Engagement on the Rocks

This is a really cool (and sneaky) idea on how to capture an engagement moment like this without having it feel staged and forced!  Also just plain beautiful regardless of the occassion!



It started with a phone call from Hector who told me of his plans to ask for his girlfriend, Madelin’s hand in marriage. The plan began with dinner reservations at the Castle Hill Inn, Newport, Rhode Island, followed by a short walk down a path leading along the edge of ocean to the Castle Hill Lighthouse. Hector and his friend ran out during a bathroom break and set up the stairs with rose pedals and candles and hurried back inside for the main course. I posed as a landscape photographer on the rocks overlooking the water, explaining away to all other couples walking along the path, that the setup was not for them, saving the day for their significant other :). I was honored to be a part of their wedding proposal and look forward to their wedding day. I hope you enjoy the wonderful images that we were able to capture!

Gear Used:

Vintage Airport Family Photo Session

This is a session we received several months ago actually and due to our own mistake, we haven’t featured it yet.  Shame on us!  This is definitely one of the more unique themed-sessions we have received!  Not everyone has access to an airplane as a prop :)  Really beautiful session and she really nailed the vintage theme to a T!



I had been dreaming of doing a Vintage Airport Photo Shoot for a while and finally set out to make it happen. Everything came together great. From finding the perfect family, to coordinating the hair and makeup, even down to finding an amazing airplane. The P. family did a wonderful job! I love the images from this photo shoot.

A special thanks to Rachel Bettis for the great job with hair and makeup.

Gear Used:
Nikon D90, Nikon 18-55mm, Yongnuo YN-560 II Speedlight and shoot through umbrella.

Maternity Session: Beach

Absolutely gorgeous!  There’s really not much else that needs to be said.  Thank you to Gul Photography for the submission!



For this maternity session we wanted to move away from the traditional maternity photography and incorporate hint of glamour and fashion to it. The idea was to show this beautiful transformation and phase in life and create stunning portraits for mom to cherish for years to come
