John and Dom

John and Dom got married at First Unitarian in Providence before heading over to The Dorrance for their reception. I’m not sure I’ve seen so much rain in such a short time at a wedding. Luckily, the wet part was short-lived and made it particularly warm and cozy to walk into a breath-taking space with a three-piece jazz band, cocktails and a table full of donuts. Ever since their engagement session this summer I’ve been looking forward to spending more time with John and Dom at their wedding. I couldn’t be happier for these two and am so glad to have been a part of such a fun day. Congrats, John and Dom!


Irene and Ben

Irene and Ben got married at the Charles River Museum of Industry. The way these two planned their wedding was a refreshing example of style for the sake of substance. They both got ready together in the same hotel suite. They surprised their guest by greeting them to the cocktail hour before the ceremony. The unity ceremony symbolizing two parts becoming one didn’t use candles or grains of sand: They used rum and ginger beer. And instead of cake cutting they had a ceremonial cookie milk dunking to open up the dessert bar. Pleasant surprises around every corner. Congratulations, Irene and Ben!


Kathleen and Nathan

I returned to the city of my birth for Kathleen and Nathan’s wedding at the Merrion-Wynne House in Raleigh. Kathleen’s sister and brother-in-law are dear friends of mine, but I didn’t get to meet Kathleen and Nathan until the wedding day. As if being in North Carolina didn’t feel enough like home, Kathleen and Nathan and all their friends and family were so charming and welcoming. The shrimp and grits, the Krispy-Creme donuts, and the bottle of bourbon buried on the property to guarantee good weather (it worked!) felt so pleasantly southern. This was such a great trip and fun wedding to photograph. Congratulations, Kathleen and Nathan!

Patti Anzenberger - Channing, it was such a pleasure to meet you and get to know you!

You are the best!!!! ๐Ÿ’•October 3, 2017 – 5:58 pm

Gina and Matteo

Gina and Matteo got married at the Crane Estate. Somehow this was my first time photographing a wedding at the venue, and it was an absolute pleasure. The space set the tone, and that feeling came across in the guests’ interactions and the whole mood of the wedding. Even the potentially-rabid raccoon that crashed the ceremony didn’t derail the vibe. It was so fun to capture the elegance of Gina and Matteo within the elegance of this special patch of land.

Katie and Rob

Katie and Rob got married at Mount Hope Farm in Bristol, RI. I had the chance to meet up with them last year when they were visiting from California and immediately felt a connection with them both creatively and personally. Photographing abundant smiles at one of my favorite venues will never get old. Congratulations, Katie and Rob!

Sandra Guy - So beautiful. The pictures captured the love these two have for each other, and the happiness of this beautiful day.September 20, 2017 – 12:34 pm

Caitlin and Russell

I hadn’t met Caitlin and Russell before their wedding, but I had collected apples from Caitlin’s parent’s property a decade earlier. I used to live in Vermont, and my friends Jen and Alex are neighbors with Caitlin’s parents. It was great to return to one of the most beautiful patches of land I’ve ever set foot on to celebrate with Caitlin and Russell. I love photographing weddings where an impromptu domesticated goose chase barely gets a mention among the guests. Thank you, Caitlin and Russell!

Christos Hadjichristou - What has just happened on this one!

One by one tailor made pictures. Channing well done!

In some way you have captured your own inspiration (hope it make sense).

Cara and Brett

Cara and Brett got married at the Newport Beach House in Rhode Island and brought much of New Jersey with them. Most people travelled for this wedding and from the constant laughter I’m guessing it was worth the trip. Cara and Brett were one of the most thoughtful couples I’ve had the pleasure of working with. They were very interested in the people around them being taken care of. It was such a pleasure just to be with them. Congratulations, Cara and Brett!

John and Dom

I had so much fun wandering around Boston with John and Dom. I learned a great deal about urban planning, and we also re-hashed three seasons of Broad City. On their wedding day I’ll refrain from talking about the new season released just prior. Anyways, thank you John and Dom for a great evening. Can’t wait for the wedding!
