There are some days, scratch that, MOST days that we feel completely blessed to have the job we do. Weddings like Charlene and Andrew’s exemplify our feelings times 100. Yes, weddings are beautiful events filled with flowers, beautiful dresses and freshly shaven faces. You don’t have to twist my arm to enjoy photographing beautiful things….it’s inspiring and fun. But all of those things are nothing if you don’t have LOVE and JOY. This is what makes our job different than just shooting magazine or blog styled shoots. Charlene and Andrew’s wedding was filled with so much happiness. They are better together than apart, and it was clear to everyone that their passion for life and each other far surpassed the glamour and glitz of a fancy wedding day. That isn’t to say that their wedding wasn’t beautiful. It was STUNNING and every detail was perfectly placed. But despite all of those things, their biggest priority on their wedding day was each other – and it was so joyfully obvious. They exchanged vows at their meeting place and Alma Mater, Bryant University and The Eisenhower House in Newport, Rhode Island was a perfect backdrop for their laid back tented reception. We absolutely loved shooting their portraits on the perfectly New England coastline in Newport and have to say that our favorite moment of the day was when Andrew surprised Charlene with a song he had written her during the reception. We actually think he may have a career as a rockstar ahead of him (seriously). Charlene and Andrew, Congratulations. We are so happy to have shared in your big day and wish you a lifetime of adventures!
