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!

Kevin + Danielle

Castle Island

Boston, MA

Kevin and Danielle took full advantage of their winter engagement session to explore all that Castle Island had to offer. This diverse Boston photo session location had parks, long walkways, and beaches for the happy couple to enjoy with their wedding photographer. The snow on the ground and overcasted skies made for a perfect winter landscape. As for the New England couple, this bride and groom was down to earth, relaxed, and a joy to hang out with! We can’t wait to see them again at their Crowne Plaza Wedding in Warwick, Rhode Island this coming Fall!

The photographers at Move Mountains Co are amazing. They make you feel so comfortable, and do a great job of blending into the background while also capturing all the moments you want. They were also extremely flexible and I really appreciated the attention to detail. I would highly recommend them to anyone!

Curtis + Kim

Coonamessett Farm

East Falmouth, MA

September of 2018 was a wild ride for us, but Curtis and Kim’s Cape Cod wedding fell at just the right time! After their Spring engagement session at Beavertail State Park, our wedding photographers couldn’t wait to reunite with this bride and groom! It was the first day of Autumn and Cape Cod was in full bloom. Coonamessett Farm in East Falmouth, Massachusetts became the perfect rustic backdrop for Curtis and Kim to tie the knot! Our wedding photography team had the best time exploring the farm grounds with the couple, and taking a break between photos to say hi to the alpacas! If you’re getting married along the Cape, our wedding team would love to help make it happen! Contact us here.

We love the emotion and the candid moments that Move Mountains captured of the day! We are so happy with the shot style, gorgeous work!

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!

 
 

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!

Curt + Tanya

Ocean Cliff

Newport, RI

Curt and Tanya's bright summer wedding at Ocean Cliff Hotel was a day to remember. Wedding photographers and wedding videographers often seek to capture that raw, genuine emotion that shined in Curt and Tanya’s excitement and anticipation. Their soft details from the pastel floral arrangements to the lacy wedding dress added simple elegance to their wedding day at one of Newport, Rhode Island’s most beloved wedding venues. With bright sunlight and full hearts, their wedding photos and highlight film were a sure hit. Curt and Tanya had two photographers and two videographers on their wedding team to ensure that they’d be able to relive every moment of their special day. If you’d like the same for your upcoming wedding, we can make it happen!

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!
