June was a month of making new friends, loosing favorite pieces of gear and experiencing my first triple-header wedding weekend ever. That last tidbit made June a truly memorable month for me.
I photographed five weddings in June - two as a primary photographer and three as a second photographer. I kicked off the month photographing Charlene and David's wedding at their home in Chepachet. It was a glorious informal affair that was a celebration of love and of family. The next weekend, I travelled across Rhode Island to document a wedding of a couple that loves the City of Providence almost as much as I do.
My second photographer gigs were exhilarating! If you follow the Piper Brown Photography instagram account (and if you don't, please do!) you'll recall three posts that went up the weekend of June 22 - 24 that featured a beaming photographer racing from one gig to another.
I had THREE weddings y'all! THREE back-to-back-to-back. My feet landed in Epsom salts Sunday night for sure!
I had two days of family sessions this past month. The first was a family reunion of sort at the Goddard State Park in East Greenwich. This was the session where I lost a favorite piece of gear - RIP Westcott 6ft Umbrella. After loosing my umbrella, I decided NEVER EVER to photograph another session without having an assistant by my side. Especially if I'll be using any lighting gear. The next family session was really a compilation of a bunch of minis to be honest - It was the Annual Free Photos for Public Safety Families event. My second time participating in what's becoming an eagerly anticipated annual tradition in Rhode Island, I was able to make portraits for four different public safety families.
Finally, I capped the month off with two engagement sessions. Both held on June 30th which had to be the hottest stickiest day of the year EVER! It was brutal being out there with little to no breeze, but I have to say, my couples made looking fabulous effortless AND refreshing! I'm not kidding. I'll be posting about their sessions in the next couple of days, stay tuned for that.
So that was my June in a nutshell. July is a month of vacationing and chilling. I don't really have much planned for the month and so I'm going to take the opportunity to travel the country a little bit and enjoy time with my family. When I'm not making images for Piper Brown Photography, I still have a camera in hand, photographing everything and anything that catches my eye. I've been toying with the idea of launching a personal work page just so I can share my random snaps as well. I mean, what else am I going to do with the images right? Should I get that page off the ground, I'll be sure to share details about the page here as well.
Next post will be details about the weddings of June! Who, what, where and when! Come back and trek across RI with me.
