roger williams botanical center wedding - kate + geoff

Wedding and engagement season is finally here! It’s been a loooong winter and I am so excited to start making new photographs with some really awesome couples! Before we get started on new stuff for 2015 I thought I should probably blog some stuff from last fall. (Jeez what have I been doing this whole winter??)

When I got my first full frame, big girl camera (as I like to call it) back in 2012, the first place I went was the Roger Williams Botanical Center. I took way too many photos of flowers and plants that day just oohing and aaahing at how incredible my new gear was. I also snagged this photo of a butterfly that still hangs in my bathroom today! On that day, the budding photographer that I was thought “man, it would be so great to photograph a wedding here someday.” Well thanks to Kate + Geoff last October I got to do just that! 

Kate had the good fortune of growing up a hop, skip and a jump away from Roger Williams Park so the Botanical Center was an easy choice considering it was practically her own back yard as a kid. The day was full of laughter and love and it was the perfect way to end my busiest wedding season yet. Here are some (ok, a lot) of my favorites from the big day. I hope you enjoy!
