Peter + Jean

CASTLE HILL INN

NEWPORT, RI

Photographing some weddings are just a dream! Peter and Jean’s wedding at Castle Hill Inn happened to be one of those. Sometimes as wedding photographers we get the perfect mix of a sweet couple, a chic feel, and perfect weather! And when it melts together you get a beautiful wedding with stunning wedding photos! Newport, Rhode Island is always a hot spot for engaged couples around wedding season, and Peter and Jean took it by storm. Soft details complimented their tangible love all throughout the day. Peter and Jean booked Sean and Tiahna for “I Do Too” wedding photography package. You can meet them, and the rest of the team here. The bright sun tends to bring intense exposures and crisp shadows, which can be a challenge for shooting wedding portraits. But for this couple, our team knew how to make it work! The light complimented them perfectly, creating bold but beautiful photos on this memorable day! We can’t get enough of Newport!

Top 5 Engagement Shoot Locations in Rhode Island

Couples can sometimes get caught up on choosing a location for their engagement shoot (whether you should have an engagement shoot is another blog post for another time, the short answer is, yes.) This blog post compiles of some of our favorite places to date!

When choosing a spot, we like to first defer to the couple as to what they like: nature, the city, their home, etc. Personally, we love nature and we've found that Rhode Island has plenty of versatile spots from the cliffs of Jamestown to the trails of The Audubon Society.


Botanical Gardens

Providence, RI

You really can't beat the Botanical Gardens in Roger Williams Park. There's nowhere else like it, and can be shot in year round which helps for those wintery sessions, not to mention that the light is always great!

Fort Adams

Newport, RI

We love Fort Adams for its historic, rustic, and non-traditional feel! It has tons of halls, stairways, and greens to explore, making it the perfect place to get some of the best shots!

Second Beach

Who doesn't love the beach? Second Beach in Newport, RI is our favorite seaside spot to catch those classic, bold, and bright wedding engagement photos that everyone loves! You really can't go wrong with its minimalistic and airy look.

Forty Steps

Newport, RI

And last but certainly not least, we couldn't talk about engagement sessions without mentioning Forty Steps in Newport! Navigating its rough terrain is always a blast, and makes for some dramatic and beautiful engagement photos!

Dan + Sarah

FORT WETHERILL

Jamestown, RI

As wedding photographers, our hope is that being in front of the camera is never nerve-wracking and always a good time! Dan and Sarah were able to keep cool and have a blast at their wedding engagement session at Fort Wetherill in Jamestown, Rhode Island. This relaxed, intimate park just outside of Newport, Rhode Island created the best atmosphere for an adventure with Sean, their wedding photographer. Between playful splashes in the water to cozying up in their towels, this couple was able to have a memorable time getting to know their wedding photographer, and they got some stunning photos as a result! Stay tuned for their wedding photos and wedding highlight video shot at Glen Manor House in Portsmouth, Rhode Island!

Sam + Jeff

Blithewold Mansion

Bristol, RI 

This time last year, we had the pleasure of capturing photos and video for Sam and Jeff’s dream wedding at the beautiful Blithewold Mansion in Bristol, Rhode Island! We had the best time exploring the Mansion’s lush grounds during their first look and bridal party session. The romantic atmosphere and tasteful decor choices made for bright, clean wedding photos that everybody loves! Sam and Jeff purchased the Deluxe, which is one of our most popular wedding photography and wedding videography combo packages! This wound up being the perfect package to capture everything for Jeff and Sam not just in their photos, but also in their wedding highlight video! Check it out below:

Brett + Bryce

Roger Williams Botanical Gardens + Coventry Sand Dunes

Cranston, RI

The Botanical Gardens in Providence, Rhode Island became the perfect oasis for Brett and Bryce's mid-winter wedding engagement session. We love coming to this tropical greenhouse year-round for both engagements and weddings! Afterwards, we braved the cold at the Coventry Sand Dunes to get some beautiful, classic beach shots. It may have been January, but the results were totally worth it! Brett and Bryce's photos were taken by Sean as part of the Deluxe package: one of our most popular offers for wedding photography and wedding videography. Their taste for adventure and sense of fun made for one of our most memorable shoots to date! We can't wait for their wedding at the Providence G Ballroom in Providence, RI!
