Jasmine and Raul’s wedding at the Hotel Viking in Newport Rhode Island

Jasmine and Raul were married at the Hotel Viking in Newport, Rhode Island on a beautiful day surrounded by their closest friends and family. That is a sentence I can use at many of the weddings that we photograph, (sans the location) but never has the phrase, “surrounded by their closest friends and family” meant more. There were less than twenty people at the wedding, just as they intended. We headed to the ceremony site, and the light in the church was heavenly… no pun intended. It was so intimate, and so close among everyone there that we felt like we were ALL vital to the ceremony in some way. As Raul said his vows to Jasmine, I can only assume that they rest of the people there were crying as hard as I was. It was unbearably romantic.

Following the ceremony we hung out all over the town taking photographs of the newlyweds. I love the way everyone cheers and claps for the bride and groom when we are out and about with them. This time a family even stopped and took a photo with Jasmine and Raul! We headed back to the Hotel, where Jasmine changed into a reception dress so she could dance a little more free with Raul for their very important and choreographed first dance. They had been practicing for weeks! We all sat down for dinner, including Dan and I and the officiant, which blew me away in such an intimate setting. It was truly an honor to be a part of their wedding day.

Hey there!

This is a photo of me in a burger bar in Stockholm Sweden. I am about to drink the best beer I have ever had. It's a pretty important photo of me. I just remember feeling filled with joy and so so glad to be alive. That's a good place to start on getting to know me.


I like to travel.

I like beer.

I like the person who was across the table from me. Any guesses who?
