Can you believe it’s 2016!? 2015 was a HUGE year for Jaclyn L Photography as it was the biggest year yet and we are so thrilled to have worked with so many amazing couples.

Last year (2014) was the year of traveling, bringing us to lots of new places. This year was filled mostly with weddings right in our own backyard. Castle Hill Inn, the Chanler, Rosecliff, Glen Manor, the Vanderbilt Grace and more! To make beautiful images we got to use the breathtaking ocean views that Newport has to offer as well as the architecture of the mansions and play inside the most amazing trees. I loved being able to explore the different venues and making each wedding’s images unique to the couple. For new venues, this year brought us into Providence, Mystic CT and in the Fall, out to Western Massachusetts. My favorite new venue was the Providence Public Library. It was filled with so much history, architecture and amazing light! Mystic Seaport was a close second with it’s quaint historic village, large ships and water views.

Along with photographing so many awesome weddings and engagement sessions for upcoming couples, we had the opportunity to photograph where it all begins… at the proposal. We had four amazing proposals take place at Castle Hill Inn’s lighthouse. I love being able to capture these moments, especially the surprised look on the ladies faces when they see the ring and realize what’s happening.

2016 is going to be another great year of fabulous weddings, engagements, proposals and coming in the spring of 2016 something {NEW!}. I can’t wait to share. Happy New Year!

I love photographing proposals especially in the picturesque setting of the Castle Hill lighthouse. Justin had been planning his proposal for over a year because he wanted it to be extra special. The two are from out of town and it was Carmela’s birthday that brought them to Newport. Little did she know that she was going to get an extra special birthday present. I have to say her reaction was priceless and she couldn’t stop staring at the her beautiful new ring! Congratulations to Justin and Carmela!

Vince proposed to Becky last week at sunset overlooking the bay from Castle Hill Inn‘s lighthouse! It was the most romantic thing I have ever seen. A theme through out their relationship has been purple flowers. Vince picked not only the perfect evening but the perfect season as there were purple flowers all along the rocks.

As the sun set, Vince got down on one knee and popped the question. Becky with her adorable smile said “YES!”. We took a few more photos as they enjoyed the moment and watched the sky glow a beautiful pastel pink. Congratulations Becky and Vince!

This past week I got to photograph another amazing Castle Hill Inn proposal here in Newport, RI. Dan had come up with the perfect plan to propose to his girl! It was Dan’s birthday weekend and as a “surprise” to him his girlfriend planned a trip to Newport. Where did she get that idea you say? With the help of the family they were able to give her the idea to book a weekend at Castle Hill. They had a great “birthday dinner” planned but that quickly turned into an engagement dinner! Her face says it all. She was thrilled and of course she said yes!! :) Congratulations you two!
