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.

Kegan + Sade Engagement Session

These two are the most adorable couple I have ever met! I can't wait to shoot their wedding in September! Kegan owns and operates his own landscaping company and Sade does the books. Kegan used to work at this farm and so we used it to shoot their engagement photos.

Location: Cucumber Hill Farm, Foster, RI
