It was my first time visiting Newport and I really enjoyed the amazing coastal views, the quaint colonial feel of the town, and the cafe I visited beforehand for a delicious, casual, waterfront brunch. Erin and Matt got ready at the Hyatt Regency Newport, said their vows at the historic St. Augustin’s Church, and then headed over to Castle Hill Inn for portraits and reception celebrations. The weather was chilly and I love that Erin wore a stole to keep warm. I also love the surprise bag piper, the classic reception details, Erin’s amazing dress (!!!), and just how laid back and sweet their day was. A big thank you to Gina for coming along to assist for the day!

A few more blog posts left for the year and to finish up 2015, a look back at all the wonderful families and couples I had the chance to document. Have a wonderful holiday, everyone! See you again soon!

Check out photos of this sweet family from about a year ago when I photographed them at the arboretum! Look at how small and sweet Rafi is! It’s crazy to compare the two sessions, how much Rafi has grown and how quickly the last year has passed. I really enjoyed meeting up with Arielle a few weeks ago and spending time documenting her family. For her family session this year, I took a more relaxed lifestyle approach to shooting, and I stepped back and let these three explore the arboretum a bit and enjoy the beautiful, mild fall day spent together. The colors at the Arnold Arboretum are incredible in the fall, the perfect backdrop for some updated family photos (…just in time for the holiday!).

Earlier this season I flew down to Pinehurst, NC to finally meet Allison & Will in person, and to document their sweet southern, fall day. These two planned their wedding from the west coast and over the past year’s phone calls and Skype dates, I’ve really become excited to see their day come together. I am so thankful Allison & Will trusted me to document their wonderful wedding, and a special thank you to Kevin for coming along to second shoot and assist me that day! One last 2015 wedding coming to the blog next week, keep your eyes peeled!
