Engagement photos are a great way to highlight a couples unique interests. Horses, your pet, your new home, wine, beer, the beach, there are thousands of things couples love that would make for great engagement photos! This winter we meet with Will and D Photography at Newport Storm Brewery and Newport Distilling Company and let love “brew”. Punny, right?
Since freshman year, these college sweethearts have been inseparable. Katie grew up on Aquidneck Island and Newport was one of her favorite spots. Tom proposed on the couples five-year anniversary at sunrise at Purgatory Chasm overlooking Second Beach. It was a chilly day in March, but with a beautifully clear sky and a gorgeous sunrise. The couple returned to the same spot for their engagement photos by Julia Elizabeth Photography. We love Katie and Tom’s e-sesh and can’t wait to see their wedding at Trinity Church & Blithewold Mansion this September!
After KJP and Sarah KJP’s Christmas Tree Farm Wedding last year, we’ve been dreaming of photo shoots with budding trees. This winter we meet with Will and D Photography at Sweet Berry Farm for the Christmas Tree Farm shoot of our dreams complete with skipping through a field, great surprise faces for the proposal, and even some great winter sweaters. It’s everything we dreamed it would be! You’re going to want to see every single picture. With a fun-loving couple like this, it’s practically guaranteed that the pictures will be adorable!
If you’re anything like me, you’ve dreamed of frolicking through a field of flowers with your significant other in tow. If you’re like me, that’s never happened. My flower-loving dreams might not have come true, but Nicole and Craig’s did! Their engagement pictures were taken a field of blooming sunflowers!
This second part of our engagement styled shoot on the beautiful island of Nantucket starts at the stunning 21 Broad and wanders around downtown. For this styled e-sesh we made the most of the beautiful boutique hotel and went for a bit of a lifestyle feel. Our models (yes, they’re actually an adorable engaged couple in real life) arm wrestled, fiddled with the record player, and went for a casual stroll down mainstreet. Continue reading
A weekend by the sea is pretty much the most romantic way a couple can spend a few days away. Partnering with local photographer Barbara Clarke Photography we styled Kristina and Mike’s engagement pictures on beautiful Nantucket Island. Styling your engagement shoot might seem overly dramatic, but when you see the results, we promise you’ll want to have yours styled too. Continue reading
Newport is home to hundreds of gorgeous victorian and gilded homes. The infamous Newport Mansions boast unmatched grandeur, but they aren’t the only ones with beauty and grace. For this winter styled shoot we choose the glamorous Gilded Hotel on Brinley Street in Newport. Part of the Lark Hotel Group, Gilded is one of a handful of gorgeous boutique hotels across the country that perfectly encompasses the best of historical charm and modern elegance. Converting two homes into one boutique hotel, Gilded has all the curious nooks and crannies of a century old home and the modern conveniences of a luxury hotel. It’s perfect! We loved Gilded so much we decided to break the shoot into two segments, one casual engagement shoot and one more formal elopement shoot. Working with the talented Kim from Kim Lyn Photography and Sarah from Blush and Dirt for hair and makeup, we had a first rate group as the pictures are proof.
With everything from sea-side charm to gilded-age architecture, Newport is a perfect place to take your engagement pictures. There are so many choices, when Tyler and Julianna got engaged they couldn’t pick just one spot for pictures! They went to few locations around the city. Starting at Ochre Court they wandered around Bellevue Avenue, went over to Brenton Point, then to Fort Adams for views of the harbor, and finished at Julianna’s grandmother’s house for views from the family property. The couple choose Newport for their wedding and it seemed only fitting that they had their engagement pictures here too!
