrap to the 2016 season!

Lindsey | Local Business Portrait | Newport, RI

Collaborating with local business owners and creatives is so exciting for me. It's a creative process in which we carefully curate a collection of images that remain relevant for their use for things like: seasonal specials, a new retail space or studio, social media library, website revamp, etc. It's so interesting to here about their journeys and the way their business has unfolded. Lindsey is a Lifestyle and Fitness Coach and recently moved her business to New England.

Paul and Meghan | Wedding | Providence, Rhode Island

Nothing makes me happier than being in Providence. Well, nothing makes me happier than Providence with couples that have Philly ties. Hehehe. Meghan and I bonded instantly over being Temple University grads. I absolutely adore touring couples through Providence on their wedding day or during an engagement session. It's a city of endless beauty year round and all kinds of nooks and crannies for photos. During the planning process I even sent Meghan and Paul a map of my favorite places in the city. What a fabulous day and perfect evening!

Tim and Caitlin Engagement | Cambridge, Massachusetts

It's so colorful over here!! Cambridge comes alive in the late summer. Graffiti alley is something special and always changing. It's these little treasures I so adore in every city. Places that you would normally pass by unless someone pointed them out. I feel the same way about the MIT campus. It is a labyrinth of walkways, buildings, gardens and sculptures. This is part of the reason Tim and Caitlin thought it would be a perfect place to explore for their engagement session.

Things are always busy at the end of summer for all but especially in the photo industry! Whew summer went by too fast! In New England, it always does. The winter lingers and the summer goes too fast. It's great to get to the beach whenever possible in Rhode Island and usually for me, that means I am with clients. Even better! When Erin and Kevin wanted to hang out at the beach and my favorite fishing spot I was all in! These two had no problem splashing around in the water and taking in the sunset. I am so excited for their wedding next year in 2017.

Grahame and Michelle Maternity | Warwick, Rhode Island

Babies, babies everywhere! Michelle and Grahame are expecting their little angel this fall. I spent some time in their home listening to their stories of pregnancy, nesting and family. Michelle is taking her time to journal this new adventure and read to her baby. The sweetest thing was watching the two of them in the nursery showing me all her clothes, books, furniture and decorations. Everything had deep meaning to them and a special place in their home.
