On the way to the windmill Erica and Paul found the most adorable spot! Loved the cows and the view of the iconic Jamestown bridge in the background!  Finally we made it way to the windmill to finish out our Rhode Island engagement session.

Thanks for having me come along Erica and Paul!  Can't wait until their Aldrich Mansion wedding! 

Also stay tuned for Amber and Ernesto's engagement session in historic downtown New Bedford!  I photographed their engagement session on the same day and both have a very different feel!

Hope you have a great evening and thanks for visiting!

Tirrell Room Wedding - Melissa and Jonathan {Boston Wedding Photographer} http://www.andreajay.com/blog/2015/11/tirrell-room-wedding---melissa-and-jonathan-boston-wedding-photographer Melissa and Jonathan were married at The Tirrell Room in Quincy overlooking the City with a very lively reception at Chau Chow City in Chinatown, Boston.  I got to know them a little bit during their late summer Assembly Row, Somerville engagement session.  The lion dance was spectacular!

Melissa was stunning in an Allure Bridal dress and she even had a shorter more informal second dress for later in the evening!   She chose a pretty pale pink for the bridesmaids and she had a beautiful pink bridal bouquet, and a family friend made her cake!

Congratulations on your wedding, Melissa and Jonathan!

What's in my bag: Nikkor 105mm 2.8 micro AF-D {Gear for wedding photographers} http://www.andreajay.com/blog/2015/10/whats-in-my-bag-nikkor-105mm-2-8-micro-af-d-gear-for-wedding-photographers What's in my bag photography gear Nikkor 105 mm micro lens for wedding photographers I'm really excited to kick off my what's in my bag series!  I hope to do a collection of posts about my favorite gear that I use during the weddings that I photograph!  

First up is the Nikkor 105mm 2.8 micro AF-D.   What is a micro lens, you ask?  Its only Nikon's designation for macro lenses, meaning that you can focus very closely. Simple as that.

I use this lens several times during the day.  Usually starting off with bridal prep for some shoe, dress or bouquet details.  The macro capabilities allow me to get *thisclose* and the focal length means that I can use the compression to have a narrow field of vision so that I can photograph these beautiful details without some of the distracting elements in the background.  Because, major clutter happens in bridal suites.  It just does.  Here are some lovely examples of the details I photographed as part of Jenni and Keith's Wachusett Mountain Ski Area wedding and Melissa and Nick's Buttonwoods Casino Wedding earlier this summer.

This lens comes out again when I'm photographing the wedding reception details , so silverware, cake, flower arrangements, tablescapes, and other luscious wedding reception details.  I love Kay and Simon's simple and elegant decor at their Riverway Lobster House Wedding last summer.

And of course, it comes out again for rings.  You can see some additional macro ring photographs on my blog (here), so I'll just post a few more recent ones :).  These are mostly either photographed during bridal prep if the bride has all the rings, or during the time that the couple is eating their meal.  These are all hand held and composed using auto focus.  I think the key to using this lens for the macro ring shots is that I stop down to f/11, and absolute minimum would be f/9.

But there's more!  I also use the macro for portraits if the fancy strikes me.  I find it to be very sharp, but also out of convenience, like the time I was photographing Laura and Tim's North End Boston engagement session and as we were walking back to the T, they walked through some smoking golden hour pockets of light.  Turned out to be some of my favorite images of the session :)

Some comments on this lens - its not the newer VR version.  At the time that I purchased this lens, I viewed it as a niche lens, and only thought I'd be using it once per wedding for the ring photographs.   I thought wrong.  If I could do it again differently, I'd spend the extra cash for the VR version because you do have to stop down so far for those ring shots, so the VR would help me shoot at lower shutter speeds since I do the ring photographs hand held (without a tripod), and the AF-G lenses are optically better and focus fast.  That being said, my D-lens is built like a tank, and made in Japan.  Its all metal and feels very substantial.  I won't be upgrading it unless it breaks down.  

Are you a photographer that uses macro/micro lenses?  What's your macro lens of choice and how do you use it during the wedding day?  I always love to hear different perspectives, so feel free to comment below!

Also, check back for my other blog posts for my "what's in my bag series" (I'll be linking up as I go!)

Melissa was stunning in an Allure Bridal dress and she even had a shorter more informal second dress for later in the evening!   She chose Tiffany blue and purple for the bridesmaids and she had a beautiful DIY bouquet of light pink tea roses, and a cake made by her loving aunt:)

Congratulations on your wedding, Stephanie and Matthew!

Melissa was stunning and yet effortless in a Nicole Miller Bridal dress and I loved her dramatic dark lips, bold move for a bride - and she completely rocked it!

Congratulations on your wedding, Melissa and Nick!

