Helena and Brian at Roger Williams Park

These two are totally cute! They are getting married in two weeks and wanted to do a practice run and get some fun shots together before the big day. We headed over to Roger Williams Park and had some fun posing all around. They did a great job and I was quite proud of them! Let me just add that Helena has the nicest skin ever, it looks like it has retouching when you look at her in person! it's perfect! I am so jealous.

Anyway, I am looking forward to their beautiful wedding day, and hoping for awesome weather like we had this week!


Adam and Eve?

Kiss me and...

I'll kiss you back.

The old seal house at the park, they used to have seals hangin around out in the open back in the day.

So sweet...and romantic, guys make a mental note!


Aren't they sweet?
See you guys soon!

Andrea and Howard 5-25-2008 at The Westin, Providence RI

Flowers by Anna at Snapdragons- she does such an amzing job and is so sweet to match!

I love this photo of Andrea she looks like a "vintage starlet"!

A beautiful moment between Howard and Andrea right before the ceremony, they were both REALLY nervous!
Andrea is radiant, and I love how the bottom of her dress swishes around her feet when she walks.
Happy Couple!

Andrea indulges my crazy ideas...

Super fun wall of tile at Waterplace park with many messages of Love, Hope, and Peace - how appropriate!

Andrea's friends were awesome! They totally love her!

How fun is this shot? We didn't let the bouquets hit the ground... the boys were standing behind us to catch them. We took a ton of these shots, this one is by Melissa- she caught the best of the batch. Nice job Melissa!

I shot this, but the pose was Melissa's idea- very nice.

Love this shot of the bridal party, Emily the bridesmaid is a champion jumper!

Andrea really wanted this shot, and Howard wasn't sad to pose this way!

Andrea and me, my new BFF!

Another Melissa spectacular special!

Anna nailed it with these flowers!

Last photo of the evening.... love that blue light in the windows behind them!

So, Andrea and Howard will be giving a seminar soon called "How to work-it for your wedding photos" Seriously! We had sooo much fun with them. Andrea was an absolute dream to photograph. She has an amazing sense of humor and more energy than 10 brides put together. Howard was funny and charming and totally cooperative. It was a marathon day- but it felt like it flew by. These pics are just the tip of the iceberg. Right before she walked down the aisle Andrea asked Melissa how many photos we typically give the client. Melissa told her around 1000. Andrea winked and said.. "make it 2000!" Now that's my kind of girl!

Coming to a Telephone Booth Near You....

This is my favorite photo from the weekend... taken by Melissa I might add! We photographed Andrea and Howard in Providence this Sunday and this was one of the last shots of the evening.
I had intended to post a lot more of the photos- but there are so many shots that we didn't even get through the editing. I think we may have set a record with these guys. Stay tuned for many more tomorrow!

Take some time...

As the craziness of each day takes over we often don't get to take any time for ourselves to relax and just breathe. So the challenge for everyone reading this is to take some time over this long weekend, no matter how short, and to just sit and calm your mind and body. Even just a few minutes can make a world of difference! If you are planning your wedding and are feeling overwhelmed and hectic, take the time to really experience what is happening and to think about what means the most to you and about the people you love. Happy weekend!

Mariah's "Farm-foto Photo Date" with Kathy and Neil

So I headed out to Rochester MA for my date with Kathy and Neil. Never heard of Rochester? Well, it just so happens to be my home town! Kathy has been friends with my sister since they were little, and I am so excited to be taking her wedding photos in July! Even though Kathy is 3 years younger than me, we actually had a Spanish class together in highschool. I guess you could say she "knew me when..." HA! Kathy and Neil are living in Indiana now- funny that these pics look like they could have been taken in Indiana! We actually did all of these shots at Kathy's parents home/super cute farm. K & N were really good sports about sitting on prickly hay, standing in tall buggy grass and getting into the bucket of her dad's loader! (Kathy's idea actually). The bonus was meeting Kathy's dog William, an absolute sweetheart and big mush, despite his formidable size. I was just glad he decided I was cool- not lame and let me take his pics! Thanks guys- love ya, see you in July!

Happy Birthday Mom!

Just wanted to give a shout out to my mom on her birthday! Although I'm sure she will be horrified that I put her photo on the blog... Anyway, she is the best! We are heading down to the Cape today to spend the weekend, but she will be moving to Rhode Island soon, so we are very excited about that!
Especially my son Isaac who is totally insane for his Mimi, love you mom! -Trish

Happy Dance!

Why are Mariah and Trish so happy that they are dancing? Because we got this awesome note from our friends Kim and Kevin....
"We just love the images from our weding day and are so appreciative of Snap's work. You two are true professionals and have an amazing ability to capture all the events of the day- like I said before, I knew we were going to work together after seeing your website for the first time. You make things comfortable for the bride and groom during a stressful time and know exactly what to shoot. Your shots are contemporary yet follow the traditions of a special day. Love ya both for what you did on our wedding day!"
Kim and Kevin- Ditto!!!!

Oscar Speaks...

"Well, I am not waiting a minute longer, where is my yacht?! This is an outrage, seriously. this going to be in the Fall J Paw catalog? 'cause I am workin' this shirt, even though I am totally humiliated."
"I see you doing that, let's just go ahead and give me the treat, look at my sit and stay skills!"

"Oh my gosh, why are you man-handling me like this? What did I do? Please put me down, for the love of pete! (he's my friend from the dog park by the way) it's just too much!"

"I see you seeing me and all of my cuteness right now, you know it's true. Guess what...I love you too."
