Tom + Charity- Day After Session- Block Island, Rhode Island

The day after Tom and Charity’s wedding was a completely different day than the one before!  They have the term ‘night and day’ for situations like this! I am very glad we pre-arranged for their portraits session to be the day after. With the combination of their timeline and the hurricane, it would have been impossible!  The day was a bit chilly, but we took the chilly wind and sun combination over a blazing hurricane!

Tom and Charity came back to the 1661 Inn to get redressed and we ventured out to the grounds of the Spring House Hotel for portraits outside.

The sun really cuts into the cold and makes everything great!  

The Southeast Lighthouse is iconic on Block Island. The Block Island Southeast Lighthouse was built in 1874 on a ten acre plot of land on the southern tip of Block Island. When the lighthouse was built, three hundred feet of land lay between it and the edge of Mohegan Bluffs and the ocean. Over the next hundred years the bluff eroded to within seventy-five feet of the light. If something wasn’t done soon, the light would light fall into the ocean. On August 13, 1993, the lighthouse started its move inland. It took nineteen days to move it to a new location, three hundred feet from the bluff.  (Information taken from http://rhodeislandlighthousehistory.info)

From the light house, we moved to the bluffs. This was the original idea for the ceremony location, but the spacing was a bit cramped. So the idea was to have the wedding on the lawn of the Spring House Hotel, although that obviously wouldn’t work due to the hurricane! This was a beautiful spot for photos though!

I saw this spot down below, wanted to put my clients there, but the trail to get down there was a bit cumbersome. They were up for it in a heartbeat! Charity kicked off her shoes, tucked the veil into her dress, and they made their way down to the bluff!  I love this view of them on the bluff with the calm ocean around it!

The last stop on our island tour was the house they stayed at post honeymoon.  The field reminded me of something out of Pride and Prejudice. Continue reading

Sending the bride and groom out for a walk during portraits. It keeps you moving, and creates a natural set of photos.

One ring to rule them all! I saw this beautiful patch of light while I was photographing the rings. The ring is thick enough to stand up which made for a cool image!

I often aim to hang the dress in some really pretty light, but a trellis will do just fine too!

Having your dress laced up in the back is a beautiful detail to a wedding dress. It can also add some time to the getting ready process. Have who ever is lacing you up practice before the wedding day!

Final touches for the bride! Sometimes, when putting on a wedding dress, it can knock out a few strands of hair. Always have extra pins and hair spray on hand, just in case!

That moment right before the bride taps the groom on the shoulder. The groom hears his wife, and the bride gets flooded with emotion. It’s a really fun part of the first look!

Finally! First looks give a bride and groom a moment’s peace before the whirlpool of festivities, a chance for portraits in the natural light, and creates less stress on the rest of the day.
