Ashton saw some pictures I took at Fenway beach, Weekapaug, and decided that her and Matt wanted their engagement pictures done their too. We had changing lighting which gave a number of opportunities for a wide variety of images.
They both had a lot of fun, especially frolicking at the waters edge. When the sun went behind the clouds there was some nice rays coming through which made for some stunning backdrops and semi silhouette shots.
Engagement Session at Weekapaug Beach RI
David called me and asked if I could capture his proposal at the Watch Hill Light House while is fiancee was unaware. I said certainly and would love to do it. Since I only live 10 minutes away I went a couple times to take some pictures and try and help figure out how we could pull it off.
So after a few conversations we came up with a plan and I think from the following images you will see that it went very well. Emily had no clue what was going on. I have never seen so much real emotion and joy coming from the two of them. I feel privileged to be there to Capture the Moment!
Monique and Jack along with their guests stayed at one of their favorite headings when they come to RI,at the Shelter Harbor Inn, where they decided to have their wedding. Their ceremony was performed under a tree off the back patio which accommodated everyone while guitarist provided back ground music. After the ceremony the bridal party headed to one of their meaningful spots at the Weekapaug beach and Shelter Harbor access for location pictures.
The couple showed lots of affection and looked great and Jack reflected that with his constant smile thought out the day.
Monique's dog stole the show in many of the pictures.
The food provided by Shelter Harbor Catering was outstanding as usual and the live band completed the nights entertainment.
Jack's son got up and jammed with the band for a couple of songs playing a mean electric guitar,, very impressive.
The day started out at Sarah's parent's home in Westerly where we took some getting ready pictures of the family and her Maids. Just down the street I managed to get a few pictures the Guys, Matt and the Groomsmen.
Next we headed to the Fenway Beach where it was planned for the First Look to take place. I had Matt stand facing the ocean on a board walk waiting for Sarah to come. That turned for some really nice pictures along with others, just the two of them before the rest of the family and bridal party came.
Everyone had a good time as we took pictures on the boardwalk and then on the beach.
From there it was to the venue, Jonathan Edwards Winery in North Stonington for the ceremony and reception.
The outside ceremony setting in the vineyard went off beautifully with a lot of emotion shown by Sarah and Matt.
After the ceremony it was cocktails in the Vineyard's main bar and reception room then it was off to the large tent for the reception.
The setting is very picturesque with the moonlit sky but inside everyone was warm and cozy while enjoying the buffet and dancing.
The following is just a smattering of pictures covering Sarah and Matts special day.
So the Fall theme is a good one for taking family photos. Had a great time with the Woycik family, especially their two daughters.
