WELCOME, Couples

Hey there! I’m Bethany, a Newport, RI engagement photographer specializing in joyful engagement portraits and surprise proposals. I love working with laid-back, fun-loving couples in the Newport, Rhode Island area including 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 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? 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 Engagement Photos

One of the most common questions clients ask 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!)

How Much Does an Engagement Photographer Cost?

I believe that getting to know my couples is the best way that I can serve them on their wedding day. Knowing your individual personalities and how you interact as a couple helps me make your experience more meaningful.

For this reason, if you hire me as your wedding photographer, the cost of your engagement photography will be applied to your wedding package as part of your initial payment!

Newport RI Engagement Portrait Sessions start at $475