They were also married at one of my favorite venues for Massachusetts weddings, Wachusett Mountain Ski Area in Princeton, MA.  Since the weather was great, Jenni and Keith went on the Skyride, a defining characteristic of the venue, canoodling all the way to the top of Wachusett Mountain for a romantic view out of this world.

I was really touched by how much in love Jennifer and Keith are, and so down to earth.  They have a very warm and easy going nature to them, and Jennifer was always quick to smile and laugh.  They opted for first look, and Keith was just stunned at how gorgeous Jennifer looked.  He couldn't take his eyes off her!  

Congratulations Jennifer and Keith!  I wish so many years of happiness and love!

Wedding Inspiration: Celebrating Grandparents at Weddings {Rhode Island Wedding Photographer} http://www.andreajay.com/blog/2015/9/celebrating-grandparents-at-weddings-rhode-island-wedding-photographer In honor of Grandparents Day, last Sunday, I'm thrilled to put together a blog post including some of my favorite images of grandparents at weddings and the special ways that brides and grooms honor their beloved grandparents on their special wedding day :)  Laura and Tim feature prominently in this one because I recently finished up with their amazing gallery and they had lots of special grandparent moments.  

On of my favorite images this year is Laura kissing her Grandma while walking down the aisle with her uncle at her Cape Cod Museum of Art Wedding.  #onions.

Laura also honored her departed grandfather by sewing in a heart shaped piece of his work shirt into her dress, here she is showing it to her grandma <3 Cape Cod Art Museum Wedding PhotographyHonoring grandparents at weddings

Tim's grandparents are also pretty cute, here they are on deck for family formals :) Cape Cod Art Museum Wedding PhotographyHonoring grandparents at weddings Katie chose to honor her loved ones by having their photos on her DIY rose bouquet.

I loved watching Keith's grandfather tugging at his beard, newly trimmed for his Wachusett Mountain Ski Area wedding.

Naomi and Keith Engaged! {Fort Wetherill Rhode Island Engagement Photos} http://www.andreajay.com/blog/2015/9/naomi-and-keith-engaged-fort-wetherill-rhode-island-engagement-photos I've known Keith and Naomi for a while through Keith's sister Desiree who is like extended family to us!  I was so obviously delighted and honored when Keith and Naomi reached out to me to be their wedding photographer.  Keith and Naomi exhud a casual confidence about each other so they sure do make my job so very easy.  I was thrilled when I learned about their hunting themed engagement session complete with Keith's beloved truck and a bow and arrows....Naomi's "hunt is over" for the perfect man ;)  Fits so perfectly with their plan for an elegant rustic wedding.

We started off at a place that is very dear to Keith - His parents' beautiful home and expansive yard.  We then headed out to another special place, Fort Wetherill in Jamestown, where Keith proposed to Naomi.  I loved the scenery here and definitely wanted to feature the wide open spaces of the amazing cliffs and capture the adventurous and energetic energy of these two!

Featured: Self Portraits of Motherhood {Honest Motherhood, Rhode Island Photographer} http://www.andreajay.com/blog/2015/9/featured-self-portraits-of-motherhood-honest-motherhood-rhode-island-photographer I posted previously here on my blog how I had recently become enamored with the Self Portraits of Motherhood facebook page.  
 

It was a very pleasant and unexpected surprise to find my self portrait of me and baby Alexandra that I had shared with their page featured on their wonderful blog (click the link!!!)!  The mamas and photographers featured this month are so talented and I feel very thankful to be included in such a wonderful group. 
 

Photographed with a Nikon D600, Tamron 24-70, f/2.8, handheld in front of me and Alexandra using live view focus.  I hope to participating in the monthly themes more frequently and sharing them on my blog!  Thanks for visiting today, A

Jonathan Edwards Winery Wedding {Wedding Second shooting for Janet Gerbutavich Photography} http://www.andreajay.com/blog/2015/8/jonathan-edwards-winery-wedding-second-shooting-for-janet-gerbutavich-photography I definitely do love to do a whole lot of second shooting for weddings when given the opportunity!  Its always fun to networking with other talented Rhode Island wedding photographers, build relationships with them and be of assistance in any way that I can.  I was thrilled to be available when Rhode Island wedding photographer Janet Gerbutavich asked me to join in as a second photographer for Nina and Ben's Stonington Connecticut Wedding at Jonathan Edwards Winery!    
 

They were a lively bunch; Ben looked very dapper in his Navy enlisted dress whites, Nina obviously a gorgeous a bride.  The bridesmaids wore fresh raspberry bridesmaids dresses, add in a beautiful and compliant flower girl and ring bearer and I was in heaven. 
 

