Michelle + David – Newport, RI Wedding Photos

September 24th, 2008

I love Newport, RI. I haven’t been there in years, and it was an extra special treat to go there with Rob & Kathleen of RJT Pictures to help capture Michelle & David’s wedding day.

We started off at the Hyatt on Goat Island in Newport. A beautiful hotel with some amazing views! While Rob & Kathleen were off with the Bride, I got to spend some time with David while he was getting ready for the big day.

Here is the ring bearer watching David get ready (and cartoons!):


And here is the handsome David – excited for the day to begin!


I love this shot! David is a Police Officer, and his stature is a bit intimidating. If he pulled me over I would be scared. Good thing he was so happy and smiling all day (and is a sweet guy!)


Off to the ceremony at St Anthony’s Church in Portsmouth. Here is the gorgeous Michelle being walked down the aisle by her Dad and brother.


Her dress was Uh-May-Zing!! One of the prettiest dresses I have ever seen..along with the Cathedral length veil, which is one of my favorite things ever!


The vows:


Look at David’s expression! I love this moment.


The kiss:


Michelle looked so amazing I could hardly stand it. The shot on the right was a shot that Rob posed (check out his blog to see it) and I shot from a side angle. Michelle looks great from every angle!


At the reception – the beautiful Belle Mer, I tagged along for some shots of Michelle and David. The sunset and soft light were just too much to pass up!

Loving this flare:


My favorite of the day. I love breaking the “rules” of photography.


And of course the amazing sunset with the stunning bride:


Inside the setup was incredible. It looked great in the late afternoon…


And after sunset too:


The band, Heartbeat Dance Band, totally rocked!



I loooove this shot.


The first dance. Aren’t they sweet?



A little more flare:


This one cracks me up!


Apparently David is an amazing drummer!


Isn’t he cute?


Michelle was loving his drumming!

Thanks Michelle & David, and Rob and Kathleen for having me along! I had a great time as usual ; )
Be sure to check out Rob’s blog for more from the day.
