This weekend I attended a stunning wedding at Belle Mer’s Island House, in Newport, Rhode Island.  These are photos taken as a guest – not a professional!  I’ve known the couple since they were high school sweethearts at Nobles.  Needless to say, the wedding was a sort of reunion for many of us, with former classmates gathering again to celebrate in style.

After a day of rain, the sky broke open in time for a fiery sunset over the water.  That, combined with the scenic seaside location, nautical decorations, and a great looking couple made for some great images!  I wish I had photographed more, but at some point I had to put down the camera and enjoy the festivities myself : )

Check out these portraits of green-eyed sisters, Brianna and Keara.  I photographed them at their home and at Borderline State Park on a perfect summer day.  The two are talented ballerinas and weren’t afraid to show off their skills (and dozens of worn-out slippers).  I hope you enjoy their spunky behavior as much as I did.

This past weekend  I photographed a lovely bridal shower at Susu Bakery Boutique in Wellesley.  Think candy everywhere, pastel cupcakes, giggling ladies, and of course lots of bubbly.  It was quite a delicious and festive soirée!

The beautiful bride-to-be is a the sister of a dear friend, and I look forward to photographing her wedding this coming October:)

Without further ado, my first real blog post… Enjoy!

Hi everyone and happy Monday.  I am pleased to announce the birth of my new ProPhoto Blog website.  I hope that over time I will add improvements, as well tons of new photos as shoots occur.  Please let me know if you catch any typos, glitches, or think something could be improved.  “Constructive criticism” is always appreciated : )

I am proud to initiate my blog with a shoot of a family that actually lives across the street from me.  Local Cambridgians!  I hope you enjoy this glimpse into a typical summer evening in our neighborhood, full of playfulness and smiles.  This is where the beloved summertime sound of children laughing and playing comes from!
