favorite wedding photos of 2012

Last year I closed out my seventh season as a wedding photographer, I'm very grateful that this is what I get to do for a profession. Here's a slideshow of some of my favorite wedding photos from 2012, thanks to all my amazing and beautiful clients for making it yet another successful year!

Wishing everyone a wonderful year ahead! 


wedding at the aldrich mansion

Last weekend I photographed the gorgeous winter wedding of Brynn and John at the Aldrich Mansion in Warwick, RI. It was a picture perfect winter day with even a little bit of snow. After their preparations at the Providence Biltmore, we headed over to the ceremony and reception at the mansion. High Definition kept the dance floor packed, Studio 539 Flowers provided the elegant floral arrangements, and Scrumptions created the cute cake. 

Here are some favorites from the day:

warwick, ri engagement photos

Yesterday I had the pleasure of getting to know Jenn and Eric while shooting their engagement photos at Oakland Beach in Warwick, RI. The light was gorgeous and the couple was super relaxed and down to earth. I'm looking forward to their wedding in the spring at the Atlantic Beach Club.

woodstock, ct engagement photos

Engagement session season rolls on... I met up with Sara and Brad in Woodstock, CT for some engagement photos in and around the grounds of the Inn at Woodstock Hill. The two will also be getting married next year at Woodstock Hill, it was a nice to have the chance to walk the grounds where they'll be wed together. These two are super easy to photograph, I can't wait for their wedding in June!

providence engagement photos

Last weekend I met up with Carrie and Habi for some engagement photos, we started off at Colt State Park in Bristol then headed over to Waterplace Park in downtown Providence. I really love photographing engagement sessions as it gives me a chance to get to know the couple, and see how they photograph, while also giving them a chance to get used to my pace and style of shooting. I'm really looking forward to their wedding next summer at the Providence Biltmore.

I met up with Jennifer and Ryan for their engagement session in Boston. We started out at the Common and ended up walking our way through the back streets of Boston. I'm really looking forward to shooting their wedding next August, they were so cute and super friendly. Should be a really nice wedding!

worldwide photowalk day in providence, ri

I had a awesome time getting out and snapping some photos as the walk leader of the Scott Kelby WorldWide Photowalk in Providence, RI . It was great to hang out with some old and new friends, talk photography, and enjoy the nice weather. 

You can check out some of the group's photos here on our flickr page: http://www.flickr.com/groups/providence-photowalk-2012/ I'm looking forward to seeing all of the other photographer's images!

nice thank you from the mother of the bride

Here's a nice thank you note I received from the mother of the bride:

Dear Andre,

I am the mother of the bride, Shannon, and she passed on your photos to us that you recently sent her. WOW !!!
I must tell you what a beautiful job you and your partner did on Shannon's wedding day of making everyone feel so relaxed and comfortable, but to see the gorgeous photos you created is icing on the cake! They are so perfect and better than I even imagined they could be! There is only one chance to capture the moment perfectly and it seems like you and your partner did exactly that. I am most grateful to you for allowing us to relive our daughter's special day in such splendid photos.
Thank you so much for doing such a wonderful job. I wish that I lived in Rhode Island so that I could recommend you to all of my friends who are planning a special occasion. Be assured however, that if anyone is going to wed anywhere near Providence, they will be getting a referral from me to you! 
With sincere gratitude,
