Spring Wedding Belle Mer

May 27, 2020

I’ve had Amanda and Anthony’s late spring wedding at Belle Mer on my MUST BLOG list for a while. Now with less shooting, and more blogging time, I’ve finally been able to get to it! Imagine my surprise when I realized that next week will mark Amanda and Anthony’s 2 year anniversary. How is that two whole years have gone by?! This lovely, sweet, family-centered day seems like it happened last month, but here we are coming up on June again- so Happy Anniversary Amanda and Anthony!

Bride and Groom Prep

Amanda and Anthony got ready at The Newport Marriott

We love the neutral palette in the rooms – makes for timeless photos.











First Look

We chose the entrance at Belle Mer for the first look because the light was nice and soft and the background was uncluttered.

Photo Pit-Stop at The Lighthouse on Goat Island

Amanda had her heart set on a photo with a lighthouse- we took a few quick images to make that vision come true.


Formals on the lawn at Belle Mer

We love shooting the formals on the lawn. Using a long lens, you can bring that bridge nice and close to the subjects. It’s a bit of photo trickery- it’s amazing how lens choice can completely change the look of a photo.

Crazy for these flower girls- what little beauties!


Love this soft spring palette and the fabric of these bridesmaids dresses!

Pre Ceremony

Wonder what we are doing in the 20-30 minutes leading up to the ceremony while the wedding party is sequestered? These kinds of photos…

It’s Go Time!


Behind the scenes during the processional are the best photos! It’s like being in the sings during a play- the excitement is palpable!

Cocktail Hour

The setting, candids, yummy food … it’s a can’t miss, and luckily for Amanda and Anthony, they don’t have to because they had a first look and knocked those formal photos out of the park!

The light changes so fast, you can get tow completely different sunset vibes within just a few minutes of shooting.

Second vote for #wallworthy framer!

ParTay Time



Note: LOVE this up-lighting color choice- soft and pretty, photographs great! I believe it is a blush, or soft pink. Stay away from amber (yellow)- it doesn’t translate well in the reception photos!








Farewell Photos


We try to take a “last photo” before we leave to tie the whole evening in one happy little knot. It’s important for the end of your album, so Trish will insist on it- even if you’re all sweaty from bustin’ your moves on the dance floor. And, if that’s the case it will feel nice to take five in the cool night air anyway!


We love Belle Mer so much and miss shooting there this spring. Here’s a another BLOG POST to check out if you can’t get enough either. 🙂
