I get asked all the time, what’s your favorite location to photograph Rhode Island engagement sessions? And my first answer is always…where the couple has a place of belonging or nostalgia – their home, a first date location, a beach they visit every year on vacation, a favorite coffee shop, etc.
If you are not from Rhode Island or really can’t pinpoint a favorite spot, here are my top 10 locations for Rhode Island engagement sessions. I typically allow two locations during my sessions. These two locations must be within 10-15 minutes driving distance. It also allows for an outfit change if client’s prefer. And some time and space to catch your breath and relax your jaw:)
OCEAN DRIVE | NEWPORT, RI
BLITHEWOLD MANSION | BRISTOL, RI
GOOSEWING BEACH | LITTLE COMPTON, RI
FOGLAND BEACH + SAPOWET MARSH | TIVERTON, RI
YOUR WEDDING VENUE (In this case, Squantum Association)
WESTERLY + WATCH HILL, RI
PROSPECT TERRACE | PROVIDENCE, RI
BEAVERTAIL | JAMESTOWN, RI
2ND BEACH | NEWPORT, RI
PRESCOTT FARM | MIDDLETOWN, RI
This guide is super helpful for what to bring, what to wear, and how to best prepare. Engagement sessions are one of my favorite sessions to document – you are only engaged for such a short season of life! What a treasure to have these images to showcase your “honeymoon phase” and all the joys in this season.
