Last week, we (my husband came too!) met Laura and Mike in Rhode Island for their sunset engagement session along the cliffs of Newport. To say this session was a check off my bucket list is an understatement, but when Laura told me she currently lives outside of Newport, I was super excited to travel their for their engagement pictures!
As I was driving up to Newport, I was checking the weather to determine which of the 3 nights I was staying in town would be perfect for their engagement session. It seemed like the first night there was going to be perfect (and that sunset glow did not disappoint)! Once we used up all the light of the evening, and the wind had completely taken control of Laura’s hair we decided to finish up their session along Bellevue Avenue the next evening, when we were blessed with another beautiful evening. This time, a gentle breeze as well, instead of gale force winds 😉 How gorgeous is this row of Hydrangeas?
The cliffs overlooking the ocean in Newport are stunning…and fierce. I was totally mesmerized by the crashing of waves along the huge rocks, and the wind! With her insider info, Laura had some great places scouted out for pictures. Laura and Mike are such naturals in front of the camera. I was constantly telling them to “freeze” and “do that again” because Mike kept stealing little forehead kisses and naturally “knuzzling!” Laura is a very talented photographer herself, and I am honored that she and Mike have entrusted me to photograph this special time in their lives!
I can’t wait to celebrate with them on the big day at The Ryland Inn this coming January!
