Weekend of June 21st

Monday, June 23rd, 2008

So far in my entire career  I had never worked the same venue two days in a row until last weekend.  It was at the Officer’s Club in Newport. One if the weddings was shot by my staff photographer, Kim.  I was not booked that day, so I decided to stop in for the formals.  I lent Kim a pair of crocs and we ventured into the water.  The groom carried his bride which I thought was so fun.


On Sunday I was back to photograph the N. wedding.  It was a very intimate affair with only forty people.  The skys were overcast for the sunset, but I think this often creates a dramatic portrait.


I will not be blogging for two weeks due to vacation.  There is still room in my schedule for Beach sessions if any one is interested.  Just email me.  Hopefully, I will have a ton of  great photograhs when I get back.

Happy fourth.

This week I photographed at Squantum Association. I love this venue because it is where Chris and I got married. I feel I know every spot to take photos. At least until the next wedding when I find more.



On Father’s day I photographed the C. family. They are my neighbors and watch my children time to time. It seems like yesterday that we moved in and their kids seemed so young.  

I know that Mom C. is a more traditional lady when it comes to her photos, but I thought this shot was alot of fun.  Go Team!

It was a very busy weekend.  On Friday night at 10pm, I received a call from J.  She had just learned that the hotel her wedding was going to take place at the following day had been shut down due to electrical problems.  It is safe to say that she was in a panic.  The hotel responded by moving the reception to its sister hotel.  No one had even seen the room, though they didn’t have much of a choice.  After their ceremony everyone wanted to go the beach to take photos, but they not sure where to go.  Luckily, I had gotten there earlier that afternoon to take a look around.  They didn’t realize the resort had a private beach for their own use.  All’s well that end’s well.


My staff photographer, Kim, was out photographing as well that day.  It was a very small intimate wedding.  She’s the queen of Newport.  Since she had gone to school there, she knows every short cut to beat the limo. This weekend she had taken C. and J. in her own car to take them to unique spots. I love this photo of them in her rear view.leonard672008-391-copy.jpg

This Saturday I worked with Richard Kizarian http://www.kizirianphotography.com/in Newport. It has been a while since I had second shot. It was real cool to get shots that are not mandatory as a lead photographer. I did realize that I need to start taking yoga again since it was my first wedding after having Ella. My legs were a bit sore from bending and running around. It felt real great to be able to move again. 


On Sunday I was on location for family portraits. It was great I went to their homes with a portable studio.  We had done some studio shots and then their front steps and backyard.   Mom had the idea of feet with jeans and I had the idea of posing little L. feet in the middle. I love these types of  portraits lately. I think they are so fun and different.
