It is always an honor to be asked to photograph a wedding and to be part of the planning process. To know that someone loves your work and entrusts you to capture their wedding day memories is no small task! Which is why I was thrilled with my friend from college / Phi Mu sister asked us to photograph her wedding on May 10th in Westerly, RI. I first met Alexandra back in 2003 when we both were pledging Phi Mu at the University of Hartford. Being in the same pledge class, we hung out a lot and became good friends. I still miss our Halloween costumes when we dressed up at Naughty Secretaries with our friend Allison or who could forget Sangria Saturdays!? I do miss our college days!

Fast forward 11 years {OMG, that’s crazy} to when Alexandra contacted us to discuss photography options for her wedding. Since her and her fiancé, Will, are located out of state, we didn’t shoot their engagement session until two days before the wedding. It worked out perfectly!

We met them at her parents house in Westerly and did photos in the neighborhood and by the water. The weather was overcast which is perfect for photos as the clouds diffuse the lighting so it is not as harsh. It did rain lightly also, but you can hardly tell! They even brought their dog, Tucker, on the shoot!

Here are some of our favorites – be on the look out for their wedding blog post in a few weeks! In the meantime, we’d love it if you LIKED our Facebook Business Page!
