Casey and Tim by Morayo Sayles

Casey and Tim were married at the Misquamicut Beach in Westerly RI. This beach just happens to be my favorite one in the state, so to say that I was excited to photograph a wedding here would be an understatement. Casey and Tim's wedding was simply put - lovely.  Family came in from as far away as Wisconsin to celebrate the day with the two of them.  They had everyone they loved with them and taking part in the day - even their beloved dog Dixon. It was a beautiful day and I was thrilled to be a part of it.  Their ceremony was held right on Misquamicut Beach, outside the site of their reception - The Andrea Beach Bar.  The staff at the Bar ensured that the night went off without a hitch - from keeping restaurant patrons away from the party to ensuring that the fabulous buffet was constantly replenished with fabulous food.  My favorite decor item was the cake topper made by the bride's mother featuring two beach chairs and a little replica of Dixon.  It was perfect! 

It was a great day, and definitely the start of a very happy and long life together for these two. Congratulations again Casey and Tim!  

Lauren and Nathan by Morayo Sayles

Lauren and Nate tied the knot at one of the swankiest places I've ever been to in Boston. Actually, I'd never been this deep in the heart of Boston before and I believe I fell in love with the city all over again. Lauren and Nathan were so cool, so suave and enjoyed every second of their night. 

Valerie and Steven by Morayo Sayles

Valerie and Steven were married at the historic post 45 American Legion Hall in Medford MA.  These two were so lovey-dovey, I caught myself every so often grinning like a cheshire cat as I watched them enjoy every minute they spent with each other, their friends and their families. They were the first couple in a while that also throughly enjoyed the tradition of smearing cake onto the face of a loved one.  All done with no malice - just good old-fashion fun.  It was epic! I felt like a member of the family the entire time I was there.  Congratulations to these two fine folks! Wishing them many years of love, laughter and enough good fortune to last them their entire lives. 

Shanery and Jeff by Morayo Sayles

Shanery and Jeff were wed at the Alpine Country Club, an idyllic location tucked away in the heart of Cranston RI.  Despite starting out overcast, their wedding day dazzled just as they said I do when the sun burst through the clouds.  I love beautiful sunny days and this wedding had just that!  Congratulations again!

Jenna and Michael by Morayo Sayles

It was my distinct pleasure to work with Kristin Jordan of Kristin Jordan Photography this past July at the Ocean Edge Resort in Cape Cod. There's nothing like a wedding on the Cape that quite encapsulates the feeling of summer.  Both Jenna and Michael attended Bryant University which just so happens to be just around the corner from my home in Smithfield RI, so it also felt like a homecoming of sorts. The DJ was none other than Baltazar of Jamn 94.5 fame!  I admit, I was a little star-struck working alongside Boston's ultimate crank caller.  It was a beautiful wedding and a great time!

Brittany and Kevin by Morayo Sayles

Brittany and Kevin were married on a bright hot day in August at the Valley Country Club in West Warwick, RI.  I was second shooting with the lovely Lisa McNeill of LM Studio. I helped photograph the details of the bride getting ready and the ceremony and then the beginning of the reception. 

Valley Country Club did a marvelous job of setting up the reception room and the staff were incredibly accommodating and flexible. There were smiles everywhere - which always makes for great pictures. Congratulations Brittany and Kevin!

Lora and Zach by Morayo Sayles

Lora and Zach had a beautiful wedding on Goat Island in Newport. It was a beautiful day and the weather was perfect.  Everything seemed to fall right into place - It was a great day. 

Sunday with the girls by Morayo Sayles

This past Sunday, whilst recovering from two days of weddings, I spent my afternoon lazing about drinking beer, watching football and hanging with some absolutely beautiful young women. First my daughter and one of her besties let me photograph them - I was practicing speed shooting and I have to say, loaning my daughter my car was a small price to pay. Next,  Kelsey just turned 18 and is a graduating senior this year, and so to celebrate, we had a mini-session at Deerfield park.  It was a good day!
