WELCOME, Couples

Hey there! I’m Bethany, a Newport, Rhode Island engagement photographer specializing in joyful engagement portraits and surprise proposals. I love photographing Rhode Island engagements for laid-back, fun-loving couples in the Newport, RI area including (but not limited to) Jamestown, Tiverton and Bristol.

What is an Engagement Photography Session?

An engagement session, doesn’t document your proposal. Instead, it is a laid-back portrait session planned after the proposal. It helps you get to know your potential wedding photographer and feel comfortable in front the camera. You’ll walk away with sweet memories and photos to remember this exciting time. An engagement photography session usually ends up being like a fun date night!

When to Take Engagement Photos

When should you hire an Newport engagement photographer? The best time to take engagement photos is at least ten months before your wedding date. This way you can use your engagement photos for “save the date” cards, which typically go out six to eight months before your wedding day.

It’s also important to consider the season. Here in Rhode Island, spring and fall are the best seasons for engagement photography. This way you are able to enjoy beautiful seasonal color, while avoiding the more extreme temperatures and humidity of summer and winter. But don’t worry, if you have your heart set on a summer or winter engagement photography, we can make it happen!

What time of day is best for an engagement session in Rhode Island? Engagement sessions are typically scheduled in the early morning or evening to catch the soft, romantic tones of the sunrise or sunset.

What to Wear for Newport Engagement Photos

One of the most common questions clients ask Rhode Island engagement photographers is, “What should I wear for engagement photos?” I suggest wearing something comfortable, but not overly casual. You can’t go wrong with a collared shirt for the guy and a long, flowy dress for the lady. Hats and accessories can be added for a fun, classy touch. For timeless engagement pictures, stick with neutral colors, navy, and blush pink.

If you have more questions or can’t decide between a couple outfits, I’m happy to help. (You can even text me pictures after you book your session!)
