Kevin + Jordan

Spring House Hotel

New Shoreham, RI

Kevin and Jordan’s Block Island destination wedding was a beachy, boho masterpiece! This was an emotional, meaningful weekend for Jordan’s family, as they have vacationed on Block Island for generations prior. Our wedding photography and videography team had the best time getting to know the bride and groom over the long weekend they spent together. Creativity ran wild as we explored all the island had to offer through drone coverage and renting some mopeds prior to the day of the wedding! This fun loving, down to earth couple made the weekend unforgettable.

I can’t help but smile and tear up as I write this review for Move Mountains. We partnered with them for our wedding in September on Block Island, Rhode Island and we could not have worked with a more perfect team to capture our special wedding weekend. From our initial conversations a year before through the final logistics of the big day, it felt like we were working with a group of our best friends. It was easy, natural and amazing. We had the awesome opportunity to work with 5 amazing MM team members. They were so incredibly helpful when organizing the weekend with us. I haven’t even gotten to the final product - our pictures and videos! We received our AMAZING pictures so quickly and I was at a loss for words when looking through them. All the emotions came flooding back and I couldn’t believe how beautiful they were. We’re so excited to receive our videos soon and I know they will be absolutely breathtaking. Thank you MM for being so incredibly wonderful during the best weekend of our lives! We love you guys!

Mike + Mel

Mad River Barn

Waitsfield, VT

Mike and Mel’s destination wedding at Mad River Barn in Waitsfield, Vermont was a dream come true! Our wedding photographers and videographers teamed up with an all-star vendor crew to make this New England Wedding one of our favorites from the season. Having a wedding planner made a world of difference for this Boston Couple, they could simply celebrate and let their upbeat and genuine love flourish. Thanks to Cristen & Co. the day went by seamlessly and allowed our team to get some incredible wedding photos and wedding video at this up and coming barn venue. We can’t wait to do it all again soon!

Paul + Meredith

Fort Adams

Newport, RI

Paul and Meredith’s romantic summer wedding was not one to be forgotten! Our wedding team had the honor of shooting both photo and video for this sweet couple at Fort Adams in Newport, Rhode Island! Our wedding photographers and wedding videographers loved getting to explore the venue’s diverse architecture, giving our team multiple opportunities to shoot photos both inside and outside! Whether it be inside for the first look, down by the water for bridal party photos, or inside the tent for the reception, we couldn’t get enough of their simple elegance! And of course, we couldn’t forget that AMAZING dessert bar, complimented by the ice cream shop where the bride and groom first met! It was a pleasure getting to capture and share their unique, sentimental story for them to relive in the years to come! If you’re planning your wedding and looking for your photography and videography team to catch moments like these, reach out to us and we can make it happen!

Sean and his team at Move Mountains could not have been better to work with. Their professionalism and expertise took so much stress out of our day and our comfort with the Move Mountains photographers really showed in our photos. Our video came out exactly how we asked and the entire team went above and beyond to make our day special. We couldn’t recommend Move Mountains enough to anyone planning their wedding!

Fort Adam's and Her Siren

Inspiration and Initiative

This shoot was inspired by Ben Sasso's work! if you don't know who he is make sure you check out his stuff. I love his style, the type of models he chooses, his often odd prop choices, simple wardrobe choices, and his willingness to help other artists like myself, as I attribute 95% of my photography knowledge from pestering other photographers.

Fort Adam's and Her Siren

Fort Adam's was built in 1798 and named after President John Adam's and was active in five major wars. Today it's a State Park, has a great vibe and is a great place to shoot (no pun intended). The inner rooms are covered in old shiplap and there are antique couches floating around that are great for creative shoots, wedding shoots and engagement photos!

I'd been wanting to shoot at Fort Adam's ever since we helped load film for John Abbott as he photographed up and coming Jazz artist's at the Newport's Jazz Festival or maybe it's been since my best friend got married there back in 2015 (truly a unique wedding venue!)

Since we are mostly in the wedding photography game it's rare that we get a chance to get to work on purely creative projects but it's always a joy when we are able to. This was the first time I had shot Briana and I couldn't be more pleased with the results. She was perfect for the fort and brought the exact energy to the shoot that I hoped she would, although as hard as I persisted she would not play that trumpet (or bugle, not pictured).

Frequency Separation

For photographers...

For the editing I used Ben Sasso's Heck Yeah Presets (The Bright Pack) with Lightroom/Photoshop and a method of photo retouching called frequency separation. It was my second time working with this method. I originally went with using the first tutorial I found on Youtube here, but wasn't getting the results I wanted. I emailed Ben and he sent over the video that he learned from which seems like an even more time consuming method but I think the results are better (however, at that point I was about 75% through the photos and couldn't start over). That video can be found here

If you look at the results of the process, it is definitely worth the time invested.