They had such a great first look among the grape vines!  Nina and Ben were so very happy during their ceremony, so it was filled with lots of laughter and funny moments.  Nina and Ben's romance was so compelling, they met in middle school, but their relationship only took a romantic turn as adults.  They were actually married last year during a hurricane, so this was their love celebration (please do visit Janet's blog here for the details!).  One of my favorite aspect of second shooting weddings is that I have the opportunity to photograph the amazing wedding details so lovingly put together by the couple and their family.  I also love to throw in a couple of behind the scenes shots of the lead wedding photographer working their magic!
 

Congrats Nina and Ben, and many thanks to Janet Gerbutavich Photography!

Self Portraits of Motherhood {Honest Motherhood, Rhode Island Photographer} http://www.andreajay.com/blog/2015/8/self-portraits-of-motherhood-honest-motherhood-rhode-island-photographer I recently became very captivated by the self portraits shared by mothers on the Self Portraits of Motherhood facebook page.  My interest in beautiful photography was renewed when I was pregnant with my son as a way to document all of the crazy, heartwarming and memorable times to come.  I have found that I am hardly *in* any photos with my kids though (my mother was also handy with a camera as a hobbiest, so I also remember very few photos of her also - so a familiar problem for mothers who love photography).  I just want my children to know that I was there with them when they get older, maybe to look a photo and remark on how young I looked 'back then'.
 

My second self portrait that I shared with the page was my youngest daughter playing with my mouth :)  I just noticed the juxtaposition of the formal portraits of my three kids with the organic moment.  It seemed fitting for the current theme on the page of {Honest Motherhood}.
 

Photographed with a Nikon D600, Tamron 24-70, f/2.8, handheld in front of me and Alexandra using live view focus.  I hope to participating in the monthly themes more frequently and sharing them on my blog!  Thanks for visiting today, A

The Litchfield Inn Wedding - Samantha and James {Litchfield, CT Wedding Photographer} http://www.andreajay.com/blog/2015/8/Litchfield-Inn-wedding From the handsome groom, James: 'We really love your work and love how the moments you capture seem so natural and organic" 
 

Aside from being so very beautiful, pleasant and loving, Samantha and James are so fun and easy going.  They were married at the gorgeous Litchfield Inn, the grounds are very quaint and the inside recently underwent renovations, so very modern and updated interiors.  I started off the day with Samantha during her bridal prep.  They were married at Saint Anthony's at Padula Church and we stole away for some couples portraits in front of Litchfield Inn.  
 

Samantha's dress and veil were just absolutely stunning, and James was very dapper in his tux.  I'm so very excited to share just a few highlights from their bridal prep and couples portraits <3
 

Congratulations Samantha and James!

Wedding Inspiration: Engagement and Wedding Rings {Rhode Island Wedding Photographer} http://www.andreajay.com/blog/2015/8/wedding-inspiration-beautiful-engagement-and-wedding-ring-photography Wedding and engagement ring photography is always one of my favorite part of the day.  I slap my micro lens on my camera and go find something shiny to pose the rings on or the couple's flowers.  Here are some of my favorite ring shots, mostly natural light, or lit with an LED light and photographed with a Nikkor micro 105 mm AF-D lens for the camera people out there.

Publick House Historic Inn Wedding - Amy and Phil {Sturbridge, MA Wedding Photographer} http://www.andreajay.com/blog/2015/7/publick-house-historic-inn-wedding---amy-and-phil-sturbridge-ma-wedding-photographer From the beautiful bride, Amy: 'We just love how you capture the honest and fun moments between the moments".

Amy and Joe are my dream wedding!  Aside from being so very pleasant and animated themselves, their family is larger than life and so supportive and loving.    They were married at on of my favorite Central Massachusetts venues, Publick House in Sturbridge.  I started off the day with Amy during her bridal prep.  They were married at the gazebo site and we stole away for some couples portraits in the meadow at Publick House.  

I loved the lit up LOVE sign they had as decoration during their reception.  We finished off the night with some night time wedding photos featuring the happy couple in the hay loft at the old barn and outside. 

Congratulations Amy and Phil!

Kinney Bungalow at Sunset Farm Wedding - Heidi and Dan {Narragansett Wedding Photographer} http://www.andreajay.com/blog/2015/7/Kinney-bungalow-wedding Heidi and Dan's wedding was a classic affair for a classic and elegant couple.  I got to know them a little bit during their Goodard Park engagement session, and they are very warm, intelligent and funny.   They were married at Wakefield Baptist church with a stop along the way for wedding photos at the iconic towers in Narragansett and an lovely reception at the Kinney Bungalow at Sunset Farm.  Kinney Bungalow is a lovely venue for a laidback wedding, the building itself boasts a vintage charm featured in the exposed brick walls, and the gorgeous lights that grace the ceiling. Heidi and Dan also posed in front of the iconic barn at Sunset Farm.  Congrats to Heidi and Dan and their family!
 

Big thanks to my second photographer Steven Houle and thanks to the vendors that made this wedding great!
