Newport Wedding Magazine

Newport Life Magazine
101 Malbone Rd.
Newport, RI 02840

Many of my images have been featured in Newport Life Magazine. One of the bigger features they ran was about two of our couples, Colleen and Ike, which you can peak at here and Crystal and Lee.

It is a Newport based publication and is the only lifestyle magazine dedicated to Newport County. Since 1993, it has showcased all that is unique about the City-by-the-Sea, from its people and places, to its events, history and of course its distinctive lifestyle.

They also host some really terrific Bridal Showcases, which we have also taken part in.

Renee and David

Renee and David's outdoor nuptials transpired during a mesmerizing sunset at Belle Mer. The more than ideal day of spectacular weather was on September 5, 2009 (Labor Day weekend).

Renee is a college friend, and it always gives me great joy and moves my heart when I am given the honor to capture the most important moments in my friends' lives. I don't believe I have ever seen Renee look so radiant in all the time I've know her.

Renee and David had a cigar roller at the celebration, which made for a smokin' good time. harhar (Couldn't help myself.)

The pure design of the wedding was very feng shui in its architecture. It was a classic and elegant way to spend the day.

I wish both of you all the success and happiness in the world!

S-MOKIN' hahaha


Check out their featured wedding in 2011 Southern New England Wedding Magazine.

Alanna and Jay

Alanna and Jay's history spans over many years of getting to know one another and falling in love more and more each day. It was time to make it official so the wedding date was chosen ... 28th of June, 2009 and it would take place at OceanCliff.

They decided that they wanted to take some photographs before exchanging vows and I caught the moment they saw one another. You can truly see the excitement and love on their faces and in their eyes - what a moment that was! To me, it's slices of time such as those that make me love my work so much!

We stole away and found an intimate setting off-site on Ocean Drive, where I was able to capture the true essence of their relationship. We made our way back and I photographed the entire way. The walk we took made for some extraordinarily romantic images.

The three of us had plenty to chat about throughout the day, as I used to live in New York and they're located not far across the river in New Jersey. There seems to be an affinity that happens between folks that have that in common. So, this was a Destination Wedding for them! They just really LOVE Newport - who doesn't?

These two are incredibly fun-loving and upbeat, as are their newly joined family and friends. The day was chock-full of merriment and playfulness. The love Alanna and Jay share continues to blossom and grow!!!

Mike Picard was their videographer that day ... which always adds to the entertainment! ;-)

Here are some selections off their latest album,
