Attention brides, If you are planning a wedding and you haven’t pick a place yet, you got to check out Eolia mansion in Waterford. One of our most favorite places to shoot a wedding, and also most of the photographers’ we know. We had a blast at Heather and Bryan’s wedding. Ceremony was in the garden and the reception outside under the tent, blasting a lot of 80’s and 90’s music. (We are suckers for the 90’s though) But even better than the location or great tunes were the beautiful vows and so emotional toasts by the maid of honor and Heather’s mom the day before at the rehearsal dinner.

The opening sequence, meeting at the railing, came out exactly as we imagined it to be, mostly because of Heather and Bryan’s willingness to work with us through out the day. Their photographer, and our friend Kiva from Annanddale Photography has taken all of us to a nearby meadow, were we’ve got more killer shots. So glad he did. Check out his pictures here.

We love Newport and RI for that matter. It is one of the best wedding destination location in the Continental US. Our first time at Belle Mer, and what a beautiful and highly professional place. And the view, ahh. It is the best feature from all. Especially at night when you see the entire Newport bridge all lit up. We cannot wait to come back. However, we weren’t thrilled too much about the rain, although we were so lucky the rain took a breather until the ceremony was over. It almost didn’t happened outside. Immediately when we finished it started to pour. So we were forced to wait until late into the night to get some creative shots. But I think they came out so beautiful with the bridge in the background.

A funny story, we have decided to travel to Newport a day before, to get establishing shots of the environment and to catch the rehearsal dinner. The plan was to book a room there, so we don’t waste time traveling back and forth. First we were caught in a horrible traffic going towards Newport, and we couldn’t understand why that is, being an early on Friday. When we got into Newport, it got even worse. We finally got there, get the shots, went to shoot the rehearsal dinner and after that we went with our plan of booking a room for the night. That’s when things start going wrong. The hotel we picked informed us they are fully booked, so we went to look for another one and there they said the same answer, “we are fully booked, don’t you know what’s this weekend”, we said “no what”, he said ” it’s the folk festival in Newport, the busiest weekend of the year. You’ll be lucky to find one free room in the entire town”. We started to panic and prepare to spend a night in the car. Luckily after searching frantically the entire evening, we found one free room at the Johnson and Howard costing us $270. We really learned our lesson there.

Our first time being published on Style Me Pretty.
Editorial wedding shoot we shoot in early May at North Salem, NY. Although we could have done without the rain, the overcast created a very nice light to shoot in. It was such a treat to have plenty of time to shoot, something we wish we had during our real weddings. Check out the other people involved. One of the best in business.

Enjoy this emotionally filled wedding of Kaitlin and Zach from historic colonial New England town of Old Saybrook. Kaitlin dad was so genuinely happy for his daughter, so naturally we decided to start the entire film with his toast. We got to work with our photo friend and proud Dutch John Videler. Really fun to just watching him work. He wanted Kaitlin and Zach to ride the bikes on a pier. They almost agreed. Oh well.
