Chris + Christina

Brenton Point + Fort Adams

Newport, RI

Chris and Christina held an intimate elopement ceremony this past month to celebrate their love and life together, and our wedding photographers had the chance to document it! This adventurous couple set out against the winter wind and even some rain to get some elegant, dramatic portrait photos at Brenton Point State Park and at Fort Adams. After being together for almost six years, Chris and Christina’s romantic story and excitement to elope came to life in their photographs! It was a misty, magical day, and this bride and groom took it by storm!

These folks were great. They were a pleasure to deal with and were very creative in their approach. They accommodated all of our random photo requests and their own ideas blew us away, and we got our photos back sooner than we expected. I recommend them whole heartedly!

The Morning Of

Getting the Best Bride Prep Photos

You wouldn't think it at first, but some of our favorite wedding photos/videos are taken in the morning when the bride is getting ready! It’s the beginning of the day, excitement is in the air, and we don’t want to miss a thing. This is a critical time for your wedding photographers to capture some really important photos that you’ll love to look back on later. In order to make sure that your bride prep looks great, here are a few suggestions that we can offer!

Location

We recommend choosing a space/location that is open, has plenty of natural light and is free of clutter! This will ensure the photographer or videographer has plenty of light and room to work with and will keep your photos looking nice and clean! Try to avoid hotel rooms that are cramped and don't provide much natural lighting. Indoor lighting can be difficult to work with and usually produces orange skin tones, and hotel rooms can also be limiting when trying to find a nice place to shoot details, such as the dress! Often times these rooms have TVs, phones, desks and lamps which can take away from the elegance of the dress and other details that need to be shot.

If you've already scheduled a hotel or are in a smaller/darker space this is totally okay! Here are a few tips for working in this type of space:

  • Make sure your hair and make up artists position you by a window (This is important in any scenario, we love natural light!)

  • Keep indoor lighting off, it may feel dark but the pictures and video will still come out bright!

  • Keep the space clean

 
 

Details

Be sure to bring all the details that you want us to photograph or catch on video on the morning of. This may include but is not limited to:

  • Shoes

  • Dress

  • Wood or Custom hanger for the dress (Example)

  • Bridesmaid dresses

  • Invitations

  • Rings (All 3)

  • Ring Box (Example) (Another Example!)

  • Any jewelry 

  • Any card/gift you'll be exchanging with your fiancé

  • Your bouquet

 
 

Time

Bride prep is such an important part of the day and can sometimes be neglected and undervalued. This is the most relaxed time of the day: you're spending time with your girls, getting pampered, and getting ready to say I do! It’s a great time for your photographer or videographer to warm up and build a rapport with you, your bridesmaids, and your family! But beyond that, shooting details takes time! We ask that you give our team at least an hour (but we recommend more) to style invitations, rings, florals and shoes, and also find the best place to hang your dress!

If we are shooting video and you're planning on exchanging cards on the morning of, please allow your videographer an extra 15 minutes to capture good visuals and audio!

We hope that this is helpful for you as you continue your wedding planning! As always, feel free to reach out to us with any questions you may have!

 
 

Tim + Katie

Aqua Blue

Narragansett, RI

Tim and Katie brought the energy to Narragansett, Rhode Island with their bright eyes and huge smiles. This adventurous couple tied the knot at the elegant St. Mary’s Star of the Sea Church, but our wedding team’s favorite moment of the day easily was climbing the rocky terrain for their photo session at the Black Point Trailhead walking path. Their bridal party was larger than life and their love story was a pleasure for our wedding photography and wedding videography team to retell. Tim and Katie booked the "Deluxe Too" wedding package, which includes two photographers and two videographers. We'll never forget the enthusiastic crowd, the high energy couple, and killer venue that made this wedding what it was!

Frank + Robyn

Beavertail State Park

Jamestown, RI

Beavertail State Park in Jamestown, Rhode Island just might be our most highly sought after engagement session location! Our wedding photographers love this spot for its hilly terrain, dynamic landscape, and proximity to the ocean! Our wedding couples can’t get enough of this naturally beautiful place for their engagement photos, no matter what season! Most recently, we hit our favorite spot with Frank and Robyn to photograph their dreamy, romantic engagement session. The cool autumn breeze and setting sun made for some beautifully warm-toned photos for these two to enjoy! There are plenty of photo session locations in Rhode Island to explore, and we’d love to book your engagement session and check them out together!

Move Mountains Co. delivers every time. I have had the opportunity of working with them on several occasions (Baby announcements, maternity shoots, and newborn photos) and was blown away each time. The photos are natural, clean, candid and just breathtaking! I love that I have these special moments to look back on!!

Mike + Kelly

Hotel Viking

Their silliness and fun was unapologetic, and we couldn’t get enough of it!

We are so happy we stumbled upon Move Mountains Co. when looking for our wedding photographer and videographer! From the first time I met with Sean at a coffee shop to go over our vision of our wedding, to the day they delivered our photos and video, we couldn’t have been happier. Their easy going team made us feel completely comfortable on the biggest day of our lives, and everything came out better than we could have imagined. We’re so thankful for the wedding memories we will have for a lifetime!

Paul + Meredith

Fort Adams

Newport, RI

Paul and Meredith’s romantic summer wedding was not one to be forgotten! Our wedding team had the honor of shooting both photo and video for this sweet couple at Fort Adams in Newport, Rhode Island! Our wedding photographers and wedding videographers loved getting to explore the venue’s diverse architecture, giving our team multiple opportunities to shoot photos both inside and outside! Whether it be inside for the first look, down by the water for bridal party photos, or inside the tent for the reception, we couldn’t get enough of their simple elegance! And of course, we couldn’t forget that AMAZING dessert bar, complimented by the ice cream shop where the bride and groom first met! It was a pleasure getting to capture and share their unique, sentimental story for them to relive in the years to come! If you’re planning your wedding and looking for your photography and videography team to catch moments like these, reach out to us and we can make it happen!

Sean and his team at Move Mountains could not have been better to work with. Their professionalism and expertise took so much stress out of our day and our comfort with the Move Mountains photographers really showed in our photos. Our video came out exactly how we asked and the entire team went above and beyond to make our day special. We couldn’t recommend Move Mountains enough to anyone planning their wedding!

Chris + Marissa

The Dean Hotel + Bolt Coffee

Providence, RI

We took to the streets of Providence, Rhode Island with Chris and Marissa for their city engagement session! The crisp winter air had nothing on this adventurous couple, we set out to explore and wound up over at Bolt Coffee and The Dean Hotel! Laughs were exchanged over great coffee and great conversations as this couple got to bond with their wedding photographer! We couldn’t be more pleased with these urban engagement photos, and we can’t wait to see Chris and Marissa again to photograph and shoot video at their wedding at Hotel Providence!


Choosing Move Mountains was one of the best vendor decisions we made for our wedding. Everything was seamless and superb. We were able to organize photographers, a videographer, a gopro, photo booth, extra time for added sessions without any difficulty. The photographs speak for themselves and are SUPERB! They are so natural and stunning. The team was such a pleasure to work with. They all went above and beyond our expectations and showed up early, stayed late and were by our side for the entire LONG day as well as evening before. They were never intrusive, but fun to be around and made our day that much better. Nothing felt cheesy or forced. Highly highly recommend! Best decision we made and we couldn’t be happier!
