Massart Photographers capture an OceanCliff Wedding in Rhode Island

Wedding Photography in RI, CT, MA

Natalie and Scott tied the knot with a small, intimate wedding at the beautiful OceanCliff Resort in Newport, Rhode Island and I don’t think I can put into words how perfectly this wedding turned out. A good photographer can walk into any situation and combat light; that said, photographers aren’t magicians! I don’t think there has ever been a better outcome for an outdoor ceremony! There was pretty much a 100% chance of thunderstorms and we saw the clouds rolling in just five minutes before the ceremony! Since the ceremony was short and the crowd small, Natalie and Scott decided to take their chances… Guys, I hope you’ve been hitting the slot machines lately because luck is on your side! The thunderstorms we escaped left us with stunning, bright blue skies and the overcast setting allowed for gorgeous soft light. This geek talk translates to: we could shoot from any side and angle without having to worry about harsh, unflattering shadows! This is VERY exciting for photographers! Anyway, that’s enough of the boring stuff!  Scroll down to see their beautiful wedding for yourselves!

How classy is this whole thing!?!?!

I love this dramatically lit portrait of Natalie walking to the ceremonybride walks down the staircase to go to the wedding ceremony at oceancliff resort in newport rhode island RI

Since this was a small intimate wedding, our coverage was altered which is why you wont see photos of the handsome groom getting ready (plus he was fully dressed when we arrived!) but we wanted to catch a couple portraits of him! You matter too Scott!!!!

One of my favorite things to capture (as I’m writing this, I’m realizing that I have lots of favorite things lol but hey that’s not a bad problem to have!) is the couple’s friends and family’s emotion during the ceremony. There is so much going on so quickly that there is no way a bride and groom ever get to take it all in, which is why we do our best to let them relive it from a different perspective. wedding ceremony at oceancliff resort in newport rhode island RI

A minor disadvantage of church ceremonies is that photographers are severely limited in where they can go; this is why we take advantage of outdoor ceremonies to capture the bride and groom fully as they are exchanging their vows and rings. Isn’t that what the day is about after all?
