WEDDING | Conanicut Yacht Club Wedding with Jason and Alexa

Unfortunately, most engaged couples do not see the value of hiring a professional photographer until after their wedding day. Often times when they either had a bad experience with their wedding photographer or just aren’t a fan of their photos and in some cases, they never receive their photos!  And with weddings, there is only one chance to get it right so its important to do your research ahead of time. Luckily, our clients never have to worry about stuff like this. Below is a review from Jason and Alexa who just picked up their wedding images last night {4 weeks after their wedding}.

Nicole was fantastic to work with! She made the planning process easy, was super communicative and has serious talent. My husband and I are so incredibly happy with our wedding photos and everyone we know compliments us on how well they came out. Thanks Nicole!

Jason and Alexa {and their dog, Frank} were a pleasure to work with! We photographed their engagement session in Jamestown this past October as they wanted to use the photos on their Save the Dates. They also ordered a Guest Sign In Book that was used at their wedding on their card table.

The wedding itself was gorgeous! We met Alexa at her parents home in Jamestown where I stayed to photograph her and the girls getting ready. Paul ended up taking one of the guys tuxedo’s with him to Newport as it was left behind {see, we really are more than just your wedding photographers!}.

We coordinated their “first look” back at Alexa’s parents house before heading to a private residence near Beavertail for formal photos.

The weather held out long enough for us to get back to the Conanicut Yacht Club and Jason and Alexa were able to still have their ceremony outside overlooking the water. Frank of course was also part of the wedding. He strolled down the aisle {on his own} wearing a bowtie right before Alexa and her Dad walked down the aisle.

The rest of the night was a blast and we enjoyed working closely with our industry friends:
