The snow was in the air last week as I met Heather and Ross in Narragansett to photograph their engagement session. It ended up just being flurries, but we were up for anything! We started at the rocks at the end of Newton Ave with the wind whipping off the water and the snowflakes swirling every direction around us. Heather and Ross did great despite the cold temps and the frigid wind off the water. Next stop was the Point Judith lighthouse where we used the jagged rocks as a backdrop for more pictures. We shot back towards the lighthouse from a nearby vantage point after that and ended up at Sand Hill Cove to finish off our time.
One of the reasons I love shooting engagement sessions is the way I get to connect a little bit with the couple to avoid any uncertainty on their wedding day – it’s tough to have a camera pointed in your face for that amount of time! If we can get some of that out of the way beforehand, it’s good for the images and it puts the couple at ease on their wedding day. Heather and Ross were instantly comfortable in front of my camera. It helps that I’ve known Heather for many years, but I think the real reason is that she and Ross are truly in love and weren’t afraid to show it during our session.
These are just a few of my favorites from their engagement session! Thanks Heather and Ross for spending some time with me last week! I’m looking forward to June!
