Kara & Tom's Block Island Wedding

Bride & Groom kiss on the pier

I met Kara and Tom at a friend's wedding I photographed last year. After deciding to hire me as their photographer we got together for an engagement photography session that yielded splendid results and helped us get to know each other better.

Kara & Tom decided to get married on Block Island, where they had already spent some special times together. I had not been to the island before, and was blown away by the beauty of the place. I took the Block Island Ferry from Naragansett, RI to get there, and got to see the island change from a speck on the horizon into a giant mass of land rising up from the water, with beaches and cliffs and quaint little tourist attractions. And the wonderful smell of the ocean.

The ceremony & reception were held at the 1661 Inn. It was a cozy place, perfect for the size of the weddings. It was also close enough to the beach and the ocean to make for some nice backgrounds. Kara & Tom took me to a lighthouse, some cliffs, and a beach for the bride & groom portraits. As the sun descended on the horizon we all got our feet wet in the ocean and on the pier where we captures some of my favorite photographs from the day.

Thank you Kara & Tom, for a great wedding and making me feel a part in your special day. I hope you have many years of love and growing together.
