Hallelujah, the sun does exist! After weeks of grey, cold rainy days, summer emerged and gave the most perfect day of warmth and sun. This couple had been waiting for the right time to get those golden-light shots out by the water. We chose the quintessential Newport location, the Castle Hill lighthouse. This location offers one of the best views of the Newport Bridge, the open ocean and the setting sun! We had such a fun time wandering around finding the beautiful light! I can’t wait to photograph their wedding next year the Viking Hotel!
Wedding season is officially here and I love that we started this season off with a springtime engagement session at the Elms Mansion here in Newport! Michael and Mary are getting married at the end of June at the beautiful Linden Place Estate in Bristol! I love seeing what couples are going to wear to their engagement session and how the outfits always perfectly match their personalities and the backgrounds! Mary wore the most gorgeous soft pink dress and jacket outfit which was perfect for the pink blooms and the pastel colors of the historic home. The Elms mansion is also one of my favorite locations to photograph because of the potential it has. Every season the grounds offer something new to work with whether it be blooming trees, green leaves in all it’s glory on the willows or the dance the sun has on the grounds as it moves across the sky throughout the year. This session was so much fun and I’m very much looking forward to their wedding in June.
