After Alaina & Mike’s gorgeous wedding at the Ocean House in Watch Hill, Rhode Island, we had the chance to also capture a Just Married session with the couple the day after their wedding! I love these sessions because it’s a great chance to utilize a beautiful location, or just capture additional, laid back images of the newlyweds without the time and location restraints often confining us on the wedding day. Some photographers call these Day After sessions or Trash the Dress, but I like to call them “Just Married” sessions because a) you can do this anytime after you wedding, not just the day after; and b) you don’t have to trash your gorgeous gown unless you want to!
During this session Alaina, Mike, Whitney and I had such a fun time exploring the beautiful beaches of Watch Hill. I just love the casual, laid back vibe of this sleepy town. I am dreaming of returning as soon as possible!
I have to give a huge, special thanks to my amazing friend/colleague/associate/photographer extraordinaire, Whitney, who flew all the way from Minneapolis to NYC to meet me and endure a 4+ hour road trip up the I-95 across Connecticut to shoot this wedding with me! I’m sure Whitney will agree that all the travel was well worth it for this amazing couple and fabulous location. We really enjoyed our time with Alaina & Mike and exploring Watch Hill and Mystic, Connecticut. The food in Mystic… mmmmm, delightful! (The ice cream was especially amazing!)
Of course, another big thank you to Alaina and Mike for being amazing hosts and entrusting us to be a part of your wedding weekend!! :-)
I love this last shot. This shot was Mike’s idea and sole request. It felt like a nice way to end the session!
