Every once in a while, we meet a family so welcoming and generous with their love that we feel like we’re part of their event rather than outsiders looking in. Jared and Tyler’s rehearsal dinner at Bowen’s Wharf was one of those nights.

Jared’s mom, Sherri Klein, is a Newport wedding planner, which is perfect because Jared and Tyler live in Florida and needed some long-distance help. We were so flattered that out of all her industry contacts, Sherri trusted us to photograph the most important wedding she’ll ever plan!

We didn’t meet Jared and Tyler until the night of the rehearsal dinner, but when we finally met, it was love at first sight! And not only toward them, but toward their entire families. And they had a beautiful night for their rehearsal dinner — perfect for a few shots on the Wharf. We got so caught up in capturing the couple’s happy smiles that Marisa almost fell off the dock, camera and all! Now that’s dedication.

That beautiful night was the start of a beautiful relationship, and we can’t to show off the photos from the main event!



This wasn’t our first time to visit Blithewold Mansion with Jacquee and Matt. We were there with them once before for their engagement session. One of our favorite parts of our job is documenting the growth of a family — from engagement shoots to wedding shoots to maternity shoots to family portraits! And this maternity session was particularly exciting because Jacquee and Matt have been waiting for six long years to welcome a baby.

It’s so much fun to photograph this couple; not only because they are incredibly sweet and thoughtful, but because Jacquee has incredible style! She picked the perfect outfit for the setting and looked equal parts fairy princess and earth mother with just a dash of boho babe in the woods. Gorgeous!

The couple sent us a note after our session that made us cry, thanking us for documenting their life’s fleeting moments and making the experience “magic.” Jacquee and Matt — the magic is in you! And especially in that new little life you brought into the world.

Kristen and Eric had the biggest wedding ever at Belle Mer in Newport, RI. We didn’t think it was possible to have this many friends, but if you meet Kristen and Eric, you’d absolutely understand why people want to be around them. They are so much fun! If you needed proof look at the dancing photos from their reception! Enough said. After we posted some sneak peek pictures from the wedding on our social media, we got tons of messages from people saying they wish they were friends with them. Same!

Even their dog, Jackson, couldn’t stand to be away from them for a moment! He, of course, couldn’t have stolen the show from that beautiful bride, but he got a lot of laughs when he ran down the aisle after the formal processional.   

Eric and Kristen planned one of the most beautiful tributes to a passed loved one we’ve ever seen at a reception. Eric lost his mother to cancer. In her memory he and his mother’s best friend danced to the song “Drops of Jupiter,” which was written by someone who lost their mom to cancer. Eric’s mother must have been an incredible person to have inspired such a beautiful moment. And after spending the day with Eric and listening to the way his friends talk about him, we know that he must have been a truly wonderful son.

We have no doubt that just like his mom, Eric and Kristen will lead a full life together that will inspire others for generations to come! Happy everything, Eric and Kristen!
