OCEANCLIFF RESORT WEDDINGS BY MASSART PHOTOGRAPHY, A RHODE ISLAND STUDIO FOCUSING ON WEDDING, MATERNITY, NEWBORN, AND FAMILY PORTRAITURE.

 Bride and bridesmaids under the arch at Ocean Cliff Resort photographed by Massart Photography Rhode IslandOver the years, I have had the pleasure of photographing weddings at Ocean Cliff Resort several times. With it being one of my favorite venues, I decided to make a post to highlight some favorite moments.

This particular couple was really really hoping for a sunset portrait but alas, the sun was nowhere to be found. By using artificial light and a colored gel, they got just what they wanted!

The following five weddings all had something in common: a first look. I promise this post isn’t about pushing first looks, this is purely coincidental. A first look allows the couple more time for portraits BEFORE the ceremony. It’s also an intimate moment they get to share. By doing this, these couples were able to knock out the formals early and get portraits both before AND after the ceremony, which in some cases, allows for sunset images!

I love the archway for SO many reasons. It can be the perfect backdrop for a masculine portrait just as well as it turns romantic when flooded with sunlight, as you will see below!Black and white portrait of the groom and groomsmen photographed by Massart Photography RI
