Tom + Hana

Engagement Session

Warren, RI

Sometimes the most magical engagement photos can be taken right in the comfort of your home! It was a snowy winter day when our wedding photographers visited this bride and groom’s cozy home for their casual winter engagement session. This was the perfect option for a photo session in February, since the couple was able to stay warm and still take advantage of the snow on the ground outside. We even got some great photos with their dog included! The next time we’ll see these two is at their fall wedding at the Blithewold Mansion in Bristol, Rhode Island, and our wedding photography team can’t wait!

We are in love with our photos and haven’t stopped looking at them!! We are even more excited than before for our wedding photos and are so glad we have Move Mountains Co to document one of the most important days of our lives!

Aaron + Heather

Salve Regina + Forty Steps

Newport, Rhode Island

Engagement session season picks up right as summer wedding season slows down! Aaron and Heather got to meet up with their wedding photographer right before the winter chill rolled in. This happy couple’s adventure began when they met at Salve Regina in Newport, Rhode Island, so it was such an honor to head back to where it all began for their two-hour engagement session. Our top rated wedding photographers loved getting to know the bride and groom while hearing stories and visiting the spots where they first fell in love. Their engagement shoot was the perfect warm up for their wedding photography and videography this upcoming Fall at Gurney’s in Newport. If you’re recently engaged and looking for a wedding photographer or wedding videographer, we’d love to connect!

My fiancé and I had our engagement photos taken this past fall by Move Mountains Co. and we couldn’t be happier with how they came out! They were amazing to work with and made us feel comfortable in front of the camera. We were blown away by their attention to detail. Our photographer brought us back to our first location after noticing the lighting from the sunset, which turned out to be some of our favorite pictures. We are so excited to work with the entire Move Mountains Co. team for our wedding next fall!

Tim + Katie

Beavertail State Park

Jamestown, RI

We’ve been looking back at our favorite weddings and engagement sessions from previous wedding seasons and we wanted to share a throwback to Tim and Katie’s engagement session at Beavertail State Park in Jamestown, Rhode Island! Their love story began with just a high school crush, it was incredible to see how far this New England couple had come. By the time the sun set on the beach at the end of their photo session, this bride and groom was more than ready for their wedding the following summer. If you’ve ever been on the fence about having an engagement session, our photographers always recommend trying it! Feel free to reach out to us with any questions you may have!

Absolutely incredible team of photographers and videographers! Our wedding day could not have been captured any more beautifully and we are so thankful to Move Mountains for that. If you are looking for a professional, thoughtful and extremely talented group of people- look no further!

Jimmie + Kate's Boat Session

Hawthorne Cove

Salem, MA

We’re not gonna lie, our wedding photography and videography team was a little star struck when we first met Boston-based fashion blogger, Prep of Boston! The first time we met Jimmie and Kate was at their favorite spot in Salem, Massachusetts. It was on their boat and by the docks that these two fell in love, and we loved hearing their collection of memories they shared there! It’s always extra meaningful getting to visit different spots that hold sentimental value to our wedding couples for their engagement sessions! Check out their engagement photos and their engagement video below. If you have a special place in mind that you’d like your engagement photos or engagement video taken, we want to hear about it!

We got married at a residential home in Rhode Island in October 2017 and Move Mountains did an exceptional job capturing the gorgeous weekend. I absolutely love our photos and really enjoyed working with the photographers. Among what I appreciated: their prices were reasonable, they were willing to customize a package that made sense for our wedding needs and the photographers were very responsive to the style of photography we were going for. My only regret is not booking a bit more time with the photographers. Thank you Move Mountains!

Connor + Amanda

Beavertail State Park

Jamestown, RI

Every time we visit Beavertail State Park in Jamestown, Rhode Island to photograph our engagement sessions with our recently engaged couples, it’s easy to see that it’s magical! Connor and Amanda’s engagement shoot with their wedding photographer was no exception! We had a blast navigating the beach’s rocky terrain with these two! This was the perfect opportunity for this couple to get comfortable in front of the camera while getting to know their photographer some more! We can’t wait to see them again when they say “I Do” at Fort Adams this September!

“My fiancé and I just had our engagement photos done, and could not be happier with how they came out! The pictures are absolutely beautiful.. And our photographer had them totally complete in less than a week. I can’t wait to work with them at our wedding.”

Jimmie + Kate

Roger Williams Botanical Center

Providence, RI

What better way to kick off the new year than to share some favorite engagement photos from our engagement photo session with fashion blogger, Prep of Boston! Fun fact: this engagement session was also featured on The Newport Bride! Photographing Kate and Jimmie always feels like catching up with old friends! We had the pleasure of shooting this bride and groom’s engagement session at the Roger Williams Botanical Center in Providence, Rhode Island this past fall! We love this down to earth New England couple for their style, taste for adventure, and their natural ease in front of the camera! Our wedding photography and wedding videography team can’t wait to see them again at their wedding this May at Misselwood in Beverly, Massachusetts! If you’re recently engaged and looking for a photographer or videographer for your engagement session or wedding, let us know!

“Sean not only takes creative and thoughtful images, but is also a joy to work with. He makes the subject of his photos shine no matter what their special occasion is, and manages to produce images that are personal and unique to them. Recommend times a million!!”

Daniel + Chelsea

The Bohlin

Newport, RI

One thing’s for sure: Dan and Chelsea know how to throw a party! Our wedding photography and videography team had a blast at this bright summer wedding! This fun-loving couple had an effortless wedding day seeing all that Newport, Rhode Island had to offer! They took on the nautical town by trolley and hit some classic Newport landmark spots for their wedding photos and wedding film! After starting the day at RaNew Salon, we were able to have their first look photographed at the elegant and beautiful Salve Regina University! After saying “I Do” at The Bohlin, they were whisked away to the sailing docks to take a quick breath and get some beautiful photos along the water! After this, it was straight to the tent reception that they had all been waiting for! Our bride and groom danced the night away, and our photo and video team was there to catch all of the best moments! We hope you enjoy!

I wish I could give 10 stars! I am so happy that we found the team at Move Mountains Co. to be our photographers and videographer for our special day. Our engagement session with Sean was awesome because it gave us an opportunity to meet each other before the big day and for him to get to know our personalities. Nicole, the Studio Manager, was great to work with, as she was quick to respond via e-mail and always available to answer my never ending questions over the phone. Day-of shooters were Sean and Tiahna and they were so great, especially because they patient with our large bridal party, which at times was a rowdy crew!
