Katharine + Alex – Tiverton, Rhode Island Wedding Photography would you like to comment?

Categories: Uncategorized, wedding blog + magazine features, Weddings

After 10 weeks of almost non-stop travel I am coming up for air! I’ve been to some great locations and photographed some really special weddings which I’ll be posting soon.

First up is Katharine and Alex’s wedding which is live on the Style Me Pretty blog today. I’m so happy that their wedding is getting some limelight. It was perfect. From the ceremony on the dock, to food stations throughout the house, the whole day felt organic, relaxed, and like a house party for their closest friends and family.

Some of my favorite images of the day…

My good friend Jillian Mitchell happened to be in the area so I was lucky to have her along with me for the day. I love these two photos she took of Alex below.

Puerto Vallarta Wedding Photography Workshop 7 comments

Categories: Personal, Uncategorized, Workshops

This week I had the pleasure of giving a wedding photography workshop in Puerto Vallarta. We had a great group of photographers and what was meant to be an 8 hour day turned into 11 hours of photo goodness. It was such an awesome feeling to have this creative group together, shooting, talking, and brainstorming. Thank you to Eder Acevedo for coming up with this idea and for coordinating everything, to Yanen Ali, my right hand woman, associate photographer, and editor of 4 years for taking some photos of us and imparting her Lightroom mastery on everyone, to Mariana and Luis for being patient with us and being great models, and to Bed and Pizza for letting us use their space and feeding us great pizza and beer.

Here is our crew:

We started the day off with a discussion about the business side of wedding photography and the best ways to grow your business in Puerto Vallarta. We followed that with a critique of each student’s work.

Before we hit the streets we took advantage of some great light inside.

We spent a lot of time roaming through the streets exploring different ideas. I’d spent some time talking about anticipating moments, finding good compositions and waiting for something to happen, and really sticking with something until you have it. I saw this little girl peak out her door at us and got into my head that I wanted the bride and groom to go on the other side of the door so that we could get them and the little girl in the shot. She went back inside but I still had them go get into position hoping that she would come out, and she did! Sometimes when you plan and wait for something to happen, it does, and it can be magical.

Some more great light and a wonderful connection between our bride and groom.

We stumbled upon a gritty little tunnel that didn’t smell very good but Mariana and Luis were troopers and we played around.

After our shoot we went through editing, processing, and photoshop techniques followed by some cold beer! It was a great day. Thanks to everyone who came and supported. I hope to do another one soon!

Rene and Yokaira brought some serious New York and Latin flavor with them for their Puerto Vallarta wedding. Their ceremony was at the Church of Guadalupe, Vallarta’s crowned icon, and their reception was held at Grand Velas in Nuevo Vallarta. To my delight, we had a little time to roam the streets around the church for some photos of the two of them before their grand entrance into the reception. I loved these two and their extended families and friends and feel honored to have been the one to document this wonderful time for them.

Congratulations Rene and Yokaira!

El Tamarindo, Costalegre, Mexico

Brie and Mike held their wedding at the boutique resort El Tamarindo, along the Costalegre, 3 hours south of Puerto Vallarta. One of the nicest resorts I’ve seen yet, it has a wonderful balance between nature and luxury. Literally in the middle of nowhere, you might pass it if you blink! I really enjoyed photographing their lovely wedding and getting to know these lovebirds. Just look at those smiles. Congratulations Mike and Brie, you really know how to throw a wedding with style. I was also lucky enough to have my good friend and amazing photographer Mark Callanan along for the ride snapping shots as well.
